This dignified fellow is Benbaron's Ustinov Of Eddie. He was owned by Janice Holmes of the famous Carmen kennels, the oldest registered kennel in the United States. In addition to winning a couple of nice majors at the specialties in the northeast, Ustinov was a fine SBCA Hall of Fame stud dog. One of his daughters, Vegas, is owned by Pat Postma of the Kennebank kennels and she was bred to Benbaron's Xulu Of Yondo. Most recently, his frozen semen was implanted in Taboo's daughter, Lasquite's X-quisite, owned by the Napoleo kennels. His most-recent champion offspring is the lovely Ch Carmen It's Predestined To Be, who finished quickly, winning six of seven shows in a recent New England circuit.

 

Abe was one of the first Yondo sons ever born and he did his dad proud. He was owned by Pat and Joost Postma of the Kennebank Kennels of Nova Scotia. This boy did it all for them. He was the first St Bernard on the Canadian Superdogs Team; he won at the shows internationally; and he became an SBCA Hall of Fame stud.

 

As you can tell from the handler's snappy clothes and Harry Palmer glasses this was the early 70s! Here Brian is showing the teenage Lord Munster at the New England SBC specialty.

Outlaw was a gorgeous puppy. We sent him to the Kings Row kennel of Skee and Shirley Tsagris in California. They kept him hidden until around two and then brought him out to the Northern California specialty cluster. Bingo! He finished in one week. While out West, he also sired a nice litter or two, and one of his daughters, Anne Bonney, was top bitch in the Nation. No slouch in the show ring himself, Outlaw was shown by Joe Wolf of Ohio and became a hot group winner and top ten Saint.

 Years ago Brian took a bitch down to breed to Sky Meadows Renegade in Southern California. While there, he fell in love with a smooth male puppy that Jack Landgraf was keeping for himself. Brian came home with The Iceman and he turned out to be an outstanding specimen. He excelled in all aspects - show dog, stud, weight puller, and breed ambassador.

When Tikki Smith bred her girl Nelda to our Iceman, Toni picked Eddie as our stud pick puppy. What a good choice it turned out to be! Not only was Eddie a specialty winner and a wonderful hospital therapy dog, but he produced a whole bunch of impressive champions.
