I love Sam. He and I traveled all over Region 2 and 5 for three years learning Good Sportsmanship, and meeting new people. He had a great show career. He loved doing it, until he let me know he was done. He has sired several litters. His kittens have his massive boning, and nice old type (not extreme) of the Maine Coon breed. Red Baron (below) is his grandson. At 26 pounds full grown, Sam is truly a gentle giant.

Everyone that meets Red Baron smiles. He is a silly boy who loves the show hall and all of the attention that goes with it. I showed him though his kitten-hood, until he got his Grand Championship. I was lucky enough to have my friend Jeff show Red Baron this show season. We are waiting for the results! Meanwhile, Red Baron remains a good friend, and silly boy living with Jeff and Aslan.
