Li’l’s Story

Tiny Beginnings

Born:  4/17/2009
Weight:  3 ounces!!!
Sire:  Ch Bleugras Don’t Think Twice
Dam:  Ch Bleugras Sweeter Than Wine
Pedigree

There she was—looking like she was wearing a teeny-tiny little “hoodie”, and fitting all curled up in the palm of my hand.  She was strong and determined and took to my feeding her along with her Mom (when I moved all the brothers and sisters away from a teat!).  Such a little bit of a thing she was!! So of course I named her “Li’l”! And just look at those markings!!  I hadn’t seen a GSP marked like that since 1973 – my beautiful Ch Bleugras Music Makin’ Molly! Yep, there she was, all liver and white and not exactly what you are wishing for in a future show dog!

Too little to get her tail docked with the others at 2 days old, Li’l had to wait until she was 2 WEEKS OLD and as big then as a newborn!!  Li’l thrived and grew – but still only a third the size of her littermates at 8 weeks of age! 

Always the center of attention,  when Li’l entered a room if you did not acknowledge her presence, she would strut around and “rooo” at you until being properly addressed!!!   (Which she still does to this day!!)

At 8 weeks of age, while Lil’s brothers and sisters were going to their new homes, Li’l had already found her place deep within my heart and I kept her — markings and all!!!

October 17, 2009  Li’l’s 6 Month Birthday

This was Li’l’s first real Dog Show in Springfield, Illinois – a major entry – and Li’l won Winners Bitch for a 3-pt Major!!!  An astute judge who could see beyond the unique coloration of the beautiful “Li’l” to what “lies beneath”!!!

Optical Illusions - You See WHAT?

Many judges see Li’l as “too little” – but she is a whopping 22 1/2” !! Perfectly within the GSP Standard!  She is balance personified with gorgeous neck flowing into lovely smooth laid-back shoulders.  She is perfectly sound coming and going (just look at that pure white ticking on her hocks!) – and breathtaking on her ground covering side movement!   Proper tailset and perfect carriage!  Yes, Folks, she’s got it ALL!

May 13, 2010 GSPCA NATIONAL SPECIALTY PUPPY SWEEPSTAKES

Li’l met 114 of the best young GSPs Nationwide, Canada, and Mexico at the National competition in Gainesville, Florida.  Our judge was the highly respected breeder in her own right and National GSPCA Breed Education chair, an expert at interpreting the Standard and instructing newly aspiring judges, Ms. Patte Titus.  Ms. Titus  chose BLEUGRAS LI’L PINK CADILLAC, who in her opinion best personified the GSP Standard as “the Best of the Best”, and awarded her BEST IN SWEEPSTAKES 2010! Handling Li’l , was the young “Rising Star”, Ms. Kayla Rost, who later that week went on to win NATIONAL GSPCA BEST JUNIOR HANDLER 2010!!!!

P.S.  LI’L has been used in GSP Education Seminars and Slideshows !
