Bred by Carol Edwards
Simba is our special Black and Tan boy who loves to play
Frisbee. His first show was the 2005 Canadian National
Specialty in Edmonton, Alberta where he placed second in
his class. The next day at the Midwest Cocker Specialty he
was Reserve Winners Male from the 6-9 month puppy class.
Simba finished easily in very limited showing and is now
training for flyball and agility.
Simba was CERF clear June 2007 and will have OFA and
Thyroid testing done this fall. We look forward to
competing in agility and flyball in 2008 and beyond.
Some adorable Simba puppy photos!

Am. Ch. Brookwood Rae’s Creek X Can. Ch. Greyhaven’s What
Bred by Dieter E. Herz, Reta Herz and Carol G. Edwards
from Reta and Dieter’s house to our house at the age of 8
weeks. She finished her Can. Championship owner handled in
very limited showing with Group placements. After two
litters of puppies and a bout with mammary cancer Crystal
attended her first Agility Trials in October 2004 at the
age of 8 years and earned her VADC (Veteran Agility Dog of
Canada) title that first weekend.
At 9 years of age she participated in her 1st CKC Agility
Trials where she earned her AGN title in her first 3
trials. A few months later the selected classes were
offered and since then she has moved through the classes
earning the AGNS, AGNJS, AGIS, AGIJS, and has her first
two Excellent A Selected legs. At 11 years young she is
not too fast but she is usually very accurate.
Buffy's Golden Treasure C.D.
was purchased in the spring of 1982. Being our first
American Cocker Spaniel she was our introduction to this
wonderful breed. The Dog Show world opened up to us after
taking obedience classes with this little buff girl and
being convinced by our instructor that we should compete
in the local CKC Dog Obedience Trials. Lindsay attained
her (CD) Companion Dog title and the rest, as they say, is
She shared her life with us for 12 years and we learned
many things from her. After a trip to the veterinary
clinic with a puppy with a fish hook stuck in her lip we
learned to “keep the tackle box closed”!
She was our introduction to the world of breeding and
whelping puppies and produced my second obedience dog
Lindsay’s Chi-Chi Delight C.D.
September 30, 1984 – October 23, 1996
Chi-Chi was the first puppy from Lindsay’s first litter
sired by Timothy’s Oktoberfest.
Chi-Chi was the puppy that was destined not to leave us.
Although she was for sale, when people came to look at the
litter she would go and hide from the strangers. Not
typically a shy puppy – she seemed to sense that if she
acted this way – she would get to stay and right she was!
She was a wonderful companion and a very high scoring
obedience dog. Many judges commented on her eagerness to
please when they saw her in the ring with me.
Chi-Chi was very aptly named as she truly was a Delight!

Bred by the late Annelie Nussbaumer (Gabrielson)
I first met Annelie at a Vernon dog show where she had a
rambunctious black male puppy on the end of her lead.
While awaiting their turn in the ring, the puppy bounced
around and rolled in the green grass at her feet. When
her number was called she quickly combed the loose grass
out of his coat and proceeded into the conformation
ring. That image is forever etched in my mind and while
I watched that puppy continue to have fun in the ring
and win his class I decided this was someone I wanted to
buy a puppy from. I watched her leave the ring, not
wanting to interfere, as she was talking to someone
else, but wanting desperately to meet her. When she was
about 100 yards away I got up enough nerve to pursue her
and introduce myself. She gave me her business card and
told me to give her a call when I was ready.
The following spring I was looking for that new male
show puppy so I wrote to Annelie and asked to be put on
her waiting list. To my surprise, the phone rang only
about a week later and she said she had a puppy for me
if I was interested. It was a bit sooner than I had
planned but I was interested. It was on this occasion in
July 1988 that I met Julia Philp of Kiwi Cockers at the
Kelowna airport. Julia had bought a little sable female
from Annelie and Jasper was along for the ride!
From the moment we opened the crate and he marched right
out (into thin air if we hadn’t caught him) he possessed
a presence that carried him through his entire life!
This dog would try anything you asked and do pretty darn
well at it too as is indicated by his many titles in
several different disciplines. Jasper also did some
Agility and Tracking (although we never competed in
those sports) and he was an avid swimmer.
He was so famous that for 2 years after he passed away
when we did public events people I didn’t even think I
knew asked about Jasper by name. He was the best
ambassador for the breed that we have owned and until
quite recently was the most titled dog we had owned.
We lost Jasper just before his 10th birthday to liver
disease but he was “MY HEART DOG” and he is still missed
