I am delighted to be owned by two Pointers, Rowan and Hugo. I can't thank Annette Siddle enough for breeding these two fantastic boys and letting them share their lives with us. And here started my love of the breed and the start of dog showing! Rowan was a real challenge, he thought it was such a hoot and much more fun to leap up and down, put his paw over the lead and lay on the floor with his legs in the air!! For him showing was just soooooo boring! How different was Hugo. By now I'd been paying attention and practicing hard with Annette and Amelia Siddle giving me such valuable advice and training. Ron Rodwell took me under his wing and was invaluable in his help, critiqueing me when I came out of the ring and making me practice what I'd got wrong until I got it right! Well it all paid off and finally I got the knack and not only am I showing Hugo to his full potential but also winning Adult Handling Classes. Who'd have guessed!
Wilchrimane Dartmoor Dream ShCM - Hugo
Well what a great Crufts for us. Judge Frank Kane picked Hugo 2nd in a large Post Graduate Dog class. As you can see, he really can move.
Here's what Frank Kane had to say about Hugo:
4 years, appealed for his shape, type and construction, oval bone and feet, full of quality.
Here are a few of Hugo's critiques.....

POINTER O. (11). 1. Fuller and Millards', Wilchrimane Dartmoor Dream. A lovely class but Dartmoor Dream caught my eye right from the start. Not yet 2 years old but maturing nicely. Beautiful balance throughout. Including his lovely head and expression. Covered the ground well as he powered round the ring. BOB and Group 2
