Hips 3,3(6) Elbows 1/2, Clear Eye and Heart Cert.


Our beautiful Bridie comes from the renowned Kaparla Kennels in Tasmania, we are very grateful to Heather Morrison  for entrusting us with her.

Bridie  has  developed into a lovely bitch with classic English looks. With  limited showing has been very successful with  two Puppy In Show, and at 14 months  BEST IN SHOW  at Vic GRC Open Parade.

Bridie produced a lovely litter to our Archie in October 2002, of which we kept Kelsey (C. Voulez Vous). Now she is  back in coat, Bridie recently crossed the Bass straight and is being successfully campaigned in Tasmania by her Breeder, Heather Morrison. She has collected bitch CC or Res CC & a RUIG at most of the shows she has attended with Heather. She gained her title in November with a BOB at Huon Agricultural Society - Judge Miss A Cowie (NSW)

Bridie has now been retired from show and maternal duties and is enjoying her retirement with Jo and Digby Park. (see photo below)

It is with great sadness that they informed me that Bridie passed away in her sleep, at age 12. RIP beautiful girl.
