With style and energy!
In 1974 I had the opportunity to buy my first dog. I
chose a Labrador Retriever, they seemed to have
everything I was looking for in a dog, with their never
ending "will to please."
In 1976 the first litter was born and it gave me the
appetite for more! The puppies got names on the letter
A. In the second litter 1977, Duckling's Blackbird
was born and her genes have been present in all my
I have never been a big producer of puppies and I have
always kept my bitches in my own home, so in 1987 when I
had the bad luck to get prcd-PRA on Duckling's
Jetbird, it was a disaster. Today we luckily have a
DNA-based test for this disease.
Thanks to Lotta Håkansson, at Loving Will's Kennel, who
had bought a nice bitch Duckling's Eaglet from me
and bred on her, I could pick up my old bloodlines and
continue my breeding.

My Labradors have
never been of the heavy type and they all have been
quite independent in their way to work.

and a "Show type" was sad and I was not very active
at Shows and Trials the last years.

always been dealing with horses, I have been horseback
riding since I was a kid. And where there are horses, there are Jack Russell Terriers.
When I bought my first Jack Russell in 2001, I
had no breeding plans, but the authorization of the
breed by FCI and SKC the same year made it possible.
Although England is the country of origin,
Australia is the country of developement for the FCI
Jack Russell Terrier and I have had the chance to import
four Jack Russell puppies from Australia. Thank you to
Mrs Lynette Brown at MacBraedly for
MacBraedly Kid Galahad and
MacBraedly Darkpassage and to Mrs Marnie Thornton
and Mrs Janet Hamblin at Jarnee, for sending
Jarnee/JR Just Jillaroo and
Jarnee/JR Just A

My last horse Granit, a Swedish Warmblood, was 14
years old when I bought him in 1996 and he became 20

You learn a lot about gait, dealing with horses. Good
conformation gives a good gait, both in horses and
