BIS RBIS UKC Grand Ch. MBISS ISWS Ch. Gryffyn's Aeyrie Empire
Deuce has been an amazing representative of our hopes and dreams, and our breeding program here at Gryffyn's Aeyrie. He is a multiple regional specialty winner as well as 2-times National Specialty (SilkenFest) Best Opp and a UKC Best in Show winner at the prestigious UKC Gateway national shows. He is the #1 UKC Silken Windhound, and #3 All-Breed, for the year 2014, and at the time of this writing is still at that top spot for 2015. This will be his first litter for Gryffyn's Aeyrie.
Gryffyn's Aeyrie Mistral Wind
Missi is our little darling and cutesy-poo expert. She has hardly been shown thanks to her tendency to have a totally different gait on leash than while in the yard - she's a tad wild. So we just enjoy her company at home. Despite her silly quirks, she did earn a Best Puppy in Specialty at BooFest back in her youth. She is a total cuddlebug and love sponge. Her first litter (with Darkun)gave us a singleton, Squish, who shares many of her mother's characteristics and notions.

The following are plans where we have confirmed the sires/dams - it may be a while before the breeding actually takes place. Timing will depend upon circumstances and feasibility, but we will update this area as plans progress.
Beast / Nox
Ch. Gryffyn's Aeyrie Party Animal
Beast is the son of our homebred sweetheart J/T, BIF DC Gryffyn's Aeyrie Bringin' Sexy Back, SC GRC FCh, and our darling Demi, Ch. Promises Starstruck, from Jackie Corsette. He is a devoted and loving "mama's boy" and one of the silliest boys here at the Aeyrie, outshined only by Solo.
Ch. Gryffyn's Aeyrie Nox, SC
Batman / Boo
Batman (Ch. Del Sol Joker's Gamble) is owned by Dr. Susan Van de Water. He is a goofy boy and so well put together. If he will hop off the "happy train" every once in a while, he will float around the ring with the most elegant power. He has a fabulous, friendly temperament and has just what Boo needs inside and out.
Picture coming soon!
Ch. Gryffyn's Aeyrie Boudicca
She's beautiful. She's silly. And she's full of herself. A daughter of our exquisite Sassi (SBIS Am. Can. Ch. Gryffyn's Aeyrie Alegria, SC JOR LCM) and the most handsome Matrix (Ch. Teine Unstable Force, SC), Boo is a force to be reckoned with. She is very opinionated and gets away with it thanks to her "cute factor" - she's cute and she knows it, and she uses it to her advantage. She was Reserve Winners Bitch and Best Bred-by Exhibitor in Specialty show at the RMBC Specialty. We haven't had a chance to special her much due to monetary restraints - but you can catch at ringside every once in a while, usually at a specialty show.

DC Gryffyn's Aeyrie Here for You, SC GRC FCh
This will be a repeat of our July 2014 litter (the U2 Litter)! There was so much demand that we decided to let these two have another tryst. The litter has had their share of success before the age of 1 year, with Herc taking Best Opp in Puppy Sweeps/Best Puppy in Specialty and Reserve Winners Dog at the 2015 SilkenFest National Specialty Show, completing his ISWS Championship at 9 months of age, and then an Award of Merit at the 2015 SWTT Regional Specialty; and sister Corki taking Best Opp Puppy in Specialty at SF2015 to her brother.
If you are interested in a puppy from this breeding, I would suggest you get on the list early!
BISS ISWS Ch. RBIS UKC Grand Ch.
Gryffyn's Aeyrie Stop and Stare
Pasha is a multi-year Top Ten UKC Grand Champion Silken Windhound as well as the 2013 and 2014 Best of Breed Winner of the Top Ten Invitational. He also finished out the year 2013 as UKC's #1 Silken Windhound. He is a multiple Best Bred-by in Specialty Winner and Specialty Reserve Winners, including the 2012 SilkenFest National Specialty. In September at the Ohio Classic specialties, he won Best in Specialty from the BBE class, completing the requirements for his ISWS Championship.
Pasha's sire Gabe is also a Top Ten UKC Grand Champion as well as multiple specialty winner, a Best Opposite winner at the SilkenFest National (2012), multiple Award of Merit recipient, and a Best Bred-by in Specialty.
UKC Ch. Gryffyn's Aeyrie Radio GaGa
" Velvet "
Velvet is sister to the incomparable Deuce (BIS RBIS UKC Grand Ch. MBISS ISWS Ch. Gryffyn's Aeyrie Empire). She is a UKC Champion and is halfway to earning her Grand - she went on hiatus for the duties of motherhood.
Drifter / Squee
ISWS Ch. UKC Grand Ch. Morgandell Vagabond
Drifter is a stunning young male that I have admired for a long time. I was excited to see him in the flesh when Jane and Iola traveled down to Texas for a regional Silken Windhound Regional Specialty, and eagerly went over him.
BISS ISWS Ch. UKC Grand Ch. Gryffyn's Aeyrie Truly, Madly, Deeply
Our silly girl, and paternal half-sister to Deuce, Squee is such a joy. Her happy attitude shines through in the show ring, and she exudes such joy and cuteness from the time she opened her eyes, thereby earning her call name.
We are hoping for flashy, happy, showy pups from this litter with exquisite Silken Windhound type and exceptional movement.
Darkun / Onyx
Gryffyn's Aeyrie Hell Bent for Leather
UKC Ch. Gryffyn's Aeyrie Bring on the Night
Onyx is a daughter of Best in Show-winning UKC Ch. Gryffyn's Aeyrie Serenity ("Siren"). She is a heavily saddled and sabled gold.
Oliver / Rubi
Firebird Clayborn Sea Dragon
Oliver is a lovely young male that I noticed from postings by his breeder/owner Cathi of Clayborn Kennels. He is a lovely match in type for Rubi - hoping that he adds that touch of elegance that she needs, being something of a "sturdy girl." We are hoping for a Fall 2015 tryst.In the meantime we look forward to watching Oliver mature and his coming show career.
