Vogels Judges At Westminster



Cindy Vogels of Greenwood Village, Colorado, judged the Terrier Group at the 129th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on February 14, 2005. Held at Madison Square Garden, Westminster is the most prestigious dog show in the United States and is one of the longest running sporting events in this country. Vogels is a noted dog show judge throughout North America and has also judged overseas. She has officiated in breed competition at Westminster previously, however this was her first time to preside over a group competition in this setting. Vogels selected Ch Cracknor Cause Celebre, a Norfolk Terrier, as the top entry in the group of 28 terrier breeds.

The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show was broadcast live on the USA Network. In his show ring introduction of Vogels, USA Network analyst David Frei told the television audience that she raises and shows champion Morgan horses. Vogels and her husband David own Andover Morgan Farm and have owned, bred and shown such champions as Chandel Absolut, Delusions Of Grandeur, AMHF Mr. Courageous, AMHF Double Miss C, and AMHF Absolut Grandeur under the direction of Mary Cockriel and Bob Kellert of The River's Edge.

Cindy Vogels along with her mother Jackie Gottlieb began showing Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers in 1968. Under the Andover prefix they have bred over 100 American champions including multiple specialty, group and Best in Show winners. They have also bred champion Kerry Blue, Welsh and Norfolk Terriers and Brittanys.
