We did our best today but didn't quite make it: had to settle for second in our class at Crufts, which is still actually pretty damned good! So chuffed with Brian, he loves being in the ring and afterwards he had so many people come to say "hello" I lost count.

Our friend John MacGregor with Rubles will be representing the breed on TV in the Gundog Group competition on C4 from 20.00.......go Rubles!!!!!.

Many congratulations to Brian, (and you of course). Quite some achievement.  :thumbsup:

I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.
If a friend seems distant, catch up with him.

Very well done Brian.
You must be very pleased even if it is tinged with a tiny bit of disappointment.
Hopefully Brian is looking forward to a good run on Portreath Beach very soon.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Well done, Brian!

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1920s to the 1950s.

I'm not a doggy person, but my mother was.  She judged Irish Setter Dogs (as opposed to Bitches) and best of breed at Crufts back in either 1989 or 90.  By then it had moved from Olympia to Earls Court.  I can't remember if she ever won Best Gundog at Crufts but she certainly won Best of Breed. She won Best in Show at Peterborough in (I think) 1966.
With kind regards

You really might like to re-word that, Laurence. It just sounds all wrong to me :worried:

Well, yes it was her dogs that won of course.  Brendower Bomber won Best in Show at Peterborough and I'm pretty sure that both Brendower Bounty and Brendower Bronze Champagne won B-o-B at Crufts, although years apart.  One of her bitches might have done that too, Brendower Brown Sugar.  I hope that sounds better.

Unusual book, but no doubt very interesting. The cover itself is great... what appears to be a 9F and no barrier wagon!

Congratulations on your success at Crufts, by the way  :thumbsup:

Thank you.....we were on the Large Munsterlander stand in the Discover Dogs area yesterday show- casing our breed. Met and talked to loads and loads of people, Brian loved all the attention.
Anyway, only had a quick thumb through so far and it is indeed very intesting.  Am extremely impressed with the quality for a "second hand" book; looks brand new to me and well worth 12.80!
Have a 1965 WR timetable to look at as well, so that's a nice lazy Sunday morning lined up  :)

Needed a way for the little people to get on the rig: ladder between the feed pipes at one end, steps the other.4
