Paavali's Maiden Voyage
2nd at Crufts 2013
Maddie is a very outgoing and loving little lady who enjoys being the centre of attention. She is Sunny's daughter and surprised us all by not being black like her parents. She is just beautiful and full of beans. Maddie has made her debut at The Southern Pomeranian Club Champ show where she won 1st in her class and 3rd in the special class. It's her first ever show at just 6 months and this has qualified her for Crufts 2013. Were absolutely delighted as she showed her little socks off and is an utter delight and privilege to be in the ring with.
Maddie has continued to delight us by already qualifying for Crufts 2014 and being awarded 2nd in Special puppy bitch at Crufts 2013! I love this little lady so much!

Southern Counties Champ Show 2013
Judge Graham B Foote - 2nd JB - D'Arcy & Duffield's Paavali's Maiden Voyage. In many ways she is very similar to the winner in build and head qualities, both have excellent eyes. There were too many in this class with large round eyes. She has more coat than the winner but I thought that on the day the winner just piped her on expression and movement, although I must say her movement was also very sound.
Melton Mowbray CS Open Show 2013
Judge Mr Chris Toynton - 1st D'arcy & Duffield's Paavali's Maiden Voyage. Young girl with plenty of coat, alert & vivacious, well defined stop, cheeky face, nice length of neck, feminine head, nicely developed forefront, compact body, tight feet, good taper of leg, sound mover that tracked well & covered the ground with ease.
