Here is Frankie's development from a puppy. It includes lots of photos and chronicles his short life so far.

He was born on 2nd March 1999, by Show Champion Asquannes Gonzales x Show Champion Sugar Plum. He was one of 3 pups, another dog plus a sister who only lived for a few hours. From the minute he could wag his tail he did, and he was christened 'Fun-Time Frankie'. He is a wonderful dog to own and show, and everyone who has anything to do with him cannot help but be impressed by his charm. He is a true gent with a cheeky streak !!

My sincere thanks go out to all those judges who, by awarding 'my boy' top honours in their way acknowledge the years of dedication that have gone into producing my young star.
At the end of May 2001 Frankie stands as Top Gundog in the Dog World Points list. He is also currently Top Cocker 2001.

** Stop press - along with his 18th C.C. & B.o.B. at Paignton Championship Show - he won 3rd in the Gundog Group - his 3rd such win.

2003 and he's at his best

Frankie has not been shown so much this year as he has already been judged by some judges, and of course we have youngsters coming up too. However, in my opinion, he is at his best and two judges have seen fit to give him the C.C., namely Lesley Spencer (Terriles) at Birmingham in May.

and Carol Wood at Windsor, when he was also B.O.B and 4th in the Gundog Group.

Then on the 20th July, Frankie's daughters did the ' double' at the show of all shows, the Cocker Club Championship show, by winning the CC and RBIS - Charbonnel Frankette JW - and Reserve CC to Sh. Ch. Charbonnel Lynette JW. Many thanks to the judge Mrs. Angela Hackett (Lindridge) for a marvellous day. These two are both by Warlord out of Amorette. Thank you Frankie for giving me these beautiful girls from their wonderful mum Amorette. What a lucky person I am !!!

On the 10th of April 2004 SH. CH. CHARBONNEL WARLORD stepped into the record books by becoming:

        THE TOP WINNING BLACK COCKER SPANIEL 
DOG OF ALL TIME IN THE UK 

The above portrait was lovingly and skilfully painted by Anne Zoutsos.
  When Sally Ellison awarded Frankie his 29th C.C. and Best in Show at Cocker Club of Scotland he overtook the illustrious Sh. Ch. Canigou Cambrai (BIS Crufts 1996) as the top winning black male of all time in the UK.  I am VERY, VERY PROUD to be the breeder and owner of such a wonderful dog, and would like to thank all those judges who have put him where he is today.
