Hi, there, I just heard about this thread, and am happy to say that both my dogs are related to Catcombe Corblimey, Obi is his son, and Izzie is his grand daughter.

In fact, I had an enquiry about one of Izzie's expected puppies last night, and because my list is so long, I gave them the telephone number of the Catcombe kennel. The caller wanted a dual-purpose golden, one that has brains and beauty. I'm sure he will get the dog he always wanted from them.

Champion Cock a Doodle Doo is Corblimey's son, is also a lovely dog. All their dogs are active working dogs who also do very well in the show ring. The very best combination, and a tradition which should never die!!

I've had the pleasure of meeting both dogs and have had my hands on them I was a very happy bunny!!!

And I am jealous! I'd LOVE to be able to do a hand's on on Catcombe Corblimey (my European "Canine Crush" )

Hahaha

My puppy is Doodle's son. I haven't met him or Corblimey but they look stunning.

It's so nice to read a thread full of wonderful reports about a breeder. Seems that are so few who do things the right way. Congrats to those who do!

Wendy is a wealth of knowledge. She came and judged the match at the English Tea that was held at the 2008 GRCA National in Rhode Island. She has an excellent illustrated book on the UK breed standard. As someone who's goal is to maintain the integrity of the breed insofar as the maintenance of working ability, physical type, and temperament is concerned I admire her very much.

Personally I like Blimey more than his son Doodle (I'm another fan on this side of the pond) but you'll certainly get a lovely pup.

Speaking of Doodle, one of our members got a nice shot of him at the Championship show in Cardiff, Wales the other week.

I'm liking him very much!

One of our other UK members has recently got a Doodle pup, Boris is gorgeous!
