Platinum Gch Ch. Dandelion’s Maxwell’s Silver Hammer RN, CGC


Max is our first PWD and our first show dog! We have been truly blessed! He is out of Pouch Cove heritage and was the pick of the litter from Paula Markiewicz. Max is the #2 ranked PWD of all-time in the AKC Grand Champion Point System and is only the second PWD to achieve Platinum Grand Champion. He has achieved Top-Ten status in Breed and All-Breed points in 2013 and 2014(#3 in both for 2014). He is currently ranked #3 in both Breed and All-Breed points in 2015 with limited showing.

Over 2 years of serious campaigning Max has become a Group winning PWD. He has over 50 Group placements, 150 Best of Breeds and has won multiple Supported Entries. During his limited time off he has achieved his Rally Novice title, finishing with a High in Trial and qualified as a Pet Partners Therapy Dog(Complex situations). Physically, Max has classic PWD type with a massive head, prominent stop, powerful shoulders and front end and well developed hind quarters. He loves to show and is tireless in the ring but calm and well-mannered at Bill’s medical practice where he is a patient favorite(patients often schedule their appointments around Max’s show calender!!}. He is a tight black curly measuring 21.5 inches at the withers and weighs 60 lbs.

Tagalongs Stella Maris’ Compass Rose


Stella is our foundation female. She is 3 ½ years old and has been the queen of the house hold since her arrival from her breeder Benita Bottom –Svitchan. She is a medium build black curly with one white sock, a milk chin and Islight white blaze. She is an escape artist and has found her way out of most X-pens and a few crates. She is also an expert counter surfergirl, so don’t leave anything edible with in her reach! Stella started her conformation career at 6 months and finished her championship before she was 18 months old. She finished her Grand Championship before she was 2 and she is currently at the Silver level. She has won multiple Best of Breeds and has been a top 10 Best of Opposite for the past 2 years. In 2014 she won an Award Of Merit at the Portuguese Water Dog Club of America National Specialty as one of the top eight females. She had her first litter of 8 puppies (2 boy and 6 girls) on 10/29/15 and is an excellent mom! Our plans are to start training for water work 2016 and return to conformation ring after the puppies go to their new homes.
