Before Champion Blossom Valley Calypso Joe “Joey” was exported to Japan, he made a stop at Dr. Vanderlip’s facility for semen collection and freezing. Good thing, too, because later on Champion Ultra Quest Sky’s the Limit “Shelby” needed to find the perfect match! Shelby was artificially inseminated (AI) by Dr. Vanderlip, using Joey’s frozen semen and a non-surgical AI technique. Four wonderful Parsons Russell Terrier puppies were produced from that breeding! Joey later sired another litter with semen frozen by Dr. Vanderlip. And here’s something to know about Joey…..in 2009, Joey became the top-winning, number one, Parsons Russell Terrier in Japan!
