Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petit - week 26Updated : 21/06/2017

THERE were quite a few red-faced judges at Border Union. No, not from embarrassment but from spending hours judging in full sun. What glorious weather exhibitors were treated to at this show, which has always been a favourite of mine. Such a shame that we lost CCs there, with the last ones being awarded in 2011. Nonetheless,...

AT THREE Counties, with only one absent, there were 24 for Stella Blackmore to go over. DCC and BOB went to Reid’s Maudaxi Nick Nack and BCC went to Lewis’ Debucher Sybelle avec Callydena, who had gained her third CC at Bath.      Unusually, both RCCs went to the puppy class winners with Lewi...

Bassets Griffons Vendéen, Petit - week 24Updated : 08/06/2017

NOTHING gets people talking more than when a judge withholds at a championship show. A dog can win and the exhibitor gets a ‘congratulations’ and we all move on to the next show. However, be excused from the ring and the show results display the enigmatic word ‘withheld’ and this fires up all sorts of...

A GOOD gathering of breed enthusiasts travelled from the UK to Fontenay-le-Comte in the Vendée for the 44th Exposition Nationale d'Élevage which took place on Saturday, May 27 in this beautiful Renaissance town. Around 377 Griffons Vendéens took part, with 136 PBGVs topping the breed entries. Dogs were j...

KEN SINCLAIR had two absent from his entry of 23 at SKC. DCC and BOB went to the winner of LD, O’Brien’s Caldewriver Despicable Me (Jayanel Edwardo ex J Daisy Doo), handled by Claire Cooper. RDCC was Robertson and Doherty’s Ch Soletrader Magic Mike (Boom Chicago van Tum-Tum’s Vriendjes ex Ch S Peek a ...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petits - week 21Updated : 18/05/2017

THOSE giving CCs for the first time invariably attract a larger than normal entry as has been proved the case for Bath where a good gathering of 40/41 PBGVs will be awaiting Val Jackson (Duntech) on bank holiday Monday. On to Southern Counties later in the week where, with an overseas judge for us, there are 24/31 for doyen ...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petit - week 20Updated : 11/05/2017

AT THE National, despite the sun, it was breezy and chilly. Frank Kane had just three absent from his entry of 39. DCC and BOB went to Sara Robertson and Wendy Doherty’s Ch Soletrader Magic Mike. RDCC was Jane Brown’s Soletrader Valentino Rossi.       From VB, RCC and BV went to Paul Osb...

NEWS OF arrangements for Yvonne Dean’s funeral reached me just in time to be added onto the end of her obituary in last week’s Dog World. It is repeated here for those who did not see. Following a private funeral service for family only on Thursday May 11, all friends are invited to attend the celebration of her ...

BY NOW, most of you will know about the death of BGVC president Yvonne Dean, who had only recently celebrated her 81st birthday. A tribute appears in the obituary section. Yvonne was secretary from 1988, the year in which the club held its first championship show at Malvern, to 2007 when ill health obliged her to stand down....

THE BGVC E-Voice came out over Easter. This milestone edition went by without mention but, hard to believe, it was the 50th since the first one in January 2011. Editor Sue Brundle deserves a medal for tenacity especially as, in the early days, it came out monthly! Of course, like so many jobs done by committee members and cl...

CONGRATULATIONS to Sara Robertson who piloted Ch Soletrader Magic Mike to BIS at Hound Association of Scotland. Breed judge was Mike Maclaren, BIS Moray Armstrong.      The breed entry of 11 was depleted by two. BB went to Reid’s Maudaxi Ja Maica Me Crazy, RBD Reid’s M Nick Nack, RBB Wyllie&r...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petits - week 15Updated : 05/04/2017

A SPECTACULAR PBGVCA National took place end of March into early this month at Charlotte, North Carolina. With each year’s show moving from one region to another and all intent on improving on the previous show, the American events are run on a much grander scale than we could ever envisage here. To give you an idea of...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petit - week 14Updated : 30/03/2017

A LULL in shows now, although there have been some successes at open shows. At Retford Mandy Kenna showed Black Majesty Gossip Girl at Cynetkoy to BOB under Mary Deats, G1 under David Howarth and BIS3 under Mary Deats again. At Herts and Essex Paul Osbourne’s Debucher Yolanthe avec Braego went PG4 and our Beaujons Ugly...

THIRTY-SEVEN members attended the BGVC AGM which took place at Corley on March 18 before the club open show. Chairman Paul Osbourne thanked all attending, the committee and others who give their time freely, including those working on behalf of breed health, rescue and members who supported educational events such as Discove...

CRUFTS is over for another year. There were nine absent from Marion Hunt’s entry of 87. This year’s figures were boosted by PBGVs from the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Italy, Croatia, Poland, Slovak Republic and Denmark. However top awards stayed with UK-bred PBGVs with both CCs going to Soletrader.   ...

AS CRUFTS gets in full swing, publication timing means you must wait for ringside news for a while, though of course most will know the results or have seen them published. With the usual paucity of news before the great day, as a slight diversion here’s something that only touches slightly on PBGVs and the great days ...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petit - week 9Updated : 23/02/2017

FOLLOWING the outcry about the poor live streaming, this year’s Westminster has come in for further criticism. Unfortunately, the new floor covering gave many dogs and their handlers quite a few problems. Gone was the slippery green carpet, replaced by what some could only be described as an experience of kneeling on a...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petit - week 8Updated : 16/02/2017

THERE were 16 PBGVs entered at this year’s Westminster KC for judge James G Reynolds. Frustrations were running high on social media as, this year, changes had been made to live streaming, leaving most overseas enthusiasts unable to view and even those in the States confused about how to go about it. Thanks to Bensri S...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petit - week 7Updated : 09/02/2017

OPEN SHOWS are in full swing at the moment in the lead up to Crufts. At Caledonian Stee and Lorna Wyllie’s Callydena Diamond Star (Debucher Quel Chance avec Tangaer ex Ch T Rhapsdy at C), handled by Anne McLennan, went G4 and their young pup Tangaer Calvera (Callydena Baileys on Ice ex Debucher Sybelle avec C) went PG1...
