AKC Group Placer
sire to the Breed's first Best in Show dog
Owner's comments: Cyrano is a legend - He will go into the record books as the sire of our first Best in Show dog from among his eight champion offspring.
His life cut short by a tragic accident, he himself had two group placings before maturity. His potential as a sire was lost to the breed, one only can guess at his greatness. He was elegant, sound with a beautiful neck and headpiece, good body and back. Among his achievements in his short life and career was helping his owner to the five wins in Junior Handling needed to enter Westminister show, another first for our breed and junior handlers. He did not live to take her there, but his daughter had to substitute for him. He was officially owned by Gerlinde Hockla and Edeltraud Laurin, but his heart and soul belonged to Janina. 1973 ABTC Gene VolI p79
