While a youngster Sparkie won many Puppy In Groups and followed up with Puppy In Shows. Winning her Puppy class (solid) at National Cocker Spaniel Council (Australia) Championship show, held by Cocker Spaniel Club of Victoria, judge Pamela Halkett stated then that Sparkie was a very nice type of golden bitch, mature looking. Lovely head and expression with kind dark eye. Good neck and shoulders. Nice body and strong quarters with plenty of width. Moved soundly and was well presented.
After having a litter, Sparkie journeyed back into the show ring for Cocker Spaniel Club of Victoria’s Championship show, under UK Specialist, Duncan Craig described Sparkie as a nice type red with sweet feminine head, good conformation, well angulated, nice straight front, well balanced on the move keeping a good topline.
At the moment Sparkie has returned from her holiday in sunny Queensland and is her usual over the top self being back home. While there Sparkie was being campaigned by Heather Ronan. We wish thank Heather with her success with showing SPARKIE, as at her first show in Queensland she won Best of Breed. STOP PRESS: Sparkie has followed up her first QLD win with a BEST IN GROUP & AUSTRALIAN BRED IN SHOW at Rockhampton K.C. Show on Sunday 28th August 2004.
At the moment, Sparkie is enjoying retirement - her life is full of chasing birds and receiving alot of love & cuddles and as you can see - SWIMMING!!!!
Her daughters continue to do her & us proud:
