Pedigree Below

 

Shortly after River arrived, her breeder loaned Holly to me so I could learn to show a Borzoi.  Expectations were low for a somewhat gawky teenager.  But she and I developed a rapport and she blossomed in an environment where she could be the Princess.  Two decades of grooming Collies also helped me develop the full potential of her luxurious coat.  She started winning, and we converted the temporary loan into a permanent co-ownership.  Holly completed her AKC Championship six months to the day from our first show together.  Her first Group placement as a young special was my first in any breed.

Holly's second career was in the whelping box.  Her first litter, the Celtic Blues , sired by DC Del Sol Lord Of The Dance, SC, GRC, LCM was whelped May 16, 2008.  Her second sired by MBISS Ch. Chataqua's Valimir Of Kyrov, SC, ROMX-C arrived December 14, 2009.

She returned from her double maternity leave in mid 2010 and quickly achieved her AKC Grand Champion title.

Holly aged gracefully, regal to the end of her long life.  Her last photo was taken the day before her 13th birthday.
