Murphy was a dog that we had always admired from the ringside for his completely unexaggerated, honest breed type. Vicky and Mark had won a first CC with him in October 2002 from the UK’s top all-breed judge Terry Thorn and then a very quick second up in Scotland at the Working Breeds in November from Belgian judge Peter Van Montfoort. On that day he had also gone on to win a good Group Three placing.
He had a quiet 2003 but Julie then judged him at Manchester right at the start of 2004 and had gave him a really good Limit Class, also keeping him in the last few for the CC. It was not long after Manchester that Vicky had mentioned to Julie that as they had so many dogs that they wanted to show they were thinking about letting Murphy go into a pet home. This was too good an opportunity to miss and it was quickly agreed that Murphy should come to live at Winuwuk and that we would campaign him in partnership.
We enjoyed some great times with Murphy in the ring and, later in 2004, we took him over to the Irish weekend in Belfast. We were absolutely delighted when Shirley Butters gave him his third and qualifying CC at the Irish Boxer Club. There was much celebrating in Belfast that night!
Early in 2005 it was then a
real thrill when Murphy was the 2nd placed male at the Dog of the
Year Finals in February.
Now that he is entering retirement from the show ring we own him outright at Winuwuk.
