IMPERIOS KENNEL’S CH LA DENTISTA
IMPERIOS KENNEL’S CH LA DENTISTA
I took a first peek at her when she was about 14 months old. she started out as a little better than average in most areas, but i was always impressed with how smart she was and how great she moved around the pit. As schooling progressed she continued to improve very rapidly, her mouth went from average to some serious 9 or 10 and she began to develop crazy finishing traits. it got to a point where she would disable you pretty quick and then finish you on the throat. she did this every time and every time it was better and better and deadlier and deadlier. What made her so good weren’t only the traits I have already mentioned, but the fact that she was so smart. She never wasted energy, she would study you for the first few minutes, control you, punish you and then finish you. When I say control you, I don’t mean the ear, she loved the face to do the punishment. She would grab you in the nose, around the eyes or right in your mouth and would take every teeth in your face (hence the name Dentista). Once the punishment was done and she felt ready, she would move to her spot, the throat, and it was game over. She ended four this way and several more during schooling. She was about 20 months old when I was done with schooling, I knew I had one special bulldog and wanted to accomplish an almost impossible feat. I wanted to do what very few dogmen have done. Campaign her into 5 different countries and only into winners.
I made the phone call that started everything. I called my good friend and partner, A from the A-Team. I told him I had a 42lbs female ready and to get her hooked for me. It just so happened that at the time of the phone call an International Convention was being put together. Several of the top dogmen from around the world were planning to attend. I told A that this was the perfect scenario for my goals, to get to work and get her hooked but only into a winner. A few days later A. calls me to give me the good news, thatwe were hooked into Lara Kennels and that they had a very good 1XW. Forfeits were placed and we were hooked. I was to travel seven hours to a 14 card International Convention with some of the best dogmen from Europe, USA, The Islands, PR, DR and SA. Both my opponent and I were right on weight at the scale. Sury was the man in the middle. Bitches at 42lbs. Lara released early and got right on my chest. He released as he was stepping inside the pit and caught me off guard. La Dentista working the face from the bottom, this went on for about 5 minutes, La Dentista on the face doing great damage. It was all La Dentista from this point forward, pushing and punishing the face. Opponent with bleeders all over her face and getting weaker. La Dentista moving to the throat for the finish. At 18 it was all over. La Dentista 1XW in 18 minutes.
We were home and ready to continue campaign. I heard through my contacts that there was a great 1XW that had done her first in quick fashion and was being hyped as a killer. I got on the phone and called the OR-Jack Kennels. We agreed to terms and got hooked. After several problems with this camp they finally made it to the show site. At the scales they were 2lbs over the contracted weight, which by this time I wasn’t really surprised. I won’t waste my time talking about this worthless camp, so to make the story short I’ll just say that I accepted to go forward with the 2lb disadvantage. This was La Dentista’s longest match. We had to push 2lbs and the size difference was very noticeable in all areas. David from Revolution was the man in the middle. Things were pretty even through the first 30 min with La Dentista having to do most of the work, she tried hard to stay in the face, slowly she began to get in the mouth and punishhard but OR-Jack’s bitch was too big and the size difference took its toll. By the 40 min mark La Dentista started to get ahead, finding her spot and working the throat hard, but the size difference kept OR-Jack’s bitch alive and going. By the 50 min it was all La Dentista, punishing the face and mouth and trying to get deep in her spot. It was all downhill for OR-Jack by that point. La Dentista on the throat killing and OR-Jack with no chance. At 1:10 min La Dentista with another finish to her record, making her La Dentista 2XW. By this time La Dentista had made some noise around the world and they wanted to stop me short. I made her weight open once again and got the challenge from Elite Gamedogs Kennels, they had just imported a 2XW from the USA for this special occasion. I got together with this crew and agreed to terms, FF’s were place and the match was on. This 2XW was tailored to stop La Dentista from making champion. This was an incentive to me and perfect for my goals. I would like to say that Elite Gamedogs is a very good crew, with honor and character. It was a pleasure going into this camp. Our negotiations went smooth and with much respect throughout. These guys are a true gentlemen’s camp and have my recommendation. At the scales both bitches right on weight at 42lbs. Elite’s bitch in real good shape. A white with brown patches bitch that was built like a male and had won 2 in short order. Revo the man in the middle. La Dentista on the face from the release, punishing hard around the eyes, Elite’s pushing forward but La Dentista with a deep face hold. By 15 min La Dentista had inflicted too much damage in the face and mouth area, Elite fading down. By the 20 min mark La Dentista on the throat killing a down dog, Elite pick up at 24 min to save a game bitch. We were awarded the BIS in this convention and making CH La Dentista 3XW 1XBIS.
By this point we had accomplished what very few dogmen has. CH La Dentista’s campaign was impeccable; all 3 opponents were winners and we did it while traveling to other countries, plus earning a BIS. CH La Dentista had begun to feel the exertion of 3 consecutive matches and being put through five keeps back to back. I was hooked twice before her first match but both times we ran into mutual problems and could not go forward. Fice keeps plus three shows with high caliber animals will take a toll. She had a broken knee cap (right back leg) that would go out of place and would make her limp. We still found ways to put her through a keep regardless of injury. I made some phone calls looking for a winning bitch that came from a good camp. I finally got the call I was waiting for. After some negotiations I got hooked into El Doc of S.I. Kennels and D’Crijal Kennels. I was doing 2 dogs into this combined. Males at 46lbs and females at 42lbs. The Mexican male was a champion and the female a 2XW. I will leave the story of the male for another time, but I will say that I also won into this champion. Both bitches right on weight at 42lbs. The man in the middle was Atila from EGDK. Bitches meet in the middle at release, the Mexican bitch very smart working the ear and keeping CH La Dentista away. It took us only a few minutes to figure her out, La Dentista in the face and jaw, punishing hard inside the mouth. La Dentista controlling and punishing, at around 10 min La Dentista on the throat pushing down, the Mexican bitch attempts to jump the pit but was brought back by La Dentista, by this time La Dentista on a stretched out bitch and working the throat real deep, RIP by 15 min. This International Show made CH La Dentistaa 4XW 1XBIS. This was also her shortest match at only 15 minutes. So far we have done the impossible. All International Conventions, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, USA, Mexico
and all into winners, an impeccable campaign.
This was it, I was eager to finish her campaign, I didn’t want to waste any more time, but at the same token I wanted to only go into the best for number 5. At this point I knew I had to travel again. I didn’t want to cut any corners. I wanted to finish up her campaign like no other. I didn’t want to take the easy route, do her locally and win GR CH. That was never my goal nor would I ever do that. I love the challenge, love the almost impossible. If I win I win big, if I lose I lose with honor. That was the goal from the start and I wasn’t going to change that no matter what. So I waited. After a few weeks I finally got the word I was waiting for. A huge and very important International Convention was brewing in the South. So I said to myself, this is it, this is perfect.
I contacted the organizer and gave him my weights. A few weeks went by with no takers. It was beginning to look like no one would take her weight. Then one day Chico contacted me, negotiations were quick and smooth. Things are simple when you are dealing with men of honor and character. We were hooked, hooked for the biggest and most important convention ever put together, The World Finals. We were the last match of the show and this was the most awaited match of the convention. Both females right on weight at the scales, 42lbs. Chico using CH Siega BIS. Siega, a red bitch in great shape. This bitch was solid, hard as a rock, shorter than CH Dentista but stronger than any dog (male or female) I seen, literally. Mr. Tarraco the man in the middle. Both bitches meet in the middle with a loud thud. CH Siega on Dentista’s chest and pushing forward with unbelievable power, La Dentista trying to weather the storm working the face, several minutes go by until finally La Dentista gets free and begins to work the face harder than she ever has before. She goes deep in the face causing great damage, bleeders popping all over Siega’s face. La Dentista still controlling and punishing hard but Ch Siega was too strong, Siega kept pushing forward with unbelievable power. Siega gets free and pushes La Dentista down and goes deep in her chest, you could hear bones crushing, Siega’s mouth was a 10. She continues to work the chest to a down Dentista. La Dentista trying to get free working the face and mouth, teeth breaking lose and flying out from both animals,La Dentista sporadically was able to control de face but Siega’s power and strength proved to be too much. Siega keeps working the chest and shoulders. La Dentista with no front end. Siega’s damage to the face was extreme, one eye left on her face but continues with relentless power. La Dentista almost dead by 30 minutes. Her chest was totally destroyed and broken, Siega deep in the chest to Dentista’s heart. A handle is made at 32 minutes, La Dentista to scratch. La Dentista in the corner unable to stand, I revived her long enough for her to make eye contact. She comes out tumbling down, chest on the carpet and straight through to make contact and take a bite. You had to be there to appreciate the meaning of gameness!
Siega back in the chest at 35 and I pick up an almost dead La Dentista. I asked for a courtesy scratch which was conceded. La Dentista in the corner with no life left, I again worked on her to bring her back, and she does what no one could believe, completed a dead game scratch. La Dentista lost, but in reality I won so much more. She proved not only to be a beast in the pit but a real dead game bulldog. She was unanimously voted and awarded the GIS trophy (out of 14 matches) and received a standing ovation from the most respected dogmen around the world.
What more can I ask from an animal of such caliber. I don’t regret anything I did. She had an unbelievable campaign, we competed against the best in the world. We went into Dominican Republic, Ecuador, USA, Mexico and Brazil. She started out at 22 months old and was done before she was 4 years old. No dog ever scratched back to her but CH Siega. We accomplished all this in less than 2 years. An animal of this caliber deserved no less. I know in my heart that if she had a choice I’m sure she would chose to go out exactly as she did, proving to the world what an amazing animal she was. I would like to thank Chico. We were opponents for only 35 minutes but we will stay friends always. He outdid himself trying to help me save La Dentista. He proved to be an excellent host and better friend. I would also like to mention and thank my wife Julia. Without her nothing would be possible. She is my everything and the real back bone of Imperios Kennels. Julia is the real deal, a true dog woman in every sense of the word. CH Imperios Kennel’s La Dentista 4XW-1XLDG (1XBIS-1XGIS) I will never forget you baby. You are deeply engraved in
our hearts. You taught me courage and selfishness. I will see you again someday my baby girl.
