CH. DUSHANBE'S I'LL TAKE MANHATTAN CGN(sired by GCH BIS CH Vanderbilt's Man O' War CD CGN TT RE). Macy is now owned by her co-breeders, Judi and Blair Elford of Ontario.
While still here with us, Macy won an impressive Best Puppy In Show on the day that her father won Group First at Cobequid Dog Club. She finished quickly to rave reviews from judges and fellow exhibitors. The two puppies that we kept from her litter sired by our Tennyson  did very well during the 2008 Samoyed Association of Canada National Specialty weekend. "Asia" (Ch Dushanbe's I'll Take Saigon)won Best In Sweepstakes plus BWs at all three all-breed shows that weekend and then finished her title with a Group Fourth and BPIG at her next show. "Mac" (Dushanbe's I'll Take New York) won Best Puppy and Reserve Winners Dog at the specialty and was BOS to his sister in the Sweeps. On his next outing, he won Best Puppy In Group.
We look forward to her producing even more exciting kids at Vanderbilt.
