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

GOING back to the club open show following the notes last week there are many thank yous to make. Firstly, thanks to our hardworking and very able stewards, Gail Simpson and Linda Cooper, neither of whom have a Norwich, but are in Norfolks. Without help from other breeds I do sometimes wonder how we on the Norwich committee ...

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

I START these notes with the details of the funeral of Pat Barrell. Although the funeral will take place before the published date of this paper I am aware some people get copies before this and also online. If anyone would like to attend, the funeral will take place on Wednesday April 19 at Stafford Crematorium, Tixall Road...

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

THERE was a very good entry of Norwich at National Terrier for judge Bryan Claydon. 31 entered with only one dog and three bitches absent, definitely much better than some of the shows last year when we struggled to get into double figures. I did not go to the show but can see from the results on the Higham Press website tha...

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

I HAVE received the very sad news that Pat Barrell (Barwest) died on March 27. The sister at the nursing home where Pat was living phoned Mary McLaughlin early on the 28th to let her know and Mary then phoned several people to pass on the news. Unfortunately this news was not received in time for me to change my notes of las...

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

MARY McLAUGHLIN has been in touch to let me know that Pat Barrell has now moved into a nursing home in Huntington, Cannock. I am sure that Pat would welcome letters, cards and phone calls from her many friends in the world of dogs. Please get in touch with either myself or Mary for Pat’s full contact details. Remember ...

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

BARRY Day judged the breed at Crufts and drew a very respectable entry of 20 dogs with two absent and 32 bitches with six absent. Sadly Kate Tate was unable to get to the show as she was unwell but I am sure she cheered up no end by winning a 12th CC, with BOB, with Ch Jaeva Maid Of Honour, handled in the ring by her breeder...

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

THERE is some good news regarding Pat Barrell. She is feeling a lot better and is hoping to be able to leave hospital quite soon. Mary McLaughlin has been in to see her and she has told me Pat was concerned about some Norwich Terrier Club matters as she is on the committee and was asking what happened at our last meeting. Th...

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

I THINK we may have solved the problem of dogs bearing the Ragus kennel name entering the club open show under Matthew Oddie. The regulations allow anyone with a dog with the Ragus kennel name that is bred by Lesley Crawley to be able to show under Matthew. Matthew only has an interest in this kennel name and is able to regi...

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

MY BREED notes in DW, Feb 17 were asking questions about Ragus Norwich being able to enter the club open show under Matthew Oddie, who has an interest in the Ragus kennel name. I have had further email correspondence with the Kennel Club regarding this and gave them a couple of examples of Ragus-bred Nowich. One of them was ...

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

I START these notes with the news that Pat Barrell is very ill in hospital. Mary McLaughlin took a card to the recent committee meeting which we all signed and was then going to be delivered by her personally when she went to visit. All four of Pat’s dogs have been rehomed. Two have gone to Wendy Kirkpatrick on the Isl...

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

THE NTC open show to be held on April 8 is, unfortunately, causing a bit of confusion. The judge for the show is Matthew Oddie who has two kennel names, Riowood and Ragus. I have been contacted by a couple of exhibitors to ask if they can show their Ragus Norwich under Matthew if they have been bred and registered solely by ...

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

I HAVE had an email from Ruth Corkhill to say that Discover Dogs at Crufts is now fully covered but if you would like to offer your services then it would be appreciated as a slot may become available. It makes life so much easier if volunteers come forward rather than having to get in touch with people who you think might b...

Norwich Terriers - week 5Updated : 26/01/2017

THIS IS a reminder to ask all judges on the NTC judging list to let me have details of any engagements they have coming up, especially open shows and championship shows without CCs.      The NTC will publish details of shows on its website and in the newsletter. The club will also sponsor the rosettes &n...

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

THE LATEST edition of the Kennel Club Journal shows that Norwich Terriers remain in stud book Band A. This means that first in the open class at shows with CCs, or the winner of a CC, RCC or JW, qualify for a Stud Book number.      Johan Juslin has sent me the latest edition of the Norfolk and Norwich Te...

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

THERE is some good news regarding Pat Wilson. She is now at home after a stay of several weeks in hospital and is coping with the help of carers. I am sure Pat would welcome cards from her many friends in the breed. At the moment it looks doubtful if she will be able to have a dog back to live with her, but at least she stil...

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

THIS IS a reminder to show societies scheduling classes for Norwich Terriers and judges of those classes that if they use a judge from the Norwich Terrier club judging list, and they let me know, then the Norwich Terrier Club will sponsor the rosettes for the show and will also put an advertisement for the show in our newsle...

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

I WOULD like to wish my readers a happy new year.      Please try to send me something for inclusion in these notes this year.      Some Norwich exhibitors made their way to the Colchester open show just before Christmas where there was a very nice atmosphere. This society always...

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

LKA SAW two of the top winners for 2016 coming out on top again. Cathy Thompson-Morgan’s Ch Belleville Just For Effect, who is the top winning Norwich for 2016, won his eighth CC, together with BOB. Kate Tate won an 11th CC with Ch Jaeva Maid Of Honour who ends the year as the top winning Norwich bitch on the club poin...

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

I HOPE that we will shortly be producing the winter newsletter. Included with the newsletter is a membership renewal form.      You will see from the notice of the AGM that we are short on the committee by five members. We really could do with at least a couple more members if not the five that are ne...

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

I REPORTED in my notes in September that I had been in touch with Jane Valentine, the secretary of LKA, to ask for Norfolk and Norwich Terriers not to be judged at the same time in different rings at that show. I think that most exhibitors will be very grateful that the breeds this year are to be judged in the same ring with...
