Fergie, MBIS BISS GCHG CROSSROAD JOCKEYHILL BIG GIRLS DON’T CRY is from my fairly tale litter. She was Happy. From birth, she was my pick and I saw then what she could become. She is out of my first litter of Titus x Blizzard. Both sire and dam were ESSFTA Show Dog and Show Bitch of the year. Hard act to follow.
Fergie had a great show career. She finished by going BOS at the San Antonio Specialty. Since she was not ready to be specialed, we bred her to Conrad ( GCH CROSSROAD JOCKEYHILL LAST CALL). There was an outstanding young boy, who has matured into a special dog, Jackson, CH CROSSROAD JOCKEYHILL MAN IN THE MIRROR.
I put her Grand championship on her and then gave her back to her co-owner Jody Garcini to special. She was BOS at WKC in 2018 under breeder judge Steve Dainard. She won Sporting Gp One along with her son Jackson at the prestigious Breeders Showcase at Santa Barbara KC. She won two Best In Shows and was the first bitch I bred to do so. She won BISS at the San Antonio Specialty under breeder judge Judy Manley. She finished her year as ESSFTA Show Bitch of 2018.
Fergie is now retired till she becomes a Veteran. In the meantime she will be bred at her next season.
Throughout her life, Fergie’s tail has continually wagged. It still hasn’t stopped yet.

Benny finished his title breeder/owner/handled with three specialty majors and several Best in Sweepstakes wins. Never shown as a special and not promoted, nonetheless savvy breeders took note of this dog and though he was used lightly his producing ability proved to be outstanding. He currently has twenty two Champion offspring including several Grand Champions and many that finished with multiple Specialty majors.
Benny is OFA hips excellent, elbows normal, eyes normal, cardiac normal, PFK normal and PRA DNA Carrier. (OFA CHIC #122376). He is from a pedigree very strong in health and he has continued that tradition by producing very strongly in kind.
Now ‘living the dream’ in a retirement home, Benny spends his days babysitting the two young grandchildren in his new family. He fits the mold of a great sire, as he has all the requirements-beauty, brains, health and an outstanding temperament. We are very proud of our Benji dog!

It is so fitting for Mattie to be ESSFTA's Show Dam of the Year. Since she was a puppy herself she adopted every litter in our home. Playing, nurturing and care taking for any puppy, field or show. She was born to be a mother!
She has passed her beautiful physical attributes on to her pups, with 7 Champions (6 CH, 2 GCH in 2018 and 1 CH in 2017) from two litters. But most importantly she has passed on her sweet disposition and loving nature. We are so proud of our wonderful Mattie!
Thank you sires; GCHP CH Foxboro Cristolino and CH Tropical Tuscan Sun of Braveheart CD BN RE AX AXJ CAA CGC TKI RATI
All Mattie's get were breeder, owner, handled to their Championships and Grand Championships by April Leonetti and Tony Vasquez with assists from Rita Vasquez, and moral support from Mike Leonetti.
We are honored by this accomplishment and thank the breeders and pedigrees behind us for making this possible.

Will's Runner up Sire of the Year award came as a surprise to us. Thank you to his breeders and co-owners for allowing this special dog to be mine and to the breeders who have sent their beautiful girls to be bred to him. This award would not be possible without all of you. Will has taken me on a ride of a lifetime and one I will truly never forget. Watching his kids, grandkids and now great grandkids grow has been a huge part of this journey and I’ve been so proud to be a part of it.
I hope to have many more years with my sweet, silly, couch pet.

He is the sire of multiple Specialty Best in Sweepstakes and multiple Specialty major winners, several Grand Champions and two bitches that finished in the Top 10 bitches for 2018.
