JAZZ & AMI
Two fabulous show dogs, two fabulous producers.
When we first laid eyes on Ami, we were taken with her. A little pup with character, style, class, pizazz, showmanship, and anything you else you could think of.
A delight to have at home and what a show dog. from the first time Ami set foot in the show ring, she just loved to win. Ami loved ribbons and if the judge didn't give her the ribbon she was not impressed. Fortunately there were not many times she didn't win. Still Australia's top winning Bichon bitch, Ami won 8 Best in Shows at All Breeds level, Best in Show at both the Breed club Championship Show and Open Show and numerous Best in Group awards.
Only a small bitch, she stood 10" at the shoulder, but she could move like a dream.
Ami was taken out of the ring in her prime at about 3 years of age and had four litters, producing 15 puppies. This yielded 13 Champions in 5 different countries. The only pup not to be "made up" was Pride, who was sent to the U.K. at 3 months of age and had to spend 6 months in quarantine. Pride was sent to Jo Brown from whom we purchased Jazz, and although the quarantine affected him from a show perspective, he did sire an English Champion.
Jazz was purchased by us when he was about 3 years of age. What a delightful dog. He was a special dog with a wonderful temperament.
He is the best dog we have seen, and even today would compete anywhere in the world, which is truly remarkable when you consider he was born over 20 years ago.
Unbeaten at breed club Championship shows, Jazz was truly a great show dog. But it was as a sire that he excelled. He is the Breed record holder in Australia, having sired 32 Champions.
Jazz and Ami are gone now but they live on in their progeny, and certainly in our memory. There are two lovely roses in our garden, one red and one white, for our Jazz and Ami.
Two wonderful dogs to live with. We owe so much to them, and we miss them so much - even after all these years.
