|"MENLEY", Champion Dushanbe's Manhattan Skyline (sired by GCHX BIS Ch.Vanderbilt's Man 'O War, C.D. CGN RAE TT TDI Am RN x Ch.Vanderbilt Paint Me Pretentious, CGN PCD TDI Can Am RN ROMC), has been a charmer from the cradle. With his superb structure and outgoing, showy personality we expect him to captivate judges wherever he goes.
He began captivating mere mortals at only eight weeks of age when his new co-owners Bonnie Tam and Patrick Wong-Tung came to Nova Scotia to visit before taking him back home. He had his picture taken by so many tourists at Peggy's Cove and the Halifax Citadel that he became a minor celebrity and made people forget that they were there to look at scenery and historic buildings.
At show handling and obedience training classes in Ontario he wowed instructors with his terrific structure and movement spiced up with a great attitude.
He earned his first points as a junior puppy with two Best of Breeds at the Ontario Breeders Ass'n shows in February 2006 and then came out again in April at Norfolk shows in Ontario to win another Best of Breed and three straight Best of Winners to finish his championship at nine months of age! Completely owner-handled and trained by Bonnie, this was quite the adventure for her with her first dog. Great job !
Many thanks to all the fellow exhibitors, spectators and judges who recognised the quality of this young puppy and went out of their way to relay their comments. Bonnie's next challenge will be to 'polish' him up for the Specials ring.
While waiting for his coat to grow back in Menley dabbled at a few shows and brought home Best Opposite in Specialty Sweeps at the Ontario Samoyed Club specialty in June and repeated this in July ! He then came back home to Nova Scotia for a visit and scooped up two GROUP PLACEMENTS !
To say we are very proud of this Manny/Tenny combination is an understatement. We are so excited about his future potential in the specials ring and as a stud dog that we can hardly wait for him to grow up.
Many thanks to Bonnie for all her diligence and hard work training Menley to reach his full potential.
Eyes CERF normal, hips too young.
