short show career he won numerous groups culminating in Best In Show at
Western Suburbs Kennel Club Show in 1978 with an entry of over 2000

Luna set the
standard of the breed for me.

purchased from John Eddy and was a lovely bitch and a joy to show. She
taught me a lot and we won Puppy in Show at the 1977 Championship Show.
She was full of life and I was devastated when I lost her to cancer at
the age of six.

beautiful bitch and an absolute joy to have around. She started life as
the most beautiful baby but when she went into the uglies we thought she
would never come out of them. She didnít start to bloom until she was 14
months old after we had almost given up hope. She won many large bitch
challenges, in groups and an exhibit in group. A wonderful mother to her
pups and very much a part of everything that was going on.

Zaminka not long after she had this litter so we had to keep something
from her. Sailor was my first home bred Champion. A dog slow to mature,
as many Samoyeds are, I learned to be patient and that most Samoyeds,
especially the males are not at their best until about five years of
age. He went on to win a Best in Show all Breeds and the one we are most
proud of Best in Show at the Samoyed Club Championship Show in 1987.
Sailor spent his final years with John Eddy where he lived the life of

imposing dog with a strong but loving temperament Rosco did well in the
ring with group and in group wins to his credit.
He did much
to stamp beautiful heads into my lines. Very much a manís man he didnít
play nice with other males.

bitch Zia just did not like the show ring. She wanted to be at home to
rule the other dogs.

a good mother and consistent in what she threw in her puppies.
Invaluable to the kennels. She also gave me

sold as a baby puppy but his owners had trouble with him. He had won
numerous baby in group and minor in group and I think puppy, as well as
a few challenges. They had him debarked twice but he still managed to
find voice so at eighteen months of age they brought him back from
Bendigo to see me. I told them to leave him here.
Very full on
and starving for attention he settled in here.
He was shown
a few times and was perfectly well behaved for a then very young Kate.
He was no trouble to show but I could not walk away from him so we left
him home most of the time. He did manage Best in Group.
He turned out
to be a very useful stud dog and his daughters did well put back to
Rosco as did Roscoís Daughters back to him. He has left us with the
beautiful Tarsiebelle Mon Kahlua who is the lynchpin of our breeding
many other dogs who have played their part in Mezen Kennels and I am
thankful to them all.
