UPDATE 2: I just heard from Marsha York, Hubbell’s breeder. She was so thankful that I was acknowledging her special boy. She and her husband John were there at the Garden cheering Rotten on.
Hubbell is surely a special dog, already having been awarded from the GRCA as an OS (Outstanding Sire) and SDHF (Show Dog Hall of Fame) entrant.
UPDATE 1: They have the video up that shows all the Goldens being judged by the famous Jeffrey Pepper. Just click here.
They don’t have the video clip yet of the Golden judging from Westminster, but I looked and they picked the dog for Best of Breed. He is Ch Happy Hour Highmark Toasty.
I do not know the dog but I do know that the sire of this winning dog is the same sire with respect to the photos I took of those adorable 3 pups you see in my masthead above.
That sire is Hubbell (shown above), or more formally, Ch. MY SkyWatcher OS SDHF. He is quite handsome, and has fathered many winning dogs. He is a Golden from breeder Marsha York, of MY Golden Retrievers.
