Norwich Terriers - week 26Updated : 21/06/2017

WHAT a disappointing entry it was for Christine Hitchen at Border Union, which does not have CCs for the breed. Only four Norwich entered and one of those was absent. Pauline Lawrance and Jordan-Nicole Armstrong won BB and BOB with Elantiz Mockingjay and won BD with Butterscotch Schnapps at Elantiz.     ...

Norwich Terriers - week 25Updated : 14/06/2017

I KNOW that everyone who uses social media is aware of the terrible experience Alison Hayes has had recently but a few people have said to me that they are not sure exactly what happened. I do not like putting things in this column without the events being explained by the person involved as so often ‘Chinese whispers&...

Norwich Terriers - week 24Updated : 08/06/2017

RUTH CORKHILL, Fiona Macartney and I have started work on the next NTC handbook which will cover the years 2015/16/17.  I have been asked to find out if anyone in the breed uses the whelping table which is included in every handbook. It has been suggested that if no one uses it then we leave it out of the next edition. ...

Norwich Terriers - week 23Updated : 01/06/2017

MY APOLOGIES for no notes last week. Somehow time just overtook me and I did not have time to send any in.       It was interesting to read the front page of Dog World dated May 19 where the headline says ‘Breed clubs to support open show classes’. Maybe I am being negative but I really ...

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

LUCKILY the Breed Records Supplement came in time for inclusion in the notes this week as I did not have anything else to write about.      There were only 18 puppies registered for the period Jan to March 2017, which is seven less than the same period last year. Two of these litters, comprising one litt...

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

I HAVE sent out the updated judges list to all championship show secretaries and as many open show societies as I know schedule the breed. If any of my readers go to open shows, especially those in the north of the country, and want to check to see if I have sent a list to the shows they go to get in touch with me and I will...

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

I AM AWARE that no one in the breed knew him but just to let you know that my dad died a couple of weeks ago.       I have been talking to Jill Stevenson who has told me that it was a long wait at WELKS before the breed went into the ring. The weather was a bit uncertain, as it can be in the Malvern...

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

JILL STEVENSON has been in touch to tell me that she and several other members of the club had attended Pat Barrell’s funeral. As well as Jill, Ruth Corkhill, Sue McCourt, Mary McLaughlin and Eileen Needham went. Pat had requested that the service be quite a simple one and her wishes were respected. Pat will be missed ...

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...
