"Chase" has made an impressive impact on the Shih Tzu breed
in a very short time. Not only is he a Multi Best In Show Winner and Specialty
winner himself but he has produced many Best In Show and Specialty winning children
"Chase" was not the product of an accidental breeding but was
a result of a conscious effort to bring in some new blood to the Wenrick line
by searching out dogs that were similar in type as ours and had similar dogs
in the background. Kathy Kwait's dogs most suited our needs and her pedigrees
had similar dogs as the pedigrees of our best producing bitches.
We leased Am Ch Tu Chu's Sky's The Limit and brought him to
Canada where we finished his Canadian Championship in short order and bred him
selectively to some of our bitches. "Chase's" dam was Can Ch. Wenrick's M's Fergie
Symetrick also the product of a lease arrangement, when we borrowed her sire,
Pat Miller's Can Ch. Woodsmoke With Style and bred him to a linebred Wenrick
bitch. This was a distant line breeding as Pat Miller acquired her first Shih
Tzu from us and has always been a firm believer that soundness can be found in
dogs of good type.
" Chase " has sired 40 Canadian Champions and 15 American Champions
as well as many foreign Champions. He has also produced five different Best In
Show kids and numerous specialty winners. The most important word to describe
his offspring is consistent. In the last five years his children have been in
the major ribbons at the National specialties in both the USA and Canada. They
all have beautiful, luxurious coats on top of sound bodies, typical teacup tails,
flowing movement and winning temperaments.
The first daughter to take the spotlight at the American Nationals
was Am Can Ch. Wenrick's Whispering Willows who
was Best In Sweeps at the 1991 ASTC National in
Oregon. . At the 1992 ASTC National in Michigan
"Devon", Am Can BISS Ch. Wenrick's Divine Rainbows
was Winners Bitch. The following year another "Chase"
son , Am/Can BIS Ch. Ashbury's Rainbow At Wenrick
was Best Of Winners at the National in California.
In Florida at the 1994 ASTC National Best Of Winners
went to AmCanLux Ch. Wenrick's Calling All Rainbows.
The same year another "Chase" daughter Am Ch. Shansi
Asplundl Bei Jing owned by Pat Martello ("Chase's"
biggest fan ) was Best of Opposite Sex. At the 1995
ASTC National in Utah Can Ch Bei Jing's Intrepid
Shansi was Reserve Winners Dog and another "Chase"
son, Am/Can BISS BIS Ch. Wenrick's On A Rainbow
Cruise won the first Award Of Merit. Too numerous
to mention are the many children and now grandchildren
who consistently share the limelight as strong contenders
in any classes where his progeny are easily recognized
including Westminister where "Chase" as well as
two of his daughters have received Awards of Merit
and where a "Chase" grandson "Bad" was Best of Breed.
All of the above dogs have also been major winners
at the various regional specialties throughout Canada
and the USA.
We are proud to have bred and own "Chase" and look forward to
his kids continuing to ' chase rainbows" as we are
looking forward to a new era of "Chase" kids. We
would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone
for their support, kind words and compliments over
