Our Beautiful Sweet Ivy. Ivy finished with two Best of Breeds from Breeder Judges including a Supported Entry BOB and major from Jonathon Kimes. She also has an Award of Merit from the 2009 National Specialty.
Ivy has the most beautiful head of all our bitches and the big floating sidegait of her sire and dam. Unfortunately, Ivy is a reluctant showgirl and is retired from the ring. In her first litter she is the dam of Henry, Nichelle and Nili all of who inherited her style and movement.
2009 National Specialty critique for Ivy’s Award of Merit
CH Afara Incandescent, Owner Paul Chen – Blue Merle/White, I’ve had this one before and loved her just as much this second time around – she’s negatively impacted by her somewhat dark, “loud” blue pattern and slightly excessive coat and is no great showgirl. Her pluses are her gorgeous headpiece, excellent make and shape, lovely outline, superb bone and feet, lovely front and she’s a wonderful mover when allowed to move at the correct pace – she’s one I feel could be missed by too many based on the superficials as she’s unquestionably in the top flight.
