Andali ANDI MELOON & CHERYL CONLEY MAASS PAPILLONS & PHALENES
We have shown that with Love, Dedication and Commitment, Phalenes are making a comeback. We also share knowledge and education about the phalene and what makes their ears different. To date we have bred 25 AKC Champions many of which were shown in the Bred By Class. We are dedicated to our breed, not only by doing all DNA Genetic testing for PRA1, NAD, vWD1, Factor VII, we also CHIC# test all of our dogs for eye exams, patella and heart through OFA standards. We serve our PCA club working on the Genetics committee. The Phalene is the foundation breed, being the Continental Toy Spaniel pictured in paint- ings as early as the 14th and 15th Century. We are Preservationist breeders and have strived for continued perfection with each litter. My first Phalene litter was in 2008. In 2009 Janis McLaren co-bred a litter with me and pick of the litter “Ray” went with Janis McLaren to help continue the Phalene gene pool. A year later, Ray came back to me and remains my heart dog and has been instrumental in the Phalene gene pool here in the USA, Canada and in Europe. Currently Ray has sired 11 AKC Champions and two more get are pointed. When they finish Ray will be the first Phalene in Breed History to have a Sire of Distinction. We continue to sup- port Phalene breeders here in North America as well as in Europe, and I am an approved men- tor by PCA for our breed. There are only a handful of Phalene breeders here in the USA and Canada, and it thrills us to see how well we all have done working for the Love of our Breed.
RAY HAS 8 ADDITIONAL EUROPEAN TITLES AS WELL AS A EUROPEAN FCI INTERNATIONAL TITLE. RAY HAS SIRED MULTIPLE CHAMPIONS IN EUROPE AS WELL AND IS THE MOST TITLED PHALENE IN THE USA.
