Wilson's and Spencer's kennel name is Caduceus. Wilson's registered name is Caduceus Castaway Wilson AXP AJP NF CGC. Yes! He is named after Tom Hank's beloved soccer ball in the movie Castaway. And, coincidently, his father's name is CH Sisterwood's Winsome Will, so he really is a Will-son :-) Spencer, who is Janet's handsome and exceptionally well-trained boy, is registered as Caduceus Spencer Batrille CA CD HT GN RAE3 OAP NJP. He is one VERY accomplished Cardigan!

Here are the brothers at their first reunion at the 2006 Cardigan National Specialty in Kentucky. It also coincided with their 3rd birthday and here they are enjoying a special dog-cake Janet brought along for the celebration.
Moving on to my younger boy....Bobby's and Jimmy's kennel name is Fine Creek. Jimmy's registered name is Fine Creek's Sharp Dressed Man AXJ OA NF CGC. I named him based on his B&W tuxedo colors and the Jimmy call name really doesn't play off of it. I've thought of a couple of better registered names since I've gotten to know him better, but the first one will stick. I can say that nothing sets the tone of the day better than when driving to an agility trial, and ZZ Topp's Sharp Dressed Man song comes on the radio. I crank it up and know it will be a good day! Bobby, who belongs to Claire, is registered as Fine Creek's Simple Twist of Fate HT PT. These boys are both high-drive, high-energy guys! Fortunately, they are both well-employed, Bobby pursuing a herding career and Jimmy working toward his MACH agility title.
Jimmy doesn't share ANYTHING! Not with Wilson, not with Bobby, so there are definitely no photos of birthday festivities for him! Just another shot of some good-looking guys....
