We're back from Coronation Kennels and a very nice visit with Legh and Jen Higgins, the owners of Coronation Kennels and the Twombly line of English setters.

It appears to have been a very successful breeding but the proof is in the pudding, as they say.

No he didn't and it didn't matter at all... It was lust at first sight.

If I may say so this is a special blend of 3 Twombly setters all traced back to my granddads Coronation kennel, Corey Fords bird dogs Cider and his son Tober. both parents are proven wild bird hunting dogs that live in the home with their people. This is a great opportunity to get an exceptional Bird Dog.

Dean

looks more like the law being laid down than lust raised up

we can see who set the - shall we say - rules of "engagement"

Well, they settled it very quickly - both of their tails were wagging furiously.

Next morning Grace was abundantly eager to 'play' with Burdock again, just for a shot of insurance.
