June 15th 2006 – March 25th 2016.
Ch Zarcrest Special Effects for Frankanwen was given sleep after the diagnosis of splenic haemangiosarcoma with pulmonary metastatic disease.
Roxy was co-owned and handled by Wendy Barrow (Frankanwen), her sire was the Australian import Keaton Kiss the Girls at Frankanwen bred by Eric Soti and her dam The Late Patty Grimes Mondricia Regal Holly, she became the 30th Champion for the famous Frankanwen longhaired dachshund kennel.
She was always a very much loved and valued member of the family here at ‘Zarcrest’ she will be very sadly missed here as she had an enormous personality which she kept right to the end.
In the show ring Roxy became a Champion quickly winning her first CC under Zena Thorn-Andrews as a very young junior at Birmingham National, her second under Marianne Nixon at the Hound Association, followed by her title at WKC under The Late Roy Metcalfe, her fourth CC came from Sandra Marshall at Blackpool, handled on this final occasion by Zara as Wendy could not make it to the show.
In the whelping box she produced record breakers! The multi Group Winner Ch Zarcrest Hugo Boss, and his siblings Ch Zarcrest Devil Wears Prada owned by Will Harris.
The CC Winning Zarcrest Gabriella Sabatini at Darsoms, Zarcrest Paco Rabanne at Darsoms and their brother Zarcrest Georgio Armani at Darsoms all owned by Cindy Dare and a further litter produced a group placed male for Cindy in Ch Zarcrest Marc Jacobs at Darsoms, all contributed to herself adding the accolades of ‘Top Brood Bitch’ in both 2012 and 2014, which also saw Zarcrest as ‘Top Breeders’.
Thank You Wendy without her none of this would have been possible.
