Our Indy needs little introduction due to his successful show career and we are indeed very proud to have bred one of the handful of lovely beardies that have done extremely well in the "Big Ring" at championship shows. Of course these achievements require a dog to have special attributes and abilities that enable them to compete against the very best of other breeds for high honours and we believe Indy's balanced conformation, great head and expresson, good breed type and sound temperament have been responsible for his outstanding results in the showring.
It has been an honour and a pleasure to show Indy in the Group and Best In Show rings over the past 5 years and Indy has given us some wonderful memories that we will always treasure. Indy is a true beardie gentleman with impeccable manners and these virtues made Indy very popular with our fellow exhibitors in the group rings and this has made us doubly proud of our special boy.
A "Big Thank You" to all the judges who have appreciated Indy over the years. Indy is now semi retired from the show ring (much to his displeasure) as we have Reg, Ella, Billy, Rose and Jacob waiting their turn in the showring, however as Indy still enjoys fabulous health and condition we have promised Indy that we will take him to a few shows after his 7th birthday so he can compete again as a veteran.
We are also very proud and pleased with Indy's wonderful children who seem to be following in their dads winning footsteps. Indy has prouduced for us 1 Canadian Champion, 2 American Champions, 2 English Champions, 3 CC winners 3 RCC winners and 4 Junior Warrant winners and 2 Best In Show winners. We very much look forward to watching these youngsters grow and develop into mature adults and would like to thank their owners for loving & taking such good care of Indy's of offspring.
A few memories.......
Did we do well dad?

Derek Smith's Critique....
"Surprised to find a dog of this quality in this class, All Beardie, loved his head and eye, super expression, lovely neck and balanced outline, excels on the move being so sound in every way, in full coat with immaculate presentation and fabulous texture, looked the part, CC."
After winning his class.
Indy was only entered for two shows in the puppy classes but never the less started his show career in style by winning Best Puppy Dog at his first show under Breed Specialist Les Griffiths and followed this with Best Puppy In Breed under Breed Specialist Cathie Whittaker at his second show.
