Effie - #5 TMT in the US!


As of April 30th, 2010, Effie is the #5 Toy Manchester in the US, primarily owner-handled!  We couldn't be more proud of Effie and what she's done so far in 2010 including an 8 show run winning Best of Variety with competition and winning a Best of Variety (owner-handled) the 2nd day of the AMTC District 3 Specialty weekend in Nashville.

Additionally, Amanda Kelly -- our good friend, occassional debate partner, and all around good egg-- flew in from Nova Scotia for a visit  on Easter weekend.  Just for fun, she showed Effie, and they  walked in and won a very competitive Toy Group at the St. Petersburg Dog Fanciers Association shows!  Needless to say, we were all thrilled! 

Effie recently began showing with noted professional handler, Harry Bennett, and they are turning into quite the team.  Harry has been showing Toy Manchesters for decades, and he has handled some of the top winning dogs in breed hisotry. Harry has great hands with the breed, and we look forward to Effie reaching her full putential under his expert guidance.  Look for Effie and Harry in Florida and the Southeast.
