History

 

 

Our passion for dogs started at a very young age. My husband was brought up in a Family that bred and showed Afghan Hounds and Standard Poodles, I was brought up more on the breeding side of things, spending many hours with my grand-mother and the greyhounds. She was top Breeder & Trainer for many years, a rare feat for a woman in those days, she bred and raced under the "Idol" prefix.

 

So it was only natural that we went into showing and breeding dogs. My love of the flat faced breeds also started when I was young, owning a Pekingese when I was a child, So along came the Pugs. We show and breed under the Luosu Prefix (Russell In Chinese)

Our daughter's interest followed in the Pugs, no stranger to the showring, both of our Children were riding Show horses at Royal Shows since the age of 5 and our daughter, Blair still competes at a high level today. Our son however has gone into more horsepower!

Blair showed her first dog at the age of 11 and hasn't stopped since, extending her interest into Boxers under the guidence of Rosina Brace and English Pointers. She has carried on her great- grandmothers prefix of "Idolair", showing and breeding Pugs. Her greatest achievement and proudest moments where producing and showing the grand old man.... Aust. Grand Ch. Chenmke Tazzie Tiger. Taz now retired from the show ring we enjoy campaigning his offspring in the ring with the same presence and attitiude that Taz bought to the ring!

We know the importance of the infusion of new blood and in Feb 2008 our first pug import landed here in Oz. King was bred by our very close friend Heidi of Pugbully Kennels in Norway. Blair has enjoyed much success with King winning groups and in shows. Now his son is taking the reins. We enjoy the challenge of showing blacks in todays showing capacity and are proud that they are multi group winners in their own right.

  We have also imported 2 English pointers from the world famous Kennel Chesterhope and
thank Diane and the girls for all their help over the years.

Always a family effort the dogs are shown with great pride, Our main Objective is that us and the dogs always
have fun, and the dogs are sound in mind and body, true to type.
