Shows To Remember !!

A Few Shows to Remember !!

Steve and I are thrilled to recognize an outstanding cluster of shows in New Jersey this past weekend and the awards garnered by the lovely puppies and dogs that represent "Shomberg" so admirably.

The trip to Big Apple Sporting Dog Specialty, Tuxedo Park Kennel Club and the Eastern German Shorthaired Pointer Club Specialty held in conjunction with Somerset Hills Kennel Club always allows us special time to share with great friends and this year was truly a trip to remember. Camping and sharing dinners and laughs with great friends make every award so much more special and we so much appreciate the support and the friendships of so many people in our breed as well as those friends who come from other breeds too.

We so enjoyed watching a puppy boy, Shomberg's Timeless Masterpiece..."Chance", take his first steps into the show ring and walk out with exceptional awards despite the fact that he hadn't a clue as to what he was being asked to do. But ... he did it and his proud owners, Van & Connie Smith, now have some beautiful ribbons and special awards to prove it. Patty Crowley once again displayed her exceptional ability to take a totally inexperienced puppy into the show ring where he became a "show dog" much to everyone's excitement and she did it for 3 straight days. We are so proud of "Chance" and he will undoubtedly be a contender in the weeks and months ahead. Having an 8 month old puppy recognized so quickly for his quality is just remarkable and we were so proud of him and appreciative that Van and Connie are giving him this exposure in the breed.

His sister, Shomberg's Perfect Timing, ventured back into the show ring after a brief introduction at the Ohio shows at Grand River in July. Handled by her owner, John Tierney, this lovely young puppy will be a showstopper in her own right in times to come. "Picot" was awarded placements in every class entered and she will no doubt bring exciting wins in the shows ahead. Anne Marie cheered from the gallery as John presented this lovely youngster in the ring and we were just as proud as they were to see her do well. Having taken a Puppy Sporting Group placement in recent weeks at her first shows, we know this youngster will be bringing home many more awards in the future too.

Best of Breed competition at the Big Apple Sporting Dog Specialty found 3 Shomberg champions pulled to the front of the line for consideration in Best of Breed. Astounding and exciting beyond words for all of us standing ringside !! What better compliment for any breeder than to have 3 champion littermates singled out for that recognition of their quality and breed type.

A totally un-expected win in Best of Breed for Shomberg 'N DeBars One For The Road ... aka, "Stoli" ... taking her first breed award as a new champion at her first show since acquiring her show championship in Kentucky 2 weeks ago. Owners Jack & Sue Johnson were almost speechless when given the news and we were terribly happy to make the call and share it with them as they remained home in VA and missed seeing their girl take this win. Stoli continued her winning ways by taking an Award Of Merit in Best of Breed competition at the Eastern GSP Specialty show.
This lovely young bitch always looks beautiful and she is a clear example of what form and function is all about when combined in a total package. That's Stoli ;-)

CH.Shomberg's Sparks Will Fly SH, our handsome "Sparks",( father of Chance and Picot) was handled beautifully as always by Patty and was awarded Best of Opposite Sex to Best of Breed at Big Apple Sporting Dog Specialty. "Sparks" has been doing field work toward his additional titles in that discipline and so these shows once again allowed people to see what a handsome and exceptional example of the breed has has become as he has matured. We were proud beyond words of his performance in the ring and continue to admire this special dog for all that he is and now for what he is producing in conformation as well as the field. No doubt there will be more opportunities for our "Sparks" to show the GSP community that he can compete in the ring, win in the field and produce offspring that can do the same.

Thank you, Patty, for presenting him so beautifully for us as you always did his mother and now do for him as well. As grandson Ashton would say "Thanks Ms.Patty. Spawky looked just great !! "

CH.Shomberg's One Hot Ticket Deppe Haus....aka, "Simmer".......continues to show everyone that she is a force in our breed as she continues her rapid rise to the top of the breed stats by winning Best of Breed and a Sporting Group 3 at Tuxedo Park on Friday and then moving on to win Best of Breed for the second straight year at the Eastern German Shorthaired Pointer Club Specialty on Saturday.

Simmer follows in the footsteps of her illustrious dam, NSC & Multiple Best In Show CH.Shomberg's Some Like It Hot...."Monroe" who won this same specialty show four consecutive years running; an achievement that has never been matched by any other Shorthair in our breed and very likely never will. Jim Deppen & Mimi Winkler were thrilled with this honor just as we were as once again the Eastern GSP Club's William Patterson Memorial Trophy was awarded to a Shomberg dog.

Finishing off the weekend at the Westchester Kennel Club Show in Tarrytown, NY "Simmer" again won Best of Breed and made the final cut in Sporting Group competition.

"Simmer's" handler, Pamela Bober, did a magnificent job of presenting her as always and we are sincerely appreciative of her genuine effort to always present Simmer at the top of her game. Your skills in always doing such an outstanding job are obvious to everyone standing ringside..

To the very highly skilled handlers who have always shown and continue to exhibit these beautiful dogs for their owners we extend our sincere appreciation. Your efforts are so much appreciated.

To the owners of these dogs who go to great effort and personal sacrifice to have them showcased to represent Shomberg and our breeding program in such an outstanding manner, we say, "Thank you. We couldn't do it without you. You are appreciated."
