CH. Shadai’s Autumn Rose Gold CGC CD

Ch. Silvercreek Luvemur Mr. Milo CD x Luvemur’s Anything Goes



*Fox River Valley Kennel Club Puppy Match on September 20, 1997.  “Best Puppy in Match” under Judge Jerry Stecker.  Madeline won a silver fox plate and a beautiful pink rosette ribbon.  Owner handled.
*Madeline’s first major was on May 30, 1998 at the Fox River Valley Kennel Club in Woodstock, Illinois; she took Best of Winners under Author/Breeder/Judge David Kline.  Handled by Lynn Meyer exclusively from this time on.
*Madeline is awarded a Terrier Group 4 at the Cudahy Kennel Club show in Racine, Wisconsin on August 8, 1998 under Judge Betty Munden.

*Madeline completes her AKC championship with her second 3-point major under judge John Simm at the Fox Valley Cluster at Manitowoc, Wisconsin on September 13, 1998.

Madeline is the embodiment of good
temperament and
*Unfortunately, after obtaining her OFA and CERF health clearances, Madeline was bred to one of the top ten Border Terriers, but did not conceive; she was found to have pyometra and had to be spayed.  We were devistated to learn we would never have one of her puppies to begin our line, but it was more important to have HER with us.  We moved on to Obedience, where we began with Madeline passing the AKC Good Citizen test (CGC).
*June 1 & 2, 2001 at the Fox River Valley & Skokie Valley KC shows, we qualified both days, earning 2 legs towards our CD; only our 2nd time in the Obedience ring, we scored a 188.5 and garnered 2nd place!
*June 14, 2001 at the Kishwaukee KC show in Belvidere, IL, we earned our 3rd leg and CD title with another respectable score.


After 15-1/2 good years, we had to say a tearful good-bye to our beloved first Border Terrier as we helped her over the Rainbow Bridge in June of 2012.   We look forward to a joyful reunion in that perfect place.
For those dealing with the loss of a beloved pet, I recommend the book, “Will I See Fido in Heaven?” by Mary Buddemeyer-Porter.


CH. Ketka’s Kelsea of Brentwood

Ch. Brindleoak Sir Galahad X Ketka’s Judy In Disguise

Kelsea came to us as an 8-week old puppy from the well-known Border Terrier breeder, Ketka Kennels.  Her sire is a British import, and also sired Multi. BIS. BISS. Ch. Otley’s English Gent (the first and only Border Terrier to place in the Group at Westminster) — but we purchased Kelsea long before her brother became famous.  😉   Kelsea has always been uncommonly cute on top of being a very correct Border Terrier, and we were very proud to use her likeness for our logo photo.
*Kelsea was shown completely owner handled (with some help on grooming).  Her first 3-point major was awarded at the Grand Rapids KC in Kalamazoo, MI by reknown judge, Mrs. Anne Clark on May 27, 2000 (pictured at left)
*Her second 3-point major came on September 3, 2000 at the Livonia KC in Livonia, MI by judge Bertram Tormey, where Kelsea went BOB, including over a special!
*Kelsea was awarded a third 3-point major, and finished her championship, when she went WB/BOW/BOS under judge A.J. Ferruggiaro at the Old Fort Cluster show in Ft. Wayne, Indiana on November 5, 2000
*After obtaining her OFA and CERF clearances, Kelsea has had several litters for us; she is the dam of Can. Ch. Brentwood’s Journey to Trekhond and Brentwood’s Promise Kept CGC (among others).  Kelsea is now spayed and retired, and living the good life as one of our beloved housedogs.  Update: In May of 2014, the difficulties of old age had caught up to Kelsea, and she was put to sleep to spare her any more pain, just 2 months shy of her 15th birthday.  She is greatly missed.
