CH Crosswynd’s Cracker Jack – late 1960’s

“Big Jack”
Black and Tan Standard Smooth Dog
Sire: Kenneth of Crosswynd ROM pending
Dam: Crosswynd’s Moonglow ROMX pending
Whelped: March 15, 1965
Died: June 11, 1974
Breeders: Barbara and Ralph Lovering
Owners: Barbara and Ralph Lovering, then Mr. and Mrs. Charles C. Statler.

DCA 1966 Best of Breed at the age of 11 months from the classes.  After beating numerous champions to win the Smooth variety, Jack faced Longhaired BOV winner CH Pegremos Paragon L and Wirehaired BOV winner CH Pondwick’s Hoblin in the BOB competition but prevailed!  This was only his second time in the ring.  Jack was ineligible for the Westminster KC show later in the week as he was under a year old.

Jack repeated as DCA Best of Breed in 1967 and 1968.  He was the Hound Group winner at Westminster in 1968 and 1969.  During his short show career, Jack won four all-breed Best in Show and was BISS 20 times. His owners and handler Dorothy Hardy, retired Jack in late 1969 because they though it “only fair to take him out of competition and give some of the younger dogs a chance to win some of the big ones”! [Quote from the November 2, 1969 New York Times report on the DALI specialty.]
