SH.CH.SPYEFIRE ABLE SEAMAN TO WROXHAM (TOBY)

I bought Toby from Suzanne Humphries, his sire the great SH.CH. Spearpoint Sambooka Flambe, his dam Glennessa My Ameme to Spyefire from the famous 'M' litter.  

This picture was taken at National Gundog Championship Show after he had won his 3rd Challenge Certificate making him my second Irish Red and White Show Champion in the space of a few months.  He was and still is a 'Super Showman', his show record speaks for itself.

His wins so far are, 13 Challenge Certificates, 3 Reserve Challenge Certificates, 5 times Best in Show, Irish Red and White Setter Club of Great Britain (1 Ch. 4 Open), 1 Reserve Best in Show Irish Red and White Setter Club of Great BritainTwice Best Veteran in Show Irish Red and White Setter Club of Great Britain.

Toby taken after he had won the 'Special Puppy Dog' class at Crufts.  His first Crufts and a great win for him and also for me. The judges report said "well balanced, correct head, especially good in hind action and tail carriage".
