Fizz just had to stay at Foxbarton - pick of Bliss's 9 lovely pups by Moet, she simply stole my heart. She's a wonderful Collie and she adores her dam, Bliss - they play noisy games of tuggy together when we're trying to watch the TV, but they are much better entertainment!
Fizz's first weekend in the showring, at 6 months, she won 2 Puppy and 2 Junior classes, Reserve Best of Breed and Puppy Group 3. Still only 6 months old, I took her up to Scotland and was delighted John Ritchie gave her 2nd in Minor Puppy Bitch and 3rd in both Puppy Bitch and Novice Bitch at the Scottish BC Club Champ Show, qualifying her for both Crufts and Puppy of The Year, 2007.
Within 6 months, Fizz won Best Puppy In Breed at 23 shows; won 2 Pastoral Puppy Groups and 11 Puppy Group places. At 9 months, she came 4th at Crufts, under breed specialist, Judith Gregory. Fizz's dam, my Bliss, also got a 2nd in her class in the afternoon, and her half sister, my Jazz, won her class for the 3rd year in succession.
Fizz's Junior Warrant came at just 13 months of age, when she won Junior Bitch at Bath Championship Show. A very special JW for me, as she's the 3rd generation of Foxbartons I have bred and shown to their JWs. She started 2008 taking Best of Breed at Boston Championship Show. Judge Barbara Walker-Smith said in her critique: ""Post Graduate Bitch, 1st Tiller's Foxbarton Lady Chandon, Bl & W, the star of the day. Lovely bitch in sparkling condition, good head, dark eye, excellent balance length to height, showed and moved well, BOB".
Judge Jane Cresswell awarded Fizz her 1st Reserve Challenge Certificate at Midland Counties Championship Show, 2007, after she'd won both the Yearling Bitch Class and the Post Graduate Bitch Class (125 bitches entered). Her 2nd Reserve CC was awarded after she won the Limit Bitch Class at Southern Counties Championship Show 2008, under Judge Sonya Saxby (106 bitches entered), so Fizz has qualified for Border Collie of The Year for the 2nd year running.
On the same day that Fizz's baby brother, Blaze, won his first Reserve Challenge Certificate, Fizz clocked up her 100th win in the breed ring, taking the Limit Bitch class at the City of Birmingham Championship show. At the end of 2008, Fizz gave me a brilliant day at South West Essex Canine Association Show in December, winning the Open Breed Class, then Best Of Breed, then the Pastoral Group, and finally Reserve Best In Show. What a day!
At Wessex BC Show in May 09, Fizz went Res Best Bitch In Show. Judge Richard Kinsey wrote in his critique: ""Limit Bitch, 1st Tiller's Foxbarton Lady Chandon, very good type, strong yet feminine all through, balanced angulation, correct outline that pleases the eye. Good head, dark eyes and ears set apart and used well. Deep chest and good spring of rib, straight front legs, best of feet, good pasterns. Just coming into her prime, well muscled rear and good turn of stifle, allowing her the easy, ground covering, effortless pace called for. In clean jacket and overall body tone. Res Best Bitch."
Coming back into coat in July 2009, Fizz won Limit Bitch at the East Of England Championship Show, then won it again, the following weekend, at the National Working & Pastoral Breeds Championship Show, this time going on to take her 3rd Reserve Challenge Certificate under Annette Tasker (Goytre), qualifying her for Border Collie Of The Year for the 3rd year in succession.
Then at the BC Club Of Wales Championship Show, judge Terry Colwell (Pastraka) awarded Fizz her 1st Challenge Certificate. And the icing on the cake - she went on to take Best of Breed and Best In Show under Pam Etheridge (Tefryn). Still on a roll, Fizz won her 4th Limit Bitch Class and her 4th Res Challenge Certificate at West of England BC Club Championship Show, under judge Chris Chapman.
Fizz gave birth to 9 beautiful puppies, on 2nd Dec 2012, sired by Aust Ch Sh Ch Danari De Beers. Pick of litter was Zac, Foxbarton Ace Of Diamonds JW, whom I’ve been showing for his owner. (See his page). Back in the ring in January 2011, Fizz went Res Best Bitch In Show at Southern BC Club. But I still didn't have a bitch pup from her, so Fizz had another litter in April 2012, by Sh Ch Janbell Jamieson JW. Pick of litter was a boy pup, and I just couldn't live without him, so kept my lovely Rex, Foxbarton Kings Ransom JW (see his page).
Fizz's 3rd and final litter was sired by Littlethorn Maclaren, a gorgeous Tricolour dog. Fizz's 8 beautiful puppies included a striking Tricolour bitch pup for me. She's called Foxbarton Lady Penelope, better known as Darcy, and she has her own page.
I'm so grateful to all the judges who have thought so highly of Fizz and given her top honours. I'm so proud of her. A joy to show, she's even better to cuddle and she's always first to join me on my recliner chair...... that is, when I get time to sit down!
My beautiful, darling Fizz was taken from me, much too early, just before her 11th Birthday, which broke my heart. Thank Heaven her legacy lives on in her wonderful offspring, and theirs. She was my cuddle-collie of all time, and I miss her so.
