We do not have puppies available at this time!
U-UD CH Czarcrest’s Cure For The Blues UD GO RAE MXP OJP OFP RATM ME EE4 (Curtis) celebrated his 15th birthday on March 21. The celebration started with a trip to McDonald’s for an ice cream cone the day before, which he begrudgingly shared with Stella. On the day of his birthday, with temps in the 70s, we headed to the park for a walk and then in the evening we celebrated with banana-peanut butter pupcakes. A big celebration for a very special boy! Curtis is owned and loved by Carol and Gordon Walker.
In late December 2021, I was honored to receive an AKC "Breeder of the Year" award for the sport of Earthdog. This award is given for not only breeding good looking dogs, but dogs that are able to do the work for which they were created (going to ground). I would like to thank my co-owners for making this possible: (the late) Judy Baird, Susan Chapman and Carol Walker.
