Marv won all her champion and grand champion majors over boys, and quickly finished her Championship from the 9-12 month class. At just 10.5 months old, she became my very first homebred show champion!
We had an amazing year in 2018, winning the Sussex Spaniel Club of America National Best of Opposite Sex ribbon under Breeder/Owner/Judge Doug Johnson, and then Best in Show (BISS) for both Pacific Northwest Specialty shows over good sized entries. Marvel finished the year as the #1 Sussex Spaniel bitch in the US, and earned a Top 5 Westminster Invitation.
In April 2017, she had a lovely litter with Frank and seven of her daughters are in show homes. Two of them won the National 9-12 month bitches and National Best of Sweeps awards. I am looking forward to seeing all of them blossom and grow over the upcoming years.
Marv holds OFA Certifications for her normal heart, eyes, and DNA health clearances. She BAER tested normal.
