FURTHER success for the Axlehurn kennel, where, at East Anglian Gundog Society Alan and Denise Costley’s Waterford’s Purple Rain at A, handled by Georgia Brown, was BOB, under Evan Ryan and went on to RBIS, handled by Liz Brown, under Anthony Allen.

Spaniels, Irish Water - week 14Updated : 31/03/2017

MY PLAN was to arrive the night before the IWSA AGM at a hotel nearby, and have a nice, relaxing evening before the meeting. However, this was not to be. The M6 was blocked most of the day due to bridge repairs, so all thoughts of having a restful night went out the window, as I didn’t arrive ‘til about 11.30pm. ...

Spaniels, Irish Water - week 13Updated : 24/03/2017

WE SPENT four very full days at Crufts, (I think I’m still recovering!), and I would like to acknowledge the great work the Discover Dogs volunteers do. There is no doubt that the footfall around the breed booths is a large percentage of the visitors who come through the turnstiles. All those who manned the booths...

Spaniels, Irish Water - week 10Updated : 03/03/2017

BY THE time you read this Crufts will be upon us. I have always loved this show. Ever since I was a little girl and it was held at Olympia in London and then Earl’s Court, I have loved everything about it. I know it’s not the most exhibitor-friendly show, but it continues to be the shop window to a wide audience,...

I HOPE you have all been clicking away with your camera over the holidays, preparing photographs of your dog to be included in the IWSA yearbook.

Spaniels, Irish Water - week 52Updated : 19/12/2016

I AM GRATEFUL to Sandra Rawlinson for correcting me. Sandra and David’s Pharises Moulin Rouge was the DCACIB winner under Mr F Rodriguez on day one of the IKC international show, not as previously stated on the website.      News is thin on the ground at the moment, so don’t be shy. I would...
