CHAMPION BIRINCI'S YAHSI
and HIS CHAMPION OFFSPRING

February, 2008

CHAMPION BIRINCI'S YAHSI  CH Birinci's Yahsi
A friend of mine emailed me with some Championship information about the offspring of CHAMPION BIRINCI'S YAHSI. Below are some of the reasons my friend likes YAHSI'S genetics!

My friend said....

Not only did YAHSI WIN BEST OF BREED at WESTMINISTER DOG SHOW this year (Feb, 2008), Yahsi wasn't shown for six months in 2007 and still finished #1 AKC ALL BREED in 2007! And YAHSI, who is the #1 AKC ALL BREED ANATOLIAN IN 2007, 2006 & most of 2005, IS A PROVEN WORKING LIVESTOCK GUARDIAN and ONLY the 5th ANATOLIAN IN AKC SHOW HISTORY to WIN THE WORKING GROUP, which YAHSI has done MULTIPLE TIMES!

YAHSI'S CHAMPION OFFSPRING
CHAMPION INANNA'S BAY BOUDREAU of LUCKY HIT

BOUDREAU (12 months) at the 2005 National Specialty - Handsome x Grace Nov 4, 2004, litter

Maybe YAHSI'S son, CHAMPION INANNA'S BAY BOUDREAU of LUCKY HIT, will be going to Westminister in the future. As you know, in 2007, Boudreau finished #1 AKC BREED, #2 AKC ALL BREED, is a SPECIALTY WINNER and MULTIPLE GROUP PLACING ANATOLIAN (LIKE HIS SIRE) and HAS ALWAYS BEEN SHOWN OWNER HANDLED.

Links to two of Boudreau's Champion littermates, CHAMPION INANNA'S BOTANY BAY of LUCKY HIT (Posey) and CHAMPION INANNA'S BETHANY BAY of LUCKY HIT (Bethany), appear below.
POSEY  - Handsome x Grace Nov 4, 2004, litter
Or maybe we might see Yahsi's daughter, CHAMPION INANNA'S BOTANY BAY of LUCKY HIT (Posey), at Westminister. Posey earned MULTIPLE GROUP PLACEMENTS, OWNER HANDLED, in her show career.

Bethany - Handsome x Grace Nov 4, 2004, litter
Or perhaps we'll see Yahsi's daughter, CHAMPION INANNA'S BETHANY BAY of LUCKY HIT (Bethany), who, like her sire, finished her championship in only TWO SHOW WEEKENDS.

Bethany lives on the ranch, in the pasture 24/7, guarding her goats.

CHAMPION Ashley Manors DivaKIZ LUCKY HIT (KIZZIE) at 12 months
And we might see Yahsi's daughter, CHAMPION ASHLEY MANOR'S DIVAKIZ LUCKYHIT (Kizzie), who was a puppy GROUP placer and in 2007 ranked as the #2 AKC BREED BITCH in the country despite only being shown half the year.

Kizzie lives on the ranch, in the pasture 24/7, guarding her goats, ducks, and geese.
CHAMPION LUCKY HIT Sahara SIPER BEST OF BREED and 4 PT MAJOR at 12 months
And I'd like to see Yahsi's daughter, CHAMPION LUCKY HIT Sahara SIPER, shown at Westminister, since SHE EARNED HER CHAMPIONSHIP FROM THE PUPPY CLASSES while being exclusively handled by a 14 year old junior handler.

Siper lives on the ranch, in the pasture 24/7, guarding her goats, ducks, and geese.
And I expect to see Yahsi's grandson, Champion LUCKY HIT Shadow ZIRVA, shown at Westminster, since ZIRVA EARNED HIS CHAMPIONSHIP IN THREE SHOW WEEKENDS AND BEFORE HE WAS A YEAR AND A HALF OLD.
AT 16 MONTHS, ZIRVA TOOK GROUP 2 HIS FIRST WEEKEND SHOWN AS A CHAMPION SPECIAL
(making his sire, YAHSI, the only GROUP PLACING ANATOLIAN to sire TWO GENERATIONS of GROUP PLACING OFFSPRING to date).

Zirva at four months Zirva at sixteen months


ZIRVA lives on the ranch, in the pasture 24/7, guarding his goats, ducks, and geese.
Then my friend added...

Quite impressive, Erick, especially since all this winning was done within a three and a half year period. And it's especially fantastic because YAHSI is a proven working livestock guardian who consistently wins BIG at dog shows and ALSO produces generations of offspring who win BIG at dog shows, many of whom are also active working livestock guardians guarding goats, kids, geese, and ducks!

"I think it's great that you have been willing to commit the enormous investment in time and money required to breed and show top quality Anatolians! You once told me you wanted to breed proven working Anatolians capable of winning big at dog shows and I believe you accomplished that goal!"
