A spur of the moment decision, Georgie is our first Cocker that is not a rescue. She is Braycharm Golden Gem named in memory of our Gem.

Georgiana is named for Georgiana Darcy in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.

After a short and unexpected illness...


Georgie began loosing weight in July. Possible issues were investigated and we looked after her until the end. 15 years and 3 months. She was the Cocker who was with us the longest. Farewell Georgiana Darcy, Braycharm Golden Gem. Now with her brothers and sisters.

Corneal endothelial degeneration and a corneal ulcer...


Georgie had surgery to correct eyelids in both eyes as well as a corneal procedure to help the right eye heal. Georgie's issues included corneal endothelial degeneration, dry eye and a deep corneal ulcer. The surgery went well and she is currently convalescing at home being medicated several times a day. She will be back at the eye clinic on the 25/11 for a followup.

Georgie after surgery

On the 19th of April Georgie had an episode that led to loss of balance, inability to walk and head nodding. By the time we got her to the emergency vet she had recovered 100%. It was wait and see. Some weeks later she started to develop a head tilt. This was accompanied by loss of balance and probably vertigo. Examination indicated a possible ear infection but antibiotics failed to produce a result. Subsequent addition of an anti-inflammatory put her back on track although the head tilt remained.

With no certainty about the underlying cause she was booked in for an MRI at the Small Animal Specialist Hospital in North Ryde. The results of the scan revealed a pressure forming growth in her inner ear. The diagnosis was a cholesteatoma severe in the right ear and apparent in the left. Something of a rarity. The decision was made for surgery which was performed Wednesday 26th of June by Dr. Tristram Bennet . The diagnosis was confirmed. Georgie arrived home on the 28th and seems to be coping well although her hair cut leaves a lot to be desired...

My Brother

Georgiana has a litter mate named Flynn...


In fact Tracking Champion, Tracking and Search Grand Champion Braycharm Flynn McCashin RN. He is on the front cover of the Tasmanian Canine Association's Dec/Jan "Gazette" and is owned by Liz McCashin and, as with Georgie of course, bred by Amanda Bray.

On August 10th, 2016 Flynn became a Grand Champion Tracking and Search Dog, the only Cocker Spaniel in Australia to hold that title.

All credit to Flynn and Liz. Certainly made Georgie smile!

Stung Again

Georgie follows Mia as a partner in crime...


Yesterday the same conditions that Mia experienced had onset on Georgie. Fortunately, with a quick response and medication on hand, we prevented the worst of Mia’s experience.

I spent the day searching for a possible cause but no luck!

New Puppy

5th of July, 2008
Drove down to Sydney on a cold Saturday morning to pick up Georgiana from her breeder…


We headed for the 2 hour trip home only to be sidelined half way by a very hungry and persistent puppy. We had to stop at a butcher's shop to get some fresh meat for her then onwards to home.

On arrival she fit in very well with our other dogs although Ellie was a bit shy at first.
