Ch Starlings Tootsie to Wellingley
Ch, Am Ch Regencys Original Sin x Ch Starlings Miss Marple
Tootsie was bred by Liz's friend Merete Staehr-Nielsen in Denmark. She had admired her mother Megan, who was a Henry daughter, so was delighted when Merete wanted to send Megan over to be mated to Adam....hoping a bitch puppy would come her way!
Megan produced 5 puppies in her first litter. One of these bitches (Tootsies' sister) Starlings Toy Story became a Junior Champion in Holland and Tootsie made her way to the UK.
Tootsie was quite a character and very 'vocal'! Her 'party trick' was to clear the garden wall (nearly 4 feet high !) - but only if she could see Liz on the other side! She was also handy on the field and kept the gundogs in line when they were short dogs on shoots!
Tootsie won the bitch CC at the Northern Schnauzer Club in November 2008 under Mrs F. Somerfield and gained her title the following year making her the first undocked champion in the UK.
In her first Litter she produced Ch Wellingley What Goes Around.
