Ch. Vennessee’s Summer Wind
2003 CCA Reserve Winners Dog
( Vennessee Truth Be Told × Vennessee Pretty Woman )
Most National wins are the result of months of planning, training, grooming & conditioning. Others happen to walk by your set-up the night before. Long after the Vennessee heydays of the 1990s, breeder Joyce Weimann walked a stunning sable puppy dog by the Wyndlair grooming set-up just hours before the opening of the 2003 CCA…and we went running after her. Dash looked like a slam-dunk CCA Winners Dog. He won his class with ease and appeared to be cruising to his seemingly predestined place in history until an unforeseen & unrealized hiccup occurred at the center ring in Winners Dog. It would have been an unprecedented National for Wyndlair having already won Winners Bitch with Ch. Southland’s Confederate Sky. Regardless, Dash walked away from the National as the 2003 CCA Reserve Winners Dog. He was a special puppy that oozed class & detail. He was truly a credit to his great breeder, the late Joyce Weinmann of Vennessee Collies.
