Nikki was my foundation bitch out of English bloodlines. She was 20.12" tall & pure white with a long, dense coat & dark black pigment. She had a true wedge-shaped head with lips that curled up into the proper Samoyed "smile".
Together we accomplished many "firsts".
My first breed Championship at 14 months old. Shown as a CH. only 5 times she won Best of Breed 5 times over Champions, some top winning Samoyeds. She also took a Working Group 4, all owner handled.
My first dog to obtain the Utility Dog title. She went on to become a two time SCA National Specialty High In Trial Winner.
My first dog to do herding she surprised everyone displaying strong herding instinct which she has passed on to consecutive generations.
My first agility dog she quickly obtained her novice, open & excellent titles in short order despite all the errors made by her novice handler!
But most of all Nikki was a true embassador for the breed. Everyone who came to my house wanted to take her home. Strangers were just friends she hadn't met yet.
Nikki produced one litter of 4 boys & 1 girl (Celine). Of two shown both quickly gained their Championships. Also both have OFA - Excellent hip ratings.
She has passed down her beautiful type, excellent health, trainability & temperament to the generations that have come after her. They are her legacy.
