Billy was our first show dog -- and one of the driving forces in our continued participation in the sport of purebred dogs. When we first began, we never dreamed Billy would do as much for us as he did -- and we feel blessed to have owned and loved such a wonderful dog.
Billy became one of the only TMT's to receive a Best In Show in Canada. Though he would make only one trip to the U.S. Billy certainly made an impression, taking both Best of Opposite Sex and Best of Winners at the 1987 AMTC National Specialty.
Billy combined all of the elements of a great show dog, as the Nationals' judge Mrs. Doris S. Wear commented: "[he was] a beautiful headed dog, very typey [and] moved well." On top of that, Billy was known to "sparkle" in the ring. A snapshot taken of him during the '87 National was used by the AKC Gazette (The American Kennel Club's all-breed magazine) several times over the ensuing years to illustrate ring presence -- something he never lacked!
Billy was inducted into the Canadian Manchester Terrier Club Record of Merit posthumously in 2001.
During his career at stud Billy also sired numerous champions including:

Ch Fwaggles Spud D'Ericlam
Ch Fwaggles Justice at Edelmar
