Hi Lisa & family -
Just wanted you to know Winnie is doing so very well.  She definitely is Bob's girl, and unless she is on his lap or right next to him, she goes from door to door just waiting for him.  She is very lovable to me also, but Bob's her first choice.
With all the snow, we haven't been able to do much walking.  Am really looking forward to some nice Spring weather to get us outside.
Winnie got groomed about 3 weeks ago -- our groomer, Michelle, fell in love with her.  Knowing Winnie is a little shy, Michelle just kinda took it slow with her, but by the time I went back to pick her up, they were best buddies.  Winnie just seems to have to get to know people in her own time.
I've attached a few pictures.  Some are of Winnie at Christmas and in the snow.  We are having a lot of fun with her.  Bob and I are looking forward to watching the Westminster Dog Show next week.  Will you have any entries?   We always wait anxiously for the English Cockers.  Saw some new puppies on your web site, and, of course, they are all adorable!!

Keep in touch as you have time - we love hearing from you.

Joan, Bob & Winnie

  ChaCha with her new owners, Robert and Joan Frock, and a new name--"Winnie".  She's living happily in Pennsylvania and getting spoiled.









ChaCha is a special girl.  She was from Fame’s first litter sired by Winfree Boxhill Bucaneer, Pete.  ChaCha was sold to Fred and Janet Langley of Janfreds American Cockers.  Fred loved ChaCha to death and carried her everywhere.  I think that’s when ChaCha decided that she didn’t have to be a show dog!

After she was two years old and had her health clearances, Fred decided to breed his first English Cocker litter. He bred ChaCha to BIS Ch. Ashbrook Cruise Control WD.  In her first litter, ChaCha produced Ch. Winfree’s Drummer Boy (born on Christmas Day 2004).  This was the first English Cocker champion bred by Fred.

After that litter was born, I asked Fred to let me lease ChaCha so that I could repeat that litter.  That’s when Ch. Winfree’s Dom Perignon and Winfree’s Exported Champagne were produced.  After that breeding and a bit of time, Fred and Janet decided to give ChaCha back to me.  I was, of course, thrilled to have her back.

We later bred ChaCha to Ch. Winfree’s No Work and All Play.  ChaCha had a large beautiful litter of 7. Unfortunately, we lost 4 of the puppies and almost lost ChaCha to a severe respiratory infection.  The only puppy in that litter to be shown is Winfree’s We Work for This, who is now major pointed.

We are thrilled that Cha Cha is here with us. She’s a wonderful girl and so deserving of having a spot on our website.
