Soft-coated Wheaten Terriers - week 17Updated : 21/04/2017

FOLLOWING on from the report from the AGM last week, Chris Tilley tells me that she will be sending out copies of the amended Code of Ethics and updated litter advertisement forms to members who are registered on the breeders directory.      As this may take a little time and people may be considering br...

Soft-coated Wheaten Terriers - week 16Updated : 13/04/2017

IT WAS a busy weekend for our breed club! On Saturday a Wheaten Walk took place with 20 Wheatens, plus a Poodle and a Schnoodle, being present, along with their families. The route was around Birches Valley, Cannock Chase, and they were blessed with a very warm, sunny day. The total distance covered was 5.1km. If anyone woul...

Soft-coated Wheaten Terriers - week 15Updated : 06/04/2017

ALTHOUGH it sounded rather worrying that there would be no passes sent out for National Terrier and that there would be no removal passes either, in the event it all went well from my point of view. I decided to go indoors first to ascertain where I needed to be, rather than take all my paraphernalia with me, but I needn&rsq...

Soft-coated Wheaten Terriers - week 14Updated : 30/03/2017

I START this week with exciting news from San Jeffries, who many of you will know as a founder member of the independent Health Group ‘Wheaten Health Initiative’. San has always been passionate about the health of our breed and as a medical secretary she always understood the importance of research, and robust re...

Soft-coated Wheaten Terriers - week 13Updated : 24/03/2017

I UNDERSTAND that the SCWT Club open show South went off well and that there was a lovely friendly atmosphere on the day. I also understand that this was a new venue, which offered much more room. Judge, Jane Lilley found her BD and BIS in Jo and Graham Dowdy’s Greentree Gold Mombo to Denzilly. RBD was Rob Cooper&rsquo...

Soft-coated Wheaten Terriers - week 10Updated : 03/03/2017

I’M STARTING this week with some news of the forthcoming events being organised by the SCWT Club of GB – this has been prompted by Denise Pascoe getting in touch to ask me to remind people about the upcoming grooming workshop.      Firstly, the club’s open show south is being held at St...

Soft-coated Wheaten Terriers - week 9Updated : 24/02/2017

FIRSTLY, an urgent reminder that the Wheaten health initiative fund raising auction on eBay ends on March 3rd, so you may still have an opportunity to bag a bargain if you act quickly. You can view the remaining items on http://bit.ly/2e6OccO and if you find something that interests you, clicking on the photograph will take ...

Soft-coated Wheaten Terriers - week 8Updated : 17/02/2017

IT IS WITH regret that I have to open my notes with the news that Eric Morrey (Tobamorrey Wheatens) died on Feb 15 at the age of 70. I recall Eric and his wife Linda showing their first Wheaten, Woodlands Winter Surprise in 1986 and, as I was also showing a young dog at the same time, Plumhollow Calico Casey of Acetrips, we ...

Soft-coated Wheaten Terriers - week 7Updated : 09/02/2017

Soft-coated Wheaten Terriers - week 6Updated : 03/02/2017

OUR NEXT big event is Crufts … I hope that everyone is ready and looking forward to this. Don’t forget that the club is looking for help to cover the bookstall, which is always sited at the corner of our ring, so you would be able to keep an eye on the judging as well as helping out. Do get involved, it can be r...

Soft-coated Wheaten Terriers - week 5Updated : 27/01/2017

WELL, THIS seems to have been “attack a Wheaten week”. I have received news of three Wheatens (one still a puppy) being attacked by other dogs, each without provocation, within days of each other. It is so very shocking, as an owner, to experience this. In a park that I take Buddy to someone walks a dog who has t...

Soft-coated Wheaten Terriers - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

LINDA Salisbury has asked me to encourage people who hold trophies to remember to prepare them for return. Please get any engravings done and then clean them in time for presentation to the new winners at the AGM. They can be returned to any committee member at a show, or returned directly to the AGM. It is so disappointing ...

Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers - week 2Updated : 06/01/2017

THIS WEEK I’m catching up on show results. Firstly, Arlene McIntyre reported that she ended 2016 on a high note at the Carluke show where Thistlebe Mr Bojangles was BOB and G3 under Mark Ord (Maradee). She then started the new year as she finished the old, when she took Thistlebe Imperial Topaz to the Kilmarnock show w...

Soft-coated Wheaten Terriers - week 1Updated : 28/12/2016

I DON’T have much to report on this week, which I take as a positive, meaning that everyone has been too busy enjoying themselves to be bothered posting information.       I have been reminded that claims for the SCWT Club competitions are required, details can be found on the club’s w...

Soft-coated Wheaten Terriers - week 52Updated : 20/12/2016

I HAVE been reviewing the table I keep each year of winners at championship shows with and without CCs. We have had six new champions this year, three dogs: Bev Howe’s Daisymaes Enforcer at Blackpool under Graham Dowdy; Helen Johnstone’s Whitevale Motorway Madness at Darlington under Jo Dowdy; and Ms E Butler&rsq...
