Setters, Gordon - week 8Updated : 16/02/2017

I SEE FROM the KC Breed Records Supplement for the final quarter of 2016 that there were 32 puppies registered from four litters, plus three importations. This brings the total registrations for the year to 263, which is up on the previous two years which were 234 (2015) and 250 (2014).      Only seven d...

This was his 31s...

Setters, Gordon - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

THERE seems to have been a bit of a mix up about the BOB at Boston. The Fosse Data print out put the BB as BOB and this is what appeared in the write-up on the show in the dog papers. However, Liz Ede’s critique appeared in the same papers as the main show report and she stated that the BD, Maggy Halliday’s Ch Ye...

Setters, Gordon - week 3Updated : 13/01/2017

FIRST I must apologise to Pam and John Davies for when, in my notes of Jan 6, I listed the CC winners, I omitted to mention in the list of dogs with one CC their Kalinish Black Kite over Benbreac. He, of course, won the DCC from Russell Mosedale at East of England in July.      We have classes at Bosto...

Setters, Gordon - week 50Updated : 12/12/2016

THERE is a distinct lack of news this week so it looks as though these notes will be the shortest I have ever written!       The only item I have is that at Woolwich and Gil Powell’s Kimgilee Maori Secret went BP and PG4, which is the second such award she has received. The breed was judged ...

Setters, Gordon - week 49Updated : 01/12/2016

I HAVE received from Debra Harker, the following report on the GSA super stakes: “After two years in the planning the final event of our 70th anniversary year was the super stakes and what a night it was – dogs and owners groomed and preened and looking fantastic – we do scrub up quite well!   ...

Setters, Gordon - week 43Updated : 20/10/2016

GUNDOG Society of Wales was shown as having an entry of ten making 12. The results on the internet show that two bitches were absent and that there were only four dogs and three bitches present. I think this must be one of the lowest ever entries for a ch show without CCs. Held at Malvern it is not as though it is at some ou...
