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. We pretty much took all the wins this weekend – truly a weekend to remember! Awesome friends and beautiful dogs. So proud!
