Rudi was the first puppy born in the litter...in Gabby's crate next to our bed. We weren't quite ready for her but for sure, she was ready to come out! Rudi was always the one in the litter our eyes came back to and was the puppy who was truly determined to do what she wanted when she wanted.
That's right...she's like her mother, Gabby, in both looks and temperament...and it makes us "wanna SHOUT!"
Rudi has consistently given us plenty to shout about. She finished her championship at 11 months of age! Along the way, she beat champions and won many fans. Besides us, of course!
Always owner-breeder handled, Rudi was seen as an occasional special in 2009....with highlights including a Group 4th, a Westminster Kennel Club Award of Merit and a DelVal Specialty AOM.
Rudi retired from showing to become a mom. Her first litter was born in April 2011. You can see their album here. Her daughter, Mike, CH Banner Marymore Double Triple Axel, went to live with her gran'ma Gabby's breeder, Mary Peltier, Marymore Wheatens, and was WB at both the 2012 Northern CA Specialty and Supported Entry and finished with multiple majors and BOBs over specials. Rudi's second litter, out of CH Whindancer Heart Like a
Wheel arrived in February 2013, which included, at last, our Jersey Girl.
Rudi has retired to live with the Vrettos family where is being doted on 24 x 7. As we say, she landed well!
