Upcoming Stars

Elante Stop and Stare


(Ch. Ashcroft Happy Talk x Elante Eenie Meenie Miney Moe)

Sherman has been waiting in the wings to be shown, while we were finishing Bucky's Championship.  Now that Bucky is finished, and being shown as a special, Sherman will be brought out to show. 

He was a singleton puppy, and is a little dynamo, with that "look at me attitude".  He believes the world revolves around him, and we're not going to tell him anything different!

Bucky shown winning Best of Breed his first time shown!

Bucky started his show career in February 2017, only being entered one day at an all-breed show.  Although we knew he was "special", he shocked all of us, winning Best of Breed over a lovely entry, including Specials. 

Originally, we had planned on a breeding using frozen semen from our foundation sire; Ch. Touchwoods Foolish Pleasure II (Oliver)  Unfortunately, although semen had been frozen ten years prior, when we went to use it, we were notified that it had been "destroyed" in an accident at the collection facility.  Through the generosity of Ron and Sharon Kercher, we were able to use semen they had frozen from a national specialty winning son of Olivers, and we couldn't have been happier with what we got (well okay, there could have been one girl in the litter)

We have every reason to believe that Bucky, like fine wine, will get better and better with age and a little ring training!!

Bucky just attended the BTCA Western National Specialty on August 16, 2017 and went Best of Opposite Sex in Sweepstakes, and Reserve Winners Dog in the regular classes.  The next day at the Denver Specialty, he went Best in Sweepstakes, and Reserve Winners Dog Again.  He then went Winners Dog on Sunday.  We have high hopes for this boy, who is a pleasure to show!
