Mary Joan ReplogleInducted into the Hall of Fame in 2002
For contribution to the breed

From the '50s until her recent demise Mary Joan represented the highest ideal that a cocker breeder could attain. In a limited breeding program she managed to make a deep impact on the Black variety particularly. Line bred on the Ch. Elderwood Bangaway dog her Ch. Merryhaven Strutaway is the ancestor to an astounding array of the breed's best Blacks.

Mary Joan mentored a great many fanciers and was never too busy to take the time to guide a novice to the path of his or her own success. Whether it was the art of presentation or a question about breeding "Mrs. Merryhaven” was always ready to help. She felt the cocker fancy should stick together like Velcro and she has earned a place of respect from her peers.
