Welcome back to the Aylestone Bulldog Website - the original home of the Aylestone Bulldog!
LOOKING FOR A NEW HOME
Shila, (The Duchess Delight) daughter of Ambrosia (The Jasmine Duchess Georgiana) and Beltane Chase MacKenzie, is looking for a new home. Shila is fawn with a touch of tricolour. She has had a successful litter of pups and is good with children. Phone David on 07400221203 if you can offer Shila a forever home.
Christmas Miracle is still lively and happy several months after being diagnosed with cancer. He is looking to be a father if possible. He is a lovely dog, and entirely suitable to father pups. Phone number on request - email [email protected]
Just a note about pedigrees. Usually pedigrees are on ivory heavy duty paper with a grid and all names in black. However, some pedigrees are in colour on ivory heavy duty paper, with a blue border, and the names of males and females in different colours (blue for dogs, and brownish for bitches). These pedigrees are found among Aylestones, OTBs and Rockhills - they are just the same as the black and ivory ones, and come from Aylestone Bulldogs just the same (it was an experiment but proved very expensive to produce so we reverted to the black and ivory - may try again later (if find some cheaper ink) as they look rather good!).
SAD NEWS OF CAPTAIN KID (Scrappydoo)
We have just learned that A. Captain Kid (known as Scrappy) passed away this morning, 21st September (he was born in April 2004). He was a remarkable dog, who, as a young puppy was not expected to survive. His owners pulled him through, however, helped by his own indomitable spirit and he has lived to reach twelve, and fathered several litters of puppies. Captain Kid was the son of Redgrit's Dogmatix at Aylestone and Aylestone's White Rose and he was brother to the equally well known Aylestone's Captain Hornblower, and half-sibling to Gloroious Goliath the Red and uncle to Sir Tigerous. Mr and Mrs Willoughby's pups are the latest of his descendents. He is hunting in the fields of Elysium, he is hunting in the fields of the Lord.

KEEPING THE FLAME ALIVE
Though no longer breeding Aylestones we wish to keep alive the flame of Aylestone. In order to help this along Jenny wants to help people to find a stud dog, or a dam requiring a stud. She also wants to make sure that Ayestones in need of rescue get good homes.
The idea is to keep a register of studs and dams so that you can find a good mate for your dog in your area, or as near as possible. Always remember, when considering a stud dog, that it is necessary to take the dam to the sire as the dog is less likely to perform away from home, and 2 or 3 matings is usually recommended.
Register of Studs
If you wish your dog to father puppies send us a photo, his pedigree name or number and contact details.
Register of Dams
If you wish to have have puppies with your dog the best thing to do is first consult us, as age is important. Once decided on when you want puppies a photo of the lady in question, with her pedigree name or number and your contact details can go on the site.
Dogs in need of a home are currently found under Dogs on this site. If you wish to re-home your pet because of changes in circumstances a photo, his/her pedigree, whether or not spayed or castrated and contact details can go on the site. The aim is to find a good, responsible home for every Aylestone.
The last newsletter was that for Easter. The next will appear in August. The newsletter goes out by email to owners of registered Aylestones or dogs on the HAL register. Registration is easy: ring Jenny on 0116 2442313 or email [email protected] The newsletter is full of information, pictures, stories and advice and accepts articles, pictures or stories from members.
Selected newsletters can be downloaded and read from the site. Enjoy!
We are very sorry to announce that Geronimo, son of Bullseye, has died. He was 12 years old and had been doing well until just lately. He is hunting in the fields of Elysium, he is hunting in the fields of the Lord. Also lost to us is Stella (Bam Bam Aylestone's Beauty, daughter of Royal Iris the Rainbow and Longbow Victorious), belonging to Mandy Connor. Also sadly passed on is The Duke of Marlborough, son of Bullseye and Princess Dorothea. They hunt in the fields of Elysium and their lines go onward.
Just an update for everyone! We have had a sabbatical whilst waiting for young breeding stock to mature. While waiting Jim wrote his autobiography of his life in the Shetland Islands (where the first Aylestones were born), The Ratscape Chronicles - The Autobiographical Ramblings of an Outcast, and put it on Amazon where it can be bought in full colour or black and white. Jenny published three books of poetry: Missives From Periclean Athens (poems about Greek and Roman myths), Earthbound (about modern life) and Flags of Renunciation (poems about Indian legends) on Amazon as well, and began to compile animal poems and stories for publication. Some of these animal stories and poems have appeared in the Newsletter, but there are many others, funny, sad, inspirational, ghostly. As soon as the compilation is complete and illustrated it too will go on Amazon and be available to buy.
While all this was happening the website went south. It has taken months to build a new one - but here it is!
Meanwhile our other project was maturing. A new line of Aylestone Bulldogs, which would be black or blue, or black/blue flowered, with a blue tongue. Black Aylestones are rare, but there are a few and they have been spectacular. Now there is a third generation of Aylestones which breed black or flowered with blue tongues. They are called Rockhills to differentiate them from their more colourful cousins and puppies are now available.
We hope Aylestones will go from strength to strength in 2014 but just to remind everyone: if it does not have an Aylestone Bulldog pedigree it is NOT an Aylestone. Aylestones are registered at the home kennel, by Jenny Byrne, the Secretary. No other pedigrees are valid and it is not an Aylestone without a valid pedigree.
We continue to keep the Old Tyme Register of half-Aylestones, giving these dogs provenance, and have a data base of Old Tyme/Aylestone pedigrees for checking authenticity and accuracy.
Registrations are slightly fraught just now as we are installing a new printer, the old one having decided not to print anymore. We will get registrations out as soon as possible.
New! See Jim's blog at http://contactaylestonebulldog.blogspot.co.uk/
