Anacan Invincible
Vinny at Boston & District Champ Show January 2020.

I had chosen a name, Anacan Invincible, for the next male show puppy I would keep at least a year before Vinny arrived on the scene. Almost as soon as he was born I called out to Richard "Vinny is here!". He was just such a striking puppy, out of the first litter sired for us by our 'McGee', I just knew I had to keep him. And as he grew, he was, and is, such a good-natured boy.

At just over 6 months of age, 'Vinny' went to his first show - The Nordic open show - where he behaved so well I was amazed and I think the judge was as well as he kept commenting on how nice 'Vinny' behaved and how well he moved. Despite being handicapped by me as a handler with my bad back and movement, 'Vinny' continued showing well for me, so well that at the BUBA champ show the 7th December 2019 'Vinny' won a 4th place in the Best in Show Puppy Group. This was the first time that a Canaan Dog placed in the group at a championship show (they have done well at open shows prior to this) so we were over the moon.

Crufts can be quite an intimidating show for even seasoned show dogs due to the sheer size of the crowds and noise level, but 'Vinny' handled his first Crufts 5th March 2020 very well for a young dog winning Best Puppy there. And then, due to the covid-19 pandemic, all the shows stopped. So when life returns to normal and the dog shows begin again, hopefully 'Vinny' will be ready to continue in his winning ways. In any case he's won our hearts.
