Other Boys Whose Bloodlines I Have Incorporated.
These are some of the boys who didn't actually visit the UK but who either served my bitches abroad or whose bloodlines were imported via their sons and daughters.
Nebus' daughter Liaison Luisante du Greffier du Roi was imported to Holmchappell from the Netherlands. She produced one litter and a daughter will be mated this year.
Mon Dieu Penate du Roi:
Penate was mated to my Sortie for her last litter bringing new lines into the UK.
Cherubin Danda Bohemia:
Cherubin's Grand-daughter Terre Sarcree du Greffier du Roi is one of the young bitches I have imported in recent years.
Multi.Ch.Xpreszo du Greffier du Roi:
Sacree is a daughter of this wonderful sire. Xaxo has won Best of Breed at the French Nationale d'Elevage three times, he has been Best of Breed at Crufts 2013, he has an excellent hunting certificate (brevee de chasse) and is a delightful dog to live with. My thanks to his breeder Joland Huisman and to his co-owner Marlou Konings for entrusting his sweetheart of a baby daughter to me.
I am committed to a continuation of my dedication to breeding healthy, happy Grands Bassets. To this end, a program of regular imports will continue in ongoing co-operation with my dear friends Jolanda Huisman (du Greffier du Roi - Netherlands) and Gill Clark (Plainville - UK). Together, we aim to improve the breed here in the UK, to retain true type and promote sound, healthy hounds of exemplary temperament.
Nireau du Barbillot des Maladieres:
Jolanda Huisman purchased Nireau in France and sent him to the UK to improve our stock. I used him at stud and he was father to my Holmchappell April Fool and also to H. Fitou who produced H.Cerf Courant.
