Specialty Shows 2019 Judges
Ted Eubank-Pinecrest Cavaliers
My wife, Mary Grace, and I have owned Cavaliers for 28 years. We bred our first litter in 1992 under the kennel name Pinecrest. Since that time, we have made up more than 100 AKC Champions and 50 Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club, USA Champions. I have a great passion for conformation dog shows and take tremendous pride in finishing the majority of our dogs as a breeder/owner/handler.
Dogs that we have owned have won the American Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Club National Specialty in 2007, Best of Breed at the AKC National Championship Show once and the CKCSC,USA National Specialty four times. Three times I have shown our dogs to Best of Breed at Westminster Kennel Club and once to Best of Breed at Crufts. I am now approved to judge the AKC’s Toy Group.
My first dog was an English Springer Spaniel and my first show dog was an Afghan Hound. I have bred, owned and showed champions, Group, National Specialty and BIS winners in four different Groups both sides of the Atlantic! I am best known for my PBGVs which I have pioneered since the 1970s. I bred my first litter of Cavaliers in 1982 from a Ronnoc bitch (I am from Northern Ireland), largely on Homerbrent lines - lines I pretty much kept to over the years. Several of my Cavaliers preceded my move from the UK to the USA in 1995. Today I judge the Hound Group, most of the Sporting Group and Cavaliers.
I am impressed by the great strides the breed has made here in the USA but I still have a picture in my mind's eye avorite all time Cavalier, to me a template of the breed - Eng Ch Alberto of Kindrum! - look him up in the history book if you do not know him! Thank you for this opportunity to judge your beautiful dogs.
