Champion Statesman's Goldikova CHIC
Sire: Champion Royaile's Willem of Windsor
Dam: Champion Statesman's Think Pink CHIC
It was at the annual national specialty for Welsh springer spaniels in Baltimore in May 0f 2016, that we saw a nice older male Welsh springer called Willem. We liked him, his temperament, but what sold us on him was when both Willem and my boy, Cecil, were rolling around on their backs in the show ring next to each other. This was in the veterans class when there was some down time. Oh, how I wish I had a photo of those two boys.
So plans were made to breed Willem to our girl, Farah, at her next heat. In October of 2016 the litter of three was born, including Chloe. All three were health tested at age two...all with normal results and the two girls received hip ratings of good and the boy a rating of fair.
Chloe did not require many shows in order to complete her championship. It was decided to breed her in October 2018 to Ch. Welford Jesmond Waterfall CHIC, an import from Sweden who had been shown and now lives in the USA. A litter of two boys and six girls was born on January 26, 2019. Hip results at two years of age: seven OFA normal hips with one pup receiving a rating of OFA moderately dysplastic.
Chloe's October 2020 litter, sired by Ch. Statesman's Let It Be "Darwin", will not be old enough to test until October 2022. There were nine pups in that litter, two boys and seven girls.
Chloe should come into heat anytime starting from September through November. We are repeating the breeding to Darwin. Gestation is 9 weeks. Pups go to their new homes between 8-9 weeks of age.
