Judge Jerry Wallin gave Yondo this specialty Best of Breed the day after he won the 1987 National. In those days it was not uncommon for the SBCA to hold trailer shows. Nowadays it is more the practice to hold pre-shows and leave the choosing of the National BOB to the very end of the week. Many judges and fanciers who had only seen photos of Yondo were surprised by how big a dog he was when there in the flesh. Not only was he as tall as his contemporaries but he went an honest 200 pounds. He had exceptional bone for a smooth dog and nice proportions. Back home, his favorite companion was a small black and white barn cat by the name of Kimtail. She had the big fellow wrapped around her little paw.
