First established in 1986 under the name Ski's Kees
My first Breeding Kees, Dusty Rose, was obtained from Shelly Rooks, Bishar Kennels.
Dusty Rose ~ sired by CH Bishar Different Drummer X Candray Funny Girl.
Funny Girl ~ sired by CH Dalkee's Mighty Samson X CH Candray's Dynamite.
CH Bishar Different Drummer goes back to International-renowned
Flakkee Kennels, Wistonia Kennels
and Duroya Kennels of England
as well as Coventry Kennels (USA)
When looking for a Proven Top Quality Producing male for Dusty
I went to Aurora Kennels (USA).
Dusty Rose was bred to CH Aurora's Cubby McCloud, ROM who produced
Ski's Kees Cup of Fluff. Cubby was sired byAM/CH Dalkees Mighty Samson, ROMX
Still striving to improve my lines I bred Cup of Fluff to AM/CH Yan-Kee Neiman Marcus.
& produced AM/CH Ski's Kees Park Avenue and AM/CH Ski's Kees Ivan the Terrible
I liked what he produced and realized the value of this fine stud. In studying pedigrees I found that most of the winning dogs today go back to this exceptional male.
Many thanks to Holly Colcord Yan-Kee Kennels.
Cup-of-Fluff was one of the last to bred to this exceptional example of a Keeshond
These National Specialty Winning and Non-Sporting Group placing dogs are
the Foundation behind Dogwood Keeshonden Kennels.
Brenda McElhaney, Aurora Kennels has been a mentor and friend, she introduced me to Jan Wannamaker, Candray Kennels.
I acquired CH Aurora's Continental Cowboy, Carlita, and Fable from Aurora Kennels
and CH Candray Comet from Jan Wannamaker
I reorganized in 1998 under the name Dogwood Keeshonden
breeding Carlita, Fable, and Comet to my stock to produce what has now become
