The Working Clumber Spaniel Society have embraced more of the electronic age with a fill in newsletter delivered to members via email
called Breaking Cover, it is neatly laid out, and members are kept up to date with important time sensitive items.
Of course, the big news from the UK, is the recent death of Bill Ironside, the man in the kilt. Bill was noted for his passion for the more heavily built Clumber that could get into the field, and bred under the Belcrum prefix but also became involved in his wife’s kennel Tavirosh on their marriage. Bill was noted for his ability to stand and deliver on any ideas that were dear to his heart, and you will find reference to his passion in the minutes of both UK clubs and in fact the Kennel Club. His most noted show winner and breed sire was
EngCh (not only a ShCh) Tollylog Angus Mor of Belcrum from many years ago, but still easily spotted in pedigrees across the world today.
