English Springer Spaniels
Foxboro came into being in 1983 when I purchased two Golden Retrievers from Kathy Heisler of Thornfield Kennels. Unfortunately, one of those original dogs was dysplasic, so Kathy replaced her with the dog that would grow up to become Ch. Thornfield Chase Manhattan. Chase was an all breed and Specialty Best In Show winner and a member of the GRCA Show Champions Hall of Fame. He opened the door for me and I was off.
I purchased a sister of Chase (the breeding was done four times and produced 17 Champions for Thornfield) who became Ch. Thornfield Step Aside. "Cassie" was the foundation bitch for Foxboro. She was a top producer, with group and Specialty winning children. Cassie was what I consider to be the ideal Golden Retriever in type, temperament and health. She lived to the lovely old age of thirteen and a half. Both Cassie and Chase were Outstanding Producers with the Golden Retriever Club of America.
