Mr. Jingles acquired his unique name because of a series of events during the time we were considering names for him. My husband has always chosen call names, and I've chosen the registered names. The two do not always agree with one another. For some unknown reason, Bob (my husband) chose Mr. Jingles as his call name. Have no clue why, but he was watching The Green Mile a couple weeks before hand. LOL My answer to him regarding his choice, (and as a joke) was, what about Bob? Hence, Mr. Jingles acquired both call and registered name in one felled swoop.
So without further ado, here he is, the infamous Mr. Jingles...

Mr. Jingles had his first show in Shelton, Washington, at the Gig Harbor Kennel Club show. Though an exceptionally small show, and Mr. Jingles was terrified by all the sites and sounds, he did amazingly well.
SHOW #1 ~ On Saturday, September 22nd, Mr. Jingles took Winner's Dog and Best of Winners (over a pointed bitch), for 1 point under esteemed judge Loraine Boutwell. Mr. Jingles also was named Best Bred By Exhibitor this day!!!
SHOW #2 ~ And on Sunday, September 23rd, Mr. Jingles again took Winner's Dog and Best of Winner's (over a pointed bitch) for 1 point under the esteemed judge Lesley E. Hiltz.
