6th April 2024 Tibetan Spaniels: The Tibetan Spaniel Association championship show was judged by Daniel Roberts. He awarded Rodri (Oldcharm Can You Love Me at Maursett) second in a strong minor puppy dog class. What a great start to his show career - we are so proud of the little fellow with the big personality.

17th March 2024 Tibetan Spaniels: Rodri (Oldcharm Can You Love Me at Maursett) made his show debut at the Whitehaven & District Canine Association open show, judged by Mason Thorne. Rodri did the Maursett Mob proud wining Best Puppy in Breed and then going on to win Puppy Group 4. This dog has certainly made his mark and is a wonderful character to have around the place.
8th March 2024 Clumber Spaniels: Crufts Championship.  Last year, Gertie (Maursett Masikean)won the Best Puppy in breed award at Crufts and this year she won the Limit Bitch class and was awarded the Reserve Bitch Challenge Certificate. Marnie (Sh Ch Maursett Marnie) was third in a good sized Open Bitch class.  It was good day all round for Maursett breeding, which was lovely to see.  Dogs bred by us, or sired by Mathos (Sh Ch Maursett Mathos JW), or out of bitches bred by us gaining: Best of Breed, Reserve Dog Challenge Certicate, Reserve Bitch Challenge Certificate, five firsts, two seconds, four thirds and three fourth places.  Our judge for Crufts this year was breed specialist Ian Layfield.
21st January 2024 Clumber Spaniels: Manchester Championship show saw Gertie (Maursett Masikean) win the Limit Clumber Bitch class under judge Gordon Haran.
14th January 2024 Clumber Spaniels: Blake Crocker judged Clumbers at Goyt Valley Gundog Society's Open Show, where both and Gertie (Maursett Masikean) won their classes, with Marnie taking Best of Breed.  Unfortunately, we could not stay for Best in Show.


10th December 2023 - Clumber Spaniels: Richard Bott judged Clumbers at the LKA Championship Show and awarded the Reserve Bitch Challenge Certificate to Gertie (Maursett Masikean), who is certainly building up a collection of these awards.


14th October 2023 - Clumber Spaniels: another Reserve Challenge Certificate for Gertie (Maursett Masikean), awarded by Judge Michelle Meredith at the South Wales Kennel Association Championship Show.


9th October 2023 - Clumber Spaniels: Maureen and Tony were delighted to receive notification from the Royal Kennel Club that we have been awarded the Accolade of Excellence for Clumber Spaniels on the Assured Breeders Scheme, having been put forward for this by the Clumber Spaniel Club.  We are very proud of this award and grateful to the Royal Kennel Club and our breed club for this honour. 


8th October 2023 - Tibetan Spaniels (no, this is not a typo - definitely Tibetan, not Clumber, Spaniels!):  Tony, Maureen and Hannah have a thoroughly enjoyable day out at the Breed Assessment Day run by the Northern Tibetan Spaniel Club.  All three of us were all delighted to come away with certificates after successfully attending the talk and then passing the Multiple Choice Examination followed by the Hands on Assessment in the afternoon.  


25th September 2023 - Clumber Spaniels: tonight another star shines brightly as our lovely girl Beatrice - Cape Lewisporte Make A Wish for Maursett (Imp Bel) - was given sleep after a very short illness.

Bea was never destined to be a show girl, but she revolutionised our Mob and we are forever grateful to Danielle and Jan for entrusting us with her.

Mother of Maursett show champions Maursett Mathos, Maursett Mercy and Maursett Mycate of Kiswahili and not forgetting Maursett Morveen of Vanitonia, mum of Lee Cox’s BIS Winner Sh Ch Vanitonia Soloist, as well as Maursett Mhairi Res CC winner at Crufts in 2020. Her grandchildren include show champions Maursett Malfoy, Maursett Marnie and Maursett Malachie at Molvonia. 

Her impact goes even further with grand and great grandchildren Maursett Masikean, Maursett Muttley at Molvonia, Maursett Marvella of Bebacova, Maursett Mordecai at Rocabec, Maursett Moruisg and Maursett Mimi of Maiank all winning CCs and Reserve CCs.

Bea was the sweetest of girls and loved everyone and was a joy to live with, even if she did have a love of Jaffa Cakes.

God speed Bea over the Rainbow Bridge.   


Tomorrow is never promised so everyone give your dogs an extra hug tonight.


6th August 2023 - Bracco Italiano: Maureen judged Bracco Italiano at the National Gundog Association's Championship Show and gave Best of Breed to her bitch Challenge Certificate winner, Sh Ch Braccorions Never Say Never JW, owned by Marlene Critchley and handled by Emma Towns.  It was wonderful to see this super girl then go on to be awarded Best In Show by judge David Howarth.
28th July 2023 - Clumber Spaniels: Leeds Championship Show saw Anthony Allen judging the breed and it was another good day at the office for the Maursett Mob, with Marnie (Sh Ch Maursett Marnie) winning the Open Bitch class.  But it was Gertie (Maursett Masikean) who stole the day winning the Junior Bitch class and then being awarded the Reserve Challenge Certificate (her second) at just 16 months.
