Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petit - week 17Updated : 20/04/2017

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...

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...

CRUFTS is over for another year. There were nine absent from Marion Hunt’s entry of 87.

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...

AT MANCHESTER replacement judge Dr Ian Gabriel had three absent from his entry of 19.

SINCE the latest club newsletter went out to members, arrangements are being been firmed up for free eye testing of DNA tested PBGVs and voluntary height measuring at the BGV club open show in March.

CREEPING towards the middle of January, the quiet time of year when the weather is pretty dismal and there is little news. The club open show schedule and entry form are now on www.bgvclub.co.uk, as is the Notice of AGM. The plan is to get as many reports out as possible beforehand for pre-reading, which will speed up the pr...

Bassets Griffons Vendeens, Petits - week 50Updated : 07/12/2016

THE PBGV day at the AHT on Dec 2 started with a gathering of Petits in the aptly named Small Animal Centre, where one by one they were taken into examination rooms for eye testing and measuring of height. The latter was done against a laser beam on a wall. However, it was carried out in a rather confined space where several ...
