Let's go back to 1979. A nineteen-year-old girl just got the feeling, that she needed a dog of her own. A pure bred American Cocker Spaniel, just like the one she saw in a colored wrap. Here is the picture.

I was stunned, amazed and at once in love with the breed. What an outline, what character, what type and style, my lifetime love had just arrived!

 

After a few months of searching, I was able to get in touch with a lady, who had some puppies for sale. That lady was Inger Henriksson, from Kalix in the north of Sweden. She had a litter of black puppies, from which I chose, "Woodcraft's Go Ahead" and named her "Ginger".

Parisade Siena - "Ginger's mother

  In a parking lot in Umeå, on a cold winter night in February 1981, she snuggled her nose into my hair, for the very first time, and instantly become the LOVE OF MY LIFE.

 

My "PRIDE AND JOY" 

"Ginger"

 

"Ginger's" first dogshow.

Handler: Ulla Engström, Tidlösa Cockers

Oh, how I missed that little girl! Ginger was the joy of my life. We shared "cheese doodles" on the sofa, "one for her and one for me". Ginger became a great bitch. Giving birth to my 'super male', " SUCH., NUCH., INTUCH., Roadmaster's R.E.O." - " Benke" was her final triumph.

One of only a few dogs, to gain the title "SUCH",witch in these days required a field trial merit here in Sweden.

We did hunt over him, after he received his Field Trial merit. He was very smart, in his way of finding birds. A great Gun Dog and I do miss him a lot.

 

Time slipped away and left me in need of a new foundation bitch for my kennel. After many months of research, I finally found a kennel, where I hoped to obtain this paragon of virtue … a foundation bitch.

 

"DISODIL'S COCKERS" was that kennel. I found, that in the areas of testing and the keeping of accurate records on inherited eye diseases of the American Cocker Spaniel, Disodil's Cockers had an unsurpassed record in Sweden.

 

 

I SALUTE YOU, MAGDALENA.

 

I was amazed to find a person, who was and still is so totally dedicated to improving the health of the American Cocker Spaniel. Magdalena offers a GREAT DATABASE, on the health status of her dogs' eyes. With a record of more than 40 % of her dogs having had their eyes checked, I know, that I can relay on this breeder.

Magdalena you are truly a 'tribute' to our breed.

 

Thank you, for all the help you have given me over the years, and above all, for all the "GREAT" dogs you've allowed to live with me and bless my life.
