What is there to say about a dog that wins the Sporting Group at his very first show?
By 7 weeks of age, I knew he was special.
He was breeder/owner handled throughout his career.

Some of Hoggy's career highlights include:
Best In Show Winner
Best of Breed 1994 Canadian National Specialty
Multi Specialty Show Winner
10 Group 1sts, 30 Group Placements
127 GRCC Show Dog Hall of Fame Points
12 U .S. points, Multiple Breed wins, 1 Major win.
#4 Golden in Canada 1991
#1 Breeder/Owner Handled Golden in Canada 1991
GRCC Top Show Golden in Canada 1991, 1992
Multiple Stud Dog Class Wins, Multiple Veterans Class Wins

Here's a few more photos of this once-in-a-lifetime dog.

We have a secret, you and I
That no-one else shall know.
For who but I can see you lie
Each night in the fireglo.

And who but I can reach my hand
Before we go to bed
And feel the living warmth of you
And touch your silken head.

And only I walk woodland paths
And see you ahead of me.
Your form racing with the wind
So young again and free.

And only I can see you swim
In every brook I pass.
And when I call, no-one but I
Can see the bending grass.
