About Connor
Connor is a substantial young man with good depth and width of chest, a good topline, solid bone, and good wrinkle. Yet, for such a solid boy he is very light on his feet and moves superbly. He enjoys being shown and really strides out around the ring (often holding his lead in his mouth).
He has done well in the showring, achieving his Australian Champion title at the tender age of 13 months and 5 days, beating older, more mature dogs along the way.
He is a Class in Group winner and also won the Intermediate Class at Toowoomba Royal and the Aust. Bred Class at the Brisbane Royal in 2005 and the Aust. Bred Classes at Toowoomba Royal and Brisbane Royal in 2006. We were delighted with Connor's 2nd place in the Intermediate Dog Class at the 2006 Sydney Royal Easter Show - (4 dogs in the class). Of all his results, this is the one that I was most thrilled about! (Although, he actually came second to Benjamin.)
Connor took Challenge Dog and Reserve Best of Breed at the 2007 Royal Canberra Show under Mr R. Scoggins (USA), against some very strong competition. This was Connor's last show as he is now retired from the showring.
Connor has a very unique "quirky" personality. He is the "thinker" of the family - (you can actually see him thinking things through). We're sure he's been here before - that he's an "old soul" - he just knows too much. He's definitely mum's favourite!
He loves to come in the house at breakfast time and get under the kitchen table so he can have his tummy tickled while we're eating breakfast. He also likes to come inside when I get home of an afternoon. He jumps on our bed and shows off by rolling on his back and kicking his legs in the air! I have to watch him as he gets so carried away he's been known to fall off the bed. He's also been known to chew my pillow. Drool and pillows just don't go together - LOL!
Connor was a dog we never bred from due to multiple health problems.
********************
Connor passed away on 19 March 2013 aged 9 years, 10 months and three weeks. He was the most amazing dog we have ever met and he is so terribly and sadly missed. RIP my CDBD.
