Sassy X Thriller

Having watched some of the dogs that Thriller had sired – I began to think this breeding might produce some wonderful dogs. At the specialty in Kansas, we had the opportunity to meet Lynn Weinberg again and began the early discussions about this possible breeding.

The breeding was a surgical implant and all went well. Special thanks to Debbie L and Dr Mary at Straws to Paws for all their expertise to make this a successful breeding.  Read more about their services at: http://www.strawstopaws.com/index.php

On Jan 16, 2008 – 8 puppies were born. Again, we were so fortunate to have wonderful homes for the pups.  All were tested at Optigen – and the breeding produced three clear dogs and 5 carriers. The pedigree for this breeding can be found by clicking on the link on Sassy’s page.

These pups are wonderful working dogs. They have lots of energy and a desire to please.  At 7 months old, little Miss Kenzie won a dock diving competition!  Just a few weeks later brother Gabe entered a Rally trial and came away with two Q’s and two placements! As they have matured, they have earned MACH titles, obedience, tracking and field titles. Their titles are updated on k9data.

Finally, a special thanks to Lynn Weinberg for the opportunity to breed to Thriller not once, but twice!!!!!

 On June 9 2010, the puppies arrived from the repeat breeding of Sassy to Thriller.  The litter consists of 6 boys and 3 girls.  All are doing well.
