Mesquite Wine CDX “Mesquite” 1986 – 2002

In the early 1980’s I found my first Springer soul-mate. Her name was Mesquite Wine CDX, CGC. A Liver/White female from a friend. She past away just 2 months after her 16th birthday. She will always be missed. Mesquite did produce a litter years ago that was the start of my hobby kennel. We kept two beautiful puppies from her, Fred and Shayna.

CH Return Friendly Wizard X Mesquite Wine

We went to matches for conformation and later found that Freddy really liked obedience which we were taking at the time. A woman that came there to watch every week fell in love with his sister, Shayna, and wanted her for a pet. They were both altered and Shayna went to that place while I kept Freddy for my son. My son had more time to devote to Fred and put Freddy’s Companion Dog title on him. Then I took him further to Companion Dog Excellent and started training in Utility. He was also a great field dog and would flush, and retrieve fowl game in land and water. Sadly, he passed on at 15 years of age.

  1. We got our precious dog, Chance, from you in 2001 and then moved to Memphis, TN. She was the best dog we could have ever asked for. Sadly, she passed away in March of 2013. I would love to get another from you, but have to get my husband to come around. Our boys, Addison is 21, Gray is 21 and Zane is 18. All three are Penn State students and we now live in central PA. I hope you are doing welk.

  3. Hi Debbie, My family (The Reynolds from Schroon Lake) were blessed to have two dogs from you, Hudson (1998) and River (born Jan of 2003) . I was lucky to have River come live with me in Boston after my college graduation and be by my side through many life events (getting engaged, married and two years ago the birth of my first child). She was my constant shadow and cuddle buddy and quickly became by son best friend, lying on the floor as he learned to crawl, curling up next to him as he played with toys and more recently letting him take her for walks around the yard. Unfortunately this past Sunday we had to say goodbye to River she had been diagnosed with bone cancer this past June, had lost most of her eye sight and had a wound that would not heal. She was the most perfect companion for the last 14 years and we miss her terribly. I just wanted to say thank you for providing my family such a wonderful dog. Sometime in the future we will open our home to another springer, but until then we will continue to share the wonderful memories we have of River’s time with us.
