Geistvoll Yesterday's Dream goes by the name of YD Snowshoes.
She came to us in March 1997 and has been terrorizing the house ever since.
She loves the snow so hence the addition of "snowshoes" onto her name.
Her show career began in the Spring of 1998. In October 1998 YD
became an American Kennel Club (AKC) champion! She walked all over the competition with her
snowshoes. At the Standard Schnauzer National Specialty - July 1999 in Ventura CA, YD made the
first cut in the Best of Breed competition. YD was out as a special in 2000 and has some very prestigious Best of Breed and Best of Opposite wins to boost about! She was ranked #8 in the SSCA Standard Schnauzer of the Year competition (#4 bitch) for 2000!! At the Standard Schnauzer National Specialty -
September 2001 in St. Louis MO, YD again made the first cut in the Best of Breed competition.
In August 2000 YD traveled to Canada for shows and took Reserve Winners Bitch at the Canadian National Specialty. In October 2000 she went back to Canada to complete her Canadian championship. While at the prestigious Lower Mainland Dog Fanciers of BC shows YD was Best of Breed at the Peace Arch Working & Herding Association Specialty!
