1985  Puppies and shows abound. Pacific Pride of Stormhill, now a champion, sires Choice’s F-litter with Wild West’s sister Ch. Choice West Whirlwind and N-litter with Do Believe It. Several of the puppies are exported. Boy What A Girl, now a champion, wins the breed at the Skokloster specialty. Star Chaser becomes the kennel’s 2nd International champion.
Ch. Choice Now or Never
Wild West gains another Finnish Winner title and once again wins the “Afghan of the Year” and “Sighthound of the Year” competitions. His son Be A Pepper is runner-up in the “Afghan of the Year” competition.

Ch. Choice Souvenir
1986   Another stellar year despite freak accident. Be A Pepper secures his International championship title, follows his sister’s footsteps by winning the breed at the Skokloster specialty and even beats his father for the title at the Nordic Winner show. Wild West gets another Finnish Winner title and makes it to five shows before breaking his front leg in a freak accident in June. Despite only recovering in time to attend one more show, he still manages to secure the “Afghan of the Year” and “Sighthound of the Year” titles. His son Be A Pepper is again second and his daughter Ch. Sonate’s Soul Sister is the highest placing bitch.

Star Chaser is bred to Int. Ch. Rahzmundah Psidium and produces a stellar litter with five champions, including future champions Choice Souvenir and Choice Sun Chaser.

1987  Wild West bids farewell to the shows. Ch. Choice Cream Dream is bred to Int. Ch. El Khyrias Never Say Never Again; the resulting litter includes future star Choice Daddy Be Cool who gets to stay home. Wild West sires his last litter with Int. Ch. Coastwind Celesta. Be A Pepper wins the afghan specialty at Skokloster. Wild West, now 9 years old, adds countless wins to his record, including his 19th BIS, and wins the “Afghan of the Year” competition for an incredible sixth time. His son Be A Pepper is third this year and Ch. Choice Sun Chaser is the top-ranked bitch.

3 generations: Ch. Choice Pretty In Pink, Int. Ch. Choice Star Chaser and Ch. Choice West Whirlwind
1988  Be A Pepper takes over. With his father retired from official shows, Be A Pepper attempts to make his own mark and succeeds in winning the “Sighthound of the Year” competition, while missing the “Afghan of the Year” title by one measly point. Wild West is shown for the last time at an invitational event. Fittingly, the judge who awarded him his first BIS win gives him the “Veteran of Veterans” title. Star Chaser has her second litter, this time sired by Be A Pepper, producing four future champions including Choice Pretty In Pink and Choice Putting On Fire.
