Westchester Kennel Club, 1969: Marcia Foy’s famous 15-inch Beagle Ch. King’s Creek Triple Threat notches one of his 84 career Hound Group wins under judge Anna Katherine Nicholas, handled by Tom Foy. “Trippe” was bred by Michele Leathers Billings.

“Trippe’s total show record, including hundreds of honors all gained in the keenest Eastern competition, has never been equaled by any other breed member. Additionally, he was a superb stud dog, having sired more than 70 champions to date. It is especially noteworthy that this dog achieved a fantastic show record with absolutely no advertising, and [it is] a tribute to his quality that it was never necessary.”  —Anna Katherine Nicholas, Successful Dog Show Exhibiting, 1981
