We are so proud of Teddy and all of his accomplishments in the ring. As a youngster, Teddy finished his American Championship by going Winners Dog at the 2017 Eastern English Springer Spaniel Club. In the summer of 2018, he very quickly finished his Canadian Championship. With very limited showing in both 2019 and 2020, Teddy was awarded 2019 Show Dog of the Year and 2020 Show Springer of the Year by the Parent Club. He finished 2021 as the # 1 Springer all systems, #3 Sporting and #6 dog in the country among all breeds. Teddy is the epitome of a true show dog, elegant, with true grace and a heart so dedicated to giving Howard his best every time they enter the ring. All these qualities are important in any show dog, but Teddy’s temperament is what really makes him shine. While incredibly loyal to his people and eager to please us, Teddy loves to greet any children in his path and thoroughly enjoys ending a show day with a golf cart ride and giant stuffie to defluff.
We are humbled not only by the recognition he has received by so many judges, but also to our fellow breeders who have recognized Teddy’s physical qualities and temperament and have chosen to include him in their breeding programs.

From the first time Avery stepped in the ring, she has been a breeder's dream come true. She finished with three 5-point specialty majors, including Best of Winners and Best Bred-By at the 2019 National. We were thrilled when she earned the 2020 ESSFTA Runner-Up Show Bitch of the Year as a young special. As dog shows returned in 2021, we kicked into high gear and were pleased to see the number of judges giving her the nod. Avery won multiple Breeds and Opposites at large specialties including Chattahoochee, Keystone, Puget Sounds, and Willamette. She ended the year winning the 2020 People's Choice award at the Top 20, Best Opposite at the National, and ultimately the 2021 ESSFTA Show Bitch of the Year.
My thanks to Laurie Green for sharing the 17-year-old semen of Ch. Lordillea Stonihill Foto-Op. As always, I am glad I have my two partners, Susie Shore and Dana Lodge, along for the ride.
And yes, I'm STILL SMITTEN WITH MY BROWNIE.

You dream about a dog that has a long list of achievements – Winners Dog at the National Specialty finishing with all Specialty majors, multiple Best in Shows, multiple Specialty winning, A Top 10 Sporting Dog, 2020 Runner Up Show Sire, 2021 Runner Up Show Dog and twice Best of Breed at the Westminster Kennel Club.

GCHS Woburn’s Pandemonium’s ongoing journey began on June 16, 2019 as part of an exceptional litter. Elizabeth was born a little princess that turned into a Queen. She took charge of the whelping box and, not surprisingly, that assertiveness quickly transitioned into the show ring. Elizabeth made a dramatic debut in conformation in the 4-6 month class when she captured Best in Show. She quickly completed her POA. At just 7 months old Elizabeth’s first win was at Chatahoochee 2020 with a 5 point major. As with many aspects of society, the dog show world was a casualty of the pandemic, temporarily interrupting her showing. When she returned to the ring Elizabeth quickly continued her winning ways while being awarded another major and BOS at the 2021 Susquehanna Valley speciality. She finished her championship at New England Sporting Group Association winning WB/BOW supported by EESSC. The second supported show of NESGA, resulted in a Best of Breed. Elizabeth also gained her Sr. BISSweeps at Eastern in 2021. To this day, she continues to be a major force in the ring including group placements.
As her breeder I couldn’t ask for more from Elizabeth when she claimed her mom Jennifer Nagus-Kerwin as her own! They have worked together as a team totally in tune with each other. Elizabeth is a clown - lovable, smart, beautiful and and truly ring royalty!

Timmy is outstanding in every way and epitomizes the breed standard. We love his dark eyes, head and his gorgeous front assembly. He has a very nice shoulder layback with a smooth transition of his neck into shoulder all the way through to his tailset. He has a wonderful temperament and show attitude and passes this to all his get. He has not met a dog or person he didn’t like and loves to show even now as a veteran giving it his all every time. In his career Timmy won 55 BIS and 226 Group 1st.
Timmy was Show Sire of the Year in both 2019 and 2021. He has consistently produced top show dogs. He has sired 28 Champions including Cerise Bonanza the number 1 ESS 2020-2021 and Cerise Prodigal Son who was Winners Dog at the 2021 Eastern Specialty and finished his Championship by going Best of Winners at the 2021 ESSFTA National Specialty.

Libby was the consummate show dog, garnering a Best in Specialty, two ESSFTA Top Twenty invites, and winning PSESSA Show Dog of the Year twice with limited showing. She stepped into the whelping box with that same quintessential attitude. Dam of 7 Champions and 2 Grand Champions. Libby kids have more than followed in her footsteps, a 5 time Best in Show winner, with 4 Reserve Bests in Show and 13 Best in Specialty wins, a multiple group placing daughter, and a Canadian National Specialty winner. Libby’s children aren’t just exceling in conformation, they are sweeping the obedience ring. She is also the proud producer of the 2021 Rally and Utility Springer of the year, in addition to other successful obedience titled offspring.
