CANADIAN REG #SJ091217  AKC PR103092/01   DNA# V483064        DOB: 5/13/06  



APRIL 2008:  "Sunny" once again flew clear across the country to join his new family.  He is logging more flight miles than many people.  "Sunny" is very happy in his new family and neighborhood, and is much missed by all of us, however since he went so oversize he could not be shown in AKC competition, which was Mishelle's dream it was best that he found a new family.  Mishelle has retained one of his sons from Tara who we all hope will stay in size and pass all of his testing in order to be added to her breeding program.  Watch for his son "Cody" in the show ring in 2008.

DEC 2007:  "Sunny" is Mishelle's new Canadian Import.  Unfortunately "Sunny" has gone oversize (17"), so will not be shown on the AKC show circuit as Mishelle had planned.  Mishelle plans to get two more litters from "Sunny", from Tara  (due January 1st, 2008) and Amy, and then place "Sunny" into a home.  "Sunny" is absolutely gorgeous and has a wonderful temperament and would do well in an active family environment.  "Sunny" is available for stud service to select females.  "Sunny" is tending to improve tail set, head, and rear angulation - some of his puppies are staying within size, some are going oversize.  His puppies tend to have his wonderful temperament.


"Sunny" was shown at 18 months at the Evergreen Autumn Sieger International Show in Enumclaw, WA in October 2007.  Following is a composite of his show critiques under Judges Mr. Don Dvorak - USA, Mr. Dana Plonkey - USA, and Mr. Charles Bett - Canada:
