Bliss left me suddenly on 27th July 2009 just 3 weeks short of her 11th birthday. She is now back with her best friend Indy at the Rainbow Bridge.
I am very greateful to Val Jones for allowing me to share my life with such a fantastic dog. My foundation bitch and my precious lady.
Thank you also to Bliss for being the mother to my first litter. You live on in your new great grandchildren. Liffey is so like you, I can see you everyday in her gorgeous head and expression and her beautiful eyes. xxxxx


Bliss was an absolute sweetie. My special girl, and a joy to live with.
A VERY naughty puppy who grew into an angel!

She won classes at Championship Show level and has many Best of Breeds and Adult and Puppy group placings at Open shows.

Bliss passed the KC Good Citizens Bronze, Silver & Gold tests.

She gave me a lovely litter of 4 puppies by ShCh Benvellyn Excalibur, who have all inherited her sweet temperament and love of life!!

In the show ring are:
HOPEVALLEY MORNING XPLORER (now retired from the show ring)-Championship show winner. Scout has his Stud Book Number. Crufts class winner 2010

H MORNING LEAVES AMONG WOODAVENS Championship show winner. River had her Stud Book Number

Championship show winner. Phoebe won the RCC at the FCRCS 2007 & has her Stud Book Number

3 stud book numbers from a litter of 4 puppies, not bad going Bliss!!!

Puppies out of Morning Suprise (by Shiredale Lord of The Rings) are Bochilbarley Bethlehem, B Winter Night, B Snowstorm, B Winter Angel Among Ghilgrange who all have their SBN.

From the 2nd litter (by Polgara Rising Star JW) B November Mist Over Hopevalley, B November Love, B November Love, B November Gun of Tillisla & B November Tide JW, all of who have their SBN

Bliss has been consistantley placed in her veteran classes and has qualified for Crufts 2006 & 2007 (although she couldn't go in 07 as her breeder, Val Jones, was judging the bitches!)
