Player has done
it again!!! At the English Cocker Spaniel Sweepstakes held at the 91st
American Spaniel Club show, Player went
4th in the 12-15 Month
Dog Class. The ASC show was held in a new location in January
2005--King of Prussia, PA. The judge for the Sweepstakes was Kerri
Player is not yet one year old and he
continues to impress and amaze us. At the English Cocker Spaniel Club
of America Supported Entry at the Salisbury Maryland Kennel Club show November 6, 2004, Player won the 9-12
Months Puppy Dogs Sweepstakes under Judge Barbara Dzbinski. Then
immediately following the Sweepstakes, out of a total of 32 entries, Player
won Best of Breed under Judge Bonnie Threlfall!!! His call name may be
"Player" but he's all business in the ring. We couldn't be happier.
Player is just over 8 months old and he's the youngest champion I have ever
finished. What an impact he has made in the ring since his debut at
the National in Colorado Springs in May of 2004. Keep your eyes
on this very special orange roan boy. We're just getting
What a weekend
at the "Roanoke" shows!!!!! On Friday, July 30, 2004, at the Roanoke
Kennel Club show in Salem, VA, Player went Best of Winners to pick up a
4-point major!!!!! Our thanks to Judge Jon Cole for this awesome
win. Then, would you believe it??!!! On Saturday, at the next
Roanoke Kennel Club show, Judge Chuck Herendeen also gave Player Best of
Winners for, guess what? Another 4-point major. WOW!!!!
And if this wasn't enough, on Sunday at the New River Valley Kennel Club
show, Judge Houston Clark gave Player still another Best of Winners for a
third 4-point major. This finished his championship in 6 weeks
with a total of 18 points, including three 4-point majors!!!! I'm
walking on clouds!!!
Player picked up
3 more points at the Shawnee Kennel Club shows in Berryville, VA on
Saturday, July 10 and Sunday July 11, 2004. He went Best of Opposite
Sex both days getting 1 point on Saturday under Judge Judy Doniere and 2
points on Sunday under Judge Stephen Hurt. Six points and counting!!!!
Winners!!!! After winning Winners Dog at the Catoctin Kennel Club show
in West Friendship, MD on July 1, 2004, Player picked up 2 more points after
Judge James Burns awarded him Best of Winners!!! Good way to start the
month of July!!
Player got his
first point on a sunny Saturday, June 19, 2004, at the Virginia Kennel Club
show in Richmond. Judge Dr. Robert Berndt awarded him Winners Dog AND Best
of Winners! Not bad for a puppy that isn't 7 months old yet.
We are so proud to announce that at Player's debut on May 24, 2004 at the
English Cocker Spaniel Fanciers of Greater Denver Specialty show in Colorado
Springs, CO, Judge Jean Gillespie (UK) awarded him "Best Puppy in Regular Classes"!!!!!!!
We are bursting with pride!!!!
