CCs at Welsh KC and WHWT Club in 2006.  She

becomes the 6th Champion for her kennel and her sire, Ch

Hopecharm Willie Makeit for Karamynd.  She also joins

two littermates as UK Champions, becoming only the third

post war litter to contain 3 UK title holders.  All are owned,

bred and handled by Jennie Griffiths.  Brother, High As A Kite

has 2 Club show BIS awards, while sister, Paws For Applause

has 2CCs from Crufts and a Club BIS.  Hattie went one further

than her littermates, taking BOB and then BIS at Scottish

Breeds, following in the footsteps of sire, Rowan who took BIS

at National Terrier in 2003. Her first litter produced Crufts

Best Puppy, K Play The Game, by Ch Bournehaven Birthday

Guy who sired the last triple Champion litter for the Burneze

kennel. One of these, Chatter Box was also BIS at Scottish

Breeds in 2004.

Pepabby Priceless becomes the 8th UK Champion for

Pat and Joe Edmondson and Julie Farmer.  "Roxie" is a 5th

generation of Champion bitches, leading from dam, Ch Precious,

to Ch Personality, to Ch Pavlova then to the first bitch Champion

Petite.  Also appearing in the pedigree are the kennel's first title

holder, Poacher and another Petite daughter, Ch Poppet. Priceless

becomes the first Champion for both parents.  Her sire is Ch Krisma

Jammydodger, a Group and RBIS winner who took 3CCs from

of 2006.  She took her 2nd at Paignton with her grandsire

and the first double CC for her owner.  The 3rd came at the

May SKC and so she becomes the 29th homebred Champion

for the Ashgate kennel, now #3 in the UK after Wolvey and

Famecheck.  5 more have been bred by others.  Maybole is

owned and bred by Sue Thomson from two homebreds, the multi-

titled Ch A Scot's Progress and the JW  winning, A Mary.  She

is Scot's 2nd UK Champion and is linebred to littermates,

Sinclair and Skerry.  Mary was one of Sinclair's last daughters

the year as one of the Top Puppies all breeds.  Not yet

18 months, Delta becomes the 7th Champion for his breeder

Marie Purchon and the 2nd in 2007 after his dam, Kerrygan

was made up at the of England show.  Delta comes from

Kerry's first litter and is also the first UK Champion for his

sire, Ch L Brannigan.  Brannigan is Kerry's uncle as she is

from his CC winning younger sister, Shannon so Delta is

linebred to the mating of Ch Krisma Streetwise and Lindenka

Zippitydoodah.  For a short time the Lindenka kennel housed

6 UK Champions (the 7th, Little Poppet was owned by Audrey

Allen) until the sad passing of the bitch behind them all, Ch

Champion, L Prim'n Proper, then was made up herself.  The

rest of the Lindenkas descend from her.

special Centenary show and Belfast, where she also took

Group#2.  She is owned and bred by Ken and Pamela Crockett,

becoming the 6th UK Champion for the Havasu kennel (4 within

the last two years), and a first for sire and dam.  She is by German

Two of Grasshopper's great grandfathers are UK bred, Danish Ch

Prince William of Clantartan and German Ch Trewen Tartan

Ranger.  The litter also contained 3 other Champions, Am Ch H

Reeks Havoc at Charosmack, Can/Am Ch H Hobgoblin and recently

crowned Irish Ch H Pocus Hocus. Humber Lady is already the

granddam of a UK Champion, the Foster's H Hidden Treasure at

granddaughter of Ir Ch Glenveagh Melrose Morag, dam of the first

two Glenveagh Champions, Giselle and Tamara.  Giselle was the

"Rocco" made his UK debut at Crufts this year and took the

CC, BOB and was pulled out in the group final.  He had travelled

from Sweden with his owner, Suzanne Birberg of the Match kennel

but was bred in France by Ruth O'Connor.  He became the first overseas

Westie to win BOB at Crufts.  Later in the year he returned to the UK

and took 2CCs in 2 shows, both BOB and with group places, handled by

Geoff Corish (he has handled over 30 UK Westie Champions).  Rocco is

only the 4th overseas dog to gain a title in the UK.  Geoff handled the 2nd,

Tweed Tartan Caledonier in the 70s and Rocco is a descendant.  The

Moulin de Macgregor kennel of Ruth O'Connor is successful across Europe

in Westies and Scotties (Rocco is not the 1st Crufts CC winner bred there)

She incorporated UK lines from the Wesscots kennel of Maureen Emmins.  

 Rocco is linebred to two, French Ch W Gladiator and W Over The Moon.  

The Wesscots proved influential for the short time it operated with 4 UK

Champions bred there and Wesscots dogs behind Krisma and Bellevue

Champions.  Rocco himself went to Sweden at 12 months old.  He is an

International and Nordic Champion, winning 21CCs in Sweden before his

2nd birthday.  He was Top Swedish Westie in 2004 and has sired nine

Champions so far.  Suzanne's Match kennel has produced 13 Champions

despite breeding on a small scale.
