Christine Morton has previously owned a UK CC winner...

"Carrie" won all her qualifying CCs in Wales and is a Welsh resident born and bred.  In 2012 she won a Best Puppy at the August Scottish Kennel Club and within the year her first CC came at Welsh Kennel Club 2013 from Bill Browne-Cole (Travella) after a Reserve CC at Three Counties and BIS at the WHWT Club of England open show.  She won further Reserve CCs at City of Birmingham, the WHWT Club and Midland Counties.  Into 2014, Carrie again won a CC at Welsh Kennel Club from Liz Cartledge (Ryslip) and was also BOB.  Another Reserve came at City of Birmingham, before a 3rd CC from Dave Dingley (Davot) at South Wales K A.  This made her owner, Christine Morton's first UK Champion and the second for breeders, Elaine and Ian Hughes.

Carrie is a daughter of Mrs Morton's Irish Ch Havasu Hey Dude for Swifdon from Brychdyn Remarque; their first UK Champions.  Hey Dude ended the year with 3 CC winning offspring plus 2 with Reserve CCs making him Top Stud Dog 2014.  Remarque is the daughter of the first Brychdyn Champion, Kite Mark.  Hey Dude and Remarque are not closely related, linked initially by Ch Ashgate Hielan Laddie, a dog made up in 1994.  Remarque's sire, Dutch bred The Dashing Devil's Shotgun is also the grandsire of 2014 Champion Pentangle Hello Oscar.  Remarque's litter sister, Marquise produced dual CC winner, Brychdyn Diamond Geezer to Hey Dude, owned by his breeders.

Remarque's dam was the first Brychdyn Champion Kite Mark.  Owned and bred by Elaine and Ian Hughes, she was by Ch Karamynd High As A Kite from Hopecharm Little April Dream, a granddaughter of two Ashgate key stud dogs, Ivanhoe and his grandsire Sinclair. Little April Dream, bred by Shauna Fryer, is a great granddaughter of Hopecharm's foundation bitch, Famecheck Full Of Charm.  A previous litter of April Dream's produced Reserve CC winner, Hopecharm Who'z That Girl at Burneze.

Remarque's litter sister, Brychdyn Marquise, when mated to Hey Dude produced dual CC winner, Brychdyn Diamond Geezer.

Not closely related, Carrie's parents hold several lines to different kennel's breeding.
