Canadian Ch Fairewood Arbutus Tiger CDX (OFA good) has both her Canadian and American CD and Am. CDX, so titled at both ends! Her parents, Friday and Terry, have conformation championships both here and in Canada where she was born. Here Arby is at nine months winning 'Best Puppy in Show' and a Gr. 2 at a large show in Red Deer Alberta on her first weekend out! Thank you to Judge James Reynolds and hander Raymond Yurick! She was bred only once to Orwell (Ch Epoch's Nineteen Eighty-four) and of the ten in the litter, Morgan and Sydney were shown to their championships, while Mickey completed his CDX with owner Carol Klucas. Arby's strength was her calm and sound temperament (except when ground squirrels were detected!) with a can do attitude for scent hurdling, obedience and long treks in the mountains. Her correct front assembly gave rise to effortless movement that could go all day in the field. She is the foundation of all our current dogs and ruled the house for over 14 years.

Am Can Ch Fyrebrick's First Lady (OFA excellent) is an American and Canadian Champion, shown in the US by Peter Atkinson. Morgan finished with three five point and one four point major over two specialty weekends. She typified beauty combined with movement. She was our first home bred show dog and the cornerstone of our breedline having produced two lovely litters and several successful show dogs. She lived to the ripe old age of 13. Morgan was always Cary's dog - I think she just liked men! She earned two legs of her CD with Cary, and was a natural hunter. She's featured on our performance page showing her birding skills. Fireworks on the forth of July meant birds falling out of the sky!
Ch Fyrebrick's Artists Proof (OFA good). If there ever was a 'heart' dog, this was mine. Sydney was everything I ever wanted in a bitch and then some! She literally picked me from the whelping box and had the smarts to be a top obedience dog. She finished her championship with Peter Atkinson, then spent the next several years training in obedience with me or hunting with Cary. Check out the performance page for Sydney doing her thing! She was a natural at human scent work, so much so the instructor wanted to buy her at her first ever trial! My biggest regret is not competing with her due to other time commitments. She also never whelped a litter due to a uterine infection. She passed several years ago at 15 and I still miss her.
