To commemorate the centenary of the standard of the Epagneul Breton, the CEB published in 2008 a special issue, rather presented as a book.
Along 200 pages, the devotees to the breed will discover its true history, as told by “those who made it”. The entire saga of the first of the French pointing breeds is evocated, illustrated by documents and photos of these old times, some of them never published before.
It also publishes the list of all the Epagneuls Bretons who became champions since 1947, and officially registered until June 8th, 2008.
This work, unavailable in any kind of trade, is still availalable in limited quantities for purchase until it goes out of print. Only for CEB's members.
At the CEB field-trial, at Escource on October 20th, we had the pleasure to note a 1st prize Excellent awarded to an epagneul breton coming from USA and handled by its owner, Mr. Mooney, who is also its breeder: Etoc de l'Escarbot.
The (successfull) entry of an oversea dog is scarce enough to be mentioned here.
"A maximum of qualities in a minimum of volume" so is the slogan of the Club de l'Epagneul Breton, concerning this small dog and its solid outlook of a real cob, all made of roundness.
Its open and brisk eyes, of a colour in harmony with the nose (from yellow to very deep amber), express by turns love, craftiness, intelligence. Very tender, eager, here is a lively dog who loves the long hunting days as well as it does appreciate the long periods of cosy life among its human family.
This is why, if it always makes the hunter happy by its behaviour when searching game and its poacher's mind, it knows how to satisfy the active family, fund of outdoor activities and long Sunday walks. This is why, never old-fashioned, it reaches very naturally its worldwide popularity.
