1989 - 2000. Romeo is our foundation stud. Romeo hit the Borzoi world at the 1990 BCOA in the 6-9mth puppy classes, and became one of North America's top borzoi. He produced his best when linebred back to the line of his grandsire, Ch. Majenkir Sandstone. Romeo was low thyroid, eyes normal.
A Romeo daughter SONORA: Ch. Po Dusham Scarlett Ribbons. Another breeding back to a Sandstone granddaughter produced Sonora. She topped her sire by taking Best in Futurity and Best Puppy in Specialty at the 2000 BCOA Nationals, and the following year, RWB at the 2001 BCOA Nationals. Bred by Alice and Dick Reese, Sonora was a stud fee puppy, owned by Rhanda Glenn, Cherie Hunchak and Frank Murphy.
When bred to Ch. Sylvan Artesian, Sonora produced a wonderful litter: "JEWEL" (Ch. Elance Reflection of Faith) came to Elance. Before tragically losing her, Jewel was a star - finishing her Championship with a Group 1st from the puppy classes, winning multiple Best Puppy in Groups back to back....
"FAITH" (BISS Ch. Reflections I'm the Lucky One) went on to take Best of Breed at the 2010 BCOA National Specialty!
