What can you say about a dog named "Downer"? Especially since he was everything but.... He got his name from Libby Pforr (moral of the story is never let an 8 year old name a dog) but over the years proved that he was no "doggy downer". The show ring was the place Downer wanted to be, unless he was off chasing tennis balls. He quickly earned his bench title and it was very clear that he loved showing. He became the top owner-handled Gordon during the years he was shown, placing in groups and winning specialties.
