Rory Major

Rory was Twelve when his first dog Henry came along when his fathers labrador had a liason with a poodle cross mongrel, at seventeen he moved on to terriers and lurchers hunting them as a pack for foxes and rabbits.

Next came Sam an unregistered springer who he used to compete with at working tests against Retrievers, sometimes winning so the competitive bug was born.

When Rory was twenty three Henry died, shortly afterwards he was visiting the kennels of Major George Wilkinson to check on two GSP's that were being trained for his boss, whilst there he saw a puppy that looked just like Henry and was told that this was a new breed of gundog called a German Wirehaired Pointer, he decided that he had to have it! So Velia Von Andesheim came to live with him and in time with training became the breeds first Field Trial Champion
