I caught the show bug, and I wanted a great quality bitch to show and to hopefully become my foundation bitch of my own breeding program in the future. As they say, the universe shows you the way and things happen for a reason. I was not really actively looking for said bitch, as Rudy was still young and I had things I wanted to do with him first, but a casual email turned into one of the best things that could have ever happened!
I had known Greg and Theresa of ConnQuest Dobermans from the dog shows. Their male special Gage, was a dog that not only was so impressive to look at but who reminded me a lot of my old dog Strider. They were having a repeat breeding of Dani & Gage. Both American and Canadian Grand Champions and both exceptional representations of the breed. Gage is also the #1 Doberman in Canada, the #1 Working Dog in Canada and Top10 All breeds in Canada 2013. Quite the accomplishement as Gage is owner handled by Greg.
So it came to be that I would get a show bitch from this fantastic breeding, and I named her Vega after the star!
"Vega, the brightest star in the constellation Lyra. Vega has been extensively studied by astronomers, leading it to be termed "arguably the next most important star in the sky after the Sun."
Vega has a temperament like Strider. Bold as brass. She is beautiful and bombproof. She's never spooked, she adjusts to new situations in seconds, and is happy and inquisitive all the time. A little Jumping bean!
She was an easy dog to handle in the ring and I finished her Canadian Championship at 8 months, with a best puppy in group.
Vega, finished her American Championship in February 2017 with 3 majors. And soon I will embark on the beginning of my own breeding program. Luckily, I have Theresa Connors Chan to help guide me down this new and exciting road. Not only did I get a beautiful, sound, confident little bitch, but I got Theresa and Greg too! ha Fantastic support, mentorship and friendship.
And that is what I intend to offer all of my own puppy buyers in the future. Support, mentorship and friendship.
