  My Background

            I have been in cockers since 1995 when  I purchased my first American Cocker Spaniel, a red & white parti girl -Windquest's Wild Irish Rose. Rosie was shown and pointed, but never finished because she really hated leaving Mom.  My first CH was an ASCOB boy from Hap & Bea Jones and a CH Jo-Bea Diamond Trader grandson.  Jake became Int & Am Ch Jo-Beas Jack of Diamonds and I went into the ring for the first time with him. Jake was predominantly shown and finished by Marie & Bryon Santos.  I  put his Int CH on him myself and his first BOV at the prestigious Del Monte Kennel Club Classic of the Pacific in 1997.

            My next show dog was my foundation bitch, a Diamond Trader daughter, Int & Am CH Sherwoods Diamond Serenade 'Sarah.'  With Sarah I went to my first ASC Flushing show in Secaucus, NJ in January 1998 where she won a 6-9  class of 36 bitches, beating the Futurity winner.  Sarah was the only bitch to win an AOM at ASC Nationals in Ontario, CA at the young age of 14 months, putting on a memorable show as she cruised around the ring.  She won BOS in 1999 at Westminster and, even though she only showed eight months out of the year, Sarah ended 1999 as the #2 black cocker bitch in the Nation.

             Sarah's first litter with sire CH Westglens Blak-Gammon 'Webster', produced four champions, two of which are continuing their special careers in 2003.  Her second litter was born on February 8, 2003,  a line breeding with sire CH Cosmics I'm Smashing.  We had six beautiful, healthy black puppies, 1 girl and five boys.  Three have finished their Championships.  The newest litter at Bayserenade Cockers was out of CH Bayserenade StellaByStarlight & CH LaBarons No Spin Zone.  We had three black boys, one of which showed at the Jan 2008 ASC Flushing Show and placed second in his class of ten puppies to the Reserve Winner's Dog.  Chopin was beautifully presented by friend and handler - Stephanie Kaul.  Chopin went on to finish his championship with double specialty majors and First place in his class at the ASC 2008 National in Indianapolis, handled by David Sutliff.  He is now pursuing agility titles with his owner Mary Belanger in New Mexico.

             Stella's second litter produced my first Stella daughters - Melody, Marlee, & Marlo-all finished Champions now. My newest experience was showing from the Bred-By-Exhibitor class my first Stella daughter - Bayserenade's Mozart Melody 'MELODY."  Melody is owned and loved by myself and new friend/co-owner Lynne Hellmer of Long Beach.  Melody won multiple BBE Sporting Group 1sts and Best BBE in Specialty show.  She went on to handler Stephanie McAlister to finish in style with back-to-back four point majors, followed by an impressive First AOM at the ASC National in Pomona, CA in July, 2009.other BBE Sporting Group 1, and a specialty show BBE in Show.

             There are now multiple Sarah grandchildren who have carried on her winning ways, from the United States, to Canada, and recently in Europe and Columbia, South America.  I am thankful for those responsibler owners who have protected and cherished Sarah's legacy. 

             In 2010, Sarah earned the new ASC Legacy Of Merit Award, as well as the HT designation in 2011.  Her two daughters - CH Bayserenade's Swan Song & CH Bayserenade StellaByStarlight both earned ASC Registry Of Merit Awards - both producing more than four Champion progeny each. Stella is now pursuing her training in Therapy.

              I have my MA in English and TESOL Certificate of Advanced Studies from Sacramento State University.  I currently teach College Composition & Critical Thinking at Fullerton College and Mt. San Antonio College. In the summer of 2007, I led a teaching contingent from CalPoly Pomona's EFL Dept to China, where we spent four weeks teaching English. I have two children, my daughter at CSUFullerton and my son who graduated from  UCLA and recently entered the field of Federal Law Enforcement.

            Health is of paramount importance to me and I support the ASC Health Registry, CHIC registry, and research being done by GDC. 

           I have enjoyed the many wonderful people I have met through my membership in ASC and local specialty clubs
