Trooper's Wins on 2 years of Montgomery (WTCA) weekends!
Trooper was shown as a special (champion) on the Montgomery County KC weekends in 2014 & 2015 by handler Ernesto Lara. Both years he won top awards in the breed. He won multiple Best Opposite Sex (BOS) and Grand Champion Select Awards (SD).
At the Welsh Terrier Club of America National Specialty, under breeder judge, Mr. RC Williams, Trooper was awarded Best Opposite Sex! This is a prestigious show, always with a large number of entries in the breed. We are honored to have received this outstanding award.
On the same weekend, Trooper’s daughter, Maria, was awarded Winners Bitch, for a 5-point major (the highest point total available for non-champions), and his grandson, Mickey, was Best Opposite Sex in the National Specialty puppy sweeps.

Trooper wins in Italy!
In 2015, Trooper traveled to Milan, Italy, to attend the World Dog Show (WDS). This annual event moves around to a different FCI country each year (US, Canada and England are not FCI countries). The WDS is well attended every year by all of the breeds, and it is not unusual for their to be 20,000, or more dogs presented there, representing most countries of the world. Welsh Terriers are plentiful, and very competitive, in the European Show Rings, so this event is always well attended by our breed. The event includes 2 shows, one which is a called a club show (specialty for the group, for us, terriers) as well as the actual World Dog Show. Winning anything on this weekend is considered a very high honor.
At the Club Show on the WDS weekend, Trooper won the Open Class and went on to win BEST OF BREED! Trooper was presented in the Open Class because he was not a champion in an FCI country (essentially Europe).
Sonya Cornick and I (Trooper was co-owned by the both of us) were very proud of this win. We are appreciative of his American Handler, Mr. Ernesto Lara, for presenting him in beautiful condition for us. We thank Judge, Mr. Dan Ericsson, for this award. Mr. Ericsson is very well known in the world of show dogs. He is from Sweden, and is well known for his “Raglan” champions of many decades, and is considered a terrier specialist.
Shown above in this photo winning BOS is Inga Hyldahl from Denmark. A few years later, Inga and her husband traveled to Canada a couple of times and imported 2 Darwyn Welsh of her own – Walter and Elsa. Both have done very well in Denmark.
A few photos of Trooper in Canada
Trooper was shown very few times in Canada. In that time he finished his championship, won multiple Group 1st wins, a Best in Show and was Canada’s #1 Welsh Terrier for 2016!
