Koczkodan Serenity "River"

1 x BPIS, 3 x BPIB, 2 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. 2019 will see her back in the show ring, which she enjoys so much.
