Cantabria Echo 
of Golden Gait


Riley is the product of a second breeding of Kuka to Deb Owczarzak's *Champ*. Because it worked out so well the first time, we decided to give it one more try. And we are glad that we did.  Deb signed on as co-breeder and Kuka whelped her final litter of two girls and one boy.



As I watched this little boy growing up before me, I thought he looked like a very promising pup.  He was very much a *cocker*, with good bone, short back, big ribs and a nice British *bum*, and above all he had the lovely, loving and sweet temperament that we had seen in every pup from the Champ/Kuka cross. We were able to find a wonderful home for Riley with a couple that had owned and shown Dobermans in the past.  They were looking for a show dog and a pet and Riley seemed like a perfect match for them and they gave our boy a loving home and allowed him to be shown to tap into his potential.  Deb stayed on as co-owner and Riley went out to the shows (mostly specialties and supported entries) to see how he could do.  We are delighted with his happy and successful performance.  He does especially well under breeder judges.
