Serenaker Beagles & Pharaoh Hounds

Our History


My love of dogs & Beagles in particular all started in 1980 when I outgrew my pony & decided I wanted a dog instead!. It had to be big enough to have fun with, but small enough to fit easily into my parent’s house. Mum wanted a Beagle & Dad an Irish Setter, we visited a few homes who owned these breeds & decided that a Beagle would be less manic than the energetic Setter!. Yes we were naïve!.

Scooby Doo duly arrived just before Christmas 1980 & changed my life forever. Barclan Tempo was my first dog & show dog, although he was not the best specimen of the breed, we won well at local shows in both breed & Junior Handling & I was bitten by the bug!.

1985 saw the arrival of Bondlea Piper & although he never hit the heights of his famous brother Poet, he did me proud winning amongst other things BPIS at his first show South West Hound Club under Jayne Wilson-Stringer.

1986 saw the arrival of Samwella Luther at 13 months of age, a gift from his breeder Pam Williams. Luther was a dog in a million & despite the difficulties in winning with a T/W male, he won well for me & we gained our first ever CC at Bournemouth under breed judge Ted Turner. My affix Serenaker was granted to me the same year, so not a bad year for a mere novice in the breed.

1987 Luther wins his 2nd CC & BOB at the 4 Counties Beagle Club under Sylvia Tutchener.He also wins the RCC at Birmingham under Veronica Bradley & RCC at Devon & Cornwall Beagle under Daphne Ayland.

1988Luther wins the RCC under Bobby James at the WKC.

1989 Luther became a champion under respected breed judge Jean Westren, a truly great moment with my best pal.

I had long admired the Beagles of Eleanor & Frank Bothwell of Norcis fame, & I was lucky enough to spend some time with them “learning Beagles”. I had a bitch pup from them but she didn’t make the grade & so I waited.

1991 Norcis Cornriggs came along & again I was campaigning a T/W dog!. He won well for me before an accident put paid to his show career just as he was reaching his prime.

1992 Norcis Elkie had arrived, she had a fantastic pedigree & was sister to Murphy’s Law a favourite of mine. She produced my first homebred litter to Cornriggs

1994 Norcis Gen arrived, a daughter of the fabulous Foxy Lady & Murphy. She never hit the dizzy heights of the showring, but she proved her worth in the whelping box 10 fold.

1995 saw the arrival of Norcis Miss Muffet, a very tidy T/W girl

1996 saw our 2nd litter, Elkie to Rossgay Rambler. This produced Serenaker Kind of Magic who went on to become the foundation bitch of the Cuthill’s Benroma kennel. Muffet won BPAOC at the BA champ show under Jean Westren shortly before returning to her home kennel.

In 1997 we decided to add PBGV’s to the kennel having fallen in love with this mischievous breed at shows & after being asked to handle one at a couple of shows for Yvonne Dean & Claire Gutherless. Deanound Tonnere (Louis) duly arrived & immediately took over.

1998 saw wins for Tonnerre as he won well throughout his puppy career & was RBPIS at the Hound Association of Scotland in 1998 under Jill Peak. He won us our first major award at Crufts where he won the RCC under Mrs J Walker. Gen’s litter to Ch. Norcis Mouseltoff produced Serenaker Fatal Attraction or Frankie to her friends

1999 Tonnerre won the RCC at Bath under Mrs S Roberts. This year saw us in the position to allow a Pharaoh to take over our home, we had pick dog from a litter bred by Antony Bongiovanni. Dexter or Ankors Blade Runner was by an American Import dog (Lileo's Orpheus of Serafin) out of Tony’s BIS winning bitch (Surannon Summer Solstice for Ankors).

2000 saw Gen's final litter to a young dog Fallowfield Douglas who had won well as a puppy, this liasion gave us the very infuential Serenaker Carousel (Carrie-Ann). Douglas went on to become a champion & was the top Beagle stud dog for 12 consecutive years. Dexter was Top PH Puppy dog. Frankie won her first CC under breed specialist Jack Peden.

In 2001 we tragically lost Louis our PBGV, but not before siring a litter of 1 to Mike Gadsby & Gavin Robertson’s bitch Allumeuse. Obviously we had to have this puppy & Afterglow Causin’ A Storm duly arrived. We also became joint owners of Ankors Behutet (Rohan), who I handled to gain her title under Marion Spavin at Birmingham National. Rohan finished the year as Top PH after winning the group & RBIS at Bournemouth under Denys Simpson & Geoff Corrish, Dexter finished as joint Top winning PH Dog.

2002 saw Dexter gain his title at Birmingham National under Carla Molinari & win the Group at Paignton under Denys Simpson. Frankie won her 2nd CC under another breed specialist Dianna Spavin & Rohan finished as Top PH Bitch.

2003 Dexter won the Dog CC at Crufts under Dr Brian Sprole & Storm the DCC at Blackpool under Joyce Mann. Frankie became our first homebred CHAMPION after winning her crowning CC under breed specialist Christine Lewis. Rohan finished as Top PH Bitch, & the most important part of the kennels history Serenaker Devil Woman (Charlie) was born

2004 Carrie Ann won the RBCC & RBIS at the BC of NI under Penney Jefferies, Rohan finished as Top PH & Charlie as Top Beagle Puppy.

2005 Charlie won her first CC with BOB at Bath under Jeff May & Storm won the RCC at Blackpool under xxxxx. Frankie had a litter to Douglas which gave us Serenaker Freya. Charlie won her 2nd CC at the Beagle Association under David Bradley, gained her title at WKC under Roy Metcalf & finished the year as Runner up Top Bitch.

2006 Charlie won the CC & BOB at Crufts under respected breed specialist judge Dianna Spavin & ended up group 3 under Robin Searle. Not to be outdone Frankie took Best Veteran.Charlie sailed over the water to pick up the GS, BOB & Group first at the Celtic Winners show under Hound specialists Zena Thorne Andrews & Linda Gover & in doing so gained her Irish Title. Charlie took Runner up in the Pedigree Champion Stakes under Anne McDonald at Birmingham National.

Charlie was Top Brood Bitch, Archie won 4th overall in the Petplan Junior Stakes final & finished the year as TOP PUPPY ALL BREEDS

2008 The year started badly with the loss of our lovely old girl Norcis Gen, her legacy lives on. Charlie was again Top Brood Bitch & Archie won the prestigious DOG WORLD/PURINA PUP OF THE YEAR final, the first beagle in the competitions history to do so judge was Top Allrounder Albert Wight. He was also Runner Up in the Kennel Club JW winners final held at Crufts under Renee Spore-Willes. Archie won BOB & Group 2 at Manchester under Dagmar Kennis Pordham, the RDCC at Crufts under Sally Kimber & then Runner up in the Champion Stakes at HAS. We were delighted when Dr Stephen Sipperly & Mr Dominic Carota of the famous Hallam Hall Pharaoh Hounds in the USA, allowed us co-ownership of one of their wonderful hounds.Ch/AmCh. Hallam's Busiris Ra Qena has a superb pedigree being by Ch,Am,Int,Nordic,Swedish,Finnish,Danish,Norwegian Ch Farao Anubis Ramses x Am.Int.PR.Ch.Kamaraj Qena Saqqara.

Less than 7 days later at Blackpool Charlie's other daughter Titchy Witch won her 1st CC under German specialist Siegfried Peter - all in all a wonderful few days!.

2010 In a nutshell the year started with a new arrival at Serenaker, Birkhall Hallam's Brodie, a Sirus son x IrCh. Antefa's Renenet at Birkhall bred by our friends Claire Hindley, Sheila McDonald & Danny Martin. Crufts saw yet another RCC in Pharaoh's, this time with Miss Kacey under Ferilith Somerfield.

We finished the year with TOP PUPPY in breed for both Pharaoh's & Beagles! After a short holiday Archie gained his German title & Sirus was the #1 PH in the USA & the Top Pharaoh Hound Stud dog in the UK

2011 started badly with the loss of our first homebred champion - Ch Serenaker Fatal Attraction. Frankie was a dog in a million & our lives were enriched knowing her. She was certainly looking down on us a week later when we won the CC & BOB with Pixie under breed specialist Jean Westren at CRUFTS & was pulled in the final 7 of the Hound Group under breed & hound expert Eleanor Bothwell.We won the double for the 2nd year running at SKC with both Vinnie & Pixie winning their 2nd CC's, this time the ladies took the edge with Pixie BOB. Blondie whelped a litter to Ch. Fallowfield Bartholomew & this produced Serenaker Figaro (BB) & Sogni D'Oro (Macey - owned by Louise Bennet). At Houndshow Squiddey won his 2nd CC under Ben Reynolds Frost & then the RCC at WKC under Trish Wells where Brodie picked up his 2nd CC thanks to judge Eleanor Bothwell.

2012 Started very badly as we lost Charlie in January, she was my soulmate & best friend. Everything this small kennel has achieved has been due to her. She was one in a million & will never be forgotten. Squiddley Diddley won his 3rd & crowning CC with BOB at Crufts under breed specialist Marion Hunt & followed up with BOB & Group 4 at WELKS under Margaret Davies & Zola Rawson. Our bad luck continued with the loss of Rohan in April, we can never thank Antony enough for allowing her to be part of our lives. On the showing front the wins continued with Serenaker Othello (Dyson - co-owned with Rachel Cuthill) winning BPIS at the BCNI under renown breed expert Patricia Sutton. Kacey gained her 3rd CC & Crown with RBIS at the PHC show under hound specialist Nigel Blackstock & Pixie collected her 3rd CC & Crown with BOB at Houndshow under breed specialist Linda Hawley & Monica Boggia-Black. Brodie took BIS at the PHC under xxxx & Belle won her 1st CC & RBIS at West Mercia BC under breed expert Dianna Spavin. November saw our first ever PH litter registered under the Serenaker affix - huge thanks to Stephen & Dominic for allowing us that fantastic opportunity. A dog & bitch puppy Serenaker Sirocco (Rocky) & Serenaker Khamsin (Phoebe) stayed at the home kennel to be campaigned.

2013 A quick trip over the water to the Emerald Isle saw Squiddy take the GS,BOB & Group 1 at the St Patricks Day show under Stephen O'Brien, repeating the wins his great-grandmother took in 2006. A trip to NI next saw Serenaker Figaro co-owned & handled by Charlotte Norridge win his 1st CC & RBIS under Jen Davies. We said a tearful farewell to our first Pharaoh Hound Dexter, he taught us a lot & will never be forgotten. SKC saw a RCC for Dyson under Nick Bryce-Smith & our latest Champion Pharaoh - Ch Birkhall Hallams Brodie of Serenaker under Ken Sinclair. Shortly after this Brodie made his way across the pond to join the Hallam Hounds. Blackpool saw Dyson take his 1st CC under David Webster after numerous RCC's. Blondie produced her 2nd litter, this time to Serenaker Othello & we kept a rather luscious T/W girl called Serenaker Fashion (Dizzy). SWKA saw Belle win her 2nd CC, BOB & Group 2 under breed judge Ron Caney & group judge Jenny Dove. We did the treble at the PHC show under Claire Hindley with Kacey winning BIS, Rocky winning BPIS & RBD & Phoebe taking RBPIS - what a day!. Miss Kacey won her 4th CC under Michael Quinney at Midland Counties. A sad end to the year though when our last PBGV left & we said goodbye to Afterglow Causin' A Storm.

2014 The year started well with the RCC at Manchester with Serenaker Figaro. February came the good news of his American title for Ch. Birkhall Hallam's Brodie of Serenaker. March was good to us with Dyson winning the RCC at Crufts under Liz Calikes & Serenaker Figaro winning his 3rd & crowning CC at 4 Counties Beagle Club under Nigel Blackstock. April was equaly good to us with Serenaker Othello being piloted to his 2nd CC by co-owner Rachel at HAS under breed specialist Lynda Havard & Serenaker Sirocco winning his 1st CC at WELKS under breed specialist Marie Richmond.

2016 My friend & mentor Eleanor Bothwell passed away in June, the day my Archie x Belle litter were born, the pups were all named with the 'Ell or Hell theme & I hoped they would do my good friend proud. The Beagle Club was good to us with Dizzy winning BCC & BIS under Sally Kimber & Barbara Roderick & Archie BVIS under Stephen Seymour & Barbara Roderick.

CRUFTS saw Miss Betty win the MPB class, this turned out to be our last show of the year! We lost Pixie suddenly in March, her zest for life is certainly missed by us all. During the lull in the shows we took the opportunity to welcome 2 new litters Dizzy to Harrison & Ellie to Endeavoured. We are delighted with both litters & have kept a boy and a girl from each. The year ended on a very sad note with the loss of Blondie, she lived life to the full and gave us 3 beautiful champion children in Figaro, Fashion & Maid in America. Goodbye sweet girl.

2021 Just when we thought things couldn't get worse we lost Archie at the very start of the New Year. What an amazing boy he was, the first ever winner of POTY, TOP PUPPY ALL BREEDS 2007 & Runner up KCJW stakes 2008 he will be very much missed. His children & grand children continue to please us & with luck his son may gain his crown when shows ever return.
