"Floyd" b: 4-11-08
Fiyero Hillbilly Rock at Bobander ex Bobander La Fille De L`Air
They say if you want to get ahead...get "a Head". We didn`t have to go far to produce yet another beautiful head and Floyd is fast becoming much appreciated because of his stunning good looks and overall soundness. He is not just a pretty face and has won consistantly as a puppy He won Top Puppy in Breed for 2009 and was awarded the coveted Alker Trophy by the BFCGB.
At Paignton he won the Pup of the Year stakes under Martin Freeman ! He has won 2 RCC`s while still very young and won the large Junior class at Crufts.
He remained unbeaten while in Junior dog.
He achieved his first CC awarded to him with BIS by Margaret Black at the BFCGB Champ show in November. He also has a total of 10 RCCs too! Competition had been fierce and that all important 2nd CC eluded us until this year at the SBFBA.....Des Jenkins awarded him the DCC & BIS....we were over the moon.
Just a couple of weeks later Specialist Lisa Welsh gave him that all important 3rd CC & BOB at WKC. At last little Floyd was a champion !!!
At the GB Club ....Ferelith Summerfield was judging Bichons for what would be her last breed appointment. Imagine our pride that she should choose Floyd for the CC....what a wonderful day.
Am Ch Risgaes Wild Bill ex Bobander Secret Ruby at Fiyero
Rocky is also featured on our home page. We are especially pleased with this boy who we were so lucky to aquire from Barbara Hart. Barbara took the opportunity to mate her Bobander Secret Ruby to Am Ch Risgaes Wild Bill while he was was over here with Pauline Johns. of 06 . This proved to be a master stroke because although Rocky had a highly successful show career winning a total of 10 RCC`s . Although his crown eluded him it has been as a sire he has excelled himself producing 2 champions for us. Rocky was Top Bichon Stud dog for 2009 *Our Dogs * competiton.

"Dylan" B. 23rd June 2001
Dylan was aquired from Carol Bowman and her daughter Caroline after a very successful mating of her bitch to Ch Bobander What Ho Bertie .
I had always admired many things about the Kynismar ancestors that appear in her pedigree and here I feel we achieved a good combination of the two lines. The judges agreed with us and Dylan became the youngest Breed champion ever in the UK.. His first CC was at South Wales, and his second at East of England with Best Of Breed and Group 4.
He was only thirteen and half months when breed specialist Eilish Banks gave him his third Challenge Certificate again with best of Breed at Welsh Kennel Club. It took just 6 weeks!
Dylan has been a most successful stud dog...producing our own Ch Bobander What a Performance.

Ch Bobander Magic In The Air ex Calypso Crazy At Bobander
Bertie was the first Champion from Michael and Cally. Cally was produced from a mating between our Kynismar Sweet Talking Guy and (Twinley bred ) Pantomime Princess bitch whose beautiful head and superb balance had impressed me so much when I first saw her. Cally herself achieved a CC and several reserves but her talent was in the breeding pen and two more champions from this mating soon followed.
Bertie was extremely successful in the ring and broke new ground being the first Bichon ever to qualify as a finalist for the PRO PLAN Pup of the YEAR stakes at Paginton.
He gained a total of 9 CC`s and 14 reserves during his super career and by producing some particularly lovely bitches for us, has been a most valuable dog for us.

It didn`t take long for us as breeders to recognise the importance of selective line breeding and how essential good conformation and true Bichon temperament was if we were to establish a successful line. We were fortunate to acquire a dog and bitch from Myra Atkins ( Kynismar) Kynismar Sweet Talking Guy from Bobander and Kynismar Annie Get Y'r Gun for Bobander and they featured significantly in our plans. Our next generation, produced" Michael", Top Puppy in the breed for 91. He went on to quickly gain his title, and was well known for his exceptional conformation, outgoing nature and for being true to breed type. His subsequent value as a sire for us has been considerable.. When mated to Calypso Crazy at Bobander ( a Guy daughter) who had won I CC& 6 RCC`s they produced three litters with a Champion in each, Cally became Top Brood Bitch two years running in `94 and `95.
