Group 1 judge: Eilene Pimlott
After Gena's Group 1 win, she entered the Best in Show ring. But, a big named, nationally known
Newfoundland was already slated to win Best in Show that day. Oh well. . . . . . . a Group 1 win is
a very big win in itself, and not too many dogs have claim to such a win.

Gena's prize from the Pontiac Kennel Club for winning the Herding Group was a director's chair.
However ! Gena did receive a bouquet of flowers with 2 helium balloons from an admirer. Gena
also received a stuffed oversized bed cushion with 'Ch. Group 1' embroidered on it from the same
admirer, her breeder.

to Slick and Ellie and earned a
Select at the 95 Rass
In 1996, Gena was shown quite extensively in the U.S. and in Canada. She became the Number 1
winning Briard in Canada and Number 17 in the U.S. for that year, 1996. There were numerous
Best of Breed and Group wins. Gena was in so many shows, that when a judge would approach
her head, she would automatically spread her lips to have her teeth checked. We had to watch
this action very closely because some judges might see this as a threat, a dog with her lips
curled, showing her teeth. And believe me, there are some judges that would disqualify her for
attempting to bite, but luckily this never happened.
Windsor Ontario Canada show. Mother Gena takes Best of Breed and daughter Ellie takes
Winners Bitch in March of 1996.
Gena takes Best of Breed at the Trillium Dog Fanciers show in Toronto in 1996.
03.16.97. . Gena whelped a 14 puppy litter. Bred to Ch. Ferguson de Knollwood, Fozzie's black
brother.

Out of the 14 puppies, 9 were black and 5 were tawny, 7 were females and 7 were males.
5 black females, 2 tawny females. . 4 black males, 3 tawny males

The 14 puppies were: Jean d'Arc, Bailey, North, Meggie, Bradley, Tashe, Barty, Haty, Luke,
Arielle, Noel, Nicole, Nadia and Zar. The black male Zar was purchased by television and
movie star Raven Simone, and is living in Georgia.

After this litter in 1997, Gena's show career slowed down. There was nothing more to obtain
after being the Number 1 Briard in Canada and the Number 17 Briard in the United States.
Although she was in top form, we semi retired Gena in order to complete the show careers of
Gena's daughter Ellie, Ellie's daughter Darla and Marquise, our French import.

Then. In 2001, at the age of 10 years old, Gena has two big wins as a Veteran in 2 shows in
Canada. The first win as Best Veteran in Sweeps at the Canadian Briard Club National
Specialty, judged by June Shew.
The second big win was at the Hochalaga Kennel Club show. Gena took Best Veteran in Breed
followed by Best Veteran in Group for Groupe 7, and then went on to capture Best Veteran in
Show .
