Needless to say, I
am very proud of
what "Miss Sexi Lexi"
(a nick name given
to her by her many
friends in the show
accomplished at such
a young age. Lexus
will take a year off
to grow up but
watch for her in the
ring in 2012.
2012 has been quite a
year for Lexus. With every breed win, she placed in the group,
undefeated. In only 3 weekends out she acquired 4 Group Firsts, 5
Group Seconds and a Group 4th.
This autumn, Lexi will embark
on a new adventure. Motherhood. She will be bred to Donald, Am. Can.
Ch. Bushwhacker’s Cor Leonis when she comes into season. I am very
excited about this litter as the Horsley line dates back to the 60’s
Lexus will take the next couple years off and
just be a house mouse, making way for other dogs and her puppies to
prove themselves in the show ring.
