Norwegian Elkhounds - week 17Updated : 20/04/2017

THERE’S no show news at all this week, but I do have news from our breed health co-ordinator of research into the cause of Alabama rot, the horrible, often fatal disease that has hit dogs worldwide and which has scientists and vets stumped as to the cause. In a local Malvern Observer news edition, it was reported that ...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 16Updated : 13/04/2017

FINALLY, there are some show results. Of course, last week was the Hound Association of Scotland’s ch show at Ingliston; a move from Kelso which some people loved and others didn’t. Kelso, with the judging mostly outdoors, always seemed to be bitterly cold, but was in such a beautiful location and ideal for anyon...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 15Updated : 06/04/2017

THERE’S very little to report this week as the show season is only just getting started. By the time these notes appear HAS will be over as well as the NEAS open show where Tanja Mortimer is judging. I don’t know the entry for the open show but the entry for HAS is pretty good for Scotland with 29 dogs making an ...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 14Updated : 30/03/2017

THERE’S just one show to mention this week and as it’s an open show I can’t give all details. At the Houndshow open show, Treena Maun’s Bowerhinton Brouhaha took BOB and was pulled out in the final selection for BIS and Cowper’s Kestos Nimrod of Rothenborg, not only won BP but was also PG4. &nb...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 13Updated : 22/03/2017

I FEEL as if I’ve started almost every notes recently with sad news. This time Enid and Malcolm Hicks have lost their dear Keisha at 15 years old, Fr/Lux/Int Ch Malenibo Lakeisha, who was born on Feb 14, 2002. When they get to that age you half expect something to happen during the year but not what happened to Keisha....

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 12Updated : 15/03/2017

IT’S ALL over and done for another year with no apparent horror stories or big complaints except for the utterly dreadful TV coverage. I didn’t even hear of any traffic hold ups. I’m talking about Crufts of course. I know I wasn’t the only person who thought the TV coverage was utter rubbish. That ear...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 11Updated : 07/03/2017

ONLY ONE show report this week. Congratulations to Tanja Mortimer with Laakso Allgold’s Special One (Iska) who went to her first show after moving to Wales; Newtown and walked off with RBIS. BIS judge was Mike Vines the well-known Buhund and group judge.      Congratulations also to the Middletons ...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 10Updated : 02/03/2017

I MUST start this week with an apology and a correction. Last week, when writing about the Kent Superdog, I inadvertently credited ownership of Solly to Pauline Clarke. He is of course Ch Yggdrasil Winter Solstice, owned by Jacquetta Brown.      Unfortunately, it is now too late to give news of the arran...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 9Updated : 23/02/2017

I REGRET that I have to start again this week with sad news and deepest sympathy to Gill Bingham who lost her mum Stella Worral on Feb 19. She was 95. The ahem, ‘older’ ones of us will remember Stella well, who, along with Sheila Greaves manned the refreshments at the club shows for many years with such smiling f...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 8Updated : 16/02/2017

I’M SAD to have to start this week with the news that Sheila Walters has had to say goodbye to Huistenbosch Aksel at Breckslake (Tori) also known on occasion as Worzel, on Saturday Feb 4. He was born on May 4, 2008. He had cancer of the spleen and the tumour ruptured. It was very sudden. Condolences to Sheila.  &...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 7Updated : 08/02/2017

NO SHOW news this week, but a lovely phone call from Pat Houghton who said the breed notes are now her only way of keeping up with what’s going on in the breed. It’s nice to know someone reads them and not everyone relies on instant internet and mobile phones. There are people out here who still prefer the printe...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 6Updated : 03/02/2017

I’D LIKE to start this week with two sets of congratulations to Tanja Mortimer. For the first well done at Litchfield her Grasilva Cruggleton with Laakso (Mya) won the junior stakes under the judge, Mick Taylor. The second congratulations are that three days later she moved herself and all her dogs to a new house in Wa...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 5Updated : 26/01/2017

AT LAST I have a championship show to report on. It seems an absolute age since the last one and this time there were some comparatively new names in the top placings. It was Manchester of course judged by Espen Engh. With hounds being on a Thursday it does affect entries. People have to work and children are at school but t...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

I RECEIVED the following this week from Val Tiller who so kindly organises for test samples to be sent off all together saving people the trouble and expense of sending their own. OptiGen are now offering better than ever discounts on DNA tests, at Val Tiller’s postal OptiGen 20/20 clinic, shipping Feb 22.   ...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 3Updated : 11/01/2017

IT WOULD seem that several club members have not received their magazine and details of the AGM and Contest of Champions. These were all sent out before Christmas. If you haven’t had yours, contact Lind Middleton or, for the show entry forms and details, contact Margaret Deuchar. The Contest and AGM take place at Nettl...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 2Updated : 06/01/2017

APOLOGIES for the brief notes this week, but there’s very little news. I almost forgot to do them. There is to be a Kent Elkhound walk on Jan 29 at High Elms Country Park, BR6 7 Orpington, Bromley. Meet in the car park at 1.30pm for a 1.45pm start.      BOB and G3 at Coventry Ladies Kennel Societ...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 1Updated : 29/12/2016

A VERY happy new year to one and all. I hope your Christmas went well with no doggy upset tummies from over indulging. As we look to the new year, the show season has started already with Manchester entries already having closed.      The Middletons finished off 2016 with a bang when two of their bitch...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 52Updated : 19/12/2016

ON DEC 18, nine Elkhounds and their owners had a lovely Christmas walk together in Yorkshire complete with tinsel, Santa hats, various festive jumpers and festive shaped treats for both dogs and humans. Well done Lindsey Smith for organising it. These walks are becoming very popular. Another was arranged in Kent with yet ano...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 51Updated : 14/12/2016

ENID HICKS from France had a terrific weekend with Fr Ch Naraena Magnus, aka Jaxon who is also Lux Jnr Ch. She attended two shows. Friday’s show was the Holland Cup international show and Sunday was Amsterdam Winners Show. At both shows Jaxon was graded ‘Excellent’ which is very important because without th...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 50Updated : 07/12/2016

LAST WEEK I mentioned two Elkhound walks in the South, so here’s a reminder that Lindsey Smith is arranging another Yorkshire walk on Dece 18 at the usual venue, Copton Forest, near Pickering. The walk starts at 11.30am.      An early reminder too that the AGM of the NECGB and Contest of Champion...
