Dewey was the puppy who caught everyone's eye and my heart and stayed here @ Fair Isle. At his first weekend of shows, the back-to-back GSCA MidAtlantic specialties in September 2018 he was Reserve Winners Dog at both specialties. The wins were awarded by respected sporting authorities Sam Houston McDonald and Michael Faulkner.
The following weekend Dewey traveled to Connecticut to compete @ the TarTan AM & PM specialties. At the AM specialty he was BISweeps under Gordon Setter breeder Suzanne Montgomery. At the PM specialty he was BOSSweeps under Gordon Setter breeder Ellen Jones and Winners Dog under judge Gloria Kerr.
After a few months break from the show ring, Dewey competed in the Winter Garden Specialties in Rye, NY where he was Winners Dog / Best of Winners under Irish Setter breeder/judge Nena Dee on Friday and the was BOS in Puppy Sweeps to his sister Martha under Gordon Setter breeder Denise Clauser.
Another 7 months pass and Dewey is back in the ring for our local specialties. Winners Dog at the Saturday specialty under Canadian judge David Swartwood.
The National was up next for our boy and as the youngest in the Open Dog class he placed 3rd behind the Winners and Reserve Winners with some lovely comments from judge Richard Powell, noting that he only lacked maturity.
We would wait until Feb for Dewey to once again return to the ring in his quest for his Champion title. At the first day of the Winter Garden Specialties in Rye Brook, NY; Dewey would be awarded Best of Winners (and Winners Dog) for a 4 point major at the TarTan GSC Specialty under judge Douglas McFarlane to complete his title. We would move him up to BOB competition on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, judge Marissa Clark gave Dewey one of only two Awards of Merit at the GSCA specialty! We are so proud of our young boy.
Now he's back home and will be getting all his health clearances sorted out while he matures before he sees the show ring again.
