are excited to report that FIVE of the top 20 Rottweilers in the
Kennel Club standings were Esmond Rottweilers in 2017.
Janes & Sully, who was also the
ONLY Rottweiler to win Best in Show (twice) at a CKC event last
year. Angie and Sully also achieved two all breed High in Trial wins!!!
Boucher & Deacon
and Diane Pilcher & Nox
Phillips with both Tryst and Pan
making the top 20 breed rankings last year!!!
year has passed and although we have wound down most of our own show
schedule, our owners continue to impress with their many
accomplishments. We also have a broader family of dogs than
ever before, with co-breedings from the past now creating lines of
their own. We'll list the Esmond and co-owned accomplishements
here, but are just as proud of the many who are carrying our lines
forward through their own breeding programs.
were three breedings in 2017 which kept us busy for most of the year:
~ The much anticipated Yngo/Rumor breeding produced a whopping ten
puppies via frozen semen! This litter make quite a few of us
very happy and also brought one new owner to our Esmond family.
We'd like to welcome John and Cathy Randall of Oklahoma. Thank
you to Tammy Ausloos for making Rumor available for this breeding.
~ Next came the Tryst/Kellen litter, co-bred with Moe Mullen and
Kathy Bach. There were eight pups in this litter, who will also
carry the Esmond prefix. And we must admit that it was one of
the best litters that we've ever had the pleasure of evaluating.
Congratulations to all new owners and welcome to Tim and Alicia
Everton from Iowa, Sue and Rich Raux from New York and Joan Kossaras
~ And, right at the end of the year, Nox and Sola blessed us with our
final litter of the year. These three pups have kept us busy
right up until the end of 2017, going home between Christmas and New
Years Day. These three puppies all stayed in the family and we
are eager to see what they go on to accomplish.
always, my favorite thing to do at year end is to put together our
yearly list of accomplishments. Congratulations to each and
every dog and owner on this list. We are so proud of every one
