Dirnanean's Wise Man of Bramblyn (known as Bruster to his friends), was the 2nd puppy born in his mother Rayne's final litter of just two dog puppies by Hindringham Hot Pursuit to Bramblyn. He and his brother were the last "Dirnaneans" to be bred by me prior to my sister, Dr E C Svennevik taking over sole interest in the Dirnanean kennel name during 2009.

When 8 weeks old, Bruster and his litter brother, Breacán (Dirnanean's Shining Knight of Bramblyn) went to live within a few miles of each other, their father and various other paternal relatives in Surrey, and it was always part of our plan to use the boys to help continue the Dirnanean line, subject to clear eyes and acceptable hip scores in due course. Bruster takes after his father's side of the family, whilst his brother Breacán is much more like their mother.

Bruster has clear eyes under the KC/BVA scheme, and a hip score of 5:4 (see health test results above).
