Reflections of Winuwuk Red Leader of Winuwuk

In the early 90s we had some very nice Flying Scotchman children to mate and, not really having a suitable dog to mate them to within the kennel, we needed to look for an outcross stud dog. We were very keen to maintain our good fronts and shoulders since we have always thought that bad fronts are a fault that takes generations to breed out. We looked around and decided upon the lovely red dog, Ch. Ashgate Able Seaman of Seefeld who was an outstandingly well made dog with a particularly good forehand.

The first time we used Able Seaman was on a bitch called Winuwuk Flirtation who was actually stolen from our kennels as a baby puppy and we had a very traumatic few days tracking her down .. but that's another story. Flirtation was a very typey young lady with a smart, unexaggerated outline and a pretty head.

We had high hopes for this litter and when it arrived we were not disappointed and 'Sheila' stood out from the start. She was a slow maturing girl who did not start to make her mark until after she had left the Minor Puppy classes behind but in Puppy she had a good win under Cora Donoghue at Blackpool and she was Best Puppy in Show under Ellis Hulme at the Trent Boxer Club in 1994.

We were somewhat worried that with Scotch Mist's career absolutely flying, we might have struggled to get Jubilation through at the same time, but we needn't have worried. Into 1995, Sheila won a Reserve CC at the very first show of the year, the Anglian Boxer Club under Denise Mastaglio and another very soon after at the Scottish Boxer Club under Joy Malcolm. Her first CC then came from her namesake, Sheila Bowman, at Paignton where she was also Best of Breed, followed swiftly by another Reserve from Stuart Lockwood-Brown at East of England.

Her second CC was awarded by Rita Williams in a very large entry at the Trent Boxer Club, where she was also Best in Show (thus securing her place at the centre of the Club's next commemorative plate which are such collectors' items these days). Her title then came from Lynette Davey at Three Counties 1996, with Best of Breed and consideration in the final few of Andrew Thomson's strong Working Group that day.

She picked up a fourth CC later in the same year under Des Kavanagh at the South Western where the Reserve CC was won by her kennel mate, the future Ch. Winuwuk Misty Morning. Her final appearance in the ring was then at Windsor 1997 where she won Open Bitch and the Reserve CC from Reg Hill.

Sheila was a very stylish bitch with a dramatic outline and a very nicely balanced head. Like her father, she was not always willing to make the most of herself in the show ring, but on her good days she was hard to get past.

Thankfully for us, she has also been a good producer and a very easy whelper. Her first litter to Winuwuk Highland Mist (our Fineas Fogg/Scotch Mist son) produced the Champion bitch, Winuwuk Inspiration of Newlaithe and also Winuwuk Highland Man who went to Finland and who has very nearly claimed his International Championship.

When mated to Winuwuk Lust in the Dust for her second litter she produced Ch. Winuwuk Hot 'n' Bothered. Thanks to her Champion children, Jubilation was Runner-Up Top Dam on a couple of occasions - each time being beaten by another Winuwuk Boxer!!

Interestingly, Jubilation's litter sister is the mother of our Ch. Winuwuk Lovestruck, providing further proof of the success of this breeding.
