Parson Russell Terriers - week 17Updated : 24/04/2017

THE PRTC club and exhibitors for the spring open show were truly blessed with the most beautiful weather enabling judging to take place outside for the first time at this venue, Norton Parish Hall.

HAPPY new year all and apologies for the lack of notes over Christmas although it would have consisted of my ramblings with the lack the shows and news! We have been without broadband for weeks, a brief respite and then off it went again. It isn’t until you are without it that you realise how much you depend on it and ...

Parson Russell Terriers - week 51Updated : 15/12/2016

IT’S ACTUALLY been a while since we have attended LKA having missed the last three years for one reason or another! It’s always one of those special shows as it obviously has a festive feel and well done to the committee for negotiating with the NEC group for a reduced parking rate. I’m sure we’d all ...

From three PR...

Parson Russell Terriers - week 41Updated : 07/10/2016

IT HAS started to feel distinctively autumnal. I swear the terriers can feel it in the air and know it’s approaching the time of year that they enjoy the most. What I’m referring to of course is earthwork and it’s amazing how they feel the cold, stood at the side of show ring but it miraculously disappears ...
