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

FIRSTLY, I hope you are all keeping your dogs cool in the very high temperatures the country is experiencing right now as I write these notes.      Exercise early mornings and late evenings, nothing too energetic, just a leisurely stroll should do. Make sure there is plenty of fresh water available and g...

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

I AM WRITING these notes from thousands of miles away in Thailand but news from the Three Counties show has filtered through to me. Of the ten dogs entered nine were present for Alan Norcross to cast his eye over. It sounds bad but he finished one off and started another on the road to their championship.    ...

Sealyham Terriers - week 24Updated : 07/06/2017

A LITTLE bit of good news from Denise and Len Bettis. They attended Southern Counties even though there weren’t any classes for our breed. Their youngster Ornella Country Living (Hudson) won NSC puppy dog and then beat the winning bitch puppy to take BPNSC, he also won reserve in a large puppy stakes with entries from ...

Sealyham Terriers - week 23Updated : 31/05/2017

BATH SHOW had good weather for our breed which was on the first day of this four day show, we don’t have CCs there until 2019. Neal Straw was our judge and he drew an entry of seven dogs who were all there.      BOB and BP was Denise and Len Bettis’ youngster Ornella Country Living (Hudson). ...

Sealyham Terriers - week 22Updated : 24/05/2017

AT THE SKC the eight Sealyhams entered were all there for judge Shirley Watson to run the rule over, two males and six bitches entered. This entry appears to be the average for this show over the years, gone are the days when there were 20 or more, nowadays you need to have the time and money to travel up there from the sout...

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

WE ARE midway through May now and with five sets of CCs gone we are more than a third through our allocation of 13 sets. Our allocation isn’t spread out very evenly with just one set in January, one set in March, two sets in April, two sets in May, one set in June and July, one set in August, one set in September, two ...

Sealyham Terriers - week 20Updated : 10/05/2017

OUR DAY at the National was the first day, Thursday, held at the Stafford showground. Hopefully in future years all the championship shows will have to alternate their days and maybe we will get a better entry!      Just ten Sealyhams for Jack Watson to judge, and at least they all turned up. I think it&...

Sealyham Terriers - week 19Updated : 03/05/2017

A FEW BITS of news from abroad: Davide and Lisa Sacco from Italy won the CACIB and BOB at a recent show under Liz Cartledge with their Saore Naughty Princess.      At the Baltic Terrier show in Kropelin Michael Weser won the CAC and BOB with Dudwell Call Me Crisby Cuddles both days over the weekend, on d...

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

OUR FIRST breed championship show of the year is always the one of the STC, held at the Memorial Hall at Rangeworthy, which is a nice venue, easy to find and plenty of parking available. Arriving early there was plenty of room to set up and nice to find the hall already prepared for the show.      The en...

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

I WAS SADDENED to hear that Jack and Shirley Watson’s son Tim died suddenly on April 10, I am sure you will join me in sending our sincere condolences to them and their family.      Birmingham’s entry is very disappointing, especially when we have a well respected specialist judging. I unders...

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

NOT MUCH news filtering through this past week. Janet Wonnacott took her girl Jacott Jubilee Queen to Pontypool open show and took BNSC and G1, good to keep the breed in the spotlight.      I was recently at another terrier breed show and during a discussion about a number of things there was a unanimous...

Sealyham Terriers - week 15Updated : 05/04/2017

WELL, THE journey to National Terrier was pretty good for most of the exhibitors with periodic showers, but after an initial shower around 9am the weather remained dry. Parking was quick and easy. We were benched in the main hall towards the back left hand corner with plenty of room for our tables and within easy reach of th...

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

LOOKING at the entries for National Terrier again was a big disappointment, just 15 dogs making 17 entries. This show is the terrier specialty of the UK, but it’s hard to feel that the breed is showing its full depth of quality. In 2019 we have been awarded two extra sets of CCs, but at this rate the KC will be taking ...

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

CLUB SHOWS are very important for a number of reasons, they are a get together for the membership, a training ground for dogs and also for up and coming judges. So it was a big disappointment that the entry for the first club show of the year, the STBA open, that the entry was poor. It takes a lot of organising for the clubs...

Sealyham Terriers - week 12Updated : 15/03/2017

WELL, CRUFTS is over and done for another year! It’s always eagerly anticipated by the majority of dog show exhibitors, it’s a place to show off your dogs, also meet up with old friends from home and abroad. We were on Thursday the first day this year and were second in the ring following Bedlingtons. Luckily for...

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

A COUPLE of judges for your list from the recent Kennel Gazette: Jennifer Bledge SKC 2018 and Martin Phillips Bath 2019, the latter is the first time CCs for this show having taken the ones from Three Counties under the Kennel Club ‘shake up’!      The Danish Terrier Club held its first show ...

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

2016 REGISTRATION figures are the same as last year, this being 113. Of these a good percentage are bred by people who are not exhibitors or show a real interest and involvement in the breed. They are using the breed as a ‘money maker’ for their own benefit and show little or no interest in the overall welfare of...

Sealyham Terriers - week 8Updated : 15/02/2017

SOME SAD news reached me from Australia that Ross Brennan had died. Unfortunately his wife Eve has some aging problems and therefore was unable to tell us. The Brennans were great supporters of the breed in Australia, importing many good dogs and bitches, many from Phoebe Cuming.      They were great sup...

Sealyham Terriers - week 7Updated : 08/02/2017

SOME OF you may have heard that in the past 12 months some people registered a dog and a litter with the colour ‘white with brindle markings’. Brindle isn’t a colour in our Standard and actually brindle is not a colour, but a pattern.      When I contacted the Kennel Club registrations ...

Sealyham Terriers - week 6Updated : 03/02/2017

I WAS VERY sad to hear that Ailsa Jackson (Churclo Sealyhams) had died. For a full obituary see page 4.                         DAVID WINSLEY, davmar@tinyworld.co.uk
