In June of 2003, I purchased FINCH'S PEACEMAKER PARTI (Gunner) and then put him out on the show circuit with Lynn Meyer that August.
Lynn showed him only 8 times, taking nothing less than Reserve, and he promptly finished within 2 weeks. Not only did he finish with a 3-point, a 4-point, and a 5-point major ... but the 5-point major was at the Des Moines Specialty Show.
People, including myself and Diane Finch (his breeder), were amazed that Gunner finished that fast as a mismark with front white boots. Being totally new to showing at the time, I didn't realize what a remarkable feat that was and I often refer to Gunner as "The Boy with White Boots". I kept the email that Diane sent me telling Christine Heartz about Gunner's championship:
September of 2003:

"Christine - Yesterday I got to witness Colt's 8th offspring finish her championship in grand style. Passion needed only one single point to finish and she finished with a 5 point major at the Des Moines fall specialty! But she wasn't the bigger thrill - Gunner (Finch's Peacemaker Parti ) went WD for a 5 point major. Last weekend was his first weekend out and he got 2 majors last weekend; now his third show and he gets another major and today he went WD (in Wisconsin) for 1 point and then went BOB over Lynn's special Ö so last I heard she was going back into group with him.
Gunner just blew me away with his movement!!!! And he has power in his reach and drive - you'd think you had a big dog pulling you along. I had to lead him back in for BOB yesterday. This boy, if he can finish tomorrow, will finish the fastest I've ever finished one of mine. If his Parti sons can do this, it will be an awesome Parti. Lynn shows him tomorrow for one point so I have my fingers crossed. Diane (Finch's Pomeranians Ltd.,"
And the rest ... as they say ... is history. Gunnerís sire is Can. & Am. BISA CH Chriscendo Call to Arms (Colt), bred by and owned by Christine Heartz in Canada, and Gunner produces a large percentage of parti's with excellent conformation. Gunner is also the first Pomeranian in breed history to achieve his ROM (Registry of Merit) from 6 parti championed offspring, including:
(1) CH FinchsChars Spellbound Parti (Merlin) 2003
(2) CH FinchsChars Makin Waves Parti (Splash) 2004
(3) CH Chelanes Simply Irrisistible (Chrissy) 2005
(4) CH Finch's Bet On The Parti (Nash) July 2005
(5) CH Chelanes Remington Steele (Remy) December 2005
(6) CH Chelanes Peace Keeper Parti (Keeper) December 2006
Gunner kids and grandkids currently showing with Nina Fetter of Ohio are:

(1) Chelanes Mr. Wonderful (Ethan ... orange Gunner son)
(2) Chelanes Ghostbuster (Buster ... orange and white parti Gunner grandson)
(3) Chelanes Glamour Girl (Mimi ... sable and white parti Gunner daughter)
and with Kathy McClain of Michigan:

CH Finch's Peacemaker Parti, ROM:
First Pomeranian in breed history to attain an ROM (Registry of Merit) from 6 championed parti offspring.

Gunner (now 7 years old) enjoyed his visit with old friends at the 2008 Pom Nationals in Louisville, Kentucky last month and sat on my lap during most of the show. He even got to see his handler, Lynn Meyer, who gave him the old "cookies" he loves so much. I sent his new pix to his breeder, Diane Finch, whose comments was ... "He's a coat factory!"
