An update now of the UK "summer" shows.

The Brylach pups by Cusidh Righ Innse Gall x Loch Maree by Brylach have been out and about enjoying the rain this summer. Styx (Brylach Over the Broomstick with Cusidh) and Tilly (Brylach Ophelia of Sorimsway - owned by Lorna and Gavin Steele) have both qualified for Crufts and have enjoyed themselves in the ring. Their sister, Brylach Olivia with owners and breeders Charlie and Moira Spence, has been doing well and won her Graduate class and then went on to Best of Breed and Hound Group 3 at the Highland Canine Association on 28th July. And Brylach Oops A Daisy was 2nd at the recent SKC show in her Puppy Bitch class. Well done girls!

Here are a couple of great photographs of Brylach Olivia at 7 months old taken at the Highland Canine Association.

Here's a few pictures of Styx (Brylach Over the Broomstick with Cusidh) learning to swim recently. A skill she's pretty much got the hang of now. First up here she is drying off.



Congratulations to Jenefer Cooper and Aureole at Chapeltower, or Toffee, as Ian called her. Toffee has just won her postgraduate class at Three Counties last weekend. She had been staying up at Craigend with the aim of having puppies with Ronan (Cusidh Homecoming). This would have linked the pedigrees back to Ardkinglas Polka and Pattie who were litter sisters and the foundation bitches of both the Chapeltower and Cusidh lines. A further link were brothers (from two litters) Chapeltower Zog and Chapeltower Zak who were Gr, Gr, Grandparents of Ronan and Aureole respectively. However, ever so dissapointedly for everyone concerned it was to not to be this time. However, it's great to see her back in the ring and doing so well. Here she is with John Francis doing a super job handling her.

The Cusidhs, especially Ronan (Cusidh Homecoming), certainly don't seem to have any problem jumping. However, Banrigh (Ch Drawing Down the Moon to Cusidh) decided that she wanted to show 5 month old Styx (Brylach Over the Broomstick with Cusidh) a thing or or too. Needless to say Styx manged this low lying log without any trouble!
