Kimmy is a zany, fun-loving daughter of our goofball Ranger (aka Mzalia Texas Ranger) and livewire Zayla (aka Aust Ch Wazazi Tailord By Virtue).
There is never a dull moment with Kimmy around - she is a constant source of amusement, and readily breaks into puppy-like play. She also has a lot of the characteristics of her mum and dad in her; like her dad she is a very vocal and yodels a lot; and she is extremely athletic and loves to run around a lot - just like her mum.
Right from the time she was a young puppy, she has always loved to be the centre of attention, hence her show name "Look At Me". She gets her call name from one of the characters in the Australian Comedy series Kath & Kim, her call name "Kimmy" coming from the famous line "look at moi, Kimmy" which is regularly used in the show.
In addition to being a fun-loving girl, she is also extremely accident prone - if any of our kids find their way into trouble, it will always be Kimmy. Whenever we ring our vet the first thing they normally say is "what has Kimmy done now"?
Sadly the worst of her injuries was a fractured front leg which eventually led to her retirement from the show ring.
In May 2009, Kimmy had her first litter of puppies, fathered by our Finnish import Keke (aka Aust Ch Vanguardian Real McCoy). To see photos of these puppies, please click here to visit their Photo Album.
Kimmy certainly lived up to her name, and was a real little show pony. However she had quite an interrupted career at times as a result of her various little misdemeanours at home.
Before she was retired, she was a multiple Best of Breed and Class in Show winner.
