Throwback Thursday – Blake

Meet 2-year-old Blake, the star of this week’s throwback Thursday.

We caught up with Blakes ‘paw-rent’, Maud, to find out more about this handsome chap.

What breed is Blake?

‘English Setter.’

Buddies Pet Insurance - TBT - BlakeWhy did you choose this breed? – 

‘They have such an exceptional temperament and great beauty.’

How old was Blake when he joined your family?

‘Just 16 weeks old.’

Where did you get your Blake from? 

‘He joined us from the premier breeder of English Setters in Asturias, Spain – Julia Bango of ‘de los Vitorones kennel’.’

What’s Blake’s strangest habit? 

‘He’s more interested in birds than his dinner. Strange.’

What makes you proud to be Blake’s ‘paw-rent’?

Buddies Pet Insurance - TBT - Blake‘We have a very small gene pool in English Setters in the UK, and I searched Europe to find an English Setter that looked like a UK bred one. I went to visit Julia in Spain, who had 2 litters, and I fell in love with Blake. He has just sired his first litter and I am really looking forward to showing his son, Peyroux.’

The Buddies team thing Blake is such a handsome pup. Thank you to Maud for sharing his #TBT with us.

We are always on the hunt for handsome hounds and pretty pooches to feature in our blogs. If you would like to get involved, email the team at Hello@Buddies.co.uk.
