written to The Cocker Spaniel Visitor magazine, owned and published by Bart and
Kay King of Topflite Cockers, for the Visitor's Family Column by Miss Swalwell
in the December 1948 issue says - We have a very interesting letter from Arline
Swalwell, Windridge Kennels, Everett, Washington:
Barbara and I recently
returned from a ten days trip down to California. We couldn't resist taking in
the Sacramento Specialty while we were there so rounded up some Northwest
Cockers of our Windridge Strain (Yes we do consider it a strain), namely Mrs.
Frank Stearn's, Lana's Silver Lass, Mrs. Hazel Stanbury's, Windridge Gold Token,
Bob Meresse's, Novy's Northwest Contribution, Lillian Allspaw's, Windridge
Wallop and our own Windridge Copper Caprice and started on our way October 6th.
We went directly to Sacramento, found an auto court near the show
grounds and spent Saturday bathing and grooming dogs. There was a grand entry of
111 Cockers for Mr. Cornish to judge. We were very happy to capture Reserve
Winners with Silver Lass. Winners going to Mr. Clymo's beautiful red and white
that completed her championship there. Winners dog, ASCOB with Windridge Wallop,
which gives him ten points and Best of Winners with Windridge Copper Caprice,
which completed her Championship. She also went BOS to Roy Cowan's handsome
Black, CH. Myroy Rocket's Triumph, the Best in Show winners. The puppies, Gold
Token and Contribution both won their classes. The quality was excellent thruout
we thought and this was confirmed by Mr. Cornish at the dinner later when he was
most flattering about the quality of the entry as a whole.
Sacramento we went over to Carmel to visit Marion Kingsland, who does such a
grand job of putting on the Del Monte Show. On our way home we stopped at the
Ronald Olsons, Las Trampas, who loaded us down with grapes and walnuts from
their farm. The Jourdains who showed us their new home and kennel, the latter
containing only 12 dogs at present, but all of real quality. We also stopped at
the MacKinnons, Bermar Kennels, which you will agree is a handsome layout.
Although we arrived about feeding time they were most cordial and showed us
everything including that handsome silver male you mentioned in your article. On
the way home we stopped to see the Willetts in Salem, Oregon and spent the night
in that handsome little guest house.
From the Visitor Family
Column in the December 1948 of The Cocker Spaniel Visitor magazine.
recently received a marked catalog of the Honolulu, Hawaii Specialty from Mr.
Akina. Windridge Red Reflection owned by him was Best of Variety there. He
reports that Windridge Blonde Ballad is doing beautifully in quarantine and will
be out on October 30. She is his third Windridge Cocker and he feels she will do
equally as well at the shows as the other two, Reflection and Copper Concerto. I
understand those both have their major shows.
Mrs. Vipond and Mrs. Hayes
from Vancouver, B. C., were visitors here the other day. Mrs. Vipond had with
her her lovely golden female who has just made the same show record as her dam,
Can. Ch. Windridge Blackeyed Susan, both completing their championship in four
straight shows undefeated. Mrs. Hayes was looking for a suitable stud for her
good Stockdale bitch.
We also enjoyed a visit from Dr. Washington and
Mr. McAuley and their wives from Winnipeg, Canada. They spent an afternoon here
at the kennel, went on to Vancouver and drove clear back to Seattle to see the
Tacoma Specialty. They fell for our lovely young female, Windridge Fair
Fredericka. She is one of our last Stormy Weather daughters out of Int. Ch.
Windridge Angela and we feel we must keep her for the bloodlines as well as for
the show career we feel sure is ahead of her.
Windridge Mr. Buff
This handsome heavy coated cream, with enough animation for 3 Cockers...

Best of Winners - Santa Cruz May 4
My Beautiful American and Canadian Ch. Windridge Angela (also a cream Buff)
is bred to Mr. Buff.
Those puppies should be worthy of your consideration.
