Spinner - MBIS, BISS & MRBIS Supreme Champion Tendayi Dare Ya Ta Whispa

17th Oct 2002 - 13th January 2014

The History Maker

Spinner came to us mid 2005 as a child handlers dog for our daughter Hayley, but very quickly established himself as a super star in the ring being handled by both Vanessa and Hayley. His show record speaks for itself and he is undeniably one of Australia's top winning Brittany at All Breeds Level ever. 

Spinner was the First Brittany to be a MULTIPLE ALL BREEDS BEST IN SHOW winner and he retired with four plus a BEST IN SHOW at a Gundog Specialty. Along with these wins he had 4 RUNNER UP TO BEST IN SHOW awards, 17 BEST IN GROUPS and 17 Runner up to BEST IN GROUPS. He had 15 Class in Show awards and too many in groups to count. Spinner has always given everything he has to give in the showring, and has been described by many as a great little show man. We received constant feedback from Judges about his flawless movement, and that he had the correct spring of rib and substance for a Brittany, and a stunning strong head. We agree whole heartedly.

Spinner's head and movement have always gained the attention of Judges. With shots like this it is easy to see why.


Spinner always joins in the birthdays even wearing his birthday hat at Jakes 9th Birthday in Darwin in 2007.

All showing and work leaves a tired handler and showdog. Is this cute or what?


Spinner retired from the show ring on his 9th Birthday by winning Best of Breed over the top Brittany's in NSW again, capping off the perfect career for him. He lived out his final years on the property with Helen (Vanessa's Mum) in the cottage. He was Helen's constant shadow and companion which was been great for both of them. Every morning we used to see him run past the house on his way to saying hello to the other Britt's and then on to the Dam to swim and chase the Ducks. He would then comes to the back door and say hello before running off back to Helen for the day. Retirement clearly suited him.



Can I have the Liver Mum? The bloody Dobermann doesn't need it, look at the size of him.
