In August, the sad day arrived for Bedeslea here and Braschini/Bedeslea in the USA, when Bedeslea Trick O The Tail (Ludo) left us for hunting over the rainbow... I cannot thank Ann and Karen sufficiently for the loving care and quality of life they bestowed on Ludo. His 'second chance' gave him a real family life and daily exercise and hunting. In memory of a great hunter, character and FT award winner. His grandchildren live on at Braschini, which is some comfort to help fill the large gap Ludo leaves behind.

The good news...  All three Lagotti gained high awards in their various disciplines, with Tango and Ted winning their respective classes at Crufts in very good company. Ted was also awarded Best Puppy Dog.

Tica and Ted both took ch show BOB awards in 2019. Tica BB/BOB at Three Counties and NGA ch shows and Ted BD/BOB at Windsor. A brilliant record from Junior classes. 

In October, Tango produced a beautiful litter to Ted and I look forward to seeing them out with their owners in the show ring.

April 2020 would have seen the debuts of some of the Tango/Ted progeny. Wishing them the 'best of luck' and 'lots of fun times' in 2021. Look out for Stephenson's Bedeslea Torna Ancora and Goldby's Bedeslea Tarantella. The working puppies, Poppy, Luigi and Mash will no doubt enjoy some training days and eventually for Lui and Poppy, competing in Gundog Working Tests  too. 

2020 proved to be a wash-out (Covid19) after a successful start at Crufts. Tica won LB and Ted took 2nd LD. Looking forward to starting 2021 when it's safe to do so. 

So many sadnesses in 2020 and the New Year brought a further wrench with the passing of my dear friend, Martin Wellman (Jaspins). A dear and beloved friend since the early 90s and made me proud on many occasions with his Bedeslea-bred Spinoni. He will be sorely missed
Just a few trips out to shows in 2021, with Tica winning another Best Bitch at Blackpool and RBB at Bournemouth. Ted delighted us at Richmond by winning BOB and also taking Best In Show at our LRA Open Show on the same day.

Tica's sister, Pippa, produced two lovely female pups to Ted in the Spring of 2021. Good luck to Susan Tindall with Kara at fieldwork and in the show ring.

November 2021 saw the arrival of two new litters of Ted pups... to Tica and to Tango. Exciting times! Watch this space for photos to follow of the two show boys, Ptoly and Coco.

A house move in the Spring of 2022 and a trip to the National Specialty in California whilst on honeymoon was just the start of an exciting year! A chance meeting with a lovely young Lagotto named Prada led to her joining us in England in October 2022. Prada's arrival at Heathrow proved to be just the best unexpected 'designer Birthday present' a girl could ask for!
A huge congratulations to Coco and Ptoly for winning 1st and 2nd Junior at Crufts 2023, after their brief but successful show outings in 2022. Thank you to Victoria Norbury for handling Coco to his lovely win and Congratulations to Gill Stenning and Cassie and Seth Woodmansterne.

Crufts 2023 - also saw a lovely win for Prada in Limit Bitch at her very first Crufts. A lovely start to the show year for the team.

Ted gained his fourth consecutive BIS at the LRA Open show in April. 

Prada continued her winning ways, gaining Best Bitch awards at:
Border Union,

plus BB and Best Of Breed at:
Gundog Society of Wales

She made the shortlist for Best In Show at GSoW too.
13 Our Dogs Points, making her reserve in line to the BIS Crufts-winning Orca. 
A highly respectable reserve in Open Dog for Ted in the capable hands of Attila Schlosser. Nice job!
