Wishing everyone a very Happy Christmas and a successful 2014. A big Thank You as well to everyone who has helped throughout this year. Very much appreciated. 

Congratulations - Wee Dram (Cusidh Drawing Down the Sun) has won the Our Dogs Top Deerhound Puppy for 2013. Well done, what a great result.

Wee Dram was born in November last year from Cusidh Homecoming and Cusidh Perchance to Dream and he's a super boy with a lovely nature who enjoys everything including the shows that he's attended. Here's a blow by blow account below of his development this year.

Whoopee Truly Scrumptious (Cusidh Caol Muile) has now received her Stud Book number. Congratulations Truly we're ever so proud of you. Full credit goes to Alison Foote and Gordon Crossan, Truly's owners, who are doing an excellent job.

Here's Truly at Darlington Championship Show this year with Gordon where she won Limit Bitch and then with her daughter Bronte (Fintralgor Red Red Rose). 

December is another birthday month. This week it's sisters Banrigh (Ch Drawing Down the Moon to Cusidh) and Creubhag's (Riding the Wind with Cusidh) 9th Birthday. Here they are together in August this year enjoying some Scottish sunshine. Both are now retired from showing - Creubhag somewhat earlier than Banrigh due to "non-compliance" issues (a tendency to stop frequently in the ring!) - but they are both still very much enjoying themselves and keeping the youngsters in order. UPDATE - Claire has asked that it's known that Creubhag did actually manage to receive a stud book (1770C) number and produce a lovely litter of puppies. Ronan (Cusidh Homecoming) is her son. She is also now a Granny. So she's not totally thrawn honest!  

Next week it will also be Styx's (Brylach Over the Broomstick with Cusidh) 2nd Birthday. Happy Birthday girls.
