Ch Kurakuma's In Your Dreams CGC
Snazi is Allie's first born daughter. She took her first
major at six months old, then had to take a year and a half off of showing because of an
injury. She eventually made it back into the show ring, but because of what she went
through, she was too shy to show really well. Even so, she took a few more points,
and we decided to breed her to GP CH Skipalong's Billy Bad Ax (otherwise known as a
well-kept secret <VBG>) and she had a litter of four puppies.
When she went back into the ring, she was a new dog. With new confident and a
showier attitude, she soon took her second major and then a third to finish!!! We
are proud to say too, that her third major was by going Best of Winners, and there was a
major in both females AND males at that show. It was a large, very nice win over
some lovely competition.
Since then, Snazi has entered the UKC ring with a bang! At her first two shows, held
on the same day, Snazi went Winner's bitch, then Best of Breed! That was a very nice
win, as Snazi came from the class by beating another very nice bitch, took BOW, beating a
very nice male, then took Best of Breed by beating out three champions and a grand
champion!! There were no groups, just a very large Best in Show Ring, and Snazi made
the first cut in that too! Snazi should finish her UKC title some time this year.
Snazi has to be one of our sweetest, most adorable dogs. When our family comes over,
they stare at our horde of schipperkes and say in the same breath, "How can you tell
all these dogs apart??? I like that one!" Inevitably, they are pointing
The name "Snazi" is a spelling variation of the word "Snazzy" and it
is short for Snazi Girl. She received this name as she was being born - as I said,
she was Allie's first born girl, after 6 boys (4 from previous litters, 2 from this one),
and as she spilled into my hands and I rolled her over and saw she was a girl and told
Mother that "It's a girl!! And what a snazzy girl, too!!" Thus she
was probably our earliest named puppy.
