     This was a very carefully planned litter and as hoped for Morgan is a gorgeous strong fawn coloured young bitch, very similar in looks to her Dad. She has  oddles of personality and a very loving nature.

    Thank you so much for allowing her to come and join Team Barad Janice. Morgan will hit the show circuit in Tasmania in mid July.

    Claudia came home today and celebrated her 1st birthday. After 6 weeks back with breeder - Paula Bockman-Chato Claudia has returned to us in Tasmania. Sancia could not be happier. We want to thank both Paula and Margot - her co breeders for the love, care and work they put into Claudia during her 6 weeks in NSW.

    Sancia and Simone travelled to Adelaide for the weekend and of course we caught up with great friends Chris & Dave Scott - Tunamara Kennels. Chis was fantastic and very happy to allow Sancia to help show her Tibbies and Iggies.

    It was great to meet Chris's new US import - Am Ch Belcanto Alexander Crystald Seer (Imp USA) Alex - Sancia was chuffed to show him in the breed line up.

    Sancia also got to  show a gorgeous baby puppy Iggy - Tunamara Silver Dollar - Dollar.

    Sancia also got to handle Natebit All That Jazz - Gemma - a very sweet little girl bred by other great friend Bev Hamilton.

    Chris had with her another stunning little tibbie bitch - Tunamara Mahuikka Tsha Joy and it was all I could do to convince Sancia not to snaffle either of them to bring home!

    It was great to catch up with you Chris and with Dave - we had a ball thanks so much.

    It is with much excitement, pleasure and relief  that we announce that our boy Barad Night Ina Forest  (IID) - Foz gained his last 10 points needed  to complete his Australian Championship title.

    We would like to thank Ash Oldfield in NSW for showing this boy for us in the beginning, securing a nice Group 1 first win and a 19 point Challenge to see him well on the way. Having two brothers also working towards their titles has made things interesting for us, with Foz being the third, but by no means the least of his brothers for JLo's sensational litter to obtain his title. Thanks too must to got Ange G and Laura D for loving this boy and of course to our little pocket rocket junior handler Sancia for showing Foz at all hisTasmania shows.
