We were happy to close 2015 as our 4th consecutive year in a row with either the #1 or #2 Bitch in the US in Breed/Show Ranking.
2012 – #1 Bitch in the US – Bronze Grand Champion Urszula z Orisku.
2013 – #2 Bitch in the US – Bronze Grand Champion Urszula z Orisku. After having puppies and only 90 days of showing, right back in shape and winning.
2014 – #1 Bitch in the US – Silver Grand Champion Heartstrings Jasmine.
2015 – #1 Bitch in the US – Silver Grand Champion Heartstrings Jasmine.
Without question – the boys are impressive. But 50% of the future is behind the Bitch. Some would even say as high as 74%. We ignore “popular sire syndrome” – instead focusing on the ground, the foundation, the roots, the Bitch.
When we look back at generational pedigrees and are making breeding decisions – we pay at least, if not more, attention to the “bottom” of the pedigree; the Bitches back up the history. Their health, their type, their temperament the short list.
For some “Bitch” is a tough word to say. It takes some time and practice to let it roll off your tongue. Much less, consider the term or someone saying: “Wow – that is a GREAT BITCH” a extraordinary compliment and badge of honor.
Well done to our beautiful Bitches, well done!
