Fox Terriers, Wire - week 9Updated : 21/02/2017

ACROSS the pond in America saw their annual two-day Westminster Kennel Club Show held in New York. The logistics of holding a dog show in NY is mind blowing in itself, but from past experience actually working a show day and handling is just unreal from start to finish.      It used to be held completely...

Fox Terriers, Wire - week 8Updated : 14/02/2017

THE CRUFTS entries are out and as expected a healthy entry for this now truly international show.      Philip Greenway (Rayfos) has 85 dogs entered making 87 entries. As many know I’m not a great fan of Crufts as an exhibitor on purely logistics issues, but as a spectator I love being ringside and ...

Fox Terriers, Wire - week 6Updated : 01/02/2017

DESPITE the freezing fog, and cars needing a tug off the grass parking areas when they arrived and started parking at Manchester, it didn’t seem to dampen people’s spirits. For many it was the first chance to catch up since last year.      BCC, BOB and G2 went to Travella Set Fair for Kebulak...

Fox Terriers, Wire - week 4Updated : 18/01/2017

I DID WONDER how Manchester kept its Wire CCs in the review of shows and allocation of CCs, especially with the planned increase in representative shows and redistribution of CCs.      For some time the show has had some of the poorest entries of the year and considering it’s the first one you woul...

Fox Terriers, Wire - week 3Updated : 11/01/2017

WELL, ANOTHER year is upon us with the first championship show of the year with no CCs for us, but classes judged by Joe Ashe at Boston. There were no male entries from what I understand.      BB and BOB was Nethertonion Sweet Chariot Of Beckstone and RBB was Proveits Pretty Woman and BP Eskwyre Extrem...

Fox Terriers, Wire - week 41Updated : 07/10/2016

There hasn’t been a lot of shows with CC’s since WKC end of August but wires have still managed to feature in top results. At City of Birmingham Warren Bradley handled Mr Malzoni’s Am Ch Hampton Courts Machida to G2 under Roger Crooks following the win out of AVNSC. This route was repeated at Richmond under...

Fox Terriers, Wire - week 35Updated : 24/08/2016

WELL A little retrospect on some results first of all, it’s been a busy time all round for Wire folk this year. Reports indicate Blackpool show was uneventful for once and everyone managed to survive the show without wellingtons or wind breakers. Judged by Martin Phillips an entry of 17 with two absent, DCC and BOB was...

Fox Terriers, Wire - week 26Updated : 21/06/2016

APPARENTLY British summer time is here, but I’m not sure where the summer is. It stayed fine for Bath and Margaret Hughes had an entry of 25 with four absent. BCC and BOB was Ch/Ir Ch Blackdale Julie and DCC was Scot VD Schonenbergen.      RDCC was Nethertonion Optimist and RBCC was Snowbell VD S...

Fox Terriers, Wire - week 23Updated : 08/06/2016

THE NATIONAL had an entry of 33 for Mr H van den Berg and he awarded BCC and BOB to Ir Ch/Ch Blackdale Julie. Julie also went on to be awarded G3. It’s always good to see the quality of the breed within groups. DCC, his first, was The Big Bopper of Wragley, Sara Arnold must be thrilled she’s supported the breed a...

IT’S THAT time of year for breed club open shows, the FTC of Scotland held its show on April 10, many thanks to them forwarding a marked catalogue. Keith Barrett judged Smooths and Wires.      BB, BOB and BIS was Corriecote Summer Solstice, owned by Dianne Heathcote, and BD was Harry Lime, owned...

Fox Terriers, Wire - week 17Updated : 21/04/2016

IT NOW feels the show season is underway now National Terrier has happened. Edward Allen judged an entry of 48 finding his BOB in DCC winner Ch Kingarthur Van Foliny Home. King went on to take BIS, this is his second BIS at National Terrier not sure if this has been achieved before in subsequent years, one for the historians...

Fox Terriers, Wire - week 13Updated : 29/03/2016

THE ANTI-CLIMAX of Crufts is now here, always so much build up and it always comes and goes like any other show, except it takes a week to recover! How wonderful to see a beautiful sassy West Highland White Terrier go BIS – what a lovely representation from the terrier group looking absolutely in top condition and trim...

Fox Terriers, Wire - week 11Updated : 08/03/2016

CRUFTS is here! Judge Jenny Thornton (Glendraterra) has 72 dogs making 81 entries, ring 7 hall 1 at 9am. I’m really looking forward to watching the Wire ring as I missed Crufts completely last year and its one of the last great forums to few a number of our breed in one place. I’m sure there will be a highly comp...

Fox Terriers, Wire - week 1Updated : 04/01/2016

WFT NOTES were recommenced two months ago – it has only in the past few days come to my attention that they actually haven’t been getting to DW for publication but are all sitting in my outbox.      The issue has now been addressed. A reminder for all members of the Wire Fox Terrier Associa...

Fox Terriers, Wire - week 39Updated : 17/09/2015

Zena Thorn Andrews writes: “My apologies to the second in the terrier group at City of Birmingham for the terrible hand writing that turned Mr Shembri and Mr Calleja's Wire Fox Terrier Malta Ch Mastini di Rihana goes to Casino write up from ‘Absolutely spot on in front, and pretty HANDY behind’ to ...

Fox Terriers, Wire - week 22Updated : 20/05/2015

THANK you to everyone for their well wishes and cards it is good to be back in reality again, sadly breed notes were absent following my head injury, so a little catching up to do.      Crufts didn’t happen at all for me this year but the reports were it was a very active ring inside for exhibito...

Fox Terriers, Wire - week 7Updated : 04/02/2015

THERE was a change of judge for Manchester. Iím sure many will wish Dave Scawthorn well after his surgery and a positive recovery. Taking over was Sue Wiggins (Cradleydale) an entry of 26 with eight absent.      DCC and BOB was Razor Sharp at Paperman (Ch Nethertonion Buddy Holly at...

Fox Terriers, Wire - week 2Updated : 31/12/2014

HOPE EVERYONE had a good Christmas and is looking forward to 2015. 2014 was a monumental year for our beloved breed, not only home in the UK but also overseas. One can hope that 2015 will again keep our breed in the limelight; for a numerically small breed we keep ourselves recognised and that can only be p...
