Petey


Beginnings

We started out with our first pet JRT many years ago, and though it was the incorrect thing to do, we purchased him for our father who had early Alzheimer's. That placement did not work and "Shorty" came to live with us. Shorty was a pud but we recorded with JRTCA.

We searched for several years looking for a better quality female. We ultimately located and purchased our Ch./Intl. Ch. Devonwood's Flying Foxy, ROMX. Foxy was JRTCA bred but we did not take her into JRTCA. Having been involved with AKC in retrievers years prior, and not personally liking the situation of the JRTCA not allowing club members to join another registry, we left JRTCA and took Foxy into the AKC and have never looked back.

Foxy earned her Intl/World Ch. Title in 1999 and took a Group 2. In AKC, Foxy showed in the Miscellaneous group as we awaited being accepted into the AKC Terrier Group. It was at this time that our Grandson Thomas took an interest in showing and Junior Handling. Foxy, with Thomas handling her, took the first AKC point in JRT's in No. California at the first AKC show that JRT's were accepted into the Terrier group. Thomas and Foxy went on to earn Thomas' three Open Novice wins.

In No. California, we also participated in the JRTNNC Open Trials which provided Foxy and her descendants many fulfilling awards, a number of Best families, Best Open Bitch, Best Bred By Exhibitor Bitch and Dog and many Go-To-Ground and Racing awards. The most significant of Foxy and Thomas' wins was when Eddie Chapman was over here to judge and placed Thomas with Foxy as Best Jr. Handler.

Foxy has taken us so far in this breed and we know we will never have another dog like her. Foxy's love is hunting in whatever venue she can be in. Foxy and Peggy have hunted in Virginia and Maryland with Liz McKinney, Lynn Grimsley, and Larry Morrison, and it was an experience of a lifetime.
