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 Bests In Show, 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 Jennella owned and exhibited were Ch. Crookrise Breeze and Ch. Richland’s Herewith Startler II, all handled by Harry Sangster and his assistant, Corky Vroom. The “Tyler’s Showfield” pointers were equally impressive. Bred by niece Wendy Tyler, Ch. Tyler’s Showfield Sugar was whelped in 1956 and won many BIS and was twice BOB at Westminster (1961 & 63) for Jennella. Sugar lived to be 18 years of age! 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 “Deputy”. He is also the sire of Connie Taylor’s foundation bitch, Ch. Point Blank Sundial Of Lor. Another of Jennella’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 63 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.
