SH CH CANIGOU ROCK STAR
Despite a few grey hairs, Rocky is still too good to leave at home.
At Blackpool on 24/6/17 he won Veteran Dog, CC and BoB and was shortlisted in the Group.
Overall in 2017 he won 2CCs and 1 BoB and was Top Cocker Veteran.
At the age of nine and a half, we believe he is the oldest male Cocker to win a CC (at LKA on 10.12.17).
Who’s the Daddy?!!
