our oldest female we got from kris hill,
one of the first SMCNA breeders
who has helped us with our testing, training &
Nixie has whelped a total of 29 puppies for our "B", "C", "E" ,"G", "M" and "Q" litters.
Nixie's dam, VC Looses Jaika, is a Danish import and her sire, Jerry vom Buchenberg (Zip) was imported from Germany by Tom McDonald. Both Jaika and Zip have qualified for the SMCA Hall of Fame. Nixie scored a 112 Prize I in her NAVHDA Natural Ability Test at the age of 6 months and she scored a 201 Prize I in the NAVHDA Utility Test to qualify her for the 2016 Invitational in Iowa and the 2017 Invitational in Ohio. Four of the "C" litter pups she produced earned a perfect score of 112 Prize I in their Natural Ability Test earning Nixie a NAVHDA & SMCA Breeder's Award. Six of her "E" Litter pups Prized in the NA Test before they were 11 months old earning Nixie her second NAVHDA & SMCA Breeder's Award.
Nixie Rae earned a score of 179 but she did not pass the Invitational due to earning a score of 2 in backing and field steadiness. In October of 2016 Nixie Rae earned another 201 Prize I in the Utility Test so we will run her in the 2017 Invitational that will be held in Ohio.
