Past Accomplishments

CH Sarius Candy Man Can , AKA Sammy, was my very first Champion, whelped 5/8/94. He was also the first puppy I ever whelped which made him special from Day 1. He was a little head strong and quite a challenge to train. But I managed to win a few dog shows myself with him in spite of my poor handling ability. Once he matured and went out with professional handler, Joan Huber, he finished his AKC Championship in just four weekends. He went Best Puppy in Sweepstakes at the Mount Vernon Miniature Schnauzer Club Specialty Show in 1995. He went Best of breed over Specials and had several Group Placements. His most prestigious win was going Winner's dog at the American Miniature Schnauzer Club Specialty Show at the  Montgomery County Terrier Specialty in 1996. There was an entry of over 165 schnauzers that day.  Then he went on with Joan to Bermuda, where it only takes 10 points for a BKC Championship. In just four days he came home with 20 points, the equivalent of two BKC Championships. He went not only Best of Breed each and every day, but also first in the Terrier Group and then went on to win a special award they have there for the best Terrier in Show. I decided at that point I missed my boy and wanted to bring him home to retire and just be a dog. He sired my latest Champion, Sarius Frosted Midnite Rosebud, AKA Rosie, at the age of eleven years. He is thirteen years old now and still in great shape for his age. Even my Veterinarian is impressed with his health and vitality.

I bought Hope, AKC Champion Blythewood Hope O' Sarius , from Joan Huber to breed to my Sammy because he was getting older and I had not kept any of his puppies. She was shown a little as a puppy but then took a leave of absence to be bred to Sammy as he was not getting any younger. At the age of 11, Sammy sired Hope's first litter of 5, two of which became Champions, and one more should have been but she was sold to a pet home because I just could not keep them all. After raising her puppies, Hope went on to reach her Championship on June 4, 2006. She was whelped on April 21, 2004.  Hope's seond litter produced two more Champion females and I am keeping three show potential puppies of her third litter whelped 8/22/07.

This is AKC Champion Sarius Frosted Midnite Rosebud.  She is Sammy & Hope's Daughter and was whelped July 25,2005. Unfortunately, there are not many win shots of Rosie to show you because she finished her Championship so quickly. Once she caught on to what she was supposed to do she won almost every show she entered. She finished her AKC Championship under Judge Peter Green at the Philadelphia Dog Show in Harrisburg, PA on November 19, 2006.
