Handler Sue Cannimore's comments:
"....Everything clicked with Maggie today - she walked when I said 'let's go' and went
Best of Winner's. It was still just 1 point, but it's not bad to leave the first shows
with 6 month old pups with both having their first points.

Sue, we agree!  Thanks for the Alexandria show....
looking forward to Pine Bluff, Arkansas!

(a.k.a., "MAJOR TOM")

"Splendor's This is Ground Control" (a.k.a., Major Tom) has been purchased for the show ring by Fred & Mary Lou B. He will be shown in AKC conformation shows! Good luck, everyone! Make us proud, Major!!

BEAUTIFUL Major made his show ring debut at the Michigan Winter Dog Classic on January 17-20, 2013. He scored an impressive 2nd place in his variety group! Congratulations Major! Keep making us proud! Love & kisses!

"Hi Kelly, Major's first big outing was Sunday at the Oakland County Kennel Club Dog Show. He did very well with the crowds and everyone wanting to pet him. I don't know how many people held him, and he just kept getting passed from one person to another. He was such a good boy and handled the commotion very well. Many people commented about his wonderful, calm temperament and wanted to know if we would sell him. People kept commenting about how striking he was. He certainly was adored by all. We had such fun with your beautiful boy and feel so honored to have him.

He also did very well in the ring taking second in the hound group. He got just a little distracted when he saw me so next time I will have to hide. The judge really liked him and it was very close between him and the 15'' beagle that was first. Fred was thrilled to be his handler and can't wait for the next show.

Major sends his love and a big kiss"
-- Mary Lou B., January 23, 2012

Major is a BEAUTIFUL black & cream male from Summer & Dusty

"OOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHH Kelly how can we thank you. He is absolutely gorgeous and even way more than we expected. It was a leap of faith for us to buy a puppy sight-un-seen from you, but you certainly should be very proud of Major and his breeding. He has such a wonderful temperament and is such a little lover. He will be absolutely beautiful in the show ring. There is going to be a puppy show in January at the Novi Expo Center . He will wow the judges. He is so smart and has the cutest personality. I could go on all day.

He slept all night in a crate next to our bed and we never heard a sound from him.

Anyway, he is wonderful, and we thank you so much. We will keep you posted and send pictures. Best Regards,"
-- Fred & Mary Lou B., November 10, 2012

Additional Major Photos & Comments:

"Just thought you would like to know that Major passed his physical this afternoon and was officially declared a beautiful, healthy puppy. As was expected, he was the darling of the vet's office. Everyone made a big fuss over him. He is settling in nicely, eating and sleeping well. Had a long nap this afternoon in Fred arms.

He discovered the bay window today and was lying in the sun with Sasha and Molly. He figured out pretty fast the ramp to go up but is still a little hesitant about coming down -kind of does a belly slide.

Thank you again for such a beautiful little boy. He has definitely wiggled his way into our hearts.

P.S. We are amazed at how well he stacks for a 3 month old puppy."
-- Mary Lou B., November 10, 2012

"The first picture is of Major Tom and his new sister, Sasha, taking a sun bath in the bay window. He loves it there because he can see everything going on out side, hang out with the big dogs and take a sun bath all at once. He is still a little skittish with the ramp but he lets us know when he wants down, and we practice with him each time so he will catch on soon. The next one is of him learning to walk on a lead with Daddy. He starts conformation classes Tuesday evening so walking on a lead is a big step for such a little guy.

We are having so much fun with him Kelly. Such a precious little boy!!!!! He gave me a kiss today."
-- Mary Lou B., November 11, 2012
