Peri's greatest forte however was in the working field. he was taken beating for
the first time aged 6 1/2 and took to it like the natural he was.
He was in great demand as his tenacity was such that he would work
the thickest and thorniest cover , not giving up until every last bird was flushed.
Following Kes being put to sleep on Boxing Day 1998 , Peri sank into a deep depession. Although when Kes was put
down (at home) we had tried to show Peri the body so he could maybe understand, he looked everywhere in the room
but at Kes... it just hadn't seemed to work. We tried all sorts of possible solutions but when our Vet suggested
either putting him on anti-depressants or getting another puppy we plumped for the more natural route. A friend
co-incidentally rang to tell of an advert in Horse and Hound for a litter of Vizslas. I rang the breeder up "just
for a chat". We visited the litter the next day and 2 weeks later Razzle arrived.
