Dilys joined our family in November 2009 and is now eight 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.  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 and now several Best Veteran Awards too.  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).

Clara at 2 1/2 years old

Breckamore Bittersweet for Koczkodan "Clara"

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

3 x BPIS, 3 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, three Best of Breeds and Reserve Puppy of the Year.

In January 2018, Clara had four lovely puppies (our Finn is the sire) and has proved to be a contented, happy mother.

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, 1 x RBOB

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.  She started 2018 well with RBOB at Matlock Open Show and several other nice class placings before taking a break in the summer to have her first litter of puppies.  She has proved to be just as good a mother as her dam, Dilys.

 

Daisy at six months

Koczkodan Midnight Sun "Daisy"

  1 x RBPIS, 1 x Puppy Group 1, 1 x Puppy Group 2, 6 x BPIB, 1 x RBOB

 

Daisy was born on 6th January 2018, one of a litter of four puppies from our Clara.  Her sire is our sable & white boy, Finn and we are delighted with the puppies from this litter.  Daisy is outgoing and adventurous and loves having fun with our other dogs, particularly River who is her best friend and Dilys who is the playful 'aunt'.  Daisy has joined our other dogs in the show ring this summer, winning the Pastoral Puppy Group at Clitheroe Open Show as well as five Best Puppy in Breed awards, one Reserve Best Bitch and one Reserve Best Puppy in Show, a great start and lots of fun to be had with her in the future we hope.
