  • A litter - Papillon's named with an AGE theme.   This litter had 3 girls and 1 boy.  Guilcroft Age of Innocence has gone to live in her forever home in the Central West.  Guilcroft Age of Reason is being campaigned nearby.

This is Part One of the story - Our story A to Z - wth some lovely photos!!

When we had our first Border Terrier litter we decided to name the puppies each with a name starting with A.   

Each following litter was then to increment to the next letter of the alphabet.  
Our story begins with A and now is up to Z.  The alphabet is now complete. 
If you want the full story go to the bottom of this page and work up but if you want the current information first start with the litter appearing below.  We will update as we have more puppies.
