“Déjà vu” was the perfect term for the Terrier Group winner at the Eukanuba National Championship. The Sealyham Terrier, CH Efbe’s Merci Pour Le Povire, from the French speaking city of Montreal, Quebec, Canada is the litter brother of last year’s BIS winner, CH Efbe’s Hidalgo At Goodspice. “Merci”, the number one dog in Canada, is another great Sealie from Frances Bergeron, who made the unlikely switch from Great Danes to Sealyham Terrier 30 years ago. If two BIS Sealies from one litter isn’t impressive enough, consider this, CH Efbe’s Seabiscuit, another litter brother, is also a multiple BIS winner.
As a former Sealie owner, I am eternally thankful to Frances for helping to keep this rare breed in the public eye. Remember to tell your elected officials to protect the rigths of the endangered species we keep in our homes.
