I bred Papillons under the Nanstar Prefix for 22 years.
In that time, I raised 28 litters and co-bred a handful more.
From those litters have come 45 Champions.
My first litter included Ch. Nanstar Bright Sierra UD
who was BOB at the PCA National in 1987 and BOS later from Veteran class,
and her sister, Ch. Nanstar's Aquilla CD, DOM who was BOS at the PCA specialty in 1988.
Second generation was Aquilla's son, Ch. Nanstar Moon Shadow CD, SOD,
a group winner who sired Ch. Nanstar Corsair of Car Lee, a multi BIS dog.
Other specialty winners include Ch. Nanstar's Auriga ( GCPC BOB winner )
and Ch. Nanstar Mistral ( PCA WB and later BOS winner ).
My goal in breeding was never to be a "big" breeder and have a lot of dogs.
I only have kept a small number and they are always house pets first, show dogs second.
I think of breeding as a living art form. As with all art, the time comes when one should put down
the paint brush and say that the piece is done--then sit back and enjoy it !
That is the place where I have arrived in my breeding program.
I am sitting back to enjoy the lovely dogs I have created
and will hopefully live with for many years to come !
My last litter was born 11/12/07 -- a single male puppy named :
Nanstar Rainbow's End.
