*GRAND CHAMPION EXCELLENT*        BIS CH. VANDERBILT'S MAN O'WAR,CD CGN RAE TT TDI Am RN  (sired by BISS Can.Am.Ch.Vanderbilt's Warpaint x Can.Am.Ch.Vanderbilt's Flowery Prose), AKC pointed. "MANNY" is pictured winning Second In Group under judge Doreen Powell of South Africa at Cobequid Dog Club, Nova Scotia in March 2006.


Manny was the Top Winning Samoyed Puppy in Canada in 2003, Award of Merit and Sweepstakes BOS at the Samoyed Association of Canada National Specialty in 2004, won BEST IN SHOW, earned his C.D. in obedience and sired his first litter at Dushanbe Samoyeds in 2005. So far in 2006, he has seen four kids earn their championship (two American and another with a four point major) and another pointed out of a litter of six and had a wonderful weekend at Cobequid shows by winning a First and Second in Group and watching his daughter, Macy, win Best Puppy In Show.
Manny had three new pointed kids in 2009.   "Newman", from the repeat breeding to Tenny, went Best of Winners for two points on his six month birthday at Halifax Kennel Club shows Sept 7, 2009 and then placed third in the 6-9 puppy class at the SCA Nat'l in Indianapolis. Newman finished his championship with a three point Best of Winners at Moncton NB Nov 2010 with a total of three Best of Breed and five Best of Winners.

Manny has not been sitting on his laurels but was  working hard towards his Rally Advanced Excellent title which he completed at Dartmouth Kennel Club trials May 16, 2010. He is now more than half way through completing this title for the second time.

**Manny was the first Samoyed in Canada to earn rally novice, rally advanced, rally excellent and rally advanced excellent titles as well as the first to earn his Grand Championship. You could say we're just a bit proud of our accomplished boy !

He wishes to congratulate his number one son, "PAINTER", BISS Am Ch Vanderbilt's I'll Paint Manhattan, CGC BN RN MX MXJ NAP NJP XF, on winning his second Samoyed specialty Best of Breed ! He is a Group Winner with multiple placements and Award of Merit at the SCA National specialty in 2007. Then in 2012, he came out at the SCA National in Gettysburg to take Best Opposite Sex in Working Sweeps and AWARD OF MERIT! Also in 2012 he completed his BN title. Not bad for a seven year old ! Painter is working on completing his Am GCH as well as working in agility and training for obedience with owner Allison Baker of New Orleans.

Manny decided to have a fling at shows again at the Samoyed Assoc of Canada National Specialty in May, 2012. He won BOS in Veteran Sweepstakes and then won his Veteran Male class and went on to take AWARD OF MERIT ! He was also the highest scoring Samoyed in rally that day with a 98 in Advanced and 89 in Excellent. All at 9 1/2 years of age. His arthritis acted up on him the following month but he managed to snag a Third in Group regardless of the wet weather. He earned the first leg on his AKC rally advanced title at the SCA 2012 Nat'l in Pennsylvania. Now he can lounge on the couch and enjoy his much deserved retirement.

"TENNYSON" is pictured at 18 months showing off his very FONZIE-like face. (Hips OVC and eyes CERF certified). He is AKC pointed.

He is very proud of daughter, ASIA's, three Best of Winners at Tantramar KC shows for six points plus Best in Sweeps at the 2008 SAC National Specialty on her first weekend out at six months of age. Her next trip out (South Shore KC)resulted in a Best of Breed, Fourth in Group and Best Puppy In Group for a four point win to finish her championship! Her brother, "MAC", on his fist ring appearance was Best Puppy In Specialty and Reserve Winners Dog at the 2008 SAC National Specialty and the following outing won Best of Breed and Best Puppy in Group.

Not to be outdone by his kids, Tennyson finished in style at Cape Breton Kennel Club shows Aug 23 & 24/08 with back-to-back Best of Breeds and two Group Fourths for 2 x 4 points ! And has won many group placements since then.

He is thrilled to see six of his kids pointed in the past year out of three different litters in Canada and the USA. Many thanks to their breeders and owners.

Daughter, "Gypsy", RBIS UKC CH DUSHANBE SAFYR DOWN THE ROAD, who is out of our Dory, has already wowed the judges when five months old with two Best Puppy In Shows and her 'Baby' championship at the International Shows in Pennsylvania. And, as an adult in Sept 2011, tried her hand at a weekend of United Kennel Club shows and swept to her championship with three Group First and a Reserve Best in Show!   Way to go Gypsy and Doreen Nelson (Safyr Samoyeds).

Tennyson finished his FCI championship in October 2010 with another Group Placement!

He is proud of his litter out of AM/CAN/UKC BIS/RBIS INT'L CH SNOWSHOE RUN FOR THE ROSES and the two kids "HARLEY" and "RAIN" who were pointed at their first shows in the USA at six months. Our own littermate, "DANCER", picked up her first points and two Best Puppy in Group also at six months of age. She finished her title in September 2011 with a Best of Breed over specials, Group Fourth and Best Puppy in Group. Dancer's brother, HARLEY, picked up his first major in October 2011 and sister, RAIN, added a two point win later that month. RAIN took Best of Winners for a big specialty four point major in Ohio Dec 15, 2012 under judge Robert Slay and then finished her American Championship Jan 20, 2013 with a three point major under Paula Hartinger at the Oakland County Kennel Club in Illinois, USA! She earned her Grand Championship title later the same year. Congratulations Rain and owner/handler 'Sam' Lowel.

Tennyson decided to try his hand at performance events in September, 2011.  On the Friday night he earned his CGN title and then followed it up with three qualifying rally novice 'legs' over the weekend to complete his RN degree with a First in Class ! In May 2012, Tennyson earned the first two legs towards his Pre-Novice obedience title and in October he finished it at Truro. He also picked up the first leg on his AKC Rally Novice with a score of 96 at the SCA National Specialty in Pennsylvania, Sept, 2012.

Daughter, Kyah, who joined us in Feb had a whirl wind time at the CFC shows, finishing her CFC championship with a Group First and Group Third. Talk about a showing machine ! She is very aptly named... CFC CH DUSHANBE'S WINTERMIST SHOWBOAT, CGN RN PCD TT (who is out of Ch Vanderbilt's Rockin' The Boat). We are looking forward to having a lot of fun with Kyah in the show and rally rings in the future.

Congratulations to Tennyson's grandson, "BEAR", SNOWSTAR'S AUTUMN EQUINOX, on his Best of Breed for three points and Group Second for another two points (a total of FIVE) March 23, 2014 at Cobequid Dog Club.
