MINKS COCKERS WITH CHARACTER 1976 - 2006

Yes, I am the co-breeder of Oprah Winfrey’s Chocolate Cocker “Soloman”. I was also the breeder of his dam & her parents.
I am no longer showing or breeding American Cocker Spaniels. However, 1-16-12, I have added some web pages with photos & stories of my 30 year adventure in Cockers. Will be adding to them as time allows.  Hope you enjoy seeing them.
