After two years as a special, “Jennie” broke the Best in Show record for Welsh Terrier Bitches, previously held for thirty years (1984-2014) by the great Ch. Anasazi Annie Oakley. “Annie’s” breeder, Nancy O’Neal remarked on the occasion: “I extend sincere congratulations to Jennie’s breeders, owners, and handlers. The great ones do not come along often, but when they do they are phenomenal.”* The All-Time record for a dog is still held by the other Anasazi legend, the late Ch. Anasazi Billy The Kid, owned and campaigned by Bruce Schwartz, with 100 Best in Show wins.
“Jennie” is the AKC’s No. 1 Welsh Terrier Grand Champion with 700 points.
During their partnership, Sharon Abmeyer and Keith Bailey bred and owned the No. 1 Welsh Terrier in the country in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2017 (as well as the No.1 Terrier in America in 2017), and now with Bayleigh Welsh Terriers, Keith Bailey co-owns with Janet McBrien (Brightluck) the No. 1 Welsh Terrier in the country in 2018 and 2019 (as well as the No.1 Terrier in America in 2019). Over all the years, their dogs have been expertly conditioned, cared for, and presented in the ring to great success by professional handlers Tracy Szaras and Luiz Antonio Abreu.
