WHL Dancing Sky of North Winter Wind    "Nora"      Yellow

 

Nora is a gentle girl that is very mild mannered.  She is happy, unassuming, smart and beautiful.  Along with her pleasing temperament she has spirit and spunk.   She is one that will surprise you with her eagerness when we go outdoors for fetch, swim or play time.  She is fast, focused and she has FUN!  She is a great playmate with other dogs and she is wonderful with our children.  Water and fetch are some of her favorite past times.  Her coat is correct with the the nice variation that adds character.  Especially dark pigment outlines her eyes which make her eyes striking.   She has some of the most beautiful eyes I have ever seen.  We are thankful to have Nora here to share our days.

Coldwater's Royal Chief Mulan  "Mulan"    Chocolate Retired

 

Mulan is a tail-wagging happy girl.  You can always know where she is because you listen for the thump-thump of her beautiful, curly tail beating to her happy heart.  She LOVES people and she thinks she weighs about 5 pounds...she would like to curl on on your lap and snuggle all day.

Gabriella My Gorgeous Girl    "Gabby"    Chocolate

Our oldest daughter took Gabby close to her heart as a pup.  She would keep Gabby close by her side while reading, doing chores or sleeping...hence her name.

Gabby is a deep, dark chocolate coat.  Her pleasant, attentive eyes show her gentle and loving temperament.  She is a friend to all.  She does have a peppy side where she likes to show off her focus and her intelligence.  Playing tag with Therese and Nina is one of her favorite things second to being with 'her' people.  She likes to play yet she will be a gentle foot warmer if that is our pleasure.   Leaguer is her sire and her puppies will be sired by Thunder...so her pups have the best of both of our chocolate boys.  She is our girl with some field line a couple of generations up on her dam's side so she is one of our favorite choices for hunt placements.  Agility and speed with smooth movement make her a dream to watch when she is retrieving.

WHL California Girl Howling at the Winterwinds    "Cali"      Black Retired

Cali is a happy, cuddle girl with a 'present' temperament.  She enjoys her people and her doggie friends.  She has one of those magnetic ways about her where you just like to be around her happy energy.  She thinks she is a "watch dog" is when she has pups...she is a good mom and she will growl when strangers/visitors to "protect" her pups and all the while her tail is wagging at a rapid pace.  We think she is silly.  She wouldn't hurt a fly but she will be heard.  She is sired out of BIS BISS AM CAN CH Winterwind's Glenn Plaid (Belquest).  He has has won multiple shows including the Westminster Best of Breed and Sporting Group IV Winner.  Cali has the conformation matching these lines.  She has developed beautifully with a long neck, well-positioned shoulders and developed chest, nice tail set and good bone all complimented by her beautiful rear angles.   Her conformation along with her kind and loving temperament make Cali a prize girl.  

 Cali will be paired with Leaguer in 2013 for a litter of black and chocolate puppies.
