Chia was a breeding I had planned on doing on paper, for many years.
I wanted to use Colonel with a slightly more refined girl to blend type and form.
The result was Chia who really is the complete package for me.
I was happy that she had size, head type and a super dark tight curly coat.
Chia's coat came in with soft long and short wiry bits, what we call "Ugly Duckling" coat
so I made the choice to shave it all down short and even, and start over growing show coat.
As you can see, her "ugly duckling" coat, well = "SWAN"
Chia tried showing CKC and she really did not enjoy the experience of being sent away.
So I decided to show her myself in UKC, and she finished her Championship VERY quickly.
I would love to continue showing her to her Grand, but Chai decided she was done.
What I didn't bargain for in this bigger and well muscled girl
was such a soft sweet nature so eager and willing to work and please.
I hope to enjoy doing many Dog Sports with my beautiful girl, "Chia".
