"The Queen" ... Ch. Kitty’s Vanilla Puddin’ ... Long Coat Chihuahua
“I was a star in the show ring, however my designation as the ‘Queen Mother’ came from the excellent puppies I had with my mate, Ch. Douglas’ Blanco Rollo, C.D. Our most memorable puppies were Ch. Snow Bunny d’Casa de Cris and her younger brother, Ch. Snow B Bear d’Casa de Cris (aka Big Bad Boogie).
“I retired gracefully from the show ring after being defeated by my puppy daughter, Snow Bunny, who would go on to have a rather successful show career.”
The Chihuahua is a smart, saucy, alert little dog with a terrier-type personality and is the smallest of the toy breeds. Although the Chihuahua must be six pounds or less to go into the show ring, they are fearless around dogs of any size much to the dismay of their owners. Thanks to their excellent hearing, they make wonderful watch dogs. This centuries-old breed is a member of AKC's Toy Group.
The Artist: Born and reared in the South, Martha Hooks has always had dogs in her life. Her memories of going to field trials with her dad as well as time spent in conformation rings with her Long Coat Chihuahuas helped expand her knowledge of canine anatomy, breed traits and personalities. She paints full time and, of course, her favorite subjects are dogs, cats and horses. In addition to portrait work, she paints pets on purses.
