BISS GCh Ch Dun Roman’s Element of Earth LMLD, AOM – “Elie” is shown here at 7.5 years old going Best of Opposite Sex over competitive specials from the Veteran class under Breeder Judge Robert Edison. Elie was also awarded Best Veteran in Sweepstakes and a Veteran Group 4 at the Tri Valley Working Dog Club Show. Exquisitely handled by Betty Jo Costantinidis. Elie & Betty are our dream team and a true pleasure to watch in the ring.
At Dun Roman we celebrate all our young champions, but the biggest cause for celebration is a competitive Veteran. As breeders we strongly believe that the Veteran class is where the true quality for our breed can be seen. You expect young dogs to be in top condition and show shape, but the true test of a quality bred Dane is the test of time… We wish all breeders and show enthusiast would exhibit in the veteran class, it is the only way one can get a complete and accurate picture of someone’s line/pedigree. When we see an outstanding Veteran, that is important information we consider when making decisions on the future direction of our line, because health and longevity are the most important part of a good breeding program.
