A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US......

<p>We have made this website so that you can share our lives, see our pictures and leave a message in our guestbook. Hopefully you will enjoy our dogs as much as we do. Ailesbury Kennels was founded by my parents&nbsp;&nbsp;Fred and&nbsp;&nbsp;Ann Cuthbert over&nbsp;fifty years ago. My husband Colin and I&nbsp;are delighted to be able to carry on&nbsp;with this very successful kennel name. Over the years we have had many champions at our kennel&nbsp;in breeds such as Afghan Hounds Borzoi's Old English Sheepdog's &nbsp;Skye Terrier's &nbsp;Deerhounds and Whippets of course.<br /> At the age of seven my parents bought me my first Whippet Ailesbury Peach Blossom &nbsp;and I have had a Whippet around the house ever since. As a founder member of the Junior Handler's Assoc &nbsp;in Ireland I have enjoyed many years around the breed rings as well as taking part in&nbsp;junior handling. In the early eighties&nbsp;I was runner up junior handler of the year with my Whippet Shillelagh Lady Ashe. It only seems like yesterday. After many years in the breed we are delighted to be&nbsp;the very proud owners of Irelands top winning Whippet for the past&nbsp;six years GB IR and INT Ch Collooney Hes The One. Brad&nbsp;has also been&nbsp;top sight hound for&nbsp;three year's&nbsp;and&nbsp;was runner up at the&nbsp;Irish&nbsp;Show Dog Of The Year final in&nbsp;07.He is also Irelands top showdog all beeds for 2010.&nbsp;Brad&nbsp; has&nbsp;three&nbsp;CC's, two with&nbsp;best of breed and three reserve CC's. One of his reserve CC's being at Crufts 2009 and holds the title of Uk Top Whippet stud dog for 2011.&nbsp;Brad's son&nbsp;Indy IR Ch Collooney thas the one&nbsp;also made a little bit of history&nbsp;by becoming the very first IKC&nbsp;junior champion of champion's in 2008.Other members of our whippet show team include IR Ch Kellyvale kissing a fool , Courthill coin of the realm (jun ch),Ailesbury ghost king&nbsp;and Courthill catch a shadow. We also show Borzoi and Skye terrier at our kennels.<br /> &nbsp;We have&nbsp;had so much fun over the year's with our dog's&nbsp;and we are looking forward to many more.&nbsp; We hope you enjoy our site<span style="color: #0000ff;">!!&nbsp;</span></p>
