Amber is the lone liver & white girl in our household of English Springer Spaniels. She is a very friendly 19" girl who loves her playmates "Gertie", Ch Bondir's Irrepressible Gertie & "Rosalie", Bondir's Rose de la Kermesse. Amber was whelped December 6, 2000 and is the second Libby daughter to join our crew. We love her attitude and personality. (Back)

handled at these shows by Karen Miller. Amber just needs 1 single point to
complete her AKC championship.

Amber completed her Canadian Championship in 2002 as a 15 month old, completely breeder/owner handled. She obtained her first six points from the puppy classes. She has 4 majors in the U.S. for 14 points, expertly handled by Shannon Scheer CPHA. She is pictured below obtaining her first U.S. major in June of 2003 under judge Howard Falberg.
Amber obtained her PCD (Pre-Companion Dog) title in August of 2003 with her novice handler Stu. We look forward to her entering the Novice ring soon.
We had the opportunity to attend the Eastern Slopes Spaniel Association Hunt tests in August of 2004 & after the tests we were thrilled to be given the opportunity to introduce Amber to birds. She experienced her first bird retrieves & especially loved the opportunity to swim. We hope to be able to pursue this opportunity in the future. (Back)
