Really behind on my updates. Ticker now has 23 champions! Helen Lee's boy Eli became Ch Wistwin Morningstar Allied Hearts yesterday, all owner handled. And Ch Solange Suggestive finished her championship earlier this year, to be #22.
Wistwin Violet Hill has been doing wonderful winning this spring, and as of yesterday she has 11 points both majors.
Ch Wistwin Lucky In Love's first litter, out of our Somerhaven Picture Perfect, was a hit with 7 beautiful puppies. 2 are in show homes, 2 staying here, 1 in agility home, and 1 in performance/possible show home depending on size. Thrilling litter...my two are Wistwin Face First (Mackenzie) and Wistwin Mad About Saffron.
There have been a lot of great agility achievements in the Wistwin dog family, and I will need to get caught up on posting those very soon!
It is with heavy heart that I announced that Ticker passed away at the age of 11 1/2 years old. He was a once in a lifetime dog, whose beauty and spirit made him known across the USA and even into other countries. There will never be another quite like him...but some comfort comes to me in seeing his beautiful descendents who resemble him and have his irrepressible joy for life.
February 6, 2016:
Happy that Wistwin Cerise has her pretty litter of 6 (3 m, 3 f) by Ch Wistwin Just Whistle. One boy is my favorite at birth..beautiful head and expression.
Thrilled to report that two more Ticker kids finished this month- Ch Caprock's Dispensing Sweetness and Ch Caprock's Sugar Daddy. That makes 21 champions for Ticker!
I am really behind on updating my website! It has been a nice year...Ticker has 4 new champions this year: Ch Shalamar Wistwin Scrumptious, Ch Wistwin Lucky In Love, Ch Solange Shalamar Innovation, and Ch Ireland's Heart of Paradise. My two girls from GCh Wistwin Tickertape ROM began their show careers this year, and both have three points so far. Lucky and Demi both placed in their class at the National in April, and my little Ticker daughter Wistwin Another Lil Piece O My Heart (Jannie) won the ASSA Futurity 6-9 Puppy Bitch class.
On a sadder note, Ch Wistwin-Primo Arctic passed away here at the age of almost 13. He was a real classic, and the very sweetest of fellows.
RWB yesterday, and then first 2 points today, for Wistwin Camera Ready in Nevada! Cami was shown by her coowner Doug Parry.
This month, Wistwin Porcelain Doll won Best in Sweeps at the Central Ohio SSA. Congrats to Chyna and her coowner/handler Therese Walters!

The good news is that Innovation now has 12 pts 1 major; and that Ch Wistwin Rejoice has 6 puppies born 12/13/14 by Ch Karosel Sunset In The Money. The bad news is that I am having to hand raise the puppies.
Ticker kids are doing well..Palmer now has 4 points, and so does Solange Shalamar Innovation (Ticker ex Signi) who belongs to Suzi Beacham and coowner/breeder Linda Nicholas..
An exciting day...Wistwin America's Sweetheart (Shirley) was WB for a major today..she is owned by D'Anne Sherbrooke, and is a Johnny daughter out of Wistwin Bless Her Heart.... and Wistwin Morningstar Allied Hearts was WD from the puppy class for his first two points.

Congratulations to the Dorwards!
Another Best of Breed today for Susie, and another major toward the Grand Ch. She now has 14 points, 3 majors, and all the required wins over another special, so it is just points needed from now on.

Here at home it has been relatively quiet..enjoying the blue/tri litter by GCh Rosmoor Protocol out of Wistwin Shalamar Shameless. Pick girl will be staying here...and named Wistwin Diadem.
Time has flown...Shalamar Wistwin Scrumptious now has 10 pts, both majors with THREE specialty WB (judges Patricia Skinner, Gayle Eads and Jo Virden) and Ch Wistwin Shalamar Ricochet has probably 4 majors toward his Grand..have lost track and must look it up!
Exciting news from Suzi Beacham: Shalamar Wistwin Scrumptious won both Sweepstakes at the 2 specialties in Spokane, WA and also was Winners Bitch for a 5 pt major at the specialty on Sunday!
Sophie is by Ticker out of his granddaughter Wistwin Cerise, was bred by me and is owned by Suzi Beacham. And at the same specialty, Ch Wistwin Shalamar Ricochet was Select Dog for his second major toward his Grand Championship. Congrats to Suzi and to Lyn Leininger, his coowners.

Am thrilled to summarize Wistwin Tickertape's Memorial Day weekend: She was Winners Bitch 3 of the 4 shows (and RWB at the other) to pick up a 4-pt and 3 pt major, as well as 2 minor points. She now has 11 points, both majors in only 1 month of showing. Huge thanks to Julie Desy for presenting her so beautifully!
Exciting news from Nancy Bullat (Accent) - She took Quinn (Wistwin Equinox) to his first 2 shows after the National, and he was Best of Breed at both, and then GROUP 3 at the second one! We are thrilled as he is only 8 months old, and these wins were owner-handled!
Our Fair-Whistler boy, Wistwin Whistlestop, goes to his new show home today, with Susan Hays in Virginia.

Dan Dee Contessa has three new babies by Whistler..2 m and 1 f. We are thrilled! When she is done with her mommy duties, and has her new clothes, she will be back in the ring looking for those last points to finish.
