Our first Gordon Setter joined us in 1999, “Oscar”, Aldabrook Wizard of Oz. Oscar was brought as a pet and we knew nothing about showing but after some gentle encouragement from Pauline Quarterman we enjoyed 6 great years of showing Oscar. In 2000 “Fraser” Aldabrook Fraternal Fella joined us, my loveable rouge and tramp as he became known as, was not a show dog, preferring to stay at home. After the loss of Oscar in 2006, “Callum” Aldabrook High Hopes came to keep Fraser company as he just could not cope being on his own having only know life with Oscar.

After our move to Herefordshire in 2007, Fraser enjoyed 4 years which I would say were the happiest of his life, he loved where we live, with the freedom and open space. In 2011 we had to say a very hard goodbye to Fraser and spent a year with just Callum. Then in June 2012 our little miss joined us, “Isla”, Kilnrae Party Time, she is a joy to live with, and best friends with Callum, even if she is a little tart. We are having a great time in the show ring together and look forward to what the coming years will bring.

Callum has now joined his brothers and life is very quiet. Isla had a litter in 2016 with Sh Ch Liric Special Fanfare with Shillay JW and we decided to keep two puppies!! Tarka and Tumnus are great fun and are keeping us all on our toes. Isla has been a fabulous mum and loves her children. We are looking forward to Tarka and Tumnus entering the show ring very soon.

The dogs are our life and we could not imagine being with out them, they bring us much enjoyment and love.
