Pippa’s 3rd Birthday

Pippa (sitting on the left) & sister Mitzi are seen here on Pippa’s 3rd birthday. Pippa is a real character and not afraid of anything. She is full of energy, loves running fast in the fields and playing with Mitzi as well as her toys. Mitzi is 5 years old now and is highly intelligent but much more laid back than Pippa. Mitzi responds and joins in whenever she hears ladies singing opera or anything with high notes.

FOUNDER MEMBER Belstown Bolognese. I live with 3 Bolognese and live in Burgess Hill, West Sussex. I own 3 Bolognese and show the youngest Harry. I also work part time as a support worker. I originally chose the breed for my daughter to show as a Junior Handler, but she has grown up and number of dogs have grown too! I originally trained as a Veterinary Nurse, as well as managing large show/breeding/boarding & quarantine kennels. I progressed to the commercial sector in sales and marketing of pet products, including running my own PR agency for pet related companies. Along with a few other like minded enthusiasts, we started this club in August 2015 as we felt the breed needed an information centre and a friendly group where people could share their views and learn more about the breed, so I started The Bolognese Dog Club UK. I have bred 7 litters, but don't breed currently.
