Bit O Luck and Shal Mar produced quality Manchesters for well over twenty years - their winning records throughout those many years were a true testament of their breeding not just beautiful manchesters but correct manchesters. With their blessings, I was ever so pleased to have been able to bring their two lines together with this breeding.
Capri was out of our April 2006 litter (note sire and dam listed above). She came from what we call an 'outcross' breeding, meaning neither the sire nor dam share common ancestory in their pedigree. It is not too common for breeders to do an outcross but due to the quality of her sire and dam and the quality lines they are from, we knew we had to do it and I was more than pleased with the litter this mating produced!
Capri had a beautiful long, clean wedge shaped headpiece - as called for in the AKC Standard of Perfection. Although she had a bit rounder eye than preferred, her alert keen expression added to her beauty, as well as, her personality. She was on the small side for a standard bitch but Capri was a lot of dog in a 'little' package.
Her second weekend out, Capri takes Reserve Winner's Bitch to a major on day three of this cluster weekend (Des Moines and Cyclone Country Kennel Club shows) held in Des Moines, Iowa September 8-10, 2007. (Entry Saturday/Sunday - District 5 Specialty and Supported Entry Shows - 1-6-0-0. Entry Monday - 1-5-1-0). A GREAT time with GREAT Competition!
