Jamaica is our pick from the Breeze X Speed litter. Stuart has waited to get his Breeze pup for years and Jamaica fit the bill. We were hoping to keep a black and white girl but Jamaica picked our family from the start. She followed the kids around, being the only puppy we have had to climb the swing set and slide down with the kids. She won us over with her drivey, friendly personality. When she ended up with the best structure of the girls, it was a done deal. This gorgeous girl has the personality, drive, and structure to do it all. She is softer than her mother is and very quick to learn. She is much smaller than we had anticipated, which is fitting since our Shiver daughters are much larger than we expected. Jamaica has always loved helping weed the garden and yard. She does flips and catches every weed I throw. Occasionally, she will do the weeding all by herself and run around the yard playing with a weed or clump of grass. She has started her flyball, herding, dock dog, trick, rally, obedience, frisbee, and agility training. Even though Stuart was supposed to be her handler, she has been taken over by our daughter Jordan and they are turning into a great team. Jordan has taken over her agility training and Jamaica now sleeps with her as well. Stuart will have to get himself a new puppy in the future. Jamaica is a superstar at flyball and is amazing at agility and dock dog as well. Jamaica is an amazing trick and obedience dog, but it will be a few years before we compete in those areas, if ever. She has only had a chance to be on stock a few times and show promise, but she would need a lot more exposure before being ready for competition. Jamaica will have a few litters at First Harmony Farms and we are excited to see what she will throw for us.
Jamaica has started her flyball career, running consistent 3.9-4.0 with an occasional 3.8 thrown in. She was supposed to be handled by Stuart, but is usually handled by Jordan. Jamaica can run in any lineup for anyone, but does not maintain her box turn often. She much prefers a pivot top a swimmer's turn, but we will hopefully see a better turn in time.
Jamaica started dock diving at a year old and went to nationals that year. She also qualified her second year for Nationals and started jumping in the Master Division. She is an extremely flat jumper, running full speed off the dock with no jump at all, but her speed can take her far. Judges say she is the hardest dog to judge they have ever seen since she almost seems to skip across the top of the water.
