In our 42 years in the breed, we have seen many dogs come and go. Here is a look into the history of our kennel.

Promise was Anna’s faithful juniors dog. The team racked up numerous Best Junior Handler awards in both AKC and ASCA. They qualified for and competed at the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club show in New York. Now that Anna has aged out of juniors. We recently have lost Promise August of 2019, She will forever remain in our hearts.

Jack was Anna’s first official juniors dog. He was always filled with exuberant energy, which did not make him the easiest dog to train. Anna worked through the ups and downs and ended up accomplishing much with him. He will always be remembered as her heart dog.

“Todd, Misty, Summer”
National Specialty Winner CH Aristocrat’s Once Ina Blue Moon
Major Pointed Timberwood’s Summer Maple CDX
CH Timberwood’s Summer Mist CD
Todd won three WD and one RWD at the pre-shows of the 1982 ASCA National Specialty. At the national itself, he would go on to win WD, BOW, and BOB. He is one of only two dogs to ever win the national from the classes. Janet Wilcox,of Jareaux Kennels, renowned AKC judge, encouraged the breed to pursue AKC recognition. In front of a group of their peers, she pointed at Todd and claimed that he could easily go to Westminster and take it all.
