GCH CH Bruno Della Vecchia Roma

We continue with a another trio of Working Dogs.  First the  breed that was made famous by Harry Potter, the Neapolitan Mastiff, will be represented tonight by GCH CH Bruno Della Vecchia Roma.  Bruno was bred by Thierry Paratore & Jenny Paratore and owned by Janice E Wolf DVM.

GCH CH Drakyi Gold Standard

The imposing Tibetan Mastiff you will see tonight is GCH CH Drakyi Gold Standard.  Midas, the 2009 Working Group Four winner, was bred and is owned by Richard Eichhorn and co-owners Michael Brantley & Linda Brantley.
GCH CH Meadow View Officer N A Gentleman

The Komondor is a breed everyone recognizes, though few people have actually seen one in the flesh.  Tonight spectators will see the spectacular GCH CH Meadow View Officer N A Gentleman, bred and owned by Sherry & Michael Harman & Janet Cupolo.

Congratulations to all the winners!

    Midas the Tibetan Mastiff had an abscessed tooth that ruptured just before entering the working group ring at Westminster. Because of the draining and mouth pain, Michael decided to pull Midas so there wouldn't be any bad reactions to the judge trying to open his mouth to see his bite. Hard decision but Midas was in pain and his reactions in the ring would have been seen by millions of people. His breed-winning performance can be see on the Westminster Dog Show website.
