Eiffel Goes to Westminster
Here at Fit As Fido, we’ve been fans of champion Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier Eiffel since we first saw him stealing the show at a photo shoot for GQ magazine. Eiffel is now off to the pinnacle of dog events — Westminster.
Proud owner Michele shares Eiffel’s story:
Eiffel’s registered name is GCH Bryr Rose Symbol of Paris. I met his breeder, Jeanne Ferris, at a dog show in Hartford, CT in 2008. We became good friends and when she did a breeding that resulted in five girls and one boy, I wanted a show dog. She told me that the chances of the single boy being a show potential was not great. I met him when he was four days old and instantly fell in love. Luckily for me, he did turn out to be a show potential and I took him home at eight weeks of age.
When Eiffel was six months old, I showed him at his first show and he won his first point. He and I won both his Majors and a Group 4 when he was eight months old. He was Reserve Winner’s Dog at Montgomery 2010 and finished his Championship at just over a year old. From there, he received an AOM at the specialties at Montgomery 2011 and also at Bucks 2012. He became a Grand Champion early in 2012.
Now, we are headed to Westminster. Jeanne Ferris, Eiffel’s breeder, will be showing Eiffel on Tuesday, Feb. 12th at 10:45 a.m. Wish us luck!!
