2011 saw Chilli 1st Dogzonline Best of Breed competition, and he had 3 months away from the show ring during that year, for a well earned rest. His breed type and correct construction being well rewarded.
The 2011 National Dog show, saw Chilli take Dog Challenge and Reserve of Breed, and his daughter, Spice, Bitch Challenge and Best of Breed, an awesome achievement for Ponsonby kennels.
Our beautiful Chilli, is a remarkable dog. He loves life, and everyone around him, a lovable clown, He talks to us all the time. He has an awesome laid back nature, that he passes onto his offspring.
At 6 years, we feel he has now reached full maturity, and commands the ring, with his excellent confirmation and sound temperament.
The 2012 National, Chilli was awarded Reserve Dog Challenge, and his daughter, Spice, Reserve Bitch Challenge from a good entry.
A repeat mating produced the stunning young male CH Ponsonby Mr Tambourine Man (Rufus), now a champion in his own right, and often beating his father for the Dog Challenge.
We thank Liat and Raylene for letting Chilli come to us, sired by the late great Elyot. We will always be grateful for their faith in us.
We love him dearly, he has given us a roller coaster ride so far
