Aust Grand Champion Panache Strike Up The Band (Imp NZ)

"Blue" came to Shiralea Kennels as a puppy from prominent NZ breeder Phillip Kersey and quickly gained his Australian Title. Known for his type, temperament and correct hackney gait, "Blue" is a pleasure to show, and those that know him love him. Whilst he was semi-retired for a brief time whilst his Kennel mate, Aust.& N.Z. Champion Panache The Song and Dance Man(Imp NZ) "Fred" and others were being campained, Blue is now back in the ring, well on his way to his Grand Championship title. GO "BLUE."

UPDATE: I am proud to announce that "Blue" gained his Aust. Grand Chamoionship title at the Noorat Circuit in early March 2013. He may now gracefully retire from the show ring unless for special occasions allowing some of his progony and kennel mates have to opportunity to share glory in the show ring. Well done "Blue"

"FURTHER UPDATE: "Blue" who still loves the show ring was brought out of retirement for the prestigious Veteran class 7 years to 10 years, and held his own out of 35 exhibits. He loved his time bringing back memories. He was a crowd pleaser on exhibit, allowing many children pat and pamper him; which he enjoyed immensely. A credit to his Breed, love him to bits. He is now peacefully at home, retired from the show ring, but I am sure he would be up for a mating if given the opportunity.

Sadly Blue passed away, age 12 1/2 and waits for me on the Rainbow bridge. Miss you little man, but you live on in your babies.
