GSCA National Specialty 2001 -Puppy Sweepstakes

Allentown, Pennsylvania
Hosted by the Brandywine Gordon Setter Club

Brandywine decided to do their activities one at a time, and on one day at a time.  Therefore on Monday, the main event was Puppy Sweepstakes that was judged by Mrs. Suzanne Montgomery of Bromwich Gordon Setters.  She was very efficient and organized as she went over the puppies.  

Friends of ours, Marte Wetzel and Dawn Mozgawa,  just missed, by one day, being able to show Brady and Drake.  Peggy and Greg’s Blizzard was in puppy sweeps 9-12 months old.  Blizzard did a nice job, showing his breeders, Peter and Chris Sandiford, Hernwood (UK) that he could behave.  Peggy also showed Sally Frones, Tri-Sett Lady Leah of Sevenoaks (Emma).  At the end of the competition, Suzanne selected Kilernan Sundance Kid as Best in Sweepstakes and Phyllis Perelli's and Vanessa Cappello's (Black Anvil-CT) Black Anvil Q.T. Pie (Pumpkin) as Best of Opposite Sex in Puppy Sweepstakes.  Pumpkin is the daughter of Ch. Glen Oak All that Jazz, JH (our Fire’s sister) who won WB/BOW at the 1996 GSCA National Specialty.  Pumpkin was sired by Ch. McQ Wilderness Sharpshooter.
