CH LYNLEE’S FOX RIVER SWEET PEA CD RE JH OJP OAP VCX WD CGC
Our Molly is our first Welsh Springer Spaniel. This breed is somewhat unknown around the states. Only about sixty litters are born in the US each year. Molly is one of very few Welshies in Northeast Wisconsin. She was bred from the Lynlee line in Arizona. She loves water and will hit all the puddles and jumps right into the Fox River when given the chance.
Molly finished her championship in July 2006 owner-handled. She also finished her Rally Excellent title at the Welsh Springer Nationals in May 2006. Molly earned the title of Hunting Bitch at the April 2008 Welsh Springer Nationals. Molly and Andrea continue to work in the field and are proud to announce that Molly earned her Junior Hunter title June of 2008.
The Welsh Springer Spaniel Club of America also awards dogs with their breed championship, an obedience title, and a hunting title, the award called the Versatility Exellence Certificate – VCX. Molly completed those requirements for her certificate the summer of 2005.
This picture to the left was taken by our daughter Amy, of Molly at nine weeks old retrieving a pigeon. She was attending a flushing spaniel hunting seminar with Obie and Lucy. Molly was the only Welshie there and also the youngest dog. Molly is very birdy and loves to hunt and loves to be outdoors. Molly is an excellent and well-rounded little girl with the sweetest personality; hence her name. December 2006 Molly was bred to Rolyart’s CH Don’s Full Fig –“Fig” a Swedish import.
We were very pleased to announce that Molly whelped her first litter of pups, nine girls, on February 22, 2007. In August of 2009 Molly and Andrea finished the novice agility titles – NAP and NJP competing in only four days of shows. Molly earned four first place ribbons and two second place ribbons. Five of the legs were perfect runs at 100 points and one at 94. August 2010 she earned her second and third legs of her open preferred jumpers agility title with two first and one second place finishes. We completed her final agility trialing in August of 2011 winning her third leg in open standard preferred with a 100 and a first place. These days Molly has been retired from competition, though we are considering Barn Hunt with her. She still rules the roost over both Welshies and Cockers!
