Hi All, I have this print of an English bitch, that I Find VERY interesting. I am hoping that Derek or some of you can get me more information on her. A pedigree or whatever. I happen to be a history buff of the Bedlington Breed. Have been collecting information for many years and cannot find this bitch anywhere. HELP!!!!! Thanks in advance for your help with this. Mary Lou

Thank you Mary Lou, I don’t have a clue but would like to know as well, not many liver bedlingtons have such a dark coat with white furnishings and top not!

Thank you Lesley. I am truly hoping someone can get me more info on this bitch. You or I forgot to include the name that was inscribed on the print. It is labeled: "Sally of Foxington" in the lower left corner of the print.
Thank you detectives, I just know that some of you will be able to find info for me on this bitch.
As for the colour, I think that maybe the artist has taken some liberties with enhancing that. (G)

There's a print for sale on the UK Ebay site. Also if you input the name on Google it brings up pedigrees for the Foxington name.

Hi Derek,
I did as you said and checked out google and found only one pedigree of a Foxington dog and that was incomplete. UK Ebay just makes me want to spend money that I can't afford right now.! I am saving money in the hopes of making another trip over to visit you all again. (G) I can't even find out who owns/owned Foxington.

WOW! Thank you Derek and especially Martin. What a smart guy! (G) You have no idea how much I appreciate all your research. I think I will also drop a note to Ken, and see what he can add, since he is not computer friendly. He is still wonderful. He wrote some nice articles for me when I was editing the Tassles & Tails magazine of the BTCA.

Hi,

Yes I am lucky to see "Sally" every day, the painting was given to me by a friend who I got to know when I started to show bedlingtons, she was also the one who inspired me to own a "liver" as this colour was frowned upon in the late seventies, early eighties, "Sally" was given to her parents for their care and concern to Mr. Winder when he was unwell, and after her parents died it hung on my friends wall, when she moved house "Sally" was rehomed with me.
Not only is it great to see "Sally" but she brings back memories of my friends parents and their contempories and the "Old Timers. Bye for now, Carmel
