Candle in the wind

With heavy heart we announce the passing of our lovely "Candle" (Ch Farlap Candle). She was such a special girl to us, first and foremost she was the pack leader amongst the hounds, always calm and strong, never a cross word, her authority was accepted by all without discussion. Her normal calm disposition always went abit awry in the ring as she did find showing very exciting, and her lively behavior and very forward going movement was her trademark at the show, hence she was made up to a champion quite quickly as well as gaining group 3 at WELKS, and then retired from the ring to become a mother. She had one litter for us and spent the rest of her life happily on the sofa and running free in the fields, and enjoying her elevated position in the pack. She will be sadly missed by us all, and here's the last photo I took of her, just last week, enjoying  her favourite pastime of sunbathing!

Team Red

Nettle and Bella on their favourite lookout for cows and tractors!

Spring has sprung

I cant believe we are into March already.....we thought we should make the most of the sunshine and beat the grockels to the beaches, so Bella took her first trip to the seaside. She loved paddling in the rockpools but loved the dead seal a bit TOO much!! She was on a lead after that!
