Click for Rocco's Pedigree

You cannot have a Sopranos litter without a nod to the family's club...or without 
someone named "Rocco".

Rocco was a terrific show dog from the start, winning the Delaware Valley Soft 
Coated Wheaten Terrier Club Sweepstakes.  He was a "made man" before he turned 
a year, finishing his championship with a number of Best of Breed wins.

In 2007, Rocco was briefly specialled.  At the Hatboro Dog Club show during the 
National Specialty weekend, in a 93-dog entry, he received 1 of only 2 Awards of 
Merit given.  During the Specialty,  he made the first cut in the specials' class.  
Then Rocco became a TV star....briefly!  Having won the breed at the Philadelphia Kennel Club/National Dog Show, he was seen for a few seconds on national TV on Thanksgiving Day 2007 as 
the camera panned the Terrier Group.  

Always a contender in the ring, Rocco was 
always breeder-owner handled.  He sired 
his only litter, born July 2008, by CH Ballybae Una's Willow.  His daughter, 
Ballybae Willow's Zoe became a champion in August 2009 at the same show her 
father finished at 3 years earlier.
