Claramand on fire at Fendrove "Sammy" is now happily retired from the show ring and settled into his family home as a pet.
(Claramand Up Front X Fendrove Im No Angel of Claramand)
Sammy is a wonderful boy with a super nature and a pedigree to match. He is already doing well in the ring with many wins to his credit including many BPD's and we were delighted when he was awarded RBPIS (BOS) at The Cocker Spaniel Club Ch Show under breed specialist Sandy Platt 2nd only to kennel mate Joy Rider - see below - and gained his junior warrant title at 13 months. As he comes out of the puppy classes he has already taken RBIS - BOS - at The Solid Colours Cocker Show and I am really looking forward to campaigning this special dog through 2007.
Sammy's took his turn to 'do his thing' at Crufts 2007 in the Graduate dog class under judge Sally Shields. As always, Sammy stood like a rock, and moved effortlessly around the large ring, really enjoying himself. He is such a pleasure to show. Well, it wasn't just me that he impressed, but the judge liked him too and after pulling him out in the shortlist, he went on to win 1st place. Well done Sammy.
Sammy was awarded his JW title at just over 12 months which gives him his stud book number and automatic qualification for Crufts for life.

After much soul searching I agreed to let my beloved Sam go to love with Jayne and her family where I knew how very much he would be loved and how very well he would be looked after. Sam now goes to the beach every single day and shares a home with his son! Sam is a very special boy and I owed him a very special home and I am so pleased for him that he has a such a wonderful life with such a wonderful family,
