Spaniels, Clumber - week 13Updated : 23/03/2017

AS A FOLLOW on from last week’s notes about Crufts, we all had a very nice drink and food following the judging to celebrate Sue Williams turning 70. I understand that the cake was provided by Izzie Hurst and very nice it was too. I must admit Sue certainly wears well and I would not have guessed she was 70.  &nb...

Pomeranians - week 13Updated : 23/03/2017

CRUFTS dawned bright and early, the weather was kind to us and we had a dry and bright start to walk in from the car parks. Thanks go to Jean and Bill Stone who had brought chalk and arrived early to check the ring and mark any loose grates with a cross. Nothing is worse than having a dog put off, possibly forever, by either...

Papillons - week 13Updated : 23/03/2017

OUR HEARTS go out to all involved in the Westminster tragedy, families never to be the same again. At times like this your heart weighs heavy with an emptiness of despair. The world holding claim to callous destruction and famine has to change and unite, just alone for the reason of the joy of living.    &nbs...

West Highland White Terriers - week 13Updated : 23/03/2017

TWO OF our Westie clubs tried a new venture. In an attempt to encourage more interest and entries, the Southern WHWT Club limit show and the WHWT Club of Wales open show were held on the same day at the same venue.
