A look back over 2017


29th December

Fun Video

A snowy morning here today thought I would catch a video of Billy, Gertie and Travis, on my phone.

I am sure I wouldn’t catch them doing this again if I tried.

16th December Happy Birthday Travis

Travis is now 7 years old which makes him a veteran in the dog world. I don’t think he’s looking too bad at all for a 7 year old English Setter, what do you think?

A nice start to November, Travis is the sire to a nice litter of Upperwood English Setter Puppies. Mum Wispa had 5 lovely babies. I shall hope to get some nice photos posted once they grow up.

“Billy” Redhara Billy Whizz stood alone in Yearling Dog and won his first prize under Chris Moorhouse the Dog Judge.

I also took along Upperwood Goldilocks “Goldie” who is bred and owned by Dom & Dawn Goutorbe. Goldie won Limit Bitch, the Bitch CC and Reserve Best in Show under the Bitch Judge Mr Keith Smith.

It was well worth the early start, a great day out.

23rd April English Setter Association Championship Dog Show.

Not showing the dogs this time at ESA. I was kindly asked by the committee of the show if I would like to have a stall for my photography and English Setter Greeting Cards. Dawn Goutorbe was helping me, she did a great job of selling the cards for me while I was outside doing photo shoots with the exhibitors. I think I’ve got quiet a few year book photos and adverts sorted out for people today, I was busy!!

We both really enjoyed the day.
