We lost our ray of sunshine, our "cruise director", our powerhouse of happiness on September 11, 2023 and way sooner than our hearts could have ever prepared for. All of us are blessed to have had Nita in our hearts and breeding program.
Our “fawn family project”, we had not originally intended on keeping Nita, but we are so glad we did. Although her sister Misty was Best Opposite Sex Beginner Puppy at the ABdFC National Specialty in October 2013, Nita’s first time in the ring had many jaws dropping. Her balanced movement, reach, drive and her delightful smile engaged us all.
In March 2014, Nita made us extremely proud by going Best Puppy In Show at the Kern County Kennel Club under judge Rita Biddle. Nita earned her first major in Albuquerque in early May 2014, but she surprised us all by going Winners Bitch for her second major and Best Opposite Puppy at the Southern California Bouvier des Flandres Club specialty under judge Joan Luna-Liebes.
Nita went on to win her 3rd major in December at the Shoreline Cluster in Costa Mesa, CA under judge Dr. Klaus Anselm and finished her championship on March 28 with her 4th major going Winners Bitch under judge Jon Cole at the Kern County Kennel Club and exactly one year from when she was awarded Best Puppy In Show.
As of Fall of 2015, Nita showed her heart out and was awarded Select Bitch at the 2015 ABdFC National Specialty under judge Mr. Stephen Gladstone. Yup, our "fawn family project" continued to prove that she had more than we ever imagined for the breed going forward and our breeding program.
When not in the ring, Nita plays ball outside much in the same style as her father Garrison. Unlike her father, she’s not partial to any particular ball. In fact, if no ball is available, she’ll happily choose a pinecone to serve as her toy of choice. She also loves playing with our Scotties and practicing her herding skills whether we want her to or not.
Nita earned her Canine Good Citizen title in October 2015, welcomed a single baby boy puppy into the world November 18, 2015, won an Award of Merit at the Southern California Bouvier des Flandres Club specialty on May 26, 2016, finished her Grand Championship the following day on May 27, 2016. We chose to breed her again to Mary i hopes of more Bennett-like puppies and on October 25, 2016, she welcomed a litter of 9 puppies into the world - 3 boys and 6 girls. She then had 10 puppies on May 21, 2017 - 6 boys and 4 girls. She was loved and owned by Jim & Chan Kuhn and Rod and Pilar and lived full time in southern California at the Ottcienda.
