Ch. Ka-Zes Tangled Up In Blue
What qualities distinguish your stud dog, including
conformation attributes, temperament, show career, etc.?
Dylan was one of those puppies that stole our heart and
soul from the moment he was born. He is the happiest puppy
we have ever bred, and if you have ever met him, you know
the love he has for people. We believe his philosophy
is that all people were put on this earth to "love"
him, and him alone! His show career speaks for itself.
He finished at nine months with five majors, garnered
several Specialty BOB, and at under two years of age,
was awarded BOS to BOB at the 2000 National. His overall
balance, outline and stunning color, draw your attention
in the show ring. These attributes are a complement to
his beautiful, long, lean, clean head. He has a beautiful,
correct, flat backskull, excellent underjaw and finish,
with no depth of head, a correctly placed stop, and beautiful
almond shaped eyes that add to a melting expression. Add
to all this, graceful movement and we couldn't ask
for more in a stud dog.
What should bitch owners know about your stud? i.e.
eye check, pure for sable, etc.
Along with Dylan's beautiful head detail, he is producing
his stunning silvery color in his get. Many people have
asked us if we can "bottle" his color.
Comment on anything else that you would like people
to know about your stud, his breeding and his get.
We were so thrilled with the CCA National this year. To
have four out of seven of Dylan's get (that were
there) place in the classes, was far more than we dreamed
of! But then to have "dad" follow up with BOS
to BOB -- well, we believe his qualities and virtues speak
Please summarize in a paragraph or two your breeding
philosophy and how your stud dog fits into that philosophy.
We believe that health and temperament are first and foremost
in breeding. You must have an all-around good-natured
dog with an outgoing personality, whether you show in
conformation, obedience, agility, herding or place a puppy
in a companion home. Without this, there is no starting
We believe that you must start with the virtues and qualities
that appeal to you, and then work on accenting those virtues
in your breedings. In starting out in Collies, we found
out the hard way that it is very difficult to take a mediocre
bitch to a quality laden stud and expect to get everything
that stud has to offer. A stud dog cannot work miracles!
We have been very successful in our breeding program
in the last few years, and we will continue to strive
to keep what we have in Dylan. He is producing those virtues
and qualities that appeal to us, and our goal is to --
someday -- not only have a dog known as Ka-Zes, but a
collie "line" known as Ka-Zes.
