Keldy Bordelaise(right). Founder of my kennels.
This is a picture of my foundation bitch.Bred from working lines.The liver dog is Sh Ch Hillanhi Halvar,sire of my brood bitch.
My kennel was founded 20yrs ago with this flashy bitch Keldy Bordelaise( willow), ex keldy Silver Queen and Mathams Con . I bought her purely for working but also ended up showing her after entering a GSPC club open show and winning two first rosettes not knowing anything about how to handle or show a dog!!!! It was quite a learnig curve . I went onto winning 1 RCC and 2 CC with BOB and before I had chance to make her a champion was cruelly hit with a blow. Willow was involved in a car accident and lost a leg. She remained in my family for another five years before passing away. She was a true inspiration to any dog on three legs. She hunted prolifically, swam and although slower than her daughter Daisy kept up with the best. Her temperament was second to none. All the local children made a b-line to see her.
Ankerwycke Veuve Clicquot.
This is Daisy, (daughter of Keldy Bordelaise).
Daisy was Willows daughter. She was 5yrs old in this picture.Very much like her mother, except was easier to train for the field. She had a lovely soft mouth and was used on a local shoot and competed at working tests. She had all the natural hunting instincts but wored in a methodical way and couldn't do enough to please you.Biddable like her father, Tom, (Sh Ch Hilanhi Halvar). She was shown at championship level and had several 1st places and a reserve ticket..
She was hip scored 7:5
Heart tested clear

My current brood bitch is health screened and I only breed for my own purposes. My dogs live with myself , husband and young sons.
