Bred by Nancy and Lynn Westbrook, co-owned by Nancy Westbrook and Susan Dunivant, Emma is our first "pupsicle"!
Emma is the product of a frozen semen breeding between our Am/Can. Ch. Elf Loch Where There's Smoke, R.O.M. and Nancy and Lynn Westbrook's Am/Can Ch. Everglory's American Dream, R.O.M. The dam, "Norma Jean" was a specialty winner and a #1 Kerry bitch during her successful show career, which included numerous group wins and placements. After this brilliant career, she became the dam of specialty winners, and another #1 Kerry bitch, Ch. Everglory's Miss Savannah, who was also a National Futurity winner.
Emma fell right into her mother and father's footsteps and is also a multiple group winner, this in limited showing. She was Best of Opposite sex to the ultimate Montgomery County BIS winner in 2000. Emma is rather unique in that she is one of only a few living Kerry Blue Terriers boasting the great Ch. Kerryglen's Quinn O'Grady within 5 generations (great-great grandfather) and those other's are half-brothers. Her dam, "Norma Jean" out of Ch. Hi-Crest Glory Molly Be High, C.D.can boast of her share of top Kerries in the pedigree as well from the Glory lines and her sire, Ch. Tontine's American Hero was a Montgomery County Best of Breed.
With very special show dogs who have also been very special producers in her pedigree, Emma will hopefully prove to be worthy of such an illustrious family by following her successful ring career with an equally successful career in the whelping box this fall
Emma presented these 3 girls, 3 boys (Thanks Feeney!) in February 2002. Thanks to Anne-Marie Flynn Fierke and Linda Mancuso for assisting! Photo of Ch. Elf Loch Robaire The Phoenix (sire) below...
