In August 2015 the beginning of a new venture for LochWind. I have been so fortunate, thanks to the generosity of Guy Jeavons and Mark Houston-Mc Millan of Grandgables, to add to the LochWind family, a highly credentialed show and stud dog, who will arrive in Australia in August 2015.

After Uno leaves Grand Gables for Australia, he will be ably represented at Grandgables by his three beautiful sons.  Am Grd Ch/Can Grd  Ch Grand Gables The Chill Factor AOM,  Am/Can Ch Avebury Grand Gables King Coal ROMC & Am Grd Ch/Can Ch Grand Gables Frosted Footsteps. If only this lovely dog can produce half as well in Australia, my goal is fulfilled.
