Bloodhounds - week 22Updated : 25/05/2017

SKC TOOK place, it was a cold rainy day and as normal for this show the judging was inside. I thought the planes were noisier this time, making the whole building vibrate, on occasions.      Our judge, was breed specialist Ian Layfield found his DCC and BOB in my Ch Railside Pluto at Quikotic. RDCC and B...

BIRMINGHAM National was a blustery day, with warm sunshine but boy was that wind cold, it was a case of warming up in the sunshine out the wind, then cooling off in the shade, out of the wind. We had a long wait to get into the ring and the Tents were making all kinds of noises in the wind that the hounds really don’t ...

FIRST I need to amend the results for the ABB open show – I was given duff information, so here are the correct results: RBD was Shaw-Browne’s Kingshart Middleman, and not Rowland’s Marwel Spirit of Bloodhound at Rafehound Kennels as previously stated. Apologies for all involved, at least it shows that the ...

Bloodhounds - week 17Updated : 24/04/2017

JUST IN case anyone wants to poke their toe over the water and try showing in Europe... we are very UK based here as we are spoilt with so many shows to choose from, but it is definitely a good experience and something that if you can get the time and the money to do so, is well worth the trip.      Once...

Bloodhounds - week 16Updated : 13/04/2017

THE ABB held its AGM and open show in glorious sunshine at Tollerton Nottinghamshire. Hopefully you will have all returned the trophies to Ian Sayles on the day or before the event to ensure they could be awarded again. If you haven’t, then please get in touch with Ian or Robert Johnson-Ferguson to discuss getting thes...

Bloodhounds - week 15Updated : 05/04/2017

ISN’T IT wonderful now the longer lighter evenings are here. It’s good to be able to get out with the hounds in an evening and not have to rush to get back before the darkness falls. It’s not necessarily the dark that is the problem, speaking for myself it is the startled badgers that I sometimes stumble ac...

Bloodhounds - week 12Updated : 17/03/2017

SO CRUFTS has been and gone again for another year, it always amazes me how many photographs people take of random dogs what do they do with them all, and what bandwagons the daily newspapers can jump in this week to apparently highlight issues, that most dog people have known about or been discussing, for months before. &n...

Bloodhounds - week 10Updated : 02/03/2017

IT IS WITH great shock and sadness that I have been informed of the sudden death of Colin Grant. He, with his long term partner Lindsey Randall, used to attend trials with their hounds Hamish and Monty, so those of you who attended trials in those days will remember them both as a really lovely, genuine couple with a true pa...

Bloodhounds - week 9Updated : 23/02/2017

THE BLOODHOUND Club held its AGM at Baginton Village Hall, Coventry, which included the annual awarding of prizes and awards and then there was a small auction of artwork donated to the club, which went well and raised money to go to good Bloodhound related projects. This was followed by the spring open show, although the da...

IT IS THE time of the year when the first working trials of 2017 is due to take place. That means packing the car with all the things you could need, for both you and the hounds. It always amazes me as to how much stuff we can all manage to cram into our vehicles, because you never know it might be needed.    ...

MANCHESTER brought with it the fog, disrupting people’s journeys – many people were stuck in traffic, having to make mad dashes into the venue to ensure they made their classes.      The car parking too seemed to be problematic as the wet weather made some of the normal plentiful parking area...

Bloodhounds - week 3Updated : 11/01/2017

JANUARY is in full swing, with the weather truly not knowing what it wants to do; it goes very cold then warms up into higher temperature for the time of year, then there’s a bitter wind and a clear night frost, followed by thick fog. My hounds are losing their coats in handfuls, almost as they do in spring; even the b...
