Originally, we introduced Barembak Martini at
Maursett into the Maursett household. Nora B, as she was known to her friends, (something to do with
her wrinkly stockings), became an instant hit with the Maursett Mob.
she was not shown much, she certainly did herself justice in the ring
when asked to do so:
"Taylor's Barembak Martini at
Maursett....calm female, having head of correct wedge shape, and lovely
expression, eyes dark. Jaw strong, with teeth of correct bite. The head
supported on a neck that rolled down to strong shoulders, fronting a deep
chest. The ribs rounded and deep flowing back to a tight loin. Rear
legs strong and with good bend of stifle. Well let down hocks. Good

She did, however, much prefer
the comforts of a settee to recline on rather than all that running
around. She turned into a grand old lady, much appreciated by
all of us and everyone who came into contact with her.
Nora B arrived in the
world on 14th July 2002 and joined her Maursett friends shortly
afterwards. At 8 weeks of age, Nora B the Basset Hound had become an
important member of the Maursett family (both canine and human).
