Our Girls


Cyda with Rosie

Rosie“, was a very calm, sensible cavalier.

She had 3 very nice litters for us.

Two litters were to Heronbank Jazzy Jasper of Bekheren and one litter was to Heronbank Manannan Beg.  

Rosie “retired” following the birth of her last litter and after having her spayed, she is now living happily with our clients S & J D and their two children in Loughborough.

Cyda” is a lovely black & tan girl, daughter of “Rosie” and “Jazzy”.

Cyda SketchShe had her first pedigree litter in February 2011 – Five lovely, healthy puppies to Heronbank Joy’s Final Fling “Toby”.

Her second litter was born on Easter Sunday 2012.  Again, Toby was the father to 6 gorgeous babies.

There is a little book available for our younger readers.  This is downloadable and printable.  Here is Cyda’s Story

Cyda’s portrait was very kindly sketched for us by Artist Chris Goddard. Thank you Chris for such a lovely picture of Cyda.

The ever-resourceful Nick from Urban Haze managed to record much of Cyda’s second litter as they were being born.  I never cease to marvel in the miracle of life.

Here is the video:

Cyda now lives with her brother, Ted, with our friend P G and her family in Pudsey, Leeds.

Honey and Drummer have brought party-colours back to Heronbank with the birth of Honey’s first litter.

Honey and her first litter.

Honey & Drummer’s first litter was born in October 2013. 5 beautiful puppies, one blenheim and 4 tricolours.  4 are now settling in to their new homes.


Hettie 12 weeks


Honey’s first litter gave us Heronbank Heritage, a stunning tricolour girl whom we have called Hettie. She is now part of the Heronbank pack and in due course we hope she will have babies of her own.





Our bitches have are now retired and are much loved pets.



  Spirit was a blue merle border collie with the most striking blue eyes. As soon as I saw her, at a few days old, I fell in love with her and by the time she was six weeks old, I had convinced John that whatever he said, I was going to have this puppy! I had intended …
