"Latest Show Update"


It seems quite amazing that we are

in the last quarter of 2012 already

with only 3 Shows left to attend

in 2012.


On one of the few lovely sunny days in

September we attended Richmond

Championship Show and were delighted

to be awarded 1st Junior Dog with Cameron.

The Reserve Dog CC with Archie and the

Bitch CC with Belle.


Archie continued his winning ways at

West of England Corgi Association in October

 and to our delight he was awarded the

Dog CC Best of Breed and ultimately


a great day!!!


After having a puncture on the

way to East of England and arriving just in time for

Judging with "Archie" and

"Ellie" ,Ch Penliath Ice 'N' Slice, we were delighted

when "Archie" was awarded the Reserve CC and "Ellie"

the Bitch CC and Best of Breed after being absent

from the ring for nearly 2 years.


We only attended Windsor Show in July

and "Archie"  Ch Penliath Belts 'N' Braces was

the only one to represent our Kennel there

he went on to win the Open Dog

Class and the Reserve CC.


August has also been a quiet month for us

as we only attended Bournemouth. 

"Archie" continued his winning

ways and delighted us by taking the Dog CC again

and Best of Breed.  "Cameron" Penliath Vanilla Ice

won his first Junior Class. 




"What a Day"



When Nicki and I arrived at Three Counties

Showground at 8am on Saturday

9th June 2012 we could never have envisaged

what an incredible day we would have.


"Cameron" Penliath Vanilla Ice was attending

his final Puppy Class.  He went on to take

Best Puppy in Breed and Puppy Group 1.


"Archie"  Ch. Penliath Belts 'N' Braces won the

age of 9 years won the Open Class and was awarded

the Bitch CC and Best of Breed over her son "Archie". 

"Roxy" Ch Penliath Billie Jean had to stand second

in the Open Class only to be beaten by her Mum.

show ring in 2012 at Penliath

after a very sad beginning to the year .

We sadly lost our beloved

"Austin" Ch Penarlton Cast No Shadow

and dear "Lauren" Penliath Double Exposure

The third quarter of 2011 has been an emotional

rollercoaster for Nicki and I.


On Thursday 4th August 2011 we had to say

goodbye to our beloved "Alice" just 17 days

short of her 14th Birthday.  This was a day that Nicki

and I dreaded.  Alice was a quite remarkable Corgi

in many ways, from the minute she was born she

appeared to know she was going to be special.  She

excelled in the showring beyond our wildest dreams

 but most of all she was just our wonderful girl.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the

many Judges and enthusiasts around the World

that have appreciated her qualities over the years.

We would also sincerely thank everyone for all the

wonderful messages we received after losing Alice.





Early in June we also lost our beloved Penliath Flame

Dancer "Portia" , Mother to "Reggie" Ch Penliath Bean Add. 

Portia was one of those Corgis that was always full of life

and lived every day to the full, she is sadly missed.



The final few months of 2011 have had

there many highs and lows here at Penliath.

Sadly we also lost dear "Pru" Ashbarton

Spring Song at Penliath and "Mazey" Penliath

Jubilee Dancer.  To loose four of our

wonderful girls in one year has been

so hard for us to come to terms with.






To our delight at Windsor Championship show in 2010

Penliath Ice 'N' Slice gained her 3rd and crowning CC
to become UK Ch. Penliath Ice 'N' Slice
"Ellie" has had a busy year as she produced
her second and final litter of 6 lovely babies at the
end of November to "Brett"
Ch. Carterhall American Heritage For Penliath proving
herself in the show ring and the whelping box.  Her
lovely son "Arthur" Penliath With A Twist continues
his winning ways and we look forward to introducing
further offspring from "Ellie" into the ring in 2011.
"Amy" Int. Eng. Dutch & Lux Ch. Penliath Fatal
Attraction was only lightly shown in 2010
but delighted us when she was
awarded the Bitch CC and Best of Breed
at Bournemouth Championship Show.
"Amy's" Children by Ch Pemcader Belroyd Zeus
made their debut in 2010 and between "Roxy",
Penliath Billie Jean and "Belle",
Penliath Dirty Diana gained many Best Puppy
awards and the admiration of many Judges.  We
are looking forward to campaigning both these bitches
as adults in 2011.
