The first Pyrenean Mountain Dog arrived at Tarascon in 1988. Isaba soon wound herself around our hearts and became an integral part of our family. In 1990 she whelped a litter of six, four of whom became show dogs and are all champions. Her daughter Luka was soon joined by a young male Yoda and both grew up and competed at shows together under the watchful eye of Isaba. Both had many successes at the shows especially Yoda who became a group winner. Their first litter produced seven pups, two of whom stayed with their parents and Grandmother. Merlot and Leah joined their parents in the show ring and were soon being noticed. Both became champions as well as group and show winners. Several years later a litter of eight was whelped and Misty joined the rest of the family. She was also successful in the show ring and whelped her first litter of 7 girls in April1999.  Her daughter Ayla  then joined us and followed in the footsteps of her parents and grandparents in the show ring. In April 2001 Misty's second litter was born. We kept Frodo who soon made his mark in the show ring and taking Tarascon's fame to even greater heights. Ayla's first litter was born in March 2002. One lone pup, Stryder. In 2003 she has whelped another litter, this time 4 boys. Of this litter we kept a blonde boy we have called The Snowman. He continues to wave the Tarascon flag with group and show wins.  We also see the arrival of Willow, a daughter of Frodo at this time. This arrival renewed the long association we have had with the Ariege kennel. In 2005 Ayla whelped a litter of 9 from which we have the elegant Erin. Willow and Merlot's daughter Cecille joined us in  2008 and is emulating her parent's success. Only two New Zealand bred Pyreneans have achieved the ultimate prize in the Allbreed show ring. The coveted Best in Show prize. Both those dogs can be seen on this site. Frodo and Merlot.
