Who's Showing Now?
Camami One Wish
Jeannie received her first AKC point in January 2016 by going Best of Breed.
Wyndeway's Victory In Deep Purple O'Canami
Victor was the Best Puppy in Sweeps and Best Puppy in Breed at the CNYSSC Specialty Match in 2917. We went on to receive some very nice placements in AKC Breed shows.
Sugar Hill Masetto Leather N' Lace
Nikki has received Best of Breed, Best of Opposite, three Major Reserves
(one under Tom Coen) and a few reserves.
She took time off in 2017 for a litter with Sugar Hill Storm Watch "Radar" and has a hopeful from that litter.
You can see more of Nikki on her own page.
While we do understand that it takes both the Sire and the Dam to make a litter and both contribute to the puppy's characteristics, here are things we have noted to be consistent through all the litters
Soft almond shaped eyes
Nice head sculpture
Nice full bone
Nice ear set and natural tip
No litter is perfect. I believe in full disclosure when it comes to breeding. There has been a variety of sizes in each litter. Some going over sized and some going under sized. Ironically so far the litters that have been singletons are all looking like show promising puppies. We do understand that the size of the litter is solely determined by how many eggs the bitch releases at the time of breeding. The above list is purely an observation.
There has been two puppies (one in two separate litters) with a PDA heart condition. Although both the Sire (Grant) and the bitches are in perfect health the combinations of genes may contribute to this. There is no medical proof or testing that cane be done as yet as to wither your bitch and Grant as a breeding pair will produce this condition. There is no medical proof that PDA is genetic. Studies currently prove this is a development of the embryo in the womb and not the parents cause or environmental condition such as diet. PDA is caught very early in a puppy's life (during their first puppy vet check) can be surgically corrected and they live long normal active lives. A much more common stage 1 heart murmur has been reported which is very common among puppies of all breeds and are usually outgrown as the puppy grown older. There are no health risks to the development of the puppy or affects to their lifestyle.
In 2017 there was a 1 1/2 year old male that was diagnosed with epilepsy. This is a condition that can be treated with a single medication taken three times a day and he lives a very normal happy life as reported by his family. Little is known about how an animal aquires this condition and many factors are involved. There is no medical pre-screening for this at this time.
