Sam was possibly the last living son of GMHR Am/Mex/Intl CH Cook's Midnight Bandit MH TT who was still available at stud. He is 78- 80# in good working condition and measures 23.5" at the withers. His most recent litters born both resulted in 11 puppies. Not bad for a 10+ yr old!!!
Sam was co-owned (and resided) with Gail Gegg in W. WA. He completed his CD (3 for 3 under 3 different handlers even!), his Rally Advanced (also 3 for 3!) title, and most recently his Rally Excellent (also 3 for 3!) titles. He also was awarded a LRC, Inc. Conformation Certicate (CC) with nice scores, showing he conformed to the AKC / LRC breed standard.
Sam's sister (Sonya) resided with me and besides being IntCH, CDX, JH and RA titled, whelped 3 very nice litters for me. Rion, another littermate, is one the highest titled WindyCanyon dog to date, having numerous field, obedience, agility and tracking titles (see Other Titleholders page).
Sam had been hunted over, and sired a handful of litters. One of his pups (Ginny) earned her JH at 7 mos and her first SH pass at 8 mos, finishing her SH in the minimum (4) tests. Ginny is now a MH (earned first Q at 2.5 yrs old) and most recently completed her TDX (Tracking Dog Excellent title), and is also obedience, rally and agility titled.
We lost Sam after a good long life at 14 yrs & 3 months
