Congratulations to breeder David Lyon from Inverness whose bitch Kessock Ema has just had a litter of pups born 3rd July 2010. Our Cusidh Righ Innse Gall is the sire and this is his first litter. Kessock Ema is from Greystiel Loch Ashie x Tartraven Papa Stronsay and this mating links the pedigrees back via Glantanmoor Gairloch Greystiel who was the brother of Righ's Gt, Gt, Gt Grandfather Ch Glantanmoor Ga'ick Greystiel.

 

The youngsters did well at Border Union 2010 with Cusidh Gaidhealtachd winning Puppy Dog and Best Puppy. Cusidh Righ Innse Gall won Postgraduate Dog and his sisters Cusidh Perchance to Dream and Cusidh Caol Muile were placed second and fourth in Novice  respectively.

Maggie (Cusidh Eilid) though decided it was far too hot! Thanks to Mr and Mrs Crossan for this great photo and help at the show.

For years our winning team and/or brace has been sisters Banrigh, Creubhag and Kee Kee. However, the breed show 2010 saw the debut performance of a new Team Cusidh and Banrigh has been joined by her niece and nephew. Here they are pictured from left to right Rashie (Cusidh Perchance to Dream), Righ (Cusidh Righ Innse Gall) and Banrigh (Ch Drawing Down the Moon to Cusidh). Click here to see Team results.

There's been a lot of news lately about Champion Banrigh and Creubhag so we thought it was about time we introduced their 'secret sister'. This is Cusidh Kusti Bok (or Good luck). Her pet name is Heather and she lives on croft near Huntly with Balach, her half brother, and Annie and Derek. Here she is mothering a Bedlington cross pup which is not hers of course!
