Here are some recently lost special dogs, along with the current dogs at Ocoee.

We are proud to make note that all of these dogs were breeder/owner handled by Kathy and Melanie to their Championship titles. We do not send our dogs with handlers, we show them ourselves.

Gold Grand Ch.Ocoee DSQD With A Vengeance

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

George's career was 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.

Exclusively breeder owner handled by Melanie, he was a multiple all Best In Show winner and has 42 Specialty Best of Breed wins including both the 2013 and 2016 National Specialties! He holds the record as the all time top Specialty Best of Breed winner in the history of the breed, with 42 wins.

George was 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 2013 National he not only won the Breed but also the Top Twenty competition!

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

He has 25 CH children and earned the honor of ESSFTA Sire of the Year for both 2013 and 2017!

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

Theo was 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 the sire of 10 American Champions and three Canadian Champions.

Theo was OFA hips Excellent, OFA Cardiac Normal and OFA Eye Normal.

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 been very fortunate to be able to line breed to Theo through his sons Benny, Henry and Zac Brown. Theo found his perfect forever home with a wonderful gentleman named Mike Cain. Mike lost Theo in 2022.

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

He was 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 was OFA hips Excellent, OFA elbow normal, OFA Cardiac normal, OFA Eye Normal, OFA PFK Normal and a PRA DNA Carrier. He was so reminiscent of his ancestor, Ch Ocoee Living Proof.

Benny has proven to be a wonderful and consistent sire. He has 26 CH children to date.We were proud to have him recognized as Parent Club Sire of the Year for 2018.

Benny retired and lived in a fantastic private home nearby. We lost him in 2021. Excellent quality frozen semen breedings are available on him.

Jolie was 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 Jolie turned out to be, both as a show dog and a producer.

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 was one of the best bitches we have ever bred and her producing ability proved us correct. She has seven Champion children that have all had outstanding wins in top competition.

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

Ch. Ocoee Go Wild

GRCHS 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,Cardiac Normal, Patella Normal and 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 several Champions. He is now on the east coast with Lisa Knight, Chivalry ESS and is available at stud with her.

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!). We couldn't be more thrilled with her producing ability.

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 easily finished his Grand CH in 2018 and became a Specialty Best of Breed winner.

Russell is OFA hips excellent, elbows normal, cardiac normal, PFK normal, eye normal and PRA DNA normal.

Russell has proven to be an outstanding sire. He has 17 CH children.

Katie is also by CH Ocoee Figure It Out ex Ch Ocoee Vengeance Is Mine. She is from the repeat breeding. Katie waited in the wings while Pixel was shown in the BBE class. Once Pixel was finished Katie hit the ring with a 'vengeance' with Kathy on her lead and finished in a heartbeat with four majors (three of them at Specialties), always Best of Winners and all from the BBE Class. Katie gave us five gorgeous puppies in February 2020, sired by Zac Brown. Katie is OFA hips good, cardiac normal, eye normal, PFK normal and PRA DNA normal.

Ethel gave us a lovely litter in July of 2020 by Henry and then she gave us a very special son via frozen semen sired by her grandfather Benny.
