|Fen makes history at leeds
Tracey PITTOCK’S Japanese Spitz Itoshi Toto Kijutsu At Cheechako (Fen) made breed history last weekend as she won two CCs, one at Leeds and one at the Northern Japanese Spitz Club championship show on the same day!
Rosemary Stevenson-Reynolds judged at Leeds and awarded him the DCC and BOB, then Lynne Smith gave him the DCC at the NJSC. his other two CCs CAME from East Of England 2018 under Margaret Craig-Woodward and SKC (May) this year under Melanie Reed-Peck.
Fen was sired by 16-year-old frozen semen in Australia. His breeder, Sue Templeton, had one last file left after previous attempts to use it had failed but this one produced seven puppies! The sire was an Italian import called Belegund di Paranor bred by Luisella Cechinatto. Tracey told OUR DOGS: ‘He was a very influential sire in the then developing breed in Australia. As soon as I knew these pups were born I knew I wanted one. Sue offered me pick of the dogs and based purely on pictures I knew which one I wanted. A true laid back Aussie he has been a joy!
‘We’re so over the moon and his breeder has hardly stopped crying since I messaged her from the show!
‘He won BIS at his first club show from minor puppy under David Matthews. David said that Fen was something special and it turns out he was right!’
