Ch. Ashbrook Copy Cat
(BISS Ch. Sandcastles Skipjack x BISS Ch. Ashbrook Alley Cat)


I really believe that "Tracy" was that once-in-a-lifetime bitch.  She was a beautiful show dog, but more important that that, she was wonderful companion for my five-year-old daughter and me.  Tracy started her show career at the National in Ft. Worth, Texas.  She placed third in the very large 6-9 Months Puppy Bitch class.  She was just a few days over 6 months when she marched into the ring with style.  Two days after flying home from Texas, Tracy received her first points from the 6-9 months puppy class.  Her next outing was at the Moore County Kennel Club show where she was awarded best English Cocker Puppy and First in the Sporting Group under Judge Ann Rogers Clark.  Tracy then proceeded to win Best in Show puppy at the tender age of 6 1/2 months.  In August of 1999, Tracy won the breed at Harrisburg Kennel Club under Breeder-Judge Suzanne Dillon.  She was also pulled in the group.  What an honor for a nine-month old puppy!!  Tracy finished her championship from the 9-12 puppy class in October of 1999.  Breeder-Judge Jesse Pheiffer and Judge Houston Clark awarded Tracy her final points.

We had intended on starting her specials career in Spring 2000, but an appointment to have a chipped tooth fixed ended everything that we had hoped for.  Tracy's life was lost on March 2nd, 2000, after complications from anesthesia.  This has been the hardest loss we have ever had to endure at Winfree.  We truly miss our ray of sunshine!!
