We share our home with the fabulous Cavalier, Grand Ch Melloway Excalibur who finished 2007 as #1 Toy Dog in Australia and #7 All Breeds and recently we introduced Papillons, including UK's Top Papillon for 2011, with considerable success. Rolo's pedigree boasts the crème dela crème of UK bloodlines, making him a most valuable asset down under.
Stephanie is also an ANKC licensed All Breeds Judge and judges extensively throughout the world.
