We were very kindly offered the
opportunity of owning a beautiful breeding bitch
Guzmac Miss Goldilocks
few months after she came to live with us, we decided to let Cleo have her
first litter of puppies. She was
successfully mated to 'Guzmac Above All Others'
naturally gave birth to 3 beautiful puppies, 2 bitches & 1 dog.
This was to be the first time we experienced whelping on our own, as
Cleo took us all by surprise & had her babies with no warning & luckily
with no complications.
puppies soon grew & we decided to keep the dog, &
we named him Ralph - ‘Varpek Ice Warrior’.
were fortunate to find very loving pet homes for the bitches, & we still keep in touch
& find out what
they are getting up
to! Parting with these puppies was
very difficult & a few tears were shed after they had gone. I
had to realise I couldn’t keep them all, if I was to carry on breeding &
babies - 9 week old & full of mischief!
soon became apparent that Ralph ‘Varpek Ice
Warrior’ - was ready for the show ring & at his very first show,
just one day after he was 6 months old, he won a strong puppy class & best
Pekingese puppy at Stockport Toy Dogs under an American judge Mrs Hope Burghardt. This was to be the
start of his successful show career.
- 6 month old
|A few weeks after
this show was his first championship show at Border Union where in a strong
minor puppy dog class he was awarded second prize & qualified first time
for Crufts 2000, under Andrea Livesey (Livanda).
