"Oliver"

May 16, 1994 - November 13, 2003

Oliver finished easily, winning a 5-point major and several Best of Breeds while still in the classes.

Although only shown as a "special" on a limited basis, he was in the Top Ten breed system during 1996, and loved being shown in the Veteran's Classes.

Oliver's contributions to the breed were numerous.  He sired the following:

  • An Award of Merit winner (Ch. Elante Grace Under Fire)
  • Pedigree's Top Producing Brood Bitch in 2002 (Ch. Elante Grace Under Fire)
  • A group winning and multiple group placing dog (Ch. BonnyBrook's Mad About you)
  • The 2004 floating National Specialty Best of Breed winner and group winner (Ch. BonnyBrook's All About Me)
  • His grand-daughter, Ch. Elante Triple Play was Winners Bitch and Best of Winners at the 2006 Bedlington Terrier Club of America floating Specialty at the age of 7 1/2 months
  • His grand-son, Ch. Elante Grand Slam was BOS in Sweepstakes at the BTCA National Specialty in 2007

Oliver was a lovely, extreme dog; possessing tremendous movement, but most importantly, he had a wonderful temperament and consistently passed it along to his children, making them a joy to live with.
