Keeshond - Ch. Foxfair Excalibur - "Andy"

I promised to do a blog on Andy so people could see a picture and what the sire of their puppies looks like. The first picture was taken when he was two and the next one when he was over three. I also need to get some recent pictures of him.

He has been one of those dogs that comes along very infrequently, most people are lucky if they get one in lifetime. We have been blessed to have him and his father Ch. Foxfair Geronimo Energizer, and his grandfather, Ch. Foxfair Eveready, HOF, ROM, BISS, CDX and his great grandfather Ch. Foxfair Special Sparkle, BISS. They are five generations of Breed winning group placing, and champion siring dogs. From our last litter we kept what we hope may be the sixth generation, Foxfair Edan Of Erin.

Everyone of these dogs has been special to us. Andy is one of those dogs that has done everything we have ever asked of him. He was a wonderful show dog, winning handily in both all breed and specialty competition. He finished his championship by going Best of Winners at the KCA National Specialty, and first Award of Merit. If you went in the group with him chances were more than 80 percent you would get a placement. Then when his first puppies arrived we knew we were onto something wonderful. More often than not he passes on his sound movement, balance, head type and as an extra bonus his easy going and very trainable and loving disposition.

His son, Darby, already has his own ideas of proper Keeshond behavior. He is a very lively little boy, putting us more in mind of his great grandfather Evan than his dad. But then you know what they say, what goes around, comes around!
