(a very good place to start, but I never want to have to repeat it!)
This gallery presents encouragement to the aspiring dog enthusiast who has no experience or idea of how or where to start. These dogs are not in my breeding program and only represent a history of Troy Clifford Dargin’s handling and grooming. It has taken me years to get to where I am but I enjoyed every minute of where I was when I was there. With diligence and hard work you can do the same thing. Dog showing is truly an art and a sport, not to be taken lightly. Are politics involved? Absolutely, but where is politics not involved? I truly believe that if you breed an EXCELLENT specimen, no judge (no matter how political), can dump you and I am proof of that! Judges really do want to be able to put up EXCELLENT dogs. That is why Owner-handlers must work harder than the professional. It would be hard to tell if I were an owner or a professional in the ring. The only clue is knowing that my name is on the dogs that I show. Take heart, you can do it! And if you are a seasoned enthusiast reading this, look below and have a laugh!!! We can truly love life when we can laugh at ourselves!
