We currently have two Labrador bitches living with us, one yellow and one black, they are 10 and 6 years old. .
We also share ownership of one of our lovely home bred girls
from our first litter with a super family in France and a black girl bred by the

where she has the fantastic company of a lovely human and canine family.
Arlma Girl of Arghishalee (Hally) 31/03/2003
Hally sadly left us for Rainbow Bridge on 10/12/2013
after a short illness - the Arghishalee household will never be quite the same
Hally was our beautiful chocolate girl, a family pet who
was shown lightly at local open shows. She was hipscored (7/9), elbow
(0) scored, and DNA tested Optigen PRA Clear.
She produced Arghishalee's first two litters to Gowanvale
Run-a-Round in July 2007 and Holmajor Flame in October 2008. .
Carpenny Clovis with Arghishalee (Clover)
Clover was brought in from the Carpenny Kennel to help move
our showing along.
She can be a natural show girl when the mood takes her, and
keeps us on her toes with her wicked antics and cute - "wasn't me mum" looks.
Clover has been hip and elbow scored, and is tested Optigen PRA Clear, sadly,
her hipscore was too high to breed from, however, she was a super showgirl for
us and realy is the darling of the family with her wicked ways and cheeky face
Arghishalee Bronte (Bronte)
Bronte is our beautiful chocolate baby from Hally's second
litter. She is a a petite pretty little lady with a wicked sense of fun
Bronte has been hipscored 3/4, Elbows zero and DNA tested CNM
Clear. She holds a current clear eye certificate (to Nov 2014)
Arghishalee's Sea of Dreams (Dream)
Dream is our beautiful black baby from Hope's first litter. A
new direction for us, she is a lovely little girl with a wicked sense of
fun. Dream is Optigen PRA Clear by Parentage, hip score 5/4, elbows 0.
We have no plans to breed from Dream
Vicford Queen of Hearts Roboshalee (A.I.) - Poppy
Poppy is from the first litter lovingly bred by Vicford
Labradors and is litter sister to our lovely black boy, Bruce.
Poppy's dad is an International Champion from the world
famous Carpenny Kennel now living in the Netherlands with his owner John.
Her mum is from the internationally known Saranden Kennel. Poppy is
owned jointly with Sarah Robinson from the Roboeljo kennel under our joint
kennel name Roboshalee ("Robo" from Roboeljo and "shalee" from Arghishalee)
and lives with her human and canine family about half an hour from us,
Poppy is an absolute sweetheart with a calm biddable nature and a constant
eagerness to please. She has been lightly shown and taken some nice
results, she is also being trained with the hope of working in the field -
although show bred, she is very agile and demonstrates a strong work ethic
which Sarah hopes to exploit. She will be continue to be shown as and
when time permits. Poppy is hereditarily clear for g-PRA, Hip-scored 2/2 and elbows 0. She has proved herself to be the most fantastic mother.
Arghishalee girls elsewhere
Arghishalee Hope and Ambition (Hope)Hope lives with a lovely family in Stourbridge. She
is a beautiful chocolate baby from Hally's first litter. She was an absolute
joy to live with, with her mums quiet unassuming nature. Hope was
hipscored (7/6) and Elbow scored (0); she is genetically clear for Optigen
g-PRA Clear by parentage, is DNA tested CNM Clear. Hope produced us a
beautiful litter of chocolate and black puppies to
Balrion Weathertop John Barleycorn , from which we have our
lovely black girl, Dream.
Sadly, Hope didn't enjoy motherhood and went into her shell
after her litter. she lost her spark and everything we tried to bring it
back, failed . She is now neutered and living wth a lovely family in
Stourbridge who can give her all the time in the world, and has an extended
canine family who visit often.
We miss her dreadfully but did what we felf was right for
Hope - we get regular updates and photos from her new family.
Arghishalee's French Secrets (Carys)
Carys is a lovely black girl from Hally's first litter. She moved to live
with her new human and canine family in French Secrets in the Haute Garrone,
France at 17 weeks, and was lightly shown taking some nice results.
Sadly, her owner's health stopped her from being able to
show and breed Carys but she was small recompense for the friendship her
family have shown me during very difficult times in my life; Carys
enjoys the most wonderful life that would make any dog jealous with her
owners and her two "canine sisters", 1 black and 1 chocolate Lab. They have acres to run around in as well as their own
