MBISS CKCSC Ch. & AKC GCh. Chadwick Scotch On The Rocks At Hudsonview, JW, C-RN – “Scotch”

Scotch at 6 years.

Scotch in May 2016 – 6 years old.

Scotch is my first show dog.   I am fortunate that Anne Eckersley suggested I take him rather than a younger puppy at her house.    Scotch’s sire is AKC Ch. Moonvale Augustinian by Shelyn who at the time was owned by Liz O’Brien (Valentyne) and was ranked #4 Cavalier in the US by AKC.  Hector also won a AOM at Westminster in 2009.  Scotch’s dam is Chadwick Quick As A Wink.

Scotch is intelligent, willing and devoted.  He trained me in so many ways as he ‘got it’ earlier than I did.  We truly figured it out together.

Scotch took some time to mature but we were able to earn his Junior Warrant and I was thrilled.  Our first big win was at an AKC show, The Progressive Dog Show in February 2011 under Charlotte Paterson.   I had no idea what a major was or the significance of going Best of Winners.   I quickly figured it out. He then went BOW or WD in the next 5 shows, easily finishing his Championship.   He was a month shy of his 2nd birthday.



In his third year, Scotch suddenly filled out.  He obtained his CKCSC Championship in a weekend with a Best In Show from Ernie Patterson and a Reserve Best In Show with Erna Britt Nordin.   Carolyn Ackroyd Gibson awarded him Reserve Winners Dog in August 2012 and at the National Kevan Berry gave him an Award of Merit.  A highlight of the year was receiving the People’s Choice Award at the Top 20 Gala.  I also brought him back into the AKC ring to attain his Grand Championship.

On May 12, 2013, he was Erica Venier’s (Orchard Hill) Best in Show.

“Typey, well-broken Blenheim dog of moderate size and pleasing shape. Pretty head with large dark round eyes correctly spaced and placed on the front of his head. Ample cushioning under the eyes; soft, melting expression which was complimented by his happy attitude, allowing him to bring his ears up and make the most of himself. Beautiful balance: going over him one finds a well-laid shoulder and upper arm of a complimentary length creating a well-made front. Well ribbed up, loin short, back solid.  A strong mover with a level top line and correct tail carriage. Not overdone in any way but rather a perfectly moderate, perfectly lovely Cavalier. Winners Dog, Best In Show, Best American Bredin Show, Best Blenheim in Show”    – Erica Venier
