Yesterday the ISAE & Setter & Pointer Club held an Open Stake at
Six Mile Bottom in Suffolk, England; the only setter breed not running
was Irish Red & Whites, so we had Irish Red, English & Gordon
setters running, although the English Pointers were in the majority
& took both the awards.
The dogs were working French
partridges & the birds were sticking very close to ground as it
was a very cold day with a bitter Southerly wind, so we did not see many
clean flushes.......in fact the dogs put up more Hares than birds &
some just could not resist the temptation of giving them a good old
chase....much to their owner's embarassment!
Chris Heron from
ISAE Committee was in attendance the whole day & she presented the
awards.....& as you will see from the photographs (more
photos on my page) she got an
unexpected award herself!!! :))
All in all a very enjoyable day
with an absolutely super bunch of people & their splendid dogs.
