Ch Whisperwind's On A Carousel, Peter

From the time he was in the whelping box, I noticed that Peter was a one-in-a-million dog. He had so much sparkle that it was evident even at that young age he had a bright future ahead of him. When I would reach down to pick up a puppy in the litter, Peter always ended up in my hands.

I had no intentions of keeping a male at the time and was determined that his sister, Esprit, was the only one that I would keep. Fortunately, a series of lucky events happened and he never ended up being sold.

Ch Whisperwind's On A Carousel, Peter From the beginning, Peter won in the ring almost every time with his spectacular charisma. Once he settled down from being a rambunctious puppy, he finished his Championship quickly. He was ringsided to his Championship by several different handlers and won with anyone who took the lead, including me.

I knew there was something very special about Peter but I didn't know exactly what it was. I never had intentions of Specialing a dog but, since he was so much fun to show, I decided to continue showing Peter just to see how he did in the Specials ring. Upon finishing his Championship, I sent him out to show with Dennis McCoy for a long weekend, thinking he'd be back home the following week.

On that weekend, his first weekend as a special, Peter won back-to-back Best In Shows and proceeded to win Best In Show the following weekend. That was the beginning of his illustrious career, winning Best In Show 101 times including Best In Show in 1991 at the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Peter was handled throughout his Specials career by the famous Dennis McCoy and owned by Dr. and Mrs. Fred Hartsock.

Peter went on to become a Top Producer and a beloved best friend and companion to me until his death at age 15. He had so much sparkle and charisma that anyone who met him knew he was a once in a lifetime dog. Peter was the love of my life and it was my privilege to have shared my life with him.
