In the spring of 2006 we arrived in Georgia to pick up our very first Welsh Springer Spaniel from Statesman Welsh Springer Spaniels. We were thrilled to pick up our Lucy and take her back home with us to Cleveland, Ohio. Our Lucy was Special right from the start. She had personality Plus, she was such a happy and silly puppy. Meghen Bassel and Susan Riese encouraged us to show our little girl. We had a blast preparing her for dog shows and showing her ourselves. We needed a bit of expert help and found Professional Handler, Krista Musil. Krista groomed our Lucy up and showed her like the Super Model that she is.
Our Avedonn story began on July 25th 2009. Donna and I chose Avedonn as our kennel name with the birth of Lucy's first litter. We were elated to welcome 6 red & white puppies into our Home. Lucy was a great Momma dog, she loved her pups and took very good care of them. A cutie pie we called Alice from this litter stayed right here with us as her littermates ventured off with their new families to various States.
We were very pleased on May 30th 2011 when our Lucy earned her AKC Championship. She became CH Statesman's Super Model. Donna and I loved Showing Lucy and young Alice too. Alice earned her Championship on October 27th 2012. Alice became our first Avedonn Champion, CH Avedonn's Ruby Slippers.
