Am. Ch. Pennybright Sia “Sia”

Sia is the only one of our hounds without a nickname. Maybe we were not creative enough to come up with one, maybe ‘Sia’ says it all because it is short and sweet. Whatever the reason, she is a most typical hound with wonderful conformation. She was beautiful as a baby puppy and is just as beautiful as an adult. She finished her championship in 6 shows with 4 majors, never been out of the points. Her movement is impeccable as she just floats. Since she did not enjoy showing, we retired her in 2022. The only thing she enjoys even less than showing is eating – she is very generous in her (almost daily) food donations to others, forcing us to be creative to maintain her condition. Other than that, she is a happy girl who still takes care of her children Ely and Romy as if they were puppies.
