Ch. Trailwyn Rhyl Nice Tri
The first Champion of the Dragonpatch was Bessie. This sweet tri-colored girl was the first female Cardigan we owned. Coming from the Trailwyn kennel of New York State. At the tender age of five she won the heart of the judge and made us proud. She went on to produce other Champions who in turn produce Champions of their own. She was our foundation Bitch prior to switching to the New Zealand lines.
Emmie is the first Superstar of the Dragonpatch. A multiple group winning bitch and was definitely a DIVA in every sense. She demanded attention and made more than one judge turn his head and look again. Once she litterly stopped in the ring when no one applauded her during her turn. She only had one litter, but it produced champions as well.
Ch Dragonpatch Warrior Princess
Xena finished her Championship very easily. A tough little girl who lived up to her name. Looking at this photo of her at a ripe old age and still doing the Dragonpatch SIT, you wouldn’t think so. She produced Champions as well and retired from the show ring to live the life we all dream of with her adopted family. Who could resist those sweet eyes anyways?
Ch. Dragonpatch Excalibur
Case was our first Bred By Exhibitor Champion at the Dragonpatch. A handsome boy who loved everyone that would pet him. He was even on TV in Buffalo, NY showing off the famous Dragonpatch Sit. He retired to CT with a loving family that adored him and his gentlemanly ways. He was the only boy to win the heart of the Diva Emmie. Together they produced champions from that one and only litter.
Ch. Dragonpatch Poetry In Motion
Sweet little Ellie a beautiful brindle girl, finished easily when showing. She loved to show and would carry on until her turn at the ring. She only had one litter but certainly carried forth her good qualities. She lived a good life and crossed the Bridge in 2014
Ch. Dragonpatch Black Magic
This beautiful girls name is Samantha. A true lady at all times and very loving and devoted to her owner. Content to watch the world go by and enjoy the simple comforts of life. She produced gorgeous offspring and truly is a Magically girl. Regretfully we lost our sweet Samantha in May of 2014.
Ch. Gwydion of Dragonpatch
Wyn is appropriately named. As most often was the case, he did WIN a lot at the shows. A handsome boy who just never grew up in his heart. Always an imp and never to busy to give you a good licking with his lighting fast tongue. He lived the luxury retired life with his adopted mom Carol and was the apple of her eye.
Gold Level Grand Champion & BISS Dragonpatch Thunder from Down Under ROMb
They just don’t come any nicer than this gorgeous fella. Not only is he a top 10 Cardigan for two years running, he has looks and personality too. Boom Boom is an awesome show dog and has champion offspring to prove it. He is the happiest when he’s with his Momma Kathi of Rocky Ridge.
Ch. Dragonpatch Wish You Had Me

Morgan was the first Cardigan owned and adored by Chris Z. She finished this handsome boy herself and was hooked on showing thereafter. Sold as a pet, but soon realized his show potential. A wonderful boy.
Ch. Dragonpatch Jessa Brielle
The princess of the Dragonpatch, Jessa blossomed into a beautiful woman. At age two, she captured the eye of the judge and finished her championship in grand style. Finishing with a major win over 7 other bitches. Now she can focus on the most important things in her life like playing ball constantly!
Gr. Ch. Dragonpatch Thunderstruck
No doubt one of the next stars for the Dragonpatch. Cracker at the tender age of 13 months took his first Best of Breed with his owner LuAnn Kennedy. Co-owned by Kathi Myers and loved by all that meet him. A Boomer/Jolie son that loves everyone and particularly his Momma. Finished his Grand Championship before 18 months old. Watch for him in the specials ring.
Ch Dragonpatch Toireann Geneth
Tori finished in grand style. Less than six months after giving birth to a huge litter, this sweet girl took to major wins in a row at a large show in Canfield, OH to gain the much deserved title of AKC Champion. Owned by Kathi Myers of Rocky Ridge Cardigans and part of her breeding program to continue on the winning ways of the Dragonpatch. She is the result of Jolie/Dutch breeding and the second Champion from that litter.
Ch Dragonpatch Stonecutter Ale (Schooner)
This boy is nothing but a big bundle of love and fun. Always ready for an adventure as long as it means we get to play. Finishing with three majors in only 12 total shows. He was only completely defeated in two events, otherwise obtaining at a minimum Reserve Winners Dog. Currently residing at the Dragonpatch with his best buddy (much to her dismay) Jessa.
Ch Dragonpatch Illustrious Grand Master (Mason)
You would be hard pressed to find a better looking true Black and White male than our boy Mason. Four majors amounted to the bulk of his winnings to become a champion. Co-owned and adored by his best Momma Holy Huff in New Jersey. Her first show dog has her hook on the sport and we see great things for this handsome lad in the future. The secrets out on this fine boy and you will be seeing him in a specials ring soon.
Ch Dragonpatch Rocky Ridge Party Girl
Co-owned with Kathi Myers, this awesome little girl is distend to carry on the winning ways of the Dragonpatch. Just look at the substance on this girl. The result of Boomer and Tori, both Dragonpatch dogs. This brindle girl “Missy”, is full of life like her famous Papa and ready to set the show ring on fire. OK, now for the cute part, we nicknamed her “Riblet” due to her, well let’s say somewhat portly appearance at her tender age. Meet her once and you will fall in love with her.
CH Dragonpatch KISMET (Kizzie)
Kizzie is as sweet as they come when to its time to play. Her favorite toy is the ball and she rolls it back and forth to you in order get you to play. When it comes to playing with her brothers and sisters she is all business. She isn’t afraid to kick her much larger brothers butt and let them know who’s boss. Kizzie will be carrying on the future of the Dragonpatch as motherhood will be her next challenge. Hope her boyfriend likes a good looking girl with attitude cause that’s what Kizzie is all about!
CH Dragonpatch Land Pirate (Cooper)
Although it took a little longer than expected to finish this handsome boy, it was no fault of his. He achieved his major wins at a very early age. We then turned our focus to his brother and sisters. Poor fella kinda got left out of the picture for a while. But once his coat came back into condition he was winners dog in his last 6 shows in a row to complete his AKC Championship. He is now loved by Mamma Linda and Papa Scott in Oberlin, OH. He has been the chosen one for quite sometime, just waiting on his title before moving into the best home a Cardigan boy could hope for. So now he and his Aunt Jilly will be running the Smith household and having a great time at the Camp in Michigan as well. He is one happy Cooper dog.
CH Dragonpatch Dandizette (Dandie)
Living the good life with the Roth family, Dandie finished her championship with three majors. Her favorite boy Peter, cheered on as she strutted around the show ring. A great little girl with a wonderful personality. Another Champion from the Jolie/Boomer repeat breeding. She will retire from the show ring and hopefully prepare for motherhood sometime in the future.
Here is our Simon grandson. Jagger, Grand Champion Dragonpatch Rolling Stone. Only two and half years old in this photo. Doing extremely well at the Regional Cardigan show in Oberlin, OH. A fun loving happy boy who’s favorite past time is chasing butterflies in the back yard.
CH. Dragonpatch Powers That Be
My little Sparker girl is a treasure. She finished so easily and won big like her famous mother Jolie at the regional specialty. Going BOS over a top ranked Cardigan Bitch. She now lives with our son Seth in Middletown PA and is the office “Director of Moral Support” A job she takes very seriously, well at least with those that bring treats.

Introducing the history making Cardigan at the Dragonpatch. We proudly introduce you to a true star at the Patch. ANGUS, Ch Dragonpatch Back In Black This handsome young man did the impossible. At just 6 months a couple weeks old, he started his career the first week of showing by winning three out of four days for Major wins as Best of Winners. The following week at the Western Reserve Cardigan Specialty and support he won Best of Winners for two more major wins. This gave him five Majors and 18 points. Our little boy became a champion in two weeks. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When a pup leaves the patch as a show potential dog we can only home that the coveted title of AKC Champion will be obtained.

Louis lives in Maryland with this bestest mom Audrey and has made us ever so proud.
