Named 2008 OFA Champion of Health by the BSCA
Nique is one of those once in a lifetime animals. She can and does do it all!!! She has tremendous drive, an outstanding temperament, and great health. Every knowledgeable breeder judge on both sides of the Atlantic has rewarded this bitch's type and structure. She started her show career by finishing with 3 five point majors during the 1998 National Specialty week culminated by going WB and BOW at the National. This was happening while her 6 month old sons were also doing well. During that week her son Captain was BOS at the Trinity Valley Specialty Sweeps and her other son Magnum was Reserve Winners Dog. Nique is a multiple group placer and winner and in 2001 was the BOS at the National Specialty. She has also been the top producer as recognized by Pedigree in 1999, 2000 and 2002. She has produced 16 champions so far with  more close to finishing. Her kids are also multiple group placers with Ch. Sans Brancos Make My Day Cibola a multiple BIS and BISS dog. He was also the #1 dog in the US as a two year old in 2000. Ch Cibola's Paragon Sans Branco was BOS at the 2006 National and her granddaughter Ch Sans Brancos Saltarella was Best of Breed. She has 5 group placing kids and HIT children. Her grandchildren are following in her footsteps with over 16 group placers and top obedience, herding and agility dogs and over 30 Champions..
Nique was  truly the dog who could do it all and was limited only by my inability to do herding, tracking, and agility from the wheelchair,    She could go from working as my service dog in New York to winning the Award of Merit  at Westminster.  Nique finished her show career by winning the Veterans Bitch class at the 2007 National Specialty and earning an Award of Merit.  Of the final 5 bitches at the 2007 National to be considered for Best of Breed 3 were either Nique children or grandchildren.
People talk about their heart dogs and Nique truly was mine.  I miss her very much.  She passed away the day her daughter,  Ch Sans Brancos Uppin the Ante finished her Hall of Fame.  I
I would like to thank Angela Barbe for breeding,choosing, and sending Nique to me!!!
