CH SYDMAR THE HEARTLESS WENCH
CH SYDMAR THE HEARTLESS WENCH - (Ch. Pipeaway The Ruthless Rake x Ch. Sydmar Crystalline) (4/3/89 – 10/28/02) – Her sire was a dashing black and white Group placing English import who became an APC Top Producer with 27 American Champions. Her dam, also Group placing, was the result of judicious inbreeding on an outcross to famous English and American bloodlines tracing back to SIX Hall Of Fame luminaries: Ch. Counterpoint’s Lord Ashley, Ch. Shelbark’s Twenty Carats, Ch. Finefields Cover Girl, Ch. Elstone Citadel, Ch. Drumgannon Dreadnought and Ch. Governor Moscow. Orange and white like her dam, “Blair” was shown to her championship by her breeder-owner, Paula Nykiel and to Best In Sweepstakes and Best Bred By Exhibitor at the 1990 APC National Specialty. Through collaboration with Sally Barton, Blair moved to Coralwood to be bred to Ch. Sydmar Coralwoods Grand Slam on a co-ownership basis. After the litter was whelped in 1993, as mutually agreed, she became Sally’s outright. The breeding to “Mickey” was so successful that it was twice repeated, resulting in 22 of her 31 champions (the other nine by English import Ch. Pipeaway Billy Bingo). With Champion #30 in 1999, Blair became APC’s new All-Time Top Producing Pointer Dam, now totaling 31 Champions from four litters, all breeder or owner handled. Numerous sons and daughters have won top honors at shows and specialties and several have become top producers themselves. Not to be outdone by her illustrious offspring, Blair won the 1998 APC Best Veteran Bitch and Best Brood Bitch at the same time her son x Mickey was winning the National Specialty. In 1999 (at age 10), she won APC Best Veteran in Sweepstakes and Best Brood Bitch while her daughter x Billy was winning BOS at the same National. Sally credits her mother, and dog mentor, Ruth Barton with much of Blair’s well-being and success, as she resided with her (when she wasn’t in the whelping box) and lived the life of luxury that she so deserved. Blair was named Top Sporting Dam by Dog World in April 2008.
