  1. Hi Janette & Jon – am trying to read Jon’s report on Pointers in Italy – but think there may be a problem with the link? Well, its not working for me anyway – it downloads but I cannot open the file after that. Any help, much appreciated. I thought the article might have been good to reproduce in our Pointer club magazine here in NZ if Jon was agreeable. Kind regards to you both, Megan

  2. In case anyone else has been having this problem, I’ve uploaded the article again this time without the pictures in case that was the problem. Have put the pictures separately onto a Bubbleshare on the Photos/Video page.

  3. Hi Jon,
    Check out
    The Scottish Screen Archives have got a film you can purchase; it’s a ‘Time out with Tennat’ which has a feature about working dogs on the Cromlix estate featuring Swallow of Cromlix & Swift of Cromlix and Lady Auckland. Great to see the 1960’s footage of the Cromlix kennels.

    See you in the Summer.
