Meet the "Backroom" Boy and Girls!
Arcadia Ambler Gambler
(Sh Ch Skilleigh Tan Sandy x Arcadia Angelique)
Arnie has been only selectively shown due to other commitment's but has always done well. He loves being trimmed, groomed and shown and has always given his best for me in the ring even when it is sometimes months between shows. He is a loveable lad, who lets me know just when teatime is. Ignore him at your peril as he barks and doesn't stop till he's fed. He is a mummy's boy, constantly wanting my attention and cuddles, but not when it comes to the ladies, although he is very much the gentleman as Poppet will tell you. Arnies does like retreiving but is easily bored.
Arcadia Angelique
(Sh Ch Wardhill Whistling Miller x Cliffhill Cleopatra)
15/9/87 to 4/12/01
Gemma - litter sister to Dusty (Augustus) left us in December 2001. She missed her constant companion as we all miss them both.. Gemma had success in the show ring gaining many 1st at Ch Sh as well as her Stud Book No. 0574CA at ESS of Scotland in March '1991. Gemma had a try at working but she was too much of a lady for too much heavy toil, although she did enjoy retrieving. She has always been afraid of water, even puddles, as at 4 months old she fell in a local river in the middle of winter, cold and with quite a head of water. She managed to clamber out but developed a phobia to water even in the bath.
Arcadia Amber Flame
(Arcadia Ambler Gambler x Cliffhill Juliette)
Amber has only been shown twice as she hates the trimming, bathing and travel to shows. Being clean is not what she's about, the more dirt the better. On our usual walk there is a dyke which is always full of water and Amber goes in this a least 5 or 6 times in one walk. She has a good nose which has not been used to it's full potential yet, due to pressures of work. Hopefully in the future, we may be able to keep her still long enough to train!
