Although no longer in residence at Brighthope, Suede will continue to be an important part of our breeding program. It is a win/win situation for all. Suede gets to have a great life with Kim, Pat and Terry. He also gets to visit the girls at Brighthope now and then.

"Never having met a Blue Picardy before, we initally visited Vicki and Dave to see some puppies...and came home with Suede!
We are totally thrilled with him and with this breed. Suede settled into our house quickly and is loved by everyone; he is a beautiful boy, clever with a superb temperament. He gets along extremely well with our son and his friends, our two cats and doggie visitors, being especially gentle with our smaller canine friends." ~~ Pat, Kim and Terry R.

Dani is now retired and lives with our dear friend Maureen. Thank you Dani, for Ciron, Reign and Gus, just some of the lovely puppies you gave us.

Justy is the result of a combined effort between Alexcyril and Brighthope Kennels. Her sire is Ciron and her mother is Racy Des Vives, owned by Don and Kathy Fath in Alberta.
From time to time we will place some of our dogs in approved homes, having them return to Brighthope to be bred. Justy now resides with Kristy and Paul. Apparently she is training Kristy very well, and showing off her pointing prowness to Paul during her field work. In addition she has picked up some new fishing skills and can often be found sitting in the front of the fishing boat, wind blowing thruogh her hair, checking out the birds. It is a great situation all around.
