Ch. Winbuck's Lyric came to live with me at six months of age. I felt that I needed to bring more type into my breeding program, and Rosie had it in spades. It took awhile for her to grow into herself--she had the gangly "puppy uglies" for several months--and then suddenly she blossomed. At the California Specialty in 2003, she was Winners Bitch/Best of Winners and received an Award of Merit. But her greatest accomplishment, as far as I'm concerned, is that she produced the litter containing Panda and Gryphon. So she did exactly what I acquired her for: produced lovely puppies who exhibited better type. Thank you, Rosie!
