Ch. Wyndlair Blue Cherokee
(Ch. Vennessee’s Midnight Edition, ROM ex Ch. Wyndlair Secret Showcase)

Most regular attendees of the CCA National Specialty remember Renee Rizzo as the most dominant junior handler of her time. Rookie was the other part of that dynamic duo! Sold to a 9-year-old Renee, Rookie was just six months old when Renee won her first CCA Best Junior Handler Award. By the time they were done, Renee had an impressive resume that included being the first junior handler to retire the perpetual CCA Junior Handling Trophy - winning the CCA Best Junior Handler Award 3 times, multiple Top Junior of the Year awards, competing at Westminster in New York City, and Crufts in England. No other junior handler in the history of the breed has approached Renee & Rookie’s resume!

Rookie had quite a record in his own right, winning multiple Herding Group I’s and a Westminster K.C. Award of Merit. Rookie was always full of energy & perfectly attuned to Renee’s lead. His personality, intelligence & ice blue coloring were a carbon copy of his dam. It was joy to see Rookie every year at the National. Renee is patiently waiting for her next great blue male…it will need to be a special one!
