Ch PT SeaLords Sleepless
in Seattle LJW08
is our first Old English
Sheepdog - that is, she is the first one that is not a Bobtail, and has a
beautiful, always wagging, tail. She is very agile and very
playful, though she is a bit noisy - and unfortunately that "pot cassť"
tone in the bark seems to have been lost in this family ... But she has such a
cute face, with what my daughter calls "Bambi eyes", that it is very
hard to get mad at her. She is also very smart, and is found frequently stealing
things from the fridge, that she opened herself. She is our Scottex OES - often we find a "road" of toilet paper
throughout the corridor, with Zoe at the end, eating it ...

Grand Champion Portugal, Ch
Gibraltar, International Auriga's Woody
JP09 PW10 LW10'12 BOB10'11'12 BOG10
Woody is our latest import. He has
the compact body, the solid, wide rear and effortless movement that
characterizes his line. Besides, he has the most wonderful character you could
wish for. He's not much of the kind of begging for attention, but he's always
following me. When I think of where he might be, I just look down at my feet,
and there he is. OK, he seems to be always hungry and steels every bit of food
he finds unattended (and also attended, but not much... ), but no one is perfect.
He made friends easily with "Noisy"
Zoe, who has not always taught him the right things ...
We deeply thank Martin Doherty (Auriga Kennels)
for the trust he has put on us and for chosing us this wonderful dog.

You've Got Mail PW14 LW14 BOB13'14
Lightning (animated films characters are becoming
very strange ...) is a 5 generation SeaLords
dog and has done great in the show ring (though, like all the others, she would
have prefered staying at home, playing with the other dogs), being our 5th homebred
Champion and the youngest to complete her Ch. PT title. She's always jumping
around, and she seems to have springs in her feet, just like Zoe. She's a
perfect combination of her parents, and we can see many features from both in

Quantum Leap PW16 LW16 BOB15'16
Our second litter Woody x Zoe was made so we
could keep a male. And there he was, the first born! Charlie is a very happy boy
that uses his tail a
lot (we have gone fom hating the tail -> get used to it -> loving
it!) and a look that melts everybody. He seems to have taken a lot
from his father, as he has lots of substance and a coat that is clearing very
slowly, but he has a face very similar to Light's, you could tell they are twins.
He stayed at home, maturing, while we were campaigning Light, so he just entered
the rings when he was already 2 years old. He is very short, with a lovely and wide square head,
with good stop and easy
movement, given by his good angles fore and aft and nice short hocks. He loves
going to the beach, where he can take big runs and play "catch me if you
can" with other dogs.

(PT, ES, Iber) Ch (GI, PT) SeaLords
Paper Moon BOB17
This litter was supposed to be born on the 16th
of May, which would be quite funny as there had already been 2 litters born on
this same day: litter "B", from which we kept 2 bitches,
SeaLords Breakfast at
Tiffany's and SeaLords Back to the Future, and litter
"M". It may sound strange
but we only noticed the coincidence of litter "M" being born on the 16th May well
after the puppies left home, and it was even stranger that we had named the pick of
litter "Moon River", the song from "Breakfast at
Tiffany's"! So we decided
that if these puppies would be born on the 16th the female pick of litter (to keep at
home) would be named after a song from the film "Back to the Future"
and the obvious choice would be "Power of Love". Eventually the
puppies were born one day earlier than predicted but we still decided to name the
pick boy Power of Love, so all the rest of the litter would have to start also
by the letter P. And looking at the options the choice for pick
female was very
easy. I know
that everybody thinks of "Paper Moon" as the movie, but for me it was first
of all a TV series, that
was aired here around 1975, soon after it was released in the USA, starring Jodie Foster. We were about the same
age (still are, of course ),
and the character in the series had also that tomboy facet to which I could
relate so unsurprisingly I became a big fan of Jodie then. So it came naturally
- registered name: Paper Moon; call name: Jodie!
planning this litter I was hoping that Norman would give us some black patches in the head, as
I am really getting fed up with all white headed dogs, so when Jodie was born (she
was the first one) I was really happy! A girl and an eye patch, who could ask
has always been a very happy girl, which shows on the way she uses her tail (have
I told you that I really love the tails?),
and we hope that soon she will be defending the SeaLords name in the show
rings, our 6th generation.

Ch PT Bagatelle
Moon Dust Fairy JLW18
Luna comes from a breeder that was on my "at
watch" list for almost a decade. But it was only in the beginning of 2017
that I decided to dive into this adventure and I was very lucky that Joanne
Charest was willing to make my dream come true by sending me a Bagatelle bitch.
Luna is everything I like in an OES: compact, lots of bone, dark eyes, good
angles, a good coat that is very easy to groom and, most of all, a movement that
takes your breath away! Not forgetting, of course, a very sweet, very
"zen" temperament. She charms everybody that comes to know her, maybe
she sprinkles some magical dust, like all fairies do. We are eager to see what
she will bring to our breeding, but for now our plans for her is to watch her
grow and having fun.
