|Merit's Bud Pedigree
I'm a former French, but now I live in Bruxelles (Belgium).
The dog I was pictured with, is Miret's "Bud" who produced Yankee Boy's (Norrod's) "Ch Gambler". He is pure Red Boy and
always produced winners in every litter, even with some medium quality bitches. The guy in the right is Robert Hoffman from
Tennessee. The picture was taken in Paris back in 98, during their 20th years wedding anniversary. I bring them in very good
places in Paris : Eiffel tower, Moulin Rouge, Notre-Dame and may others .... Robert and his wife Jenny never had child and
consider me as their son. I'm still in contact with Robert at least every month. Jenny died years ago and Robert had now health
issues. I wish I will be able to go back in USA to see him this year. He is out of the dog since 3 years, but still one of
my best friend in USA.
We were catch by authorities back in 2000 in Louisiana with Jerry Beene and some others. And, I can tell you that Jerry
Beene was a real gentleman in every sense of the term. He took all responsibilities on him and we were just charged with misdemeanor.
I meet Robert Hoffman for the first time a week after the Bastrop bust and we stay good friend till now. It was 20 years
Between 1990 and 2000, I was lucky to be only busted 2 times in USA and escape from the law the
first time. On the 200 fights (including some in Europe) I was invited, it's a pretty good ratio.
This is a letter sent to me by Antoine Peynet. He seems like a straight up tell it like he sees it guy. I admire people
who tell the truth like he does.
I'm not the guy who own the web site with the pictures and stories (including mine). I just answered to some questions
and tell what I have see when I was in the states.
I started in 1990, when I was 18 years old with a first trip at Gary Hammonds kennels when he just got "Parkson" back.
During a visit to Bob Wilson clinic to make the health certificate on an Alligator bitch I bought from Gary, I had the pleasure
to meet the late Bobby Smith on the parking lot.
Two years later when I was at Gary Athans kennels, whe go to a show where Bobby Hall was supposedly goes into some Athans
friends. After meeting everybody to a Walmart parking, I was invited by Bobby Smith to spend a full week to his place. During
this period, he had a magazine called "Face Your Dog" and I asked him about a 2XW called Rodriguez's "Gator" (who later became
Crenshaw's "Ch Gator") who was in cover. He told me that he didn't like Jeep/Red Boy dogs but that "Gator" was a very talented
It was a very big mistake, because I worked on "Tab" dog till 2000 with a very low percentage of good dogs. Many of my
"real" friends in the game tell me that I was going the wrong way, but I stayed on my mistake till the end. I mean by real
friends, people I stay in contact till today and who always helped me through the years. All of them were no more involved
in the dogs.
I tried almost all bloodlines : Chinaman, Boudreaux, Jeep, Red Boy, Red Devil, Virgil, Alligator , Boyles, Patrick, ...
But, I didn't realize that Miret's "Bud" was my best and breed him only few time (only 5 breeding). And he produced Champion
and winners in very litter. Another big mistake !!!!
About the pictures with other dogmen, I didn't make it anymore after the Bastrop bust, when I clearly realized what was
the reality. To much danger to be in pictures with dogmen.
I can talk straight about that, for 2 reason :
-I'm no more involved with the dogs since 2000, when I was busted in France and go to jail
-I agree 100% with you. Today having dog activities is the best way to go in jail and put his family in trouble.
When we were busted at the Bastrop bust, I was the guest of Bobby Smith and was one on the only 4 people who escape from
that. I was found by the guy of "Black Forest Kennels" (they owned Well's Ch "Oscar" at that time) 10 miles away from the
site, on a small country road. Contrary to a popular belief Bobby Smith wasn't catch by the police (and when you know Bobby's
size, it's hard to believe), but his car stayed on the location and he had to surrender. I was the guy who called his wife
to tell her what happened. And we found later that bobby hide himself in another motel.
At this time, it was a big story, because even in France there was images of the Athans, Hall and Hooten out of the court
on TV, just after there release.
I had a lot of good souvenir in Texas, meeting some legends by the way of Bobby Smith, including Coy who was like a fantom
during this period. My first dog show was another lesson for me. Invited by Bobby, I was sitting just near Nate Newton who
was at this time a legend and just after loosing 100$ on an Hammonds dog, I was preparing myself to the second show and I
receive a bump on my ass by Bobby in the front of everybody, who told me that before that, I had to learn how to save a dog
after a show. And, I spend the rest learning on the back of a truck how to use azium, soul-delta cortef, put an IV and more
... A good lesson to learn
Later I go back to Garrett who was out of the dog at that time and asked him about "Tab". And he introduce me to Albert
During my 10 years in the dogs I had the pleasure to meet a lot of people : Boudreaux, Garrett, Crenshaw, Hoffman, Holland,
Garner, Fat Bill, Hammonds, Havana Boys, Sorrell, Hargrove, Victor Aycart, Hardcore Kennels Team, DSK, Bobby hall, Stone City,
WCC and many more ...
I've no regrets and talking few months ago with Fat Bill, we goes to the same statement : We have see some of the best
dogs goes, see most of the ROM dogs alive, meet the best dogmen of the century, why take more risk and going to jail ?????
Another thing who opened my eyes to the reality : I was invited to the big show before the pig-picking back in 99, where
GD CH Sooo Evil lost against DSK's "Ch Coachise" (who was only a 1XW at that time). A cop was infiltrated and film everything,
including the death of Sooo Evil with an hidden camera on his buckle. After, the show I was invited to be on the pictures
with all famous fanciers, I refused for security reason, but Bill gived to me the camera to do the picture (including Scotty
Nelson, Robert Lemm, Pit Artist, Gambler and some other). Less than a year later the picture I take for Bill was used on the
court. What a lesson .....
Another funny thing about Crenshaw :
During one of my first trip in USA, I asked Garrett if we can go to Crenshaw's place. He managed a meeting and less than
a week later we goes to Crenshaw's place (they lived in the same city). We came in his place and Crenshaw received me that
way : he said "hello" to me, we visited his yard with Garrett, but he didn't said a single word to me during the visit. And,
the only thing he do was saying "bye bye" before living.
I remember myself saying to Garrett "what an asshole" and Garrett told me that I was too young with no experience and
I mean nothing for people like Crenshaw (I was around 19 or 20).
Years laters, after seeing Crenshaw (with Kelly of course) many time at pit side, even be the referee of few fights (another
gift from reputed dogmen), I was commissioned by some German guys to try to bought Ch "Gator". I asked Garrett again, if we
can go to Crenshaw's place (it was no less than 6 years later). This time the visit was a little more warmer than the other,
talking about dogs during the visit, but, when we were at his place (a kind of little "chalet") we talked about "Brandy",
the littermate sister of Gator I owned and he was a little pissed when I say that was not my kind of bitch, because he said
she was a good one. After that he asked me what was the last fight I see and I answered that it was a show in Tennessee involving
one of the poorest winner I ever see Pate's "Domino" for his second. He was really upset saying that "Domino" was an ace,
but I stayed on my position "he is a piece of shit". he say NO .... And told me that he sold that dog to Bradley Pate and
that I didn't know anything on good dog. He came more mad, insult me and we both stand up and we had to be separated by Garrett.
The last word he say to me on his porch "Now, even for a million dollars you will have this dog".
After that, I received another lesson from Garrett, who told me that many time Crenshaw lied about the quality of a dog,
but that I never had the right to go to that point to a guy in his own house. And he was 100% right ... Another lesson to
Now when I see whats happened in USA during the past decade and see that people goes in jail for that minor things, I
know the good old time is over. I was really blessed to meet some of the best dogmen of the world, be invited by them to see
few of the best fights of my life.
When you look at Patrick, Boudreaux, Hargrove and many more, you know it's to far ... Far away from what I've been a
I was really lucky to be take under the wing of few true gentlemen , especially Garrett, Hoffman and Hargrove.
I'm vey sad to know that Hargrove, a guy who always helped me to have and produce the best was put in jail at his age.
Last time I write to him in his Correctionnal, I found between the line an old broken man, who didn't deserve that sentence.
Harry was more than a gentleman and my best souvenir was doing his interview for Fat Bill magazine back in 2000, just
after the Championship of "Gus". We drove back from Florida straight to NC with that good feeling of victory.
I will mail you some pictures of my dogs and stories about them during the next weeks. But after been busted 3 times
in France, I didn't have many pictures left. But, recently Robert Hoffman send me some of the pictures we take when I invite
him for their 20th years of mariage back in 98 in Paris.
