Sella Price (bitch, liver/white, w: February 12, 1887, breeder Sam Price, owner Harry Jones, EKC 24454)

"Mr. Price ... with commendable candour, did not make any very great secret of the foxhound element in his pointers -- an element that no one who knows anything of hounds could fail to observe in the demeanour as well as in the appearance of his dogs. I once had a bitch of Mr. Price's breeding, called "Sella Price", which was much inbred to "Old Bang". She was a handsome bitch, and a prize-winner, but she had the fuzzy tail, the coat of two lengths, and the cat feet of her race. "Sella" was a good single bitch to shoot over, though rather soft, but she would never attempt to back. Usually she was perfectly steady, yet one day in her fifth season I sent her out with two of my friends and her usual handler, when she, for no apparent reason, run up the first brood of grouse, and chased it out of sight, loudly giving tongue. I never knew her guilty of this either before or afterwards. I kept four of her puppies, of which "Tap" and his brother were excellent, but the two bitches, though they would gallop about, were not possessed of the slightest sporting instinct. "Tap" himself was a wonderful dog, and being by a very purely-bred black pointer, was another instance of a violent out-cross and its results; for he, like Colonel Thornton's "Dash", was not a success at the stud." -- Arkwright, 1906
