years ago Robyn Tansey in Canada had requested a show dog from me, one that
would succeed not only in the conformation ring but also in the obedience
and agility ring. I sent Robyn AKC & Can Ch Chadwick Laugh a Minute and in
the end Minute was bred and gave birth to a very special young lady by the
name of Rowan. Robyn could not keep Rowan at that time so she came to me in
Connecticut. Not the bravest of little dogs, she needed more one on one
attention and thus she left for a Southern Lady’s Life in Beaufort, SC with
Pam Taub. I thought she would be easy for Pam to show in that all you had to
do was stand there and Rowan, so soundly constructed, would stand four
square and look alert. Well, it turned out not to be the case. At each show
Pam’s many “coaches” taught her how to show Rowan and how to groom her long,
straight, silky coat which is not always an easy task. I was determined that
Pam would show and finish this girl’s CKCSC Championship – and she did. All
it took were two good judges who recognized her great structure and
movement, who knew no-one and simply had to judge the dogs on the day. They
forgave Pam’s obvious handling errors – they forgave Rowan’s antics in the
ring in order to put up a sound, beautiful and typical Cavalier. Thank you
to judges Ernie Paterson (UK), Marilyn Madigan (Australia) and Paula
Campanozzi (USA) who awarded Rowan with her majors and Best Puppy in Show. A
truly international array of judges who loved this little pipsqueak!
