We bought Wizard in 2007 from Lisa Ross (Winfree English Cockers) so Ania could show him in the Juniors ring. What a Juniors Dog he has turned out to be! With his help, Ania finished 2008 as the #1 English Cocker junior in the US, qualified for Westminster and Eukanuba. 2009 was even better and 2010 is looking just as good! In 2009, Ania finished the year ranked #8 overall in the US, # 4 Sporting Junior, and #1 English Cocker junior! She has again qualified for Westminster and Eukanuba.
Wizard turned out to be a pretty good show dog too! Here are some of his accomplishments:
Wizard finished his Canadian Championship on September 28, 2008 at the Mt. Cheam Kennel Club show in Chilliwack, BC winning back-to-back Best of Breed.
Wizard earned his American Championship at the Spartanburg Kennel Club show on July 29, 2007, at only 14 months of age. Judge Gail S. Boyd awarded Wizard WD/BOW for a 3-point major and the title! The show was held at the Carolina First Center in Greenville, SC.
At the 2007 English Cocker Spaniel Club of America National Specialty in Wisconsin in May, Wizard showed like a true champion!!! Under the skilled hands of his breeder, Lisa Ross, Wizard won First Place in Sweepstakes under Judge Karen Roth and First Place in Regular Classes showing to Judge Sandra Olsen. He then moved on to win Reserve Winners Dog. What a HUGE honor for this young dog, as he defeated approximately 105 dogs!!!!!
Wizard's first litter was born on 3-25-09 (bred to "Duckie" Ch. Faerytail's Enchanted Mirror) 3 black & white girls and 1 orange & white boy.
