Ch. Chelsea Sunshine Girl, HIC!

Sister to 6 champions!

It is the end of an era here at Chelsea. On Saturday March 21, 2015, I had to let go of Ch. Chelsea Sunshine Girl, HIC, just two months shy of her 14th birthday. She was a sister to 6 other specialty winning champions. Natasha was the last of the Bailee/Betsy champions (Ch. Chelsea The Crown Prince ex Ch. Chelsea Charidan Carte Blanc, ROM) and was the one who gave her dam, the coveted ROM title. Many will remember her barking for food in the ring! She finished with three specialty majors, all breeder owner handled. Ironically I sold her at a year old because I had two sisters....figuring why would I need 3?? Thank goodness I got her back following a reaction to "Revolution". Had I not gotten her back, Betsy would never have gotten her ROM! Natasha lived a long healthy life and was Don's favorite! She was the housemate of older sister Wendy and she never quite recovered from Wendy's passing last summer. Prior to Wendy's death, she was a hale and hearty eater. Following that, we had trouble getting her to eat. She truly missed her best friend Wendy!

Natasha is shown going WB & BW for a 4 point major under Bonnie Young at the Fall 2006 California Collie Clan specialty.

Natasha lived here along with her two champion sisters, Ch. Chelsea Summer Blonde and Ch. Chelsea The Crown Jewel. She always took a back seat to her sisters. Finally, it was her turn. She went to the Fall 2007 Roseville Specialties (the largest in the state) with 6 points and returned home with 15! She won 2 majors on back-to-back days. Starting with a 4 point WB under Marcia Keller, she finished the next day with a 5 point WB and BOS/BOB (beating 6 champion bitches) under Sandy Thompson! She finished with 3 specialty majors.........all breeder/owner handled!!

This gives her dam, Ch. Chelsea Charidan Carte Blanc, 7 champions and qualifies her for the coveted "Register of Merit" title!
