Foxifayre have been Keeshond fanciers for a long time – our very first gorgeous girl Panda came into our lives in 1961, we were completely smitten and have only had one brief spell in the past 46 Years without a furry bundle to love.

Keisha left us in March 2006

Our entry into the world of showing came about when Keisha, who was to become Ch. Norkees Hot Pursuit from Foxifayre, showed promise as a puppy. She was a singleton, the only puppy born to our Bonnie (Norkees Gemma) and Bevis (Ch. Ledwell Silver Dollar) in 1992.

She was the ultimate showgirl and was awarded 10 CC’s and 5 RCC’s in her 5 year show career. Her puppies became winners also, the wonderful head can still be seen in her many descendants.

She produced 3 Champions and her name appears in numerous pedigrees, including that of our latest baby Flori (Eastkees Dare To Dream from Foxifayre) being her Great, Great Grandmother.

Flori is a welcome addition to Gina and her family and will seen in the showring towards the end of 2007. Many thanks to Sue Pattison for our lovely baby.

Our latest star is Am. Ch. Foxifayre So Debonnaire with Valindale who resides in the USA with his new owners Jean and Joshua Gauchat-Hargis. Sonny, was whisked across to California following his lovely win at Crufts in 2006, very quickly winning his Championship Crown. He has also sired 2 litters of puppies for his new owners.

Sonny followed in the footsteps of his big sister Solo (Ch. Foxifayre Solitaire with Valindale) who had any amazing year in 2004 winning 17 CC’s and making Foxifayre Top Breeders (Our dogs) that year as well as being Top Puppy in breed.

Both Solo and Sonny achieved their success through a partnership With Malcolm, Linda and David Matthews of the Valindale Kennel who showed them extensively.

Solo is now back at Foxifayre to join her mother Sophia and Aunt Bliss where it is hoped she will will produce a litter of puppies to enhance our breeding program.

Beryl has served on the Keeshond Club Committee since 2000.
