Ch Wimpole Peter is one of six paintings Henry Reginald Cooke commissioned of his Flat Coated Retrievers from Maud Earl. Peter was bred by F Keen and was by Black Drake, a dog bred and owned by Harding Cox, and a grandson of Ch Dareth, considered to be the partriarch of all present day Flat Coats'. Peter's great-granddaughter, Culham Lassie, a golden Flat Coated Retriever, was the grand-dam of the Golden Retriever, Dual Ch Balcombe Boy, bred by Viscount Harcourt, and an influential sire who is probably behind all today's Golden Retriever titleholders

Mrs Florence Nagle, owned the two Irish Setters Valla D'Or and Sheilin D'Or. Mrs Nagle was a great friend of Aldin, the friendship being formed through Mrs Nagle's friendship at finishing school in Paris with Aldin's daughter, Gwen. Mrs Nagle trialled her Setters from the 1920s to the 1960s, during which time she made up 18 Field Trial Champions. She help strong beliefs that her dogs should be good lookers as well as good workers and both Valla and Sheilin were winners in the show ring. In the field, Sheilin was the first Irish Setter to win the Champion Stakes, which she did in 1927. The Kennel Club acquired the two paintings following the death of Mrs Nagle in 1988, aged 94. Mrs Nagle maintained that Valla and Sheilin were inseparable in life and should remain so in death and their pictures hang side by side
