THE START WITH DOGS
Then we do the dishes!
and after that...a nap!
I breed 1 or 2 litters a year in order to keep something for myself to bring on in the show ring. We now have 6 Border Terriers at home, and they all live in with us.
They include Saffy, Ch.Fehmarn Magic Lantern JW (Tag) who was also top male in the UK in 2004, Fehmarn Free Ranger (Barley) who has her stud book number, F.Lochside Love(Rennie), F.Reap the Harvest (Finley) who has his stud book number and F.Kiss n Kuddle (Cimmie).
Fehmarn Kiss n Run (who now lives with friends) was mated to Ch.Otterkin Blue Bayou Conundrum, and produced a wonderful litter which includes Int.Ch./Fin/Su and Lt.Ch Fehmarn King Creole, Fin.Ch.Fehmarn Huckleberry Fin JW and Fehmarn Mint Julep who has produced some superb pups.
All our dogs are consistently placed in championship show level, and in my opinion, are a good representation of the the breed, but then I would say that wouldn't I?!!!
Having been renovating a 350 year old cottage for the past 7 years, we are now running a B&B where dogs are welcomed.
Being located on the side of a mountain in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty overlooking the Vale of Clwyd, the Snowdonia Mountain range and coast, we are ideally located for walkers, being a stones throw off the famous Offa's Dyke path, approximately 200 km walk from Prestatyn in North Wales, to Chepstow in the South.
The lounge and quite a view!
There are numerous places of interest in close proximity, Denbigh, Conwy, Rhuddlan and Caernarfon Castles (and many others), National Trust properties like Penrhyn Castle, Erddig Hall, Tatton Park to name a few. The biggest and best zoo in Europe in Chester Zoo, Knowsley Safari Park and the beautiful Victorian seaside resort of Llandudno.
3 miles away we have the Vale of Clwyd Gliding Club, all types of watersports including whitewater rafting at our National centre in Bala, fishing (sea, river and farmed) and local swimming pools. There are also numerous birds of prey centres and horse riding facilities.
Why not bring your own horse on holiday and experience the excellent and numerous bridle paths just off our property.
If you bring your dog on holiday with you and need to leave him/her behind for the day to go and visit dog free attractions, then they can stay in our very large 8 run kennel block, where we can look after them for you. Each run has a large indoor and covered outdoor area.
We are Christians, and should you wish help in finding a church to visit, we would be only too glad to help you find one to suit. Our church is an evangelical free church with lively worship, solid biblical teaching and a warm welcome is extended to all.
