It's hard to express how very SPECIAL Striker is. One of only 3 puppies born to our beautiful CAN AM CH /SCA National 2014 RWB winning Vanderbilt's Cherry Brandy, "Brandy", from a mating in Denmark to the 2015 European Dog Show RBIS winning Cabaka's Happy Go Lucky, "Lucky" - Striker came out of the gate winning and hasn't looked back. Winning Best Baby Puppy in Shows, an all breed Best In Show, Multi Best Puppy in Shows, a Samoyed Specialty show Best of Breed winner, 2 Working Group Specialty wins and onto become both a Canadian and American Grand Champion and #2 Samoyed in Canada by 18 months of age. Whew! We hardly came up for air! We followed that up with a warm up year in 2018 with Striker winning a number of Specialties, Working shows and 4 more Best in Shows. We decided to hit the gas in 2019 and he ended the year #2 All Breeds in Canada and a total of 58 Best In Show and 29 Reserve Best In Show awards to become the Top Winning Samoyed of all time in Canada (by # of BIS AND by total points in one year), as well as beating the previous global BIS record (54) for a Samoyed.
All of the showing is great fun when you have a dog with a character like Striker has - comical, playful, engaging, and looking for mischief! Striker has also managed to find time to make some babies. BEAUTIFUL babies. Watch for them to make their presence felt in the future!
