Near Ch. Wyndlair National Anthem

( Ch. Taliesin Continuum × GCHB. Wyndlair Classique Incandescent )

Anna brings us another beautiful blue merle bitch with proud picture, outline, substance, soundness, and expression. And, based on her first litter, she shows great potential as a dominant producer, stamping her puppies with Wyndlair style and detail.

Anna was our pick puppy from perhaps our biggest gamble ever. For her iconic dam’s last litter we decided to dip back into some of our greatest early dogs using some of the last frozen semen from the Avalanche son, Ch. Taliesin Continuum. In our ‘swing for the fences,’ we regained elements of Wyndlair type we thought may have been lost forever.

As a puppy, Anna jumped out of the gate quickly winning specialty majors under respected breeder-judges Debbie Falk (Aurealis) and Lee Runnels (Kimberee). We were very excited about Anna heading into the 2020 CCA National Specialty in the Bred By Exhibitor class, only to have it canceled shortly prior.

Not wishing to dwell on bad luck, we bred Anna to the GCHB. Wyndlair Point Given son, Ch. Tavern Hill Limerick Celtic Classic. We were blessed with a large healthy litter, and at barely 8 months, her blue merle daughter Ch. Wyndlair Star Spangled finished undefeated in the classes with 4 specialty majors and a Best in Sweepstakes. Daughter Wyndlair Cherokee Independence has a specialty reserve. Anna proved to be a powerful typesetter in her first litter and we are excited to see what she does as a pillar of our breeding program.

Anna will be out to finish her AKC championship when dog shows return in earnest. In the meantime, we are planning a Spring 2021 litter with her.
