This year we entered two of our lovely girls for Crufts. Representing us was our 4 year old blue bitch Wicani White Lace'N Promises (Bridey) who last year won her stud book number by winning the Bitch CC with BOB and was short-listed in the Pastoral group at Paignton. Also representing us was her half sister who is almost 3 years old (she shares the same mother) Churchoak Temptress at Wicani (Jezebel) who made her show début in 2014 and in 4 shows managed to win 2 reserve CC. Both of these girls are dna tested for cea and are proven normal eyed. Thank you to everyone that sent us photographs and video of our two girls and Thank you to the many that spoke to us at the show, it is great to know we are not alone in our thoughts and ideals.
Wicani White Lace'N Promises...........standing above and moving below
We have so many reasons to love this wonderful girl, not least because she has such a warm welcoming and friendly nature. She has size and substance without losing femininity, she is not sugar box sweet...but what dog that is designed to herd sheep is? She has tremendous strength in her pasterns, front and rear, and moves exactly as a Rough should move, with grace and elegance, strength and fluidity, without any effort at all. She has length of body and neck without any sign of weakness. Plus, we happen to feel her head type is unmistakeably COLLIE...
Churchoak Temptress at Wicani
Jezebel was bred under a breeding terms agreement with Liz Walkley, this litter of four have all succeeded in the show ring. Brother Ch Churchoak Tattler is in Israel. Brother Churchoak Transcendence has won CAC from his home in Finland. Sister Churchoak truly with seryphina has won first prizes in the English show ring, and our own Jezebel has notched up 2 reserve CC with very limited opportunities.
Another girl that stands on very strong pasterns, front and rear and whose colour can light up a stormy night...'Little miss personality' she is a delight to own. For us showing is not all about winning, although winning is great, it is about comparing our dogs so we can stay on track with our ideals.
