The dog the Jordan's got from us was, of course, BIS BISS CH Glengrogan's Cooper's Kilt. Cooper is a multiple all breed Best In Show winner as well as winner of the national specialty and the first Westie to place in the group at the Montgomery County National Terrier show in 15 years. He has over seventy five group placements, has won five other specialties, received awards of merit at both Westminster and national roving specialty, and won the breed at the Eukanuba National Invitational Show twice. He has truly followed in his grandfather's footsteps as well as the footsteps of his ancestor the incomparable BIS BISS AM BDA CH Mac-Ken-Char's Irish Navigator.
In late 2007 the Jordan's offered us a beautiful little girl out of Boomer's last litter with their champion girl Ch BCK's To Cute to Shoot (Daisy). We were happy to get Chappie and she fit right in with the rest of the pack. She was shown on the weekend of the National Specialty in Oklahoma in July 2008 and got 2 five point majors, one as best of winners (over 42 dogs and bitches). On the day of the specialty she was beaten by her litter sister, CH Duntrune's Million Dollar Baby (Maggie), but finished her championship the next week with a major win in Massachusetts, shown by Vanessa Flemming.
In October 2008, Boomer joined his son Cooper by earning the National Club's ROM designation (Registry of Merit) from the National Club, which is awarded to stud dogs who sire at least 10 champions and brood bitches that produce at least 5 champions. Jaycie also qualified for the award and received it in October 2010. Since the National Club instituted the award, about 1980 or so, only about 300 dogs had earned it as of 2010.
We decided to have a last litter with Jaycie and had 3 boys and a girl, all of whom went to great homes. Some may be shown. We liked the result and bred Callie to the same stud dog, CH Nic Mac's King of the Road (Harley). That litter was born on May 25th a week premature and included Chopper who became our stud dog. Chappie (CH Duntrune's Lady Francis of McAmis) won the Winner's Bitch award from the National Westie Club having beaten more dogs in the winners class in 2008 than any other bitch within the nation and Chopper followed her in 2009 winning the same award in male dogs. He has now retired and has gone to his new home in Florida with the Franklins, and Chappie has gone to live with our friend, house and dog sitter, Susan Spencer.
Also in 2009, Katy (Callie) had her final litter and we kept CiCi (CH Glengrogan Caledonian Charisma) who has now earned her championship with 5 major wins along with Sizzle (CH Glengrogan's Hot Stuff) who also finished with 5 major wins. We also shared litters with Marleen Burford (Mardot Westies) and have a girl out of Jill (CH Mardot's Madame Gillean), who is Boomer's grandaughter, and Chopper named Missy (Mardot's Devine Miss Glengrogan). Missy, her daughters Sizzle and MiMi, as well as CiCi all had litters in 2013. However, we are sad to report that we lost our beloved Boomer who passed away on Oct, 2nd 2013 at the age of 16 and a half, and Jaycie on January 19, 2015 at age 15.
So now all the Boomer / Jaycie great grandchildren, Dazzle, Twinkle, along with Mister Duffy, our stud dog, named in honor of our first dog, are the future of Glengrogan, as will be their sons and daughters no doubt at well, at our new house in Cumming Ga. where they hold forth and control the second floor.
