Gee (Ch. Grasilva Gwendoline Mary), the top-winning daughter of our Raider, was safely delivered of a litter of three puppies by our Kobi (SBIS Am Grand Ch & Can Ch Kamgaard Kut Above). Congratulations to the breeder, Bryony Gray. Interest in a litter with such a fabulous pedigree was intense, as can be imagined, and all three of the puppies will be debuting in the ring in the autumn of 2016.
We are so proud of the quality of the young offspring of our co-owned Kamgaard imports and look forward to competing with some of them in the years to come. Many thanks for entrusting both Kobi and Siri to us, Maggie and Sally, and making all this possible.

Kobi (SBIS Am Grand Ch & Can Ch Kamgaard Kut Above) was Best Dog at Three Counties under breed specialist Marjorie Macgregor.
We finished a very enjoyable weekend with a two-day visit to assess Siri's litter at Grasilva, who were six-weeks old. We were particularly taken with young Mr Blue.

....twice in fact! Kobi (SBIS Am Grand Ch & Can Ch Kamgaard Kut Above) sired his first UK litter in March. The litter was born at the home of the Ellahyde Norwegian Elkhounds. We look forward to seeing some of this litter in the ring later in the year.
In April, the lovely import, Siri (Am Ch Kamgaard Kiamesha), safely delivered her first litter at Grasilva. Bryony and I feel honoured to have been given the opportunity of using the very beautiful Rock (Am Ch Horizon Rock Solid), whom we had seen go Winners Dog and Best of Winners at the NEAA Specialty in Boston in April 2014. We believe that this linebred litter will enhance and enrich the tiny UK gene pool. We can't wait for some of this litter to also make their debut in the ring.
The ring is going to be an interesting (and competitive) place in the autumn!
