Liffey is a real sweetie. An extrovert nature but very gentle.

She delights in playing with her niece Flicka!


Liffey has just one Open Show BP to her credit (she was always beaten by her pesky brother, Jenson!), but she did it in style by also winning the Gundog Puppy Group!


She qualified for Crufts 2012 and won at Championship shows as a Puppy.


In May 2011, Liffey had an accident which resulted in her having an eye removed. I was devasted at the time.

The Kennel Club have granted me permission to show her and she made her return to the ring at URC Champ show under Jenny Bird (Shiredale) and was placed 2nd in Puppy Bitch. There were tears!!!


I was over the moon when Liffey was placed 2nd at Crufts 2012 in her first yearling class aged just 18 mths, qualifying her for Crufts 2013!

In 2012 she won two Yearling classes,

She has won out of Graduate & Post Graduate and was awarded the RCC at Blackpool 2013 (Click here for the video) Birmingham National 2014 & Three Counties 2016


My little Fruit Loop, who I simply adore.


In 2015 she took time out of the ring to produce her only litter, sired by ShCh Steelriver Blazin Hot at Blacktoft JW.

A bitch, Elphaba, has stayed at Hopevalley.


Liffey left us on 3rd April 2017 after a very short illness. I am devastated at the loss of my very precious girl.
