|Ch Tronjheim Belladonna from Jojavik JW ShCM
WE ARE sorry to report the death of Victoria and Jackie Ingramâ€™s Dobermann, Harlie, Ch Tronjheim Belladonna from Jojavik JW ShCM aged nine years, writes Sue Thorn
Harlie has an astonishing track record. First, her own record. Harlie had four CCs and seven RCCs (including three from veteran) and two all-breed BIS as well as several breed club BIS. In veteran, she resumed her winning ways with multiple veteran group wins, BVIS at Southern Counties 2018 and Darlington 2019, and RBVIS at WPBAW and Windsor 2019. In fact, Harlie had still been in the ring and winning until a few weeks before her death, having won BVIS at Welsh Dobe and BDDC just last month.
However, it was as a brood bitch that she really broke the records. She has been Top Brood Bitch in the breed every year since 2014. She was Top Brood Bitch all breeds in 2018 and holds the same spot for 2019 at the time of writing. Her progeny includes 6 UK champions and another on 2 CCs. Her progeny have 123 CCs between them and include Ch, Ir Ch Jojavik Midnight Express JW ShCM who has 41 CCs, and the breed bitch record holder and joint youngest champion, Ch, Ir Ch Jojavik Poison Ivy JW ShCM, who between them are the biggest winning siblings in the breedâ€™s history. She also has two champion grandchildren, including Ch Jojavik Devilâ€™s Ivy JW, who sits on 5 CCs at less than 2 years of age and is currently joint leader for top dobermann 2019. The end of an era, indeed. Condolences to Victoria, Jackie and Josh, who I know are devastated.
