Ch. Kaliphi Jadzia (Dax)
Dax was our first special, or finished champion. Winning the first group placement for Sendero at our hometown show was, for us, as exciting as winning a Best in Show! She and Tommy made a great team and we will always be grateful to her for teaching us the ins and outs of specialling a dog.
Dax really preferred the couch dog routine, so you never knew who would show up in the show ring—Dax, the show dog or Dax, the slug! While her career was spotty at best, she nevertheless garnered multiple group placings to her credit.
Motherhood was Dax's specialty. She was a breeder's dream, as she truly loved being pregnant, whelmed her puppies quickly (during the day!) and enjoyed showing her babies off to all comers.
Dax produced 9 puppies—7 handsome boys and 2 beautiful girls. Two of Dax's sons went on to become American Champions with one male winning a Specialty show and an All Breed Best in Show. Dax also has to her credit 2 Canadian Champions.
Dax's daughter, Scarlett, carries on with us today.
