Bosc and Thacker's owner has decided to focus on her other breed so our Florida sisters will not attain their championships. These girls are well-bred and special to us and still owed the recognition due to them, their breeder, their sire and dams, their siblings and many generations of Greater Swiss behind them that are the creation of thoughtful breeding practices.
Bosc is from the Blessed Be the Fruits litter and the result of Pluck traveling back from the Ohio GSMDCA National Specialty with me to Oregon where she stayed with Nash's breeder/co-owner Bonnie Huett for a month. Pluck quickly wormed her way into everyone's heart she met with her sweet disposition. On Christmas day we were so excited about the arrival of Bosc and her littermates it was truly the best Christmas present ever! Since Bosc went home during the start of COVID-19 shutdowns she wasn't able to start her showing career immediately, but in a few short months earned eight points towards her AKC championship owner handled. Bosc's sibling Gatsby and Fig are both finished champions and we're hopeful they'll receive favorable health clearances. Bosc in Puppy Match - VIDEO
Thacker is from the Julia Roberts' Films litter and boy were we excited for these puppies! Kristin drove from North Carolina and I drove from Oregon to meet in middle America Nebraska to do this breeding...so many hours in the car (42 hours roundtrip to be exact!), but we knew these puppies were meant for something special; thankfully we have Slice, Clooney and August in show and potential breeding homes. Thacker was expertly shown by Nash's handler Luke Baggenstos PHA at Royal Canin AKC National Championship in Orlando, FL in December 2020 where she won the GSMD Puppy Sweepstakes and made the cut in a hugely competitive group ring. Thacker earned several 4-6 Puppy Group placements and earned five points and a major towards her AKC championship.
