The 2015 Round-up

Well, 2014 was engulfed in preparations and saving for our foundation litter. It meant a quiet year competition and show wise which did not go unnoticed by others, but I can safely say it was worth it. Lots of lovely feedback from breeders around the globe who I highly respect and the beginnings of a nice waiting list should I ever decide I am ready to breed once again.

With 2015 over now I can reflect as always.

Faith has enjoyed her shows and managed a lovely placing under Patsy Hollings and she also went on to qualify for Crufts 2016. She has begun attending competition obedience classes, took part in her first gundog working tests, her field training came on slowly but surely and she she completed her first season of beating and finished it with an invite to return next season.

Mum and Dad have had to take a back seat to their daughter as there is only so much time and money but I think they are both enjoying the downtime although they have still managed a little agility and been placed and also conformation shows with Mum Crufts 2016 qualified at her very first show of the year under the highly respected Breed Specialist Patsy Hollings!

I am also very proud of all the Charmed litter babies. Lovely Roo Crufts 2016 qualified at his very first show. Dottie attended various conformation shows and even won a Best Puppy in Show at a companion show. Zuri smashed longhaired records in Portugal including winning 6 puppy groups in a row (thats every single one she attended) and an adult group 3 at just 11mths old! Zuri finished 2015 as Portugals 7th Top Puppy ALL BREEDS. I catch up with Ichabod and Little Lodies owners every so often too and both doing well in their lovely pet homes and I am grateful that I do regularly hear from their owners.

Overall we didnt manage to enter much, my mum was very ill and sadly passed away during 2015 but we did have fun wherever we went and whatever we did.
