I developed an everlasting love for Beagles in the late 1960s resulting from my family’s interest in the breed and a special fondness for my favourite hound and beloved pet Argentius Trigo. You will probably have observed that my UK Kennel Club Affix TRIECAP is an anagram of Patrice.
I maintain a fervent passion for Beagles and my undeflected objective during the coming decades is to continue being famous for breeding and showing quality Beagles. I will achieve this whilst also demonstrating my well-known commitment to integrity and goodwill in full measure and by enjoying the friendly company and healthy rivalry maintained between fellow Beaglers and my other friends in the dog world. I continue to be captivated by the UK Beagle culture, charm, camaraderie and the ongoing debate and diversity of opinion as to what constitutes a winning show hound. On Championship Show days how we all yearn for that element of surprise and elation when our own beloved hound is chosen, seemingly against all our previous expectations held of the specific event – that’s the encouragement that inspires us all to continue resolutely with our showing campaigns.
