Epagneul Breton

*Pets, *Photography

It´s a while since I posted some pics from Old King and here some more background information: the name “Brittany” is taken from the region of the same name in northwestern France. Images of Brittanys were first seen on tapestries and paintings from the 17th century. These images depicted orange and white dogs hunting and retrieving game. The first written and verifiable record of Brittanys comes from a hunting description written by Reverend Davies in 1850. Davies described hunting with small “bobtailed” dogs who were pointed and were excellent retrievers. It was around the same time that the modern Brittany is rumored to have been bred by mating with English Setters. First shown at the Paris Dog Show in 1900, the Brittany had already been known in Europe for centuries. The breed became simply known as “Brittany.” Although the Brittany is often referred to as a Brittany Spaniel, Brittany Wiegref, Epagneul Breton… it´s very funny to photography pets and I always use him as Test object to improve manual focussing skills…
