We have waited a long time for Clair to come into our lives -- 10 or 15 years, to be exact! It has been a long search for a small bitch out of Standard Manchester breeding to incorporate into our breeding program. Éclair (aka Clair) fits the bill and more! Sired by the beautiful 2019 US National Specialty winner, BISS Am GChS Medley's Just Reward, CGC, out of the lovely Am GCh Levendi's Gentle Rain of Earendil, she brings together some of our very favourite Standard Manchester lines. in fact, her grandfather, MBISS/MBIS Am GCH Medley's War Hunt, remains one of my all time favourite Standard Manchesters in breed history. Additionally, if you search 3 or 4 generations back in Clair's pedigree, you'll also find a wee dash of some familiar Toy lines as well.
I am so thrilled to be taking this exciting journey with my dear friend, Carolyn Horowitz (Rustic Lane) and we are grateful to Christina Caridis (Levendi) for allowing Clair to join our extended family. We look forward to watching her mature in the coming years and to seeing what she will produce. Our collective hope is to continue to promote genetic diversity while also benefitting from some of Clair's wonderful attributes.
