The Welsh Sheepdog, is probably, The Best Working Sheepdog in the World!
OK Guys, my boy (Pup) "Harri" is off today (Sunday 5th May 2013) to a working home in Worcestershire. I am glad that I have eventually got him a working home, as he's a natural! but I am going to be…Continue

My Hybrid Bugail Mawr Cymreig (Great Cambrian Shepherd) litter (14 in all) have now all but gone to new homes. some to working homes! which should be very interesting, Will they, or wont they work, that is the question? and if they do work, will they only guard the stock or "round up" as well? in other words will they benefit from the working instincts of both parents? (Welsh Sheepdog Dad & Pyrenean Mam) I had originally decided to keep one male (Maelgwn Siôn ap Cochyn) and one female (Maelgwn Cati merch Cochyn) from the litter but due to a slight urinary problem as I write this, I still have a second female (Maelgwn Delyth merch Cochyn) in residence. and I have also decided to sell Maelgwn Siôn ap Cochyn
Originally I feared that "Delyth" had Ectopic Ureters, (where the ureters instead of connecting to the bladder, the ureters connect to the urethra, the vagina or even the uterus.) corrective surgery can be preformed, but is a specialist operation, and the throwaway figure of 2k was banded about as to its approx cost! However on further investigation this was found not to be the case but the X-Rays did show that her bladder was a little on the small size, probably because the urine was leaking out due to her lack of control over the muscles which stop urine leaving her bladder, consequently not giving the bladder much of a reason to develop in size, or so the vet explained. anyhow we now know the best and worse case scenario. at best the drug (Propalin Syrup) will help to strengthen the muscles and give the bladder a reason to grow to something like normal size, and that the muscles will strengthen with maturity. These muscles have also often been known to strengthen after the first season. While the worst case scenario, is that this could be an ongoing problem for the rest of her life which could involve lifelong medication. however if that is the case "Propaline Syrup" is far from an expensive drug. So the bottom line is, that I am looking for a good home for her, with someone who is willing to take a chance on her. failing that she can stay at Cenel Maelgwn.
Hi Everyone, I am back..... I was a member before but have had a really poor year loosing a very close friend, and soulmate, and the business, as his son sold the property on his father's death. There was much anxiety as the new owners of the property, do not allow their tenants to have pets, but eventually It was sorted and the dogs were allowed to stay. However I have a feeling that could change at any time... The computer also went without warning, so no email, and no passwords.... Hence…Continue
I had the opportunity to visit the area around Knighton, and went round knocking on doors that fitted with the desciption of the journey I'd been given. I found Kite's dam's breeder, and there was one of her sons still there at the farm. The bitch that was Kite's granny had been stolen when heavily in pup about 4 years ago. Kit's granny was Gwerninog Tess, ref 954. The sire was unrecorded though, so there's no chance I'll be able to register Kite.
Kite's sire is Arglewyddes Lad, fully registered and working. Her dam is Tess, who was bought by a farmer as a puppy from a farm between Newtown and Knighton - nearer to Knighton. The man who bought her was offered papers, but refused them as he wasn't interested in her lineage. This bitch puppy was the last of the litter to go, and she grew into a rather short-coated, shaded sable/red - this would have been in the winter of 2007-8. I've been trying to track down her breeders, but as I…Continue
