My involvement with dogs started in 1977 with my first dog being a Labrador, followed by Golden Retrievers. I had Goldens for more than 15 years and enjoyed many fine wins in the Show and Obedience rings. My dogs have always been a huge part of my life and as you can see have shared in everything. Even my wedding day!
I purchased my first Cocker in 1998 her name was "Annie". I have never looked back as this merry little dog has surely endeared me to this breed. She is the mother of both "Riley" - AUST CH Braycharm Soul Revival and "Polly" - AUST CH Braycharm China Blue.
She was closely followed by a light blue bitch called Matilda. Both bitches I titled with ease.
Then came the Grand gentleman himself "Solomon" - Grand Champion Cinetta The Wise Guy or better know to my kids as Wiggle Bum! Solomon and I shared some great wins and he was always in the placing at major shows. He was a Runner Up Best In Show Winner, Multi Class in Group and In Show winner at All Breeds and Specialty shows alike. He had some great wins under Local, Interstate and International Judges including Breed Specialist. I lost this special man on the 10th April, 2010, his ever wagging tail and beautiful nature are missed by all who knew him.
I am very grateful to all the people who have helped me along the way - John Edwards (Marsden), Ann & Dennis O'Keefe (Glenayden), Karleen Bennett & Linda Kantek (Royoni), Sue McFdden (Glenbriar) and to all the many friends I have made in and out of the breed.
