San Joaquin Honcho (Honcho) came into Judy’s hands when he was not quite two years of age. He was raised by John Folsom, who, at the time, was working with Rex Carr. Judy had known and liked the dog for some time and purchased him on Carr’s recommendation. At the time, Honcho had virtually no competitive experience, but Rex thought that in Judy’s hands he may have tremendous potential. His belief was well founded.
Both Judy and Rex recognized two things that convinced them that, as a team, they might be formidable. One, Honcho was a high-rolling dog, but with a degree of tractability and a love of work. Second, Judy loved to work; at one point training seven days a week, week-in and week-out. Together, Judy and Honcho were a well-oiled and effective team in the field.
Honcho accumulated 142 All-Age points during his competitive career, 74 Open and 68 Amateur.
