By 1980 we felt ready to have our first litter and Rosie was mated to Davealex I Own Him. We were so thrilled with our first litter we kept a dog and a bitch Breaksea Painted Lady and Breaksea Black Satyr they both lived long lives eventually leaving us at nearly 17 years of age. Here they are pictured below together at age 6 months at their first show. Followed by a photo of Sooty aged 4.
A few months later Dolly had her first litter, also to Davealex I Own Him. From this litter we kept Fred (Breaksea Dark Star), Fred truly put us on the road to showing thoroughly enjoying it and eventually winning our first Reserve CC. Fred in his middle years was also an excellent therapy dog.
In 1982 Dolly was mated again to Jed, she had three puppies we kept two Noah and Nellie (Breaksea Alchemist and Breaksea Brussels Lace)
Below is a photo of Noah with Kelly
(both November 1983 - June 1998)
