Gorby At the top of our "Champions" list is Bit O' Gold's Little Russian, "Gorby," the Best In Show Pug with a cowlick!  Gorby was a showman.   He loved to show.  He lived to show.

Handled by Connie Conger, Gorby's show record included 5 All-Breed Best-In-Shows, 6 Specialty Best of Breeds including a P.D.C.A. Regional Specialty, 71 Group Ones, 42 Group Twos, 29 Group Threes, 28 Group Fours, and 276 Best of Breeds (All-Breed shows).   In addition, Gorby was selected as Best of Opposite Sex and received three Award of Merits at the P.D.C.A. National Specialty.  He was in the top 10 of the P.D.C.A. ratings for five years (#7 - '90/91; #2 - '91/92; #3 - '92; #4 - '93; '94).  He also received P.D.C.A. Medallion Awards for most Best In Shows ('92, '93), Group Ones ('91, '92, '93), Best of Breeds ('91, '92, '93), and Honorable Mention for Most Best in Specialty Shows ('92).

He was rated in the Canine Chronicle Breed, All-Breed, and Toy Group standings for four years (#3 Breed, #3 All Breed - '91; #2 Breed, #1 All Breed, #8 Toy - '92; #3 Breed, #2 All Breed, #15 Toy - '93; #7 Breed, #4 All Breed, thru October '94).

During his career, Gorby defined the standard for Pug movement and was used extensively in the AKC Pug Video.  His qualities were recognized by over 160 different judges and he received many accolades from Judges and dog fanciers across the country.

Gorby will be remembered as a happy Pug by all who knew him.  He was a special Pug with a big heart and a wonderful personality.   One that comes along just once in a lifetime.  He was a breeder's dream; a handler's delight.


We do not subscribe to the new AKC Grand Champion program.  If a dog can achieve a Grand Championship title without ever winning a Best of Breed ribbon, then what exactly is the dog a Grand Champion of?  While this program has succeeded in increasing dog show entries, thereby increasing the income to those involved in the shows (AKC, superintendents, show giving clubs, handlers), the title as defined will remain relatively meaningless.

We are, however, looking forward to participating in the newer Owner/Handler program, assuming that it is offered at all dog shows and administered as advertised.
