April x Hardy Baby Boys






























































BOY PUPPIES BEFORE BEDTIME


These are the April x Hardy baby boys at age six weeks. This picture was taken at night so they are they ready for bed. Usually they are ready for PLAY!

These two look a lot alike and sometimes it is hard to tell them apart. They are about the same size and they also like to hang out together and when they are out of the pen can be found getting into trouble together!

They both have nice silver color, dark pigment, and lovely coat and bone.

Come to think of it Ryan looked more tired in these pictures than the puppies, but I cropped him out at his request!.

The first picture of the single puppy is Green, the second is Blue. In the picture of the two puppies together Green is on the left and Blue is on the right.

The Girls

Think Pink

These are the girls from our litter of April (Ch. Nightwind Foxfair Trillium and Hardy (Am. Can. Ch. Vandaban Wessex, Eng Imp) . The pictures were taken just before they turned 5 weeks old. The two girls in this litter are about as different as could be. We call them Zenny and Rachel for the race mares Zenyatta and Rachel Alexandra. Both of whom may be in a tie for horse of the year. The first time ever that honor may be shared by two fillies.

At any rate, Zenny is larger and darker, has a very sweet dispostion and is laid back. Rachel is smaller, lighter in color and more refined. She WAGs her tail all the time! She is very outgoing and baited for us and posed at age 4 weeks - I think that is a record.

Tomorrow I will put up pictures of the boys. Unlike the girls they are very similar in size and markings. They also like to hang out together, it must be a guy thing!

New Champion - Ch. Foxfair Essex


CH. FOXFAIR ESSEX

Essex finished at the Columbus, Ohio shows with his fourth major at 13 months of age! Where did the time go?


It seems like just yesterday I was taking him to class and he was playing with his toys. (Very disturbing to the obedience dogs - but a good working distraction for them!)



When Jeanne and I took him to the Canadian Nationals this summer he won Best Puppy at their Puppy Match and also won the Canadian Puppy Sweepstakes. Just before that we showed him at the Grand River/Ashtabula weekend and he covered himself with glory by winning WD,BOW, and BOB over specials from the puppy class at 8 months old.


His sire is our Am. Can. Ch. Vandaban Wessex, Eng. Imp. (Hardy), and his dam is Ch. Nightwind Foxfair Trilium, (April). The 3 week old puppies that we have right now are his full siblings.


Of all the impressive things he has done so far, the one that stands out to me is how he showed on Sunday at Grand River in the Non Sporting Group. It had decided to pour down rain and in spite of the rain blowing right into his face - he stood there and showed for Jeanne like a trooper with his ears up the whole time, not at all like the 8 months old puppy that he was then.


While he reminds us of both his dad and his mom in many ways, in his showmanship he is much like his grandfather, Am. Can. Ch. Foxfair Excalibur. The other dog that he reminds us of is Ch. Foxfair Eveready, Evan. He is a direct descendant of our foundation bitch Ch. Vaakers Mary Poppins, the dam of Ch. Foxfair Persuasive Friend and Ch. Foxfair Special Sparkle. Sparky in turn is the sire of the Ch. Foxfair Eveready, Evan, who is the sire of Ch. Foxfair Geronimo Energizer, the sire of Ch. Foxfair Excalibur, sire of Ch. Nightwind Foxfair Trilium, the dam of Ch. Foxfair Essex. Whew! All that to say that Essex is the result of 6 generations of Foxfair breeding - and we think it shows!
