Rothievale Gundogs

Holly - Taponoth Annie Lennox

Bred by my friend David Hamilton, Holly is a daughter of Berry's field trial winning sister, Lottie, aka FTW Rothievale Groundsel.

Holly is stylish, intelligent, a fantastic marker and retriever, good in cover and has a lovely sweet nature, everything I hope for in a spaniel.  She has also inherited Sage and Berry's natural line taking ability.

Test and Trial Achievements

As Holly matures she gets better and better, she won a novice test after very little training due to me being 7 months pregnant!


I am disappointed that I will be unable to trial her due to my baby being born in 2013 but I am very pleased with how she has developed during her first season on game, it was a shame that our spring trial was cancelled due to snow as I was hoping to run her.  Holly had a litter of 11 in 2014 to FTW Buccleuch Ranger. Only one of the litter is in a trialling home and he has  won a Novice and Open trial and went onto gain a Diploma at the 2019 Spaniel Championships in heavy cover in Ireland.

Holly has had a second litter of 10 puppies to FTAW Skronedale Hansel of Druimmuir.  This mating is full of traditional spaniel lines, using Buster has added the much respected Irish bloodlines.  I am really pleased with the puppies, they are well marked and have great temperaments with plenty of tail action. I have kept a bitch pup and shes the best I've had so far, I just hope that continues as shes a live wire with no off button!
