He has sired OBEDIENCE STARS... CH Dorre Don Searchus of Winsdown U.D.,P.C.; CH Winsdown Blue Deft V Windward C.D.; Winsdown Blue Jay C.D. Carbon has been a wonder Sire and a legend in his own time. Given to me at 6 months as pet quality he proved that a dog doesn't have to be a show dog to be a GREAT SIRE. He has stamped type all his own that is breeding on and on... He has put a lovely refined head piece with a sound front end that is coupled with lovely movement and the best feet in the breed. He produced a cardigan at last that is pretty, typey and sound, as well as to the Standard. I would like to thank the judges, All Breed and Specialist that saw the overwhelming QUALITY in his offspring. Reference/Remarks: In this copy of the Dog World advertisement, some changes were edited and written or typed in over the printed text which I've included above. Originally it stated Carbon to be #2 All Time Cardigan Sire and sire of 20 champions. This honor has since been overshadowed by modern sires, but for the time well deserved.
