Bradley was a combination of two bloodlines I had used in the past with much success. In 2007 I bred to Parker, Ch. Autumnfire Park Avenue owned by Erin and Billie Kerfoot. In 2013 I bred to Derby, Ch. Segre's Brown Derby owned and bred by Donna Larson. Both dogs I had the opportunity to judge and fell in love with these boys and knew I needed a piece to continue in my breeding program. When in 2019 they decided to breed a litter together, I was fortunate enough to be allowed to own Bradley and bring him home to Canada. Covid didn't make it easy and thankfully Erin started his show training until I was able to bring him home. Many thanks to these ladies for their dedication to the breed and allowing me to once again tap into their pedigrees.
Bradley's Show Career
Bradley's show career had to wait for Covid to settle enough for shows to begin again. But what a start he had.
He finished from the classes with a Best In Show under Pat Taylor. During the debut week of shows he amassed 1 Best in Show, 3 Reserve Best In Shows, and 6 Group Firsts. In very limited showing (just 3 more weekends showing) Bradley become the Number 9 Sporting Dog in Canada adding 5 more group wins and another RBIS to his total.
Off to a great start!
2022 brought another successful show season. Starting with 2 Best in Shows exactly a year after his first in 2021.Including 15 group placements in a row amoung Canada's Top Sporting Dogs. He Currently sits in the Top 10 Sporting Dogs once again.
Bradley also had a chance to travel south to work on his American Championship. In just two weekends he garnered 3 Best of Breeds over 4 Specials, 6 Best of Winners, a Best of Opposite win to his litter sister and 13 points. with both majors. of the 15 needed. It is hoped that a scheduled trip will get the final 2 points soon.
