Hi I have just set up this Blog and I am completely new to this 'game' so you will have to bear with me until I get used to it LOL
To say a little about myself to begin with, I have been in Welsh Springer Spaniels since 1983 when I bought my first Welshie from Ken Spate, Delkens Perdita. I bred my first litter from another bitch that I bought, Delkens Teah, in 1985 and was lucky enough to make up the male that I kept from this litter into Ch Julita Jaunty Reveller, he gained his Show title and also his qualifier to become one of the very few Full Champions in the breed at that time. I have since bred two further Full Champions in Ch Julita Ryvanda and Ch Julita Regal Request.
I now own just two Welshies, although I did have seven at one time! These are Julita Rustic Ramble (Ramble) and Julita Raskari (Kari) my only dog for breeding that I now own. I do have her daughter Julita Renya (Enya) in partnership with Anna Popkin and I show her regularly along with her Mother, Kari. I am also lucky enough to have a wonderful friend who owns Kari's brother Julita Ranger, who has one Reserve CC and has two Open Show Best in Show awards to date, one a General Open Show and one just last weekend at the North of England WSSC Open Show - Judge Christ Campbell - a particularly wonderful day for me and for his owner, Angie Davis. The photo above is of Julita Ranger aka Dylan.
Last Sunday my Club - the South Eastern Welsh Springer Spaniel Club - held its Annual General Meeting. (I am the Hon: Secretary of this Club). Following the AGM we held a Match and our Julita Renya won Best Puppy in Match and Reserve Best In Match - so a really lovely weekend.
This weekend we go to the last Chamopionship Show of the year - the Ladies Kennel Association - at Birmingham, with three dogs, Kari, Enya and Dylan.
