CH Ashcroft Jersey Boy, 'FUDGE' is from the repeat breeding of Ch Wrightwyn's Puttin On The Ritz to BIS/BISS Ch Sangeo FarScape AX, AXJ, NF, CD, RA. Fudge is a DNA 1-2 liver boy with too many nice features to mention! Video of crazy man Fudge Fudge recently (spring 2012) sired his first litter, out of Ch Sandy And Blues SIlvia of Sweden, and has a son who is his spitting image!
CH Ashcroft Do U Believe In Magic - 'MAGIC' is by Ch Boardwalk Ticket To The Moon out of Group Winning Ch Ashcroft Sangeo Sonora. Both parents excel in coat and movement with wonderful true rears. I LOVE this litter, the coats and rears are gorgeous, temperaments wonderful, lovely heads... can't say enough. Friends call Magic a "golden retriever in a Bedlington body" - she has a fantastic temperament. Check out litter brother Timmy, Ch Ashcroft Magic Me At Lamb's End who finished in 2 long weekends! Magic has started her specials career off with a bang, winning BOB 5 out of 7 shows and garnering a Terrier Group IV placement. CHIC#44633 Magic's final litter was born spring 2012. Look for her daughter Hope out in 2013 (and maybe brother O'Toole if we can convince his parents to let him come play - he's a stunning boy).
Ch Lambs End Calientita At Ashcroft - 'CALLIE' - is a DNA 1-1 blue girl out of Codiscountry Who's That Girl by Ch Ashcroft Magic Me At Lamb's End. I am very excited to have this California Girl join the Ashcroft crew. Callie is an old fashioned "type", lower on leg, with more roach, coming down from the Touchwood line in her dam's pedigree. She is so sweet, she plays beautifully with the little babies here. Callie finished her championship in 2010, and we're hoping for her first litter here late in 2012.
Ch Sandy And Blues Silvia Of Sweden - 'VICKY' - is a DNA 1-1 blue girl out of Ashcroft Lucky American Dream and Toolbox The Bachelor. She arrived here from Sweden in early October 2008 and is making herself at home. She brings some new blood here to Ashcroft as her sire goes back to English bloodlines. She's very bright and bold, and will be fun to show. Vicky got off to a flying start and finished her championship easily. Watch for Brandon and Prix from her first litter, the result of a lovely breeding to Am/Sw Ch Isotop's Xceptional Friend.
Ashcroft Talking 'Bout My Girl - 'CHINA' - is a DNA 1-2 sandy girl out of Ch Ashcroft Do U Believe In Magic by Ch Ashcroft Sangeo Santana. My first opportunity to go back to my first litter produced outstanding results. China is pictured here sitting with Ryan Zembruszki at an earthdog event. She has a dense sandy coat and a beautiful long head with superb angulation front and rear. China's first litter is on the ground, bred to Gr Ch Kaylynn's Party Crasher, she produced some lovely pups. Vince, is new CH Ashcroft Wedding SInger (below). Look for sibs Singer and Lacey out in 2012.
Ashcroft Xemplar - "Brandon" is a DNA 1-1 blue male with the sweetest temperament By Ch Isotop's Xceptional Friend out of Ch Sandy And Blues Silvia of Sweden. Co-owned with Karen and Al Miller, I have high hopes he'll be a special dog for them.
Ashcroft Xcellent Surprise - 'Prix' is a blue DNA 1-1 girl with the type of body I love, a long head and a sweet personality. By Ch Isotop's Xceptional Friend out of Ch Sandy And Blues Silvia of Sweden. Prix earned her first points July 2012, her first show, a 3 point major win.
AKC/UKC CH Ashcroft Wedding Crasher, 'Vince' is a sandy DNA 1-1 male by Gr Ch Kaylynn's Party Crasher out of Ashcroft Talking 'Bout My Girl. Vince earned his first points, a 3 point major, at the well attended Philadelphia KC show at 7 months old in November 2011. WD/BOW at the national Specialty earned another 5 points, followed by another major win in June. July saw Vince finish his championship with WD/BOW/BOB/Group IV for a four point major. This is a stunning boy of moderate size, lovely coat, an outstanding temperament and a genetically diverse pedigree. I am so happy with the outcome of this breeding, I returned to his sire with another bitch.
Ashcroft Wedding Singer, 'Singer' is a DNA 1-2 blue and tan male also by Gr Ch Kaylynn's Party Crasher out of Ashcroft Talking 'Bout My Girl has great promise and should be out in late 2012.
Ashcroft Hope For Magic, 'Hope' is a blue DNA 1-1 female by Gr Ch Kaylynn's Party Crasher out of Ch Do U Believe In Magic. Born spring 2012, look for Hope in 2013, right now she holds great promise of maturing like her dam, with dead on movement, but more refined and with an even nicer head.
Watch for these upcoming stars at a show near you!
