A/C Gr Ch. Bryden's Walk The Line "Buddy"
At 10 years old Buddy goes out to play one more time in the ring. In three weekends he becomes the Number One Springer Spaniel finishing in grand style with a Group One under Spaniel Specialist Sandra Lex.
Buddy was last Number One Springer in 2014 but has been in the Top Five 6 years in total.
He was never shown more than 6 weekends a year and generally very close to home.
He won 72 Best of Breeds and converted 59 of those into Group placements of which 19 were Group Ones.
He also won the ESSCC Nationals in 2012, was Best Of Opp in 2013 and AOM in 2014. His last National appearance was 2016 were he took Best Veteran in Sweepstakes (not shown in the regular classes).
He has also achieved a US Best In Specialty at the Dallas Fort Worth English Springer Spaniel Association in 2013. These wins are all just icing on the cake for the heart and soul of this dog is magical. He passes on those traits to his children and I hope given the opportunity he will play on for years to come.
Michael - Number One Springer 2018!
Michael played a bit at local shows in 2017 and a couple more Group wins to rank # 5 in the breed before a more committed run in 2018. With a Best In Show, 2 Reserve Best and 32 Group placements including 8 Group wins ranked him # 1 in the breed and # 11 in the Sporting group. Michael also traveled with Ann to compete in Grooming competitions and develop her incredible grooming skills. Now Michael relaxes at home in a very tidy pet trim!
Buddy continues his winning ways in 2016. With only a couple weekends of showing he has risen to the Top Male Springer in Canada. He is American/Canadian Grand Champion & UKC Champion Bryden's Walk The Line. He retired from campaigning at the Caledon shows in December with a Group 2 under Kimberly Meredith Cavanna and qualified for Crufts. He also picked up another Best In Show and a "Best of the Best" when he returned to the UKC venues. We look forward to his offspring following in his footsteps.
