We've had many fine dogs over the years, and some with more wins, but the following are the ones that either lived with us, or dogs that we co-owned and showed (were like family), or play a continuing role in our current pedigrees.  We've loved them all and remember, to this day, all the little things that made them so special.  It's been such a wonderful journey, and one after almost 40 years that we hate to give up.  One day reality will set in, and we will have to stop, but for the time being, enjoy our "journey" and some of the dogs that have been so much a part of it. 

Bo-Cham's Whisper of Tramore "Sunny"

August 18, 1972 - April 1985

Our foundation bitch, Sunny, was a linebred Ch. Shannon's Erin granddaughter.  We were novice, very intense, and she really didn't like the show ring.  She had a few points, but when bred twice, produced all the dogs that we have today.  Flannery and Couldn't Resist are in all of my pedigrees.  When bred her first time, I took the advice of all the books, and linebred her to a  double Ch. Shannon's Erin grandson.  That litter and Flannery probably had more "Erin in them" then any other dogs in the country at that time.  Sunny had a certain spirit which carries on today.

Flannery was my heart and soul.  She was my beginning in the dog show world, and we loved her head, body, and winning ways.  She won "in spite of me" a very novice handler.  She had many nice wins, but the most special was at our huge 1976 shows here in Colorado, our Bi-Centenial.  She was the only bitch to win points twice at these shows.  She beat 50 bitches, one day for only a 4 point major!  She produced 7 champions, but because one was not a "Champion of Record", because of paper work, she did not receive her ROM.  I've had many wonderful dogs that I loved dearly afterwards, but nothing compared to Flannery in my heart.

Ch. Tramore Couldn't Resist "Chastity"

February 27, 1977 - May 1990

Chastity was from a litter of 2 and continued Tramore's winning ways.  She along, with Flannery, are in all of our dog's pedigrees.  When bred to Ch. Tramore High County, she produced are our very showy, and at that time very winning bitch, Ch. Tramore Kiandra.

Pebbles was one of 4 champions in that lovely litter by Ch. Shawnee Pipedream O'Charlton.  She lived with Don Neely but spent much of her time with us.  She and her Dam, Flannery could have been bred to any male and would have "produced".  They consistentaly produced fine dogs with bone, body, beautiful heads, and wonderful movement.  Pebbles has her ROM with 11 champion offspring

Ch. Tramore Hurrah "Marge"

April 11, 1982 - December 1995

Marge was from a misbred litter that happened when with a Handler.  Fortunately, it was an Irish Setter who sired the litter, and a fine dog at that.  It proved very good for us since she turned into a lovely dog with outstanding movement, and when bred to Ch. Meadowlark's Vindicator produced 5 champions. The litter she was out of also produced 4 champions, so we had to thank "that Handler".   We called Marge, "Marge The Barge" because she had such good rib spring and body.   As an aside, we also developed a life long friendship with Gabriela Garcia GTZ, Allegiance Kennels,  in Mexico who owned Piper at that time. Most of her dogs also decend from this "misbred" combination.    It's wonderful the  way "these dogs" sometimes bring us together.

Kiandra, she was supposed to be Mt. Forest M&M.  Why you ask?  Helen & Jerry Vance had Couldn't Resist at the time and bred her to my Ch. Tramore High Country.  I took the sister, who had a long neck, and Jerry took the only other sister with the short neck.  After 5 months we decided to "switch" bitches.  The rest is history.  Emmy was "my type" and her neck was long enough!  She became my most winning dog, when bitches really didn't beat the males all that often.  If she did get out of the Breed, she either went on to Group I or Group II's.  She was firery, sound and so very balanced.  I bred her 3 times, and she did get her ROM, although I don't think most of get kids were as good as she.  One judge said, had she been out with a Handler, she probably would have been a Best In Show bitch.  God love you Em....we had so much fun.

February 10, 1984 - July 1995

Conner was from a litter of 5 sired by Ch. Meadowlark's Vindicator.  Since I don't keep too many males, he went to Elyse Hansberry on a co-ownership, who did so many wonderful things with him.  He became not only a Champion, but had Obedience Titles, and eventually became a Therapy dog.  I showed him in the Breed and he had a wonderful record.....going on to many Best of Breed and Group wins.  He was a dear dog and was one champion short of getting his ROM.  Such a shame we don't have his semen stored today.  He offered the Breed a lot.  He was one of those "special" ones.

Ryan was from a litter of 3 champions sired by Ch. Meadowlark's Equalizer, who was a full brother to Vindicator,  had a beautiful head and lovely dark coat.  There were so many other nice dogs in this litter, but for one reason or another, they did not finish.  Ryan was a sweet dog, with many memorable wins, and was the only male that lived and died with us.  He produced  very well and had 11 champions in his first 4 litters.  We loved him, and had he been "Specialed" professionally probably would have gone on to be a top dog.  George and Mary Ann Alson loved him.   We have one Frozen Semen breeding available from him, and we may use it shortly.  He died on 9/11 and it was probably one of the saddest days of my life.
