'Jasmine' was 3 years old when she came to us. Her breeder/owner, Gina Pointing, had moved to a flat where she was unable to keep two dogs. So she opted to keep Jazzy's mother, Golda and we bought Jasmine from her. A month after she came to live with us Ellen showed her at Crufts where she won BOS. That year, 1995, Jazzy ended up as the Pedigree/DOG WORLD Top Canaan Dog in the UK. She was shown for only a short time before a stint in the whelping box where she and our Digger produced 4 lovely puppies...which included our Sheindela and Anacan Forever Amber.

Though shown only sparingly at championship shows that give the breed classes, Jasmine took Best Bitch each time out in 1998. At Crufts 1999 Jazzy won Best Bitch and BOS and her daughter, Anacan Forever Amber took Reserve to her mum. (Amber went on to be the overall Top Canaan dog in the UK 2002 & 2003 and BOB at Crufts 2002!)

Jasmine was a very typey and feminine bitch with a gorgeous face she passed on to her offspring and grandkids. She could still move very well around a show ring in Veterans Class at the Canaan Dog Club of the United Kingdom's open shows and was an extremely outgoing girl. You had to be careful though or she would french kiss you!

On the 12th March 2002 we had to have Jasmine spayed due to a uterine infection. Thanks to our veterinarian's skills and her characteristic Canaan health, she quickly recovered and was back to her old self. Jazzy had a stroke at 14 years of age and we thought we were going to lose her, but no, she recovered and stayed with us for over a year longer until another stroke that required a last visit to the vet.

A loving companion, show dog and excellent producer all rolled into one, Jazzy was an excellent addition to our household and a great breed representative at The Kennel Club's DISCOVER DOGS. We are so happy Gina allowed us to have her and grateful for the legacy she left us.
