PJ, Ch. Mariel's Flying Spirit, RN (Ch. Warwick Larchmonts Bodacious x Ch. Myrddin Scotch Mist). Bred by Marian Mizelle and Helen Jones.
Pj, was named by his breeder Marian in honor of his mother the beautiful red girl Spirit and given his call name to honor the late Pat Jensen who owned his sire Bo. He must have been destined to live here at Solstice since his Flying Spirit name fits right in with the rest of the Cardi gang. Of course around here he is loving referred to as Porky Joe since he loves food!
Pj is co-owned with my good friend Kathy Davis of Dwysan Cardigans, Chattanooga, TN
Pj had a quick flight to his Championship. He was awarded 13 points and 3 majors out of the 6 -9 puppy class and finished up with his final points coming the 1st time in the 9-12 puppy class. He began his show career at 6 months and 2 days old at the Bluebonnet CWC Specialty in conjunction with Reliant Center Dog Shows in Houston, Texas where Breeder Judge Steve Gladstone awarded PJ Winner's Dog and Best Puppy for a 5 point major. After his debut in Houston he went to 3 more show weekends with me where he was awarded an additional 8 points. That included 3 BOB wins (2 of which were majors) and a Best Puppy and Puppy Group 2 all from the 6 - 9 puppy class. His final 2 points were awarded in Tulsa where he was shown by his Co-Owner Kathy Davis of Dwysan where he was WD/BOW/BOS to finish his Championship.
This special puppy has made lots of friends along the way including team Ruya who helped show him while I was showing Henry. A number of Cardigan folks also helped us out including Julie Munn and my kennel partner Harry Griffith.
Kathy and I were very proud of PJ and his performance at the 2008 CWCCA Nationals. PJ was awarded Runner-up Brindle Dog in the Megan competition, 4th place in the 12-15 sweepstakes class and made 3 of 4 cuts in Best of Breed.
PJ is proving to be as handsome inside as he is outside. He is cleared for PRA thru his parents and is OFA Good, Cardiac and CERF clear. He is a DM carrier.
PJ is handsome, social and sound. PJ is available for stud by private treaty. See our puppy page and blog site for future breeding plans.
