In late 2004 we were delighted to be able to import Rhianne (Ch Ebontide Parisian Affair ) from Janice & Roger Clifford of Ebontide Kennels in the UK.   Rhianne's pedigree combines the finest Groenendael breeding lines from both France & the UK, and we were thrilled to have such a beautiful girl.  To see Rhianne's British Relatives, visit Ebontide Groenendaels   She attained her Australian Championship title in record time and is much admired for her stunning looks and extremely friendly and outgoing personality.  She has won Group-level awards at the Baby Puppy, Minor Puppy and Junior levels.  Rhianne's brother English Ch Ebontide Nexus for Lykos, won Runner-up Best in Show at the Combined UK Belgian Shepherd Speciality Shows held in August 2006, and our Paco's nephew Corsini Valentino won Best In Show at the same Speciality Show! 

 

In 2006 we mated our beautiful Rhianne to our handsome imported Tervueren male Aust & Eng Ch Corsini Lysander (Imp UK) "Paco", with 7 beautiful Groenendael puppies being born on 31 October 2006 as a result. See our Puppies 2006 page for the details!

 

Rhianne has now gone to live in northern Sydney, with Megan and Whayne, who also adore her and she is thriving on their undivided attention! A picture of her with Megan is shown below left, and Rhianne playing on the beach is shown right.
