Never was a dog more aptly named than our golden boy Alvin! Named after a very naughty chipmunk by our daughter Harriet, and just like his namesake, Alvin is so mischievous and curious, and this, coupled with his kind, biddable nature just epitomises his wonderful breed.
Commencing his show career as a baby puppy in October 2019, Alvin, through many ups and downs, attained his Champion title at the Palmerston Gundog Show in July 2021. As our first show dog, his tolerant and ever forgiving nature was always to the fore as he achieved many wins and places - despite his newbie handler! Together we have proudly been awarded a Best in Group, Runner Up in Group wins and received the nod for many Class placings.
Our wonderful journey has been made much more enjoyable through the support and encouragement we have received from the DogsNT community. There are so many to thank for their guidance (you know who you are), but a special mention goes out to Julie Blight and Sarah Gordon. We are truly thankful for your incredible mentoring.
We will be eternally grateful to Alvin’s breeder Sarah Orr for her trust in us and her ongoing unmitigated support and appreciation for his achievements. Alvin is not ‘just a dog’, he is a loved family member and an absolute joy to live with. He is a credit to both his breeder and his illustrious ancestors.
Alvin is proudly campaigned by Monica, Anthony and Harriet Flack, Lyons, Darwin, NT.
