Salukis - week 22Updated : 26/05/2017

IT IS with great sadness that I learned of the death of Joan Davies on May 3 after a long illness, as reported in last week’s DOG WORLD. Joan and husband Owen owned the Lusaki affix and showed and coursed their Salukis. Her first Saluki was, I believe, Karista Of Arabesque in 1971, then Burydown Diena of Lusaki from Ho...

Salukis - week 20Updated : 12/05/2017

THERE seems to be so much more bad news than good at the moment. I was so very sorry to hear about the terrible fire which has destroyed the beautiful home of Phyllida and Marcus Cooke over Easter. It was a grade 2 listed cottage and seems to have started upstairs or in the roof. While waiting for the fire brigade neighbours...

Salukis - week 18Updated : 28/04/2017

THE NEWS has been dominated by the awful theft of Buzz Faber’s young Saluki, Rosie, after a break in at her home whilst she was attending the vets with another dog. Posters and publicity have been arranged with the help of Doglost, but please everyone spread the word, print out posters and report anything remotely hope...

CONGRATULATIONS to Tricia Ulyatt who won the hound group recently at Kent open show and so qualified Fernlark L’aunisien in Cornhaze for his ShCM.      Schedules and shows will start to come thick and fast now as the show season hots up.

Salukis - week 6Updated : 03/02/2017

ALTHOUGH there were no CCs at Boston there was a reasonable entry for Lynne Hewson. BD and BOB was Goulden’s Fernlark By Design who went on to win G2 which is a lovely boost for Kelvin who has been rather poorly but pleased to say looking much better. RBD was my own Amal Hayati Odhedar El Azizi Fuadi of Ilsham. BB made...

Salukis - week 52Updated : 19/12/2016

THE LAST championship show of the year has come and gone but it was a very exciting end for John and Caroline Owen who now own their first champion, Caryna Curetes. He came from veteran class to win the CC under Lisa Hudson. Coco was bred by Denise Garratt and is by Glenoak Inqi ex C Nashira.      ...

Salukis - week 46Updated : 11/11/2016

I SEEM to be the bearer of bad news in abundance recently. Lisa and John Hudson have had to say goodbye to Ch Glenoak Inqi and Kasra Ni’mah of Glenoak in the past few weeks. Inqi was 14 years old and won BOB at Crufts in 2010 and Nimah 15 years old so good long and enjoyable lives.      Jenny Zim...

Salukis - week 45Updated : 04/11/2016

MIDLAND Counties celebrated Halloween a little early with pumpkins on the tables. Some fun loving Salukiphiles decided witches hats were the order of the day and Caroline Pickering’s cupcakes were also a spooky theme – but delicious.      Inside the ring Jeanette Cotterill was officiating a...

Salukis - week 43Updated : 21/10/2016

THE SALUKI or Gazelle Hound Club held a successful championship show at the KC Building at Stoneleigh. There was a very nice atmosphere and the committee worked hard to ensure the smooth running of the show. The calendars and the Saluki magazine are always available at this show and are once again excellent publications not ...

Salukis - week 42Updated : 13/10/2016

THE NORTHERN Saluki Club open show was able to be held outside although the weather grew rather chilly after lunch so the welfare fun classes were held inside but this did make for a really nice atmosphere. Sue Virgo judged the breed show. BIS was Denise Garratt and Sue Oakey’s Ch Caryna Meilichia. Mary Parker had a ve...

Salukis - week 39Updated : 22/09/2016

DARLINGTON took place at Ripon Racecourse. The venue is compact and there was a good aisle of trade stands, though there didn’t seem as many as usual. Liz Cartledge judged the breed and found her BOB in John and Caroline Owen’s Caryna Curetese, giving him his second CC. BCC was a fourth for Denise Garratt and Sha...

Salukis - week 38Updated : 16/09/2016

CITY OF Birmingham was judged by Colin Ashmore who found his DCC and BOB in Alan and Janette Glaister’s Ch Classicus Cassander. They also won BP with their new import Vanechka Otis S Berega Turi. Paul and Ann Shimmin took the BCC with Hisilome’s Keepsake for Cranstal. RDCC was Marie Bryce-Smith’s Kasaque Ra...

Salukis - week 37Updated : 09/09/2016

BERYL was the first chairman of the Northern SC and donated a picture for BIS at the open show, but it seems to be missing. I should be extremely grateful if people could have a look for it and return it to a member of the committee. It should be in a varnished wooden box that Phil Beeley made for it.    &n...

Salukis - week 36Updated : 02/09/2016

MY APOLOGIES for the lack of notes in the last few weeks, as many may already know I have been nursing my mum, Beryl Payne, through her terminal illness and she died on Aug 25. Arrangements are not yet finalised but if anyone would like to know them please contact me. I will leave obituaries to other kind people but would li...

Salukis - week 29Updated : 15/07/2016

SALUKIS featured strongly in the hound group competitions at Blackpool with Alan and Jeanette Glaister’s top winning Ch Classicus Cassander taking top spot in the main hound group, Annette Cole taking second place in the puppy group with El-Ubaids Vision Kerma Belle for Doucai and also fourth place in the junior group....

Salukis - week 26Updated : 24/06/2016

THE RING for Three Counties was inside a large hall/barn, but was very pleasant and safe from the rain. Liz Stephen was our judge and she found her BCC and BOB in Kathy Webb’s Ch Al Caliphs Nuray, still showing the youngsters a clean pair of heels despite being ten years old – a credit to her owner. DCC was a cro...

Salukis - week 24Updated : 10/06/2016

THERE were no CCs at Bath this year but that didn’t stop a Saluki reaching the top spot in the hound group – Brian Mansell and Josh Duddell’s Ch Jasmine of Canerikie, handled as usual by Luke Johnston. Debbie Copperthwaite had a good day winning BD with Noushzad Caliph and RBB with Al Caliphs Artemis. Ham, ...

Salukis- week 23Updated : 06/06/2016

THE LAST time I went to SKC we were in the cattle bays and tents and the rings were outside – although the show was rather segregated it was a pleasant area, if the weather was decent. Admittedly the wet weather rings were cramped but I have to say that I would have preferred that to the dark, noisy and cramped hall in...
