  I am so proud to report that Chase went First Place in the 10 Years & Older Veteran Dogs class at the 2008 ECSCA National.  There were five impressive entries in this class and Chase did Winfree proud in garnering this win.  Mr. James Reynolds was this year's judge and Dyane and I both thank him very much.   This was Chase's last year and what a way to retire!!!!!  Way to go, Chase!!!!!  It's been an honor.  This year's National was held in Lancaster, PA.  


Chase won Third Place in the 7-10 years Veteran Dogs class at the May 2007 ECSCA National in Oconomowoc, WI.  Judge was Ms. Sandra Olsen.

  Meet Chase's Champion daughter "Bridgett" -
Ch. McMurphy Maybe She's Born With It.
Bridgett is out of the 2005 repeat breeding
of Chase and Roxanne (McMurphy's Prize Package).  See #5 below under Litters Sired by Chase.  Bridgett is owned by Joann Pearman of Powhatan, VA.

  "Chase" has been a dream come true.  He is co-owned with Dyane Winn, who also owned Am. Can. Ch. Winfree's Wildfire, CD.  Chase received all his single points from the puppy class.  Then, in his first show in the 12-18 month class, he received a five-point major at the English Cocker Spaniel Club of America Regional Specialty.  Mr. Ed Simpson from England was judging.  What an honor!   



At the next set of shows, Chase received his second major to finish his championship.  The judge was Mrs. Mary Ann Alston, another breeder judge.

Chase won Best of Breed at Hendersonville Kennel Club on February 18, 2000, the day before the ECSCA regional specialty.  What a thrill to come back one year later and take a breed win!
