"In 1898 the celebrated pointer "Fascally Brag" was born.
He became both a field trial champion and a bench champion. Today he
would claim the title of dual champion. His breeder and owner was
Henry Sawtell. This gentleman had a 4,500-acre shoot in Wiltshire.
He had a portable shooting box known as Bohemian. It was really a
well-appointed caravan built at the cost of 1,000 Pounds for the
Duke of Newcastle, but purchased by Mr. Sawtell. It was fitted with
kitchen, cooking range, dark room, gun room, sleeping accommodation
for four, a piano and a wine locker. He would place this caravan
on St. Ann's Hill -- the highest point in Wiltshire -- in the very
center of his shoot. "Fascally Brag" was a prolific sire of outstanding
stock for show or work."
-- Edmondson & Robertshaw, 1978
"A dog of the early 1900s to almost become a Dual Champion was
"Ft. Ch. Fascally Bragg". In fact, in our book "The Pointer" we did say he was, but on further research it transpired that although "Bragg" did win three challenge certificates, two of them were under the same person, disqualifying him from his title on the bench, although he was a field trial champion. The dog was a prolific sire of outstanding stock for show and work and at the head of all the "Stylish" dogs. "Bragg" belonged to Mr. Henry Sawtell who had a four thousand, five hundred acre shoot in Wiltshire."
-- Robertson, 2000
"... celebrity in Mr. Sawtell's kennel was "Ch. Faskally Bragg"
(previously owned by Mr. A.E. Butters), and his blood, too, runs in the
veins of our present-day show Pointers, this time through
"His Majesty's" sire,
which was out of "Stylish Tango", out of "Stylish Iris", by
"Stylish Bragg", by "Ch. Faskally Bragg". One of "Bragg's" sons, "Southboro' Shot" did a lot of winning for that famous all-round judge, the late Mr. J.J. Holgate." -- Lola MacDonald Daly, 1938, The Pointer as a Showdog
