ROBERT F. MALONEY
ROBERT F. MALONEY – This Pittsburgh sportsman owned the American bred Ch. Governor Moscow, first pointer to win Best In Show at Westminster 1925. He also imported some of England and Scotland’s finest pointers during the 1920’s, thereby establishing the foundation for one of the greatest bloodlines in pointer history, “Herewithem”. Some imports included Lingley Moor (renamed Ch. Lansdowne Prairie Queen), Ch. Stylish Mac (Scotland’s great sire, an excellent grouse dog and the sire of Ch. Herewithem J.P. who was the winner of 18 consecutive Best In Shows!), Eng. Ch. Felicity Of Ardagh (dam of Ch. Herewithem Moscow’s Olga, Ch. Herewithem Moscow’s Memories, and Ch. Herewithem Moscow), Ch. Ferndale Fay (a sensation in England in 1926), Stylish Ivy (sired by Ch. Stylish Mac in Scotland), etc. Every pointer that carried the Herewithem prefix was required to demonstrate good shooting dog abilities. After WWII, Bob Maloney returned the favor to his friends in England and Scotland by exporting Herewithem stock as gifts to help rebuild their kennels. The names of some of these dogs and bitches were Herewithem Moscow’s Spirit, full British Champion Herewithem Royal Flush “Yank” (sire of Eng. Ch. Chiming Bells, Best In Show at Crufts 1958), Ch. Herewithem General Mac (Gaines Best Sporting Dog of 1945), Herewithem Widow Moon and Ch. Herewithem Old Glory (littermate to Gen. Mac). Their names are still carried back to the US in the bloodlines of English imports today.
