Murphy is owned by both me and my mum. I had a soft spot for Murphy from day 1 but had not said anything just in case he wasn't the one we decided to keep. There was just something about him that made him stand out. He was also the one that was always found to be nibbling mum's ear lobe - he still does it now. I was so pleased when we chose Murphy as ours.

Murphy really is our loveable loon and likes nothing better than lots of snuggles. He has such a great personality and you can never be sad or mad for long when he is around. Murphy has several names amongst our flatcoat friends, Murphilicious being the main one, along with 'Smurph' and 'Monster Murph'. He fits all of these on occasion :0)

He adores his soft toys especially his purple octopus which we bought at one of his first championship shows and which he promptly carried back to the bench in the carrier bag. He always greets everyone with enormous enthusiasm and usually grabs their sleeves to help them on their way. He loves water which goes without saying really and will even sit in the bath awaiting his shower before a show.

He exceeded our expectations as a puppy especially as he was the first dog that we had owned that really enjoyed showing. He loves being in the ring and he just oozes the loveable personality that we adore. He is such an enormous character and we really do have a very special bond that I think anyone that sees us together cannot fail to understand. We were thrilled when he gained his Junior Warrant in December 2010 - our first homebred stud book number.

Murphy sired his first litter in September 2011 and his second in 2013.
