In February 2006 the Hornby family where devastated by the deaths of


Meonshore Josh

We got Josh when he was almost 3 years old, we considered him the most beautiful chihuahua we had ever seen ...and still do.

He was top sire and stud dog in the UK for 3 years.

The most important puppy he ever fathered was CH Bramerita Naughty But Nice  who became The Top Winning Dog All Breeds Ever in the UK.

Josh was only ever shown once.

Such a special dog to us that died in Shelda's arms aged 11 years old.


ZZmans Wild Flame at Bramerita

  Willy came to us  at 14 months old in 3 shows he won 2 CCS and in the 5 months he was with us sired  some fabulous puppies, he was UK top sire of the year in  2006 smoothcoats and became the foundation of our smoothcoats today .

Of course just given a little longer on this planet he would have become a champion ,but it was not to be.

.His daughter CH Bramerita Flamin' Elle won Best of Breed at Crufts and his son Flamin' Hot has been reserve Best Dog at Crufts..

 Willy unfortunately died of a brain tumor aged 20 months old..      We often wonder if he had not died so young what a legacy he would have left !   He was a lovely dog to live with; a real family member.
