NZ Ch Backhills In Every Way (Imp Sweden)

Robin arrived in New Zealand from Sweden in 2003 and fitted "in every way" to our family life from his first day here. We would like to take this oppurtunity to thank his breeders Karin and Britt-Mari Staaf for allowing such a lovely dog to come to us.

Robin had the most super outgoing temperement, he loved everybody and was adored by all.
Here are some of his critique's from specialist overseas judges-
Mr Moray Armstrong-UK Bitcon Cockers.-Super head & eye. Excellent legs, feet, ribs, topline,tail set. Very good quarters. Excellent coat & condition. Moves well.

exaggeration, lovely head & eye. Very sound.

Mr Colin Muirhead UK Shipton Kennels. Gorgeous B/R. Good head well set neck. Good shoulders, well ribbed. Good legs & feet. Goodquarters. Good mover. Cobby.

Sadly as happens to all our lovely old friends Robin has now passed away. We miss him terribly .
