CHAMPION RHEGED ADDAON FAB TALIESIN
(AKA – ‘WINDY POPS’)
Sire: Supreme Champion Ricochez Auryn Talyessin CD RAE
Dam: Grand Champion Ricochez Dyfri Addiena
To say our young homebred Welsh Springer Spaniel has taken us on a whirlwind debut season would be an understatement! From his 2019 opening gambit of winning Best Exhibit in Show & Runner Up Best Exhibit in Show through to his 2019 finale - Runner Up Best Exhibit in Show - this young Welshman had a fabulous first year out there playing in the ‘big dog sandpit’.
In his first season out, he amassed 7x Best in Show, 5x Runner Up in Show & 21 Best Exhibit in Group wins – with many of these achievements bestowed upon him by Breed & Gundog connoisseurs alongside many experienced Australian & International judges. He was also awarded #1 National Rising Star Welsh Springer Spaniel, #1 All Breeds NT & #1 Gundog NT (Dogzonline Pointscore), & with multi Class in Show wins also under his collar, this super young Gundog held his own against some truly lovely dogs.
A fluent Welsh speaker, ‘Windy’ clearly displays all the hallmarks of his ancient breed – from his classic leaf-shaped ears, through his ‘smooth, powerful, ground covering action’ to the very tip of his merry tail he is certainly doing his illustrious ancestors proud. Having recently embarked on ‘Scent Work’ training, his amazing nose is proving to serve him equally as well as his good looks – he is not just a pretty face! We are very much looking forward to getting him back out there again as he closes in on his Supreme Champion title & who knows? He may even tackle the trial ring in the future & if he is anything like his sire, that could be a whole lot of fun as well.
