Geoffrey had a rather unusual start to life, winning consistently for his new owner but determined to escape.  After the final escapade, when he was was found over one hundred miles away, we asked to buy him back.  He then went to live an extremely happy and comfortable life in Wales with Diana Sadler.  We co-owned him with Diana and helped to keep him winning in the ring, including taking him to Denmark in 2006.

The next day she followed this up by winning the Hound Puppy Group at Worthing.
