SEMILLON is a real enthusiast!

He enjoys showing, running with me cycling, swimming & retrieving.

Very sensitive and affectionate, he’s also

a blood donor, helping to save other dogs.


SEMILLON is now at stud to approved,

hip-scored bitches. His progeny are all ridged and free from Dermoid Sinus.

MATILDA was on loan to UMHLANDLA in 2014 and she produced 10 healthy puppies in August, 5 of each and all have correct ridges and no Dermoid Sinus. From this litter, I have kept  a dog and called him RIOJA.

Rioja is the fourth male in my line and has a little of each of his ancestors qualities …

KAHLUA was bred in Northern Ireland by Elizabeth Halliday of the KALUNDA kennel and joined us in July 2013.

She and Semillon compliment each other very well and together produced a beautiful litter of 13 puppies at the end of March 2016. There are 7 dogs and 6 bitches, all but one puppy are a lovely red wheaten colour but none have inherited dad’s liver nose! Lots of white socks too!  Not many ridge faults and no Dermoid Sinus.

I will keep a bitch puppy and call her PROSECCO.
