My Story

Carol has been showing and breeding Arabian horses since 1979. She is an accomplished National Champion competitor in both Canada and the U.S. in the saddleseat English Pleasure division. Her appreciation of beauty, type, attitude and trainability of the Arabian horse are instrumental to the breeding, overall husbandry and presentation of the American Cocker Spaniel. An exceptionally bred, happy, healthy, well turned out individual is paramount to the current and future success of Pied D’or.

The combination of Gazon/Darkehaven lineage is the foundation for Pied D'or. Carol's beautiful, talented and beloved WILLIE (Champion Gazon n Chitina's Sugar Daddy) was her introduction to the world of owning, breeding and showing this fabulous breed of dog. Willie produced numerous offspring that have gone on to earn both Canadian and American championship titles. LOLA (Champion Gazon n Pied D'or Crazy For You) was just as heavily campaigned in the show ring, earning title after title, and has been a blast to show. The breeding of Willie and Lola produced “Stella” (Pied D’or Sweet City Woman) who filled the ring with attitude and movement and was granted her Canadian Championship as well as her Grand Championship in the U.S. with invitations to the Eukanuba Championship Dog Show.

Pied D’or is home to both Canadian and American Champions. Carol's 2010 breeding and ownership of three out of a litter of six from Winelight Potter x Gazon Pied D’or Crazy For You, has taken her on the campaign trail from Canada to the U.S. Midwest, Arizona, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, South Carolina and Missouri. The show ring success of crowning all three puppies with American Grand Championships has been a breeder’s dream come true. Carol was top breeder in 2011 in the U.S. as well as owning the top producing bitch (Lola) for 2011.

Pied D’or American Cocker Spaniels resides in Scottsdale, Arizona.
