Ch. Watch Me Ms Annie Oakley, SC ROM "ANNIE" 11-01-94 to 07-23-09
(Am. Mex. Ch. Watch Me Mr. Willy McCoy x Ch. Watch Me Ms. Firecracker JC ROM)
Annie was bred by Leslie Vasquez - Headliner Hounds and Kathy Thomas - Watch Me Whippets

I fell in love with Annie the first time I saw her as a 4 week old puppy.
She was the first of 6 in her litter of 11 to finish her championship. (Two more were only needing a major when their owner passed away.)
Her beautiful front and flawless movement helped her to defeat BIS, SBIS, and Group Winners along the way.
Annie is a Breed winner both in the ring and on the field.

Annie introduced us to the world of dog show conformation and became a wonderful foundation for us.

3-30-1997 (Easter Sunday) Annie whelped a litter of 1 sired by Ch Oakhurst Midas Touch.
Esprit's Passion Play SC (Zoe)is pointed and loved lure coursing.
Zoe was the resident "Fun Police" here for 16 1/2 years, making sure all the kids learned manners and noone ran too fast in the yard!
Zoe's daughter, Quila, sired by Ch Esprit Catch A Rising Star SC, is following in her footsteps and LOVES to chase the bunny!

2-01-1999 Annie whelped the "Las Vegas Shows" litter of 5 sired by Multi SBIS Ch. Chelsea Drakkar of Oxford JC FCh ROMX
Ch Esprit Spellbound and Ch Esprit Catch A Rising Star both finished with Supported entry 5pt majors.The boys were a multiple Best in Show Brace, including Best Brace at the AWC National Specialty!.
Ch Esprit's Mystere finished with 4 majors in just a few months of showing - on 3 different occasions one of her brothers was also awarded Winner's Dog

3-25-2001 Annie whelped the "Big Band Litter" of 6 sired by SBIS Ch. Festiva's Knickerbocker ROMX.
Ch Esprit Dreaming Out Loud (the only male) finished his title with 4 majors and 3 BOB's at 15 mos of age.
Ch Esprit Sunrise Serenade was the first of the 5 girls to complete her Championship title.
Ch. Esprit Sweet Georgia Brown completed her title with 3 majors.
Esprit Moonlight Serenade had 14 points including 2 5pt majors - the first a Supported Entry win with 51 bitches!
Esprit This Joint Is Jumpin' SC was also pointed. A leg injury ended her show and coursing careers :-).
Esprit String of Pearls was pointed and loved her life in North Carolina with her co-owners.

7-16-2003 Annie whelped the "Medieval" litter of 4 sired by Ch Khiva's Highest Accolade.
With so many wonderful Annie daughters we decided to keep a boy, Ch Esprit Dark Knight, from her last litter.
Handsome as they come, Lance was a standout from the moment he could walk.
He joined 1/2 brothers Riley & Max with his own AWC Supported Entry 5 point major.
