I am very pleased to introduce our new boy Alfie, who arrived home yesterday. Alfie's daddy is Karcasam Daniel Steele, who lots of you will probably know won Best Dog at Crufts in 2009. Personally we think Alfie is every bit as handsome as his daddy, but obviously we are biased!













He has settled pretty well so far, he was understandably nervous at first but is getting more relaxed, he is such a snuggly boy, all he wants to do is climb on your lap and have cuddles.

He's 7 months old. His dam is Karcasam Fifi Forgetmenot. I got him from Nick & James at Cholas Chihuahua's, Nick had Alfie & Alfie's sister along with another dog as potential breeding dogs, but decided just to use the other dog and rather than selling Alfie on to another breeder he wanted him to go to a family home, so offered him to us. We're very pleased he did!

Oh, he's so handsome! Lucky you!!!!!! :)
I love his name, too. I wanted to name Dexter "Albie", Alfie is close!
Again, Congrats! Was his sister just as gorgeous or did you get to see her?

Stunning! But then the Karcasm dogs always are! (although im biased too, Maisie has a few Karcasm dogs in her pedigree too!)

His sister was lovely, they were pretty much like twins! His daddy was there too, Nick is a professional show dog handler - he takes other breeder's dogs and trains them in ring craft, so Daniel has been staying with them for a while.

Nick & James have been so lovely and helpful, so many of the breeders I contacted just wanted to sell me a dog without taking the time to talk to me and answer my questions, but they really took the trouble to talk things over and offer advice.

I see on Crufts 2009 that Karcasam Daniel Steele is listed under "DOG CHALLENGE CERTIFICATE" ... does that mean Best of Breed or am I reading it wrong?? Alfie is definately a good looking dog.... congrats....

Thanks for all your lovely comments! Plus- apologies, just realised my error - Alfie's Daddy wasn't BoB, he was best Dog. Doh! I really am not very good at all the different classes. Will go back and edit before anyone else discovers how ignorant I am. ;)
