Additional Info

The Phantom was one of our first Yondo "pupsicles", along with his litter sisters, Pepsi and Pumpkin. Yondo's semen had been frozen some 16 years by the time this litter hit the ground. It was, as you might imagine, a magic moment for us when they arrived after such a wait. We wanted to be sure we had the right bitch before we used one of those vials. "Delta" was a strong, proven daughter of The Iceman and we felt the combination would be successful. (see more)

This was the result. Phantom was a big pup at birth, over 2 pounds, and remained a big pup.

And here he is taking a first in the Sweeps at his first National.

He went on from there to go Best Of Winners at the SSSBC in California. He matured out at over 200 pounds, the same weight as his sire. His sister, Pepsi went on to earn a place in the SBCA Hall of Fame as a producer of champions. Not too long after this period, Brian had to retire from the ring due to hip and heart problems. We always enjoyed showing our own dogs and Toni showed our last dogs.
