We have both been lucky enough to have dogs as part of our family all our lives. We met some 30+ years ago when we were founder members of a local Falconry Club. At that time we both flew raptors and had much in common & I had a GSP which I worked when flying a goshawk.

Years passed by with more animals joining us including more raptors, dogs, parrots & marmosets etc.

In 2001 we became involved with Scottish Deerhounds and were privelaged to obtain our first from the well known Gentom kennels. We showed Wilf  gaining our first ever CC with him at the houndshow. During our time together we have also kept and bred a number of exotic animals including Pygmy & Cotton Eared Marmosets & a variety of parrots, cockatoos, macaw & tortoises

We were very lucky to obtain our first whippet from Molly Head (Demerlay) and that was the beginning of our love afair with this breed and now have 6 beautiful Demerlay Whippets plus a Demerlay Norfolk Terrier.

The Houndshow must be a lucky show for us as Frankie (Ch Demerlay Regal Renown at Brockfield JW) gained his first RCC their in 2010 and the following year in 2011 gained his first CC where he then went on to win Reserve Best in Show under Mr Andrew Brace. A wonderful day to remember with amazing support from fellow whippeteers. Frankie went on to become a champion, a dream come true.

As photographers we love to take images of all our animals and will endeavour to upload new images on a regular basis. We hope you enjoy viewing them.
