Mariglen Nightwish for Walshaw, aka Quincy went to his first show with his mum Jane Tucker. Southampton open show and was BPIB and gundog puppy group three. Not bad for six months four days.

So the shows are starting up at last.  Sixteen months since we were able to show our dogs.



So here we are waiting for the shows to start up again.  Sh Ch Mariglen Audi and Mariglen Royal Flame have been busy through the past year producing some lovely “ socially distanced, haha” puppies and we look forward to seeing some of them in the show ring in the coming months.



Today Eva, Mariglen Another Blonde crossed the Rainbow Bridge to join her mum Sh Ch Mariglen Flaming Colours, dad Sh Ch Mariglen Pengtsson’s Legacy and brother Sh Ch Mariglen Blue Flame. Dam of Mariglen Royal Flame she leaves a legacy of grandchildren and great grandchildren. Eva was thirteen and a half and has left a gaping hole in the heart of her mum Brenda. RIP lovely girl.
