AN AKC CHAMPION (UNDEFEATED) IN ONLY TWO SHOW WEEKENDS!

CHAMPION Birinci's Yahsi (Handsome) winning Best of Winners in Atlanta Georgia Although Handsome was raised at Lucky Hit Ranch to be a working lifestock guardian, the first time Kim Marcus saw Handsome's picture she recognized his tremendous potential as a show dog. Two months after Kim removed Handsome from his guardian duties at the ranch, and in only two show weekends, Handsome (shown by Kim) earned his AKC CHAMPIONSHIP.


Below are pictures and information regarding HANDSOME'S AMAZING SHOW PERFORMANCE!

Excerpt from "Critique of the Regular Classes"
for the 2004 ASDCA National Specialty
in Atlanta, Georgia, September 16, 2004.
By the 2004 National Specialty Judge,
Richard G. (Rick) Beauchamp

"The Open Dog, BIRINCI'S YAHSI, impressed me from the moment he entered the ring. Calm, dignified, observant--a picture of strength without lumber.

He maintained the correct silhouette both standing and in motion. Slightly longer than tall, with what I call the "lazy-s" topline (a very gentle curve downward behind the withers then arching slightly up over the loin area).

The correct and matching front and rear angles allowed him to move easily along. Coming and going confirmed what his side gait led me to anticipate--total soundness.

Good head properties--power without coarseness with beautifully made and placed ears and a well shaped eye of good color."



Link to the complete article, 2004 NATIONAL SPECIALTY SHOW in Atlanta, Georgia, Critique of the Regular Classes, by Mr. Beauchamp.


CHAMPION Birinci's Yahsi (Handsome) winning his first BEST OF BREED and obtaining two breed points
On October 2, 2004, Handsome went BEST OF BREED, securing two breed points as a Champion Special. The most amazing thing is that his handler, Kim Marcus, had to be in the another ring to show her Havanese pup, CHAMPION Sunberry That's Carnivale (Rio), who went Best of Breed also. Kim asked Samantha Gillenwater, a very petite twelve year old junior handler, to take Handsome ringside until Kim could arrive to show Handsome. However, because Kim was winning with Rio and couldn't leave her ring, Samantha had to take Handsome in the ring, giving Handsome his first BEST OF BREED win handled by a petite twelve year old! (Samantha went on to be the best junior handler in the show.) Handsome also went BEST OF BREED the next day. And Handsome's not yet two!
