Grand CH Chrysalis Endless Night

(CH Manitias Brilliant In Black x Grand CH Chrysalis Winter Gold)

  1. b.6/15/2009

Bred by Pam Leichtnam & Janis McFerrin

Starry was our pick from the British Novel’s litter. She was a large, plump puppy, very boisterous, but has always been a joy to live with, very calm, very sweet.

Starry was the first in her litter to begin a show career. She had some success as a youngster taking 2 Best in Sweepstakes and 2 Best of Opposite in Sweepstakes. In addition, she competed at 3 Borzoi specialties, under three different breeder judges, and was awarded Reserve Winners Bitch each time (always shown from the bred-by exhibitor class).

Starry finished her championship in August 2012 garnering along the way a Best of Breed and Group II from the bred-by exhibitor class. Her first time shown as a champion she was awarded Best of Breed and a major towards her grand championship.

Starry took a break from the show ring to give birth to our latest British Novels litter, Chapter II, co-bred with Janis McFerrin (Firequest Borzoi). This was our second venture together which blended several old English lines. Two males and four females, sired by Firequest Beowulf, all tri-colored with various markings, were born 2/16/2013.

In 2014 Starry entered the conformation ring once again. By August, she acquired her Grand Championship. Though retired, she showed as a veteran at the Midwest Borzoi Club trophy supported show 8/2016 and was awarded Best Veteran in Sweesptakes.

Starry’s kids are now 4 years old. Three daughters remain at Chrysalis, Dove, Darcy, and Adele. We are looking forward to Starry’s grand-pups out of Dove x Pavel which will mark the 4th generation of Chrysalis-bred Borzoi!
