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 is a lot of fun -- 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 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, 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 when she's older and finishes her CH in the breed ring. 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! She's very handler focused and loves to please. We plan to do more agility this Fall 2022.
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. 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.
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!! We hope to finish Cake in the future when she has a bit more time to mature.
Cake is a half sibling to AKC MJR PTD Dream RE AX OAJ OF BCAT DM 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 NA NAJ NF BCAT DS CGCA CGCU, and Caliente BCAT DM DSA (both from 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.
