US Grandchampion Palacegarden Malachy
Palacegarden McCafferty x Palacegarden Tansy
Palacegarden Malachy was never shown in the UK. He left our kennel at 5 months old when he went to live in America with his current owner David Fitzpatrick.
We first met David Fitzpatrick when he judged the Ventura Pekingese Club Ch Show in 2008. We showed 3 dogs and got 3 Firsts, the CC & RBIS with Baroque and RCC & BPB with Liberty. Later, David wrote to us congratulating us on our dogs and saying he would be interested in obtaining a male from us.
At that time we had 2 fabulous puppy boys about the same age – Osric and Malachy. It was a difficult decision to decide between them. We sent David photos of Malachy. He liked him and it was arranged for Malachy to go to America. We knew we were parting with an outstandingly good puppy but we never imagined the heights that Malachy would reach with owner/handler David.
In 2011 Malachy celebrabted 100 BIS awards and was continuing to add to his impressive wins. He was No2 Top Dog All Breeds USA for the second consecutive year. He was Group 1 at Westminster 2011. The following year Palacegarden Malachy became the most famous Pekingese in the world when he was Best in Show Westminster 2012.
