Hanging on the couchZelda joined our home from Sovereign Brittanys in Minnesota. I have always loved Zelda's father, Vegas. He is a stunning dog to watch in the show ring. Zelda's mother is a beautiful bitch who has produced nice puppies in her previous litters. I originally considered taking a boy from the litter, but Classy graced us with only 3 puppies, all girls! Everything happens for a reason.Zelda was a fun puppy. Zelda's call name is after the video game The Legend of Zelda. I spent way too many hours of my youth playing Zelda, and thought it was only fitting to name a dog after that. Her AKC name was originally going to be something different, but after Zelda lived with me for a couple months I decided her name needed to somehow relate to her father's AKC name, as she is very much a female version of him. I showed Zelda to all her show points. We picked up both majors from the 6-9 puppy class.

Then Zelda started competing in field trials. I was able to selectivly show Zelda while she competed in the field, and finished her show championship with 4 majors. After I finished her, Zelda picked up multiple Best of Breeds and a Best In Specialty win on her in 2006, and qualified Zelda for the Eukanuba Tournament of Champions. After a couple weeks off for shows, Zelda went back to summer camp for the fall field trial season. Zelda picked up her first Open Gundog win in the fall of 2006, and the remainder of her field points in the spring of 2007 finishing her field championship, and making her a Dual Champion at the young age of 2 1/2. Zelda came home in hopes of breeding her. I decided to enter her in some shows while I waiting for her to come into season. I was just hoping to get some Best of Breeds and qualify her for the 2007 Eukanuba Tournament of Champions. Zelda jumped back in the showring like she never left, and she picked up multiple Group Placements on top of her Best of Breed wins. The highlight the summer of 2007 was her 2nd Best in Specialty win at the California Brittany Club Specialty.

I decided that 2008 was Zelda's year to hit the show ring and sent her to Phil & Amy Booth of Blue Rose Kennels in Michigan. We retired Zelda in September with her Best In Specialty Win at the Georgia Brittany Club.
She retired as the #1 Brittany Bitch in the country.

Zelda is spayed, and can only be shown at independent specialties and in sweepstakes. I brought her out for sweepstakes at the Summer Specialty and she was Best of Opposite Sex in Dual Sweepstakes and Best in Veteran Sweepstakes. This was a big thrill for me as I was back on the end of her leash. She was handled by several other people during her specials career as I was too nervous to handle her myself even though I showed her to all her show championship points.

Zelda has 12 offspring, and her top winning kid is GCH Sovereign's Chasing Legends "Hobey" owned by Dawn & Joe Droel. Hobey is a Best in Show and Multiple Best in Specialty Show winner. To date she has 4 Champions (3 American & 1 Canadian).
