Emma and Hardy = Five Beautiful Babies






























This is the much aniticpated litter combining Ch. Foxfair Impetuous, RN, with our young
Ch. Vandaban Wessex, English Import. Both have had wonderful show careers with Emma taking RWB at the KCA national specialty and Hardy finishing his championship very quickly
with 3 five point majors. The combination of the type, substance and soundness with excellent temperament that is present is both parents makes us look forward to these puppies with great anticipation.

Puppies are doing very well and are now beginning to eat solid food very greedily!! Hardy of course is a proud Dad, but we have to say that he has not been much help, leaving Emma and Jeannie and her helper Debbie Hodges to do all the work, while he relaxes!

Big Baby Boy "BB" Four Weeks Old

NEVER SAY NEVER

Okay, so I always say, I don't post pictures of really little baby puppies. But you can always have an exception, right?

Gerry Brewer sent me this and it was just tooo cute to resist, so here it is. This is one of the three Andy x Gabby babies. They continue to be very bloomy, and err well - fat! I might be able to stop and see him on Tuesday, we will see.

Don't know about the names for these guys yet, do you have any suggestions? Maybe knights of the roundtable, Lancelot, Sir Gwain, etc. We do have to think of something, since we revoked Mary's naming privleges some time ago when she got into the "exotic" realm.

Meet Julyn De Jure - Hardy's English Dad


















Julyn De Jure

Sire of Am. Ch. Vandaban Wessex
At 8 weeks, 8 months and 8 years

We have been asked for pictures of Hardy's relatives and previously posted a picture of his grandmother Julyn Silver Nutmeg. Here are some pictures of his sire, Julyn De Jure. He was not shown extensively in the UK and so did not finish his championship. However, he has sired some exceptional puppies including our Hardy. He still lives happily with his breeder Hazel Hodgkinson.

Four New Champions In 2006

Ch. Vandaban Wessex Eng. Imp.
Four New Champions This Year At Foxfair

We don't have all of their pictures yet, but we have three new champions at Foxfair!! You already heard about
"Hardy" Champion Vandaban Wessex, Eng. Imp. our boy that we imported from England.

Well, he was bred to "Emma", just after she became Ch. Foxfair Impetuous, RN. Emma put a very nice spin on her show career by going Reserve Winners Bitch at the KCA National Specialty in Columbus, Ohio and then also finishing her rally title this year. Not only is she beautiful but smart. Hardy x Emma babies are due November 9th.

Then just two weeks ago Sally Carr and Doug Kepp's dog Scooter was finished by Sally's daughter Melissa. Scooter is a much loved dog and he is now Ch. Foxfair Let It Ride.
Sally says that being a champion has completely gone to his head and she has had remind him that he is a champion and not a prince! As far as we can tell the only thing keeping him humble is his mother Zarya.

The finale came this weekend at the Delaware Kennel Club show in Ohio, when our beautiful Valentina finished her Championship on Saturday, she went Best of Winners and Best of Opposite and repeated the Best of Opposite on Sunday when she was moved up to Champion. She is now Ch. Foxfair Valentina. Valentina is home now enjoying herself and reminding Ryan and I that she has particular tastes and needs. She likes to go out with one or two special friends. She does not like to get dirty or get her feet wet. She likes chewies but not hard bones. She does not like empty dishes left in her crate, and she does like some meat on her dog food. And one more thing, what was it? Oh, she does not like a pea under her mattress!

Some of you have asked about Hardy pictured above. Our plans were to show him through the end of the year, however, he had plans to change coat! So, we will be bringing him out at selected shows in the spring.
