Sadie is a real sweetheart. She turns heads with her wonderful colouring and has had a great start to her showing career qualifying for Crufts at her very first show coming 2nd in a super MPB class at Windsor, followed by another 2nd at Paignton and then at just 7 months was awarded top puppy honours at The Cocker Spaniel Ch Show after winning the hotly contested MPB class under breed specialist Jackie Marris-Bray, and with the agreement of co-judge Sandy Platt, Sadie went BPIS. The first black./tan ever to win Best Puppy at The cocker Club show...needless to say we are very proud of her.
Crufts 2007 Sadie, who can sometimes be so keen to strut her stuff that she just can't stand still, behaved and stood beautifully and moved nicely along the green carpet. I was very pleased that judge John Gillespie liked her enough to short list her in the Under Graduate bitch class....Thank you and well done Sadie.
Latest news:Fendrove Joy Rider having already been awarded her stud book number was awarded her first RCC under judge Alexa Brown at Birmingham.
Following maternal duties Sadie went to live with a family who have introduced her to the residents of their local nursing home as well as taking her on regular visits to the local school. My how she laps up all this attention...the perfect retirement for such a special girl. .....and now Betty (Fendrove Gold Digga) has gone to join her.
