  • KC press release re:- Vulnerable Breeds

    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.

  • Bournehouse Prints

    pic

    The English Setter Association commissioned Stuart Mallard who is well known for his wildlife and dog pictures to paint in oils Sh Ch Bournehouse Royal Colours and Sh Ch Bournehouse Sea of Dreams in memory of their past Chairman Gordon Williams.

    The ESA committee felt that this was a fitting tribute to Gordon who not only gave much of his time to the Breed and Association, but the Bournehouse name is well-known throughout the dog world both here and abroad. At our recent Championship Show, Penny Williams was presented with the original picture by Stuart and there were many doggy folk there to see the unveiling. To coincide with the picture ESA are able to offer Limited Edition Prints for those wishing to purchase a print of the picture. This is a Limited Edition run of only 50 and already a number were purchased at the Show. The cost is £85. and each print is supplied, double mounted with a backboard and individual Certificate of Authenticity – overall size 16” x 20”. You can if you wish have your print framed and cost would be from £105 to £135 depending on which frame you choose.

    If you wish to order a print, please download the order form by clicking Order Form and send with your cheque made out to English Setter Association to the ESA secretary – Elwyn Evans. Briar Cottage, Plump Hill, Mitcheldean, Glos, GL17 0ET.

    If you would like more details of the frames, then please contact Fiona Mitchell on either feemitchell@btinternet.com or 01386 462681.      But hurry there are only a few left!
