Aust Ch Kensil’s Smiling Eyes (Imp USA)

Aisling (2 of 5)

Aisling Nov 2015

Thought for the day: “Man like water finds his own level”

Many pedigrees were extensively researched to find this lovely moderate 14 inch bitch, who will hopefully be the cornerstone for LochWind Shelties.

I believe very strongly that the best success, whether with horses or dogs,  comes from breeding from a very strong, healthy, vigorous, proven tail line pedigree. As with my collies, I sought to find a bitch with that strong female line. Bitches who consistently generation after generation have produced champion stock and good breeding daughters. This line is undeniably all that and more.

Aisling should compliment Uno, who has already proven himself to be an exceptional sire.

As of 11.11.18 Aisling is already the dam of three Australian Champions from her only two litters. Sired by our Uno we have two Best In Show winners. BIS/RUBIS Ch LochWind Gentle Smile.  BIS/RUBISS Ch LochWind Grand Design HIC. HT. PT.  and LochWind Grace Kelly HIC. HT. JD.JDX. GD. In her second litter she has Ch LochWind I Like It Like That. With her brother LochWind I Am What I Am, also nearly finished.

  1. Mr. David O'Shannessy.

    You say – Kensil’s Smiling eyes. – pedigree is simply outstanding !, I say – Aisling’s. – pedigree is simply – outstanding! of the outstanding!.

  2. This is a great family. As you would know AmCh/Ch Kensil’s Dreams N Schemes ROMA was imported by Long & Drysdale (Peerielee) in the mid 1990’s. He sired about a dozen champions in Australia from memory. I know Glenys Acreman – Hillacre and Donteray had Ch’s by him.

  3. Mr. David P. O'Shannessy.

    Kensil’s Smiling eyes. – With the pedigree that is simply outstanding! Aisling. – Does have the impeccable pedigree. The proof is in her handsome brothers and beautiful sisters – three American Grand Champions and three American Champions, in just a couple of litters. This is only really achievable if you do have the very best of the best in pedigrees. Loving especially – Cameryn. Her great grandmother, being the great – American Champion Grandgables Times up at PaRay.

    • If you look at Sylvia Calderwood’s Facebook page, I believe there are some photos of soon to be champions Kensil Chance Encounter and Kensil Irish Encounter. These two boys are out of Aisling’s sister Ch Kensil Irish Honor by Belmark Close Encounter (Keaton), who is no number one sheltie in USA right now.
      Last year I tried to buy a puppy bitch from this litter, which is what caused me to do a great deal of research into the family.
      Belmark also have two bitch pups by Keaton, from Grd Ch Irish Clan another of Aisling’s sisters. It will be interesting to see how these two girls go in the ring.

  4. Mr. David p. O'Shannessy.

    Kensil’s Smiling eyes. – great grandmother – American Champion Times up at paray. is one of my favourite producing bitchs, and now I will have to add to my so called list. Aisling’s – mother – American Grand Champion Kensil’s Irish eyes. ****** Also another one of her sisters that I love – apart from the other six american grand champions and american champion brothers and sisters, is the beautiful – Kensil’s Kool kool kitty.

  5. Mr. David Patrick O'Shannessy.

    Aisling’s – nephews – Kensil’s Chance encounter. and – Kensil’s Irish encounter., look very handsome puppies. ****** I see that Aisling’s brothers and sisters are that good, that they now have their own page called – Aisling’s siblings.

  6. David O'Shannessy.

    Kensil’s Smiling eyes. – and – PaRay’s Social inclusion. As show girls and future partners for – (let me get this right) American Champion and Canadian Grand Champion Grandgables Alfenloch UNO. (imported from Canada). It is in my opinion – that you couldn’t have done any better – I don’t think. So I sincerely wish them only the very best, in campaigning – and their family life.

  7. Mr. David patrick O'Shannessy.

    I have been looking into Aisling’s sisters. American Champion Kensil’s Irish honour. and American Grand Champion Kensil’s Irish clan. progeny from American Grand Champion Belmark Close encounter., and American Champion Kensil’s Kool kool kitty. progeny from Best In Speciality Show American Grand Champion Syringa Treasure trove. With all the guys looking handsome and all the gals looking beautiful. — I have also been looking into Aisling’s distant relative, the first american champion shetland sheepdog imported into australia. The handsome – American and Australian Champion Kensil’s Dreams ‘n’ schemes – ‘ R O M A ‘. (imported from the united states of america)., and Dreamer’s dreamy progeny. —- Looking at the photographs and footage of your lovely property Lock-wind, it looks as if you have the best in facilities – it looks well set up and well maintained. Just like a resort for any lucky dogs.

  8. * * * Aisling and sophie – with the best of the very best – of champion of champions – of pedigrees, have now finally arrived after months of waiting – so Welcome to australia girls – Welcome. * * * * * * I do hope that all at lock-wind (and kerry mckay) have had a Merry Christmas, and also wishing you a happy, healthy and safe – Happy ‘2016’ New Year !. * * *

  9. * Apart from the parentage of the impeccable pedigree – and also the handsome brothers and beautiful sisters progeny of Aisling, there is also what very high quality progeny – her siblings have produced. * * * So aisling has the best past – as well as the best present, with her future looking so bright – it couldn’t possibly get any brighter. * * * * * * Aisling’s brother – Multiple Best In show – Chinese Best In Show – American and Canadian Bronze Grand Champion Kensil’s Nutrageous, Rage looks so very handsome in his photographs – that he doe’s look absolutely perfect. *

  10. I would like to make a couple of corrections on your info concerning Am Ch/Ch Kensil’s Dreams N Schemes (imp USA). Dreamer arrived in Australia in 2000 at the age of 5 years which makes his record even more incredible. He quickly gained his title and the discerning breeders that used him were well rewarded. My daughter Danielle and son in law Garry Dryburgh were in partnership with myself and husband Trevor. I wish you continued success with your latest imports.
