The judge wrote the following about her judgement of the Gundog Group:

“My thanks go to the Officers and Committee of Driffield Agricultural Society for inviting me to judge the Gundog Group at their Championship Show and for the hospitality that they showed to me.

In addition to my four placings, I shortlisted the English Setter, German Wirehaired Pointer, Irish Setter, Clumber Spaniel and Irish Water Spaniel.

Group 1. The Golden Retriever, NL Ch Lux Ch Ger VDH Int Ch Velvenya Vogue of Ramchaine JW.  Bitch with a lovely feminine head, good outline and angulation, short coupled body, in lovely coat and condition. Really filled the eye, looking the part both standing and moving.

Group 2. The German Shorthaired Pointer, Sh Ch Barleyarch Paxo JW. Well proportioned head, deep body, stifles well let down, really covered the ground when moving.

Group 3. The Welsh Springer Spaniel, Sh Ch Ferndel Aeron Magregor. The last time I judged the Group I gave it to this dog and his great balance throughout, good head and eye and sound movement still make him the quality dog that he is. 

Group 4. The English Springer Spaniel, Trimere Tough Cookie. A young bitch I recently considered for top honours when judging the Breed, with lovely work in her head, good neck, shoulders and topline, and true movement.”

Summertime Sun

Sebastian and the dogs enjoy making the most of sunny days and lovely weather before September comes to an end and the wind, cold, rain and darkness of the autumn months  set in – pictured  watching steam trains, walking by Medemblik Harbour, having fun in mud swamps, swimming in the sea.... and blowing bubbles !!


On a sader note this month we said goodbye to our  beloved “Jiorjia”
Sh Ch Ramchaine Rubellite JW – she spent her last 4 years deaf and lopsided following a stroke in  April 2009 leading to a vestibular problem,  she was the first homebred “Ramchaine” UK Show Champion  winning her KC Junior Warrant,  4 x CCs & BIS at the United Retriever Club Championship Show, and above all was our great friend and special family member:


Jiorj was lucky to grow up spending most days swimming in a heated hydrotherapy pool while Charmaine worked at ‘Trim & Swim’.


Jiorj pictured at the beginning of September 2013 aged 12.5years

 “Jiorjie Peorgie Pudding and Pie
Left this world and made us Cry
Our Ray of Sun has said Goodbye
And Joined her Friends up in the Sky
She Kissed the Hearts of All who knew her
Her Memories now holding Dear to Treasure
In my arms she slipped away
In my Heart Forever to Stay”

Our Summer Project is Completed – the 3 x dog runs are revamped with new fencing and re-surfacing.
