|I began as a breeder-owner-handler in the early 1970's with my Scottish Terriers. I have whelped 20+ litters and shown 20+ Scotties to their AKC championship titles. I was the top Scottie owner-handler in the US with two different dogs in the 80's and 90's. In 2006 I owned the #1 Scottie bitch (#2 overall), a multi group, multi BIS, and multi BISS winner; CH. Wychwood Wyndola of Duff-De who was shown by Bergit Kabel. I have also bred and owned several other multi group and multi BISS winners as well as the top producing Scottie brood bitch 20 years.
Although my judging schedule has forced me to cut back on breeding and limited my available time for showing, i am staying somewhat active and have produced two litters in the past 6 years. Two boys in the first litter completed their AKC championships with their new owner-handlers and two girls from the more recent litter 4 years ago have also finished their championships. I kept one of the girls and returned to the show ring as an exhibitor for the firs time in 7 years and finished "Hannah" myself. It was exciting and challenging to show once again and be in the ring on the other side of the lead. I also hope to breed this girl next spring and have fun with some puppies again.
With regard to judging, I was first approved for Scottish Terriers in 1983 and completed approval for the Terrier Group in 1991. Since then, I have been approved to judge the Toy Group and then completed the Working Group in 2010. More recently, I have been approved to judge several Hounds, including Beagles, Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Pharaoh Hounds, Scottish Deerhounds, PBGV’s, Whippets, Norwegian Elkhounds, and Bulldog’s, Bichons, and Lowchen in the Non-Sporting Group. Currently, I am working to complete those groups. My judging travels have taken me to Scotland, Sweden, Mexico, Dominican Republic, almost every province in Canada, as well as most of the states across the US.
I truly enjoy seeing and judging the dogs and have fun doing it. I also try to make it an enjoyable experience for the exhibitors, their dogs, and the spectators too.
