12th October 2022 - Clumber Spaniels: Jane Howarth judged the breed at the Gundog Society of Wales Championship show.  It proved to be a successful day for the Maursett Mob, with Gertie (Maursett Masikean) being awarded Best Puppy in Breed. Our daughter Hannah handled Ayda (Maursett Marayd) and won the Junior Bitch class, whilst Marnie (Maursett Marnie) picked up another Reserve Bitch CC.  To complete the Maursett success story, we were delighted to see Rachel Wareham's Merlin (Maursett Melwyn) -  ably handled by her daughter Lucy - winning the junior dog class (with Paul and Susanne Whitehouse's Maursett Mutley at Molvonia taking second).  Paul and Susanne's day was completed in some style as they won the Dog CC and Best of Breed with Garfield (Sh Ch Maursett Mallachie at Molvonia).  All in all, a very satisfying set of results.


7th October 2022 - Clumber Spaniels: Chris Bexon judged the breed at the South Wales Kennel Association Championship Show and awarded Gertie (Maursett Masikean) Best Puppy in Breed.  Marnie (Maursett Marnie) also won the Reserve Bitch CC.


2nd October 2022 - Clumber Spaniels: The Clumber Spaniel Club of Great Britain held its championship show today, with Swedish judge Karin Brostam Berglands judging.  It proved to be a successful show debut for Gertie (Maursett Masikean) who won the Minor Puppy bitch class, before getting a second behind the eventual bitch CC winner in Novice.  Ayda (Maursett Marayd) then won the Graduate bitch class.  Rachel Wareham saw Maursett Melwyn (aka Merlin) - and handled by her daughter Lucy - win Junior Dog (as well as Junior Dog or Bitch in the Specials classes judged by Ken Bartlett).  There was much merriment around the ring for Paul and Susanne Whitehouse as Paul handled his brace of Garfield and Mutley (Sh Ch Maursett Mallachie at Molvonia & Maursett Muttley at Molvonia respectively), winning the class with great aplomb.
18th September 2022 - Clumber Spaniels: great to have a ride out to a "local" show, where we were not exhibiting but just spectating.  Daughter Hannah was asked to show Maursett Mimi of Mariank (her very first show) by owner Ryan Ennis-Holden, under Judge Carol Page.  Ryan was absolutely thrilled when she won the Junior Bitch class and, even more so, when she then won the Reserve CC.  Hannah and Ryan are both on Cloud Nine and deservedly so.
11th September 2022 - Clumber Spaniels: Dave Boden judged the breed at Richmond Championship Show and it proved to be a good day out for the Maursett Mob.  Ayda (Maursett Marayd) won the Junior Bitch class, whilst Mercy (Maursett Mercy) and Marnie (Maursett Marnie) both won their classes (Limit Bitch and Open Bitch respectively).   We were delighted when Mercy was then awarded the Bitch CC - her all important third - and she is now Sh Ch Maursett Mercy  Many congratulations to the other winners, including Paul and Susanne Whitehouse who picked up the Reserve Dog CC with another dog of our breeding - Maursett Muttley of Malvonia. That has certainly made a long journey very worthwhile.


18th August 2022 - Clumber Spaniels: breed specialist Alastair Kirkman took centre stage and judged the breed at the Welsh Kennel Club Championship Show.  He awarded the Dog CC to Foy (Sh Ch Maursett Malfoy) and the Reserve Bitch CC to Marnie (Maursett Marnie), Foy's litter sister.  Not a bad day out to Builth Wells for the Maursett Mob.


24th July 2022 - Clumber Spaniels: Leeds Championship show saw Marnie (Maursett Marnie) continue her winning ways as she won the Open Bitch class and then went on to be awarded the Reserve Bitch Challenge Certificate.


15th July 2022 - Clumber Spaniels: we were delighted to learn that we had been approved by the UK Kennel Club as Assured Breeders for Clumber Spaniels


12th July 2022 - Clumber Spaniels: a very sad day as we had to say goodbye to Tilda (Maursett Mathilda) in her thirteenth year.  She was not shown much, but got two reserve CCs and her stud book number.  Tilda was very much the Maursett matriarch and spent most of her adult life residing on the settee and living a life of luxury.

Most importantly, she was very loved and felt like a permanent fixture chez Maursett.  RIP Tilda.
10th July 2022 - Clumber Spaniels: East of England Championship show saw Eunice King judging the breed.  It was a great day for the Maursett Mob as we celebrated a brother and sister doubtl. Maursett Malachie of Molvonia, owned by Paul and Susanne Whitehouse, gained that all important third CC and Best of Breed and now has his title - many congratulations to Susanne and Paul.  Meanwhile, the perfect Maursett day out was complete when his litter sister Marnie (Maursett Marnie) won the bitch open class and then went on to be awarded the bitch CC. 
12th June 2022 - Clumber Spaniels: Foy (Sh Ch Maursett Malfoy) is awarded the Reserve CC at Three Counties Championship Show, judged by Lee Cox (Vanitonia).  It was a delight to see Foy's litter brother, Maursett Malachie of Molvonia, owned by Paul and Susanne Whitehouse, go one better by winning the Dog CC. We always love it when dogs we have bred do so well in the ring and give their owners such satisfaction.
29th May 2022 - Clumber Spaniels: Ayda (Maursett Marayd) finished her puppy career in style by going Best Puppy in Show at North Riding Gundog Club's open show (Best in Show judge - Mr Ernie Lockett).  Breed judge Christine Schofield, who awarded Ayda Best Puppy in Breed, awarded Best of Breed Clumber to Foy (Sh Ch Maursett Malfoy), with Reserve Best of Breed going to Marnie (Maursett Marnie).  What a lovely day out for the Maursett clan and a big thank you to the judges who thought so highly of our Clumbers. Judge Christine Schofield wrote:
Sh Ch Maursett Malfoy
Judged this boy as a youngster, I thought he had great promise then and today he proved it. This young man presents such a balanced picture. In super coat & condition throughout. Pleasing head with gentle expression, heavy brows, square muzzle and well developed flews. Good bone and substance, straight front with good legs and well-padded feet. Short in loin and a good spring of rib. Well-muscled quarters used to advantage. Very typical on the move with plenty of drive from the rear and good tail action. Best of Breed.
Maursett Marnie
Quality typy bitch. Nice head shape and good proportions with the softest of expressions. There was substance to this bitch without lacking femininity. Strong breast bone and good length of ribbing. Moderately angled in the rear, with the correct level of muscle. Moved with drive and style. Reserve Best of Breed.
Maursett Marayd
This girl possesses a well - balanced head with no exaggeration. Good reach of neck, well laid shoulders. Correct topline and good tail set. Moved very soundly with such precise foot fall and super side profile gait showing excellent reach and drive. Best Puppy & thrilled to see her take Best Puppy in Show.
20h May 2022 - Clumber Spaniels: SKC Championship Show jsaw the breed udged by Dr A Paloheimo Segersven.    Marnie (Maursett Marnie) made her return to the ring after more than two years to gain the Reserve Bitch CC, whilst daughter Ayda (Maursett Marayd) was Best Puppy in Breed.  We were also thrilled to see another dog of our breeding taking the Dog CC (his first), namely Maursett Moruisg (Walter to his friends) owned by an equally delighted Mary Hanney.

21st January 2022 - Clumber Spaniels: What a great day for the Maursett Mob at Manchester Championship Show, where Foy (Sh Ch Maursett Malfoy) won Open Dog and then that all important 3rd CC.  Foy then went on to delight us by winning Best of Breed (Judge Mrs Kathy Moores).  Foy's litter brother, Maursett Mallachie at Molvonia owned by Paul and Susanne Whitehouse, won the Res Dog CC - their day was made complete as Maursett Muttley at Molvonia took Best Puppy in Breed.  We were also thrilled to see the Res Bitch CC also flying the Maursett Flag as this was awarded to Ricky Furnell's Maursett Marvella of Bebecova gaining her stud book number.
