Summer litter confirmed

We are excited to have confirmation that Huncut is in whelp to Story, puppies are due mid-August. This will be Huncut’s final litter and Story’s first. We are very much looking forward to their arrival, it’s been a while since we had puppies at Lanokk, and what a fabulous pairing this is. We’re busy making plans to give these puppies the best start in life before they head off to their new homes, and how great that it’s a summer litter.

Kefir’s first CC

At Bath Championship Show, Kefir delighted us by winning Limit Bitch and the Bitch Challenge Certificate under Editha Newton. This is her first CC, having already won two Reserve CCs. And just a few days later she went Best NSC Gundog and Group 2 under Colin Woodward at Staffordshire & Birmingham Agricultural Society’s two-day open show. A fantastic gundog entry at this show, such a shame it rained nearly all day!

Hip hip hooray for Story!

We were delighted to receive the news that Story has been hip scored at 3/4 by the BVA, which is an excellent, low score for the breed. We have also received UK confirmation of his HUU Clear status.

Story, 13 months. Hips 3/4, HUU Clear.

Crufts 2018

Lovely day out at Crufts 2018 with Kefir and Story. Such a busy show and they were so well behaved and gained many new admirers. Kefir was awarded 2nd in Limit and Story was an absolute star at his first Crufts, winning 1st in Puppy, 1st in Junior and Best Puppy Dog. So proud of them both. Our breed judge was David Alcorn.

Group 2 for Kefir

I enjoyed a day out at Caernarfon with Kefir at the end of February, where she won Best of Breed and Group 2 under Alastair Moss.

Super start for Story

Story has had a super start to his show career, and thoroughly enjoyed himself at the same time. His first open show was Llandudno, where under Harry Nelson he won Best of Breed, Best Puppy in Breed, Puppy Group 2 as well as being shortlisted to the final six of a large adult gundog group.

His first championship show was Midland Counties, where he won a lovely Minor Puppy Dog class under Tom Graham.


Kefir wins another gundog group

We had a super day out at Merioneth open show on 23 August, such a beautiful location. Story came along to socialise and made lots of new friends. Kefir was an absolute star and showed so well to win Best of Breed and the Gundog Group under Dianne Rourke-Knights, who said she was stunning and had made her long journey worthwhile!

Welcome to Story

We have an exciting new addition at Lanokk, Zoldmali Story has joined us from Hungary, and what a super young man he is. We feel very fortunate to have been offered the opportunity to have him by his breeder Zsofi Miczek. A lovely chunky puppy, Story has a gorgeous head and expression to die for. He is so friendly and laid back and settled in with the other dogs in no time at all. He has French parentage, his sire is Lascard De La Lande De Bourberouge and his dam is Henna Du Domaine Saint Hubert. Photos below taken at 15 weeks on his first full day with us.

Kefir continues her winning ways

I had a busy couple of days showing Kefir on the first weekend in May. At The National on the Friday, she won her fourth consecutive championship show Post Graduate class of the year under Richard Stafford JP. The following day at Anglesey under Colin Woodward, Kefir went Best NSC Gundog then went on to win another Gundog Group. We were given some fabulous rosettes and a lovely group winner’s embroidered towel. So proud of this young lady!

Crufts 2017

A very enjoyable and rather long day at Crufts on 11 March saw Kefir, aged 17 months, winning a Post Graduate Bitch class of nine. So proud of how she behaved and performed in front of a large audience, especially as we were in the ring so late. Also delighted that Ann Moss’s Ewtor Nobody Does It Better (Jimmy), sired by our Ostor, was awarded Best Puppy in Breed. This is the second year running that Ostor has sired the BPIB, last year it went to Lanokk Violeska, bred by us. Thanks to our judge this year, breed specialist, Peter Harper.

Well done Kefir!
