In the 80's we were fortunate to be able to breed several litters and the first was the 'D' litter in 1980 which was a combination of Jindina, and using Ch. Monroes Zebedee again with a Zelda daughter.
This dog produced beautiful type and soundness in his puppies.
From this litter we kept Ch Grauhund Deyarna. Tawnee was a multiple Group and In Show winner.
1982 Jindi was bred to Ch. Griswold Colbran a Sydney dog and produced one champion
Ch. Grauhund Free'n'easy owned by Janet & Peter Krom.
1983 Tawnee was bred to Ch. Greymar Maximillan. Only 3 dogs in this litter, which produced one champion, Ch. Grauhund Ghostryder owned by Debra Howell - Breogan N.S.W.
1985 Tawnee was bred to Amer./Aust. Ch. Deerpaths Charlemagne (Imp USA) and produced one puppy a bitch -
Ch. Grauhund It'n'abit (Tia).
She was aptly named as she thought she was "it 'n' abit". She was a RunnerUp to Best in Show winner and multiple Best in Group Winner (Group 1), she produced 10 champions from three litters including the famous (AI) "N" litter.
1988 Tia was bred to Ch. Lindridge Wee Jasper a son of Deerpaths Charlemagne. This proved to be an outstanding combination.
3 Champions were produced -
Ch. Grauhund Luv'n the Rocks
Who was a multiple Best in Group (Group1) and in Show winner who excelled in her free-flowing movement.
She lived with Ann & Trevor Lands until she was 12.
Ch. Grauhund Love ina Mist also a multiple Best in Group winner who passed away at the age of 16 years.
Very sadly missed by Brenda and George Furby.
The third was
Ch. Grauhund Lord othe Rings - Rudi
Rudi we kept in partnership with Ann Lands also lived till he was 12. Rudi obtained his Championship title at the age of 11 mths was one of the top winning dogs in the country for many years, winning multiple Best in Shows, Specialty Best in Shows, Royal Show Best in Group and Runner/up in Group wins. He did it all and always gave 100% in the showring. He never let me down.
1989. The 'L' litter was repeated and produced 2 champions.
Ch. Grauhund Moody Blues - Paris owned by Jim Delaney
Ch. Grauhund Midas Touch
We kept. Midas and he was shown sparingly until Jessie Hughes fell in love with him and wanted to take him home. I agreed as this was a great home where he would be campaigned by Jessie in the best possible way. He was very successful winning multiple Best in Groups and In Show awards.
Midas lived a long and happy life till he was 12 years of age.
