Aiden is a first rate showman. He absolutely loves it. Aiden is at his happiest when he is strutting around a big ring showing off to lots of admiring onlookers'. He was our only representative at Crufts this year (2009) and did us proud being Highly Commended in his class.
Judges critique from The Solid Cocker Spaniel Club’s Ch Show 31/10/2009
Open 1st Claramand Rough Diamond , for me looked as though he could do the job he was designed for, quality, elegance & strength combined, liked his overall body proportions, ratio of length to height, length of leg, nothing exaggerated , athletic, strong appearance, lovely biddable, gentle but alert expression, clean, balanced head, clean line of neck into firm topline good length of blade & upper arm , balanced quarters, good length, depth & enough spring of rib, strong loin, moved true, impressive reach & drive in profile. *Somewhat unsettled on the move in the challenge, otherwise very much in contention for top honours.

* Aiden was handled by a friend of mine in the challenge as I was handling Sam!
Aiden has proved to be a wonderful stud dog producing happy, healthy puppies of super quality. He is responsible for the largest litter so far delivered at Fendrove siring ten lovely puppies to Fendrove Gold Digga and litters of eights and nines. His puppies are always full of fun and have the most gentle natures....just like dad!
