We really, really wanted to breed Rudi, CH Banner Shout, to “Jackson”, CH Whindancer Heart Like A Wheel. First time around…as sometimes happens…Mother Nature didn’t cooperate. Second time, with equally determined stud dog owner Susan Ratliffe and our dedicated reproduction veterinarian, Dr. Melissa Goodman, we had success.
And what success we had! Pam took a deep breath and registered Zoey as Banner Jersey Girl. A few weeks later, Zoey was Best Puppy at the Morris & Essex match, a couple of weeks after that, caught everyone’s eye over MCKC weekend, and a few weeks later, was Best Puppy in Show at the Gloucester County KC.
She was just getting started.
Zoey finished her championship on the DelVal Specialty weekend at 15 months, going Best in Sweepstakes, Winners’ Bitch and Award of Merit. Four months later, she got her Grand Championship and retired from the ring. She's now living with Pam's brother and sister-in-law where she's now protecting the yard from all sorts of rodent-type intruders!
Zoey has great style, is sound and carries a stunning coat of golden, shining silk…hardly a surprise given her pedigree. We are looking forward to breeding her in 2017.
"Because nothing matters in the whole wide world when you're in love with a Jersey Girl."
