Gennasus On The Right Road (Des to his friends) is Hebe's pup by Louis. He is a very pretty boy and the photo of him as a puppy, below, graced the front cover of the Northern and Eastern Papillon Club's calendar.

It's very difficult to get a decent shot of him standing, he does it beautifully out on walks but thinks showing is a bit of a bore and doesn't always give of his best in the ring. Discovering ladies has helped a bit so I may yet be able to show you Desmond at his best.

Despite his intermittent showmanship, he managed to qualify for this year's (2008) Crufts (we were held up in traffic and missed his class!) and he has also qualified for next year(we missed the entry date!). The photo below at 17 months was taken when he had been awarded Best Opposite Sex (to Rosa's BOB) at Highland, having beaten his father in the process.


Desmond takes his first Best of Breed and G2 at Lochaber, October 2008.

After a spell out of the ring, due to his broken leg, he makes a successful return at North of Scotland Toydog in May 2009 and wins his two classes. He'd lost interest by the time it came to Best Dog though!

At Bon Accord in July '09 he takes his second BOB and a first group win.

Highland was his next show, just a few weeks later in July, and he takes another BOB (Pansy was BOS) and G2 this time.

Cover star! Such a cute pup
