Calypso's Don't Make Me Beg (Portia)

PRA Normal/Clear ~ FN Normal/Clear ~  CERF Clear ~ Whelped 06/07/06

Portia, a black English Cocker Spaniel

(Ch Daisymead's Powerplay x Am/Can/UKC Ch Calypso Audacity Strikes CD Am/Can RN WD)

Portia is now retired and lives with David and Jenny Phipps in Benton City, Washington. Thanks, Dave and Jenny, for loving Portia so much and for giving her such a wonderful home.

Portia is a fun combination of her dam, Sophie, and her grand-dam, Mandy. She loves to play and is usually carrying a toy around in her mouth, but she also loves to snuggle. She has an enthusiastic personality and she loves to learn. Her name comes from one of the main characters in Shakespeare's The Merchant Of Venice. If you have ever read or watched this play, you know that Shakespeare's Portia is very intelligent with a mind of her own. Our Portia has a similar personality! Portia is shown below at six months of age winning second in her 6-9 mth sweeps class at ASC. This was her very first time in the show ring!
