|The final "founder" was Sedbergh Mitzi, a Sir Gay granddaughter of Petitcote
breeding. She was bred to Thomas by her owner and Jean acquired two of the pups, Yorick and Yolanda. As both were bred, we normally regard Mitzi rather than Yolanda as a founder.
What followed might be described as very close line-breeding, often involving father-daughter (Kenneth to Calypso and their daughter, Sybil) and mother-son crosses (Genevieve to Thomas Too, and then to their son, Xcellente, and finally to gransdson Fitzherbert). This is especially evident in Mitzi's line, while Lulu's represents more "conservative" line breeding (e.g. instead of breeding Kenneth to his mother, Zara, he was bred to her granddaughter Zandra).
