Sire:  Nat'l BISS Am Ch Valmar's Apache Rebel (USA)
Dam:  Aust Ch Divani Vanity Fair
Whelped:  17th September 1999

An extremely sad time for not only us here at Silvasheen,
but also for the Reeves' family of Lancefield....
Our beautiful girl, Piper, was gently put to sleep just before
midnight on 13th July 2009 after finally succumbing
 to uterine cancer and kidney failure.
Words cannot begin to describe our sadness.
Piper had both of her human 'Mums' (Jann & Di) holding her
when she closed her eyes for the last time.
An absolutely unique, stunning girl - the likes of which we
are not likely to see again.  We will miss her with all our hearts.

R.I.P. our sweet Pipeeeee XXX

Piper was owned in partnership with Jann & John Reeves 
of Lancefield, Victoria.
She was an exceptionally pretty bitch, with a superb head, 
lovely neck into shoulders
and excellent hindquarter angulation.
A real smooch, Piper would always greet you with a huge smile, a trait
she has passed onto her children, grandchildren & great-grandchildren 

A great mum to her babies,
Piper was the dam of  3 champions & 1 Dual Ch (T)
from her two litters & these are :

Ch Silvasheen Indian Summer
Ch Silvasheen Grey Eagle ET
Ch Silvasheen Heza Rebel
Dual Ch (T) Silvasheen Aint Half Bad 

(All Graded 'Excellent' at 3rd Weimaraner
National in 2005)

Her sire, Am Ch Valmar's Apache Rebel (BROM)
was a US BISS winner and her dam was
one of the top producing
bitches in New South Wales.  

Piper was the first Aust Champion for her sire 'Rebel' 
& a Multi Class In Show winner, however
 the show ring was not to her 
liking and she was retired soon after gaining her title.

Piper was graded 
'Excellent' at the 3rd Weimaraner
National held in Victoria in 2005.

Piper has played a direct role in
contributing to our current lines through
her quality progeny from her two litters
and we have much to thank her for
