Synopsis: The ancestors of the Italian Spinone were probably around in the fifth century BC, and there are pictorial representations by Mantagna as far back as the fifteenth century AD. However, it is a relatively "new" breed in the rest of the world, the majority of the present bloodlines tracing back to four Italian Spinoni imported to Great Britain in 1981. Since then, the breed has increased steadily in popularity. In her book, Carolyn Fry recounts its history, drawing on comments from prominent contemporary Italian breeders to give the Italian picture and detailing the successes of the Spinone in the show ring and the field in Great Britain. For those new to the breed, she describes it so that you can decide whether it is right for you; for those who decide that it is, she gives hints on how to make your choice. For those who are already "hooked", she has written a detailed chapter on breeding, and there are pedigrees of winning British-bred Spinoni and Italian imports. There is also a chapter describing the various activities that you and your Spinone can enjoy - in the show ring, the field or even on the stage! Liberally illustrated with color photographs and line drawings, this book will be compulsive reading for anyone fascinated by the Italian Spinone. The sections on field trialing and gundog work will naturally be of interest to gundog owners.
