"KYAH"
GROUP WINNING CFC ELITE & *NEW* CH DUSHANBE'S WINTERMIST SHOWBOAT RN  CGN PCD TT(CH and CFC CH Dushanbe's Make Mine Cool Mint CGN RN PCD x Ch Vanderbilt's Rockin' The Boat). Pictured at three years of age winning Group First under Irish judge Sean Delmar April 2013.

"KYAH" came back to us in February 2013 when the breeder she had been sold to passed away. She is  an enthusiastic worker at obedience classes and absolutely loves the show ring. She is, indeed, a 'showboat' and attracts people to her like a magnet. We look forward to competing with Kyah this year in conformation shows as well as rally and even obedience.

Kyah picked up her first three points towards her Canadian championship at Dartmouth Kennel Club shows in May, 2013 and....two legs towards her Rally Novice title...with two High in Class! She finished her Rally Novice title at Tantramar Kennel Club
May 18, 2013 with another High in Class (and score of 95) and then added a fourth 'leg' the following day with another first in class!

Also at Tantramar, Kyah did well in conformation, winning a Best of Breed over specials and then another Winners Bitch to bring her point total to six....while out of coat!

Kyah was bred to "DYLAN" (CH and CFC CH Dushanbe's Rock Legend) and had a litter of eight puppies (2 boys, 6 girls) born August 6, 2013.

On Labour Day weekend Kyah took another turn at the performance ring picking up her Pre-Novice title in three straight trials at Halifax Kennel Club trials.

She capped off the year in style by passing her Temperament Test in October. Talk about a whirlwind year for our multi-tasker !

Kyah is proud of her daughters sired by Dylan. "STARS" has a match Group Second and BPIG. "WILLOW" has a match Group First and a Group Second ....and three BB's, BOS at the 2014 SAC Booster and is close to finishing her championship. 
"TIFFANY", who lives with us, has a BPIM win, four Best of Breeds, and finished her championship with a Fourth in Group and Best Puppy in Group.

Kyah took WB for another two points her first weekend out in March 2014 when finally back in coat.

KYAH was bred to BIS BISS CH SUMMERHILLS BLACK PAW and had four boys and two girls the end of July, 2014. Two of those puppies, JESSIE and CRUSH, were pointed at their first shows in March, 2015 and KYAH finished her own championship with points to spare with BOS over specials. CRUSH is already half way to his title and has a Best of Breed over specials and two BPIG.

"TENNY" is our top producer with thirteen champions. Five by our "MANNY", five by "FONZIE" and three champions by "JASPER" (BISS Am Ch White Magic's Rockstar).  Photo taken at three years of age.

Tenny is proud of her son, "NEWMAN", (CHAMPION DUSHANBE'S MAN O' MY DREAMS) sired by Manny who won Best of Winners for a two point win on his six month birthday at Halifax Kennel Club shows, Sept 7, 2009. Newman then went on to place in his 6-9 class at the SCA Nat'l in Indianapolis in October in both puppy sweeps and the regular classes. He has added three Best of Breed since then and finished his championship with a three point Best of Winners at Moncton Kennel Club November 2010. 

"DYLAN", our keeper puppy from the Jasper litter began his show career at six months on the dot with a two point Best of Breed. He then went on to take third place at the SCA National Specialty sweeps under Donna Dannen in Tennessee. Now co-owned with us and  Bobbi-Jo Sears and Lee Brander (Manshe Samoyeds), Dylan became  CH DUSHANBE'S ROCK LEGEND finishing his championship with a total of three Best of Breed and five Best of Winners at Oromocto Kennel Club June 11, 2011.

Sister, "KANDI", showed a glimmer of her potential by winning a nice two point Winners Bitch at Moncton Kennel Club shows at seven months of age. Then came out on June 10, 2011 to take back-to-back Best of Winners/ Best of Breed at Oromocto Kennel Club in NB. Another successful weekend at Fredericton shows netted her another BWs and three WB to bring her within a couple of points of finishing her title. She decided to wait and finish that title in style by taking a three point WINNERS BITCH at the Samoyed Association of Canada's National Specialty in May, 2012. Way to go Linda Roulston (Linrosa Samoyeds)on *NEW CH DUSHANBE'S LINROSA ROCK KANDI, owner handled all the way.

"SOAVE" decided that she would join the action and picked up her first point as a puppy in December, 2010 in Ontario. Then came out to Erie Shores Shows to take Best of Winners for three points in June 2011. Another successful run at Markham shows gave her a BWs and three more WB to become  CHAMPION VANDERBILT'S APRIL WINE. Handled by  Margaret Gillies(Gilara Samoyeds) and co-owned by her with Judi and Blair Elford (Vanderbilt Samoyeds) Ontario.

Tenny is very proud of her number one son here at home, TENNYSON, on a successful performance weekend at Halifax, Sept, 2011 on earning his CGN and RN titles. Followed by his PCD in three trials in 2012. He is now Ch&CFC Ch. DUSHANBE's MAKE MINE COOL MINT, CGN RN *NEW PCD*.

In May, 2012 Tenny won first in Brace class with daughter LILAC at the Samoyed Assoc of Canada's National Specialty as well as first in Brood Bitch with her 'JASPER' kids DYLAN and KANDI.

She followed this up in Sept by placing  fourth in Brood Bitch at the 2012 SCA National Specialty in Gettysburg with her kids "Lilac" and "Painter" (BISS Am GCH Vanderbilt I'll Paint Manhattan, MX MXJ XF BN. Painter won BOS in Working Sweeps as well as Award of Merit !

In order to keep up with her kids getting new performance titles, Tenny gave the obedience ring a whirl earning her Pre-Novice title at Halifax Kennel Club in Sept, 2013. Not bad for a ten and a half year old:-).
