THE START TO 2014 HAS BEEN VERY SAD HERE AT NOBLESHAND, HAVING TO SAY GOODBYE TO OUR LOVELY TWO GIRLS CHELSEA AND DAWN.
ON A HAPPIER NOTE WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO SHOWING OUR TWO CATHKIN KIDS, CAMERON AND CARLA AT BERMAGUI IN FEBRUARY AND ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO AN ENJOYABLE YEAR WITH THESE YOUNG DOGS.
25th February 2012
A YEAR HAS NOW GONE BY SINCE MY DOUBLE KNEE REPLACEMENT (BOTH DONE AT THE SAME TIME) AND AFTER MANY MONTHS OF EXCERCISES AND DETERMINATION I AM NOW BACK IN THE SHOWRING SHOWING OUR NEW CATHKIN PUPPY, JEMMA.
OUR FIRST SHOWS WERE THE BEGA AND SAPPHIRE COAST SHOWS AT BERMAGUI WHERE JEMMA WON TWO BABY PUPPY IN GROUP AWARDS FOR HER FIRST TIME OUT AND MY COMING BACK TO THE SHOWRING. THE WEATHER WAS NOT VERY KIND TO US AND RAINED CONSISTANTLY BUT WE STILL HAD A MOST ENJOYABLE TIME SHOWING AND CATCHING UP WITH FRIENDS AND MAKING NEW FRIENDS.
BILL IS STILL SHOWING SHERMAN AND ANGIE AND HAS GAINED A LOT OF CONFIDENCE AND SHOWING SKILLS, ENJOYING HIMSELF AND DOING VERY WELL.
WE ARE BOTH LOOKING FORWARD TO A SUCCESSFUL YEAR SHOWING OUR DOGS TOGETHER.

WE AT NOBLESHAND WISH EVERONE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A PROSPEROUS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO ALL WHO HAVE VIEWED MY WEB SITE AND GIVEN ME KIND COMMENTS ON MY SITE AND COLLIES.
WE HAVE HAD A BUSY YEAR AND AM PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT OUR BEAUTIFUL BOY CHASE HAS NOW GAINED HIS FINAL POINTS TO GIVE HIM HIS AUSTRALIAN CHAMPION TITLE. A HUGE THANK YOU TO JULIET O'MEARA OF MAVMON COLLIE KENNELS FOR ALLOWING US TO OWN THIS LOVELY BOY AS WE LOVE HIM VERY MUCH AND HE GIVES US A LOT OF PLEASURE. IT MUST HAVE BEEN A HARD DECISION FOR JULIET TO PART WITH CHASE BUT SHE KNOWS WE WILL TAKE GOOD CARE OF HIM.
UNFORTUNATELY DUE TO ME HAVING DOUBLE KNEE REPLACEMENT AT THE END OF JANUARY I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SHOW THE DOGS FOR SOME TIME BUT BILL IS TAKING OVER SHOWING OUR YOUNG BOY SHERMAN AND I AM SURE THEY ARE BOTH GOING TO HAVE A LOT OF FUN.

We had an ultrasound done on Dawn this week and I am sorry to have to dissapoint the people that were looking forward to adopting one of her pups into their family but it was not meant to be this time as she has NO PUPS.
Bill & I are very dissapointed but maybe we will have better success next year.

WE HAVE JUST RETURNED FROM MAVMON & CHELTARY KENNELS IN VICTORIA AFTER MATING OUR BEAUTIFUL DAWN (AUST CH MAVMON EBONITE DAWN). HOPEFULLY WE WILL HAVE PUPPIES IN AUGUST THIS YEAR.
