Summer joined the Ledgands household in July 2009 and kept us on our toes...as well as the other dogs on theirs.

She always tried to be the dominant dog of the house...but underneath this was a real softy. Summer like all Pointers, loved nothing more than to be cuddled on the settee where she would settle for hours given half the chance.

Summer had a great nose for birds and all sorts of moving life!! She was always stalking in the field. Her view was that if it moves, it was fair game....and if it doesn't move, she'd make it.

Summer was campaigned in Southern Ireland and gained lots of Green Stars and Reserve Green Stars. As a result of all these Irish wins, Summer became both an Irish Junior Champion and an Irish Show Champion.

On the continent, Summer went down a storm. She gained many CACs (like our CC's) and CACIBs in different countries, often taking Best of Breed too. Because of her wins at both the Dortmund and Leeuwarden European Winners Dog Shows she became, amongst other things, an FCI Centenary Show Champion and an FCI Centenary European Winner.

In one week (late August/early September 2011) Summer won Best of Breed and Group 1 in Rotterdam, and then went on to take Best of Breed, Group 1 and a fantastic 3rd BEST IN SHOW at the Dutch National Dog Show in Leeuwarden, Nothern Holland and this has made her a Dutch Show Champion. In the same week she won Best of Breed at the European Winners Dog show held at the same venue. WOW it was almost all too much to take in !

During 2012, she won her first UK CC under judge Patsy Hollings.

We are devastated to have to tell you all that we have had to say goodbye to our dearest, beloved Summer. She now rests over rainbow bridge after she was diagnosed with a non-operable brain tumor.

We thank Summer's breeder Linda Westron for allowing Summer to lighten our lives. We also thank all the judges who thought so highly of Summer and for all those of you who followed her career with interest.

May Summer run free forever with Anakin and Reebok.
