Ch Metropolis Avant Tout

Metropolis Avant Tout is from Metropolis’ first litter, the first offspring for her mother, Ch Palaway Mon Bijou, and her sire, Gr Ch Kimlise Reilley Viane, whelped in June 2012.  Her bloodlines are all English.  Her most recent show success was winning Metropolis’ first ever::

· RUNNER UP BEST OF BREED and RESERVE CHALLENGE BITCH at the PURINA SYDNEY ROYAL EASTER SHOW 2016, aged 3 1/2, under Mrs Anna Cärlstrom (Sweden)

By age 10 months, Avant Tout’s wins included:

· classes in Group for each of Puppy, Minor and Baby Puppy, Baby Puppy in Show (All Breeds); and

· Baby Puppy in Specialty Show at the NSW Hungarian Vizsla Club Show in October 2012 under Mr D Connolly (Ire).

Mr Connolly said of Avant Tout (aged 4 months at the time):

"Lovely baby of beautiful type. Excellent head with correct flew and beautiful dark eye. Lovely substance for frame and excelling in front, forechest, neck, topline, croup and tailset. This girl exhibited a nice easy profile gait and was very sound out and back. Definitely one for the future!"

Avant Tout attained her Championship title in 2013 and has since continued winning ways, with show wins including:

· Junior in Group at the Southern Highlands Kennel Club under Ms K Sneath (Vic) in October 2013;

Critique of Avant Tout at the March 2016 Specialty (where she placed second in the Australian Bred class) included “nicely balanced. She was easy on the move and very well conditioned. Nice depth of chest, ribbing, short in loin & arched forechest”.

Most days of the month Avant Tout is just a regular member of the Metropolis pack. She is an excellent example of the wisdom of allowing the puppy to pick you, rather than you picking the pup. Fortunately for Robyn Avant Tout was also the pick of the litter! She has an independent determined personality like her father, combined with her mother’s sweet tractable nature. She is also a mighty hunter, and self-confident. She has chosen La Cygne for her role model, and likes to dominate her brothers. She has mastered stepping up and down off the 1.5m high loft bed, and comes and goes at will.
