21.5.05 AT LENKO'S FIRST SHOW AT THE TENDER AGE OF JUST 3 MONTHS AND TWO DAYS LENKO WINS ***BABY IN GROUP*** UNDER ACT JUDGE MRS COWIE. WHAT A GREAT START TO HIS SHOW CAREER!
FINALLY HE IS HERE!!!!
For ten years Peter and I have been wanting and waiting for the right liver nose male, finally he has arrived. I would like to thank Sharron Taylor of Usakose Kennels for entrusting us with another puppy from her excellent breeding. Five years ago we bought our Tayla BISS Ch. Usakose Taylared Success (AI) from Sharron and we have had wonderful success in and out of the showring with her.
Lenko's Sire is Ch. Isilwane Quidditch aka (Potter)
Lenko's Dam is BISS Ch. Usakose Success By Design (AI) "Murphy" (Murphy is Tayla's litter sister)
"Potter" has been awarded Class in Shows at both RR Specialties (National included) & All Breeds Shows. At 12 months of age had 160points towards his Australian Champion Title.
"Potter's" dam is the well know "Leelu" (Aust.Ch Camelot's The Fifth Element ET (Imp USA) *Liver nose* who herself is a BISS winner, BIS Hound Club winner, Multiple Best Gaited at Specialty level and also Best Head at Specialty Level.
"Potter's" sire "Jake" (Ch.Rhodepark Mi Impact) is also a Multiple Class in Show All Breeds and Specialty winner.
"Murphy" *Liver nose* is herself a BISS winner and she has won Res CC's at Royals, Best Head and Best Ridge at Specialty level as well as Multiple Dam & Progeny classes at specialty level.
"Murphy's" dam is the well know "Tubby" (Ch. Usakose Flyin First Class) who is a Multiple BISS winner.
"Tubby's" sire is the exceptional "Jag" (Ch. Caprivi Inside Edge CDX ADM ET JDX *ROM*) also a BIS & BISS winner.
"Tubby's" dam is the *Liver nose* "Corky" (RUBISS Ch. Usakose Town Temptress *ROM*).
"Murphy's" sire is Am.Ch. Mbada's Mhondoro of Iskandar TT (USA) "Leo" who through the use of frozen semen has sired 5 litters here in Australia producing 11 Australian Champions, 1 Grand Champion, Multi BIS & BISS winners as well as multiple gait, head and ridge classes at Specialty level.
"Leo's" sire is the well documented *Liver nose* Am.Ch. Rob-Norms Shara G Dagga himself also a Multiple BISS winner.
We believe that both "Murphy" and "Leelu" are the only two *Liver Nose* RR Bitches in Australia to have had BISS wins under South African Breed Specialists, namely Mrs Janet Wang (Nomvuyo) and Mr Richard van Aken (Cartouche).
"Murphy" has produced 2 Australian Champions, between them accounting for Multiple Class in Show All Breeds & Specialty, Res CC Specialty and Ridge & Head at Specialty level.
Potter and Murphy combines some of the best lines available from "Usakose", "Isilwane", "Caprivi", "Camelot", "Kwetu" and "Rob-Norms" and we are sure that they will have the "Element of Success" that the pedigrees promise.
