MINCEY, Mrs Marilynn BC,
Born and educated in New York Marilynn immigrated to Canada with her husband and children in 1971 with one Airedale Terrier. They began showing and breeding Airedales under the Cymbeline prefix in 1972. Because of her background in Education judging was a natural continuation of Marilynn's interest in dogs. She was licensed in 1984 by the Canadian Kennel Club to judge Terriers. Continuing the education process over the years has brought her to the culmination this year (2004) with the awarding by the CKC of her All Breed License. Over the years she and her husband Everett (also All Breeds - see above) have bred more than 50 Champion Airedale Terriers, many that have won group and Best In Show awards. Also some have received their Championship in the USA and Bermuda. Their greatest honour was in 1981 when their own homebred bitch Am. Can. Bermuda Champion Cymbeline Special Angel became Top Terrier in Canada. They have dogs of their breeding doing impressive winning in Russia and Hong Kong. They have owned and shown Fox Terriers (Wire), Standard Poodles, Miniature Dachshunds (wire and long coated), and Lakeland Terriers. Marilynn has judged in the USA, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Russia, Ukraine, South Africa, Chile, and in most of the Canadian provinces. She has an extensive background in grooming Terriers for the show ring, and is willing to give seminars on grooming and care of wirehaired dogs. She has also given handling seminars and judging seminars. Marilynn has experience judging junior handling and is willing to judge juniors in other countries.
