Zelda's next litter is planned for Spring 2010 & will be out of DC Almaden's River of Shadows

Zelda joined our home from Dawn & Joe Droel of Sovereign Brittanys in Minnesota. I have always loved Zelda's father, Vegas. He is a stunning dog to watch in the show ring. Zelda's mother is a beautiful bitch who has produced nice puppies in her previous litters. I originally considered taking a boy from the litter, but Classy graced us with only 3 puppies, all girls! Everything happens for a reason.Zelda was a fun puppy. Zelda's call name is after the video game The Legend of Zelda. I spent way too many hours of my youth playing Zelda, and thought it was only fitting to name a dog after that. Her AKC name was originally going to be something different, but after Zelda lived with me for a couple months I decided her name needed to somehow relate to her father's AKC name, as she is very much a female version of him. I showed Zelda to all her show points. We picked up both majors from the 6-9 puppy class. Then she went to the Scott Johnson (Covey Find Kennel) and started competing in field trials. I was able to selectivly show Zelda while she competed in the field, and finished her show championship with 4 majors. After I finished her, I turned her over to the expert hands of Jessica Carlson. Jessica picked up several Best of Breeds and a Best In Specialty win on her in 2006, and qualified Zelda for the Eukanuba Tournament of Champions. After a couple weeks off for shows, Zelda went back to Scott for summer camp. Zelda picked up her first Open Gundog win in the fall of 2006, and the remainder of her field points in the spring of 2007 finishing her field championship, and making her a Dual Champion at the young age of 2 1/2. Then Zelda came home in hopes of breeding her. Jessica & I decided to enter her in some shows while I waiting for her to come into season. We were hoping to get some Best of Breeds and qualify her for the 2007 Eukanuba Tournament of Champions. Zelda jumped back in the showring like she never left, and has picked up multiple Group Placements on top of her Best of Breed wins. The highlight the summer of 2007 was her 2nd Best in Specialty win at the California Brittany Club Specialty. Zelda is the first multiple Group Placing Dual Champion Bitch in the history of the breed. Zelda recent broke the Best of Breed record in addition to already holding the group placement record for a Dual Champion Bitch making her the top winning Dual Champion bitch in breed history.

I decided that 2008 was Zelda's year to hit the show ring. I sent her to Phil & Amy Booth of Blue Rose Kennels in Michigan. We retired Zelda in September with her Best In Specialty Win at the Georgia Brittany Club. She retired as the #1 Brittany Bitch in the country, and has now moved to the whelping box to hopefully give me my next generation of winners. I feel that Zelda is truly an amazing bitch, and has so much to offer the breed. I was blessed and honored to have the Droel's send her to me. Zelda makes everything look easy, and has raised the bar for future Copley dogs.
