BREEDER/JUDGE & FOUNDER MEMBER
Chris Thatcher owner of the Devonia affix. I have shown dogs now for over 30 years. I have owned Bolognese now for in excess of 20 years and I currently have 4 Bolognese of various ages. My dogs are firstly pets and secondly Show Dogs. All breeding stock are health tested. My dogs are all kept in the house, none are kennelled. All of my dogs originate from Italian lines. I have previously been successful in the show ring having had a Best Dog and Best Bitch at Crufts in the past. I have also had two Best in Show at the Bolognese Club Show the latest of which was September 2015 with Devonia's Red Hot Summer (Rosa). I have cut back on the showing recently due to personal circumstances but am enjoying going to shows as a spectator. I do not breed very often but when I do, I breed, for quality, healthy well tempered puppies. I also write the Bolognese breed notes for the "Our Dogs" newspaper.

Devonia's Red Hot Summer
Rosa was born on a very hot day on 24.06.2014 hence the name Red Hot Summer. She is home bred and I own both Mum and Dad. She is a delightful little dog and has so far exceeded all my expectations in the show ring with a Best in Show at the British Bolognese Club Show in September 2015 and a Best of Breed at LKA under a breed Judge with an entry of 48 in December 2015.
Monty was born on 10.12.14. He is home bred and is a half brother to Rosa, having the same Dad but different Mothers. He again has exceeded all expectations in the show ring. He is a gentle and loving little dog.
Gonni TorreDelle Passere with Devonia
Gonni was born on 05.10.2017 and was imported from Italy. She has been lightly shown and has very recently become a Mother.
