Our Baby “Owen Glendower”

Here I am again today at a very sad time we are going through with the loss of our special baby boy “Owen Glendower” 

He was a dog of all dogs, a gentleman, a lovable dog towards everyone from the youngest of children to the oldest

of people, he loved other animals and never grumbled ever in his life through jealousy or anything else, every visit to the vets for either his booster to the major of problems (just at the end of his life) they classed him as a perfect patient.

We have been devoted cocker spaniel lovers for over 30+ years and have had many wonderful champions and non-champion cockers over our time, we have wonderful stories of their journey from Africa to the United Kingdom stopping over in Spain for 8 months, they were all well travelled….
We are now feeling very sad after 12 years in their new country and losing many of them to old age illness’s with the last of our champion dogs “Owen Glendower” a light blue roan (13 years) leaving us on the 27th of last month but so suddenly going down hill from a healthy dog all his life until now, with tears in my eyes I struggle to write this post.

I know it is very hard for us all when we lose our cocker babies as they are all so very special and always known as people dogs, where ever you go they want to go too.where ever you sit they want to sit too, where ever you sleep they want to sleep with you, such closeness is so special…

Below is the 4 original babies we brought over to England and all 4 leaving us at ages from 13 years to 14 years.
We now have one original black solid (Bella) left with us and also age 13 years, hoping to hang on to her she is doing well up to now, but our little “New Import” from Sweden Jemima who is now 2 years of age and still quite a baby, is feeling quite lonely as her soul mate was definitely “Owen Glendower” she kept him on his toes and played forever with each other.

Her life is just beginning and we hope she will fulfil a beautiful healthy life like her former family have done, also becoming a mummy on her next season with Owen Glendower and his line, she is also an amazing dog full of vigour and excitement.

We are fortunate that a year ago we visited the “Sperm Bank” with Owen Glendower and Jemima who was then in her first season, for the testing of Owen Glendower and taking his sperm for freezing which was quite successful so, luckily if all goes well we shall be able to do an ( AI ) between Jemima and Owen Glendower.

The vet at the time was very surprised how healthy his sperm was for a dog of 12 years of age as we were told by many people that we were wasting our time and money even testing him so old, how wrong they were.

I am a children’s author and writer and have many wonderful written stories of all our beautiful cockers and many others too. Our home has gone from seven to now only two over these years and is pretty quiet, too quiet for me.

I haven’t been updating for some time due to a children’s book just published which took up a lot of my time, however, I shall be updating now again with Owen Glendower and his story.


Here we have “Owen Glendower” whom we lost so recently, these pictures were taken of him exhibiting at Crufts in 2014 and along with his owner (my daughter) who worked with him for all those years.

He won his first Puppy show at 4 months of age winning Best Puppy In Show, he really was a star in the making… and here we have him below as a puppy, he certainly was an amazing baby in every way, there will be no other like him.

"Baby Owen"

Beatrix our International Champion (age) 10yrs here but left us at 14 years (Owen Glendower’s mummy) and also an Int.Ch.

William age 14 years (Bunters brother)

Our Int. Ch. Bediverebrwyn Llanberis (aka) Billy Bunter (age 13 years,

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have written all about Bunter, William and Beatrix on this site when they left us a couple of years ago, each one got a write-up but now I am just putting the 4 together as a family.

We do have another one Bella who is the last one left from this original family and now 13 years but still going well at the moment.

Here we have our new family addition, Jemima who is now 2 years old, still a baby and missing Owen Glendower, he was her soul mate without a doubt.

I shall try and get on here more often as I do have many good little stories to read most of them not so miserable but I feel it’s my duty whenever one of our fur babies sadly leave us to write about them.

I wish you all well and you shall see me back here very soon, hopefully with the exciting news of Jemima’s babies being born.
