Barney The Brave
(Closebride Del Boy x Brydea Lady Jane)
Alfie was our first Beagle and taught us so very much, He was a joy to own, loving, gentle and so well behaved, We researched Beagles for a few years prior to getting Alfie after our Son expressed an interest in them, by which time i wanted to try my hand at showing him, We took him to a local companion show where he won a few rosettes and at 22 months old he attended his first show where he won his Post graduate class then Best of Breed and qualified for Crufts under Sally Parker (Chapscroft) Sally was a lovely judge who took us aside afterwards, gave us some tips on how to get the best from him (and a decent show lead) and was very encouraging, I will always be grateful for her help in introducing us to the breed and the show world in general. Sadly Alfie is no longer with us but is fondly remembered in many ways but mostly for being 'The Beagle that started it all' . Our Kennel name/Affix Alfadais is made up using Alfie and Daisy's names and is a fitting tribute to a lovely boy.

Daisy was our second Beagle arriving about 18 months after Alfie, Unfortunately Daisy never enjoyed showing and so didn't join the others in the show ring but enjoyed life as our 'veteran Beagle' spending her days,sleeping, walking,eating and having lots of cuddles,
