CH SAPPHIRES OVER COCO CHANEL, “COCO”

Another Group 2 in Bred-by-Exhibitor

Another Group 2 in Bred-by-Exhibitor

Coco, a Teka daughter out of her 1st litter of Shih Tzu puppies, has the most beautiful coloring. She is registered as a red & white, but is quite brindle. The shades blend thru her coat in the most amazing way. Her coat is very straight and silky, and tho she had been championed for months, she still ran around the house in full coat until her first litter came, as she didn’t tangle at all. I only brushed her out about once a week and just didn’t want to cut that beautiful coat off until I had to. She has large dark eyes, excellent pigment, a beautiful large round head and a picture-perfect bite. She is very elegant, and is a lovely mover, with long free movement in both the front and rear and an excellent forechest. She is quite a lady in every way, and finished easily in a few shows, finishing in the Bred-by class with two group 2 placements in Bred-by competition.

CH SAPPHIRE’S KISSED BY A COWBOY, “SCARLETT”

Best-in-Show Bred-by-Exhibitor 

Best in Show in Bred-by-Exhibitor competition

Best in Show in Bred-by-Exhibitor competition

Scarlett had so much enthusiam like Cowboy her father, that showing her was a hoot , as she was everyone’s best friend, but she had trouble containing herself; the only thing holding her cells of enthusiasm together was her skin. She is a super mover, a lot of dog in a medium package, having long reach and drive, with a very level smooth topline. She has a lovely straight, tangle free coat. She is an extremely affectionate girl and has been since her litter was  Shih Tzu puppies. She earned her championship from the Bred-By class and took Best in Show Bred-By Exhibitor the day she earned her championship.  Like her mom, Coco, she ran around in coat for over a month after becoming a champion, and tho I only ran a brush thru her long, thick coat about once a week she just didn’t tangle.

SAPPHIRE’S BRANDING IRON HOT, “BRANDY”

Brandy's 1st win, 15 mos of age

Brandy’s 1st win, 15 mos of age

Brandy, a red and white, is a full sister to her champion sister Scarlett, but a different litter.  While Scarlett looks more like her mom, Coco, Brandy is more like her daddy, Cowboy.  She has no desire to grow-up, but prefers to spend her time playing and wrestling with the younger Shih Tzu puppies.  She is also a cuddle bug.  She has lovely movement, a gorgeous wide bite and a big, round head, which is so correct for a shih tzu. She jumps like a deer and should probably be an agility dog.  I wish she would “tone it down” a bit, because sometimes she scares me the way she jumps off things in the house…she knows no fear!

CH SAPPHIRE’S LACED WITH DIAMONDS, “LACY”

Lacy's 1st Major, 5 points

Lacy’s 1st Major, 5 points

Lacy is Yogo’s littermate sister. She is a stick of dynamite in a small package. She is a brindle color with straight hair of silk, which is a breeze to care for. She has no fear of anything, the whole world is her best friend, and I have to be ready because she will run at me and leap, expecting me to catch her, at which point I am smothered with enthusiastic kisses. Her very 1st time in the ring at 6 mos I had not even leash trained her but put her in to build points for a major. It was a job to not let the judges see her movement. She won Best Shih Tzu Puppies and a group 1 for Best Toy Puppy that same day. Even though I was trying to keep her from winning, she took reserves to a major that same weekend. She is championed with several Group 1’s in Bred-by-Exhibitor to her credit.  I now call her my ‘velcro’ dog as the second I sit down, she is tight up against me and doesn’t move.  She gets one side of  my bed pillow and Teka gets the other ( I get a small spot in the middle), but I love it!

CH Sapphire’s Picture Perfect, “Pixie”

Pixie, New Champion

Pixie, New Champion

Pixie is from my last Shih Tzu puppies out of my Teka and a male from my friend in Canada of My Dream Shih Tzu, and she fits her name.  She is a smaller girl, but so very balanced and a lovely mover.  She had a carefree coat, blending brindle coloring with red, seldom needing brushing and just never tangling.  She has the sweetest personality and I often ‘catch her’ just looking at me, watching me.  She loves to snuggle, never does anything wrong, and has the cutest habit of “singing” once a day, usually in  mid-morning for about 5-10 seconds.  Other than that little song, she is as quiet as a mouse and oh so sweet.

Sapphire’s Allure of Amore’, “Sophie”

Beautiful Sophie

Sophie is an Allie (Shih Tzu puppy littermate to Coco) daughter who is still being shown.   She has a very quiet personality but loves to run and play.  Sophie is a silver and white like her mom and a ver pretty mover.  She has the same lovely eyes and compact style.  She shows well and I’m looking forward to taking her in the ring again.

20150108_091217 - Copy

Bubbles is also an Allie daughter out of Yogo.  She is still a Shih Tzu puppy but is looking very nice, a gold and white with lovely dark markings.  She has Allie’s same lovely rear-end and a beautiful face like her father, Yogo.  She is good-natured, super affectionate, outgoing, and loves everyone.  She should be fun to show.
