THERE seems to have been a bit of a mix up about the BOB at Boston. The Fosse Data print out put the BB as BOB and this is what appeared in the write-up on the show in the dog papers. However, Liz Ede’s critique appeared in the same papers as the main show report and she stated that the BD, Maggy Halliday’s Ch Ye...

THERE is a distinct lack of news this week so it looks as though these notes will be the shortest I have ever written!       The only item I have is that at Woolwich and Gil Powell’s Kimgilee Maori Secret went BP and PG4, which is the second such award she has received. The breed was judged ...
