When I saw photo of him, 'Harvey', in Yearbook taken at 10 months age, I could not anything but start to dream about to get this dog!! I called to kennel Inu-goya to buy him, but he was not for sale. Two years later his breeder Frank Bjerklund called me to ask if I'm still interested in him - and I really was... So a couple of months later I travelled to Norway
to pick him up with a little puppy Inu-goya Antaeus. What a lucky strike to get two such springers spaniels at same time!
Inu-goya Mountain Crest was an unforgettable personality, very special, charming man, who loved to play with toys and especially he loved to play with cones! Record was may be about 9 cones at same time in his mouth and some hanging from his ears too.

Harvey at ten months age
He was a superb Show Dog, who sometimes was a bit lazy and tired in breed ring, but he really waked up, when he noticed that he is in Group or Best in Show ring. He was 28 times Best of Breed, won 8 times Groups-1, at least as many Runner Up In Groups..and two Best in Shows. The other Best in Show award was given by Noel Hunton- Morgans, 'Dalati', GB.
He was 'Gundog of The Year 1987' in Finland.

Today over 12 years later we know, how well
this couple has matched in same pedigrees!
He was an excellent stud dog and sire of numerous champions. My personal favourite of his puppies was absolutely Int &
Fin& Dk Ch Springdale Real Dream (ex. Int Ch Adamant's Living Dream). This georgeous bitch won Best in Show in international show in Lyon, France.
We ourselves had a lovely daughter Int & Fin Ch Havis Amanda (ex. Springdale Life Style) by him. This bitch has had a great influence for our breeding at -90's and so has also had a brother of her Fin Ch Fin W-93 Hippopotamus. This male has been as well a great stud dog and daughter of him, Fin Ch Adamant's Rose d'Amore is a mother of many super winning springer spaniels of today.
