Ko is Australia's most successful stud dog and has surpassed every expectation for success in the all-breeds and specialty rings. His sterling breed qualities, fabulous temperament, versatility and endurance have easily made him one of the top RRs ever produced.

To further cement his place in the breed history Ko reproduced his qualities in his progeny. Ko's progeny include multi BIS and BISS winners both in Australia and overseas. Progeny that has itself gone on to produce BIS and BISS winners themselves. With four Grand Champions to his name - three of whom are BIS winners! and a fourth in the making; Ko's legacy is of extraordinary depth and width in the worldwide RR show scene.

At Specialty level Ko's record is extraordinary with multiple Best in Show awards, holding the record for Best Headed Dog awards and topping that with multiple Best Gaited and multiple Sires Progeny awards. Ko won under international and Australian breed specialists in 5 states of Australia.

In All-Breeds Ko was awarded RUBIS (1000+ entries), multi class in show, multi Best in Group etc. Royal Best of Breed wins in Queensland and Victoria are amongst his many achievements.

To demonstrate his versatility Ko had also been awarded his Companion Dog obedience title & Field Champion (QLCA).

Ko is Qld's only ROM (RRCI) awarded male with over 25 titled progeny and more on the way. Two daughters and a son have already achieved ROM status.

Best of all Mister Ko was a wonderful companion and the best friend anyone could ask for. He loved the applause of the showring but even more so cuddling up in bed for a quiet snooze. I have been truly blessed to have the honour to share my life with this remarkable dog.

Ko left us peacefully and with great dignity in Nov 2005 - two months shy of his 14th birthday. Forever in my heart his legacy lives on in his progeny.
