Norfolk Terriers - week 9Updated : 22/02/2017

CRUFTS is now less than a week away and I hope everyone, win or lose, has a good day. I hope to have the 2015-2016 NTC handbook with me to hand out to members. It is no wonder that Crufts is such hard work as I will be handing out the handbooks, handing out schedules for the Norfolk Terrier Club open show, taking subscriptio...

Norfolk Terriers - week 8Updated : 17/02/2017

MY APOLOGIES for the lateness of reporting this but most especially to Bev Ackling. Bev lost her beloved Ruby Reuben (Huck) on Jan 9 after a very short and sudden illness. Huck was born on Aug 19, 2010 and was by Jaeva Gorden Bennet ex J Bee-Good. Bev bought him locally from a pet home and wanted him to look like the picture...

Norfolk Terriers - week 7Updated : 10/02/2017

FOR ONLY the second time in all my years of showing dogs my entries for an open show had not been received. I went to the Isle of Ely show expecting to show my Norfolk puppy and Alison Hayes, who has Norwich Terriers, did a double take as she did not expect to see me as my name was not in the catalogue. I went to the secreta...

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

THIS IS a reminder about the breed awareness day which is being held on Saturday Feb 18 at Weedon Village Hall, Weedon. There will be a session on canine first aid in the morning, followed by a puppy party. After lunch there will be a grooming demonstration given by Diane Jenkins, which will be followed by a practical sessio...

Norfolk Terriers - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

I HAVE received the January copy of the Kennel Club Journal and this shows that Norfolk Terriers have been moved from stud book Band B to stud book Band A. This means that for Norfolks first in the open class, at shows with CCs, will be awarded a stud book number. Also, a CC, RCC or JW also qualify for a stud book number. I ...

Norfolk Terriers - week 3Updated : 10/01/2017

THE NTC of GB is holding a breed awareness day at Weedon Village Hall on Saturday Feb 18. The cost for members is £5 per person and £10 non-members with children free.      The day starts with 9.30am registration and coffee. The main topic in the morning will be canine first aid, followed b...

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

I WONDER how many people appreciate the time and effort that Lynn Ward and Mary Brewster go to to provide all exhibitors at the Christmas show with presents. I received one of these, which was not opened until Dec 25. Included in the parcel were two chocolate coins, a selection box, a bag containing some turkey and cranberry...

Norfolk Terriers - week 1Updated : 28/12/2016

APOLOGIES for no notes last week – the deadline crept up a bit too quickly. I would like to wish my readers a happy new year and please remember to keep at least one of your resolutions and send me items for inclusion in these notes.      There is just time to remind you that Fiona Macartney need...

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

RUTH GEE has let me know that she did very well at the Otley open show recently with two of her Norfolks. The breed judge was Jill Peak who made Watercroft Saffron BOB and W Suzie’q BP. Saffron then went on to get G4 and Suzzie’q PG1 under David Shields. Suzie’q then won BPIS under Jill Peak. This is a love...

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

I WAS very sorry to hear that Linda Cooper’s mum has died. As you will know she lived with Linda and Terry but had recently had a spell in hospital, although she was allowed home to be looked after there. I am sure we all send our sympathy to Linda and Terry.      Hopefully by the time you read t...

Norfolk Terriers - week 49Updated : 01/12/2016

THE NTCoGB held its Christmas show at Bugbrooke Sports and Community Centre. As is usual at this event there was a relaxed and Christmassy atmosphere. Judge for the show was Jennie Griffiths (Karamynd) whose main breed is Westies but says that she also always has a Norfolk around the house.       ...

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

ONCE AGAIN I have to give my apologies to Mary Atkinson as I got the name of the RBCC winner at the MCNTA show wrong. I have no excuse as I was at the show, had a catalogue and it is correctly marked. RBCC was Mary’s Moortop Clear Choice (Ch Blakens Pay Back ex M Again No Choice). BEVERLEY WATKINS, 01708 473897, bev...

Norfolk Terriers - week 47Updated : 16/11/2016

THERE is no show news this week and no one has given me any other snippets of information.      On Sunday it is the NTC of GB Christmas show at Bugbrooke where the judge is Jennie Griffiths (Karamynd). Unfortunately, Andre Hess is unable to be there, but has passed several important items to me to brin...

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

THE MIDLAND Counties Norfolk Terrier Association championship show took place a couple of weeks ago with Cathy Thompson-Morgan at the helm as secretary after taking over this position from Diane Jenkins. I find Weedon Village Hall a very warm and welcoming venue with plenty of good car parking, an excellent kitchen, a hall t...

Norfolk Terriers - week 45Updated : 03/11/2016

EDWARD Allen judged the breed at Midland Counties and drew an entry of 13 dogs, four absent, and 26 bitches with five absent. It was a very good day for Ruth Gee as she made up Watercroft Chilli Pepper after winning nine RCCs, and a couple of BD awards at shows without CCs, along the way. Chilli Pepper won his first CC at Th...

Norfolk Terriers - week 44Updated : 27/10/2016

ONCE AGAIN Juliet Knight made the long journey down from Liverpool to the ExCel Centre in London to set up the Discover Dogs stand for the Norfolk Terriers. As well as all the display material, Juliet also brings a Norfolk Terrier with her. The stand was set up on the Friday ready for the people manning the stand on Saturday...

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

CONGRATULATIONS to Diane Jenkins and her Ch Kinsridge Top Tip (Martha) who won her 28th CC, together with BOB. This win makes Martha the new breed CC record holder. The previous record holder was Ch Cracknor Call My Bluff, bred and owned by the late Elisabeth Matell.      Martha is by K Top Gun ex K Ho...

Norfolk Terriers - week 41Updated : 06/10/2016

ANOTHER apology I’m afraid, this time to Ruth Gee. In my notes a couple of weeks ago I said that Watercroft Pick Of The Pops won her first CC at Darlington. Ruth has pointed out to me that this was her second CC as she won her first at Windsor under Julie Moyes. I know exactly why I made this mistake, a reason I will n...
