Simon on the move


UPDATE: 10/2011
***Simon now has 9 points with a 5pt major towards his AKC championship! He just completed his Canadian CH with Graeme Burdon in Canada. He did so entered in 5 shows back to back taking BOB at each show taking his CH with a Group 4!! We are proud of you! ***

Simon came to me unexpectedly at the age of 8 weeks. He was headed to Australia and I offered to keep him with me until he needed to leave the country.  Knowing he was not to stay, I “steeled” myself to not fall in love with Simon.  Then one day, two months into his stay, I got a call from his breeder, and long time friend, Pat Herschman of Camelot (NJ), that there had been a partial change in plans  for ownership  in Australia and wanted to know if I would like to co-own Simon with her. How could I refuse? After all, this boy was double line bred on my foundation dam,  Kissa. 🙂  So, now I could let my heart become his.  We attended only one match ( he was barely 8 mos) while he was with me, but what an eye opener it was. No, he did not win, more importantly he demonstrated what he was made of.  Now mind you,  I had not really done a lot of work with him. In fact, I was doing everything I could not to become overly frustrated in walking to the ring, as he was all over the place. Boy, did he ever give me a pleasant surprise, along with  lots of goosebumps.  He walked into the ring as if he owned it. He stacked as if he knew what he was doing, and finally, on the go rounds, he FLOATED like an old pro!!!!  My mouth literally dropped open. I couldn’t wait to get him home so that I could contact both Pat and Anthea ( Wysiwyg) Adamopoulas to let them know the jewel we had!!

 Simon is now co-owned with Pat, along with Anthea, who had him in Oz on a lease agreement. Anthea returned him to me and Pat September of 2008 personally. I drove 15 hours straight, with the assistance of my dear friend Suzi Houtz, through to RI to the National Specialty to collect him. Thank you to both Pat and Anthea for this dream come true. 🙂 Thank you Anthea for all you did for Simon and for the great care you took of him.
Simon proved his worth not only in the ring by obtaining his Australian Championship (100 pts needed) in less than 7 months (12 shows) at the tender age of 21 months with 5 BOBs, but continued his winning ways by garnishing well over 400 points in very limited showing, towards his Australian Grand Championship (1000 pts needed).  While in Australia he sired babies that have multiple Best Puppy in Shows and higher placements in their classes, as well as Australian CH titles.  In 2007 two of his young daughters were ranked in the Top Twenty Puppies in Australia!! 🙂  We are very excited  both with his show career in  OZ as well as the fact that he has proved himself to be a very prepotent sire.
