U-GrCH.Spirit Rhapsody in Indigo
Introducing "Indigo" - URO1, 2x UKC Best in Show GrandChampion Spirit Rhapsody in Indigo
A most beautiful member of the Spirit family, she is our first homebred puppy, out of two AKC Champion parents. Born on February 6th of 2008, she was one of a spectacular litter of 7 pups. She stood out from the rest with her balanced, light, consistent movement and carriage, her exceptional angles, both front and rear, and pretty head. She has maintained her soundness into adulthood. She has a sweet, never scared attitude, with a little less get- up- and go then her mother,Spirit.
Indigo's stunning father, Am/Can/Int'l Ch. Degana Anything Will Do is oozing with breed type and soundness and has passed that on to Indigo. She has points towards her AKC conformation championship, but we decided that there was more to Indigo than growing hair. She finished her UKC Championship in one weekend, and has two UKC Best in Show awards. She has an excellent nose and has high apptitude for upland bird work and tracking. When out with our trainer, she has high bird drive and loves to flush pheasants! She has titles in obedience, lure coursing, and dabbled in agility. She ran up to 30 miles per week for 3+ yrs when she lived in a guardian home. A dog must be sound to put on that kind of mileage and never get an injury or break down. We consider her to have the ideal body type for a versatile poodle. She had her first wonderful litter of 7 blue and silver pups 10/23/12, and returned to live with us in 2014
Indigo will be retired from breeding after her 2nd and final litter in 2015.
