Sire: Tobermoray Ryan's Legacy
Dam: Laetare Cerafyn For Marie At Jakovall JW
Darcy was from our 2nd homebred litter, and came into the world in the early hours of the 1st of December 2000, along with his 4 brothers and 3 sisters. You can see how the rest of the litter is doing on our Puppy Progress Page.
Darcy made his debut in the show ring, and qualified for Crufts 2002 and 2003 on numerous occasions and later gained his JW and stud book number. He also qualified for the Border Collie Pup of the Year 2002 and 2003, not an easy boy to show as all he wanted to do was "work" the dog in front and would never ever stand still!!
At the Midland Border Collie Club Utility day, he was introduced to sheep. Boy did he enjoy this, he had a wonderful natural working ability. He also showed a lot of potential in his obedience work, just my lack of time that didn't carry him further!
Darcy was The West of England Border Collie Club Top Puppy 2001, and gained his Junior Warrant on 4 May 2002.
He was eye tested normal, CEA/DNA normal (both his sire and dam are CEA/DNA tested normal) and BAER hearing tested normal and hip scored 4:5.
In December 2006 Darcy was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer which was operated successfully on and he was given the all clear a year later.
Then sadly on the 15th October 2009 he passed away in his sleep. A huge shock to us, and he has left a huge gap in our pack and is greatly missed.
