Ch Barad Brechin Cathedral  - "Brechin"  Brechin did some nice winning in Tasmania but when the opportunity arose for her to join the Strelka Kennel in Cairns to start things for Jennifer and her team, we jumped at the chance.

Our Foundation Boys

Tuscamada Strutn My Stuf - "Dobbie" Dobbie started his time with us at Barad Kennels as a show dog but he didnt  really like the show ring so we didnt push him with this. He then went to  live with great friends in West Hobart and we saw him regularly. He produced three really lovely litters for us, including Bambi and is therefore now a Grand Dad. His third and final litter was born in February 2014. Dobbie died of pancreatitis in late December 2013, he will be missed terribly.

Ch Tunamara Titanium - "Titan" Titan is only the second male Italian Greyhound that we have purchased from another kennel and it made great sense to obtain a great little dog from mentor Chris Scott. This little boy only came early February 2014 and is loved by us all. He is a little shy but that didnt stop him gaining his Australian title the day after is first birthday from 3 months of showing, with some nice wins along the way. Titan is sire to Annie's second litter and to Emey's first litter. Titan is now retired and living on a beach on the coast, very loved and happy boy.
