Ch. Star Ursa Minor JH, aka Dipper, was a littermate to Torque (see Torque's page), and made quite a name for herself as well. She earned several points from the 6-9 mo puppy class, and 2 supported entry majors out of the 9-12 mo puppy class. She easily finished her Ch by 19 mos old, very sporadically shown. She won Best Bitch in the 2006 Western Futurity, ably handled by Pam Lambie. She earned multiple BOB over top 10 competition, breeder handled. She earned her JH, after only 3 lessons in the field, and novice owner handled. She made an appearance at the Western Maturity in 2007, and made the cut to the last 5 bitches at 5 weeks (and very visibly) pregnant. Dipper was 25 1/4" tall, had very smooth shoulders, clean movement, gorgeous head and outstanding temperament. She was truly an ambassador for this breed. But most of all, she was Kim's best friend and constant companion. Her sudden, unexpected passing leaves a painful scar. A photo gallery of Dipper appears below.
Dipper had one litter, bred to BIS BISS BIF BIM Ch. Bzyfeet American Idol, aka Clay. This litter of 4 was born on Nov 20, 2007. All 4 puppies finished, 3 with specialty and/or supported entry majors, and 2 with multiple BOB over specials. Click here to see the puppies.
