Kooikerhondje - week 24Updated : 07/06/2017

FOR THE first time in my showing career (spanning some 50 years) we arrived at Redditch open show just in time for the Kooiker challenge. BOB was Sara Williams’ Cairnbraid Onwaba Lukimbi of Gladsheim and BP was Claire Stewarts’ Duckhills Thistledown Dance of Emmi over Twybrook.      Claire is...

Kooikerhondjes - week 17Updated : 19/04/2017

WELLINGBOROUGH open show held at the Sports Connexion had beautiful day weather-wise, and the night before, a wedding had been held at the venue, so the show had the benefit of lovely ceiling drapes and chandeliers, which added atmosphere and glamour to the event.      Our judge was Jane Allman who was k...

Kooikerhondje – week 10Updated : 03/03/2017

LIKE MYSELF I expect you are getting your dogs’ ready for Crufts, and of course we all hope to do well. There is a good entry with some exciting youngsters coming into the breed, some being imports and others bred in the UK. Our judge is Alan Bailey, who, I understand has been seriously ill so I hope the great honour o...

Kooikerhondjes - week 7Updated : 07/02/2017

BOSTON was the first ch show of the season after the Christmas break. The entry was good especially with some new young stock coming out, which is helping the breed to get well established.      Our judge was Tim Ball and he found his BOB in Sara Williams’ Daniella vom Thyroberg to Gladsheim. BOS w...

Kooikerhondje - week 51Updated : 15/12/2016

DURING the past year it was reassuring to see some new stock bred in the UK and recently imported from the Continent. It will be interesting to watch these careers progress. Our numbers are growing so the breed is getting well established.      Our show in June, as well as being very ably organised by ...

Kooikerhondje - week 41Updated : 04/10/2016

THIS YEAR I had hoped to get to more shows; instead, life seems to have got in the way of my plans. About a month ago I went into hospital for a shoulder replacement. The whole thing has gone so well with no pain at all; I just keep being told off for using the offending arm too much! At last recovery is almost over so I am ...

Kooikerhondjes - week 34Updated : 17/08/2016

AUGUST Bank Holiday is fast approaching and as in previous years the National Trust at Boarstall, near Buckingham, is having an open day where the Kooikers have a special invitation to attend. This is open to all Kooiker owners, and of course the dogs. It is a good chance to see Kooikers in their working environment and lear...

Kooikerhondje - week 33Updated : 12/08/2016

IT’S BEEN good to get out again to the shows on a fairly regular basis. At East of England it was difficult finding our benches, once that was done there was plenty to see with many dog activities to both watch and take part, added to which there were lots of lovely stalls to spend money on. We did get a freeby treat f...

Kooikerhondjes - week 21Updated : 20/05/2016

CLAIRE Johnson had a very good day at the National. First of all she took her new puppy Inca (Sensation vom Tespelkoor of Valleyrise) to try for her Good Citizen bronze award. Inca made such a good job of that, Claire was asked if they would like to try for the silver award and indeed Inca passed that as well. A lovely start...

Kooiherhondje - week 15Updated : 06/04/2016

FIRST of all, I have the sad news of the death of Margaret MacFarlane. Margaret had been ill for some time, but still managed to get out and about until recently. Although her main interest was in Lancashire Heelers she was often seen around our ring, and indeed judged us from time to time, taking a real interest in our bree...

Kooikerhondje - week 3Updated : 13/01/2016

FIRST of all, a very happy new year to everyone. For those who have been having a difficult time recently I hope things will soon improve.      Many thanks to Anne Mar-Gerrison and Claire Johnson sending me the Kooiker results from Coventry ladies open show. Claire had a wonderful start to the show car...

Kooikerhondjes - week 50Updated : 07/12/2015

FIRST of all, my sincere apologies to Peter and Julia Swinburn for my error in my last notes. The credit should have gone to their young bitch Cirtaps Prinses Bynton Ida Rose (Imp) who was RBB under Petula Humphrey at Midland Counties, and not as stated in my last notes. The breed had a presence at Discover Dogs in London...

Kooikherhondje - week 46Updated : 09/11/2015

AT LAST our household is returning to normal, although, during this time we have lost one member of it in the shape of Polly, Crunchcroft Finesse. She was 12 years of age and died from a suspected tumour on her spinal cord, she is really missed, especially her excellent ability to clean pans! Katie (Crunchcroft Nightingale i...

Kooikerhondjes - week 27Updated : 24/06/2015

WE RECENTLY held our annual club show at Steventon Village Hall in Oxfordshire. We were lucky with the weather and were all able to sit outside with our dogs enjoying the sunshine. Our judge was Jinty Gill-Davies, our club patron. All the classes were well supported, with the dogs looking and moving at their best on the gras...

Kooikerhondje - week 51Updated : 09/12/2014

OUR LONG anticipated visit to the Netherlands Kooiker Club Championship Show was a great success. This time we decided we would take this trip in a more leisurely manner than in the past so that we could fit in some sightseeing as well. This time we travelled on the train as Katie was travelling in the car on a har...

Kooikerhondjes - week 37Updated : 05/09/2014

IT HAS BEEN an eventful time for both me and the club lately. In my case my recovery from a second hip replacement at last seems to be progressing satisfactorily and I’m looking forward to getting back in the show ring.      The club has recently held a judges seminar which was well atten...
