In 1993 Ann and David bought a Pointer, Woodglade Dance in Time (Oliver) from Jock and Maureen Mackay. Oliver was a very exuberant puppy and somehow managed to knock out one of his front teeth and so had quite a short showing career. This was a big disappointment as he had gone Best Minor Puppy Pointer at his first Championship Show. Oliver lived with the rest of the Ewtors to the ripe old age of 15 and it was not until August 2007 when a family friend, David Tobin, asked for Alastair’s help in exhibiting his dogs, that Pointers came back into our lives.
At first Alastair handled two of David’s Irish Setters in addition to two of his Pointers, Davigdor Whistful (Tara) and Davigdor Patience (Molly). Then when Davigdor Tiara (Truly) came along she was jointly owned. In 2009 Alastair went into partnership with David with all of the Pointers and they moved in with the Ewtors. From his initial involvement with the Davigdor Pointers Alastair handled Molly to 1CC (with Best of Breed) and 3 RCCs.
Now all of the pointers are jointly owned by both David Tobin and Alastair and Alastair is proud to have an interest in the Davigdor affix. The first litter produced by the partnership came from a mating of Tara to ShCh Joneva Diamond In The Rough JW. Alastair considers himself extremely lucky to have produced Davigdor Rough and Tumble (Michael) from this mating. Michael gained his Junior Warrant at the age of 14 months and has been consistently in the prizes at Championship Shows, which include winning the Pet Plan Puppy Stakes at Southern Counties Championship Show and 2 RCCs.
Since then the partnership has produced Davigdor Diamond Lil (Lil) who has had multiple wins at both Open and Championship Shows.
