Italian Spinoni - 8Updated : 16/02/2017

IT LOOKS like winter is over for now and back to the wet and damp. Spring is getting closer with evenings lighter. Oh joy. Now I am back to wet dogs, plenty of muck and slobber in the car after a most enjoyable walk across the fields where the mud is knee deep with foxes marking everywhere. Don’t you just love that fra...

Italian Spinoni - week 7Updated : 09/02/2017

HERE WE are again and I am so pleased to receive some emails and a really nice letter from Sonia Grief (Goldfly) so a bit of good news for the breed which has been a bit thin on the ground of late as we are still very much in the quiet times.      Goldfly Flowers Gay Gossip (Dazzle) at 18 months old has ...

Italian Spinoni - week 6Updated : 02/02/2017

TIME FOR another write-up. How time flies, feels like I only wrote a few days ago. The weather has changed yet again. Down here it has been really foggy and damp but dogs must go out. I have taken them across the fields these past few weeks ‘safer’ than going in the forest where I can’t see if I am walking ...

Italian Spinoni - week 5Updated : 27/01/2017

NEWS FROM around the show world is a bit thin on the ground this time but what has happened on the home front one may ask. The saga continues. Well actually, it’s a bit of a turnaround in this household. Riva who wouldn’t eat food unless it came from Grandson’s ‘high chair’ has now decided that ...

Italian Spinoni - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

HOW TIME flies! Just as I think I have a moment to myself then oops need to get pen to paper and get my notes sorted. It is still very quiet out there.      So my question to myself is what shall I write about in these notes. There must be something going on out there so an idea came to me. How about put...

Italian Spinoni - week 3Updated : 12/01/2017

FIRST of all I would like to apologise for no breed notes in the new year issue – week 52. I obviously got my deadline wrong hence lots of notes in the first issue of 2017.      Not much going on around the shows at the moment – it’s been nice to have a bit of a break. I expect that a...

Italian Spinoni - week 2Updated : 06/01/2017

THIS BREED never stops to surprise me. I have discovered that a rather picky dog named Riva loves all the food that is thrown on the floor by my grandson but put that same food in the dish and it is nose up and a disgusted expression. The worst part is that Riva sits and drools waiting for the food to drop. It is rather comi...

Italian Spinoni - week 1Updated : 28/12/2016

SO HERE we are, 2017 has arrived and all the festivities thankfully over for another year. No more fireworks and the dogs can chill.      A bit too much to eat and drink which is the tradition and that first real walk after having gorged ourselves is a bit of a chore. That extra kilo on man and his fri...

Italian Spinoni - week 51Updated : 14/12/2016

CHRISTMAS is upon us and all the mayhem that it brings. Cooking, cleaning, making sure everything looks good and making sure the dogs are safe and happy. Yeah and this thing about keeping the house clean! Not much chance of that. The dogs have started digging again so I am considering growing potatoes up the walls. They don&...

Italian Spinoni - week 50Updated : 07/12/2016

FIRST I have some information for you to keep in mind with regards to what I can and cannot put into my notes and by permission from Dog World to mention this. I have been advised by DW’s editorial department the following. They do not leave in championship show after a general championship show name as most people wil...

Italian Spinoni - week 49Updated : 01/12/2016

WELL, HERE we are with my first proper notes. It might take a while for me to catch up with all the news so I am sure some of you go ohh that’s late and out of date but my first paper went out on Dec 2 (or week 48). For those who take both paper and paper free Dog World you will see that the notes are up and running mo...

Italian Spinoni - week 48Updated : 23/11/2016

AS YOUR new breed correspondent for DOG WORLD, I would like to do a very short introduction about myself before I really get going in the next issue.      I have been involved with dogs all my life. I was born in Norway and brought up with working gundogs. I have been showing dogs since I was 13 years ...

Italian Spinoni - week 40Updated : 28/09/2016

THE SEPTEMBER weather is all over the place isn’t it? Hot baking sun for some hours and then stormy winds and torrential rain by the evening on some days. So when I was preparing to leave home with Julie (Bannonbrig Juliet Bravo) to take part in the Pedigree Paws United charity walk for the Peek-A-Boo Trust I went prep...
