Mr Ernest Drewett

IT IS with great sadness, I report the death on August 6th of a truly great friend Mr Ernest Drewett aged 88 years, writes Ron Miers.

Readers may remember, especially the older ones the “Spiredom name - synonymous with German Shepherds” during the fifties and sixties, he was a man of great humanity and would never say a wrong word, he was full of kindness and humour, a great animal lover particularly of horses and dogs, while he was training German Shepherds he was to meet his wife, Mary, who also owned, bred and trained German Shepherd dogs.

In later years they went on to breed and show the Judyland Cavalier King Charles Spaniels with great success, he loved his family and liked nothing better than being with them, he was a true gentleman of the old school and he leaves his wife Mary and four sons. We who knew him feel privileged for his life.

Mr Vernon Webb

IT IS with deep regret that the Borzoi club announce the death of Vernon Webb. He passed away in the early hours of Saturday morning September 7. A very gentle and generous man, who had been a long standing committee member. Our hearts and prayers go out to Anne and her family.

A full obituary will be entered under the breed notes at the earliest opportunity.
