Who knew this puppy would live up to her name?  An incredible Journey it has been.  At practically her 1st show she was WB for her 1st Specialty 5 pt major in an entry of 80 from the 6-9 month puppy class the day before the ESSFTA National in OH.  She also won the 6-9 Sweepstakes class at the ESSFTA National & the Lake Erie host Specialty.  She came home and won her 1st Puppy Sporting Group and has not slowed down since!  Journey won her 1st Best in Sweepstakes at the Michigan Specialty in Sept 2005 and topped that by going WB/BOW for her second Specialty 5 pt major at the tender age of 12 months.  Showing next at American Spaniel Club, we captured a Sweepstakes win and most memorably the Bred By Class, quite an accomplishment.  She next went on to finish her Championship with her 3rd 5 point Specialty major at the Garden State Specialty over Memorial Day weekend in NJ. 

Shown selectively, Journey has three times made it to the final lineups of dogs at Eastern, the largest specialty in the country and the ESSFTA National.  She came out of retirement in 2011 after 3 litters, and enjoyed a magical & rewarding veteran's career.  She earned numerous Veteran Sweepstakes under respected breeders and spaniel experts all over the Nation, finished her Grand Championship at the largest specialties in the country and also earned BOB at the Garden State specialty where she had finished her championship nearly 7 years earlier.  

I am so thankful for this wonderful girl who is a breeder's dream come true.  She is simply incredible, and loves to travel to show with me.  I have such an amazing time with this girl, I couldn't begin to describe.    Thanks to all appreciated and complimented her type & overall quality.  She is an absolute doll and I couldn't be prouder of her. 

Journey has proven herself an outstanding mother and producer.  Her daughter Promise, Grand Ch. Chivalry's Promise Me Magic (sired by Stanley) finished magically in a handful of shows from the Bred By class with 4 majors.  We are excited about her youngest daughters, Dreamer, Ch. Chivalry's Enchanted Dreams and Taylor, Ch. Springwest Chivalry's Our Song both sired by (Ch. Springwest Silver Wings) who finished their championships in family fashion and are learning the ropes to motherhood.  Her youngest daughter, JJ, Ch. Chivalry's Journey On (sired by Ethan) also finished Breeder/Owner/Handled at specialties and is proving to carry on the Journey of motherhood as well as a promising producer.

What more could I ask for from this special girl.  A magical class career, a magical brood bitch career, a magical veterans career, and a Grand Champion finishing with 5 majors at specialties from the veterans class.  Our Journey is sure to continue...

 

Journey is fast on her way to her Grand Championship from the Veteran Class earning multiple specialty majors just like she did from the classes.  She is pictured winning Best of Breed at the Garden State Specialty from the Veteran class.  Her daughter JJ was Winners Bitch that day as well. 

What a memory! Judge Jack Gohde.

These priceless memories are why we drag her off the couch to do these shows!  Thanks judge Carol Rushing.

 

Journey makes her debut as a Veteran with multiple class wins ESSFTA National week.  Even after not being shown for 3 years she proved to be the old champ she is and hit the end of the lead in true Journey fashion.  Thanks to judge Keke Kahn.
