Rudy was the only male in the only litter that Zipper ever sired. If Rudy had been green and had three legs, we would have STILL brought him home. So much for scientific puppy testing!
If there were size varieties for Papillons, Rudy would be in the “giant” category. He was 13 inches tall and weighed 14 pounds. In contrast, his father was 10 inches tall and weighed 5 pounds! Rudy’s ears could never decide whether they wanted to be up or down, so they did both!
Rudy earned his Tracking Dog title at six months of age. We started obedience training when he was seven months of age, and we had our battles over the years. I never intended to be “competitive” with Rudy and only thought he would earn a UD. Rudy FAR surpassed my expectations by finishing his OTCH in June of 1999, after earning his TDX on his first try that same year. He earned 8 High in Trials, 6 High Combineds, and a perfect score of 200! Rudy and his late father "Zipper" are the first father/son OTCH/TDX Papillons, and Rudy was my fourth OTCH and my fourth TDX.
