New to Cidwm - from the UK!
A couple years ago we saw an ad in the Great Pyrenees International magazine for Ch. Gallandant Leyla via Shanlimore. She is a stunning female owned by Christine and David Edwards of Shanlimore kennels. We have been raised admiring Shanlimore kennels, as there are a number of their dogs behind the original Glenire stock where are dogs are descended from.
When we saw this ad and that they planned on breeding Leyla, we contacted them immediately (in co-operation with Glenire Great Pyrenees). Christine Edwards and her husband were very kind and agreed we would be considered for a puppy.
Sadly the first breeding did not take.
Nor the second.
After two years, and a general check in on their status every six months or so, earlier this year we recoeved the response that Leyla was scheduled for an ultrasound t confirm her pregnancy.
We waited with baited breath.
The good news that she carried five puppies was very exciting.
On June 19, 2017 she delivered three bys and two girls. Over the next few months we took steps to arranged shipping of our puppy (kindly accomandied by our cousin), including arranging his import papers, figuring out how to do a wire transfer through the bank, ordering his shipping crate and having it delivered to our cousin in England, and making sure his breeder was comfortable with all our arrangements.
On September 14 2017, our treasured parcel arrived!
We are very excited to have Shanlimore Cidwm Glenire "Felipe" here at our kennel and in our hearts. He is adorable and so sweet!
Watch for news of him and his new friends (our dogs) on our Facebook feed and here!
