Sweetpea, Still in Bloom
Excerpt from the “Cavalier Chatterbox” December 2010, Norma Inglis writes:
On 25 Nov 2010, Ch Stonecroft SweetPea celebrated her 14th birthday, to the obvious delight of her owner Charlie Stewart-Fippin in Ohio. “Her heart is still good, though her hearing is selective! She does move a bit more slowly these days and her favorite thing is a nap in the sunshine!! She is just the kindest and sweetest girl…I don’t believe I’ve ever seen her grumpy with another creature! SweetPea’s daughter, CH Athercroft Suntimes a Good Girl, just got another heart clearance and she will be 8 years old in February, 2011. CH Athercroft James Blonde is her grandson and was chosen Best Puppy at the ACKCSC National Specialty this year. SweetPea has been a wonderful influence on our Cavaliers. Her sire was CH Ravenrush Gillespie and her dam was Ch Ravenrush Wild Orchid. ”
Happy Birthday SweetPea. Craigowl Prudence of Ravenrush, who herself reached the grand old age of 16, is the great grandmother on both sides of her pedigree. Line breeding and longevity, side by side in this case.
Note from Athercroft: Daisy (GCH Athercroft Love My Jimmy Chews, CGC) is her granddaughter and was chosen Champion Select Bitch at the 2013 and 2014 ACKCSC National Specialties. We agree with Norma. SweetPea has truly been a wonderful influence on our Cavaliers!
