Deerhounds - week 16Updated : 13/04/2017

THE SECOND championship show of the season followed swiftly on from the last at the same venue in Edinburgh, such a shame that it is no longer outdoors at Kelso.

Deerhounds - week 15Updated : 06/04/2017

THE BREED show weekend is over for another year but this must have been one of the best. I think this has to be the ideal venue – midway between Scottish and southern exhibitors, only two or three miles of empty roads from the motorway, so very easy to find, and a beautiful old hall when we arrived. We were in a newer ...

Deerhounds - week 12Updated : 16/03/2017

SUE AND Tony Phillips had a great day at Crufts where Joan Wragg was the judge.

She was shortlisted in the group by Graham Hill.    &nbs...

BURNS PET Nutrition Ltd is organising Dogs’ Day Out at Glamis to take place on July 30 and would love it if you could attend the event.

Deerhounds - week 8Updated : 17/02/2017

His litter sister Ch H Because ...

Deerhounds - week 41Updated : 06/10/2016

MY APOLOGIES for getting the results wrong for the Southern limited show.

Deerhounds - week 40Updated : 29/09/2016

IT WAS the turn of the Southern limited show at the weekend, near Oxford. Unfortunately I didn’t mark my catalogue, thinking I would get the results online – how we are spoiled these days and how that goes wrong when they don’t appear!
