History of our Breeding
was in 1988 when the first Pyrenean Mountain Dog entered into my life.
In the past I had grown in companionship with three wonderful Scottish Shepherd dogs (Collies)
that I’ll never forget: Laika, Heily and Blue Clarissa.
So my first Pyrenean Mountain Dog, a female with a thick wooly coat,
came to me at two months of age.
She was born in Italy and her name was Nefertiti.
She has been my playmate, my companion
long walks in the mountains, my companion in happy moments.
she was very sweet and loyal with her family.
At four years of age she had her first litter of nine puppies.
This event was an important experience for her and me.
She grew in love from taking care of her sons.
was there to lend a hand, and I learned more about breeding.
one that if possible could come from the Pyrénées, the origin place of the Pyrenean Mountain Dog.
I visited many Kennels and saw many different puppies.
I made my decision for Hamlet du Pic de Marboré (“Navarre”).
He was a wonderful dog and possessed some very special and rare qualities.
His temperament was very sweet, balanced,
and especially endowed with intelligence.
He had a nice head and rare markings of “arrouye” (rust) color on his ears and body.
is a color almost not found on the Pyrenees nowadays.
Navarre’s place of origin is in the heart of the Pyrénées mountains,
near the Col du Tourmalet where his ancestors lived free on the plateaux,
protecting the sheep and their home.
Soon there arrived in my home a French rustic female puppy
the name “Honfleur du Duché de Savoy”.
She was a puppy “full of pep”, lively, very independent, strong,
and with nice blonde/ sand-colored markings on her body.
Honfleur conquered me with her extreme kindness, joy of living,
goodness of heart, and rustic looks.
She was a true “Lady of the mountains”.
enjoyed many unforgettable days with my Pyrenees.
Due to an illness she soon passed away.
Her loss brought me much suffering,
but Navarre and Honfleur helped me to get over those moments. I had to go on…
Amidst dog shows, and my searching and studying of the breed,
the idea came to me of creating a little Kennel.
I began to search for another male puppy in France.
I soon found a very special one. His name was “Highlander de Gabizos”.
I fell in love with his sweetness, with his special expression,
with his very deep and bright eyes.
With his strong structure, small oblique eyes,
very thick coat he appeared to be a bear.
Highlander ( “Cipo”), came from the South Pyrénées
and he possessed the most precious origins.
1994, there arrived “J’Fabliau du Duché de Savoy”, half-sister of
was a female with a dominant temperament and soon became the leader of the pack.
J’Fabliau (“Chica”) has been for me a loyal and a tender companion.
In 1996 Monursita (“Sissi”) was born
the mating between Honfleur and Highlander.
Sissi is my Beauty. She is Elegance and Royalty.
She is Pleasure and Admiration for my eyes.
is my Sweetness….Sissi is my Rose….
with a big space for them came true.
From that time on we lived in open nature, in total peace,
surrounded by big green fields and by the woods.
1999 into our Kennel came Polaire, daughter of Navarre.
Polaire has a sunny temperament, distinct intelligence,
and the “arrouye” markings on her coat.
has maintained the characteristics of her father.
is always very attentive. She understands my every glance.
possesses a strong maternal instinct for her puppies.
has been a “true mummy” for all the dogs that were born afterwards in my
Often there are birds of prey which fly on our property searching for food,
forming almost a perfect ring.
Polaire is our “Lady of the Hawks”, a guardian above all:
she protects our home and puppies, even from birds.
the year 2000 Resol was born.
This female with a reserved and dominant character
my very pleasant companion.
Resol (“Nera”) has always loved to be the centre of attention
is happy when she can pass her time in my home near me.
Her presence transmits serenity and confidence.
In 2001 our Kennel took officially the name “du Royaume d’Ursita”.
In 2002 into my Kennel arrived the sweet Tsunamour
Pyrzillac’s Kennel in Finland.
her blood flows the line of Monursita, her maternal grandmother.
is “joy of living”, kindness, and pure “love’s energy”.
conveys great affection and tenderness.
Her character reminds me very much of Honfleur.
during that year Type d’Elle was born.
Type d’Elle with her “angel’s look”
a kind and sensible soul which exhales serenity and sweetness.
Her expression has a deepness, harmony ,
and clearness which is very majestic.
Her name of Type d’Elle reflects her characteristics.
She is very much like her mother Monursita, particularly in her elegance.
2004 Valmont was born.
is a charming, big, imposing dog.
Calm and proud of himself, conscious of his force,
by little he brought his authority into our Kennel.
He is a good dog but he is also strongly protective
with his females when necessary;
work is to create equilibrium and harmony in the pack.
Valmont is an excellent guardian and he defends with all his might our females and property.
