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

Sealyham Terriers - week 5Updated : 25/01/2017

THE JOURNEY for many to Manchester was cold, icy and in some cases slow due to Thursday’s traffic problems; luckily we were second in the ring after Staffordshire bitches.      The hall the ring is in is the farthest from the main entrance, dark, dingy and very noisy, not the best place to take a p...

Sealyham Terriers - week 3Updated : 11/01/2017

BY THE time you read this Manchester show is likely to be over as it’s held on a Thursday; this will be our first set of CCs for 2017. The judge is Norina Evans, better known for her Welsh and Ceskys and this will be her first time awarding CCs in our breed.      The entry is very disappointing w...

Sealyham Terriers - week 52Updated : 20/12/2016

HERE IS my review of 2016.      Top Sealyham Terrier went to Joy Banks’ Ch Amberwheat’s Hope’N’Smile, bred in Germany by Marilyn Manns-Schmidt, made all the sweeter as ‘Ava’ is Joy’s first Sealyham. Top Puppy goes to Denise and Len’s Dudwell Eadlyn Exclu...

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

LKA IS our last show of the year and our last set of CCs. Margaret Evans had drawn an entry of 16 dogs, of these two were absent and just four males entered. As the breed was first in the ring there was plenty of time for exhibitors to do their shopping and be on their way home.      BCC, her second, a...

Sealyham Terriers - week 50Updated : 07/12/2016

THE LATEST Kennel Gazette has more judges for your list: 2018 Nat Terrier Mr P Martin, this gentleman isn’t on our judges list, he lives in Northern Ireland and is passed for CCs by our Kennel Club in Staffords. I’m assuming he has been passed because of his FCI qualifications, checking their site gives no inform...

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

THE LATEST figures are out for registrations for the third quarter of the year. There were six litters registered with a total of 30 puppies. Half these were bred by people known in the breed, the others from none exhibitors. There were six importations registered, two from the Czech-Republic litter sisters from a little kno...

Sealyham Terriers - week 48Updated : 24/11/2016

JANET Wonnacott had a lovely day at the Amman Valley with her Jacott Jubilee Queen. She won G1 from the NSC classes. But not being content with that she then went on and took BIS.      Up in Norway there was a very large international show at Lillestrom, Fredrik Ahs and Olga Forlicz took their Ch Forlg...

Sealyham Terriers - week 46Updated : 09/11/2016

WELL THERE is no news from anyone in the UK, but abroad there have been a number of shows featuring Sealyhams. In Denmark at Herning at the international shows there they were awarding the Nordic titles. On the first day BOB went to Ch Sealytoppen’s Diego Jr, who also took the CACIB, and his kennelmate Ch S Cirkeline w...

Sealyham Terriers - week 45Updated : 02/11/2016

JOURNEYING up to the Midland STC’s championship show on a chilly autumn morning looking at the wonderful colours ranging from various greens, yellows, goldens and reds, I realised that it was the autumn of our Sealyham show season. This was the 12th set of CCs with just the one set remaining at the LKA in December. ...
