NORTHGATE takes great pride in introducing our Group
Winning  CHAMPION -


Born February 13, 2006

(Ch. Pawmarc's Northern Lights, OFA, CERF ex Ch. Kehre's Gotta Have Moxie, OFA, CERF)
"Bobby" became a champion so fast that we never had time to update his website with
all of his exciting wins!  He completed his AKC championship at 9 months of age, with
all of his points being earned from the puppy class, all owner handled (except for one
major when we had to stay home waiting for our expected litter of puppies).  Bobby's
extremely brief show career includes:

Winners Dog/Best of Winners at Keystone ESSC Specialty (from the 6-9 puppy class)
Award of Merit over Best in Show Specials (from the 6-9 puppy class)
Best in Sweepstakes under breeder/judge David Swartwood (from the 6-9 puppy class)
We are thrilled to have acquired "Bobby" from Rebecca Gear in Texas.  "Bobby" is an exciting
blend of excellent pedigrees from conscientious breeders from across the country, combining
soundness with brains and beauty.  Below is more information about his prestigious bloodlines.
Bobby's dam (below) -  Ch. Kehre's Gotta Have Moxie, OFA, CERF (Ch. Eldamar's

Specialty Show winner.  In addition to her show wins, she was named as ESSFTA's Runner
Up Brood Bitch for 2004 and ESSFTA's Runner Up Show Bitch in 2002!

Bobby's sire (below) - Ch. Pawmarc's Northern Lights (Ch. Springbrook Tagalong My
Own Magic x Ch. Pawmarc's Neon Highlights, CGC) - is a multiple all-breed Best in Show
winner.  He is shown winning the GCESSA Specialty at only 16 months of age.  He also won 3
Specialty majors and 4 Best in Sweepstakes as a class dog.  Cubby is owned and handled by Pat
Wilaby of Pawmarc ESS on the West Coast.
While waiting for Bobby to mature before beginning his specials career, I played with him
at some UKC shows in 2007.  Wow!  He was undefeated in the Breed, became a multiple
Group winner and won two Reserve Best in Shows along with other Group placements!  
This ranked him as the #2 Springer in the country for 2007!

In July of 2008 we brought him back out at AKC shows where he won two Best of Breeds
and a Sporting Group 2 his first weekend out!

Bobby is now retired and sitting at home enjoying the good life.  He is the sire of multiple
champions - both AKC and UKC, including our Brady who was the #1 Springer in the
country for 2009 (UKC rankings), his sister Bitsy, and our champion siblings - Shamus,
Mindy and Molly!
