Ir Sh Ch & Int Ch Chywoon Zissi Tulip Vom Fasanenbüschel at Berrywood
03/05/1997 - 2010
Sire: Chywoon Dark Night
Dam: Chywoon Sweet Cicely
Zissi is Dutch for pretty, and Tulip definitely lived up to her show name! Although Tulip came from Chywoon lines like our other setters, she was bred by G.Sluijer of the Fasanenbüschel kennels in Holland. She went to live with our friend Carol Smettem-Minson in the UK as a puppy, however after Bracken's back injury, Carol, was good enough to allow Tulip to come and live with us in Ireland in 2000, subsequently transferring her ownership to us in full.
Despite her late start,Tulip had a very successful career with multiple Green Stars, CACIB's, Best of Breeds and Group Placings. She also won Best in Show at the English Setter Club of Ireland.
We are very grateful to Carol Smettem-Minson of Chywoon, for entrusting us with our 'Tulip from Amsterdam'. We loved her dearly and now, each year we plant Tulips in our garden to remember our Pretty Tulip.
