Am/Can. Ch. Ocoee Have An Absolute Ball


Rugby finished his championship handled by Melanie with four majors (two five point and two three point) from the BBE class. Amazingly, he was shown at only four all breed dog shows and he received a major at each of them, Best of Winners each time and once Best of Breed over seven Specials. Rugby is OFA Excellent, elbow normal, OFA Cardiac Normal, CERF certified, a DNA PRA carrier and a proven sire.

Though bred only a few times, Rugby has CH and performance titled children who have made us proud. We would particularly like to mention CH OTCH MACH Polesitter's Absolute Victory who was the Parent Club Obedience Springer of the Year for 2013 at a very young age! Kudo's to his breeder Mike Bockhorn and his owner/trainer Kim Berkley.

Ch. Ocoee Absolute Possession

Marilyn completed her title a week past her second birthday, with all majors (4-4-4-5) from the BBE class. She was RWB and Best in BBE classes at the Saturday Chattahoochee Specialty and BW and Best in BBE classes at the Sunday specialty to finish her title in great style. Marilyn was shown at a total of nine dog shows, four Specialties and five all-breeds. She's OFA good, OFA Cardiac Normal and CERF Normal.

Marilyn has been a priceless producer. She has seven Ch children. Her gorgeous son Ch. Ocoee Go Figure and beautiful daughter Ch. Ocoee Go Wild! are proving to carry on her amazing producing ability while she snuggles on the sofa at Mel's with George.
Pictured below is Millie, who is by Ch. Springbrook Tagalong My Own Magic out of Ch. Pawmarc's Neon Hightlights. She was bred by Pat Wilaby and Bobbie Daniel. Millie is a fifth generation descendant of the bitch we sold Pat many years ago Ch. Ocoee Whispering Jesse, and she has eleven crosses in her pedigree to our foundation sire, Ch. Winacko's Classic Replay CD.

At her first dog show in January of 2006, Millie was Best In Sweepstakes over an entry of 65 puppies. Shown at a total of eight all breed shows, she was WB or better seven times. At Specialties she was BW at the ESSCM annual fall specialty, RWB at four other Specialties and 3rd in Open at the 2007 ESSFTA National. She finished with 17 points, three majors, shown exclusively by Kathy.

Millie is OFA Good, OFA Elbow Normal, OFA Cardiac Normal and OFA Eye Normal. She proved to be an outstanding brood bitch in every way and her children are as smart and beautiful as she is. She has eight CH children. We lost Millie in January of 2017, just shy of her 12th birthday. There will never be another like her!

Gold Grand Ch.Ocoee DSQD With A Vengeance

Meet "George"! He is from our spring 2008 litter by Ch. Sprucehaven Under Time NA NAP NAJ WD ex Ch. Will-Orion's Illusion.

George's career has been nothing short of amazing. He won Best in Sweepstakes at both 2009 Chattahoochee Specialty shows and at the 2009 Eastern ESSC Specialty. He completed his title with three five point Specialty majors (Eastern, Michigan and TCVESSA) and an extra major from the puppy class!

He was Best Puppy in the ESSCM Invitational Puppy Extravaganza.

George has had a wonderful career. Exclusively breeder owner handled by Melanie, he is a multiple all Best In Show winner and to date has thirty eight Specialty Best of Breed wins including both the 2013 and 2016 National Specialties! He is the all time top specialty winner in the history of the breed. He finished 2013 as the #1 Springer in America all systems.

George has been in the top ten breed competition for six consecutive years, though shown sparingly and since the end of 2013 only at Specialty shows.

At the 2012 National Specialty, George was the People's Choice Award Winner at the Top Twenty event, and won a Judge's Award Of Merit! He was also sire of the lovely puppy that won Best In Sweepstakes at the National. AT the 2014 National he not only won the Breed but also the Top Twenty competition!

George is OFA fair, OFA Cardiac Normal, OFA Patella Normal, OFA Eye Normal and a PRA DNA carrier.

He has sixteen CH children and earned the honor of ESSFTA Sire of the Year for 2013!

Meet Theo, the boy we kept from Ch. Silverhill Sea Dog Go out of Ch. Ocoee Absolute Possession. He was born January 11, 2009.

Theo has been a breeders dream come true. He started his career with:

Best in Sweepstakes at the National Specialty from the 6-9 class and 1st in the regular 6-9 class!

Following this auspicious debut, Theo never looked back. Shown in nine Specialty Sweepstakes, he was Best In Sweeps at six of them and Best of Opposite Sex at one.

He finished his title by going BW and Best Puppy at American Spaniel Club in 2010, then two weeks later going WD at Chattahoochee ESSC, then at his very next Specialty (Susquehanna Valley) he was BW for his third Specialty major and his title at 14 months of age!

At just two years of age he was Best In Show at the Chattahoochee Specialty show over a huge entry and the following year he once again won Best of Breed at Chattahoochee.

At the 2012 National Specialty, Theo thrilled us by winning first award of merit in an entry of 88 Specials. His career took a back seat to George but we are very proud of his wonderful wins in extremely limited showing.

Theo is already the sire of nine American Champions and three Canadian Champions with more on the way. We think he is a super sire!

Theo is OFA hips Excellent, OFA Cardiac Normal and OFA Eye Normal 7/2015.

Theo sired only seven litters of puppies before having to be neutered due to a complicated hernia surgery. Unfortunately we do not have semen on him, but we have gorgeous babies born May 2015 from his last litter, his son Benny and grandson Russell, both pictured below. Theo found his perfect forever home early this year with a wonderful gentleman named Mike Cain. He loves being a spoiled only dog!

Benny is Theo's first born son, out of Ch. Pawmarc Ocoee Light The Way.

He has been so much fun! Best of Winners for five points at his very first show at seven months of age, then Best in Sweepstakes at American Spaniel Club, then Best of Winners at WESSA, then Best in Sweeps and Puppy of the Year at ESSCM!

Benny finished as BW at the Des Moines Specialty in September 2013. He is OFA hips Excellent, OFA elbow normal, OFA Cardiac normal, OFA Eye Normal and a PRA DNA Carrier. He is SO LIKE his ancestor Living Proof, I absolutely adore this dog.

Benny is proving to be a wonderful and consistent sire. He already has eleven CH children and many pointed and Specialty winning kids from only a handful of litters. He has many exciting offspring that will be in the ring in 2017 and beyond.

Jolie is the only girl from two breedings of our Ch. Ocoee Absolute Possession to GCh. Silverhill Sea Dog Go. It only takes one if it is a great one and that is what we think Jolie is!

Shown only a mere handful of times, Jolie won Best in Sweepstakes, BBE Sporting Groups and BW at TCVESSA, BW and BOS at ESSFTA Supported entry show at Ft Wayne, and to finish she was WB, BW and BB over many specials at TCVESSA under breeder judge Judi Andersen!!

We think that Jolie is the best bitch we have ever bred and her producing ability appears to be very strong. She has four CH sons sired by Ch Ocoee Go Figure, a major pointed son by Ch. Ocoee Legendary Figure, and four young up and coming children sired by Ch Blackpearl N TDP Star Studded Banner and Ocoee You Only Live Once.

Jolie is OFA Hips Good Eye Normal Cardiac Normal and a PRA DNA Carrier.

Ch. Ocoee Go Wild

Grand Ch.Ocoee Away We Go
Zac Brown is the boy that we kept from the second breeding of Theo and Millie. He beautifully represents the best of both of his parents.

Shown only five weekends and at the National, Zac finished with three Specialty majors, two Best in Sweepstakes and first in his sweeps class at the National. He is OFA Good, Elbow Normal, Patella Normal and CERF eye normal.

Zac moved to the Pacific Northwest where he had a brief specials career with Ellen Cottingham, becoming an all breed and specialty Best in Show winner and a top ten Springer. He is the sire of three Champions and is available at stud with his owner Kathy Niebruegge in California.

Penny is by Gold GCH Ocoee D sqd With a Vengeance out of Ocoee Light In The Moon. She finished her title so fast we barely got to enjoy showing her! Four majors all from the puppy or BBE class, including a Specialty major and a Specialty Best in Sweepstakes.

Penny is OFA Good, OFA eye normal, OFA Cardiac Normal and PRA DNA normal.

Miss Penny went to live with our friend Ben Early (he needed a personal bed dog!)and comes home to Ocoee in the spring to have babies. We couldn't be more thrilled with her producing ability. Son Russell finished in a flash with all majors, daughter Elle has two specialty majors, son Henry has a Specialty Best in Sweepstakes and two four point majors, and youngsters Katie and Cameron will begin soon.

Ch. Ocoee Vengeance Is Mine

Ch. Pawmarc Ocoee Dazzled By Magic
Beautiful 'Tiffany' comes to us from our long time friend and collaborator Pat Wilaby Jansen at Pawmarc. She is by Ch Tiffany's Esspecial Magic Kingdom out of Grand Ch. Pawmarc Dazzle Me Bright. Tiffany's pedigree incorporates many of our dogs from the past.

Tiffany was 1st in a very large 6-9 class at the 2013 National Specialty and BOS in Sweeps at Chattahoochee in 2014. Shown only a handful of times she finished her title before her second birthday with four majors, the final one coming as five points at the 2015 Chattahoochee Specialty!

Tiffany is OFA Hips Good, Elbows Normal, Eye Normal, Cardiac Normal and PRA DNA Normal. She has a beautiful young son sired by Ocoee You Only Live Twice back in the Northwest with Pat Wilaby, and she is currently in whelp to Ch Ocoee It Figures!
Russell is the boy we kept from the May 2014 litter by Ch. Ocoee Figure It Out ex Ch. Ocoee Vengeance Is Mine. We just love him! His first Specialty weekend at Chattahoochee he won three out of four of his 6-9 classes. His very next show was an ESSCM supported entry where he was BOS in Sweeps and BW for a major from the BBE class at ten months of age. He then won two big Specialty majors from the BBE class at 12 and 13 months of age, and finished with another four point major at the ESSFTA supported entry show when he was 17 months old!

Russell is OFA hips excellent, elbows normal, cardiac normal, PFK normal, eye normal and PRA DNA normal. We have high hopes for this boy as both a show dog and a sire. He has pointed puppies from his first two litters!

Ch. Ocoee It Figures!

Ocoee You Only Live Once
By Ch Ocoee Go Figure ex Ch Ocoee Vengeance Is Mine, Henry is very special to us because he is our last Theo son. He was born 5/23/2015.

He has been shown only at eight shows to date, six of them Specialties. He has a Specialty Best in Sweepstakes and three four point majors from the BBE class, one from the Chattahoochee Specialty in January and one from the TCVESSA Specialty in May. We have had two very exciting litters by him and think that he will produce beautifully like his sire, Theo.

Henry is OFA prelim hips Good, OFA Cardiac Normal, OFA Eye Normal, OFA PFK Normal and a PRA DNA Carrier.
This is Pixel! She is by Ch Blackpearl N TDP Star Studded Banner ex Ch Ocoee Go Wild! Just beginning her show career, Pixel has a Specialty Reserve from the 12-15 class, a Specialty BOS in Sweeps and a Specialty Reserve Best in Sweeps, and on May 21st she won her first four point Specialty major from the BBE class at TCVESSA. We just love her she is her mother in black and white!
