Lucidity's Blazing Ice
Icy (Lucidity's Blazing Ice) represents my foray back into Papillons. She was a singleton out of my second Papillon litter ever, after an 8 year hiatus. Her sire, Flint aka MBIS MBISS Am. GCHP. Can. GCHB. Valifyre Freespirit Icy Sparks, SOM was THE dog that rekindled my love for the breed. Years ago, after having imported 3 Papillons that all didn't turn out for one reason or other, I threw in the towel and decided to focus on Cavaliers instead. When I moved back to Vancouver, however, I spotted this beautiful little dog in the ring, and after speaking to a couple of Papillon breeder friends who were hanging out by the ring, I learned that this boy's name was Flint, and that he was currently "unbeatable".
Flint was bred by the wonderful Kelley Laan of Valifyre Papillons, one of the most genuine and helpful people I've ever met in the show world. I always admired Flint from near and far, often lamenting that I didn't have a Papillon bitch that I could breed to him! As fate would have it, an acquaintance in Italy who had two bitches from Yvonne Weber of Nightfire's Papillons in Germany had a litter out of her bitch, Bonnie (Multi Ch. Nightfire's Top Secret) whose sire, Multi Ch. Unas vom Schwabenhof is one of my favourite Papillons of all time. The sire of the litter was Multi Ch. Mi'DiLiva's A Thousand Years, a son of UK Ch. Multi Ch. Gleniren Santediego Sunshoo, and there was a little redhead in the litter that I simply fell in love with.
So as fate would have it, Marina allowed Niffler to come here to Canada, and I could finally have my very own Flint litter! In September 2022, Icy came into the world, a huge 183g singleton puppy. I was so happy to have a beautifully marked *GIRL* with a fabulous pedigree filled with so many dogs that I have loved over the years of being just an admirer of Papillons.
Icy started her show career with a HUGE BANG, going Best Baby Puppy in Show her second weekend out at 5 months old, under judge Chakkapan Chantarasmee from Thailand. She then followed that up a month later by gaining a whopping 7 points in a single weekend, going WB 3x and BOS 2x over specials! I'm incredibly excited to see what the future holds for this happy, outgoing little girl.
