WICANI MAGNUM OPUS
'Magnum' is a dog that dreams are made of, he is big, he is majestic, he is bomb proof. In this photo he was very young, and he has matured into a dog we continue to be extremely proud of. However in spite of having lots of photos showing him fully mature, this photo remains a favourite of mine, so I have used it here.
Last year we took him to his very first (and only) show under world renouned expert Frank Kane where he placed second in a strong limit dog clas, not bad for a dog that had never stepped foot inside a dog show ring before and was relatively untrained. However Magnum is one of those dogs who takes every life throws at him in his stride, and he loved the whole experience!
Magnum is a proven sire. He is cea clear (dna tested carrier) he is also free of DM and PRA. However only bitches that have been dna tested mdr1 +/+ can be mated to him, as he himself is -/-
We hope to enjoy some of his puppies (the first to be born in our own kennel) next year (2018) the chosen 'wife' being Wicani True T' the Mistress who is cea non carrier, mdr1 +/+ and free of dm and pra...so if you are interested in this special litter please mention it by email, it is advisable to book early.
'Arthur' is another young male who is already proving to be a very worthy 'keeper' for our select kennel. Arthur is 2 years of age at the time of this photo.
Arthur is a cea non carrier meaning every one of his puppies will be born unaffected by cea. He is one of an extremely small minority in this respect. He is also mdr1 +/+ (the best) dm free and pra free. He will be hip scored later this year. His sire is Van-M Music Man at Wicani and his beautiful 'mum' is Wicani Flawless Diamond (daughter of our top sire of the past, Wicani Waltz of the New Moon 'Neon' )
Arthur already has puppies on the ground (not in our own kennel) and is an incredibly efficient stud dog!
We have several young males waiting in the wings, and when photos are available we shall add them to this page.
Simon is a non carrier of cea, he will never produce an affected puppy. He is also mdr1 +/+, pra free and dm free. Simon is an extremely elegant young male and reminds us of a dog from the past we loved named Vonarkle Lyonhart.
