Ch. Lupini Pretty Boy Floyd
Ch. Lupini Pretty Boy Floyd (alias "Mykie") was in my very first litter.
The puppies' first show was an outdoor show, in south central IL in
mid-summer. Boiling hot, a tornado moving through nearby, I had four
dogs entered but only showed three because ran out of grooming time.
Pouring rain, whipping winds and two vans, huddled together with an old
tarp stretched between them, so the Kees and Sammies could be groomed.
The showing clothes, forgotten at home, I entered the puppy dog class
in a pair of sandals and a short playsuit. Due to the weather, my
seven-month-old male (Mykie) had not had time to play and unwind. He
wiggled lots for the judge, trying to lick his face. Relieved that the
inspection was over, and he could move, he trotted/bounced, up the
triangle. At the end, as I slowed down to turn him, without missing a step,
he leaped up-up-up, into my face and gave me a kiss. Spinning in mid air,
he landed four square, facing the judge, and trotted back to him, just full
of himself - with me, astounded, at the other end of the lead. No, he
did not take the points, but we all had a good laugh.
CH Lupini Pretty Boy Floyd, (Mykie) won best in Sweepstakes at the Sahuaro
Specialty (with the 1981 National) and finished
with three majors, and Best of Breed over specials. CH Lupini Pretty Boy Floyd (Mykie) is the
sire, grandsire and g-grandsire of many Champions,
including regional and National Specialty Best of
Breed and Best of Opposite sex winners, a BIFuturity
winner, numerous group winners, placers, ROM & ROMX
dogs and a HOF granddaughter.
