The Boy Hopefuls

Here are my three boy hopefuls, Malcolm (top), Morris (right), and Snicket (left)

Morris and Malcolm have won BPIB and BPIS so are automatically Crufts Qualified... little Snicket will have to wait until after Crufts (and for his ears to come up) before he goes out.

BPIS and BPBIS at Northern and Eastern Counties Pap Club Champ Show

Last weekend I was thrilled when three of my puppies did very well at The Northern and Eastern Counties Papillon Club Champ Show. Malcolm and Reggie, at their first show achieved 1st and 2nd in Minor Puppy Dog under Judge David Roe (Sunshoo).. and Poppy gained a first in Minor Puppy Bitch under Bubbles Wood Davies (Claretta).

This put Malcolm and Poppy in competition with the Puppy Dog and Bitch winners, and they both rose to the occasion and achieved BPD and BPB. In the Puppy Challenge it was Malcolm who achieved Best Puppy In Show.

Morris Gets Best Puppy In Breed

I was thrilled on Friday when "Morrie" aka Farleysbane Morris Minor For Petitchien was awarded Best Puppy In Breed by Monique Van Brempt (Belgium) at Midland Counties Championship Show.

Morrie will never be the biggest boy in the class (lol) but happily sits within breed standard (currently 8.5 inches at 8 months old) ... so we will see how he matures, and how the judges view him as time goes by.

With thanks to Anne MacGregor for the lovely photo, and to Sue and Carol for entrusting me with this lovely lad.

Milly is a Junior Champion

Great news today from Ireland is that Milly has achieved her fifth 1st Excellent in Junior today - which means that she is now a Junior Irish Champion. I am thrilled that she has managed this as she can now come home again. I have just booked my ferry to collect her LOL.

Happy Days Are Here Again

After a hectic couple of weeks, and a fraught day yesterday I can finally relax a little and enjoy our newest arrivals :-)

These gorgeous babies (2 girls and 2 boys) are from my Graycaz Take The Michael and Dolcissimo Best of Both Worlds (Irl)... linebred to both Crufts BOB Ch Graycaz Othello and Crufts BOB Ch Tussalud Storyteller...

All were a very clear tricolour at birth - fingers crossed that they thrive.

A Pleasing Litter

I forgot to say on the blog that Alfie (Petitchien's Alfie Moon) became a VDH Jnr Champion a few months ago. His litter sister Milly (Petitchien's Over The Moon) has also been doing well of late and is only one 1st Excellent away from achieving her Jnr Champions title in Ireland. Not to be outdone now we have the great news that litter brother Teddy has achieved a RDCC in Belfast at just over a year old.
I could not be happier :-)
