Bear's fabulous head, February 2010

Bear was bred by my good friends Chris and Jo Cavanagh in Australia and spent the first couple of months of his life being watched over by Billy (Darian Dauntless) exported by me to Pawtails in 2006.

Having seen both Bear's mother and her previous litters grow from puppyhood via photos, and admiring his sire Harvey, I had an inkling Bear might be a special boy and I wasn't the only one to think so. The result was that he travelled from Australia via his quarantine with Paul and Nid Schevenels in Belgium and is now very happily residing at Borderclan with his 'main mum' Hils.

Originally called Teddy in Australia, after my own Teddy (Darian Darqfire), Bear's name was shortened to Teds but he's more commonly called Bear here to avoid confusion in the Darian household!

Bear qualified for Crufts at his show debut in February 2009, ably piloted round the ring by Carolyn Ward and Hils has also handled our boy to BOB at Open Show level. We've watched him go from strength to strength and in January 2010 we were thrilled when he won his first Limit class at Manchester Ch Show, thus gaining his KC stud book number & qualifying for Crufts for life.

A week later, under Breed Specialist Helena Hutchings, Bear took BIS at Southern BCC's Open Show and then followed up with a super Mid Limit win at his first Crufts. What a fabulous start to the year! All this and a first litter too, out of my Folly (Darian Hearts On Fire). A bitch pup has gone to live with her daddy and is co-owned by myself & Hils. You can visit Jess (Darian Eskimo Jive with Triplewitch) on her own page and see the rest of the litter in the Puppy section.
