Introducing Ishtar...

One of the happy results of Chloe's unexpected "Hidden" litter, was that it meant I was able to fulfil an order for a bitch puppy from Dee Wheatley in the Northern Territory. Dee told me that she had not shown dogs before, and that she wanted a little girl who would primarily be a pet, but whom she could enter in the odd show.

I was hopeful that little "Valley Girl" (as we called her then) would fill the bill. She was a very loving puppy, and from an early age strutted around the backyard in a manner very reminiscent of her father, Jason (aka Aust Gr Ch Baagna Virst Legend). I thought she would make a good first show dog for Dee.

That, Ishtar has certainly proven to be, being a consistent winner at Breed, Group and in Show level, and right up until the time she was retired from the show ring at 7 years of age, was a regular Best in Group winner. But Ishtar is also a wonderful and loving companion for Dee - she even helped Dee's cat raise her last litter of kittens!

On the 4th of March 2000, little Ishtar gave us all a wonderful thrill when she went Runner-up Best Exhibit in Show (from the Minor Puppy Class!) at the Alice Springs Kennel Club Championship show. Then on 22nd September 2001, Ishtar brought up her title in the very best possible way by going BEST IN SHOW under Mr Dennis Glackin (NSW), giving Mzalia another All Breeds Best in Show winner. She added a second All Breeds Best in Show win in August 2003.

Ishtar is an elegant feminine bitch with many nice qualities: the most super-fine coat you could ever hope to see, excellent topline, tailset and length of neck, good shelf, and a lovely light, free-flowing gait.


Puppies

Ishtar is the foundation bitch of Dee's Katimbari Kennel, and has had two litters of puppies.

In 2004 Ishtar produced 3 red and white girls to our own Aust Ch Mzalia Casino Royale.

Aust Ch Katimbari Wild ov Heart (aka Kye ya) was retained by her breeder and has Best Exhibit in Group and Class in Show wins to her credit. In March 2007 she became Katimbari's first homebred Champion.

In July 2006, Ishtar produced her last litter; 1 boy and 3 girls (all red and white) to Wazazi Sheer Genius.

From this litter, Dee retained Aust Ch Katimbari Desert Rose (aka Alla) who has had some wonderful wins during her show career to date. A regular winner at Group and Show level, she was also Opposite Minor Puppy in Show and Best Red & White Coat at the 2007 Basenji Club of Victoria Specialty Show, and placed in the large Intermediate Bitch Class at the 2008 Basenji Club of NSW Specialty.

Ishtar is now spayed, so there will be no more puppies from her.
