He did enjoy showing himself off, except he did not like slippery floors. Due to his enjoyment of shows we did show him a lot.
He was entered in 78 classes. He won 49 of them. He was placed in the first three at another 16 of them. He was unplaced in just 2 classes. For a time he dominated the shows and his Record of wins was unique for the time as they were all won under different judges.
We sold him to Mr & Mrs Cake in Australia when he was 4 years old. He won his Australian title in just 4 shows winning Best in Show awards as well. (The quickest a dog can win his Aus Ch Title is 4 shows. They need 100 points and maximum at any show is 25 points) He was hardly used at stud in his new country which was a pity as Mr H Spira who judged Best in Show at Crufts said he was a better dog than the dog he awarded Best in Show at this show.
