People who know me will vouch for the fact that I am constantly drinking tea! So, this page is ‘Tea For Two’ as, for the first time, we have kept not one but two puppies from our most recent quality litter.
PRA Clear and FN Clear
Hector is the name I’d been saving in case I was ever in a position to keep a boy. He certainly distracted us with his good looks so he had to be KASTRIAN DISTRACTION. After many years, my patience has been rewarded with this truly handsome puppy dog.
Dora is named after William Wordsworth’s daughter. ‘Dora’s Field’ in The Lake District is home for the host of golden daffodils which features widely in this poet’s writing. Being a poetry lover (as well as an avid tea drinker) this name appealed a great deal. She is KASTRIAN TEMPTATION as we were always tempted to keep this bitch at Kastrian. Thank goodness we gave in to temptation.
