Multiple group placing English Cocker Spaniel, Utility obedience competitor, Best Puppy in Puppy Sweepstakes at the English Spaniel Club of America, Huron Ohio, 2009, defeating 120+ other puppies.  My best buddy and the very best English Cocker Spaniel I have ever bred.  At times, the most frustrating ECS, particularly when he had his own interpretation of the obedience rulebook.

TUX obtained his CD and RN obedience titles in October 2011.  He obtained his Canadian RA title in Spring 2012 and completed 2012 by being the #1 English Cocker Spaniel in Rally Obedience.  He completed his Novice Intermediate (CDI) obedience title in November 2012. TUX completed his CDX December 2014 and was competing at the Utility level of obedience. His last obedience ring performance was May 2017, when he completed his American CD with very respectable marks in the 190’s.

He was a high energy, high drive boy, who loved attention.  He was smart and an absolute joy to train, although at times his antics in the ring seriously tested my patience.  On occasion, he “played to the crowd”  by misbehaving while in the obedience trial ring. This was not a good thing to do, particularly while competing in the Utility ring.  He knew what my “buttons” were and he knew how to push them. 🙂

TUX sustained some sort of neurological injury in early January 2018.  He was treated with significant doses of prednisone and painkillers and improved for a number of months.  Ultimately he succumbed.  I am very grateful for all those long, special walks in our fields and all the extra time I had with him.

According to “CanuckDogs”, TUX was the top Rally Obedience English Cocker Spaniel in 2012 and the #2 Obedience English Cocker Spaniel in 2014.
