SAM WAS BEST OF BREED BOTH DAYS AT MATTAPONI KENNEL CLUB SHOWS, PICTURED HERE WITH PAM MINNICH, HANDLER AND #1 SAM FAN. GOING BEST OF BREED OVER SEVERAL SPECIALS EARNED SAM GRAND CHAMPIONSHIP POINTS, AND RAISED HIS GCH LEVEL TO BRONZE.
DIRECTLY BEHIND SAM IS CH MOHNER’S LEGACY FOR HALCYON (“JULIE”) BEST OF OPPOSITE TO SAM EACH DAY. SAM AND JULIE’S DAUGHTER, HALCYON’S ADDICTED TO LOVE (“CARLY”) WAS BEST OF WINNERS BOTH DAYS, EARNING ANOTHER TWO MAJORS. CARLY IS THIRD IN LINE IN THIS PHOTO BELOW.
“Kolja” finished his American Championship going Best of Winners at the Knickerbocker Standard Schnauzer Club, defeating a huge entry during the Standard Schnauzer Club of America’s National Specialty week July 6, 2012.
“Lucas” showed his powerful drive the first time he entered the sheep herding ring for his herding instinct test. According to the AKC Herding Instinct Evaluator, Susan Rhoades, Lucas sustained interest, worked silently, readily adjusted temperament and balance to the sheep’s movement and kept stock grouped. Two other Halcyon entries also passed the instinct test–CH Halcyon’s Willy Wonka and Halcyon’s Valentino.
Mohner’s Legacy for Halcyon, “Julie,” took a dim view of those smelly creatures.
