The team of Lisa Sinke and Adam – Fox River Naniboujou, earned their OTCH – Obedience Trial Champion title today. Tons of work went into this win and I am so proud of all that she has done with this little black and tan English Cocker.
We have bred our beautiful Shandy, Fox River Firefly to Justin, CH Dawnglow Justice. Puppies expected this spring! We haven’t had an English Cocker litter in four years. We are excited!
Our Dilly and Spike are due with a litter this spring with July placements. Very excited about this litter! Well, we are excited about every litter. They are all special! Here is her ultrasound. How many puppies do you see?
Dibbins – CH Fox River Haf Gymraeg JH WD was bred to Polo – GCH CH Fox River Lambeau Leap CGC. Dibbins whelped six beautiful puppies on the 27th of February. She has three girls and three boys!
Shandy (Fox River Firefly), seldom shown in conformation, took a 3 point major at the Saturday January 16th dog show in Oshkosh. Thank you all my English Cocker friends for your help! Marie Murphy thanks for the photo!
Saturday, January 9th, Violet and I braved the wicked Wisconsin weather to travel to Ixonia to pick up that last leg toward her title. Violet rose to the challenge! She is now GCH CH Fox River Queen Anne’s Lace RE CD BN CGC. Way to go Violet!
Saturday December 5th, 2015 in Rosemont, Illinois, Dibbins handled by Birkleigh earned her final point to give her her breed championship. We will be breeding Dibbins this spring.
Fox River Spaniels owners entered the Heartland Welsh Springer Spaniel supported entry in Winona, MN the first weekend in November. It was a huge win for us. Higgins went Best of Breed both days earning a 1st place in owner-handler and a 4th place in the regular group. Our first time ever in the group rings! Dibbins went Winners Bitch, Best of Winners and Best of Opposite on Saturday. Winnie went Winners Bitch and Best of Winners on Sunday. Sully went Winners Dog on Sunday. Dilly went Best of Opposite on Sunday. Cammie Select Bitch also on Sunday. And our newest, Saylor, took a group 4th in Best Puppy on Saturday.
