NICOLA and Martin Calvert have lost their Sh Ch Calvdale Softly Softly at the grand age of 14 years. He had a great show career from the minute he stepped out in the puppy classes in 2003.

Spaniels, English Springer - week 18Updated : 27/04/2017

NOT A HUGE amount to report this week as the run of breed club ch shows has been and gone and we all had a bit of a breather before WELKS.

THE SUN shone on the ESSC ch show and everyone, including the dogs, was thrilled to be outside all day with no need for a jacket – unbelievable weather for this time of the year.

Spaniels, English Springer - week 12Updated : 17/03/2017

CRUFTS is the focus of the week of course and John Palmer (Roandew) drew a very good entry of 167 dogs, the weather was kind for the walk into hall 2 (just as well as I had left my coat on the kitchen table!), the ring well organised, all the exhibits and exhibitors looked very smart and the SESSS stand was busy selling ESS ...
