"You can't have
CH Shonleh Singapore Sling
I noticed Singer at a dog show in Portland last
year. When I learned she was still owned by her
breeder, who coincidentally co-bred Mick, I called
her and told her I had fallen in love. On the first
day of the show, she and Mick took Best of Breed and
Best of Opposite.
looked like the king and queen of Norwichdom, and I
was hooked! While Mick is more of a honey color,
Singer is dark red. They compliment each other so
well. She's about six months older than Mick, so she
thinks she can boss him around. Of course, it
Sharon Curry, her owner/breeder put an offer to me
and I accepted wholeheartedly. Now she resides at
Flatbrook, adding a new dimension to our pack.
In October, 2007, Singer had a litter of exceptional
pups. Out of four, two boys/two girls, three are
show quality. Two days before she gave birth, I was
on my way to northern California wine country to
place her in Sharon's expert hands. I was a little
worried, since she looked like she
football and was waddling like a duck. Luckily, I
got her there on time. With a C-Section, Singer
birthed the pups, weighing between 8 and 10 onces.
Average weight of a Norwich pup is 4 ounces.
Singer is a little princess, very girly-girly, but
when challenged, look out! She is an athletic
specimen, who can't resist jumping twice her height
when chow is called. She's a ravenous eater -
anxious to run it off in the yard daily. She, like
Mick is a good hunter, so there's not many mice
showing up in the backyard lately. She likes lizards
too and thinks it's her job to scare off any bird
that happens by.
On February 23, 2008, Singer earned her Championship
in Del Mar, California, led by her wonderful
handler, Amy Rutherford. We couldn't be more proud!
