These are our Champions …
Producing such dogs gives me immense pleasure and I can honestly say that one of the best days of my life was winning the French Nationale D’Elevage with Patouche Toscane out of 255 dogs from 10 countries! Since, our dogs shown at this most important Yearly event have been consistently placed in the first 4, those being the only top awards.
In turn, Patouche Toscane became a full Champion handled in the field by Rory Major. Naturally, we showed her in France – incredibly successfully!
Ch. Patouche Toscane is 5th generation of our breeding, of which we continue to to this day, now at our 8th generation, with Toscane’s great granddaughter, Pistache.

Sh. Ch. Ivry de Keranlouan
My favourite import, Ivry de Keranlouan (left) was from the famous kennel; my foundation bitch. She was the one who helped me achieve my first award in a Spring Pointing Test. She was also BOB at Crufts in 1997 – the first year of CC’s in the breed. (Judge – Kathy Gorman).
Ch. Patouche Milord
Our most recent full Champion, handled to his full title by my daughter Jessica in 2023. Milord is so biddable that he has helped teach my daughter so much… Milord is such a softie, but a classy and passionate worker in the field.
Ch. Lorca de Keranlouan
Soon to be followed in her footsteps by her son, Lorca de Keranlouan (above), who was to become my first Full Champion. Lorca, a very talented dog by the famous Ebert de Keranlouan, he taught me everything…
