Pepper
AKC GRCH Keelypso's Tickle My Fancy

Pepper was our pick bitch from Harper's first litter, bred to GRCH Confetti's St. Nick. She is spunky and self-assured and lots of fun to show. She started her show career at the shows in Denver, CO by placing in a large Bred-By class all but one day, as a six month old, and earned her first Reserve Winners Bitch at the Terry-All KC shows in Brighton, CO. She took another RWB at the Flatirons KC shows in Longmont, CO. Pepper's winning streak began at the Evergreen KC shows in Greeley, CO, taking a 5 point major and Best of Winners. At the next shows, Arapahoe KC in Aurora, CO, she took a 4 point major. Two weeks later, at the Buckhorn Valley KC show in Greeley, CO she completed the requirements for her AKC Championship by taking Winners Bitch both days for two more 5 point majors at 14 months of age.Pepper is a very nice moving girl with excellent type and should make a fun Special.

Pepper had a silent heat on her first cycle and was accidentally bred by Frisco in September of 2014 and produced 2 pups on Christmas day. She was not able to compete for Grand Champion points until June of 2015, due to being totally out of coat from the post-puppy blow. She was back in decent coat by the Roaring Fork KC shows and received the Select Bitch award the first day, followed by a Select at the Arapahoe KC show, BOS at the Buckhorn Valley KC show, and 2 BOS wins and 1 Select award at the four days of shows in Pueblo, CO. After these wins, she needed only 1 point to complete her Grand Championship, so Cindy took her to Texas where she received two more Select awards to easily earn that final point, with one to spare. She will be shown over the 2016 year to add to her Grand Champion points as much as possible, before she is intentionally bred, probably in early Fall 2016.
