German W/h Pointers - week 25Updated : 16/06/2017

HI FOLK, I’m new to the job, so bear with me while I get some order to the notes.      It’s been a busy time with both working tests and shows, so if I have missed anything it has not been intentional and if you have any news that I have missed then please email me on the email below before 1...

BARBARA has asked me to remind you about the seminar being held on Aug 14 at Middlewich Community Centre as there are only a few places left, so people need to get their cheques to her as soon as possible to secure their place. The speaker for the judging seminar is Barbara Rigby with Ruth Martin, Norma Ellis and Barbara Rig...

German W/P Pointers - week 20Updated : 13/05/2016

LOTS TO report this week as I’ve missed the deadlines! Firstly show news: WELKS saw my Sh Ch Bareve Bontebokskraal won BNSC under Miss E Haapaniemi and then gained his second G3 at WELKS under gundog specialist Kathy Gorman.      Birmingham National saw gundog specialist Anne Webster judge an ent...

German W/h Pointers - week 16Updated : 14/04/2016

THE WIREHAIRS are doing well out working so far this spring. At the Hampshire Gundog spring pointing test held at the Eastbury Estate in Dorset with judges Allan Hender and Guy Bagshaw there were three Wirehairs graded. Clare Wigfield and her Mustwork Quinto and Graham Doe and his Burtonmeadow Beck both were graded good with...

German W/h Pointers - week 15Updated : 08/04/2016

EASTER has come and gone and I believe there has been some successes in the show ring over the weekend but the only one I have details on is from Jennie Brewer. The day after coming out of hospital she attended Cornwall Gundog where her Sh Ch Bareve Bardhek at Edhenky won BOB and then went on to win BIS3, a massive tonic for...

German W/h Pointers - week 13Updated : 23/03/2016

CRUFTS is over once again, but it was a great day to catch up with both home and overseas friends whom we only see once a year at Crufts.      Our ring was a late start which enabled the Skarvister team of Wirehairs, belonging to David and Fiona Johnson, to showcase our breed in the gamekeeper classes....

German W/h Pointers - week 10Updated : 04/03/2016

SOME SHOW news to start with: lovely spring morning for Mid Western Gundog, which returned to Malvern for its show. Good day for the breed when my Sh Ch Bareve Bundora won RBIS and my Bareve Bruevinka won BPIS under Richard Bott (breed) and Martyn Ford (BIS). It was great to see Jennie Brewer ringside who had been ‘spr...

German W/h Pointers - week 8Updated : 18/02/2016

IN THE absence of any news from people I have a little brag of my own. My Bareve Bruevinka won BOB/BP, PG1 and BPIS at Pontefract open show under breed judge Michelle Nuttall, group judge Barbara Stamp and BPIS judge Gavin Robertson.      Earlier this week a group of us had a hunting, pointing, flushin...

German W/h Pointers - week 6Updated : 08/02/2016

MY APOLOGIES for the missing breed notes – I lost track of time and missed the deadline so I will try harder!      The end of the shooting season has passed and once again GWPs featured in the awards of the last few field trials of the season. At the GSPC open at Stow Bardolph, judged by Tony Rus...

German W/h Pointers - week 4Updated : 22/01/2016

I’M NOT sure just how many years Jenny has written these breed notes but having enjoyed reading them for a long time I hope that people will keep me informed so I can make this column as informative as I can. Thank you Jenny for your input over the years.      The first set of breed classes at ch...

German W/h Pointers - week 3Updated : 18/01/2016

BOSTON is the first championship show of the year held at Peterborough. Sadly it doesn’t rotate which means that gundog day is always on a Friday. For me it’s a little too early in the year to start taking holidays! Roy Garner judged AVNSC gundogs and awarded BD and BNSC to Sh Ch Bareve Bontebokskraal, who was la...

German W/h Pointers - week 2Updated : 08/01/2016

AS EVER not much news to report this week. I for one am looking forward to the shows starting again and getting out and about. Next week there will news from Boston and Manchester the week after.      I was fortunate enough to visit Dukeries Gundog. I think there was only one GWP entered – such a...

German W/h Pointers - week 1Updated : 04/01/2016

I TRUST you all enjoyed the festivities and had the opportunity to appreciate the spring-like weather some of us have been fortunate to benefit from? Our thoughts and love of course to those in Wales and the North of England suffering with flooding, I haven’t heard that any Wirey folk have been effected, but I’m ...

German W/h Pointers - week 52Updated : 18/12/2015

THERE were no classes or CCs for GWPs at LKA, however the Johnstons triumphed with Ned Charmer Vd Tuindershof with Glenquin taking BNSC on the Sunday, with entrants from the hound, terrier and gundog groups.      It was a lovely show, with so much space between benches and lots of lovely trade stands. ...

German W/h Pointers - week 51Updated : 10/12/2015

THERE is so little news around at the moment and I really don’t like going on about what’s happening in my life, so my apologies that these notes have been absent for the last couple of weeks.      I write a few days before LKA, which I am sure many of you will visit even if you aren’...

German W/h Pointers - week 48Updated : 20/11/2015

THE GUNDOG Association of Scotland was the next on the trial for those willing to travel the distance. The weather seemed to be good for those travelling up there and not so good for those travelling back. It would seem most people weren’t able to avoid the wind and heavy rain. It was lovely to see Doug Martin judging ...

German W/h Pointers - week 47Updated : 12/11/2015

SHARON and Ch Bareve Bonzabaai won a third – the only award given at the GSPS novice trial!      There doesn’t appear to be much news around at the moment so I was delighted to receive an email from Wendy Oxman regarding GWPC club affairs. It would seem that the club has elected to change b...

German W/h Pointers - week 46Updated : 05/11/2015

NOT TOO much news this week, these are your notes and I will gladly receive anything you wish to submit for them, so please feel free to contact me, email is below.      I was fortunate enough to be invited to the Eukanuba champion stakes final. This is of course the second year on the trot that the GW...
