Sh Ch Normbar
Coleen of Maursett made her mark
as a star in the Maursett Kennels. She went on to have an
occasional, but very successful, foray into veteran classes (from which
she was awarded a Res CC at a breed club show).
Pointers have always had a big part to play in the Maursett
household. Whilst we no longer breed or show GWPs, they
remain a very significant part of our life in the world of dogs.
Maureen and Tony both award CCs in the breed and Tony had the
honour of being Secretary of the breed club - The
German Wirehaired Pointer Club.
They may be headstrong, wilful and plain wicked at times,
but the GWP has really left a lasting impact on us.
Ch Normbar Coleen of Maursett ) is our final German Wirehaired Pointer to
grace the showring and as a working gundog. She has truly
been one of the stars of the with the Maursett Mob.
It was hard for us to believe that 2008 saw Fizz entering into the
Sh Ch Maursett Marelda via Normbar owned by
Norma Ellis, gained her title at quite an early age and is a
regular worker as well - like the Clumber Spaniel, the German
Wirehaired Pointer is truly a dual purpose gundog achieving
success in both the show ring and as working gundogs. The line
continues to win and it is always a delight to have left a
positive mark on the breed for the future.

eager group of GWPs

It is also pleasing to
hear that Liesl's litter sister and brother - Normbar Olympia
and Normbar Austin (out of Sh Ch Maursett Marelda via Normbar) -
have both had successful starts to their show careers in
German Wirehaired Pointer classes in
It was a big
blow to us when we lost Lynsett Alfons at Maursett (Fonz) just
before Christmas 2000. He was full of character and Tony's
constant companion - and as good a working gundog as you could
