Before joining us he had some lovely wins with his breeder whilst awaiting to come down under.
Stud Book Number
Debuting April 2013 (finding his feet showing outside and in the heat) he slowly acclimatised and won his first CC under breed specialist Mr G Kill on 9 May 2013 and hasn't looked back since then - titling with ease. He had some time out in August & September 2013 when he had his tail docked due to injury and delighted us with his returns to the rings and has continued his wins in great style. We didn't think he would return to the rings after the docking, so every single win with him has been a great pleasure and bonus. We told his UK breeder we would title him, we didn't expect to get the ultimate Supreme title, and with double the Best in Show wins required and with more than double the Best in Group wins.
He has continued to do us all proud, and gained his GRAND and his SUPREME titles in July 2014 - no mean feat with his first CC given downunder May 2013. We BELIEVE (and please let us know if incorrect) that he is the FIRST UK IMPORT of the BREED to gain a SUPREME title.
We are so proud of every win - and he is winning under International judges and doing us so proud !
Our lovely boy may live in FNQ but has some fabulous wins including 2 x BIS and 1 RUBiS in NSW and a RUBIS at Durack - making us all so proud !!!

WHAT A YEAR - Darcey finished 2014 as #1 Cocker Spaniel (DOL POINTSCORE) Nationwide
Hipscored ( BVA 7/6 = 13) and clear for prcd-PRA and AHRN (FN) plus a proven sire, leaving two litters behind in the UK and a four litters already in Australia.
We are proudly showing two of his kids - his gold son (Bond - Macdolly Double O Seven - already a RUBIG winner to his father and now a BIS ALL BREEDS winner at 12 mths) and often pushing his daddy, with many Reserve CC's to him - and his black daughter (Gracey - Macdolly Outrageous - already multi In Group awards) who is waiting in the wings to rejoin the show team in 2015 having been in season at just 8 months of age.
We are so very grateful to Val and Colin Flowers ( www.totenkopfcockerspaniels.co.uk ) for entrusting him all the way to Australia and we know they are so proud of every win this dog has down under.
Thank you Darcey for such a wonderful time in the ring - both Denise and Terri have enjoyed lovely wins on the end of the lead with this boy, he has certainly made it hard for us to find another to take over from this bog
