Mary Brighoff's Boys

Recommended Posts

Renee and I stayed with Mary Brighoff while we were trialing at for Hop Bottom. While there we had a "puppy show". Mary worked Lance, I worked Nell, and Renee worked her BJ and our house guest Kit. Mary wanted working shows of Lance and so you all get to enjoy them too.

Damn fine looking dogs. I love the last one of Lance, he's gorgeous. Is he one of the Nell/BJ/Nash littermates?

Paula,

They're ALL in the family.

Lance (Val x my Peg) is a littermate of Nell (me), Nell (JP Lelonde), BJ (Renee Billadeau), Liz (Peggy Wilkinson), Ted (Becca Shouse), Nash (Celia Morgan), and Kit (Stu Ligon).

Ben (Val x Kip) is a littermate of Jody (me), Brook (Sue Asten), Tess (Sherry Sheldon).

Well, I guess he really DID turn on, huh? [img]http://www.hopefieldfarm.com/images/icons/woohoo.gif[/img] He certainly looks the real deal, doesn't he?

Well done, Lance. :rolleyes: He is gorgeous, he looks so much more mature to me than Nash. Maybe if I could take pics when Nash was "on" instead of just staring at him lovesickedly.

Great pics as usual. :D Thank you.

I love that pic of Val. I don't think I'd ever seen one.

What I wanta know is - where did Ben get all that hair???? He doesn't look like Kip or Val (or any of his sisters that I've seen..)!? He must be a throwback to Wilson's Spot? Laurie

Oh my, Lance and Lark could be twins (though I'm guessing he's a lot bigger--judging from the shots that include sheep). Nice shots, Mark!

Celia,

Starr and Val are not related. They do look alike.

Our Family

Val x Starr = Rae & Gyp
Val x Kip = Jody
Val x Peg = BJ & Nell

Laurie,

That's my guess too (a throwback to Spot).

Well that's weird. I thought I posted earlier and didn't.

Ben and Ted look more like littermates than Ted and his littermates! The face, expression, and everything. One of the things that makes me smile almost unfailingly is that YAY! look of Ted's and there it is on Ben's face!

Does Ben have more or less eye do you think? I'm guessing Ted will end up pretty moderate which will be just fine with me.

I do think they favor Spot, though there's certainly hairy dogs on Ted's dam's side of the family also.

I don't remember for certain how much eye Mary said Ben has; I want to say fairly loose eyed.
Val and Kip are both smooth coated, I suspect Ben gets his coat from Spot (Val's dam was smooth coated).

Peg's rough coated and there were 2 rough coated pups: Ted and JP's Nell.

Terrific pictures of all of the dogs. Lance is an absolute heartbreaker! The chasing down of sheep picture is so cool.

:D Well, when you have so many, I suppose that happens!

Ben does remind me a lot of the few pics I've seen of Ted.

Now, THAT's a look that can move sheep! Wow!

Great shots, Mark.
