Spider was my very first Briard and he taught me so much about the breed. His dam was the famous Ch Westwold Butterfly and I was honoured that Christine Cherington used to let her come and stay with me sometimes. Sadly Spider's life was not long enough.
Heike came to us shortly after Spider died. Heike was wonderful as a companion and as a show dog. She showed me new heights and was my first champion in any breed.
Crumpet was so named because she was intended to be a "bit of crumpet" for Sparky. Crumpet was shown as a puppy and did very well indeed. Sadly a personality clash developed between Crumpet and Hattie and so Crumpet returned to her breeders Jan & Gordon Rual where she has blessed them with a few litters of puppies.
Voodoo graced us with her presence for a while and then moved on to live with Judy and her family where she activley enjoys obedience work.

Bred by Florence Fahey and Fr Joe Shire in Limerick, Fanta had a famous sire in Ch/Ir Ch Saxonsprings Tradition.
In April 2000 she started her show career with Allan handling her and they had great fun and lots of rosettes.
Having been smitten with Disney we just had to have a second Lhasa and approached Madeleine Lewis who agreed to let us have a puppy. We had thought it unlikely to find another Lhasa with such a big character as Disney had, but Tinker is just as barmy.
This little gold "tomboy" grew up to be a beautiful girl.
At the 1998 shows she performed very well, qualifying for Crufts on several occasions and with many Open show BPIB, BOB and group placings to her credit. She was entered for Crufts 1999 but her coat was not in top condition so she did not appear there. She spent 1999 and 2000 window shopping for a new party dress but never found anything that she liked.
In the meantime she had her wish and was a mother to three healthy bitch puppies born in 2000 (sire Shardlow Hakuna Matata) and 3 bitch /two dog puppies born December 2001, (sire Ch Kutani Reckless).
Taylor spent a few months with us being shown in UK. He was born in Ireland, bred by Florence Fahey and Fr Joe Shire. We won a RCC with Taylor at the LAC CHampionship show.
We bred our first litter of Lhasa Apso puppies in December 1998, from our foundation bitch Bentarnsa Ebony'N Ivory at Shardlow (Imp)(IKC), otherwise known as "Disney". She was mated to Kutani Soldier Soldier who later became a champion. From this litter we kept a male, Shardlow Hakuna Matata whose pet name is "Buzz". Also in the litter were Shardlow Tickle the Ivories (Yetti), Mango, and Bessie.
Our second litter was born in June 2000, once again to "Disney" and Champion Kutani Soldier Soldier. The male that we would have kept went to our friend Kurt Espeland in Norway. This boy, Shardlow Born to be Wild, is known as "Harley" to his friends. He is a Champion in many countries.

|Margaret Springett of the Pawprints affix shows a dog from this litter - Shardlow Stand and Deliver to Pawprints, affectionately known as Turpin. These photos show Turpin as a baby, an adolescent and as an adult.|
|The only bitch in this litter was Shardlow Candle in the Wind (Mollie).|
Our third litter came from "Tinkerbell" - Deelyane Dish of the Day at Shardlow, mated to our own Shardlow Hakuna Matata. From this litter, born in December 2000 we kept Shardlow Raindrops on Roses - "Smartie". Also in this litter was Shardlow Utterly Butterly (Daisy) and Shardlow Fortune Cookie (Pippin).
|This is Daisy at nine weeks old.||and Pippin at nine weeks old.|
A year later, in December 2001, "Tinkerbell" produced a litter to Kutani Reckless, who became a champion in 2003. In this litter there were two boys and three girls.
|We initially kept a boy and a girl: Shardlow Sultan of Swing and Shardlow Wind in the Willow respectively. For their sins they are known as "Woody" and "Willow".|
The other boy was Shardlow Amaretto (Almond) and the girls were Shardlow Twinkle Twinkle (Darcey) and Shardlow ??? (Misty).
|Darcey is pictured here after her first bath, ready to go to her new home.|
In March 2002 we bred our first, and last(!), litter of Irish Wolfhounds. Nutstown Celtic Flame for Shardlow "Enya" was mated to Champion Fearnhead Apollo at Baronglen - "Callum". The puppies were named Shardlow Celtic Pure Genius (Guinness), Shardlow Celtic Legend (Tyler), Shardlow Starlight Express (Star), Shardlow Kisses the Blarney (Aine) and our own Shardlow Celtic Ice on Fire ("Minnie"). Some of this litter are being shown. Photos of this litter can be viewed at email@example.com
November 2002 our imported bitch Panaphia's Midnight Flame for Shardlow gave birth to six puppies, five blacks and one grey. The sire was Champion Avonbourne All Spice. Two of these remain at Shardlow - Shardlow Party Popper and Shardlow Ragtaggle Gypsy..
January 2003, and Disney had a litter but was unfortunately taken very ill, the pups needing hand-rearing. Lou Hayward came to our rescue and raised Shardlow Tiger Lily (Lily) and Shardlow Tiggerific (Tigger). Meanwhile, Smartie (Shardlow Raindrops on Roses) was busy with her own litter of five pups.
|Rosie (Shardlow Coming Up Roses) is pictured here in her home. She is adored by her owner, Hayley Western.|
