Buster: Ch. Gonetoground Rockn Robin
24 Dec 2002 – 9 Jan 2009
Sadly “lost” while being exercised just a short distance from home.
Buster was the only male in Trouble’s first litter. He was definitely the ring leader and boss of the litter but was never spiteful or bad tempered. As a small pup he showed great promise and we waited and hoped that he would not dash our expectations. He didn’t - he grew into a sound dog and great “showman”.
Buster was an amazing dog and I am so proud of what he and his owner Robert Price achieved together in the show ring - his record says it all:
He was one of the youngest dogs, at just a few days over six months, to take a CC and at his very first outing!
He was made a Champion at the Welsh KC Ch Show in August 2004, in his adopted country, when he was just 20 months old, a really memorable day! He went on to take a total of 12 CCs and 8 BOBs including BOB at the PRT Club Championship show in November 2004 and Terrier Gp 2 at Darlington in 2005 in a show career spanning less than five years.
Crufts 2006 was unforgettable as it was the day when Buster was awarded the Dog CC and Res BOB and his daughter Misty took Bitch CC and BOB under Judge Alan Broadstock – a fantastic achievement.
Misty (Ch Miss Teeq of Andralok) followed in his footsteps and rapidly rose through the ranks to take her crown. Her wins to date include 10 CCs and 9 BOBs including BOB at Crufts in 2006 and again in 2008.
At home Buster was a much loved pet. He had a wonderful temperament which he has passed on to his offspring and a distinctive glint in the eye. He was totally trustworthy with other dogs, he was kind and tolerant with pups, and unlike some terriers would prefer to turn his head than to take part in any act of aggression. He was a real “gentleman”.
He is missed dreadfully by us all.
