We started our love of
the Chinese Shar-Pei in 1991 with a very eccentric black horsecoat
named Sweeter N'Blackberry Jam (OFA
Good) and called BJ. BJ
was a Chang Bang daughter and was the beginning of our love of
this breed. Although we got her as a pet and guard dog, which she
was faithfully for 10 years, she did become our foundation bitch.
She turned 10 in November of 2001 and we lost her soon after that
to Lympho-sarcoma; a very aggressive cancer. BJ had been so
healthy her whole life and then was gone so quickly. We will
never forget her and treasure our memories of her. BJ had two
lovely litters. Her daughter,
CH. Harv's Sparkler Spectacular
has her personality and was
Winnerís Bitch at the 1999 Nationals. She has had three litters,
and received her ROM in 2004. She is the dam of BIS, BISS Ch.
Harvís Foster Rasberry Muffin (OFA Good), the only horsecoat
Chinese Shar Pei to ever win Best in Show. She is also the only
horsecoat and bitch to win the Top 25 Invitational for CSP which
she did in 2003. In Dec. 2003, Muffin had her 1st
litter. She was bred to CH. Shenaniganís Storm Surge. They had 8
puppies. These puppies are now being shown. We have Harvís
Huntiní for Rasberries and Harvís Rasberry Kissez. They both won
the Bred By horsecoat class at the 2004 Natíl. They also won the
Best Futurity Horsecoat Puppy in dog and bitch class. Sparkler
also has a new litter out of Storm Surge that will soon be old
enough to show.
Our second Shar Pei was
CH. Saki's Lil'
Ladybugz. She was born
in 1993 and we got her from Sam and Kim Goza who wanted her to be
shown and so she was the beginning of our showing dogs. She is
very cute and quite wrinkly to this very day. She is still quite
the boss around here. She was the mother of CH. Harvís Red Rover
Plezcumover (OFA Fair) who was the sire of Muffin.
Our third Shar Pei was
CH. Harv's Texas
Time Bomb of Kato. He
is very special to us. We got him from Sam and Kim also. He did
very well in his show career and is now coming out only
occasionally to show in Veterans. He was born on Feb. 20,
1994. We have several of his kids;
Harv's Yankee Doodle (OFA Good)
who won BISS at the Florida Specialty before the Florida Natíl in
2000, Sparkler is his daughter, and CH. Harv's Lil' Scarlet Sweettart.
Boomer loves puppies and at 11 is still enjoying playing with
Another one of our
special kids is CH.
Harv's Apple of MY Eye.
She is the daughter of Sparkler and Red Rover and the littermate
of Muffin. We have one of her daughters Harvís Favorite Apple
In March of 2001 we got a
dog from Judy and Tim Meitin. His name is CH. Meiting Odds
on Favorite (OFA Good)
and he is called Aggie. He is Strudelís dad and the sire of
Sparklerís 2nd litter. Their daughter CH. Harvís Just
a Touch of Spice was in the Top Dogs of 2004. She won WB at the
Specialty the day before Natíl in 2003.
We really love this breed
