Murphy first in the intermediate class won CACIB,BOB BOG-3!
"I saw my first pointer at a dog show: it was love at first sight! I was bowled over by its refined looks, its elegance, its gentle nature, - the way it resembled the fine lines of a thoroughbred horse. It took me months of painstaking work to find a ennel in England prepared to export a pointer puppy to Hungary. I was successful only because I had a private recommendation. I also found a willing partner who was prepared to receive a puppy of one of the Hungarian breeds in exchange, instead of having to find the hard currency - so difficult to come by, in those days - as straightforward payment for my pointer. Eventually, after a long time of excited expectations, my first pointer puppy, Eastlands Telstar Jeff, arrived in 1972, - in exchange for a komondor puppy, Ohegyi Duna, the first ever komondor to become an English "citizen". Jeff, as a show-dog, did not fulfil my expectation, - but it was through him, through his remarkable character that I was inextricably bound to this breed. It was through Jeff that I gained full insight into the pointer world and got to know other UK kennels as well. "
