“The great specimen may never be a great winner, but it will most certainly be a great producer, whereas a great winner may never reproduce, no matter its win record or advertising budget. The whelping box determines the great specimen. Promotion determines the great winner.” - Dan Sayers, Canine Artist and Irish Water Spaniel, Rhodeisan Ridgeback breeder
