She is by Michael Gallagher's 2010 International Champion Cap, and out of Glencregg Tess who is a daughter of James McGee's 2011 World Chanpion Becca. Gyp is great great niece of Rob, as her maternal grandfather is out of Michael Gallagher's Gyp.
I have kept a bitch out of her, by Jackie Goulder's Killiebrae Joss - Nidderdale Gale.
Gyp runs best for my 10 year old daughter, she has learnt so much from her, but we can't trust Gyp to behave away from home, she thinks it's all too much fun. It's a pity as getting dogs to run for kids and behave is not an easy task.
She is just a baby here, but she has developed into a nice bitch.
Why I got Gyp
Two weeks before Rob ran at the 2008 World Trial, he needed to be castrated due to health reasons. He got to fitness in time to take his well-earned run at Llandeilo, but it was sad as I hadn't got around to getting a pup from him. Well, orders were put in to Ireland and Holland to get a related pup. Michael Gallagher's Gyp is Rob's litter sister, I had seen her running on the Hebridean Circuit in 2004. One of her litters was to Aidan Gallagher's Bill, who I always enjoy watching at work. In this litter was Serge van der Sweep's Jim, Seamus Gallagher's Glen, and Gilbert Marshall's Scot. So I was trying to get a pup related to one of them. I might still do that but Aidan put me on to Cath Krakowski who has a daughter of another brother from that litter, out of Becca (yes, James Magee's Becca). The daughter had just had a litter to Michael Gallagher's Cap. Again, love watching the dog, and always wanted something from his sire Bobby Dalziel's Cap. So I booked a pup, BEFORE Cap won the 2010 International. Sandra wants her, so we will be sharing her. And she works for my daughter Alex.
