Ch PT SeaLords Sleepless in Seattle  LJW08

D.O.B.: 26/04/2007

[personal data]



Zoe 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 Portugal, Spain, Gibraltar, International Auriga's Woody Woodruff  

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.

JCh (GI, PT), Ch (PT, GI, ES, IB), GrCh PT SeaLords You've Got Mail  PW14 LW14 BOB13'14 

D.O.B.: 11/09/2011

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 her.

Ch (PT, ES, GI, IB, Iber), GrCh PT SeaLords Quantum Leap  PW16 LW16  BOB15'16

D.O.B.: 21/10/2012

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.

JCh (PT, ES, Iber) Ch (GI, PT) SeaLords Paper Moon  BOB17'18

D.O.B.: 15/05/2016

[personal data]



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!   

When 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 for better? 

Jodie 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.

J Ch PT Bagatelle Moon Dust Fairy JLW18

D.O.B.: 26/07/2017

[personal data]



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.
