BIVIN, Mr Edd Embry Texas,
AKC:Sporting, Working, Terrier, Toy, Non-Sporting
A native of Fort Worth, Texas, Edd acquired his first purebred dog at the age of twelve. This Pomeranian bitch introduced him to the sport of dogs and became the foundation of a breeding program that led to his breeding and exhibiting top-winning Pomeranians. From this base, he was to first judge Toy dogs at match shows at the age of fifteen. He was approved to judge Pomeranians at championship level in the USA in 1961. He has judged many All Breed and Specialty shows in the US and abroad, among those being many of the famous ones - Best in Show at Westminster 1999. Pursuing a career in education, he served for over thirty years as a major administrator at Texas Christian University. Looks for balance and proportion first, then carriage and outline and character. Never misses a good animal with proper type and character.
