Owner Karen took her into the ring for Best of Breed. She is now CH Fox River Prairie Fire Such Gladness CGC TKN. Karen and I are looking at stud dogs now in anticipation of a litter in 2020. Congratulations!
Life has a way of taking turns and different paths when you are least expecting them. And it has for me. July 4th, Tim – my husband of almost 49 years, was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. Forty two days later, he was gone. My daughters and I miss him like the dickens. So do my dogs. Tim always called himself my “kennel boy” but he sure was much more than that.
In June, Pete tested for his Therapy Dog Excellent title. Doesn’t he look good in red, white and blue? Congrats to his owner and handler Karen!
May 19, 2019 at the Oshkosh Kennel Club’s show, Tilly earned her last point for her breed championship. Good job Tilly!
So very proud of my crew at the Nationals. Winnie was highest scoring WSS in novice obedience and novice rally – new RN title, new tracking title TD, Iron Welsh Challenge recipient – Bronze. Higgins earned a Junior Hunter leg and was awarded Best Hunting Dog. Tilly placed in Bred By Exhibitor. Polo strutted his stuff with Amy in the 7-9 year old veterans. And of course, all of the Fox River Family entered as well.
Winnie earned her second and third leg of Beginner Novice on February 9th at the Sheboygan Dog Training Club’s obedience trial. She won a 1st and 2nd placement! She is now GCH CH Fox River Sweet Solitude BN CGC. Judges were Patricia Nevins and Cynthia Pischke (pictured).
Here is Lisa, with a big shit-eating grin, as Dragon earned her 1st major on Sunday, January 13th at the Winnegamie Kennel Club’s Oshkosh show! WTG!
We here at Fox River Spaniels wish all of you a happy new year. May 2019 be a good one for all – dogs and humans alike!
Does my niece Katie really know me or what? Only thing is that dog needs to have an “S ” at the end! Thank you Katie! Love it!
Becky and Nathan sent this great photo of Oso and his birds. Oso is out of our Rose and just turned 10 years old. Thanks for loving this little guy and for letting him do what he was bred to do – hunt!
