Judge Mrs Jan Reital

(1st show in almost 2 yrs, Samson was 4 yrs old then)


Evansville KC (3/20/99) was the first time in almost two years I had taken Samson to a show.  He crashed through a fence as a youngster and injured his head (damaged the growth plates).  His muzzle didn't grow out correctly, and his face is pushed in and crooked, also he is 'old fashioned' looking - though he is otherwise EXCELLENT.  I decided to show him at these Louisville shows 'just for fun', and had SO much fun with him - he REALLY LOVES to show - decided to continue showing him even though I didn't think he could ever win.  I cried all over the judge when he won his first AKC Championship point.  And LOOK at what he has done!  God Bless YOU Mrs. Marilyn Spacht - and ALL these judges - for looking past his obvious minor faults (due to INJURY) and noticing what a truly wonderful boy he is!    He is from our very first home bred litter, and my very first 'show dog', so, YES, these are all 'novice brags' here.  I don't know if he will finish, given his handicaps, but I WILL NOT give up on this boy again.  Look for him at the shows - he is quite the ham, and loves attention!  Even if he doesn't ever finish his Championship, the excellence of the competition he defeats on a regular basis under a variety of judges proves what excellent quality he IS. NOTE:SAMSON IS RETIRED NOW, AS HE BROKE HIS CANINE TOOTH.  He's still a big ham, so watch for him at Veteran's Parades at Specialty shows in the next year or two.Lynda R. Farley, Samson's Breeder/Owner/Novice Handler
