Am.Can.Ch.Minuteman Eleventh Hour
Nov.11, 1987 - March 31, 2002

Minuteman Minis have earned over 100 Championship titles on 5 continents since 1983. They include Best In Show, group and National Specialty winners on both sides of the border, along with top producing sires in Canada, the US and Australia. (Typically, there are about 8 puppies born here in a year.)

Breeding show dogs - or good ones, that is -can be an extraordinary challenge. The successful breeder must be geneticist, emergency technician, midwife, personal trainer, nutritionist, artist, ethicist and canine psychologist.

It doesn't hurt to be a little obsessive compulsive, as well.
