  1. Actually, the Irish Water Spaniel that went Reserve Best in Show was GCH. Whistle Stop's the Wind on Fire "Claire" who is yet another sister from the same amazing litter. She has been in living Sweden for the past two years. Claire is owned and was shown by Greg Siner. Riley was actually shown in NJ where she won the Sporting Group on Sunday. As you can imagine, I am a very proud co-breeder of these wonderful girls. I am anxiously waiting for confirmation of puppies out my girl from the litter Annah GCH. Whistlestop's Fire & Ice who was breed last Friday. Stacy Duncan
