WTCH CH Windsong's Raisin Cain CD whelped 1976

CH Copper Canyon's Caligari CD x WTCH Twin Oaks Windsong, Owned by Rick Dill, Texas  

We did all show dogs back in those days!  And yes, that is Kathy Warren showing a dog she bred and trained who was later sold to and finished by Rick Dill.  And how about the show photo below of Rick and Cain in the breed ring with Linda Wilson and Bonzo (Fieldmaster's Three Ring Circus)? 

Working dogs with CH's did compete against "famous" show dogs!  Have you noticed all the CH's on these working dogs and their parents?  They weren't just winning against each other either.  Those days had serious show kennels too including the likes of Fieldmaster, Tri-Ivory, Coppertone, and Sand Canyon. 

 

WTCH Windsong's Hurrah Cain owned and shown by Chris Timmons - he went Winners Dog that day in Beaumont, TX. back in the early 80's.

So what is ASCA Stock Dog Judge, Chris Timmons, doing showing a dog in conformation?  We all used to do this!  Some of these guys were even pretty good at it.  Chris's traveling buddy, Rick Dill, showed his WTCH CH Windsong's Raisin Cain CD to both his WTCH and his CH and were showing the same time as I showed Steeler.  This was in the early eighties.  Steve was showing and trialing his CH Brushwood Buckeye Charm CD ATDsd OTDc STDh in the same era.  That was the time when we "did it all with the same dogs"- before progress I suppose you could say.  I didn't go to Brownfield but sent Steeler with my friend Joyce Reaves who conned Chris into this event, not telling him Steeler was terrified of thunder - which was going on at the time!  But it wasn't the first or only time Chris did this.  He put some conformation points on his own WTCH Windsong's Hurrah Cain CD too!

CH Copper Canyon's Caligari CD "Jimmie" whelped 1973

George's Red Rustler x Quaglino's Miss Pooh

Owned by Lois George, San Luis Obispo, CA

This photo is Jimmie as most people saw him - winning in the breed ring.  I remember watching him go Winners Dog at the Nationals in Kansas City and just being amazed at the effortless way he covered ground.  Lois leased Miss Pooh for several litters until one time when she called her owner, Jimmie Caligari, and was told that he couldn't spare her from the ranch any more so he had her spayed!  Jimmie's littermate sister, CH Hoyt's Wildwood Flower, produced several really nice litters for me bred to Tim Tim - including CH Slash V Wild Timber.  Jimmie is also the sire of WTCH CH Windsong's Raisin Cain CD from a mating to WTCH Twin Oaks Windsong.

CH Copper Canyon's Caligari CD "Jimmie" doing a job not many people saw him do.  Jimmie was a rough heeler and a tough cattle dog and those who saw him work realized the contribution he would make to working bloodlines.  Rough as he could be on cattle, my son Scott worked him in a rainstorm in Kansas City when Lois's daughter, Erin, backed out of the duck trial.  Scott was about ten or twelve and had no problem controlling this easy going dog.
