OUR 2nd HOME-BRED CHAMPION and 1st HOME-BRED GRAND CHAMPION!
Born a singleton puppy on December 30, 2013, my little Wicked Felina is a special girl that has captured my heart.
06/24/15: She finished her AKC Championship easily with relatively limited showing and two 4-Point majors under Breeder Judge Vern Hoppman (Bulldog Club of Greater San Diego specialty, April 2015) and BOW under Breeder-Judge Dan Powers!!! (Woofstock backup show, June 4, 2015). Both majors were captured amongst some very tough competition. Way to go Fifi-Dee!
10/11/15: NEW GRAND CHAMPION!!! Felina finished her GCH with four 5-pt majors, one 4-pt major (four under breeder judges), and two singles, in three weekends of showing! Pictured below going BOS at the LVBC pm specialty under renowned UK Breeder-Judge Kevin Davis of the Mystyle Bulldog Kennels. Thank you breeder judges Fred Haynes, Dan Bandy and Marcie Dobkin, and all-breed judge Anne Katona, for the other majors towards her GCH!
GCH Gunslinger Wicked Felina
(CH Empires Gunslingin' Calico Queen x CH Gunslinger Pale Rider)
Out in the West Texas town of El Paso
I fell in love with a Mexican girl
Night-time would find me in Rosa's cantina
Music would play and Felina would whirl
Blacker than night were the eyes of Felina
Wicked and evil while casting a spell
My love was deep for this Mexican maiden
I was in love but in vain, I could tell
One night a wild young cowboy came in
Wild as the West Texas wind
Dashing and daring
A drink he was sharing
With Wicked Felina
The girl that I love
So ... in anger I
Challenged his right for the love of this maiden
Down went his hand for the gun that he wore
My challenge was answered in less than a heart beat
The handsome young stranger lay dead on the floor
Out through the back door of Rosa's I ran
Out where the horses were tied
I caught a good one
It looked like it could run
Up on its back and away I did ride
Just as fast as I
Could from the West Texas town of El Paso
Out to the Badlands of New Mexico
Back in El Paso my life would be worthless
Everything's gone in life, nothing is left
It's been so long since I've seen the young maiden
My love is stronger than my fear of death

I saddled up and away I did go
Riding alone in the dark
Maybe tomorrow a bullet may find me
Tonight nothing's worse than this
Pain in my heart
And at last here I am
On the hill overlooking El Paso
I can see Rosa's cantina below
My love is strong and it pushes me onward
Down off the hill to Felina I go
Off to my right I see five mounted cowboys
Off to my left ride a dozen or more
Shouting and shooting, I can't let them catch me
I have to make it to Rosa's back door
Something is dreadfully wrong for I feel
A deep burning pain in my side
Though I am trying to stay in the saddle
I'm getting weary, unable to ride
But my love for
Felina is strong and I rise where I've fallen
Though I am weary I can't stop to rest
I see the white puff of smoke from the rifle
I feel the bullet go deep in my chest
From out of nowhere Felina has found me
Kissing my cheek as she kneels by my side
Cradled by two loving arms that I'll die for
One little kiss and Felina, good-bye
