11/02/2011 - A little more news to share. Last weekend, Jennifer took Bentley, Radiance N' Calypso's Classic Bentley, and Chloe, Calypso Can't Catch Me CD RE, to the BC Cocker Specialty show in Canada. Bentley went RWD at the specialty and Chloe went HIT from the Novice B class with a score of 197!!! She also took Halo to the all breed shows in Ridgefield, WA, where Halo went WD/BOW to finish his CH, completely owner handled by Jennifer!! Yay for Halo, who is now Ch Calypso's Hidden Halo RA. At those all breed shows, Jennifer also took Bentley to a CGC test and he passed! Good job Bentley! I've also heard of a few more wins and titles by Calypso dogs this year. Calypso Bonnie Sailor CDX, Sailor, from our B Litter, earned her CDX in Canada. Calypso Inspiration Strikes, Ivy, has earned two legs towards her RN title and also has her CGC.  Calypso Dancing With The Star, Hastings, owned by Melinda McKinley, has earned 7 points towards his Ch title this year. Hastings is from our Dance litter.  Also, Mocha, Ch Terigen Larkspur Chocolatte, earned her last point towards her Championship at the Richland Kennel Club shows in Kennewick, WA. Thanks to Melissa for showing her and congrats to her breeders, Elizabeth Slabe and Nancy Garigen.

The puppies are growing quickly and keeping me super busy. Hard to believe how quickly this last month has gone by! Here is a video of the Adventure Litter playing at age 3 weeks:

10/08/2011 - It's been a very long time since this website has been updated! For personal reasons the dogs have taken a back seat for the past year. I'm happy to say, though, that I'm starting to get out to dog shows a bit more and I currently have puppies at home for the first time in over a year. It's a good month (-: I'm currently located part time in Texas and part time in Washington. I'll be doing dog shows occasionally in both states.

Even though it has been a quiet year with the dogs and I've done minimal dog shows, there is quite a bit of news to share. At the National Specialty in May, several Dusty kids won their classes. Dusty now has multiple kids who have won points at specialty shows. Radiance N Calypso's Classic Bentley, Bentley, went WD/BOW at a CECSF supported entry show in August for a 4 pt major. My Lexi, Flyers Queens, who currently has a litter of puppies sired by Bentley, earned her first major in June by going WB/BOW/BOB at the Puyallup show. She'll be back out at shows in the Fall if she will just grow a bit more coat (-: In performance, Calypso's Golden Attraction, Gina, owned Cheryl Gallup, finished her CDX title. Calypso's Hidden Halo, Halo, finished his Rally Advanced title and also earned a few conformation points. He now needs just one single to finish his AKC Championship, completely owned handled by Jennifer Vandecar. Calypso's Can't Catch Me, Chloe, also owned by Jennifer, earned a couple of RAE legs and a couple of legs towards her CDX, Chloe earned one of these legs with a HIT win at the Greater Denver English Cocker Specialty show held right before the ECSCA National Specialty show in May.

In addition to this, Jacob, Ch Calypso's New Moon Rising, finished his AKC Championship with four majors and GrCH Calypso's Hollywood Drama, Howard, finished his AKC Grand Champion title.
