Marvin was born on the 03 June 2005 in a litter of 3 boys and 1 girl.
Marvin is a lovely light blue roan boy - with good substance, nice and short, good angulations and a lovely coat. He had a very good show career winning many Best of Breeds and Group placings in Guernsey and Jersey and placing at UK shows too. The highlight of his career was being awarded a VHC in a class of 21 at Crufts 2009 under Judge Mrs A Koskelo (Finland).
Unfortunately in August 2011 Marvin under went a big operation due to a tumour in his bladder and as a result of this he had to be castrated as his prostate glands were enlarged :-( :-( He has been back in the Show ring and was awarded BoB and Group 2 in October 2011.
He has been out and about in 2012 and had a few Best Opposite Sex's results but he has now retired from the show ring and enjoys life to the full at home being a very loved and spoilt Boy :-)
He is a joy to live with although very cheeky and hates being told off ... he loves everybody and everybody seems to love this cheeky chap too.
20 February 2019 - A sad day for us all as we had to say good bye to Marvellous Marvin ... He went down hill very quickly after spending a night at the vets and the kindest thing although absolutely heartbreaking was to let our lovely old boy go ... Rest in peace Marvin until we all meet again ... We will never forget you with the mischief you caused and the laughter you brought us xxx
