Finally we are expecting puppies from our beautiful Maya, after a disappointing last year with failed insemination. This time we went with a natural mating to increase our chances. The pedigree combines these two lovely males, the grandfathers Mr Darcy and our own Rocco, seen here placing as No. 1 and No. 2 best male at the European Dog show 2015 in Lilleström, Norway. The entry was 101 Dalmatians and the judge was highly respected Mr Frank Kane, who needs no further presentation... Mr Darcy is the CC breed record holder in the UK and ended this day with BOB and BOG-2. Our Rocco was a Norwegian champion on the day and Top Male in Sweden 2014.
