Washakie Texas Ranger

After meeting Karen Goff of the famous Washakie Dalmatians
I fell in love with a gorgeous liver spotted boy, Tex.

He became my first official show dog., Washakie Texas Ranger.

He was first and foremost a much loved family pet and my founding stud dog.

Buffrey Bellena

Two years later I visited Betty and Jo Neath of the famous Buffrey Dalmatians and came home with Buffrey Bellena, Ellie.

What a character she was, litter sister to the breed record holder Buffrey Arabelle and Buffrey Ysebelle.

She produced some amazing puppies and although never reaching the dizzy heights of her litter sisters in the show ring she was a fabulous brood bitch.

Champion Tumbril Texasrose

I had my first litter from Tex and Ellie and kept a lovely puppy and she became my first home bred show bitch.

Champion Tumbril Texasrose, Sky.

Champion Tumbril Texas Tribute

I went on to breed Sky and although I wanted a bitch puppy, I fell in love with a black spotted boy who became my next home bred champion, Champion Tumbril Texas Tribute, Hector.


He won many shows and best in shows etc but when we were visiting Spain he became only the second dalmatian in 84 years to win group 9 at the Madrid Champion Dog Show FCI.


He sired many champions.


He passed away at the age of 12 half years and although I missed having a big dog I just couldn’t bring myself to attempt to replace him…

Radamantino Simone

I imported my first bolognese Radamantino Simone from Maria Friggi, the Radamantino Kennel in todi in Italy.

I learned how to groom and show a toy dog.

I went on to import several more and bred many top winning Bolognese including Tumbril Tantrums and Tiaras who won best puppy bolognese at crufts and many best of breeds.


Tumbril Top Totti went to live in France and became an international champion.
