(March 2016) - One of the ways to support the work of The Epagneul Breton Foundation is through donations given in a person’s honor. The foundation was pleased to receive its first such significant gift from Mr. Forrest “Bud” Ward and Mr. Larry Kimbler from Texas. They made a generous $500 donation in honor and appreciation of R. L. Dalrymple, with whom they enjoyed a great quail hunt during the 2015 season on the Dalrymple farm in Thomas, Oklahoma. R. L. has served as president and is a founding member of CEB-US, the Club de L’Epagneul Breton of the United States, and has been a devoted breeder, hunter and enthusiast of the Epagneul Breton since the early 1980s.
