Am. Braz. Champion Beaujolais' Minnesota Magic

and his best friend, Flavio Werneck.

Sire: Ch. Silverpine California Dream  Dam: Ch. Beaujolais' Bust My Bustle

Bred by: Mike and Ronnie DeClerk

Owned by: Patty Allen, Sonia Sontiago and Jill DuCharme

Much to the great sadness and disbelief of the entire dog fancy, the highly admired handler Flavio Werneck and his wife Daniella were tragically killed in an automobile accident. Flavio was very well-known in the dog world, and enjoyed great success in the United States, and South America, handling some of the breed's greatest dogs. He was perhaps most admired for his incredible grooming and conditioning of the dogs in his care. He and Daniella are greatly missed.

The most famous dog shown by Flavio was American & Brazilian Champion Minnesota Magic ("Kirby".) Flavio and Kirby enjoyed many, many prestigious wins, (see below) and shared a very special bond. Kirby passed over the rainbow bridge in May, 2002. It is highly likely that Flavio was there to greet him. Kirby was a great dog, and will truly be missed. His legacy lives on in his many wonderful offspring.

Kirby was a two time American Spaniel Club Best of Variety Winner and produced ASC winners as well. Ch. Kenwood's Livin' La Vida Loca, (Ricky) was his Winners Dog and Ch. Coleman's Gentleman Jack (JD) was Best of Variety. Littermate, Ch. Coleman's Rainy Nite in Georgia, was BOS to Best of Breed at the ASC Summer National in 1997. Ch. Sherwood's Wholly Moses acheived an Award of Merit at the young age of 14 months. His co-owner, Sonia Santiago, campaigned him in her homeland Brazil in 1993, where he ended the year as the #1 Dog all breeds in their country.  He had multiple Best in Shows in Brazil, and also obtained his International and World titles while being campaigned by Flavio.  He enjoyed his retirement in Minnesota with Patty Allen.

He made the most of his short life, and approached every day with optimism. He was a Therapy Dog, Canine Ambassador, and sire of Champions. Rider was bred by Carolynn Cobb (Cobb's Cockers) and Lisa Fullington. (Tejas Cockers) He was owned and loved by Linda Wright. (JusWright Cockers)

Ch. Signal's Perfectly Willing, "Willie"


SIRE:  Ch. Pett's Always Perfectly Me
DAM:  Ch. Signal's Tribute To Shalimar

Deceased: 4-15-01
SLT/PRA Clear 1-20-01, permanently clear

Owner: Diane Signorelli, Signal's

Willie died a very unexpected death but as God would have it, I had just bred my first litter in 4 years which produced a georgeous bitch, so his legacy will carry on.

 

Lucy

Lucy was not a showdog, although she did have a nice pedigree linebred on the Artru dogs. She was owned by Linda Wright, (shown here at age 10) and was Linda's first 4H dog. This led to Linda's later participation in conformation showing, and the start of JusWright Cockers. Lucy was a smart, sweet girl who was a wonderful representative of her breed. She is dearly missed.
