Meet Cupcake!

Cupcake is a stunning, classically marked female from the last breeding of our co-owned Spryte (AKC CH Harbormist Amaretto Sunrise Crush RN ACT1 BCAT DSA TKP CGCU, AKC GCH MJR PTD)  x Hops (AKC CH Legacy's Sweetwater Blue BN RA PT NA NAJ OF DE DMX DDSE TKI).

Cake is my long awaited "Dream Girl". She's outgoing, spunky, sassy, 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 is very much a 'look at me' type of dog and she definitely made sure she was staying here! 

Cake is loaded with drive -- she has a natural retrieve to hand and her first time seeing the pool at 7 months of age 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. She has incredible 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, dock diving, and agility foundations. 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 will take a break from rally and get her ring ready next Fall to start her Obedience career. In agility, she is proving to be fast and biddable already. She finds lines easily, is a total team player, and is showing to have nice jumping ability. I am really looking forward to her making her debut in the Spring of 2022.

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), she is awarded Reserve Winner Bitch to the Major. I am really looking forward to seeing what she can accomplish in the show ring when she is ready. 

Cupcake is a niece to our GCH CH Wish RN OA OAJ NF DS who received an Award of Merit at the 2017 Border Collie National Specialty at just 11 months of age against 60+ Specials. She is also a niece to our CH Story RN CGC.  She is a half sibling to AKC MJR PTD Dream RE OA OAJ OF BCAT DM DSA AS (Hops/Wish), GCHB CH Shine RM BN BCAT OA OAJ XF RATN DSX and CH Pixel RE BCAT NA NAJ OF SWE SEA (both from Dare/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.
