Ch. Applehill's Ultimate Decision x Ch. Karchaus Peg O My Heart

(Tess is a recessive longhair. Both sire and dam are smooth)

Tess came to live with us after the loss of her breeder, Jack Karcher. Jack was my very closest friend. He died on March 24, 2003 of a heart attack at the age of 52. I miss him so very much.

Tess is from Jack's last breeding will be shown and always loved to his honor and memory. Tess is a clown and fits in with the Amtekel pack like a dream.

Tess has been appreciated by breeder judges and all breed judges alike! Her exquisite type - very long and low stationed, short rear pasterns, beautiful forechest and front assembly has been recognized and rewarded. She won both majors at specialties by the age of 11 months, and she just got better as she grew up!
