49TH SAINT LAZAR CHAMPION SINCE DEC. 2004
FROM OVER 200 THE PAST 40 YEARS
The happy folks above are Allison & Dennis Miller of Atlanta, owners of the two Champion TMT's in their arms. Wanda & Charlie Walker are the Breeders & Co-Owners. Allison is holding the new Champ as of 8/22/09, Champion Saint Lazar's Captain America, "Cappy". The other fine young man in Dennis arms is Ch. Saint Lazar Strikes A Blaze, "Snickers". We commend Allison & Dennis for "sticking it out" with these two boys, they had some terrible Judging along the way. Snickers is the littermate of our Raisinette. Cappy is from two of our most outstanding TMT's, Ch. Saint Lazar's Indiana Jones COM, and our most recent AMTC Brood Bitch of the Year, Ch. Saint Lazar's Clarice BBY COM. CAPPY IS FROM AN ENTIRE LITTER OF CHAMPIONS, A TOTAL OF FIVE. Try to achieve that with puppy mill dogs!
THANK YOU ALLISON & DENNIS!
Ch Saint Lazar's Spiceisle Diamond Jack, "Jackson" became a new AKC Champion on July 11th by going Winners Dog and Best of Winners. The next day he defeated all the entered Toy Manchesters by going Best of Variety. Our congratulations to Jackson and his owner and our friend, Zandi Spicer (pictured above).

NEW CHAMPION SAINT LAZAR'S RING OF FIRE, "CASH", OUR SAINT LAZAR BRED STANDARD MANCHESTER C0-OWNED WITH DR. ROGER TRAVIS, GOES BEST OF WINNERS UNDER JUDGE ED BIVIN FOR A FIVE POINT MAJOR AND HIS AKC CHAMPIONSHIP.
Standard Manchester - Ch. Saint Lazar's Ring of Fire - "Cash". This magnificent boy was bred by Wanda & Charles Walker, and was given to our very good friend, Dr. Roger Travis, on a co-ownership back in 2006. Roger was off finishing Medical School, so Wanda and I took Cash to the AMTC National Specialty and related shows in Lincoln, NE in September of 2006. Wanda easily put a 5 Point Major on him his first time in a show ring. He was clearly the best Class dog there, but I assure you there was plenty of "sour grapes". Dr. Travis placed Cash with a "Handler" who basically just let him languish. When Roger finished up with Med School and got his practice going, he got Cash back out showing again. The result being a magnificent win under extremely well known Manchester Terrier Judge, Ed Bivin, in Oklahoma City this past week as Best of Winners, giving Cash his AKC Championship. Best of Winners means that he defeated every non Champion entered. Saint Lazar dogs or 100% Saint Lazar genes, took a Best of Winners all four days in OKC. Judge Bivin was effusive in his complementary remarks to Wanda & Roger during the photo session. The above photo was taken this morning, Monday, June 29th just before Roger headed for his Chatham, VA home. Cash is right on 18 lbs., and he is a flawless "mover". I would not change one thing about this fine boy. We again thank our LORD for continuing to bless us with the finest Manchester Terriers on Planet Earth.

BISS Ch. Saint Lazar's Topaz with Patricia Hall - Mentor Extraordinaire!
Photo by Gene Caron
This is Wanda and Pat kibitzing in the show ring in OKC trying to figure out what the Judge is doing. Those that were there, I am told, will understand to what I refer. Oh, no one ever figured it out. The pendant around Wanda's neck is her "London Blue Topaz" that I gave her sometime back. Of course I got one for BISS Ch. Saint Lazar's Topaz to honor her Best In Show accomplishment at 9 months of age.
Photo by Gene Caron
Topaz never lets up, she is always striking a pose. Before we loaned her to Pat, I delighted in taking her in for her debut in Birmingham, and then again at Perry, GA. Wanda couldn't beat me with our Garnet (left), but Garnet is a super nice girl. Topaz just simply has more "showmanship". Garnet is not far from achieving the necessary Championship points. If the competition this year thought Topaz was something to contend with, wait until they see what we have in waiting in the wings for next year. GOD is so good!
has been on a roll - 49 (8/22/09) new Champions
(measured from December 2004) -
There would be many more, but most of our pups go to discerning companion homes.
Many photos below, with date of Championship. Click on photo for larger version.
There have been over 200 Saint Lazar Champions the past 40 years. Nobody does it better!
NOTE THIS GOT SO TEDIOUS I QUIT UPDATING IT, WE HAVE MADE OUR POINT.
Ch. Saint Lazar's Darkside Jagger (12/10/04)
#1 - The very first time Jagger set foot in a show ring with our good friend & co-owner, Madonna Lee, Cocoa Beach, FL, he whipped all the competition for AKC Major points. He then went on to a very prestigious 4th place in the Toy Group, all from the Puppy Class. Congratulations Madonna for your super handling of this outstanding boy.
Ch. Saint Lazar's Ajay (12/12/04)
#2 - Pictured at age 6 months, and Ada/Klay boy. He is a typical Saint Lazar male, beautiful color, great "thumbprints", correct dark eye, and a very affectionate disposition. He is the Sire of our Champion littermates, Annie Oakley & Marshall Dillon, both top producers of Champions.
Ch. Saint Lazar's Cory Ch San Marino, Ch. Poland (1/9/05)
#3 - Born 7/14/03, a brother to Clarice in a repeat litter, the guy has the super Saint Lazar disposition. He is a show "natural", i.e., he loves to show, sets himself up perfectly for the Judge without one laying a hand on him. He is on loan under a co-ownership to Ilona Cerna of the Czech Republic. Ilona has taken Cory to a Championship of San Marino & Poland so far.
Ch. Saint Lazar's She's Ruthless (3/16/05)
#4 - Born 5/21/04 out of Rocket & Lance, she is very much her mother's dog, an "alpha bitch", hence the name "Ruthless". An absolutely gorgeous girl. She is nursing her first litter as this if written.
Ch. Saint Lazar's Diamond Lil ROM (4/30/05)
#5 - Lis is out of Jade & Lance, two of our best producers, Lance being Stud Dog of the Year. Lil is one of the best "movers" in the ring that we have had. Elegant is the word. Lil defeated a huge entry to gain her Championship. She went Best of Opposite Sex at the 06 AMTC National Specialty. Her entire litter are AKC Champions.
Ch. Saint Lazar's Sir Lancelot (4-30-05)
#6 - Diane Vendittoli, owner, of Montreal, Canada is pictured above with Lancelot who won Best of Breed 3 days in a row to garner his Canadian Championship. Lancelot has since gone on to win Best in Shows. He is a littermate to our Ruthless and a brother to our Indiana Jones, by a repeat breeding.
Ch. Saint Lazar's Habibi Sagi (5/9/05)
#7 - Owned by Dr. Roger Travis, Sagi won Best of Variety 4 straight days in PA taking a major each day to win her AKC Championship. This beautiful girl is littermate to our Diamond Lil, and the entire litter are Champions.
Ch. Saint Lazar's Alexis (5/7/05)
#8 - Judge Holly Somers, owner, of Portland, OR, handled Lexi to achieve her AKC Championship. A beautiful girl that hopefully will be used in a carefully "planned breeding".
Ch. Saint Lazar's Livia (5/22/05)
#9 - This very nice girl is Co-owner and bred with breeder friend Elizabeth Treese of St. Mary's , GA. Elizabeth gained Livia's Championship by showing her exclusively in the prestigious Bred by Exhibitor Class. Way to go Elizabeth & Livia!
Ch. Saint Lazar's Cherry Pie (6/26/06)
#10 - This fine girl achieved her Championship while being shown by co-owner & long time friend, Barbara Dillard of Henderson, NC. Cherry's sire is the great Raisin Pie, and she has his super temperament. Thanks Barb for a great handling job!
Ch. Saint Lazar's Lola at Burmack (7/12/05)
#11 - Lola is from an entire litter of Jade/Lance Champions. She is co-owned by Jim Burrows & Pat Mackesey, who took her to her Championship. Diamond Lil & Sagi are her littermates.
Ch. Saint Lazar She's A Rebel (8/26/05)
#12 - Rebel went Best of Winners beating the nation's best Class Bitches at the AMTC National Specialty weekend 9/19/05 in Olympia, WA. Owner handled by Wanda Walker exclusively in the Bred by Exhibitor Class to gain her Championship.
Ch. Saint Lazar's Indiana Jones (9/25/05)
#13 - The "real" Indy finally decided he liked dog shows, and he did it with a vengeance. He became a Champion on Charlie's birthday. He later defeated an entry of 23 TMT's in Ashville, NC including "professionally handled advertised" dogs. He has produced outstanding pups in carefully planned litters.
Ch. Brmck-St.Lzr Eleanor Rigby (9/25/05)
#14 This fine little girl whose mom is an English import, & whose sire is our Striker, achieved her Championship with Indy on my birthday. She finished with a "bang" with 4 major wins, the last as Best of Opposite Sex over 2 Champions. We have "Honey", a keeper from her first litter.
Ch. Saint Lazar's Regency (2/19/06)
#15 - "Regency" is owned by Rennie Feitz of Albuquerque, NM. He became a Champion at only 10 months of age. He took a Toy Group 4th placement his first time in a show ring. Some folks show for years and can't win a Best of Variety much less take a Group placement. Great job Rennie & Regency!
Ch. Saint Lazar's A'int She A Peach (4/9/06)
#16 - Owners Tobby & Ginger Jones of Charlotte, NC handled this beautiful Jillian/Striker girl to her AKC Championship. Peaches has some nice wins as a "Special". Great job folks!
Ch. Saint Lazar's Starbuck (4/15/06)
#17 - This nifty Sara/Marshall boy easily achieved his Championship at 9 months of age against very strong competition. He pulled off a Best of Variety at the AMTC District 2 Specialty against "professionally handed" dogs. He has sired very nice pups.
Ch. Saint Lazar's Rosie in Bloom (4/22/06)
#18 - Owner Barbara Munafo of Lawrenceburg, KY is a show novice, but you would not know it when she handled Rosie easily to her Championship. This very pretty Clarice/Lance girl has produced her first litter out of our JERK. Ewing. Great job Barbara!
Ch. Saint Lazar's Diamond Jim (6/11/06)
#19 - What can I say? His dam is Jade, & his sire is Stud Dog of the Year, Lance. DJ is compact, obedient, intelligent, affectionate, the absolute epitome of a totally correct Toy Manchester. He will be going to the UK in mid 07 for a new adventure.
Ch. Saint Lazar's Black Berry (6/24/06)
#20 - This beautiful girl is owned by our longtime friend, Barbara Dillard, who showed her to her Championship. We don't have a dog with better movement, coat, color, head, ear size/set, or temperament. Great job again Barbara!!
Ch. Saint Lazar's Betty Boop (7/8/06)
This very fine Striker/Tara girl gained her Championship in only 8 show weekends under the superb handling of owner Karen Bristol of Burkburnett, TX. She was undefeated in the Classes! Karen & husband, Rex, have become great friends. Thanks a million folks!
Ch. Saint Lazar Burmack Sabatino (7/15/06)
#22 - I don't think we have ever had a prettier puppy than Tino. Picked by co-owner Jim Burrows, he easily got his Championship once his littermate brother, Starbuck, got out of competition with him.
Ch. Saint Lazar's J.R. Ewing (7/22/06)
#23 - This fine, fine, example of a correct Toy male is a Jade/Ace (Stud Dog of the Year) dog. He exhibits the best of both in that he has a perfectly correct coat, great color & markings, fine head and ear set, super nice temperament, plus he is a proven stud of Champions. We did him an injustice by interrupting his show career & not achieving his Championship sooner.
Ch. Saint Lazar's Peach & Pie (8/18/06)
#24 - Another beautiful gal in the long line of Champions from Saint Lazar. Regularly beating tough competition, Peaches finished with 4 Majors. However, once again we can't say enough about the dedication of our long time friend Barbara Dillard from Henderson, NC. Her Son, Russell, is without peer when it comes to socializing & training pups. Naturally, this is a "Striker" girl.
Ch. Saint Lazar's Legacy At Islay (8/15/06)
#25 - "Jacob", the beautiful littermate brother to Betty Boop, is owned by Margaret McNab in Canada. The boy tore up the competition achieving his Championship. He is shown above winning a Toy Group 2 placement. Saint Lazar is extremely grateful & proud of Margaret for her outstanding training & handling.
Ch. Saint Lazar's Pris of Tara (9/24/06)
#26 - The competition gave a big sigh of relief when Pris gained her Championship. She was virtually undefeated & became a Champion at only 7 months of age. She repeatedly beat highly advertised "professionally handled" Champions, and my publishing her record was very poorly received. So be it, as the man said, "if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen". She is a Tara/Lance girl.
Ch. Saint Lazar's Black Boy (X-X-X)
#27 - Black Boy is co-owned and shown by friend, Barbara Dillard. I have mislaid his "vitals", but will soon have this from Barbara. One will notice that Barb has done quite well in this gallery when it comes to taking good dogs to a Championship. This is not his photo above, but is "Mystery Boy".
Ch. Saint Lazar's Morgan Joe (10/22/06)
#28 - Mo Jo was born on Charlie's birthday, 9/25/03, out of Josie and Morgan Jake. He loafed around the kennel just being loved & petted until friend Barbara Dillard asked if she could take him and show him. Sure enough, it didn't take Barb long to knock off some keen competition and take this fine boy to his Championship. You the girl Barb!
Ch. Saint Lazar's Annie Oakley (x-x-x)
#29 - Annie is pictured above at age 6 mo. She matured into a beautiful dog, and is another girl that Barbara Dillard worked her "handling" magic on. Annie and Ryder produced Penny Lane, who is pictured next in this gallery. We are looking forward to her producing even more Champs. Thanks again Barbara, what a true friend!
Ch. Saint Lazar's Penny Lane (2/3/07)
#30 - Also pictured at 6 mo of age, Penny achieved her Championship by defeating 10 TMT's, including 4 Champions, three of whom were "professionally handled". She is a very sweet dog, and we hope she will soon be producing her first litter.
Ch. Saint Lazar's Raven Rock (2/10/07)
#31 - What a pretty boy! Raven is owned by Stella Woodard who resides in KY and she was assisted in the ring by Jeremy & Rachel Mcclister. These folks have been steadfast in the show ring, and they deserve a hardy congratulations.
Ch. Saint Lazar's Zorro
#32 - An "Indy" and Rebel boy, he had absolutely no problem getting his Championship. He had produced 3 outstanding litters, and his show career is not over.
Ch. Saint Lazar's Amethyst
#33 - A Jade & Alex girl she is the very best from "planned breeding". It took her only 3 show outings to gain her Championship. No one can beat her "ring presence".
#34 An Aurora & Marshall Dillon girl, she lives in Valentigny, France with the Gerard Maurice family. Sold as a pet, she has excelled in the show ring.
I have stopped posted photos here. I think those who can not contain their jealousy & envy have finally got the point. There have been well over 200 Saint Lazar Champions, and the Hall of Fame requirements were changed due to our domination of it.
A NEW CHAMPION!
OUR 44TH CHAMPION SINCE DEC. 04 - WELL OVER 200 TOTAL!
Best of Variety 9/18, Best of Opposite Sex 9/19
Our newest Champion, Ch. Saint Lazar Diamonds R Forever, achieved this honor September 18, 2008, at the Prestige Toy Club of Atlanta Specialty Show, by earning all of her points from the prestigious Bred By Exhibitor Class. Her first time in the ring she went Best of Variety for "major" points and defeated a "professionally shown" Special (Champion). Her last time in the ring as a Class dog (non Champion), she defeated 14 dogs for Best of Variety, including 2 "professional handled" Specials. All of her points were earned with Charlie Walker showing her, which is a miracle as he doesn't know squat about training and showing dogs. GOD is merciful, and I thank HIM from the bottom of my heart.
Saint Lazar's Biggdogg
Conquers Hong Kong In Show Debut
We received the email below on 3/24 from Jeff Yeung in Hong Kong. In less than two weeks, Snoop has adjusted to his new home, and then proceeded to the show ring to take a fabulous win, especially for a pup that is barely six months old. Jeff says he is everything he wanted and he is totally satisfied. Further Jeff says Snoop had many comments as to his quality and "ring presence". See additional photos below which clearly show this.
Snoop making Saint Lazar big time proud!
Dad gum Jeff, we should have kept him, what a fine pup, and he is barely six months. Our thanks to the Photographer, fine shots.
Saint Lazar's Emily Rose - Another Pea Out Of The Same "Peach & Pie" Pod!
The beautiful six month old girl pictured above is Saint Lazar's Emily Rose shown carrying on the family tradition, which is WINNING! Emily is the littermate sister to Saint Lazar's Biggdog Snoop who also took an awesome win his first time in the show ring in Hong Kong. Emily is owned and shown by Shirley Cantelo, above right with the big winning grin, who lives in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Wanda and I need to give credit to our Partner, Barbara Dillard, who whelped Emily's and Snoop's litter at her home in Henderson, NC. Regular viewers of our web site know that Barbara has produced some of our very best, and Wanda and I are so appreciative of our over thirty year friendship. Gracious what a super nice girl and win Shirley, congratulations!

Polly did a great job training and showing this magnificent boy. She also has "Bruiser", who will no doubt be her next Saint Lazar Champion. Wanda and I appreciate you Polly, and the love you have for your guys and gals.

CHAMPION SAINT LAZAR'S NEVER SAY NEVER - "BRONSON"
Champ;ion Saint Lazar's Never Say Never - "Bronson" at age 8 months won his AKC Championship May 4, 2008 in only 3 consecutive show weekends by going UNDEFEATED in the Classes, with all wins being "Major" points. This boy did not come from a random mating of two available dogs, but is the culmination of 4 decades of breeding experience, and a very carefully "planned line breeding" of his sire and dam. Congratulations to proud Owner (shown above), Zandi Spicer of Spokane, WA, who is one of the infinitesimal number of TMT Breeders who practices "planned line breeding". Zandi is also one of the finest trainers in preparing a Toy Manchester for the show ring that I know. What an outstanding accomplishment by Zandi and Bronson. Thanks for the photo Zandi!

The entry was universally acknowledged as being one of the highest quality Toy entries in the history of the club, and Wanda and I can not thank Jessica enough for her superb presentation of this outstanding girl.
In addition to Diamond Lil's win, Saint Lazar won a five (5) point "major" with Saint Lazar's Zorro (Toy) at only age 6 mo and 8 days from the prestigious Bred By Exhibitor Class. He is shown above looking at Kelly McClellan.
