Handler: Mark Dakin & Tad Dakin

"Disco became a part of my life when we drove to Lincoln, Nebraska to pick him up in August of 1983. He was 3 months old and the most beautiful, playful, puppy I had ever seen. He started his show career shortly after turning 6 months old - and completed his championship in 3 shows He was shown on and off during 1984 - winning and placing in multiple groups- as well as Best in Show. We decided to campaign him in 1985. At the end of that year - he was Canada’s #1 Am. Cocker Spaniel, #1 Sporting Dog and #2 All Breeds in Canada. In Limited showing in 1986 - Disco was Canada’s #1 Am. Cocker Spaniel and #2 Sporting Dog. He also won Best of Variety in January 1986 at the American Spaniel Club Specialty in New Jersey. In limited showing in the USA and Canada in 1986, 1987 & 1988 -  Disco won multiple BB, BOV’s, Group placings, Best in Specialty and Best in Show wins.  He was also No. 4 Parti Colour Cocker in the USA in 1987.  Disco has sired multiple Canadian and American champions - including BIS, BISS, BPIS  and group winners  I still miss his outgoing, playful, loving personality everyday."
