signey1

signey2

“Signey” – BISS AM/CAN CH Boradors Significant Brother AM/CAN CD
Signey was our first champion. After earning a major under Mary Weist at six months and three days, there was no looking back. He won four specialties, including the National from the veteran’s class, earned our first group 1, got a JAM at Westminster and was a lot of fun to show. He is behind many of our present dogs.


art

“Art” – BISS AM/CAN CH Visions State of the Art CD
Art was also one of our first few show dogs and gave us both a memorable day by winning a Canadian specialty under breeder judge Peter Hart.


peppar

“Peppar” – AM/CAN CH Shannon’s Absolut Peppar
Peppar was never a very enthusiastic show dog but has been a joy to live with and is behind many of the dogs in our kennel today.

“Beau” – BISS AM/CAN CH Shannon Valley’s Beauregard
Beau has undoubtedly given us many of the pinnacles of our dog career. He won at all breed shows frequently, but also won four specialties. He had multiple group placements in both the U.S. and Canada including several Group 1’s. But by far, the best moment was when he won Best of Breed at Westminster in 2002. He has sired over 20 champions.
