There's been quite a few birthdays recently so we thought it could be good to highlight some of them.  

Firstly congratulations to sisters Banrigh (Ch Drawing Down the Moon to Cusidh) and Creubhag (Riding the Wind with Cusidh) who were 10 years old on 7th Dec 2014. They've both been on good form recently with Creubhag even attending a show (see here for details) and Banrigh relishing retirement and her daily walks. Here are some recent photos of them this Autumn with Banrigh enjoying a sunny November walk in Milton Keynes and Creubhag apparently now enjoying the show scene.


Banrigh and Creubhag are now the oldest current Cusidhs as their Uncle "Jamie" (brother of Cusidh Coille Hallaig) died this Autumn aged 12.  

Banrigh also got a fabulous new display this Christmas marking all her achievements and our memories. Here's a photo below.

Every best wish to everyone for Christmas and we hope you all have a great 2015. 

Here are the more well behaved Cusidhs at Craigend!


Just look at these absolutely lovely puppies. They were born on 2nd Oct 2014. Their hard working Mum is Tilly (Brylach Ophelia of Sorimsway - from Charlie and Moira Spence) who is the litter sister of our own Styx (Brylach Over the Broomstick with Cusidh). Dad is Beardswood Quinlan - from Sarah and Heather Helps. The puppies have been expertly cared for by our friends, breeders Gavin and Lorna Steele, of Sorimsway Deerhounds

There are three bitch puppies available and they will be vaccinated, microchipped and liver shunt tested with four weeks free insurance. If you are interested please either contact Gavin and Lorna directly on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and 0758 000 5900 or contact Claire and she will put you in touch. 

Auntie Styx wishes them all well and looks forward to catching up with her super relatives next year.



The Deerhound Club Limited show was held in Grangemouth on 20th September. It was a real team effort and a very busy time but we were delighted that all the organisation came off and an excellent day was had. 

Clan Cusidh were out in force - even Creubhag (Riding the Wind with Cusidh) decided to move from her favoured Craigend top spots to attend her first show in many a year.

Here are the Cusidhs at Grangemouth below. Peter Grant is on the left with Ruairidh and Creubhag, Ian is next with Ronan, Claire is with Rosie, Rob with Wee Dram and Elise is with Styx. All the photos at the show were taken by Tricia Macpherson and she did an absolutely superb job. For the complete show photo gallery please click here.
