What's new at Ocoee.

Willie completed his Championship title with all majors (five of them!), most of them coming at Specialty or supported entry shows. He was completely owner handled to his title by Laura Burke.

Willie is from the repeat breeding of Ch Ocoee Figure It out ex Ch. Ocoee Go Wild. He is the treasured house pet of the Burke family. We thank them for finishing him so handsomely!

April 30- We are so happy with how well our family of dogs fared at the GCESSC Specialties in CA last weekend. Baby Wesley (Ocoee Wild About Hunter) was BOS in Sweeps, WD, BW and Best Puppy (and a four point major!) on Saturday, handled by his owner Sandy McKinney. He was again BOS in sweeps on Sunday and first in his regular class!

On Saturday Ocoee and Heartlands on her Way, owner handled by Nancy Amante, was 1st in the Open Bitch class. "Connie" needs just one point to complete her CH title.

Also on Saturday, Benny's beautiful daughter Pridemarks's Lasting Affection, was WB from the BBE class for four points, handled by her breeder owner Tammy Osborn. She was RWB on Sunday too.

Way to go gang!!


April 2014 Update!

We are thrilled to announce that Melanie and George won their 16th and 17th Specialty Best of Breeds at the back to back Sacramento ESSC shows!

We are also thrilled to share that George is the ESSFTA Show Dog of the Year AND the Sire of the Year for 2013! We are humbled and grateful by how this dog has been accepted by the Springer community and the dog fancy in general.

Our Wild Bunch boys are off and running! Congratulations to Karen Clower in Texas and her Ocoee Out Of The Wild on a Specialty Best in Sweepstakes, two Specialty Reserves and a Best Puppy! And to Sandy McKinney and her Ocoee Wild About Hunter who has won two Best in Sweepstakes, one BOS in Sweepstakes, a Specialty Reserve and a Best Puppy! Keep up the good work boys. We are looking forward to the other litter mates starting out soon.



As we enter our 42nd year with this wonderful breed, we are so gratified to look back at 2013 and the amazing successes that we had.

Melanie and her boy George finished the year as #1 Springer all systems, and he was shown only at about half the number of shows that his closest competitors were. Winning the National, and the Top Twenty, and the breed at the AKC/Eukanuba show, were all highlights that we will never forget.

We were also thrilled that many new Champions that we bred, and many more sired by our stud dogs, finished in 2013. There are more just around the corner.

Our first CH of 2014 is the lovely Ch. Ocoee Out of Bounds, by Ch. Ocoee Figure It Out ex Ch. Legendary Elegant Shimmer. He is owned by Gay Bunnell and was shown by Julie Kay. He finished at a very young age and had multiple Specialty wins!

Our 'Wild Bunch' litter, by Ch. Ocoee Figure It Out ex Ch. Ocoee Go Wild! have just started their careers and we are so proud of Wesley (Ocoee Wild About Hunter) for bringing in the first Best in Sweepstakes!!! We are so excited about the future of all five of these smashing littermates.
