raising funds to support neglected or abandoned Pointers
What a day! At Pointerfest 2019 we attempted to beat the record for the greatest number of dogs in a photoshoot.
Led by Martin Hall we were hoping for 150 dogs but we actually registered 237. Unfortunately some of our hounds weren't eligible as they were too young or the owner did not have a registered ID number. So, by the end we submitted a total of 213!
Our three magnificent photographers, Michael Norton, Simon Hanagarth and Ellie Kerans were under pressure to take a number of group photos along with a individual, protrait photos. They did such a great job and their work can be seen in the Gallery pages. Take a look - all of the photos are for sale!
The rules for our record attempt were considerable. Martin had to submit 50 pieces of evidence - it will take GWR about three months to review our application but we are all crossing our fingers we are RECORD BREAKERS!!
24 breeds of dog took part with the greatest number being.... Pointers!!!
87% of our canine visitors were Pointers.
The most common dog name:
Merlin - third place
Jasper - second place
Millie - first place!
The most common handler name:
Richard - third place
John - second place
Sue - first place!
The average age of our dogs - 4.95
The oldest dog to take part - 14
The youngest dog to take part - 14 weeks
