Brandon is very special to us, thus deserves his own header above. The multiple successes he has had earned him this honour. He has produced very well for us and his crowning glory to date is going Select for the 3rd time at the 2012 GSDCC Inc. Canadian Nationals at the age of 9!!  Brandon earned the coveted title of ROMC right after!

Here is Brandon's critique from the 2012 Canadian National:

SELECT             ~              VETERAN DOG             ~            CH. ALFARO'S RAMBLING MAN

When this dog was announced as the veteran for the video and named I was very excited. I have always appreciated his movement and had no idea who he was. He is one I have loved for years. This dog has heart. At nine years of age he gave 110% willingly while keeping up with the younger dogs. Yes, at the very end he did let down on me, but he gave too much, for too long to be denied. He has excellent character, in good condition, strong in sidegait, clean coming and going, willing and eager to please. For me it was an honor to have a veteran in my ring in his condition. He is a trubute to our breed.
I was told this was his handler's first National.
Neither he nor the handler stopped smiling. I would love to see them both back next year.

April Fools day 2013 was not a cheery one for us.

We lost our beloved Brandon suddenly to non symptomatic splenic cancer repercussions.

"Brandon was our dream come true and I will never forget the sound of the crowd cheering and
the look of pure joy on his face as he came towards me in the Veteran Class at the National last September." (Dawn)

We want to thank everyone for the overwhelming support throughout his career and
to his excellent handlers, Michael, Trish, Jenn, Ron, George, Morris, Angela and Raul.

He shall live on in his kids and very clearly in our memories.

Dawn, Tom and Alan
From the very beginning to the very end,
he was always a

STAR!
