In 2005 we decided to have a litter with Zany (CH.Ebontide Nocturne) as she was taking so long to mature !
This was our first black litter and we chose Jason de la Douce Plaine as I liked the look of his offspring ?
This was our first foray into the groenendael side and we called it the Noir litter ,
We could see something special in one girl whom we kept and named Chilli , she has not let us down , She has gone on to be one of the top winning groenendaels of all time !
some of her best wins are :
Best in Show at the NVBH 2008
Best in Show at the NBSDC in 2008
RES.Best in Show at the BSDAofGB show 2008
Best in Show at the Irish BSD Speciality 2009
but the best win of all was :
Best in Show at the prestigious French Speciality in 2008
She was also Best of Breed at the Championnat de France 2008
She then gained her French Champion title with a final win at Douai,she is the first British bred groenendael to attain the French title , needless to say we are very proud breeders !
She also has a RES.CC and a CAC at specialities in Germany !
In England she has also won 6 CCs ,all except one under continental judges
Chilli agains wins the CAC at the NVBH to gain her Dutch title
At Crufts in 2013 she wins Best Veteran under Mdme Berton Sarlat while her son INT.CH.Xanova Wolf Walker wins BOB !
At our BSDA of GB CHampionship Show 2013 she is Best Veteran and also BVIS under Dyllis Knight
at the BSDA CH.Show 2015 she wins Best Veteran in Breed at 10 years old while her son Wolf Walker is CC & BOB
until 2017 Chilli took part in Discover Dogs meeting the public who want to know about the breed ? we have retired her now as it tiring her too much
She is truly a once in a lifetime dog who charms everyone with her fantastic character !
