To this point, Thompson's The Duke has been one of our greatest productions.  We offered this HKB's Ratchet x Thompson's Dolly Parton 1st pick male to Eddie Rodriguez, because he was so excited about Shortybulls and would do the right thing to promote The Duke in the southern-central region.  The day Eddie came to pick up The Duke as a pup, I had told him his little Shortybull was destined to be great! We only exchanged pictures the next several months, and when we saw him at his 1st ABKC show in Houston, TX, little Duke was already revealing his potential.  With this young Shortybull, there was no "fugly" stage....At 6 months, The Duke won the  Best of Breed in the 1st show in Houston. Being the competitor I am, I didn't like not winning, so I entered up 2-year-old Thompson's Annie Oakley (now GrCh Annie) to give Duke some added competition.  Ha! When Annie did win the 2nd show Best of Breed honor, I actually asked....."You mean, my Annie beat The Duke?"

That was only the beginning. Being the work-a-holic that owner Eddie Rodriguez is, he realized he didn't have the time to get The Duke to the shows to compete.  We introduced Eddie to Julie Kowal, one of the greatest dogshow handlers of our times.  Julie took an initial walk around The Duke and said, "This Shorty is special!" For the next 6 months, beginning in Dec. of 2013 through 2014, Julie Kowal worked her magic, and The Duke
won honor after honor.  To date in 2014, little ole Duke has won 19 Best in Breeds, which totaled an astounding 12 Best In Show wins in ABKC.  This currently places Thompson's The Duke as the #2 Shorty nationally in ABKC! Thompson's Shorty Bull Kennel is super proud of The Duke and will be forever indebted to the dedication of both owner, Eddie Rodriguez, and  to handler, Julie Kowal, in giving this Shorty male the opportunity to earn such recognition in the ABKC!
