En Vie was born in 2007. After a puppy and junior career where she was shown sparingly, she became a champion in three consecutive shows and then travelled to my dear friend and mentor in Holland, Jolanda Huisman of the famous du Greffier du Roi kennel. She was campaigned in Holland, winning her Dutch title quickly and going on to win groups and Best In Show at all breeds championship shows. Her most significant wins have been Best of Breed at the Amsterdam Winners Show, where she was second in the Hound group to Jilly (the Crufts BIS winning PBGV) and Best of Breed here in the UK at Crufts 2012. En Vie is now retired with Jill and Paul Moran and is busy pinching all Maclary's toys!
