Our foundation bitch. Though not a prolific producer Angel provided us with two exceptional offspring which are the basis for everything that is Empire today. We were so proud to have her as a member of our household.
Angel had a short and illustrious puppy career, winning a Group 1 at the Dogwood Classic (LMDF) and a couple of Best Puppy in Group. She then took Vicki on her first competitive trip to the US shows. Our first show was the Portland M.S.C. Specialty where she started off the day with a Best Opposite in Sweepstakes and then went on to WB/BW for a 5 point major, from the 9-12 month puppy class, owner handled. What a thrill, what a hook!!! Vicki acquired several more points on her and then she was sent to Brenda Combs for her last major and finishing points.
