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...

Bedlington Terriers - week 1Updated : 29/12/2016

IT’S NICE to be able to start 2017 on a very heartening note. I’m sure you remember Mila, the Bedlington who was badly beaten whilst protecting her home from burglars last year, and the fund that was set up to help pay her enormous vets’ bills. Well, once Mila was on the road to recovery, the fund was kept ...

Bedlington Terriers - week 52Updated : 19/12/2016

THE KENNEL Club has just published its revised Stud Book bands, which indicate where dogs can win a Stud Book number, and, presumably due to our falling entries, Bedlingtons have been moved from band B down to band A. This means that only the winner of the open class will now qualify for a Stud Book number, rather than first...

Bedlington Terriers - week 51Updated : 14/12/2016

AN EARLY judging start at LKA meant that Joan and I had to hit the road at 4.30am but it also meant that most people could get off home at a reasonable hour too. Apart from, that is, the Miteymidgets team, as I had awarded BCC and BOB to Yvonne and Roger Bannister’s Ch M Look Of Love, from a good entry. DCC went to Hef...

Bedlington Terriers - week 50Updated : 08/12/2016

I KNOW ‘tis the season to be jolly, but ‘tis also the season to be aware of all the dangerous stuff which can cause great harm to our dogs (and to our purses) if we’re not careful. A cautionary tale came from a friend last week, who had bought a lovely Christmas wreath, complete with all the usual greenery,...

Bedlington Terriers - week 49Updated : 02/12/2016

SHIRLEY Davies has rung with the sad news that Lilian Crumpton has died in hospital on Nov 30, following a fall at her home. Newer exhibitors may not have known Lilian, who along with her late husband Joe, showed and made up homebred Tolivar Rigton Regina back in 1990. Those of us who did know her will remember how much she ...

Bedlington Terriers - week 48Updated : 24/11/2016

STUART and Angela Yearley and the lovely Ch Gnejnabay Genegenie Gal at Lowbrook have once again been invited to compete in the Kennel Club’s Good Citizen supermatch finals at the KC Building at Stoneleigh on Dec 4. Genie made it through to the quarter-final stage last year, so fingers crossed that she goes further this...

Bedlington Terriers - week 47Updated : 18/11/2016

AS MOST Bedlington owners will be aware, Dr Susan Haywood has been at the forefront of the research into the second gene believed to be responsible for some cases of copper toxicosis. Dr Haywood will, for the time being, be continuing this work privately, as she no longer has the use of the facilities offered by Liverpool Un...

Bedlington Terriers - week 46Updated : 10/11/2016

WITH JUST one championship show to go this year, perhaps it’s time for a brief recap on next year’s judges, so you can all start planning where to spend your hard-earned cash. Judges confirmed so far are: Crufts David Taylor (Uptnorth); National Terrier Craig Richardson (Highdene); WELKS Yvonne Greenland (Winfell...

Bedlington Terriers - week 45Updated : 04/11/2016

A DELIGHTED John and Lesley McNally collected their third and qualifying CC with homebred youngster Conekesheved Kaldo Girl at Midland Counties, under Stuart Plane, in a quality entry, but were pipped for BOB by Peter Kiernan’s Ch Sharnor High I’m Viktor at Kierlander, who now has the top dog title firmly in his ...

Bedlington Terriers - week 44Updated : 28/10/2016

FRANCES Fuller and Kaye Scott did a great job at Discover Dogs promoting our lovely breed, and celebrating 40 years of helping unfortunate little dogs, with the stand for Bedlington Terrier Rescue. There was a posse of helpers over the two days, both two and four-legged, including Chris and Sarah Harris, who had masterminded...

Bedlington Terriers - week 43Updated : 20/10/2016

WE SAW the final breed club championship show of 2016 with Ernie Hill (Tynecourt) officiating at the BTA. Peter Kiernan and Viktor collected another CC and BIS, from a good entry, but his pleasure was outshone by John and Lesley McNally’s delight at a second CC for their young bitch Conekesheved Kaldo Girl, who was BOS...

Bedlington Terriers - week 42Updated : 13/10/2016

MY APOLOGIES for the recent shortage of breed notes. My ailing computer finally pegged out, and although I managed to set up the new one reasonably well (technophobe that I am) I couldn’t sort out the email stuff. However, thanks to sterling work by a couple of young men at our local technology emporium, I’m now ...

Bedlington Terriers - week 41Updated : 07/10/2016

I’M AFRAID I got my wires crossed with regards to the Midland BTC show recently. I thought Yvonne Bannister had taken charge of all the proceedings as acting secretary, but, in fact, she didn’t officially take over until after the show. It was former secretary Dorothy Owen who masterminded this particular event. ...
