Dam: Ch Taumac Gold For Riley

Ricky has had a very successful showing career winning his first Best in Group as a nine month old puppy and is still winning Best in Group and higher awards currently, having won some 12 Best in Group as well as approximately 30 Runner Up in Group and 4 Runner Up in Show as well as many other in Show awards.

Ricky was the result of an AI mating using frozen semen from England collected in 1985 and was the only male in a litter of two.

Ricky won the inaugural “Bert Kewish Memory Trophy for the Top Challenge Winning Golden in 2005 and the Top Dog Challenge Winner on two other occasions and the Best Intermediate in 2004.

Ricky is also a successful sire, having sired five Champions, with two more on their way to becoming Champions.

Ricky loves to go to shows and being shown.  Often, young handlers come up and ask to use Ricky in Junior Handler Classes - usually with success.   Ricky would leave home for a child.

Around the house Ricky is a practical joker pinching items from out of your pocket and hiding them and just as you are about to give up looking for the object he will go and return it to you with a wide smile and a twinkle in his eye.  A lot of fun, except when he lost a set of car keys - a $400.00 joke.
