Congratulations to the Wales International Gundog Retriever Team at The Game Fair

Congratulations the Wales International Gundog Retriever Team on their achievements at The Game Fair.

The Wales Retrievers walked away with the Northern Goldsmiths Retriever Team Trophy, which dates back to the first Game Fair International in 1978.

England were overall worthy winners with a total score of 1,090, followed closely by Ireland with a total of 1,086, Wales finished on 1,052 with Scotland on 1,003. 

Wales Captain, Alan Rees, came out as the first competitor to go over the track and established a formidable benchmark of 116 out of a maximum 120.

To add to the suspense, four dogs tied on 116, which resulted in a run off for second and third. For the first time during the competition the judges set a test using the full length of the arena for an unseen retrieve over three fences, into the woods, with no shot. Sadly, one dog failed, and the end result placed Les McLean of Scotland in second and Alan Rees in third.

Anthea Day

In November 2010 my 4 yr old bloodhound Henry suffered a torsion, a 180 degree twist of his stomach. Fortunately I got him to the vets in time and he survived the major surgery to put his stomach back in the right position and stitch it in place. After the surgery he was unable to take any wheat or rice so feeding him became a nightmare. He went down to skin and bone and I believed I was going to lose him. We turned a corner around February when I started him on small amounts of Fit N Fast which he tolerated well. Since then we have graduated to a 50/50 mix of Fit n Fast and CP Extra. He will never be able to have his previous two meals a day and will always be on 3+ meals but he is here, he's healthy, and his weight is back to normal. I also give him extra chicken fat on his meals and the combination of feeds and fat have brought him back from the brink. His vet is delighted and I can't thank you enough for the feeds which have facilitated his recovery. Thank you so much.
