News and stud dogs

I am now doing graphite PET PORTRAITS please look on my paintings page. These are very reasonably priced from £55.00 for a graphite drawing and make wonderful presents.

Hamish (Thurness The Illusionist)This wonderful boy has now gained his first RCC, at London Cocker Cub Championship show in December 2017. He is constantly in the top placings at shows and has had some lovely wins over the last few years (2015-2016). First in his class at Crufts and shortlisted for the dog CC and he went and did it all again at the Scottish Cocker Championship show. On top of that he has his stud book number which mean he is qualified for Crufts for life and he also won his class at the big Cocker Spaniel Club show.

Grouse and Amy's daughter Enya (Thurness Shadow Dreams) who is here with me, has in 2016 qualified for Crufts next year at the Cocker Spaniel Club Championship show with a very creditable 2nd in a large yearling bitch class.

Shoogle and Haggis are waiting in the wings to begin their show career once they look presentable, at the moment they are very hairy puppies. Their sibling Nixon has in the meantime qualified for Crufts at his first championship show with his new owner Elaine Thomas who also bred their sire Claramand Masquerade at Jozelah, my thanks to Linda and John Robinson for allowing the wonderful Oscar to come to Scotland on his holidays. Bringing back some very old lines which should prove useful for future breeding .


Thurness The Illusionist ( Sh.Ch. Molkara Magician x Thurness Beautiful Dreams) Hamish is my latest show star and stud dog and is proving himself to be a real characture. Here he is as a puppy and to see him grown up please go to the stud dog page below.


Stud Dogs

Thurness the Illusionist ( Sh Ch Molkara Magician x Thurness Beautiful Dreams)

Hamish is my home bred black & tan boy who is genetically clear for both PRA & FN, he is a lovely natured dog who is available at stud to approved bitches. Put to the right bitch he should produce Black & Tan, black and gold puppies. His pedigree is available on request. He won Best Puppy In Breed at the Scottish Kennel Club Championship show in May 2014 and at Crufts 2015 he gained a very creditable 4th in his strongly contested class. He now has his stud book number and at Crufts 2016 he won his class and was short listed for the dog CC, he repeated that at the Scottish Cocker Spaniel Championship show and also won his class at the main breed Club show in 2016. He is passing his joyful nature on to his puppies and has a large fan club!

Claramand Black Grouce at Thurness (Claramand Red alert x Claramand Black Ice)

Grouce has some beautiful Claramand lines in his pedigree and also some foreign ones as well. He will fit in with most Claramand lines that are already in Scotland as he is not that close to them. He is genetically clear for both PRA & FN. He has qualified for Crufts 2013 and is a pleasure to own and live with. He is siring puppies with lovely natures in black, red, gold and Black & tan. He is now also tested clear for Gonioscopy as well as a current clear eye test certificate. Please note he is NOT available to  stud to any other breed apart from Cocker Spaniels. He contragulates Whinburn Little GRouce his daughter on her numerous wins in the show ring, a lovely natured girl.

Grouce at 2years old, proving that the best things mature like a red wine slowly but worth the wait!
