Bedlington Terriers - week 22Updated : 25/05/2017

THE BREED has its first champion of this year in the shape of Honeymist Blue Bols, owned and bred by Shirley Davies and handled by Lorraine Martin. He picked up his third and crowning CC, along with BOB, at SKC under Chris Pick (Veranna). This was his second CC on the trot, having won at Birmingham National under Roger Crook...

Bedlington Terriers - week 21Updated : 18/05/2017

THE MIDLAND BTC will shortly be holding a meeting to update their judging lists. If anyone out there would like to be considered for the lists, or needs to upgrade, get in touch with secretary Yvonne Bannister. The club is also in the process of adding email addresses to the lists, so if you would like yours to be included, ...

Bedlington Terriers - week 20Updated : 11/05/2017

MUCH AS I’ve enjoyed the last couple of championship shows, for all sorts of reasons, it’s been a bit of a disappointment to have to show inside rather dingy stock sheds and halls, when the weather on both occasions has been nice enough to show outside. I do understand the space issues at the National, and breeds...

Bedlington Terriers - week 19Updated : 04/05/2017

YVONNE Greenland (Winfell) returned to the centre of the ring at WELKS to assess a good entry. Once again Paula Bishop’s young girl, Plumeria’s Sea Breeze, delighted her owner by taking BCC, her first, and BOS. However, I don’t imagine it took the shine off the day for Paula to be pipped for BOB by Peter Ki...

Bedlington Terriers - week 18Updated : 27/04/2017

THE MAY issue of the KC Journal confirms a few more judges for the next couple of years: Eileen Needham will be doing Midland Counties next year, and Zena Thorn-Andrews will be our judge at the National in 2019.      We also now have confirmation that Roger Bannister (Miteymidgets) has been accepted onto...

Bedlington Terriers - week 17Updated : 20/04/2017

LINDA Gent (Fraxinella) returned to the centre of the ring after an absence, to judge at the BTA open show. Not a big entry, and depleted by a 30 per cent absentee rate, but I do know that several bitches were in season, which accounted for some of them.      Roger and Yvonne Bannister’s young lad ...

Bedlington Terriers - week 16Updated : 13/04/2017

THE SEMINAR run by the Midland BTC last weekend was a lovely day, for me at least, as speaker and one of the mentor team. There were lots of students, including some already judging at different levels, some potential new judges and some just interested in learning more about our lovely breed. The mentor team of myself, Marg...

Bedlington Terriers - week 15Updated : 06/04/2017

SHIRLEY Davies and the Honeymist team have had to wait a while to collect a first BOB at National Terrier, but they did it in grand style last weekend, when Ch Honeymist Posh Dreamz, handled as ever by Lorraine, won BCC and BOB under breed specialist Craig Richardson (Highdene) and went on to a wonderful G4. Well worth the w...

Bedlington Terriers - week 14Updated : 30/03/2017

THE NATIONAL BTC open show proved to be a day to remember for Craig and Christine Richardson, whose young littermates took the top honours under breed judge Donna Walters. Highdene Hartley was BD and BIS with sister Highdene Harmony taking BB and RBIS. The Pocklingtons’ new baby Timberose Rhapsody in Blue was BPIS and ...

Bedlington Terriers - week 13Updated : 23/03/2017

THERE was a great turn-out of Bedlingtons, their people and other doggy friends, for Billy’s Bedlington Walk at Attlee Park, in Bedlington. From the photos on the Bedlington Terrier North East Facebook page, the route through the woods along the riverbank was beautiful, and it seems the weather was good, too. The team ...

Bedlington Terriers - week 12Updated : 16/03/2017

ONCE AGAIN Crufts was exhausting, expensive (did we all really need another pair of scissors or acres of dog bedding?) and exciting. Am I the only one who’s only just getting over it and still feeling quite shattered? It was busier than I’ve seen it before on a Thursday. It was lovely to meet up with friends from...

Bedlington Terriers - week 11Updated : 08/03/2017

I’M WRITING these notes just before we set off for the NEC, and there’s not a great deal to report, with everyone getting ready for Crufts, but one bit of news did arrive the other day.      It seems that Barbara Anderson-Illingsworth (Birkonbrae) has withdrawn from judging at Blackpool 2018 ...

Bedlington Terriers - week 10Updated : 02/03/2017

BY ALL accounts, the Midland BTC’s first open show of 2017 proved to be a great success. With the club now under new management to a degree, with Yvonne Bannister (Miteymidgets) formally elected as secretary, there were some innovative changes to the usual format of the day, held at a new venue for the club, with a sho...

Bedlington Terriers - week 9Updated : 27/02/2017

THE BEDLINGTON people in the north east are a busy (and very sociable) lot. No sooner has the dust settled on one event then they’re getting the next one under way. They’ll be holding another Bedlington day at Bedlington Cricket Club on June 4, with a morning walk at 11am, followed by fun showing, lure racing, an...

Bedlington Terriers - week 8Updated : 16/02/2017

THERE is to be another Bedlington Lure Coursing day at Herrington Country Park in Sunderland, on April 23. It all kicks off at 1pm. You can find the details on the Bedlington Terrier North East Facebook page.      You may have noticed on the news recently that a load of holdalls, filled with illegal drug...

Bedlington Terriers - week 7Updated : 09/02/2017

OUR JUDGING start time at Crufts has been put back an hour, to 10am, so it might not be quite such an early wake-up for some. David Taylor (Uptnorth) has 78 exhibits to assess (27 dogs and 51 bitches), with a total entry of 81, which is slightly lower than last year’s entry but pretty much on a par with the entries ove...

Bedlington Terriers - week 6Updated : 02/02/2017

THE FEBRUARY edition of the KC Journal has given us the official confirmation of Mr Juslin’s appointment at Southern Counties in June, and it also confirms that Mark Ord has been approved for inclusion on the A2 judging lists. There is also a list of judges who have passed the JDP programme: Ann Bradley, Lesley Crawley...

Bedlington Terriers - week 5Updated : 26/01/2017

I THINK everyone must have been snuggled up in the warmth last week, as no news materialised, so no breed notes, sorry.      The weather on the first day of Manchester did its best to depress everyone, with miserable drizzle and bitter cold, and the car parking areas on the grass were very soggy. A numbe...

Bedlington Terriers - week 3Updated : 13/01/2017

AS I WAS about to begin these notes, a call came from Alice Emsley, with the sad news that Doreen Harker, of the Phindol Bedlingtons, had died on Jan 10. Doreen, and her late husband Dennis, had been stalwarts of the National BTC committee during the 1980s and ‘90s, since their first introduction to the breed in the 19...

Bedlington Terriers - week 2Updated : 05/01/2017

I MENTIONED a couple of weeks ago that no details of the BTA’s forthcoming show and AGM were available, but that has now been addressed, to a certain extent. Its bulletin arrived early this week, and there is a brief mention in there, to confirm the date and venue of the show, but it doesn’t say that the AGM is b...
