The Story so far..............

From a chance conversation I had the opportunity to choose a golden bitch puppy from a beautiful litter bred by Tricia Bentley;  I chose Blondie (aptly named by Steve, Tricia’s husband) and I just knew….. !

Ever had that feeling when you’ve just got something you’ve always wanted ?

She was a ball of fluff well into her puppy year but definitely made an impression at her first outing – the Cocker Club 2010; second in her class to the eventual Best Puppy in Show.

Since then she has proved herself to be an outstanding example of the breed in both type and temperament, in the Show ring and at home – a credit to her breeder and my ideal.

 

She has achieved the following major awards, to date:

Best puppy in Show – West of England Cocker Club 2010 – Judge: Tracy Herd

Best In Show – Solid Colours Cocker Spaniel Association 2011 – Judge Mrs R Adams
