I have judged all other breeds in all groups at Open Show level, and have long had an interest in gundog training. I am on a number of Gundog Committees and am presently General Secretary and Treasurer of Lothian and Borders Gundog Association.
The ABERDON Affix was held jointly with my late husband, Sandy, from the 1970's till his tragic and untimely death in 1991 Sandy and I showed Cocker Spaniels from 1980, and Brittanys soon after. After meeting my late partner, John, in 1992, he became interested in working our dogs and trialled one of our bitches, Gigi, with some success.
