Gregory is the result of a union between my lovely Harvey (Ch. Meinlieb King O Hearts CCD RN) and Michele Thomas' Alexandra (Ch. Celerity I Told U It Was Magic at Meinlieb, Imp NZ).
Like his brother, Dougal, Gregory is also a livewire but a little softer in personality. He also enjoys landscaping the yard and is Dougal's partner in crime. In public, he is a 'people person' who loves meeting new folks. He enjoys cuddles and tummy-rubs and asks for more by waving his front feet in the air while laying on his back.
A very bright dog, Gregory is a real go-getter and very nicely constructed with a perfect tail set, good reach and drive, and a huge coat of the prettiest red-gold colouring. He has a sweet expression, lovely dark eyes, beautiful mouth, blacker than black pigment, broad chest, lovely rear and a friendly demeanour. Gregory is a Runner-Up in Group & Class in Show winner. He has had good wins in proven competition and under breed specialist judges, adeptly handled by my friend Mandy Cook. Like all of my dogs, Gregory is not penned to grow coat!
Gregory and his brother, Dougal, are training in Jumping & Agility and started trialling in Jumping in Sept 2009.
Thank you to Michele Thomas for allowing Harvey into my life and, as a result, his two delightful sons as well :-)
20 Sept 2009 - Gregory earns the first leg of his JD title with a 1st PLACE in his first ever trial!
