Parisfield Brussels Griffons are healthy, happy, adorable American Kennel Club registered Brussels Griffons. They earn championships in AKC competitions.
This page is for Parisfield Brussels Griffons -- all the darling, sweet Griffies who have enriched the lives of their owners over the years. Some of our Griffs have won breed championships, agility titles and other awards. Some are therapy dogs and visit the sick in hospitals. But most are the constant and beloved companions of their owners. They are the happy face the owner sees at the end of a long day, or the silly face that makes the owner laugh, or the sad face that wants to comfort you when you are feeling low. Every Griff is different, but they are all the same in wanting to be our best friends.
Beautiful Amara is a champion! She is a daughter of Vanyatta and Kittichai. So proud of her as she won on a Specialty weekend. She is truly a beautiful Griffon.
Home from another Brussels Griffon specialty show weekend with more trophies for my griffies! Skyler is now a Champion of Record -- he won two more 5 point majors at the American Brussels Griffon Association Roving Specialty Show weekend! So proud of him. He loves to show, holds his head high and carries himself like a body builder! Amara won Reserve Winners Bitch; she doesn't get points for that but it was the equivalent of a 5 point win!
Photos from around the farm -- Neva is sleepy on the bed. Czar, Casey and Duet have some breakfast. Baily & Breanna groom puppies. Crew from the electric company trims tree branches on our road. Viva stops to pose. Czar weighs in, still under 3 pounds at 12 weeks. This photo of me and Czar is one of our most-liked Instagram posts! A NY friend snapped this photo on the subway of a young woman with a Griff and a Frida Kahlo bag.
Puppies, puppies, puppies! So much fun to come home to these darlings. As I unpacked my suitcase, little Czar jumped into it! He is preparing for his new life in Aruba. Bobby will be leaving us soon for San Francisco. Two others, Kaiser and Duet, are staying on the farm to hopefully become our next generation of winners!

We came home with lots of trophies for our weekend in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Two Brussels Griffon specialty shows were held with a big entry of 18. At the first show, our lovely Amara (daughter of Tot) won a 5 point major -- that the biggest award you can win at one show. It means you beat a lot of dogs, not just a few. At the second show, our handsome stud Skyler was the winner! So proud of these beautiful dogs! And my handler & groomer, Ely Betancourt.
Our weekend in Deland was most successful. On Saturday, our lovely puppy Carson won 4 points! And on Sunday, our young adult Skyler won 4 points. Many friendly Brussels Griffon people on hand. The entry was 16, very big for Florida. People respect the two judges, Jason Hoke and Alan Odum.
At the show in Deland, having lots of fun! Our puppy Carson won 4 points. All our Griffs were winners in our eyes! Than back to the hotel. We show again tomorrow.
Update: There are three good families offering to take in the Anatolian boy. We'll conduct interviews & he'll have a trial period with one or perhaps all of them. Thanks to everyone who responded.

My friend Pnina Ramati Frank is visiting from Israel. She is a great help with puppy training & working around the farm. She is an artist who did the two works above -- the small figure in the round is Joanie, the two are Skyler the red smooth and Honey the red rough. The first paintings she's ever done of Griffs and they are great! She is experimenting in gouache which is a method of painting using opaque pigments ground in water and thickened with a glue-like substance. So beautiful!

Two show photos arrived from the photographers in the mail today. The black is our Parisfield Tiny Bubbles, with Baily Libengood handling. The red is our adorable small male Noah, now Champion Noah of North Star du Grand Cuzac bred by Marie Villeval.
We love watching little puppies in the kitchen. They always find something to do.
Leon's toy design of the day. His owner Peggy says he makes this one a lot. July 21, 2019.
Sunday morning naps on the farm. It's too hot to play outside all day. We're waiting till evening.
We've been amazed at the intelligence of our puppy Leon, who lives with his owner Peggy Payne. Leon creates geometrical shapes with his toys! He evens the spacing and places them in squares and rectangles.
Dog brains aren't supposed to be able to handle complex tasks necessary to make shapes. But Leon does in every day. Peggy wrote to me two weeks ago, "So, I come home and Leon positioned his toys parallel to the chair. I return two hours later, and he’s positioned them perpendicular to the chair. My boy is a mathematical genius. (Pardon the messy beard; he just ate his dinner.)"

The smooth girl is my darling Blair as a baby -- happy to have her granddaughters with me now. The rough is Nobbin. He was much older than Blair but grew to only six pounds. Blair grew to 12. Two great loves.
Gouache by Israeli artist Pnina Ramati Frank - she is experimenting with painting Griffies. This is Josh, who will soon be on his way to San Francisco to live with a human Josh!
12 week old puppy Finn meets 4 week old puppies. Under close supervision, of course. The babies didn't know there was any other Griffon in the world except their mom! Finn was gentle with them.
Wonderful results at the big shows in Tampa last weekend! Skyler was Winners Dog & little black Bubbles was Winners Bitch, shown by our excellent young handler Olivia Betancourt, 3 1/2 years old. She is a natural with dogs. Then, our handsome Noah was Best of Breed in a big entry over many champions! Noah excels in soundness, square body, level topline, and excellent head. We are particularly proud because Breanna Miller was handling him for the first time! She is new to dog shows. Way to go, Breanna!
New little guy on the farm Alfie won the Puppy Toy Group in Tampa today! He is a darling son of Imgosbull Pay the Piper. We're so proud of him! Lots of competition but he strode around the ring with an air of self-importance that charmed the judge and everyone else, too!

Our lovely French boy, Noah, finished his championship Sunday at the Toy Club of Central Florida. This little guy loves being in the ring. He had a blast at the show. He has sired a beautiful puppy for us with his perfect small ears! We're very happy with him. Champion Noah of North Star du Grand Cuzac bred by Marie Villeval.
Big congratulations to Ann Dunn for the championship of her Alice, who is from my bloodlines! Her name is Ch. Parisfield N' Adria's Adventures in Wonderland. Her sire is Ch. Parisfield World on Fire, a very handsome guy. Good work! And Alex Wheeler groomed Alice for show beautifully which is hard to do! They are a great team.
This little girl, Elsie, is our miracle child. She was born with a birth defect called PDA, which makes her heartbeat sound like a washing machine. Dr. Jennifer Brisbois diagnosed it and sent us to Dr. Callum Hay in Tampa. He performed HEART SURGERY on this little 3 pound girl! She came out of it and was recovering, when suddenly came down with pneumonia. Dr. Hay and his wonderful staff gave her round-the-clock care, as this is usually fatal in such a small puppy. She started to recover, then switched to the care of Dr. Jenn, and fully recovered and came home! We are amazed at the knowledge and skill of our veterinarians, Dr. Brisbois & Dr. Hay.
PDA is caused when a valve carrying oxygen to the heart fails to close when the puppy is born & can use its lungs to carry oxygen. It is a mechanical fault, not genetic.

Mary demonstrates how we train the Griffs to pose for the show ring. Little Tucker is encouraged to stop and pose when she says, "Look!" Then he's praised. When he sits, he's encouraged to get up, then praised for doing it correctly.
Fantastic news -- our beautiful Parisfield Travis of Vale Vue is now an AKC Champion! Travis chalked up his final three points at the Peach Blossom Circuit in Georgia. He was handled by Ely Betancourt. Travis was bred by my friend Norma Sellers & me from her darling Minnie. Travis' brother Big Mike lives with Norma and Buddy and their jet-setting life between Fenwick Island and the Bahamas. Both boys are so smart and so sweet. Travis already won titles for being smart -- his CGC (Canine Good Citizen) and Tricks! So proud of him.
Our dynamite team of Olivia Betancourt & Beryl the smooth Griffon had another great weekend at the dog shows! This time in Miami. They won 3 more points towards Beryl's championship!
Puppies excited to get up from their nap and go out to play. (Yes, there is a French Bulldog puppy in there! She likes to play, too.)
Great news from the dog show in Lakeland on Saturday -- our male, Travis was Winners Dog & Best of Winners and our young girl Griff was Winners Bitch. Each won 1 point towards their championship.
Photo introduces my new handler, Olivia Betancourt, in the grooming area, preparing Beryl for the ring. A dynamite team!
We work hard to make sure every puppy who leaves Parisfield is leash trained and carrier trained. They will face the excitement and stress of meeting their new family and getting used to a new place and traveling. If they already know these things, that is less stress for them. We practice constantly.

Felt Griff created by Anna Marie Repko - I am honored to be gifted with this extraordinary creation! It is very painstaking work to craft this. Anna, you are really talented. I look at this and smile all day long!
The gang gathers.
This is darling Edgar, who lives with his owner Cindy Shannon in South Carolina. When he lived here, we called him Twinnie -- he was a fun puppy with so much personality! Cindy has 3 smooth Griffs which makes her tops in my book -- I love the smooths! They have so much expression. They are adorable to watch and you never have to groom! We love roughs, too, but because 8 roughs live here, we are constantly grooming. Big kiss to Edgar!
