This is an article about Titus my patient. Note website to see him at Westminster.
Dear Marshfield Mariner,
I am a Marshfield resident and I just returned from exhibiting our 22 month old dog, Titus, at the Westminster Dog Show at Madison Square Garden.
Titus is a "canine good citizen" and a multi-best of breed champion. Titus lives with school age children and two champion show dogs. He comes from a long line of dogs competing at Westminster, including his sire, half brothers, aunts, uncles, etc. Last year his aunt won Best of Opposite sex at Westminster.
Titus recently appeared in the national publication "The Rottweiler Magazine Monthly". Titus' sire, Magnum, was ranked #5 rottweiler in the United States in 2005. Titus' half brother, Axel, was ranked #2 rottweiler in the United States in 2006.
Titus enjoys taking long walks at Brant Rock; Rexhame Beach; Humarock and hiking at Nelson Forest and Two Mile Farm. He frequents Marshfield Youth Soccer games. He has quite a fan club, with many spectators who have known him since he was 8 weeks old (when he first started attending games). He is also an obedience Champion with a "Rally Novice" title.
I've attached a picture of Titus winning Best of Breed at the Northwestern CT Dog Show (Sept 2009). From Left to Right: Judge Grace McGlynn (Ms. McGlynn was the rottweiler judge at Westminster this year); "Titus" Multi Best of Breed CH Cammcastle's Quiet Storm of Eis Haus RN CGC; Valerie McGraw (Titus' professional handler and a rottweiler breeder "EIs Haus Rottweilers"). I have purchased the right to publish this picture - so feel free to use it in print or online.
Titus' achievements include:
*Many Best of Breed wins, including "Best of Breed" at 8 months old
* Five Puppy Group Placements and Six Best of Breed- Puppy (including the dog show in Boston)
*Best in Puppy Sweepstakes at the CT River Working Group Association
Titus is a promising young dog. He is currently competing against the top ranked dogs in the United States. Our plans include limited showing until he matures. Until then, we will continue with obedience and having fun with tennis balls and making snow angels!
Titus is co-owned by Marshfield residents Jeffrey Lewis and Elizabeth Lewis.
