Beagles - week 19Updated : 04/05/2017

DEVON, Cornwall and South West BC attracted a nice entry for its ch show. The committee decided to ‘brave the elements’ and run the show outside which made for an interesting display of inclement weather fashions!

SERENA Parker let me have the sad news that Yvonne Dean (Deanound) had died quietly on April 24 having celebrated her 81st birthday only the previous week.

THE SAD news reached me this week that David Webster (Webline) had very sadly died at the grand age of 93. David was the president of the Beagle Club and a former breed note writer of 47 years!

THE NEW show season started with a lovely sunny day for Four Counties ch show judged by Ruth Lockett-Walters (Ralines Dachshunds).

WELL, CRUFTS is over and this year our judge Mike Caple found his DCC and BOB in the shape of Mel Spavin’s Ch Dialynne Peter Piper who was also shortlisted in a very strong group.

VERONICA Bradley rang me to let me know she has lost Ch Dufosee Hyperion. He was very much Ken’s boy and so he was special. His illness was something of a shock as he had just been unwell and Veronica thought she would come back from the vets with some tablets and that would deal with the problem. Perry never left the ...

Beagles - week 8Updated : 16/02/2017

THE NORTHERN and Midland Counties BC held its open show at Shirland. Judge Kelly Nash had an excellent entry to go over, which I’m sure made her long journey from Dorset worthwhile.
