""Brockton's Bounce" was a magnificent dog, and he was the first pointer that ever won a field trial in England."
-- EKC, September 1881
""Brockton's Bounce" was a magnificent dog, a winner on the show bench, and of the first Field Trial in England.
"Newton's Ranger" was another of the early performers, and he was very staunch and brilliant, but it was in the next five years that the most extraordinary Pointer merit was seen, as quite incomparable was
"Sir Richard Garth's Drake", who was just five generations from the Spanish Pointer."
