Sam is a son of Champion Waldmeister Henry J.W. and our German girl, Ora von den Kleinen Banditen at Waldmeister.  He is an absolute joy, always busy and inquisitive.  Below are some pictures of him out on the moor exploring for the first time.  Nothing bothered him - mud, water, thorns, cover ....... he was game for everything.   At Scottish Kennel Club in May 2010, at 7 months old, Sam was awarded the Reserve Challenge Certificate and Best Puppy in Breed.  At the City of Birmingham, Sam was awarded the Reserve CC under Valerie Foss. Well done Sam!!! SInce then, Sam has gained a number of Reserve CC's, his latest being the Hound Association Championship Show in August 2013.

Sam was BEST IN SHOW at Stockport Canine Society December 2010 and was First in Junior Dog at Crufts 2011! At Leeds Championship Show in July 2012, Sam won Open Dog and was awarded the Reserve CC from Norwegian Breed Specialist Espen Engh; his kennel mate Denzel (W Johnson JW) won Limit and was awarded the CC. At Crufts 2013, Sam was 2nd in Limit Dog, only beaten by the CC winner. And at Crufts 2014 he did even better, won the Open Dog class, was awarded the CC and Best of Breed.

Here is Sam taking a dip in the pond to cool off on a hot August morning

He is not afraid of cover, water, snow or thorns - he goes through everything!
