  SuShine Kennels perm. reg’d 

    We have owned dogs all our lives- that is my husband (Blain) and myself (Susan). Some of the breeds I have lived with Pekingese, Cocker Spaniel and together Irish Setter, Puli and then Shelties along with our 3 sons-Chris, Jon and David,  I began showing in 1976 and later breeding Shetland Sheepdogs. In 1981 I registered my kennel name as SuShine and later on had it permanently registered with Canadian Kennel Club after producing 10 Champions. Our home is located in Murray Siding on 2 acres of land just on the outskirts of Truro-the hub of Nova Scotia located in eastern Canada. We have lived here since 1974. I am a Life Member  Canadian Kennel Club since 1981, Cobequid Dog Club  since 1976 and Cavalier King Charles Club of Canada plus 2 other Clubs.

    As our youngest  son moved on in his life I decided I wanted a smaller dog with less energy and upkeep. Having seen a Cavalier many years ago I searched and studied the breed and finally added one to our household in 1997.

    Today there are no Shelties here and at the moment 4 Cavaliers living with us. I have been a breeder for over 40 years and have completed 47 Sheltie Championships and so far 24 Cavalier Championships. I  have taught Obedience classes for many many years and have 20+ Obedience titled dogs. We have  2 Best in Show on Shelties and 1 Best in Specialty Show Sheltie. I would have to say one of the best titles placed on my dogs are 4 ROMCs (Registry of Merit Canada) awarded by the CSSA for having produced a set number of champions. Males must have produced 10 Champions and females 5 champions. Am/Can Ch. Sushines Highlander ROMC  with help from Breeya Barbree-without her this title would be lost; Ch. Laureates Texan At Nationview ROMC (again many thanks to Kim Delaney on this award) and Sushines Zippity Zaina, CD, CGC ROMC. Ch. SuShines Aberdale Tinsel ROMC-owned by Heather Walton also earned her ROMC.

    Now it is the Cavaliers turn and Ch. Quinderias Su Shine Tilly ROM has produced 5 Champions  and Ch Sushines American Cruiser has produced 9 Champions . Another wonder girl Ch. SuShines American Dream ROM has produced 5 champions and 1 more pointed.

    These Cavaliers are very versatile and although I do not push on the titles as much now we do have loads of fun in Obedience, Rally-O, Therapy Dog work, agility, conformation, Free Style Dance, Canine Good Neighbour  and tricks.      

24  Cavalier Champions bred or owned- several also have Group wins too plus 1 HIT and Obedience and Rally titles. Two Cavaliers have placed #4 and #5 top dogs in Canada.
