What can I say about this lovely bitch, she has won so much for us and is such a joy to own. Jazz has competed in Obedience and Club Trials, has also done demonstrations and has proved herself in the show ring. Has many Best Bitches at Championship shows and was the first ever Aussie Bitch to take

Best Bitch and Reserve Best of Breed
'Crufts' 2001.
This the first year Aussies were at Crufts.

Jazz's offspring have already following in her footsteps with great success. Mr. Bumble, Book of Dreams, Black Russian taking Best in Shows and many Group 1 placings and championship placings. Night Flight not only doing well Showing but also C.Dex,U.Dex and W.D in trials.
Now their offspring are also doing well in Showing and working this includes Toffee Crisp, Dream Machine, Pillow Talk, Blue Genes,Logans Run to name but a few. What a wonderful dynasty this bitch has produced. She is still going strong at just over 13 years old. Loved by every one who meets her.

2004 Jazz, Best Veteran in Show and Best Brood Bitch under Linda Wilson (USA), at ASCUK Show.

Best Bitch Shepalian Night Flight to Moortime

It is with great sadness that we had to have Jazz put to sleep to avoid further suffering. Up until the end she was very much the boss of the house. Never nasty, loved every one and everone loved her. Our only consulation is that she left a legacy in her children and grandchildren. Much loved and will be much missed. 7-9-94 to 17-3-08
