CH Childs Play Maid To Order, aka Ritz, is sired by one of my favorite Parsons that has excelled in the hunt field and the conformation ring, CH Childs Play Chase. Chase was sold to Kennel Radagast in Sweden shortly before Ritz's mother, Falling Branch Cleverly Maid, aka Chloe, was bred. Chloe is a litter sister to our Desi (CH Falling Branch Clever Design) and Balou (CH Falling Branch Mr Balou).

I nearly had a heart attack when I found out that Kelly sold Chase out of the US even though I KNEW that Berit was the perfect home for this intense, hunt driven terrier. Still, I grieved for the loss of the CH Farmcliff Ben of Childs Play bloodine because Chase was the last male sired by Ben. Further, Chase was outstanding in his own right, regardless of his pedigree. Chase's dam is CH Childs Play Fat Lady Singin' (aka Buffy), a proven producer of working and winning Parson Russell Terriers. Like Chase's sire, Ben, his dam, Buffy, boasts a pedigree of proven working terriers many bred and worked in the UK and many worked in America but all from solid proven English working lines.

It was this solid foundation of working blood with the best temperaments that is so vital to the gene pool. So before Chase could be shipped to Berit, Chloe came into season and was bred to him. I held my breath hoping for a large litter with lots to choose from. While Chloe belongs to Kelly, I was so hoping for either a male or female pup with all of the best attributes of both parents. And so came Ritz.

Ritz appears, on first glance, to take her type from her mother. However, if you look past the color you are looking at Buffy and Chase. Ritz is always up for a new adventure. She gets along beautifully with other terriers, both female and male, and there is not a contentious bone in her body. She is wired pretty tightly and doesn't miss much, and is prey driven to the max. And like a proper working terrier, Ritz has a chest that is easily spannable as well as the proper shape. She is elegant yet with plenty of bone and a gorgeous head, flexible, well angulated and a beautiful mover. At speed she perfectly single tracks and is even front to back.

Ritz earned her UKC championship among top competition expertly handled by co-owner and breeder Kelly Meeks-Childs. It was obvious from her first time in the ring that Ritz LOVES to show off and is extremely animated like both her sire and dam. She should easily finish her AKC championship in any competition.

Watch for Childs Play Maid To Order in the show ring during the summer 2010 with Liz and with co-owner Kelly Meeks-Childs.
