Welcome to our
website, we hope you enjoy your visit.
A little about us.
We are David and
Lorraine Burton and have been married 29 years and together have owned and bred
Cocker Spaniels for over twenty years.
Before I met David I
owned Cocker Spaniels and had shown successfully at many Open shows. As a
youngster I had not yet stepped into the Championship Show scene! But
thoroughly enjoyed my weekends at lots of local and very well supported Open
David and I were
married in 1988 and soon after decided to start our own family (David being
older than me didn’t want to waste any time!) Thomas was born in March 1990 and
two years later we had our daughter Jennifer in March 1992. During this time,
family commitments, work and looking after my father, who was terminally ill
curtailed any plans to show our dogs or breed, so we decided to take a break.
Unfortunately when I
thought the time was right to start my line again our dogs were too old, so we
decided to buy in a lovely Blue Roan bitch from Moray Armstrong of the ‘Bitcon’
kennels Lucy ‘Bitcon Shining Jewel’. We also bought in a lovely Blue Roan bitch
from the ‘Mossdew’ Kennels, Emma ‘Mossdew
Galaxy’. Our lines mostly go back to Emma, as although we had some success with
Lucy in the show ring, Lucy never produced a bitch in her two litters that we
could carry this line on through.
Six years ago we
bought in another blue roan bitch from the ‘Strathturret’ kennels in Scotland.
Grace ‘Strathturret Rainbows for Dreamist’ Grace is by our own blue boy Romeo, ‘Rancecraig Romeo’ (now retired from
show and stud) Grace was successful in the show ring with many firsts and BP at
open shows and also a handful of Champ show firsts, including second in her
class at ‘Crufts’. Grace has her studbook number and has also given us two
beautiful litters of puppies. We have two daughters from Grace, Sheila
‘Dreamist Pinky Pirata’ and Daphne from Grace’s last litter ‘Dreamist Forevermore’ that will hopefully continue this line for us, as well as have some fun
in the show ring.
All of our dogs are
health tested or hereditarily clear for PRA and FN . We only have an occasional
litter of puppies, but can usually recommend other reputable breeders that may
have puppies available.
