JANELLA B. (MRS FLOYD B.) EVANS
JANELLA B. (MRS FLOYD B.) EVANS – (1906 – 1995) Mrs. Evans was a powerful name in the Pointer world in the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s. She bred, owned and imported some of the top winning and producing pointers of that era. The most noteworthy was Ch. Crookrise Danny Of Muick with multiple Best In Shows, Group 1 at Westminster 1964 and Top Sporting Dog in 1964. His picture is still used in the AKC’s “The Complete Dog Book” as the standard Pointer. Other notable BIS pointers Janella owned and exhibited were Ch. Crookrise Breeze and Ch. Richland’s Herewith Startler II, all handled by Harry Sangster and his assistant, Corky Vroom. Her “Tyler’s Showfield” home breds were equally impressive, Ch. Tyler’s Showfield Sugar whelped in 1956 won many Best In Shows and lived to the age of 18 years! Ch. Tyler’s Showfield Aubrey (a “Breeze” son) is the sire on which the Humble Acre line was founded, and the impact of which can be seen today in any line that carries Sydmar or HOF “Deputy”. He is also the sire of Connie Taylor’s foundation bitch, Ch. Point Blank Sundial Of Lor. Another of Janella’s pointers deserving mention is Ch. Crookrise Link, who can be traced through the kennel of Cumbrian. Link’s son, Ch. Crookrise Enoch was the sire of 66 champions. Mrs. Evans was one of the founding members of the Pointer Club Of Southern California with the first meeting being held at her home in Pasadena in 1969. She was an APC member for many years.
