It is with great sadness that we have to report the death of Pauline Malins on Friday 5th February 2021. She had recently celebrated her 85th birthday in January.
We offer our sincere condolences to Pauline's family and friends.
'Pauline had been in hospital for a short while, she had not enjoyed good health for some time. Pauline was a great friend of mine and we spent many hours travelling to shows, committee meetings and various other events. Of course she was on our committee for many years and ran the shop and was known to everyone in the English Setter world' Secretary : Stella Oliver.
Pauline's connection with Fran and Tony Grimsdell's Tattersett kennel began in 1971 when she bought an Attleford bitch from Fran's mother Mrs Jean Thomas. For some now forgotten reason Mrs Thomas felt that Pauline should have the litter brother Attleford Mulberry. Owned by Pauline and handled by Fran, Mulberry gained his title winning 3 CC's. Pauline and Fran became close friends and travelled to shows together until Fran moved to Norfolk in 1999. Memorable dogs owned or jointly owned with Fran were Tattersett Blakeney (Oscar), Tattersett Toe Tapper (Bodie), Sh Ch Tattersett Dutch Gold (Raffles), winner of 20 CC's, 18 RCC's and 7 BOB's, and Tattersett Rainbow Quest (Tiger). Her last English Setter was Taukel Gold Quest at Bramstorm (Merlin), jointly owned with Stella Oliver.
Pauline was a member of the ESA for around 50 years, 27 of those being an active member on the ESA committee. She will be remembered for her dedication to the breed and Association, also the time spent running a successful ESA shop. We will all miss her friendship and genial personality.
Vulnerable British and Irish Breeds Press release
Following the popularity of the Vulnerable British and Irish Breeds Competition in 2019, the Kennel Club has announced that it will take place again this year with a new format, culminating in a grand final at Crufts 2021.
In a move designed to broaden the scope of the competition and offer more opportunities to qualify, BOB winners from the Scottish Kennel Club (May), Welsh Kennel Club and Belfast championship shows will now be eligible to compete in the final, along with BOB winners from the usual selected group championship shows.
Also in this press release the Kennel Club has an article about 'Puppies for sale: finding the right dog' and is concerned with protecting those breeds of dog which are of British origin and are considered to be vulnerable i.e. those whose numbers are declining and whose status within the world of dogs has diminished over a number of years.

Further details of this scheme are available on the Kennel Club website.
