Sam was a remarkable little dog. His show career was amazing.
BIS wins (championship) at:
All Breeds; Group Specialty; and Breed Specialty
He also won the ACT CONTEST OF CHAMPIONS in 1991
One of Sam's most amazing achievements was winning Best in Group - without a lead! The lead broke when we went to do our "around the ring". Never to be outshown - Sam simply kept going right around the ring and when we came back to the judge he stopped and set himself up!
Sam sadly left us at age 16. He lives with us through his children including - our 2000 BOB winner at Sydney Royal Easter Show - Ch Clarevale Basil Brush and his Grandson, Ch Gaitway Qikdrw McGraw "Darcy".
Thank you Sam. You and Bert left us so close together, which, as you were such great mates, was really very fitting...
