Cuddy is a moderate bitch, around 54 pounds. She is very smart and a pleaser who loves to be in any ring. She is a joy to show in the breed ring where she shines naturally, and is fast and attentive in the rally ring. She got her first two CD legs at our first two obedience trials, and her title at our third. Cuddy regularly wins her rally class with very high scores and with limited training, and she has never had an NQ. Cuddy qualified for the 2019 AKC Rally National Championship in the Advanced Class. She is currently training for obedience competition. Cuddy has a beautiful, thick, dark gold coat with lighter furnishings and a lot of undercoat. She has some light eye lashes and some white hairs on her muzzle, but is still largely her original darker gold color at 8 years. She has a gorgeous free stack, a rock hard level top line, and a lot of neck. She is beautifully balanced with correct shoulder lay back and great angles front and rear. 5 of her CH points were breeder owner handled (my first show dog) out of BBE, and her GCH was breeder owner handled. She has been a wonderful dog for my young junior handler, and Cuddy has recently reentered the ring as a veteran. She is obviously thrilled to be back, because she loves performing in the breed ring. She produced well, with a number of titled pups including two qualifying progeny toward her OD at young ages - (EtaDOro's Chasin' ZZZZ Dream BN MX MXJ DSX DJ GCG TKI CCA, and EtaDOro Red Top Hat MX AXJ NAP NJP NF), pups with agility, obedience, rally, tracking, and nose work titles, and pups with points toward their CH. Her pups participate with great success in all disciplines - agility, tracking, obedience, rally, nose work, and conformation. She has pups in field training. Cuddy’s last litter, eight pups, arrived 3 days before her eighth birthday, another good sized litter even at that age.
Maggie is a substantial girl, good size with a lot of bone. She has a gorgeous, correct, wavy and easy to manage light color coat, jet black pigment, level top line, correct tail set, and a lot of neck. She is very well proportioned, and moves out beautifully in the breed ring. She is correct coming and going, and stacks just beautifully. Maggie has a lovely headpiece, and great spring of rib. Maggie has been breeder owner handled to 9 points and one major, and has 10 CH points total.
A Coach daughter and Yogi granddaughter with a fantastic pedigree, Libby produced wonderfully as my foundation. She was the perfect choice and started something very good. She has OFA Excellent hips, and she gets her eyes checked every year for a clearance. She produced two GCH out of her first litter, and later a third GCH, all three of which have continued into other disciplines with success. Her kids and grandkids are smart with wonderful dispositions, and are show or performance dogs, active gun dogs, certified therapy dogs, and much loved family pets. Libby's kids are now producing lovely and talented offspring. I'm always happy when buyers of Libby's pups come back for a second dog or refer me to their families and friends. Even at more than 11 years old, Libby moves beautifully, clean coming and going, with a smooth, elastic gait. She has correct, full dentition and a perfect bite, not even dropped incisors. She has a beautiful face, and very wavy light color coat with lightest furnishings. Libby won veterans sweeps twice on a specialty weekend at age 7, her first times in the ring! A puppy at heart, she is still energetic and athletic, and loves to run and wrestle with the next generations. She shows no signs of her age, or of slowing down.
Islay's pedigree is fantastic, and the mix of Kent and Cuddy produced a consistent litter with predictably great type. We look forward to watching them all grow. Islay already has wonderful, correct coat, good bone, and a lot of other nice things going on in terms of her conformation. She is attentive and easy to train. We hope to have her out for 4-6 month puppy shows, and soon after for rally and obedience until she grows up a bit.
