While we were prevented from having our own Point Given puppy, we were blessed with a granddaughter of his in Multi-BISS Ch. Wyndlair Amen Hallelujah. She has allowed us to carry-on Xander’s pedigree and legacy in our breeding program. Hailey is sired by the GCh. Wyndlair Point Given (2014 #1 Rough Collie) son, Ch. Thorndale Point Determined (2015 CCA WD/BW/Best Puppy), and is out of the Top-Winning White Collie in breed history, Ch. Wyndlair Classique Incandescent (2014 CCA BOS/BOB, 2018 Top 10).
“Hailey” finished nearly undefeated from the Bred-By Exhibitor class in 5 shows at 8 months of age. Her show record was:
Best In Sweepstakes – j. Vickie Picorillo – St. Louis CC
WB/BW/BOV/BOB over 14 specials (4 pts.) – j. Nioma Coen – St. Louis CC
WB/BW (5 pts.) – j. Marcy Fine – Central States CC
RWB (5 pts.) – j. Nancy Anstruther – Central States CC
WB/BW/BOS over 6 specials (5 pts.) – j. Linda Robbins – Central States CC
WB to finish (3 pts) – j. Judy Bryant – Northern Wisconsin CC
And, her first show as a move-up special:
BEST OF BREED over 11 specials – j. Daniel Wheatcroft – Northern Wisconsin CC
That Best of Breed win included going over multiple CCA-winning & Top 10 Collies. Her wins were under some of the most respected judges in our breed. Quite the accomplishments for an 8-month-old puppy.
Following her show career, she was bred to Ch. Classique Midnight Vision – 2014 CCA Winners Dog – and produced Ch. Wyndlair Classique Envision – 2018 CCA 1st 6-9 AOAC.
“Hailey” has been purchased by Astrid Lautenschlag of Germany. We look forward to the contributions Hailey can make to the Collie breed in Deutschland.
