Cake is my long awaited Spryte daughter. She's spunky, sassy, serious, opinionated and a little salty. She is so much fun already and stood out at a very young age with her personality and structure - she was always pulling the 'look at me' card, always catching my eye....and it worked, she convinced me she needed to stay.
Cake has always had a natural retrieve to hand and her first time seeing the pool at 7 months of age she confidently leapt in and fetched the toy right back. By 10 months of age she was flying off the competition dock and naturally tracking and popping for her toy at hitting nice senior distance jumps. She has great work ethic and focus, quickly picking up everything I've thrown her way so far. When she's not working she has the funniest and silliest personality combined with a great off switch. She reminds us SO much of her mother, Spryte, who has been such an asset in our program.
Cupcake is excelling in her rally and agility foundations which are our primary focus. In Rally, she earned her RN with near perfect scores and then quickly earned her RA with near perfect scores, too. By her first birthday, she had achieved her Rally Excellent (RE) title, CGCA, and TKN/TKI titles. We took a break from rally to focus on her Conformation Championship and possibly her grand and then start working towards her RACH over the years to come. In agility, she is proving to be consistent and biddable already. She finds lines easily, is a total team player, and is showing to have nice jumping ability. She made her debut early in 2022 and quickly earned her novice, open, and excellent titles! At her first trial in Masters, she got her first QQ towards her MACH and her second QQ at her next trial. She's got a great blend of handler focus and obstacle focus and loves to please. We plan to do more agility in the years to come!
Cake is my constant shadow and she really only has eyes for me (and a few others she deems worthy enough to be in her circle) -- I adore her as much as she adores me. She loves being with us and just hanging out, but she also enjoys 'doing all the things'. In 2022, we started Scent work and Barn Hunt foundations in addition to her agility, rally, and dock and she took to them quickly. I would say Scent Work is quickly becoming her most favorite thing to do and I'm really enjoying trying a “new to me” sport as I've mostly just done agility/dock for the last 15 years. She is very patient with my learning curve LOL. She's a happy yet serious worker and just a nice dog to have around. She's also discovered lure coursing and took to that immediately. She has been a bit slower to mature physically and mentally, but we are really looking forward to seeing what she can do in the future with her eagerness to do anything I throw her way.
At her first puppy conformation show in IABCA, Cupcake gets a Reserve Best In Show Puppy AND a Reserve Best In Show Bred-By Exhibitor Puppy. At her first AKC show (for fun), only entered one day, she is awarded Reserve Winner Bitch to the Major at 11 months old. When she stepped into the ring Spring 2022 at 18 months, she went WB for a 5 point major win from the Bred-By class, followed by a Reserve to the Major, and finishing up her first official weekend out with a Best Of Opposite/OH Best of Breed win, over Specials, for her second 5 point major win from the Bred By class!! Cake finished her CH in September 2022 with another 4 point major win from the bred by class! I hope to bring her out for her GCH after she has time to mature and do a bunch more performance/agility sports as performance is my primary focus. She currently has one major with her first CH-defeat towards her GCH. I am in no rush to finish her GCH, as it's most important to me that she get to do the sports she loves first and foremost.
Cake is a half sibling to AKC MJR PTD Dream RE MX MXJ OF BCAT DE DMA DSA AS (Hops/Wish), GCHS CH Shine BN RE FDC AX AXJ XF CA BCAT RATN DM DSX AJ CGCA CGCU TKP, *Award of Excellence at the 2021 AKC National Championship, AKC CH Pixel RE DCAT NA NAJ OF SWE SEA (both from Dare/Spryte), Hitman RE AX AXJ NF BCAT CA DS CGCA CGCU (Ryder/Spryte) . Her mother, Spryte has been such an asset to our breeding program with her drive, structure, and temperament and we are so thrilled to have a few Spryte kids to move forward with both in performance, the breed ring, and in our breeding program.
We are looking forward to seeing what this salty little Cupcake accomplishes in the future.
