With the 'Rain' litter turning two in November 2019, we are glad to report that we have received great OFA results - all have tested 'excellent' for their hips and 'good' for their elbows. More details on OFA testing can be found on their website (www.ofa.org) where each dog tested is entered on to their database.

Puppies from the 'Moon' litter all went to their new homes at the beginning of May. We look forward to seeing what they can achieve with their new owners.

This has been a very challenging year for everybody with the Covid19 pandemic halting many activities and plans. CKC conformation shows were cancelled for most of the year, with us only attending one early in the spring. Some activities were able to go ahead after revision for health safety and we're glad to report that two Anwen dogs got their CKC Novice Scent titles - Luna (Anwen's Rainbow Dash) and Flynn (Ch. Anwen's Shining Star). Well done to both of them and their owners!
Here are some photos from the summer and fall.
May - we travelled down to Pomona, California for the Welsh Springer Spaniel Club of America National with Ruby, Ralph and Anna all showing in their classes.
