Hey "Elmo" wave to everyone, and tell them Happy Easter from us. I just can't get this puppy to wave to you all, and my sister is no help either. I'm "Caleb" and my sister "Lindy" and I were hunting for Easter Eggs when this puppy came up to help us. My grandma Cheryl called this puppy "Elmo" Healy's Jamacian Me Crazy.
"Bubba" here, as in Healy's Bubba Shot The Jukebox, and my side kick here is Healy's She's Tuff 'E' Nuff O' Italy. We're just kind of hanging out here on this old fence while it snows real good. Lot's of people have asked to copy this photo of us, it is kind of a unique photo. I just happen to be the sire of Am. & Can. Ch. Healy's Bubbaliscious Ruffus, and my sire was Dixieland's Mr. Shake Rag Elvis, (ptd) "Germany" my friend here is the dam of some really nice pup's herself. We've gone on now, but we both made our mark in the Breeding Program at Healy's Noble Friends.

Here's the St. Bernard at it's Best, whether you are talking about Head or Over All Type this was a dog way before his time. With the Correct Head, Over all Type and Balance of Bone Head and Structure, which only goes to prove that the Correct Head and Over All Type had already been locked in by the 70s, if you can't today get it this good, or better, it's time to quit and start over. This dog was bred by Col. Wm. Hagel and I obtained him back in the 70s. He is pictured here winning over specials from the classes for Best OF Breed.
He was a one of a kind and one that comes along once in a lifetime, as you can see he has the leg under him that is required for this breed, and the structure that is typical of this breed, and one of the most perfect Heads I have ever seen and that takes in a lot of St. Bernards. His name was Ch. Siegfried's Silver Skate and he was a Great St. Bernard, could he win today, I'd bet Money on that. And when you have owned dog's like our Skate was, it's very hard to go to Dog Shows today and see what people will show or call show dog's.
In otherwords I was fortunate enough to have owned some of the Best Type dog's, therefore I have always set my evalutions of what our Standard calls for and says in each paragraph a priority instead of showing just any St. Bernard. Correct Head and Over All Type are a hard thing to learn and understand, but here is as good an example of what that standard means, as is possible.
