Ivan, Galaxy and new baby Devlin are stars all round the UK

By Emma Gates


We have had a fabulous few weeks showing so far.

Firstly, we attended Scottish Kennel Club Championship show on August 24 with Ivan, Galaxy and our new baby Devlin, who all did us proud yet again in the ring. Ivan – BIS/BPIS/RBPIS Russian Roulette de Lunartico ShCM took VHC in a lovely limit dog class, Galaxy – BIS/RBISS/RBIS Int/Mulit Ch Icewolf Strike a Pose de Lunartico ShCM/Esg16’17/Csg17/TAN/WPD took VHC in a superb open female class, and Dev’s took 1st in puppy dog and 2nd in junior dog. then just the following day Devlin wins Best in Show at Felinfach Show.

On September 7th we attended Richmond Championship show and again our kids did us proud. Devlin took 1st place in minor puppy dog and 1st in puppy dog and overall best male puppy. Galaxy won the biggest class of the day, open female, and went on to win the Reserve Challenge Certificate, gaining her KC Stud Book number and lifetime Crufts qualification. 

Then a week later we headed back up north, this time to Darlington Championship show, with Devlin again winning 1st place in minor puppy dog and 1st in puppy dog and overall best male puppy. Galaxy was flawless all day and gained a very respectable reserve in the biggest and strongest class of the day again, the open bitch class. It has been a tiring few weeks, but lovely to be back on the road, having fun and success with the team, and catching up with some old friends.

The next few months are also going to be busy for us with many shows already booked.

Thank you all at CSJ for your continued support, which means more than we could ever thank you enough for.

Press release – 17.7.19

As one of 4 finalists in the Leadership in the Private Sector category of the prestigious 2019 Leading Wales Awards® Ceri Rundle was invited to attend a judging panel on Friday July 12th at the Hilton Cardiff.

The Leading Wales Awards® were developed by a consortium of professional institutes, voluntary and public sector bodies as well as private companies. The Awards seek to identify, recognise and celebrate personal achievement in outstanding leadership in Wales.

This final stage – having been selected from shortlisted candidates from businesses as diverse as engineering and data – saw Ceri interviewed by a panel of 4 including 2 previous winners.

With a theme in this year of “Daring to Lead®” the judging criteria had sought individuals in Wales whose leadership is courageous, inspirational and transformational.
Ceri whose background took her from breeding, working and trialling her Border Collies to developing her own brand of natural food, treats and herbs for working and active dogs says, “My husband Phil and I are looking forward to attending the awards ceremony on September the 26th…in such strong competition who knows the final outcome, but it has been an honour to have progressed to the final 4!”

We had an amazing 2 days showing at the end of June, day one in Belgium and day 2 in Poland, with Galaxy finishing her Belgian championship and gaining title number 16, and getting another point towards her Polish championship.


Our Leo (SNOWALLEN THOR DE LUNARTICO SHCM, ASG17, TAN, WPD) also did really well with a 2nd place on day one, and winning the CAC and reserve best male in Poland, and also adding another point towards his polish championship.

Our new team member CWNHAPUS TIGERS EYE FOR SHAALI – Tigre the Siberian husky, owned by Samantha Toomer Shaali Kennels, had a fantastic time with us and received the top grading on both days, and best male puppy in Poland. We have a few more shows before Christmas, and lots of plans already in place for 2019.
