Irish Terriers - week 12Updated : 17/03/2017

THIS YEAR terrier day at Crufts took place on the first day Thursday. This meant that there were fewer visitors to the benching and around the ringside and the halls were generally quieter.

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

SADLY I was unable to make it to Midland Counties on terrier day as once again, being held on a week day, work commitments got in the way. Fortunately, however I was able to attend on the Saturday and was delighted to see that the tradition of decorating the rings for Halloween had been maintained with pumpkin lanterns adorn...

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

OCTOBER is a quiet month for Irish Terriers at championship shows.      Although we have classes at South Wales, sadly these are generally very poorly supported.

Irish Terriers - week 40Updated : 29/09/2016

UNFORTUNATELY, terrier day at Darlington always falls on a Friday which for those of us who work, can be a particularly difficult day to take time off.

Irish Terriers - week 36Updated : 01/09/2016

WKC TOOK place amid the beautiful surroundings of the Royal Welsh Showground at Bulith Wells. I really do think the show committee should give some thought to changing the dates of this show since in all 17 years or so that I have been attending there I think we have been judged outside on no more than five occasions. Even w...
