We were very kindly offered the opportunity of owning a beautiful breeding bitch Guzmac Miss Goldilocks                                      

 

A 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.

The puppies soon grew & we decided to keep the dog, & we named him Ralph - ‘Varpek Ice Warrior’.

 

We 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 & exhibiting!

Pekingese babies - 9 week old & full of mischief!

It 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.

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).
