Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petits - 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...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petits - week 6Updated : 02/02/2017

SINCE the advent of DNA testing for POAG, both the club’s Health Officer for eyes, Vivien Phillips, and Dr Cathryn Mellersh, Head of Canine Genetics at the AHT, have been presented with plaques from the club to thank them for their dedication over the years in working towards finding the mutant gene responsible for POA...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petit - week 5Updated : 27/01/2017

AT MANCHESTER replacement judge Dr Ian Gabriel had three absent from his entry of 19. It was practically a clean sweep for Soletrader with Ch Magic Mike (Boom Chicago van Tum-Tum’s Vriendjes ex Ch S Peek A Boo) going BOB and later G2 under Zola Rawson. BB went to litter sister, Robertson, Doherty and Greenslade’s...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petits - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

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. This is a follow-up session after the PBGV day at the AHT early December. If your PBGV has been DNA tested for the POAG mutati...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petit - week 3Updated : 11/01/2017

AN EXTRAORDINARY DAY for the breed at Boston, where Paul Osbourne’s Ch Nykarth Kicking Off with Braego, bred by Kathryn Moulding, won the hound group under Robin Searle, and Teresa Eaton’s Linphil Kili, bred by Linda Jones and Philip Heard, went PG2 under Ray McDonald.      Wendy Hall had 1...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petits - week 2Updated : 05/01/2017

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 Vendéens, Petits - week 1Updated : 29/12/2016

TIME TO look back at 2016. Well done to the owners of the seven PBGVs who attained championship status: Soletrader Captain Hook, S Louis Vuitton, Maudaxi Coco Chewnel from Marunnel, S Magic Mike, Tagline Double The Fun with S, Trezeguet Plum Crumble with M and a visitor from the Netherlands, Dutch Ch Boom Chicago van Tum-Tum...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petits - week 52Updated : 20/12/2016

THE RECENT gala shows in Orlando where around 31 PBGVs were entered saw top-winning champions Auriga Peter Parker and Soletrader Annie Mac going BOB and BOS at both the AKC National championship, which was judged by Barbara Pepper, and the other two PBGVCA parent specialty shows, judged by Sharon Dok and Dr Edna Martin. Owne...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petits - week 51Updated : 15/12/2016

THE LAST championship show of the year and Graham Hill had 30, less three, to judge at LKA. Phil and Dianne Reid picked up both CCs with DCC going to Maudaxi Tommy Holedigger and BCC, her third, and BOB to Trezeguet Plum Crumble at M, bred by Chris Blake.      Reserves went to a pleasantly surprised Te...

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 ...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petit - week 49Updated : 01/12/2016

OCCASIONALLY there are weeks when there is no news, so rather than you open your DOG WORLD and mutter “no breed notes”, I resort to meanderings. I have just groomed and bathed a much-loved four-year-old PBGV, who is now all smart to go to the vets for her annual health check and booster. I chatted to the owners a...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petits - week 48Updated : 24/11/2016

THOSE who weren’t at the BGVC championship show missed an enjoyable day. The new look show seemed popular with everyone. An abundance of heavily laden tables ranged from Geraldine Dodd’s wonderful raffle, which raised a magnificent £200, to friendly trade stands run by talented BGV owners, all offering BGV ...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petits - week 47Updated : 17/11/2016

THERE is still time to book your PBGV’s place at the important day at the Animal Health Trust on Dec 2, which builds on the progress made in detecting the mutant gene responsible for causing POAG in PBGVs. Head of Canine Genetics, Cathryn Mellersh, has now contacted all owners whose PBGVs have been DNA tested inviting ...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petit - week 46Updated : 10/11/2016

GAVIN and Sara Robertson were on a high at the Eukanuba finals at Chesford Grange where Ch Soletrader Magic Mike, owned by Sara Robertson and Wendy Doherty, won Pup of the Year, also the champion stakes.      And congratulations to happy owners whose PBGVs have gained their ShCM – Ray and Gail Fo...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petits - week 45Updated : 03/11/2016

SOMEWHAT belatedly I learned of the death of Gerd Flyckt-Pedersen, who died on June 16 in Raleigh, North Carolina. Among the many breeds she and husband Geir championed over the years was the first PBGV in Sweden, who also became Sweden’s first champion. She bought him before marrying Geir and, at that time, her name w...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petits - week 44Updated : 27/10/2016

THERE can be no doubt about it, Discover Dogs is as popular as ever and it is thanks to enthusiastic breed people who give up their time that the BGV breed booths were once again popular. I sensed however there were fewer overseas visitors this year but the exhibition hall at London’s ExCel was packed from the moment t...

Bassets Griffons Vendéens, Petit - week 43Updated : 20/10/2016
