Being our first litter and we fell in love with them, each having their own individual character so we decided to keep them all.  So here are L-R on the bottom left photo Lilley, Billy-Bob and Lacey

On 1st July we took them to a fun dog show and after asking permission from the organisers we entered them into a few classes.  My son Kenny helped, his first time in the show ring, and the babes walked lovely.  This was good practice for travelling in the car and socialisation with other dogs and people, plus good training in the ring.  Lacey was awarded 3rd place in the puppy class handled by Ron.  They got a lovely rosette and goody bag.  Here they are at 13 weeks old.

After much thought about KC registered names we finally decided to give the babies names of places that we loved when we had visited the USA on our many holidays there.
 
Dycoshem Sedona Belle (Lilley) - named after Bell Rock in Sedona, Arizona

Dycoshem Sonoran Sunrise (Lacey) - named after the Sonora Desert, Arizona

Dycoshem Havasupai Wonder (Billy-Bob) - taken from the Havasupai native american tribe who were one of the original tribes to live in the Grand Canyon area. The Grand Canyon being one of the original Wonders of the World, we thought we'd add Wondor to his name.


At the age of 6 months we started showing our pups and to our amazement Billy-Bob and Lilley qualified for Crufts 2019 at their first championship show.

Lilley was awarded 1st in Minor Puppy bitch at the London & Provincial Collie Club.
Billy was awarded 3rd in Minor Puppy dog at the same show.


At the beginning of November at the East Kent open show Lacey was 1st in puppy class, Best Puppy (BP) and Reserve Best of Breed (RBOB) and went on to gain Puppy Group placing 4 (PPG4).

Beginning of December at the Woolwich DCS open show Lilley was 1st in puppy, Best Puppy and gained PPG2. She also got BP in the Any Variety Pastoral (AVP) class.

Then in December at the Guildford DCS open show Lilley was 1st in puppy, BP and PPG4. And at the Colchester DCS open show Lilley was 1st in Graduate, BP PPG2 and RBOB. At this show Lacey was 1st in puppy class.
