BRACCO ITALIANO CLUB
11th February 2018
Judge Miss Jean Lanning (Clausentum)
A great honour to judge the ‘first’ Bracco italiano Club Show in the U.K. A Members Limited Show, C.C. winners not eligible, but some good examples were presented. An ancient Italian working gundog that also gives a very good account in the field here. Obviously has links with the Pointer, but it’s very characteristic head marks it out, with a ‘stamp’ all its own!! I could not wonder that this very tractable and handsome Breed, will catch on with the Public? Not something that the fanciers here, would really, welcome and be excited about? One could have said that about the early breeders of Labradors and Golden Receivers!!. Now Britain’s most favourite breeds. Man’s best friend, great gamily pets, Guide Dogs, hearing dogs etc. etc.
