The most famous and oldest show in the US is the Westminster in New York. Every exhibitor in the USA is dreaming of exhibiting at least once at “The Garden”. In 1979, I had the pleasure of visiting this exhibition as a spectator. It was a very special experience. Robert Kelley and his daughter Nicole bought their “Snowy” from me two and a half years ago (2015). They have made a big commitment to “Never let you go aus dem Elbe-Urstromtal“, ie getting a groomer and a professional handler, to make her the USA Champion. On Sunday in “The Garden” at the Westminster came the crowning moment of the many efforts and commitment: “Snowy” became Best bitch, a very big dream for me as a breeder. I am more than grateful to Robert and Nicole Kelley for representing my kennel in the USA so wonderfully.
