Norfolk Terriers - week 21Updated : 17/05/2017

THE LATEST Breed Records Supplement has been received and this shows a significant drop in registrations compared to the same period last year, Jan to March. In 2016 there were 126 and this year there are 86 – a drop of 40. Is this a good or bad thing and I suppose it depends on where you look at it from? It shows that...

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

THE BREED was judged at the National by Paul Wilkinson who awarded a second CC, with BOB, to Denise Horne’s Marchdens Mark My Words. This follows hot on the heels of his first at WELKS a couple of weeks ago. Let’s hope his third is not too long in coming.       RDCC was Mary Atkinson&rsq...

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

FOLLOWING my notes last week where I mentioned I had to get away from the NTCGB show as soon as possible because my father had had a stroke and was in hospital. He passed away a few days after the show, on April 26.      The Midland Counties NTA championship show celebrates 25 years since the formation o...

Norfolk Terriers - week 18Updated : 26/04/2017

I HAVE had an email from an obviously delighted Sue Walshe to let me know she has had a very good win with her seven-month puppy Beritas The Names Bond at Manchester Sporting Terrier Club open show. Brody won the junior class in the breed, was BP and then went on to win BPIS. Roger Cruden judged the breed and John Scanlon BP...

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

 I RECENTLY went to an open show with classes for Norfolks. As well as me, Sheryl Meldram and Anne Bowes had entered so we had a lovely day out on a day which had a cold wind, but warm sunshine.      Norfolks were first in the ring at 9.30am, so it meant an early start for me. What a good job I arri...

Norfolk Terriers - week 16Updated : 12/04/2017

I ONLY reported on the winners at National Terrier last week as I had the results on the day of the show before the BIS and stakes classes had been judged. I then completely forgot to check if any Norfolks had won anything further. I was therefore very pleased to see, when I opened DOG WORLD the following week, to see a pict...

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

BRYAN Claydon (Brymarden) judged the breed at National Terrier. Bryan had an entry of 17 dogs (three absent) and 34 bitches (also three absent). Both of the top winners in dogs were a repeat of their Crufts wins.      Diane Jenkins won an eighth CC with Ch Kinsridge Back Chat, but this time with BOB. Den...

Norfolk Terriers - week 14Updated : 29/03/2017

AN EXTRAORDINARY thing happened at a general open show recently. An exhibitor came out of the ring and said that when she put her dog on the table the judge asked if it was of a certain breeding. Before this happening I have never before heard of a judge asking the breeding of a dog before judging it.    &nbs...

Norfolk Terriers - week 13Updated : 22/03/2017

MY CONFUSION with entries at Crufts has been resolved by Fiona Macartney. Thank you Fiona for getting in touch. It seems that one exhibitor entered one dog online, which was in the catalogue, but posted entries for four other dogs which were not received by the Kennel Club. As the exhibitor concerned had a ‘proof of po...

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

WHAT A busy day it was at Crufts for many people. There never seems to be enough time to talk to the people you want to as everyone seems to be rushing around. Maybe it is the amount of people between the benches and the ring, plus all the spectators at the ringside. I was busy handing out handbooks and voting papers to all ...

Norfolk Terriers - week 11Updated : 07/03/2017

THE BREED Records Supplement for October to December 2016 shows there were 171 puppies registered from 55 litters. There were six litters of one puppy, ten of two, 15 of three, 17 of four, five of five and one of six. 14 of the litters registered did not have a kennel name, which I think is quite high. Six litters were born ...

Norfolk Terriers - week 10Updated : 01/03/2017

I HAVE been informed there are a couple of errors on the MCNTA schedule. The show is taking place at Shenstone Village Hall, Shenstone, WS14 0LT and entries are to go to Cathy Thompson-Morgan, but unfortunately the entry form in the schedule says the show is at West Bridgeford Village Hall, Gt. Bridgeford and entries are to ...

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 5Updated : 26/01/2017

MORE FROM the NTC points tables compiled by Cherry Howard. At the top on the breeders table is Diane Jenkins’ Kinsridge kennel with 299 points won by eight dogs; second is Ruth Gee’s Watercrofts with 292 points won by 16 dogs; third is Jackie Phillips’ Blakens with 198 points won by three dogs; and fourth i...

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...
