Ottawa area Mr. and Mrs. Logie were frequently seen at shows with the
offspring of their dogs and made many champions from them.
Northern Ontario the Paquette's kennel "Wenrick" was becoming well known and is still producing champions and Best in
Show winners. Also in northern Ontario are Patti & Mark Paquette
of "Sou Yen" reg’d. Sharon Cornett was breeding under the
name "Shonaping" flag and producing consistent group
winners. Diane Moncion of the "Paramount" kennels has
produced several Best in Show winners and several champions. Last, but
by no means least, Ron and Marnie Oystrick have produced several Best
in Show winners and of course this is the home of "Samalee’s
Reflections of Baron".
Southern Ontario has also acquitted itself well and numbers
among its breeders Gerry Ikola who’s kennel name "Nanking"
has been well known in the U.S. and Canada. Marg Brown’s
"Shente" kennel is also very well recognized as was
mentioned this is the home of the famous Brandy Alexander. An earlier
breeder in that area was Mrs. Phyllis Houston who did a lot to help
the breed under the kennel name "Felicia".
West Joyce Harris of the well known
"Nancarrow" name was producing her fair share of champions
as was Mary Ellen Baker whose "Karmicki" prefix is still
prospering in the show ring.
In British Columbia Mrs. Janet Stewart,
"Whinbrae", continues to do her fair share of winning and is
quite an enthusiast in the breed.
In conclusion, I would like to say that I feel we have done
well by this unique and wonderful breed of ours both in the show ring
and in the whelping box and we can hold our heads up with pride
knowing our dogs are as good as any.
