Watercolour studies of C Alington’s F.T. Champion Labrador Retrievers “Dazzle” and “Flashy” by Reuben Ward Binks (1880 - 1950). Titled “Dazzle” and “Flashy” and signed and dated bottom right “R Ward Binks 1921”. English 1921.


F.T. Champion Labrador Retrievers “Dazzle” and “Flashy” were very successful winners, and caught widespread recognition, beating the likes of Labradors from Mrs Quentin Dick’s Banchory Kennels and Mr T.W. Twyford’s Whitmore Kennels.

F.T. Champion Flashy, sire was “Start”, dam “Jubilee Daisy”, breed by Captain Duberley, the male line from C Alington’s “Bright”. Flashy won the ‘Retriever Championship Stake’ in 1921, beating Mrs Quentin Dick’s Dual Champion Banchory Sunspeck (2nd), and Major G.D. Astley’s Catton Sancho (3rd). Flashy was also 1st at the Open stake of the Kennel Club meet and 3rd in the Nomination stake of the International Gundog League.

F.T. Champion Dazzle, sire was “Start”, dam “Duchess”, breed by C. N. Tunnard, the male line from “Bright”. Dazzle won the ‘Retriever Championship Stake’ in 1922, beating Mr T.W. Twyford’s Dual Ch. Titus of Whitmore (2nd), and Mrs Quentin Dick’s Dual Champion Banchory Sunspeck (3rd). His score sheet was though even better, 1st in the Nomination stake of the International Gundog League in 1921, then in 1922, 1st at the Open stake of the Kennel Club, and 2nd at the Nomination stake of the International Gundog League.
