Anakin was our first ever Pointer, our first who joined us in mid 1999 after we visited friends whose Pointer bitch had just had pups – after much debate whether to have orange ‘n white or black ‘n white, we chose -well you can see what we chose! A beautiful pointer dog – then called Domino Jack something or other!

Anakin was a lovely, almost regal acting dog who liked nothing more than to be cuddled (lots)- he’d usually be found lying on his masters lap on the settee! In fact being a bit of a tart – any lap would have done!! He was very nosey and always on the wander – either seeking trouble, cuddles or grub! With his preference to rule to roost, he was usually nicking everything that Reebok had. Mind you – he might have been the first to bark at unusual noises, but he was a real softy. He used to sleep inside his big pillow-type bed as he liked to be very snug.

Anakin didn’t like rain – he used to get under the umbrella with us!! Swimming was not Anakin’s stroke either – I nudged him into a relatively shallow freshwater stream on holiday in Dorset only to find that he sank straight to the bottom. I had to jump in and rescue him!! Water and Anakin were never as strawberries and cream.

Anakin was the inspirational catalyst for the Ledgands website and was the face of the Ledgands Pointer Forum. 

Anakin was diagnosed with a spinal compression injury in late 2008. After 7 months of treatment, Anakin was laid to rest on 3rd June 2009. He now enjoys eternal sunshine. He will live on in our hearts and memories forever. Rest in peace Anny. xx

“Ledgands Jedi Knight took my eye immediately for his medium size, such a balanced dog with a quality look. Very fine high set ears, deep stop, round eye, nicely turned muzzle, superb coat, looks like a thoroughbred, nice bone, legs & feet, very nice tail and sweep of hindquarters, holds himself well on the move.”
