Norwegian Elkhounds - week 26Updated : 22/06/2017

HOW HAVE your dogs been coping with the recent heatwave? We haven’t been able to sleep even with fans running all over the house so I can’t imagine how it’s felt to a dog in a heavy coat. My girl hasn’t even wanted to go outside to wee during the day. Her walks have been late evening and then taken in...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 25Updated : 15/06/2017

THE ONLY show to report on this week was Three Counties where of course we have no CCs. The entry, however, was very low indeed with just nine dogs for William Croxford, the judge.      I really don’t understand such a low entry at such a beautiful show when the previous week, also without CCs, dre...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 24Updated : 08/06/2017

DIANE COOK (Tedandi) was the judge for Southern Counties where class entries were just one and two, but almost all classes had entries which is good for a show without CCs.      BD and BOB went to Jill Cowper’s Rothenborg Olav. Jill has asked me to pass on her sincere apologies to the judge and any...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 23Updated : 01/06/2017

BANK HOLIDAY Monday was hound day at Bath. After the heatwave of the previous week, the weather broke with tremendous thunderstorms in some areas and I think everyone was expecting a mud Bath. The rain must have been very noisy for those in tents and caravans but thankfully the ground is much better drained these days and th...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 22Updated : 25/05/2017

SKC HAD quite a small entry, especially in males for Mr K D Sinclair to judge with only one in JD, two PG and one veteran; no males in limit or open at all. Bitches fared better with only PGB and VB having no entries. However, he had no trouble in choosing quality dogs for the top placings.      BCC and ...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 21Updated : 18/05/2017

FOR ANYONE in Lancashire I’m pleased to report that Goosnargh and Longridge show will have two Elkhound classes. It’s a lovely agricultural show with lots happening, especially for children.      There is no show news this week but two weekends ago, one of our new Elkhound owners took part in...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 20Updated : 11/05/2017

THE SHOW season has now started in earnest and the National gave two exhibitors the day that dreams are made of. For new exhibitors, their first ever champion and for his breeder a championship also for his sister and BP with another male. New champion littermates on the same day don’t happen very often. Jeff Horswell ...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 19Updated : 04/05/2017

I ALMOST forgot about WELKS last weekend as we haven’t had CCs there in such a very long time. This year there were only three dogs entered for Marion Sargent to go over. How we can ever hope for a better classification if so few support the classes I don’t know.          ...

Norwegian Elkhounds - week 18Updated : 27/04/2017

LAST WEEKEND was the NECGB championship show held at Ryton as usual. The weather was dry and eventually turned out sunny but the morning was so cold that the judging was held inside. Apart from the usual breed classes, there were also three special classes which were judged by Colin Ashmore. Special award yearling dog/bitch ...

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...
