Vespa arrived at Ledgands on 14th May 2011…and yes, she is China’s granddaughter and Nemo’s daughter! At one time we had all three generations in the same house – OMG, what did we let ourselves in for? Fiona, Kim, mummy Pandora and auntie Lottie did a fantastic job of raising her to be a healthy handful ! Her bothers Cooper, Sandy and Oakley all have fab homes too.
By far, the easiest Pointer we had the privilege of. Vespa wanted nothing more than to be cuddled and to be given lots of attention. Such a loving Pointer!
Vespa had no fear – she soon let China, Nemo and Summer know that she is boss. We often found Vespa on top of one of the others and usually has them pinned to the floor having lots of fun with them. If they didn’t want to play, she had a good bark to encourage them to get out of their lazy beds and play.
Vespa loved foraging in the hedges and often came running out with treasure – usually some rotting grass or some branch she had stolen from one of the hawthorns. Vespa needed no moped – she made her own speed! She was always eating something! Vespa had a habit of eating dandelions – she was like a lawn mower going around the field to hunt them all down!
She had good success in the show ring (see list below). Vespa was laid to rest on 13th March 2023.
