Dilys

Manordeifi Satin Doll of Koczkodan "Dilys"

1 x CC

2 x BOB, 3 x RBOB, 1 BVIS, 3 x BVIB

Dilys joined our family in November 2009 and is now seven years old.  She is the second of Delia Moores' dogs that she has entrusted to us for safekeeping and we are very grateful.

Dilys is a tri-colour Smooth Collie, having rich tan and jet black markings.  Her coat is always very shiny and soft (apart from when she's covered in mud - maybe the mudpacks help keep her coat so soft!).  Dilys is the livewire of the family, always active, very quick and very clever.  A playful and cuddly girl, Dilys is very much the tomboy, loving to rough and tumble in the garden.  She is also quite a showgirl, she is relaxed and confident and enjoys strutting her stuff in the ring as she adores being centre of attention.  We are so proud of her for gaining a Challenge Certificate in 2014 at Lancashire and Cheshire Collie Club Championship Show.  Outside of showing, Dilys has gained her Bronze Good Citizen's Award.

Dilys has a fantastic pedigree, being daughter of the wonderful Tatu (Ch Sandcastle's True Topic) and Dawn (Manordeifi Silver Dawn JW). Her maternal grandmother was Ch Silver Serenade (who was also the mother of our blue merle dog, Barney).

We were very proud of Dilys when she became a mother in May 2012, giving birth to seven lovely puppies (fathered by our dog Finn).  She was a wonderful mum, attentive and caring whilst trusting us completely in everything we wanted to do with the puppies.  She continues to adore her daughter Enza, who still lives with us and Dilys enjoys spending time with her son, Enzo when he comes to visit.  She had a second litter in August 2016 and her daughter, River (K. Serenity) lives with us whilst her son, Ripley, lives with Deb and Enzo and is co-owned by Elaine.

Enza

Koczkodan Nos Kerenza "Enza"

1 x BPIB

Born on 17th May 2012, Enza is our special little girl as she is from our first home-bred litter.

A pretty tri with a large, flashy white collar, Enza has won our hearts.  She is a real livewire, always asking to play and trying the patience of our adult dogs, although they cannot help but love her when she licks them and begs for attention.

Enza passed her Kennel Club Good Citizen's Bronze Test, completing the course with flying colours at five months old.

She has attended Ringcraft classes, learning how to behave in a show ring, although she generally wants to say hello to everyone and play!

In 2013, Enza had a good start to her show career, gaining Best Puppy Bitch and Best Puppy in Breed at the Scottish Kennel Club Championship Show, this meant that she qualified for the Smooth Collie Club's 'Puppy of the Year' 2014 competition, we are very proud of our girl.

Enza has been attending training classes at Positive Dog Training Solutions with her brother, enjoying fun agility, gaining her Silver Good Citizen's Award and also learning tricks.  Her favourite trick is rolling over.  She is now working towards her Gold Good Citizen's and has had a go at rally obedience too.  She is a much loved part of our household if somewhat of a clown!

Clara

Breckamore Bittersweet for Koczkodan "Clara"

10 x BPIB, 1 x Puppy Group 1, 1 x Puppy Group 2,

3 x BPIS, 2 x BOB, 2 x RBOB, 1 x BB

Clara joined our family at the end of January 2016 from the relatively local Breckamore kennels and we thank Ann for letting us have her.  She is a cheeky, bold two year old and a real live wire.  Clara has settled into our family very quickly, enjoying playing with Dilys, Enza and River immensely.  Finn often looks on in despair at their chaotic playtimes!

Since she arrived she has gained her Kennel Club Bronze Good Citizen's Award and highlights to her career so far include ten Best Puppy in Breed, one Puppy Group 1, one Puppy Group 2, three Best Puppy in Show, two Best of Breeds and Reserve Puppy of the Year.

Clara has an excellent pedigree, her sire is Charlie (Ch Foxearth Frappuccino) and her dam is Mia (Ch Breckamore Bridget Jones).  This also gives her close links to the rest of our dogs.  We are very excited to have this lively girl as part of our family and are looking forward to what the future may hold.

River

Koczkodan Serenity "River"

1 x BPIS, 3 x BPIB

River was born on 12th August 2016, one of a litter of six tricolour puppies from our Dilys.  River has settled in well with the rest of the dogs and loves to join in with the play and runs around after the others at every opportunity.  Her sire is Ch Foxearth Flock Master for Breckamore JW, the gorgeous Sheldon, owned by Ann French and we are very pleased that she let us use him.

River has started her show career well, with Best Puppy in Breed at Scottish Breeds Championship Show 2017, where she went on to be shortlisted in the Puppy Group.  She also won Best Puppy in Show at the Collie Association Open Show and BPIB and Reserve Best Bitch at East Anglian Collie Association Champ Show which made us very proud.
