Anathema De Aronagua Del Chanderhill CJW 2018

(Imp Esp)

Anathema (or Thema, for short) arrived at Chanderhill in February 2018. She came to us at 16 months old, having competed lightly as a Junior at Championship Show level in Spain. Thema, who is the half sister to Indi, was an instant hit with us, charming everybody in the family with her sweet nature.

Thema’s UK show highlights to date include being Best Bitch at the Darlington Dog Show Society Championship Show in September 2018 and Best of Breed at the Gundog Society of Wales Championship Show in October 2018. Thema was then placed fourth in Open Bitch at Crufts in March 2019.

Thema’s finest performances to date have undoubtedly been overseas. At the World Dog Show in Amsterdam in August 2018, Thema was graded Exc 2 in the Intermediate Bitch Class at the Benelux Winners Show and then Exc 3 at both the World Dog Show itself and the SWD Specialty Show.

In Spain, at Granada in February 2018, Kate handled Thema at the National Dog Show of Granada and then at the Monographica of the Union de Criadores del Perro de Agua Espanol. Thema was graded Exc 1 in the Intermediate Bitch Class at both shows and was Best Bitch and Best of Opposite Sex at the Monographica.

Back in Spain, in November 2018, Thema was graded Exc 3 in Open Bitch at the International Dog Show of Malaga (out of 21 females in the class!). There were 124 SWDs entered in the show in total.

Anathema is not just a pretty face in the show ring, though. She is also now a mother, giving birth to her first litter of pups in June 2019. One of those pups, Dee Dee (Chanderhill Fiddle Dee Dee At Elantiz) was Best Puppy in Breed on her show debut at the Ladies Kennel Association Championship Show in December 2019.
