2007 Purina All Age Brittany of the Year Award


NFC/DC/AFC Shady's Tia Maria

Oil Painting by Artist Ross Young (www.rossyoung.com)

By Robert A. Rankin, MD

  This year's winner of the Purina Award was NFC/DC/AFC Shady's Tia Maria, owned by Clem & Marilynne Little and handled by Jim Berneathy. In what was a hotly contested race this year. Tia bested a strong field bolstered by wins in the National Open, Midwest Championship, the Chukar Classic, the Western All Age Championship and other placements.
  Over 120 people were on hand as Roy Pelton and I made the presentation at the Blue Mountain Clubhouse the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Ross Young could not attend this year but his painting of last year's winner Lane's End We-Be Clean made it and was presented to the Robins.
  Then Tia took front and center with the Littles and Jim and Janet Berneathy. Tia had already had a good hour in the Amateur with Marilynne but cleaned up nicely for the presentation and pictures. All expressed their heartfelt thanks! to Purina for their continued support.
  Well, "next year" has already started but here's a list of last years dogs.
