Timothy fulfilled our dreams at Cerise of producing the finest Special in our years of breeding. He has exceeded those dreams. He carries in his pedigree the very best producing and competing dogs of the past from kennels such as Salilyn, Southampton, Rendition, Telltale, and our own Cerise top dogs. He never disappointed, winning Breed as a class dog in a Specialty weekend and becoming an instant success as a Special.

In 2015, he was Runner-Up Show Springer, and now in 2016, Show Springer and Show Dog. He is the #1 English Springer Spaniel, #2 Sporting Dog, and #4 All-Breed. Wow! In March 2017, he has 265 Group Firsts, and 45 All-Breed Best in Show wins.

Howard Huber deserves enormous credit for the love and dedication he gave Timmy, fine tuning Timmy's excellent traits while maintaing his joyful personality.

During his show career, Griffen was a multiple Best in Show and group winner as well as a multiple specialty Best of Breed winner.

He is now semi retired and proving himself as an outstanding producer, having sired a BIS winner and many champions as well. We look forward to what Griffen has to offer our breed as a sire.

- Duchess -
Owned by Gail Walston, and Dorothy Cherry
Bred by Dorothy Cherry and Kathryn Kirk
362 Breed Points

Duchess was a star from the start, winning Best in Sweeps at the 2010 National, and Winners Bitch in 2011, shown by Meagan Ulfers. She was later campaigned to great success by Howie Huber, including back-to-back Best of Breed at Eastern ESS Club.

This year is her second Runner-Up Show Bitch of Year award, despite multiple litters. She has not missed a beat!

Gail Walston has shown Duchess in the West in 2016 and we thank Gail for the loving care she bestows on our Duchess, even allowing Duchess to sleep with her and accompany her to work, to say nothing of Best of Breed and multiple OS at Specialties. They are a great team…so much love on both sides!

There will never be another Zelda. She was a phenomenon. Zelda was OS in Sweeps during National week as a puppy and went on to be campaigned by Howard Huber in 2010 and 2011. She was Show Springer of the Year in 2010 and #1 Sporting Bitch and #3 Sporting Dog in 2011. She had 17 All-Breed Best in Show wins, and 96 Group Firsts in her career. She won OS twice at Westminster Kennel Club and OS at Eastern after several litters. She had 14 champions in 2016, and a career total of 24 champions with a 25th short one point. And she is still competitve at Eastern and the National as a Veteran.

Zelda is the very best of the Cerise bitches who are themselves an impressive group. She lives with Kathy Kirk, sleeping in her bed, always there to welcome her home.
