It was rather clear to me that Luca was staying the moment she slid into my hands, hence her name. Everything she does, she does well, and looks pretty doing it.
Shown on a limited basis, she started winning her first time in the ring, and has continued with impressive wins including Best of Winners and Best in Sweeps at her first specialty, Winners at prestigious Morris and Essex and a Best of Breed over specials, all before turning 10 months old.
Windy is a very sweet girl who is actually owned by Skip Smith and was bred by Katie Tazza of Up 'N Adam Kennels. She was with us for the summer of 2015 and bred to Brew. We were blessed with 7 gorgeous puppies, including our Tess and Skip's Summer who is a Champion in the show ring and a Senior Hunter. She is also grand-dam to our Mali and Dalton
Up 'N Adam's Simply Awesome "Windy"
Bunny refused to be outdone by her brothers, she finished her championship with 4 majors, the last one being a Best of Breed win over specials. She especially wowed us with impressive placements at the 2014 GSPCA Nationals including wins in her Futurity and Sweeps classes. She is a beautiful, correct size girl and looks just like her mama, Grace. she loves the field and is always looking for a chance to hunt. Bunny is co-owned by Esther Cassatt and Tracy Novoa, who also handled her to most of her wins. Esther trained and handled Bunny in the field and obedience/rally rings, and now in agility. You can view her pedigree here and her health clearances here.
Also like her mama, Bunny has proven herself in the whelping box, she gave us two of the nicest litters we have had here at Windheim, giving us our Raven and Foxy.
CH Windheim's She's A Real Pistol
We are so proud of Pistol, from the Boondock/Gracie breeding, shown sparingly, she completed her championship with several wins of Best of Breed or Best of Opposite over champions. She was also a great mom to a beautiful litter of pups.
Pistol is co-owned and loved by our friend Sarah Teymant and we are so thankful to Sarah for sharing Pistol with us.
Windheim's Good Gracious JH RN
Mali is our young girl from our Colt/Tess litter, a real sweetheart that easily learns any task given to her. Quickly attained a JH title in 4 consecutive tests and then jumped right in to the Rally ring. COVID put a damper on her show career, but she did win Best Puppy in Show twice. Mali lives with our daughter and is loved by all who meet her.
UKC CH Windheim's Dark Desire, SH, RE, BN, CGC
We just adore this beautiful Elk/Bunny girl, looking very much like Papa Elk, she is a bird finding machine. She followed sister Foxy in earning her Junior Hunter title just a few weeks after turning 6 months old, with incredible scores that included many 9's and 10's. She breezed through her Senior Hunter title as well. While she will not be entering AKC conformation shows because of her color, she made her presence known at UKC shows winning Best of Breeds and group placements in route to completing her Championship. She is also field trial pointed.
Our beauty from the Brew/Windy litter, we knew she was special and trouble all rolled up in a pretty package early on! Tess is a UKC Champion, is pointed in the AKC show ring, easily finished her Junior Hunter title, and with her desire to please attitude and ease of trainability, is breezing through Rally Obedience titles.
Following in the pawprints of those in previous generations, she is phenomenal in the field, has incredible bird finding ability, naturally retrieves and backs, and also loves to retrieve in the water.
Tess's most recent accomplishment has been in the whelping box, she has produced 2 fantastic litters and is one of the best mama dogs we have ever had.
