We are deeply grateful to Jim & Mimi for showcasing this beautiful bitch at their own personal and financial expense and for allowing her to achieve so many wonderful awards.  Not unlike her dam, Monroe, she too is making dreams come true.
Thank you, Pam, for always being a professional and for never allowing Simmer to look anything less than perfectly groomed, conditioned, shown and more importantly.......happy.

Picot Takes Her First Best of Winners Award

We are very happy and equally proud to announce that

                                                    "Shomberg's Perfect Timing"

                            (CH.Shomberg's Sparks Will Fly SH x CH.Shomberg's Olympic Gold )

                                                                  was awarded 

                  Winners Bitch and Best of Winners at the Monticello Kennel Club Show

                                                      Friday..........October 9, 2009

                                                Breeder- Judge :  Mrs. Betsy Yates

She was named "Picot" ( pronounced Peeko ) after an exquisite timepiece known for its' timeless
beauty, its' quality and its' perfect movement.  It's a fitting name because she certainly embodies it all.
This youngster is already causing heads to turn and we're quite certain that it will only continue as she moves toward her championship title and the many awards yet to come her way.

Sincere "Congratulations" to John and Anne Marie Tierney of NY who own and love this stylish, little bitch and allow her the opportunities to show and represent Shomberg in such a lovely way.
We are very proud and very appreciative for all of their efforts and their personal sacrifices in having Picot out there for the whole world to see and admire.

Thank you and Congratulations !!

Monroe's Daughter "Simmer" Wins Best In Show !!!

                                                             Friday...........October 9, 2009

                                Today in New Jersey at the Monticello Kennel Club Show
                                                          Multiple BISS & Group Winning
                                     CH.Shomberg's One Hot Ticket Deppe Haus
                              (GSPCA Top Producing Show Sire CH.Wyndbourne Endeavour JH NRD ROMX 
                              GSPCA Top Producing Show Dam NSC/BIS/BISS CH.Shomberg's Some Like It Hot ROM )

                                                            " Simmer"
                                                     All- Breed Best In Show
                            under respected Best In Show Judge, Mr.Sam Houston McDonald
                              Breed & Sporting Group..... Breeder-Judge......Mrs. Betsy Yates

How very fitting that this show was dedicated to the memory of our dear friend in the Shorthair breed,
Mr.Jim Burns.  Jim presented Monroe with the GSPCA National Specialty Best of Breed win in 2004.
He was a  respected AKC Judge, a nationally recognized breeder of champion Shorthairs and Vizslas and he is very much missed by all of us who knew him and enjoyed so many great years in his friendship.  So this was a very special day as Jim's wife, June, was ringside to see Simmer continue her dam's winning ways on this very special day.

We are so happy that Patty and Jim & Mimi were there to see it happen as well among other wonderful friends and supporters. As always, Simmer was presented magnificently by her handler, Pamela Bober, who always does such a lovely job with her. Pam, we so appreciate your efforts. What a team !!

Sincere "Congratulations " to Jim and Mimi and thank you for allowing Simmer to represent
"Shomberg" in such an outstanding way. We are very honored indeed and acknowledge the effort and financial sacrifice you make to have Simmer in this level of competition.

Thank you, Patty. You are always ringside and always supporting Simmer just as you do all of the Monroe "kids".  It never goes un-noticed or without deep appreciation for all that you have done and continue to do in Monroe's memory. She loved you so and she always will. We know why.

A special thank you and "Congratulations" as well to Sue Harrison of Wyndbourne, the owner of "Shain", who is Simmer's sire. We know she's every bit as proud as we are and that she was cheering in Florida and now lifting a toast.  One helluva combination, kiddo !!

Our unwaivering love and dedication to the "dog who made dreams come true", our beautiful Roe Roe.
Precious girl, loved beyond words and missed so deeply every day .........it is all because of you.

                                                                      Sharon & Steve
    A true testament to the quality of this lovely bitch is the fact that she has achieved her awards and continued her climb to the top of the GSPCA winning statistics without a single page of paid advertising or financial supporters endorsing her.  That pretty much says it all.  You go girl !!!
