|The sign in my office reads "Full Time Dog Man-Part Time Attorney". I started in dogs in 1980, just a couple of years after beginning my practice. Picking my first German Shorthaired Pointer puppy, at ten weeks of age, I did a pretty good job. Rommel was a top ten dog, along with being my versatile dog—doing obedience and NAVHDA. I have remained active and successful in this breed. My bitch was Best of Breed at Westminster in 2010 and she went on to be the top producing dam for 2011. Her son garnered my first All Breed Best In Show with a German Shorthaired Pointer, in 2013. He was top producing sire for 2013 and 2014.
With my first wife, I exhibited Afghan Hounds for many years. Then, I did some showing and breeding of English Cocker Spaniels and Golden Retrievers. However, my next big venture was with Pointers. Since 1990, I have been involved with this breed. Owning and breeding many Group and Best In Show winners. Most have had their hunting titles, too. One Best In Show bitch also was the top Field Trial puppy, a previous year.
Acquiring a German Wirehaired Pointer bitch in 1995, I campaigned her to the top ten. A bitch from her litter was shown by me to the top ten, three years in a row. During this time, I also owned a Miniature Wirehaired Dachshund.
My experience with the three Pointer breeds led me to present a comparison seminar about them. I now judge the entire Sporting Group, Best In Show and a number of Hounds. I have officiated at the German Shorthaired and Wirehaired Pointer, Pointer Club of Canada and Golden Retriever Nationals. My Wife and I live with, show and hunt a GSP in Wesley Chapel, Florida. I co-own a number of other GSPs, that allow me to remain active in conformation, breeding, hunt tests and field trials.
We collect dog art and travel to Cruft's regularly. I have judged in Colombia, Canada and Sweden.
