"If you can do it, it ain't bragging."

Karen Bruneau & Sassy

Karen Bruneau & Sassy

We believed . . .

Sassy (Euzkalzale Sassafras and Lace) made her show ring debut at the Great Pyrenees Club of America National Specialty in Andover, Massachusetts, May 2-5, 2001.  Benefiting from the expert grooming and handling of Karen Bruneau, Sassy was undefeated in the 6-to-9 Puppy Bitch class, in three shows under three different judges.

American judge Dr. Robert M. Brown placed Sassy 1st in the Futurity.  Belgian judge Henri Remy awarded her 1st in the Sweepstakes.  And British judge Keith Savage selected Sassy for first place in the 6-to-9 Puppy Bitch Regular Class.  The ultimate high came during Keith Savage's remarks at the banquet on Saturday evening.  While he praised that  there were so many outstanding dogs in the show, "...the six-to-nine puppy bitch blew me away!...."

And we have to thank....

Terry Denney-Combs and Karen and Leo Melanson for the vision and wisdom to do the breeding.

Karen Bruneau for grooming and exhibiting Sassy at her absolute best.  You two really bonded. And I learned so much.

Chris and Terrie Strom for your friendship and support.

Peggy Watson and John Steaveson for letting Vinnie slurp me.  What an honor! And for teaching me about dwarf pyrs.

All three judges for seeing the magic.
