1999 was the year of ‘The Book’ for me – ‘The Italian Spinone’ was published, launched and well-received worldwide.
2000 - I repeated the successful breeding of Redrue Sanday at B. x B. Quaresima of 1998, which produced my ShCh Brindisi, ShCh/IrShCh/NedCh B. Boscarelli - first show champion for Martin Wellman (Jaspins) and Green Star-winning Bricco Viole for Sue Colliety. Their sire, Moses, won his first CC/BOB at WKC – he sadly died prematurely from cancer in 2001.
2001 – We moved from Sussex to Devon! Tosca (B. Quaresima) was mated for a last litter to Moses' sire, Linda Collins' imported show champion Brody and produced Ecco di Mare (Junior Stakes winner) and Ecco D'Oro, to found kennels for Kay Holden (Italix) and Rita Allum (Macarica) - both have produced CC-winning stock and more notably, the ISCGB Club BIS-winning ShCh/AmCh I. Massimiliano.
A second Golden litter from B. Tiger Lily (Hazel) produced show-winning B. Black Jack and B. Black Eyed Susan.
