German Ch. Cornlands Rupertbear had a lifespan of 16.5 years. He led an eventful life as a dual purpose labrador who was both a successful show dog and working gundog. In his long life he won a lot of prizes in show and field trial competitions. German Ch. Cornlands Ruperbear had a good sense of humour and was a charming dog who was eager to please. Rupertbear’s positive attitude to life and work made him a role model for his pack.
German Ch. Cornlands Rupertbear was bred by Mrs. Peggy Rae whose Cornlands kennel has existed for more than 60 years. In England and in the world she was highly estimated as a breeder and a judge. Behind German Ch. Cornlands Rupertbear lies a treasure trove of Cornlands: many lines back to Ch. Cornlands Peter So Gay, Ch. Cornlands Westelm Flight, and Ch. Cornlands Kimvalley Crofter and then the lines to Ch. Cornlands My Fair Lady and Ch. Cornlands Blonde Lady.
German Ch. Cornlands Rupertbear was instantly recognisable as an East Anglian Poppleton-based yellow who with a number of the Cornlands earned the right to be deemed dual-purpose.
