Puppies 11 Months and More Success

Carries puppies are now 11 months and have enjoyed a wonderful month in the show ring!


Lizzie (Desalazara Honey Honey) is now a Czech Junior Champion and she is the first Pyrenean in the Czech Republic to have won these titles Junior BIG, and Junior Best of Day. Well done Bara on all your hard work with Lizzie.


Shane (Desalazara Funky Feet) Was Best Puppy at Border Union, beating his sister Poppy (Desalazara Mamma Mia) who was Best Puppy Bitch and what critiques they received from Judge Albert Wight:-


Shane: "what an exciting start to the day with this utterly charming 11 months youngster. I loved him & am sure he is a future star. Tall & elegant yet powerful in body, bags of bone & substance, so free striding with a light action, head is a delight, oozing charm in expression from really good eyes, very good neck & head carriage, well ribbed, good width behind the withers & ribs to the elbow, croup is so well moulded, in excellent coat & moved out so positively. I'm positive he is a titleholder in waiting."


Poppy: "I see she is litter sister to the outstanding BP. Lovely size, nicely headed, ample weight in foreface for her sex, such good eyes & pigmentation, enough neck, firm in back line & a smooth well rounded rump, in splendid coat, she moved out with an even stride & seemed to be enjoying her time in the ring."


Fernando (Desalazara Fernando) and Florence (Desalazara Dancing Queen) have continued to win Puppy Dog and Puppy Bitch with Fernando beating his sister for Best Puppy. Of all the puppies Fernando has really started to make his mark. At Bath Championship Show he won BP and took the dog CC and then went on to win Best of Breed! (Florence was also placed 3rd in the Puppy Bitch Stakes).


The following week Fernando as well as BP was Reserve Best Dog at Southern Counties and a week later again at Three Counties he was again Reserve Best Dog and also took Puppy Group 4!


The Puppy Stakes at Southern Counties was a wonderful experience with Fernando winning the dog class and Florence 4th in the bitch class. Fernando then went on to beat the winning bitch to be the Pro Plan Puppy Stakes winner for the Pastoral and Working Groups day. He later went head to head with the other daily winners to be beaten into 2nd place by a Miniature Schnauzer!


So another brilliant month for all our puppies, I know that the others outside the show ring are having a wonderful time, with Yogi now holidaying in Cornwall.


Latest News

Fernando (Desalazra Fernando JW) takes Runner-up to a Bearded Collie at the Welsh Kennel Club Puppy of the Year competition at Llandridnod Wells, 30th November 2013. He won his section of the draw under Judge Robin Searle, only to lose to the Beardie from Judge Jill Peakes section.


Well done Hannah who handled him, almost repeating her success wtih Trinny, who won the title in 2009.


An excellent end to our 'showing year' !!!

Blackpool Ch. Show

"Ford’s Desalazara Fernando, a delightful start to the day & if I had seen nothing else I would have happily have signed a certificate for him despite being just 11 months. Lovely type all through with quality but masculine head, lovely eye & expression, correct proportions throughout with correct neck, straight front, well timbered & so well conditioned, light steady mover. All he needs is to mature on. Easily BP & later PG3." Judge Andrew Brace.



Puppies First Year

Well, Carrie and Obii's pups are now a year old, time has really flown by. A busy fun filled six months in the show ring for Fernando, Florence, Shane, Poppy and Lizzie and a life of fun showing off, excitement and leisure for Yogi, Polar and Bella!

Carrie's Puppies 10 Months Old and More Success

Carrie and Obii's puppies are now 10 months old and we are so pleased with them all. Those that have left us are all enjoying fabulous lives in their new homes with several of them also enjoying excellent starts to their show careers! Bella still enjoys her trips to Doggie Day Care and looking after the little dogs and Yogi is enjoying touring the UK in his caravan, whatever the weather throws at them!


Desalazara Honey Honey (Lizzie) is enjoying life in the Czech Republic and is making an impact on their Show scene. After winning Best Junior her critique was: 9 months old typical female, great body, excellent condition, great coat, typical head with beautiful expression, strong bones, amazing movement!


Well done Bara!


Desalazara Mamma Mia (Poppy) won Best Puppy at SKC Championship Show and thus qualified for Crufts 2014.


Well done Nigel and Linda!


Fernando (Desalazara Fernando) is going from strength to strength! Continuing to take Best Puppy awards, not giving his brother Shane (Desalazara Funky Feet) nor sister Florence a look in!! Since his Best Puppy in Show at the SEPMDC, he has won Best Puppy at Working & Pastoral Breeds of Wales and also at WELKS and Best Puppy in Show at PMDC of GB Open Show and finally at Birmingham National Champ Show he took Best Puppy and went on to win Pastoral Puppy Group 3! Florence (Desalazara Dancing Queen) keeps winning Puppy Bitch only to be beaten by her brother for the top puppy award!


Their critiques from Judge Jack Bispham: Fernando, "very promising 10 month old so well made in bone & body without being overdone, liked his powerful neck & good body shape all well covered, makes the most of standing and did not disappoint on the move, just has the edge over his litter sister to win the Best Puppy."


Florence, "litter sister to Puppy Dog winner & has lots of the same qualities as her brother. Nice feminine head with expressive eyes, good overall body shape & sound quarters, so good to see on the move."


Under Puppy Group Judge Margaret Wildman her comment read: "this boy was exceptional & so beautifully grown with every part fitting nicely together. His head was stunning & in perfect ratio to body even at this age. He had dark almond shaped eyes, nice gentle slope from skull to muzzle, neat well used ears & good mouth with correct dentition & bite. He had powerful shoulders & strong boned straight front legs down to short compact feet. I liked his size, balance & how he filled his frame, in super coat & condition, showed & moved very well."


We are so proud of all our puppies!!!

Tilly Gains Her JW

Southern counties 2012

Tilly's 1st Reserve CC

Tilly Gains Her Junior Warrant


At the NEPMDC Championship Show, 21st October 2012, Tilly (Desalazara Alpine Snowbell JW) won Graduate Bitch and Post Graduate Bitch, giving her the final points she required to gain her Junior Warrant. Just as well, for having spent three months out of the ring having had a complete drop of coat, a few days later she came into season, so another show(s) missed.

Southern Counties 2012


An absolute horrid day at Southern Counties Ch Show 2012, would best be forgotten, save for the Purina Pro Plan Pup of the Year Stakes. Tilly (Desalazara Alpine Snowbell) won the Working and Pastoral Bitch class and then in the challenge with the dog, Judge Rodney Oldham gave Tilly the top honours for the day. To complete a memorable day in the final against the other day winners Tilly was runner-up to a Bedlington (who had, in previous shows, taken three 2nd places!)

Tilly's 1st Reserve CC


A wonderful warm sunny day at Bath Championship Show to celebrate our puppy Tilly (Desalazara Alpine Snowbell) winning her first Reserve CC at the age of 11 months.

She was also Best Puppy and although very tired after a long hot day, she took Pastoral Puppy Group 3. She was watched proudly by mum Trinny (Ch Gillandant Kiss and Tell at Desalazara) who earlier had pipped her daughter to the top prize by winning the Bitch CC.

Well done to our two girls!

Carrie's Puppies Have a Winning 3 months
