Here’s Lexi at seven months.














This handsome chap is Coda, litter-brother to Lexi (above), Sh Ch Canigou Happy Ending and Sh Ch Canigou Storytime at Withiflor, the top-winning golden bitch in the breed.  He now lives with Jess Evans in Shrewsbury.

Canigou Grace and Favour (Betty) was sent out to Norway in whelp to Sh Ch Canigou Rock Star. Here she is, heavy in whelp and looking very contented for her new owner Kristin Handeland, before she produced a litter of 4 blacks and 4 black and tans.

Below are pictures of a couple of pups from Betty’s second litter; Claudette Yes Indeed (Red) and Claudette Yes Please (Black).
