Can. Ch. Aotearoa Emrys Mango
born March 7, 2005
Sire:- Can.Ch. Aotearoa Manuka 2nd Dam:- Can.Ch. Aotearoa Mata Hari at Emrys
bred, owned, and handled by Barbara N Daley co-breeder/owner Lois A Freedman
Mati did have a 3rd litter, and this time we had 4 lovely girls to choose from, and 2 very nice boys as well. Mango had a certain "sparkle" right from the start set her apart from her sisters, and she also had the white front paws I love so much. There was never any doubt she would be our "keeper".
Mango finished her Championship by 18 months of age with 2 Best Puppy in Group and 2nd in Adult Group wins along the way. Her consistent Specialty wins in Canada and the USA include:-

1st 12 to 18 months Regular classes IWANE 2006 - Judge Patricia V Trotter, USA who described Mango thus:-
" The winner is a correct package with a good front and excellent legs and bone. She is nice over the top, with well let down hocks that contribute to her effortless gait. Her proper head and eye are also among her assets".
3rd Bred by Exhibitor bitches IWCC Mid Canada 2006 - breeder/judge Sorcha R Wild, UK
3rd Bred by Exhibitor bitches IWCC National 2006- breeder/ judge Elizabeth C Murphy, Ireland
2nd Novice bitches IWADV 2006- Gretchen Bernardi, USA, whose critique gave me a chuckle. Many judges consider Mango's naturally high head carriage one of her greatest assets. Gretchen described Mango thus:-
"This is another wonderful bitch - strong, substantial and shapely . She has a slightly upright neck, a characteristic that her owner/breeder and I have a friendly disagreement about, but which I find incorrect. This bitch's neck was quite strong, but set on too high, and slightly exaggerated. Nevertheless she has strength and quality to spare."
Mango's first litter is due March 2, 2008, sired by the exciting young Manuka son Aotearoa Lee Ridge Tote, "Salt".
Mango at 2+ weeks, our keeper for sure. How could I resist those white paws?
