THE SOUTHERN PC’s special event Pointer of the Year 2016 and Pointer Puppy of the Year 2016, was a very enjoyable day.

Pointers - week 5Updated : 27/01/2017

THERE was a big entry of 135/138 at Manchester for Sue Wilkinson (Hurwyn). I see from the show information that Pointers were once again in the small ring in Annex B. Looking at the other breeds assigned to ring 18, on the first day the ring was combined with ring 19 for an entry 98 Ridgebacks. On day two the rings were spli...

APOLOGIES for the lack of notes last week; I do try to send something in each week but got out of sync for the Christmas and new year period.       Jayne Harrison’s Millpoint Simply Scrumptious won PG2 at Stourbridge where the breed judge was Geoffrey Booth. She then started off the new year...

THANK you for your messages and enquiries about Quincy after his accident. He is making excellent progress and it is now just a case of waiting another eight weeks before he can start to put weight on the repaired tendon. I had never realised how many layers of bandages and cotton wool are needed for a heavy-duty dressing. H...

STANDING by the ringside at Setter and Pointer Club, Lesley-Ann Smith mentioned to me that she had been to Discover Dogs to represent the breed so I asked whether she would write something about it for the notes.

Pointers - week 47Updated : 17/11/2016

GBAS HAD an entry of 81/102 for Geraldine O’Driscoll (Fowington). Our entry was the same as the Weimaraners and more than the Cockers, English Setters and GSPs and yet we didn’t have a MP class, which these other breeds did. We therefore had some very young puppies giving a lot away to puppies almost 12 months ol...

Pointers - week 46Updated : 11/11/2016

I AM GOING to break with tradition and start the notes with something other than show results! Well done to Maureen Mitchell (Staxyll) for her excellent letter published in DOG WORLD on Nov 4 entitled ‘Maintaining consistency of type and quality’.
