CH. DUSHANBE'S I'LL TAKE MANHATTAN CGN (sired by GCH BIS Ch. Vanderbilt's Man O'War,CD CGN RE TT and out of Ch. Vanderbilt Paint Me Pretentious, CGN ROMC), 'MACY' has been an eye catcher from an early age with her amazing reach and drive and showy personality. With Heero (BISS Can.Am.Ch.Vanderbilt's War Paint) as her double grandfather, it is no wonder that the quality runs deep with four of her five siblings in show homes.

MACY was named after the famous store in Manhattan which we saw for the first time while taking a side trip on our way to the SCA National in Mars, Pennsylvania when our youngest son was only two years old. We stopped breeding and showing around that time and this litter was a long anticipated 'new beginning' for us at Dushanbe Samoyeds.

Macy attended her first match as a barely six months-old baby and won Group First and Best Puppy In Match ! At her first 'real' show she went best of winners for two points. And then she decided that she liked this show biz game and geared things up a notch by winning BEST PUPPY IN SHOW under South African judge, Doreen Powell, at Cobequid Dog Club in March, 2006.She finished at South Shore Kennel Club shows at eleven months of age.

Her sister, Madison, finshed her championship at ten months of age with a Best Puppy in Group and then picked up three majors in the USA (one at a Specialty show). Macy's two brothers are also holding up their end. Menley finished his title quickly with several best of breeds and then came out as a special and picked up back-to-back Group Thirds while back home for a visit. Painter has a definite liking for specialty show weekends. At six months of age he won Reserve Winners dog at the Central Florida Samoyed Specialty to a five point major and repeated this the next day. He finished his American Championship Sept'06 during the Samoyed Specialty of Greater Atlanta weekend. He came out as a special at two years of age and picked up a Group First, Group Second and Group Third but this was only a warm-up for the big event, the 2007 SCA National Specialty where he won an Award Of Merit. Four champions for this litter and another pointed out of a litter of six.

Macy is currently attending obedience classes and is quickly becoming a star there as well. Not a great surprise with such clever parents as Manny and Tenny !

Macy won First in Brood Bitch at the  2008 SAC National Specialty with her puppies sired by our Tennyson (CH. DUSHANBE'S MAKE MINE COOL MINT).  "ASIA" was Best Puppy in Sweepstakes and Best of Winners at the three all-breed shows that weekend and  "MAC" was Best Puppy in Specialty, Reserve Winners Dog and BOS in Sweeps. Asia finished her championship on her next outing  with a  Fourth in Group and Best Puppy In Group. Brother, Mac, won BB the following day and Best Puppy In Group. Not a bad start for Macy's six month old babies ! Mac and Asia can be seen on their own web pages accessed through The Girls and The Boys sites.
