After becoming a Champion in 2007 under the Hands of Eileen Hackett, Viva started a very busy Gordon Setter life. In 2008 Viva went to the GSCA National Specialty in Gettysburg Pa. and won #1 Hunting Bitch. Shortly after, was bred to Ch. Firethorn’s Eye-Deal and gave birth to eight puppies. “See Cleo pages web site”. After seven months in the field she was brought back to show at the 2009 GSCA/Eukanuba National Specialty in Long Beach California where she competed against her mother Madison and won number 1 Brood Bitch. In 2009 after more field training she came back to be bred to Barbara Young Tompkinson’s, BIS BISS Am/Can Ch. Cascade’s Sunrunner Here Comes The Son “Skyler” This breeding whelped September 1, 2010 proved to be an outstanding litter of puppies. Seven finished as AKC Champions of which six are Am/Can Champions.
Viva competed in the 2011 GSCA Nationals where she placed second in Hunting Bitch and Brood bitch class and in at the GSCA Greeley Specialty, August 2011 won first in Brood Bitch, Hunting Bitch and Best of Opposite. A repeat breeding produced on December 20th nine boys (0 girls) of which Ch Schofield Here Comes The Ambassador acquired his Am/Can Championship at seven months of age.
On April 15, 2012 Viva qualified with her sixth leg to become a Master Hunter, a second generation Schofield Master Hunter.
I regret to say, thirty-two days after Viva’s Master Hunt Title accomplishment she joined her mommy Madison in heaven. We will miss our Viva, but she left a great legacy from her three litters she produced, litter one, Ch. Take Me To Rio, SH, Cleo, litter two Cory, Jack, Birtie, Fannie and Jewels. Madie and Atticus are with their owners Cindy Mansfield in Michigan and Leslie A. Boyce in So. California. (both Champions) and number three litter Am/Can Ch.

Six littermates are in superb homes living lives of luxury.
