Am/Can Ch. Westar's Dharma
Magic Winds Stormtide x BISS Ch Fairwyn Westar Essence ROM
OFA Good -- CERF Normal

 

Dharma... one of the prettiest girls around!
Finished her Am Championship with three 5 pt majors, including 
a BOB over specials to finish, capped by a Group III,
and her Canadian Championship in a single weekend!

 

Am/Can Ch. Westar's Dharma is owned by Mark Hersman of Westar Shelties, and was a very welcome visitor to our home.  She is a doll to live with (think snuggler and charmer), and after just a couple of shows, was an old pro in the show ring.  She is a lady in every sense of the word, even when she is in a flirtatious, playful mood, which is often. 

Dharma handled herself with dignity and aplomb in a very competitive open sable bitch class at the 2004 ASSA National, and came home to win a very nice 5 point major in the Tanana Valley shows.  She quickly obtained her Canadian title in a single weekend in June.  

We flew down to the Brush Prairie shows in July 2004 where she went RWB twice, out of coat, in hot Northwest competition.  We followed that up with the Cook Inlet KC shows in August, where she attained another five point major under respected breeder judge, Janet Turnage Nahikian.  Way to go, little lady!!!  Not bad for a minimum of showing! 

 

 

Finally, the crème de la crème!  She finished in fine style under Judge James Frederiksen at the Kenai Kennel Club shows, going BOB from the open sable class over five specials, including a top 20 dog!!  She topped off that spectacular win with a Group Three that day, behind a BIS collie and a BIS border collie making the rounds from the "Lower 48."  

Best of all, in doing so, she made her mother an ROM!  BISS Ch. Fairwyn Westar Essence ROM was reserve winners bitch at the 1998 National, and is one of the most beautiful sheltie bitches of all time, in my opinion.  

Miss Dharma is back home with Mark and his family in California.  We will greatly miss our "Dharmie" ... a truly charming, beautiful representative of the breed.

Dharma is litter sister to the incomparible BISS Ch. Westar's Dynasty (Blake, 2001 ASSA RWD), and had never seen a show ring until the end of March 2004 -- we are very proud of her!
