I was one of the Kiwi/Aussie spectators at the 75th Anniversary Norwich Championship Show in the UK, September 2007. The Reserve Dog, Junior and Yearling winner Rouletta Havin a Good Thyme, a handsome black and tan then 13 months old, was much admired. Rocky was the only Norwich ever to have defeated the most successful Norwich ever shown, Mrs Lesley Crawley's Ch Ragus Rings True. Rocky won 1CC and 5RCCs in Britain. Judges' critique comments about Rocky include:
"Masculine head and outlook, strong muzzle, dark eyes, well pigmented, ample bone. Compact body, well padded feet, sound mover, tail on top, harsh jacket" Liz Cartledge, 75th Anniversary Show, Sept 2007
"Lovely blk/tan, excellent coat, short body, good front, excellent tailset and quarters, moved well. Peter Green, May 2008
"Just superb and so close up to 1 [Ragus Rings True] in most departments.....Pleased to have had the opportunity of meeting another world class dog.. " Tan Nagrecha, July 2008
Rocky won a Reserve in Group ,Open in Show and seven Open in Groups during a short show career on his arrival in N.Z. He then settled in to full time fatherhood, and in his first full show year for progeny (2011) produced the leading Norwich in all categories on Dogzonline in New Zealand, with Norwester Time and Trouble winning the Show Dog and Breed score, while Norwester Time to Tango (owned by Linda Strongman and Kirsten Dixon) won the Norwich Rising Star points category, and was third young terrier on the National table. In 2012 N. Time and Trouble leads all Norwich categories, with Time to Tango & his younger full sister A Fine Time Lucille doing well.
Sadly, Rocky died peacefully and unexpectedly at home on 6th August 2012 from natural but unknown causes. A postmortem showed no specific cause of death, and no genetic health problems. His loving presence will be much missed by his family, but his contribution to the breed in Australasia will live on through his many sound and handsome children.
