After several years searching for a suitable blood line to compliment our already successful Barleyarch Kennel we decided upon the VJK-MYST dogs. Their ideas and thoughts as breeders seem to coincide with ours so much that we felt that with a bit of luck they would produce us a dog that would enable us to move forward without having to compromise on what we hold dear; that is, a dog that can be a valued member of a shoot, a successful showdog and a kind hearted friend.

We could not have wished for a better addition to our kennel than in Sh Ch/Am Ch VJK MYST Sterling of Barleyarch, a title-holder in the US on his 7 month birthday. His pedigree is built on solid work and show lines, and already 5 or 6 of his siblings have working awards as well as many show wins to their credit. He was not with us for long before he slotted in beautifully and has become best pals with our own young male Sh Ch Barleyarch Paxo JW.

Sterling has had some fabulous wins including a qualifying heat for the Eukanuba Champion Stakes and then amazingly 2nd overall at the Finals, He then topped this with his 1st CC and BOB from a breed specialist at just over 14 months of age followed by his 2nd CC, BOB and amazingly the Gundog Group, quickly followed by his 3rd CC again with BOB and a Group shortlist, followed by his latest CC, BOB and a Group 3. Although the Draconian docking laws have prevented us from showing him as much as we would have liked, he will continue to be shown at some Championship shows. He ended his first full show saeson as TOP GSP, and is currently leading TOP GSP male 2011.

Sterling is Hip Scored, Eye tested, Heart tested clear and now tested by DNA as "Normal" for Cone Degeneration.

We are now very proud that his first crop of pups have hit the showring, his first litter producing Sh Ch Barleyarch Polkadot JW Top Puppy 2011, his second litter producing Barleyarch Farthing at Drysika current TOP Puppy 2010 already with a Reserve CC, his 3rd litter producing Winterwell Tootsie Roll and Winterwell Jelly Belly both also Reserve CC winners. Which all goes to prove what we had hoped, that good breeding produces good dogs!
