     "Dodger" December, 2005 at age 6

After losing Trevor, poor James was so lonely it was heartbreaking. He would cry and cry. As I had already made plans to attend the English Setter National show in Green Bay, my intent was to find a nice pup as soon as possible.

Thanks to Angie & Craig Sparkes, I found a nice liter of pups bread by Shirley Hoeflinger and Ray Lynne Snowden out of their "Travis," Ch. Honeygait Goodtime Hot Topic. 

When I met the little critter, I knew he was mine. Feisty, smart, and super affectionate. My kind of dog.

We started showing Dodger just after he turned 6 months old. He quickly earned his first 9 points and need his two major wins to finish his championship. Unfortunately, there were none in our area for him to compete. We sent him to a cluster of shows in Arizona and he quickly won two 5 point major shows finishing his championship at 22 months of age. A big "thank you" to Bruce Schultz and Randy Schepper for handling him to his championship.

Dodger's eyes are so dark and reflective, you can see images of the trees in our back yard in them.
