Notable Ancestors of our Frenchies
One of the most prominent Stud Dogs
of the 90's...
Cox's Goodtime Charlie Brown
Charlie was a beautiful brindle dog, as typey as they come, and with a truly sweet temperament. He finished his championship quickly, then settled down in Jerseyville, Illinois where soon he was receiving female visitors as his fame as a sire spread. Charlie produced puppies who greatly resembled their dad, and as his get increased in numbers, he became a major force in shaping the present "look" of the American Frenchie population. In 1991, in Kenner, LA, Charlie won the FBDCA National Specialty. After this, he was retired from showing except for his appearance at the 1996 National Specialty in Plano, TX, where his many friends and fans greeted his appearance in the Parade of Champions with tumultuous applause.
Sadly, Charlie died on July 12,
1997, at the age of nine. At the time of his death, 83 of his kids get
were finished champions, there are about 100 Ch's off him now. The loss
of this great little dog was a devastating blow to his owners, and also
to the breed. We may find comfort in the fact that he left so many descendants
to remind us of him and to carry on his line.
Ch. Cox's Goodtime Ace In The Hole
By 1990 Ch Cox's Goodtime Ace in the Hole
held the all time record stud dog for the highest number of Champions sired.
He was a very prolific stud dog in his era and the sire to the great Charlie
Brown. Herschel said the Ace and Charlie were the result of twenty years
of breeding French Bulldogs.
This profile stud dog sired offspring
on both American and European shores that established remarkably
strong type. During the early 1900's, prominent kennels included "Gamin"
in the names of the dogs he sired and grandsired which reflected Gamins
highly respected influence in the breed.
Every single one of our dogs go back to the Cox line in some way.... Ch. Cox's Goodtime Charlie Brown and Ch Cox's Goodtime Ace in the Hole. They say if you have the Cox blood in your dogs, you should feel honored and we do! These are NOT our dogs. I have NEVER and will NEVER claim to own a dog or a photo that is not ours. For those wondering these were sent YEARS AGO by a long time frenchie breeder. If you own the rights to them and you want credit by all means just contact me please. I ONLY list these dogs here because I am proud of my dogs lineage, I am simply paying homage to the dogs of the past, that are long deceased, but played a role in creating our dogs :)
Copied this section from my "Frenchie History" page, for some reason it was not listed here, but it's always been on that page so I add this here on: 10/31/2013:
