Fitz is the baby of the Kirkpatrick pack and if there ever was a dog that was fated to be with Holly & Daniel, she is it. Holly contacted Connie Skalski (Feist’s breeder) about a Border/Whippet litter for Sonya. It was perfect timing, as Connie was getting ready to breed her border collie Amp to Louise Hoelscher’s (Poeta) whippet Trumpet. Amp has always been one of Holly & Daniels favourite border collie’s and Trumpet is well known in the dog sport world for having amazing puppies. After hearing about this breeding they had to put their name on the list as well.
When the pups were ready to be picked up, Holly flew to South Carolina to pick the puppy she thought she wanted. Well Fitz had something to say about that! From the time Holly met all of the puppies, Fitz was constantly in her face. When Holly went into the x-pen to make her final decision and called “here puppy, puppy”, Fitz ran from one end of the x-pen to the other and jumped in her arms. That was that, Fitz had made her choice!
Fitz has been a dream to train so far. She is a tugging machine and with each passing week she is gaining more and more confidence in the lanes. We have yet to throw something at her that she cannot handle. We can’t wait for her to make her debut!
At home, Fitz is Holly’s shadow and Feist’s BFF.
