CH Nelum-Himalis Daphne CGN X Nappyroots Afrika Bambaataa WC
We will be having one litter of Barbet puppies in 2013 with our special momma CH Nelum-Himalis Daphne CGN, who is the mother of our 2011 Nappyroots B litter. The stud Nappyroots Afrika Bambaataa WC and who goes by Obie, is the pick male from our first litter of pups so this is a very exciting breeding for us. Daphne was bred to Obie in March and we are expecting puppies mid-May. We are currently accepting reservations for this litter.
CH NELUM-HIMALIS DAPHNE CGN was born on May 17, 2009 in Finland. She is one of seven puppies to Nelum-Himalis Braise (FI) & sire Ulysse di Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco (FR). She is a stunning black colour with a spiral curl coat which is quite manageable. Daphne weighs 45lbs/21kg and stands at 20½”/52cm. She is CKC registered with a 3-generation FCI pedigree and AKC FSS registered. Daphne’s eyes have been CERF’d NORMAL (2013, 2010), hips are OFA GOOD (A/A) and elbows OFA NORMAL. She is registered with the Canine Health Information Center (CHIC).
Daphne is a CKC Canadian Champion and a Canine Good Neighbour (CGN). She carries the rare fawn gene and was the mother of the first platinum sand female Nappyroots Brin d’Amour and fawn with sand markings male BPISS CH Nappyroots Buju Banton CGN Barbet in North America. She is a shy girl who loves children, other animals and is crazy about cuddling. Daphne is the ‘princess’ around these parts, who enjoys her therapy visits to the old age home and will soon start some obedience trials.
NAPPYROOTS AFRIKA BAMBAATAA WC was born on October 25, 2010 right here in our home. Born to CH Satine Biscay’s Precious Pearl CGN WC (CA) and sire CH Chmurnik z Górki Podduchownej CGN (PL), Obie is one of eight puppies….the first we have ever kept and pick male in the litter! Obie is co-owned and lives with our good friends Paul & Kim Hunter in Hamilton, Ontario. Obie weighs 53lbs/24kg and stands at 22″/56cm. His eyes have been CERF’d with a small iris ppm (2013), hips OFA GOOD (A/A) and elbows OFA NORMAL. He is CKC registered with a 3-generation pedigree and registered with the Canine Health Information Center (CHIC). Obie has his DNA profiled with the AKC.
Obie is a a natural hunter and is trained & trialed at hunt tests. Obie earned his Working Certificate title at the Labrador Retriever Club of Northwestern Ontario in Thunder Bay on September 4, 2011. He is now the 3rd Barbet in Canada, the 2nd Canadian bred, and the 1st male to have his WC at such a young age of just 10 months old. Obie was trained & handled by Paul. Look out for these two at this year’s Junior Hunt & WCI trials.
This is the first time Obie is used for a breeding and we are really excited to see what kind of puppies he produces. One day we hope he will be a great proven stud like his dad Chmurnik. Obie is very obedient, playful & extremely goofy. He is the typical male who always gets everyone smiling.
