About Margery Good & Charmin

BIS % Eukanuba

Speaking of Charmin - "An overall excellent dog, wonderful size and measurements, very good fore-chest, level topline, great angulations-front and back, good back porch, perfection in grooming and handling."

Judge Mr. Robert Paust, Sweden.

Margery Good’s passion for dogs also started at an early age. As a child, she went around her neighborhood asking dog owners if she would walk or brush their dogs. While she was till young, Margery started working for Edna Dobbins who had show Airedales and Miniature Schnauzers. Miss Dobbins had assisted Tom Gately, one of the Terrier "greats" of the world, so she was able to teach correct grooming practices. It was at Miss Dobbins kennel that Marge fell in love with Sealyham Terriers. Margery was in college studying Biology when she purchased her first Sealyham, the last Surgenpride bred. Margery showed her to Winners Bitch at the National Specialty. She produced Ch. Goodspice Tarragon who won Best in Show at Montgomery Co. KC (the biggest terrier show in the world) in 1979 with Margery as breeder-owner-handler!

Margery bought her Goodspice Kennels in 1980 and started professional handling full scale showing all breeds. To name all the top winning dogs associated with Marge would take until our lunch break, but a few include Ch. Goodspice Tarragon, Ch. Hobbit Hills Up’n Adam (the #1 terrier in 1981). Ch. Kifel Point of Vue (Lakeland), and Ch. Torset Touch of Class (#1 terrier in 1991 and used as the standard in the AKC breed video).

More recently, Marge has risen to the pinnacle of her career with Ch. Efbe’s Hidalgo at Goodspice, better known as “Charmin,” bred by her dear friend from Canada, France Bergeron. He began his show career at six months of age winning two 5-point majors. Charmin is the top-winning Sealyham of all time and has won more top awards than any dog in the world, for example 95 Bests in Show including Crufts, the World Dog Show, AKC/Eukanuba Invitational, and Montgomery County Kennel Club, plus Group 1 and 2 at Westminster, the #1 Terrier for two years; the #4 and 5 All-Breeds in 2007 and 2008. Marge was nominated as the 2010 AKC Terrier Group Breeder of the Year.

Now that both Charmin and Merci have retired, Margery is campaigning Valley, CH Efbe's Goodspice Easy Money. She continues to handle a full string of mostly terriers at about 150 shows during the year, and she strives to do her best to help people around her.
