We were introduced to this magnificent breed in the late eighties when we got Defa. He had limited success in the ring but his forte was obedience where he competed at test “A” as well as representing the South West of England at Crufts in the JHA finals.
Over the years Stacey, Fugley, Ishey, Auryn & Finley have all been a part of our lives and at the moment we have Rommie (returned to us aged 8.5 yrs old) Minxie and Puzzle & Toot.
We chose our Affix “FALKOR” which is the name of the luck dragon in the NeverEnding story and our foundation bitch Auryn is named after the amulet which has the power to save the land of Fantasia and which the story is based around. The Falkor Emblem (above) incorporates “The Auryn” and the head study of our Chinnie, who was Auryns daughter that we kept from her first litter. Tragically we lost Chinnie very suddenly in February 2007 to ITP.
We were going to keep the mythical theme when naming our pups and spent many hours studying some weird and wonderful ones. Then one day whilst chatting to Mary MacPhail and running some of these names by her, she wisely suggested that they were not only easy to miss spell but even easier to miss pronounce. Mary asked me to name some of the top show dogs from the past, which I did, she then pointed out that I had not named one dog with a name that was even slightly difficult to pronounce. So after having a re-think we came up with “Trades and Professions” as the Rott is of course a “working dog”!!!!!!!
Well that’s the introductions over with, so please feel free to browse around and we hope you enjoy your visit.
