2005 I went to help out at Brian & Sue Hawkins [Brilyn] Kennels
and Cattery, and was asked if I'd like to socialise a 4 month old
tri dog called Ben [Brilyn Back in Black] as they seemed to think
he would benefit from being in a mad house!!
months I was encouraged to enter him at an Open Show and thats when
I got the bug. I had lots of fun with him and started to meet and
make new friends in the collie world.

Ben came Honey [Brilyn Shaded Secret] whose only pleasure is to be
as big a part of our family as she can, she just craves attention.
She's not too keen on showing so I have retired her, in the hope she'll
be a "yummy mummy".
Shaded Secret [Honey]
went to live with Bill and Louise Cutlet in Portmadog, so it was time
for me to restock.
came Indie, [Brilyn Sing A Rainbow] and Brie [Brilyn Moonlight].
They did quite a lot of Open Shows in and around our area and in October
2006 Indie had a litter of 7 puppies to Ross [Bluchip Spirit in the
Sing A Rainbow and Brilyn Moonlight.
the litter we kept Willow, Elshajo Treasured Memories,
she is the first to have my affix which is made up of my childrens
names, Eleri, Shaun and Jodi.
the above dogs have now gone to pet homes and are enjoying family
life, Brilyn Moonlight and Elshajo Treasured Memories. So I have decided
to update a few things.
I wish to say a big thank you to Sue Hawkins as she has let me have
Brilyn Finesse [Cassie] who is a joy to have, full of fun!!
has produced a litter in July to Brilyn Secret Weapon from which I
have kept a sable and white bitch puppy,
"Cher" who I look forward to bring out in 2009.[Photo to

have kept a tricolour dog Elshajo Armani Moon.
Amani is a lovely lad to have around. He's his mum's "blue
eyed boy". He has started his showing career and has
done very well so far and I look forward to 2009 and having
fun with him.
