I was brought up with dogs and started showing Afghan Hounds in the early seventies with the KEVOCKLEA affix. My desire to show something special drove me to find a Silver Blue Brindle dog and Jorchants Kellei of Kevocklea came to stay. He was the first of his colour to come to Scotland and we had a lot of fun together winning 5 BIS award at Open shows 1 Challenge Certificate with Best of Breed and 2 Reserve Challenge Certificates. He was a dominant sire and had many winning progeny including the 1977 Crufts Best Puppy Dog the silver blue brindle KEVOCKLEA HIGHLIGHTS.
The next 15 years were taken up with raising children and the family dogs were Jack Russell Terriers which we took to hunt and terrier shows. The next step was to either get involved with Parson Russells, as they were about to become recognised by the kennel club, or become involved with dachshunds. We chose to have Miniature Wire Haired Dachshund.
We now live in the beautiful village of Roslin, Midlothian, Scotland and have a small kennel of Miniature Wire Haired and Miniature Smooth Haired dachshunds. Here I am striving to breed dogs that conform to the breed standard and are fit for function. They are outgoing with sound temperaments and are to the best of our knowledge, free from any hereditary defects. All our dogs have the relevant health checks.
