Abby has taken us a whirlwind ride! She has been the perfect show dog. It’s much harder to earn a Championship title on female, but Abby didn’t know that. She hit the show ring and gaited her way around with the best of the best. She finished up her Championship going Best of Breed with a 5 point major!! Watching Abby gait around the ring can bring goosebumps to your arms; she is just breath-taking.
Best of all she has a rock solid sweet, sweet temperament and the health clearances to go with it. She has OFA Excellent hips, normal elbows, and is DNA-tested clear of degenerative myelopathy.
She was bred by Linda Delarso and Frank DeBem, and owned and loved by myself, Kaitlyn Hollinger, and Linda Delarso. Her parents are Lyndel-Melana Something to Talk About and the outstanding Grand Champion Kysarah’s Ashkin for Trouble, who’s known to the fancy as “Talka”
My ball playing pal: Kit!
Kit is a West German/American cross that hales from the Bellevue Kennel in California. One of the smartest dogs I’ve ever known. She’s so willing and easy to train, and she’s never met a ball she didn’t love! She’s DNA clear for degenerative myelopathy, good hips and normal elbows, all wrapped up in a pretty little sable package! Her AKC registered name is Vixen because she looked so much like a red fox as a puppy. She carries those ever-so-desirable silver sable genes though thru her sire: Silver Raye’s Falco who now resides in France!
Enjoy Kit’s pictures and a few of her Silver Sable babies as well.
Meet Whisper! One of our Riker daughters, she has the same sweet disposition as her daddy. Her mom is one of our Juna daughters, bred to a Canadian Champion. She has OFA good hips and normal elbows, and is DNA clear for degenerative myelopathy.
Interestingly, Whisper looks like one of our old East German dogs from which she descends. The East German dogs were truly a treasure and now they are lost to history, but they were known for their physical soundness, devotion to their owners, and trainability. This sure fits our Whisper!
Whisper is my agility dog. Sure-footed, smart, and totally focused on me while we are working. I can’t wait to see what her babies accomplish!
