Pedigree

 

Muppet came to us from Martyn Elliot's Hookside Kennels in September 1999.


His sire is "Sh Ch Nevedith Star of Nazereth", his dam is "Hung Ch Hookside Csitri". It was interesting to see how the breed had evolved since we got Kes and Peri.

We got Muppet so soon after Razzle as we realised the Peri didn't have long left and we didn't want Raz to grieve as Peri had following Kes's death.

Muppets "real" name is Kaleb, but is almost never called by that name!

Muppet has had a steady show career, his high point so far has been winning the Reserve CC at Blackpool Ch Sh in 2004 under Editha Newton.

Muppet can turn his paw to many things. He has done beginners Gundog Training, he does Agility (quite slowly and carefully). He has a lovely temperament, at present he aids a local behaviorist with dogs who have problems forming relationships with other dogs due to past experiences with aggression etc. Anyone who has met Mup knows what a softy he is.

OD. 1. Austin's Hookside Kamas at Kenazorora, very noble head and expression, good length of neck, pleasing shoulder placement, elbows well under and well filled in forechest, super topline on the move. RCC.

PGD. 1. Austin's Hookside Kamas. Lovely medium sized dog who stood out for type.Super head with dark eye and good earset.Good front with level topline held strady on the move.Correct rear angulation. Easy winner here, but lacked presence in the challenge. Hopefully this will come as he matures and he will then trouble the best.

Muppets likeness can be seen on several rooftops around the Chepstow area,we commissioned a local blacksmith to make a weathervane for us featuring The Muppet in profile. So much interest has been shown, that there are now a number of Muppets around!

Ann Kilminster , the international artist, sculptor and Flatcoat Retriever breeder and exhibitor has painted a pastel of Muppet entitled Red Alert.

Mup lived with Isobel and Ava (his grand daughter). He enjoyed being the stabilising influence on Ava, Baro and Cress and meeting lots of new people some even children!

Unfortunately on 2nd December 2008 Mups ate poisoned baitbelieved left by the local gamekeeper and died 2 days later.

We were all very sad but very grateful to Isobel for giving Mup such a good home for us.
