Anne Eckersley bred her bitch, AKC Ch. Chadwick Winter Solstice to AKC GCh. Cottfordcourt By Dawns Early Light owned by the Millers and Crawfords.  There were two males and two females in the litter.  Anne kept a female and I took a male.   Juneau is the first puppy that John and I have raised together and we’ve had lots of fun with him.  He is a smart and athletic dog that is taking very quickly to training to be a show dog.

I showed him a bit as a puppy in CKCSC shows but he was skinny and with his lack of coat he resembled a baby seal.  I gave him some time off from showing and didn’t bring him out until the York show in November 2013.  He made the cut in the challenge on the final day.  We brought him to the first show CKCSC show of 2014 and he earned his first major points going Reserve Winners Dog under Mary Forrester (Salibre-UK.)  In addition to Reserve Winners Dog on Sunday, Juneau was also Best Tri Color in Show under Kirstie McMurray (Merryoth) and was given an Award of Merit under Barb Hill (Felicty,-US).

Juneau finished his AKC Championship in September 2014.  He finished CKCSC Championship in March 2015 under David Moger (Gayhalo), who commented  “Excellent little dog. Correct size and shape with good front angulation and neck. Good in the rear too with correct croup and tailset and nice turn of stifle. He moved with grace and confidence. Very attractive head with good ear set and nice expression. I was pleased to award him Reserve Winners Dog, Best Tricolor Dog.”

The following day Juneau was Reserve Best in Show and Best of Opposite under  Charley Fippin (Athercroft)
