    Hall's Gr Ch Andy Capp ROM

    THE YEAR WAS 1971, ENRIQUE MORFIN OF MEXICO WAS SON TO MAKE A HUGE IMPRINT ON THE HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN PIT BULL TERRIER WHEN HE MATCHED A DOG COMING FROM THE KNOWNED KENNELS OF MAURICE CARVER. THE DOG'S NAME WAS CARVER'S ANDY CAPP AND WAS SIRED BY JEROME HERNANDEZ (KLAUS) FAMOUS ZEKE DOG, A HARD MOUTH MUZZLE FIGHTER AND A REPUTED WINNER OF FIVE CONTRACT MATCHED, MOSTLY REMEMBERED FOR HIS VICTORY OVER LEO KINARD'S BOE. ALTHOUGH CARVER'S ANDY CAPP LOST THE MATCH HE WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY AS ONE OF THE GAMEST ANIMALS TO EVER WALK THE EARTH, SCRATCHING 36 TIMES TO HIS DEATH. TIS DOG WAS OUT OF CARVER'S (KOEHLER'S) GOLDY AND WAS PART OF THE FAMOUSE LITTER COMPRISED OF INDIAN SONNY'S BOLIO, CARVER'S MEDECINO AND KOEHLER'S DAISY. BUFFALO BILL & GEORGE'S ANDY CAPP -VS- HOOTERVILLE'S FESTUS
    MALES: 38 LBS JUDGE: CODY

    BUFFALO BILL & GEORGE WOULD TRAVEL, ACCOMPANIED BY A YOUNG DOG GOING BY THE NAME OF ANDY CAPP, TO MEET THE HOOTERVILLE CAMP AND FESTUS, LITERALLY IN THERE OWN BACKYARD. THI WAS A MATCH THAT WOULD BRING OUT SOME OF THE BEST DOGMEN IN THE SOUTH, A HIGHLY ANTICIPATED CONTEST BETWEEN TWO OUTSTANDING DOGS THAT SURPASSED VERY HIGH EXPECTATIONS.

    HOOTERVILLE'S FESTUS, A HEAVILY MASKED BUCKSKIN, WAS A TWO TIME WINNER WHO WON BOTH OF HIS MATCHES A THIRTY EIGHT POUNDS, HIS TWO VICTIMS WERE MAD MAX'S CH BEAUDACIOUS WHO HE DID AWAY WITH IN 24 MINUTES AND MUTCH'S COCHISE WHO HUNG IT UP IN 20 MINUTES, BOTH OF THESE DOGS WERE SIRED BY BOYLE'S CH BOLT ACTION ROM. FESTUS, LINE BRED ON HAND'S CH HAPPY JACK, WAS CAMPAIGNED AT THAT TIME AS BEING THE BEST THRITY EIGHT POUNDER IN THE SOUTH. THIS STANDS TO REASON WHY WE INHEITED THE TITLE OF A FOOL AND HIS MONEY GOING INTO THE MATCH. ANDY CAPP, A RED BLAZED HEADED DOG BRED BY P. SINGLETARY AND R BOYLES, IS THE END RESULTS OF A PATRICK AND BOYLES CROSS, ARGUABLE TWO OF THE MOST COMPETITIVE BLOODLINES IN THE WORLD.

    AT THE WEIGH IN, I NEARLY FAINTED AS THE ANDY CAPP DOG WEIGHED IN AT 35 AND 3/4 OF A POUND. WHILE FESTUS WEIGHED IN AT THIRTY EIGHT POUNDS ON THE NOSE. THE ODDS HAD CHANGED TREMENDOUSLY AS THE EDGE CLEARLY NOW BELONGED TO THE HOOTERVILLE CAMP, THEIR DOG BEING A THREE AND A HALF YEAR OLD SEASONED PITDOG WHILE ORS A FIRST TIME OUT 22 MONTH OLD PROSPECT WEIGHING MORE THAN TWO POUNDS UNDER WEIGHT. ADMITTEDLY BECAUSE OF OUR SITUATION I SILENTLY BEGAN TO LOOSE CONFIDENCE IN OUR BEING VICTORIOUS. ALTHOUGH OUR DOG CARRIED A HEAVY MOUTH OF HIS OWN, IT STILL SEMED LUDICROUS TO GIVE UP THAT MUCH WEIGHT TO A DOG LIKE FESTUS AND EXPECT TO WIN. IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE GENERAL CONSENSUS THAT A GOOD BIG DOG COULD WHIP A GOD LITTLE DOG ANY DAY OF THE WEEK.

    OF COURSE IT SEEMED THE LOGICAL THING TO DO AT THIS POINT WAS TO PAY THE FORFEIT AND LEAVE, SURELY THERE COULD BE NO SHAME IN DOING THIS. HOWEVER, THE TEMPTATION OF WHIPPING A DOG OF "FESTUS MAGNITUDE CONSTANTLY TOILED WITH MY MIND, SNOWBALLING INTO SCARY THRILL, ALMOST A SICKNESS.

    LOSING MY ABILITY TO REASON I FINALLY CONDFIDED WITH MY PARTNER AND HINTED AROUND TO SEE IF WE WERE ON THE SAME WAVE LINK BUT IT WAS OBVIOUS THAT HE HAD NO INTENTION OF FORFEITING THE MATCH AND JUDGING BY HIS ATTITUDE THOUGH MUST TO HAVE NEVER CROSSED HIS MIND. CALL IT BLIND FAITH, STUPIDITY OR EVEN EGO, BUT IT WAS AGAIN OBVIOUS THAT EVEN IN THE EARLY STAGES OF THIS ANIMAL'S CAREER MY PARTNER GEORGE SIMPLY DIDN'T BELIEVE THAT ANYTHING COULD COMPETE WITH ANDY CAPP DOG AND ON AT LEAST THIS PARTICULAR NIGHT HE WAS RIGHT.

    LAUGHS AND SNICKERS WERE HEARD AROUND THE PIT AS ANDY CAPP ENTERED FIRST, AN 800 TO 300 BET WAS YELLED OUT BY A MAN STANDING NEXT TO ME ON THE FESTUS DOG AS HE ENTERED THE PIT. WITH A SWEEPING MOTION, HOOTERVILLE RELEASED FESTUS AS A REFEREE YELLED RELEASE YOUR DOGS. FESTUS GOES RIGHT THROUGH ANDY CAPP'S DEFENSE QUICKLY SHOOTING UNDERNEATH HIM INTO THE REAR-END AS HIS MOMENTUM CARRIES A NOTICEABLE SMALLER ANDY CAPP BACK INTO THE CORNER. FESTUS IS PUSHING HARD DESPERATELY TRYING TO GET HIS ENTIRE MOUTH OVER A STIFLE, ONLY MANAGING HOWEVER TO GETTING PARTIALLY ON THE TARGET. FOR THE FIRST MINUTE BOTH DOGS ARE STILL IN THE CORNER, AND ARE ENGAGED IN A POWER STRUGGLE WITH ANDY CAPP IN A SITTING DOWN POSITION COMPLETELY BENT TO HIS RIGHT SIDE WITH HIS MOUTH GLUED TO THE MUZZLE OF FESTUS AS HE STILL ROOTS IN THE HARD TRYING TO GET A MOUTH FULL. WITH A SUDDEN WHINE, FESTUS COMES OUT OF THE STIFLE WITH THE ANDY CAPP DOG WORKING OUT A PUNISHING MUZZLE HOLD AS HE TALENTLY LEADE FESTUS AROUND THE FOUR WALLS DICTATING EVERY MOVE HE MAKES. AT THE 5 MINUTE MARK ANDY CAPP IS SEVERLY WORKING OVER THE MUZZLE AS FESTUS LETS OUT AN OCCASIONAL WHINE. SUDDENLY WITH FIERCENESS, ANDY CAPP SHAKES THE FESTUS DOG OFF HIS FEET AND APPEARS TO BE THE STRONGER OF THE 2 DOGS. AT THE 7 MINUTE MARK ANDY CAPP COMES OFF OF THE MUZZLE AND GOES HIGH IN THE RIGHT SHOULDER OF FESTUS AND AGAIN SHAKES HIM TO THE FLOOR WHERE HE WORKS THE FRONT END OVER. ANDY CAPP IS BEATING FESTUS TO THE HOLDS AND BURIES HIS HEAD AND SHOULDERS DEEP INTO THE BRISKET OF THE FESTUS DOG MAKING IT HARDER FOR HIM TO TAKE A LEGITIMATE HOLD. PERHAPS HE SENSES THAT FESTUS CAN HURT HIM. AT 10 THE BREEDER OF GR CH QUEEN OF HEARTS CALLS OUT A 100 DOLLAR BE ON ANDY CAPP AND NO ONE TAKES. AT THE 15 MINUTE MARK FESTUS' FRONT END APPEARS TO GE GONE BUT HE SOMEHOW FINDS THE STRENGTH TO WOBBLE BCK UP AND TRIES TO SUPPORT HIMSLEF ON UNSTEADY LEGS WITH THIS IN MIND HE GRABS ANDY CAPP GIGH IN THE SHOULDER BUT IS UNABLE TO WORK OUT HIS HOLD DUE TO THE CONSTANT FLOW OF BLOOD DRAINING INTO HIS NOSE, OF COURSE MAKING IT DIFFICULT FOR HIM TO BREATH AND THIS IS THE RESULT OF SEVERE MUZZLE DAMAGE INFLICTED EARLIER IN THE MATCH. ANDY CAPP SEEMS TO WELCOME FESTUS AGGRESSION AND RESPONDS BY SHOOTING IN HIGH AND DEEP IN THE SAME SHOULDER RIGHT BETWEEN THE ARM PIT OF FESTUS WHILE AT THE SAME TIME VICIOUSLY SHAKING HIM BACK TO THE FLOOR. THIS TIME ANDY CAPP SHOOTS INTO THE THROAT OF FESTUS DOG CLOCKWISE AROUND THE FLOOR IN A CONSTANT CIRCLE. AT 20 FESTUS IS STILL A DOWN DOG WHEN HE SUDDENLY REACHES UP AND GRABS ANDY CAPP BETWEEN THE YES AND CLOSES HIS MOUTH HARD LITERALLY BEITING DOWN TO THE BONE OF ANDY CAPP'S HEAD IS STARTING TO RESEMBLE THAT OF AN ENGLISH BULL TERRIER AS IT IMMEDIATELY BEGINS TO SWELL. THE FESTUS BACKERS START TO ROAR AS HE CONTINUES TO KEEP SECURE HIS HOLD, ANDY CAPP SUPRISINGLY STAYS CALM AND PATIENT WHILE HE TRIES TO FIGURE OUT AND ALTERNATIVE TO THIS AWKWARD POSITION. USING HIS FRONT PAWS ANDY CAPP CAUTIOSLY TRIES TO SCRATCH OFF A FESTUS WHO SEEMS TO BE MORE THAN WILLING TO DIE WITH HIS HOLD. AT 23 ANDY CAPP MANAGES TO GET FREE AND BEGINS TO PUNISH FESTUS SEVERELY, DOGS HAVE BEEN FIGHTING AT A TORRID PACE.

    AT 25 FESTUS IS FORCED INTO A TURN AND IS OUT OF HOLD AS ANDY CAPP TAKES HOLD ON THE SIDE OF THE HEAD WHILE BOTH DOGS TAKE A BREATHER. GEORGE IS TRYING TO ENCOURAGE ANDY CAPP BACK INTO THE THROAT WHEN RONALD, THE CO BREEDER OF ANDY CAPP JUMPS ALL OVER HIM AND REPLIES, "HEY GEORGE C'MERE, LET THAT DOG ALONE YE HEAR, HE CAN FIGHT A WHOLE LOT BETTER THAN YOU CAN, JUST LEAVE HIM BE." GEORGE OBLIGES. AT 27 A HANDLE IS MADE WITH FESTUS TO SCRATCH, AT THIS POINT I WAS CONVINCED THAT FESTUS NOT ONLY WOULD NOT SCRATCH BUT THAT EVEN IF HE WANTED TO HE COULDN'T. FACE YOUR DOGS SCREAMED THE REFEREE WITH THE BUCKSKIN TO SCRATCH, RELEASE YOUR DOG, THE HANDLER OF ANDY CAPP IS HOLDING HIM SNUG IN HIS CORNER AS FESTUS TAKES A STEP AND TUMBLES OVER ONTO HIS CHST NEVER TAKING HIS EYES OFF OF ANDY CAPP. USING HIS BACK LEGS, FESTUS RUGGEDLY BEGINS TO PROPEL HIS BODY ACROSS THE PIT GRADUALLY PICKING UP SPEED. THE CROWD YELLS AS FESTUS RAMS ANDY CAPP AND HIS HANDLER IN THEIR CORNER TO COMPLETE AN EXTREMELY GAME SCRATCH. AT 30 ANDY CAPP IS BACK ON THE OFFENSE AND HURTING FESTUS BADLY WITH THROAT HOLDS WHEN THE REFEREE YELLS AT A SPECTATOR, I BELIEVE HE IS THE OWNER OF A DOG NAMED CRAKER JACK, "GET YOUR d**n HAND OUT OF THERE." AS HE HAS HIS ARM IN THE PIT SNAPPING FINGERS WHILE AT THE SAME TIME MUMBLING WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT TO A BEATEN FESTUS, THE HANDLER OF ANDY CAPP RESPONDED BY REPLYING "THAT AIN'T GONNA HELP HIM NONE." AT 34 A HANDLE IS MADE WITH FESTUS TO A SCRATCH AND AT THE AMAZEMENT OF EVERYONE THERE HE AGAIN GOES THROUGH THE SAME ROUTINE AS BEFORE, HOWEVER THIS TIME ANDY CAPP MEETS HIM THREE QUARTERS OF THE WAY ACROSS RAMMING IN LIKE A FREIGHT TRAIN, FESTUS' BODY JUST CRUMPLES TO THE FLOOR. AT 40 FESTUS IS HELPLESS AS ANDY CAPP GOES BACK INTO THE THROAT AND BEGINS TO DRIVE HIM INTO A CORNER. A VOICE OR TWO YELLS FROM THE CROWD FOR HOOTERVILLE TO PICK UP FESTUS WHO IS OFFERING VERY LITTLE RESISTANCE AT THIS POINT. AT 43 THE HANDLER OF FESTUS BRIEFLY LOOSES HIS COMPOSURE AND IN A MILD PANIC YELLS TO THE OTHER HANDLER, "GET HIM OFF MAN", "GET HIM OFF NOW"C AS FESTUS' LIFELESS BODY GOES LIMP. THE REFEREE DECLARES ANDY CAPP THE WINNER AT 43. SECONDS LATER FESTUS' IS SOMEHOW REVIVED AND COMPLETES A DEAD GAME COURTESY SCRATCH.

    WHAT WAS SO FACINATING T ME ABOUT THIS MATCH WAS THE INTENSITY IN WHICH FESTUS SCRACH INTO ANDY CAPP, YOU COULD SEE IN HIS EYES THAT HE WAS NOT SCRATCHING OUT OF JUST MERE INSTINCT BUT WITH BAD INTENTIONS IN MIND. ALWAYS TRYING TO GET HIS MOUTH SOMEWHERE ON HIS ADVSORY AS IF BY SOME DERANGED MEANS IN HIS MIND HE SENSED THAT HE WAS WINNING, TRULY A DEAD GAME DOG. ALTHOUGH A GREAT PORTIONS OF THIS MATCH WOULD TEND TO MAKE THE READER BELIEVE THAT IT WAS ALL ANDY CAPP, I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT THIS WAS NOT THE CASE. GIVING CREDIT TO THE WINNER HOWEVER, I MUST SAY THAT ANDY CAPP DISPLAYED THE CHARACTERISTICS OF AN ACE TAKING FESTUS' STRENGTH AND TURNING IT AGAINST HIM WHILE AT THE SAME TIME EQUALLING THE HEART OF FESTUFS WITH THIS OWN SAVVY AND DETERMINATION.

    AFTER THE MATCH THE HOOTERVILLE CAMP TOOK SOME MILD CRITICISM FOR LEAVING THEIR DOG DOWN TO LONG. I BELIEVE THEY WERE COUNTING ON THE SMALLER ANDY CAPP EVENTUALLY BURNING HIMSELF UP OR PERHAPS THE MOUTH OF FESTUS GETTING HIM BACK INTO THE MATCH BUT WHAT EVER THE SCENARIO IT WAS NOT TO BE.

    THIS IS A MATCH THAT WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY AS A CLASSIC CONFRONTATION BETWEEN TWO HARD BITING DOGS, WITH ONE USING HIS TALENT AND TO OU FINESSE HIS OPPONENT AND OTHER BLATANTLY REFUSING TO CONCEDE OR FOLD UNDER LIFE THREATENING CIRCUMSTANCES, AND YET AT THE SAME TIME CONSTANTLY IN SEARCH OF AN ADVANTAGE.
