Here are pictures from our first-ever puppy reunion...
an event we called "Pupapalooza 2003". It was held at an off-leash dog
park near San Luis Obispo, Calfornia, in August of 2003. Talk about a
photo opportunity! Here are some pictures:
This gives you an idea of the overall scene. Cockers everywhere!
It was a warm sunny day... so the dogs mostly stayed in the shade of the trees.
This area of the park is fully fenced, so everyone was free to roam off-leash.
It was a lot like being at a petting zoo.
Everywhere you looked, there were great looking Cockers.
A lot of the action was at the gate, where each new arrival got a big greeting.
This was Jake's arrival... he is the father of all of the chocolate partis we've bred.
A wide variety of Cocker coat colors were represented...
including the unusual blue merle on the right.
Unfortunately, the photo doesn't really show his unusual coloring very well.
Another picture of the blue merle... see the blue tint to the coat?
You can see Schuyler, one of our young guests, was having a great time!
Here are a few of the red & white partis.
Our pup, Joanna, was a huge hit.
She just loves sitting on laps, and there was no shortage of volunteers.
There were a few dogs that I looked at which just made me feel
that we had achieved "Cocker Perfection" with that one.
This is Misty, with her owner, Sylvia Vieira.
If you like partis, you would have loved Pupapalooza.
Black & white, red & white, chocolate & white... we've got 'em!
This is Max... one of Abby's handsome puppies.
One of the funniest moments was when Joanna jumped right in to an ice chest.
She must have been really warm, because as soon as we pulled her out of there
she would jump right back in again!
Riley is going to come to our house next weekend for a good hair cut!
On the left, a blue merle with tan points.
On the right, one of her sons...
The only solid chocolate Cocker we've ever bred.
In spite of all the activity around her,
Joanna finally just pooped out and took a nap.
Morgan did the same thing after a while.
We had a few special guests... not our pups, but special friends nonetheless.
This handsome solid sable boy is Logan, pictured here with his owner, Tina.
They drove for about six hours each way just to be with us!
Another we can't take credit for is
Buffy from Morro Bay, looking good with her red bandana.
Another place you can see pictures of some of the dogs we've bred
is on our page of pictures sent to us by the new owners of our pups.
