Chow Chows - week 25Updated : 22/06/2017

ON WHAT proved to be an incredibly hot weekend there were two shows Chowists could choose from. In the north it was Border Union at Kelso, with the breed being shown in the AVNSC classes. Barbara Carr must have been delighted to top the entry winning BNSC with Ch Maixing Eastern Princess to Guanezhou and Vikkie Ellis notched...

Chow Chows - week 25Updated : 14/06/2017

THREE Counties on a Thursday drew a very nice entry of 25 for Anne Cummins to run the rule over. It makes for a nice appointment if the entries make nicely filled classes. We were fourth in the ring, so it meant a nice civilised start for exhibitors, not the early morning rush.      Anne’s choice f...

Chow Chows - week 24Updated : 08/06/2017

THANKFULLY Southern Counties dawned clear and bright, even though there was a stiff breeze, at least we had a dry show. There was an entry of 40 for Thomas Oakley to judge from which he chose the Southgate’s Santicana Smokin Joe as his DCC winner, and Rendell Riff Raff at Kwaitang winning RDCC for Arlene Robinson. &nb...

Chow Chows - week 23Updated : 01/06/2017

BATH WAS on bank holiday Monday once again. I don’t think I have been anywhere else but this show on the May BH for over 40 years; it will seem really strange when it starts to rotate the groups, which is going to have to happen from 2019 when the show becomes an ‘all breed’.      There...

Chow Chows - week 22Updated : 25/05/2017

SUE EVANS travelled up to SKC by train, both to save her very sore foot and to minimise the tiredness one experiences when driving that long trip from the south. Arlene Robinson’s run of success with her boys continued with Ch Rendell Ruff N Tuff at Kwaitang winning DCC, and Rendell Riff Raff at Kwaitang RCC and BP. ...

Chow Chows - week 21Updated : 18/05/2017

I HAVE been advised that there are to be donations in memory of Iris Bowker for the Manorlands Hospice. I am presuming this is in Keithley but I am sure if they were sent to her address her son would receive them.      The latest issue of the Breed Records Supplement has 125 puppies registered from 30 li...

Chow Chows - week 20Updated : 11/05/2017

I START the column this week with the very sad news that Iris Bowker died on May 9. She had been at home until a few days before when her medications were such that she had to be in a place where the dosages could be regulated. Our condolences are extended to her son David and her daughter-in-law Sue who have been most suppo...

Chow Chows - week 19Updated : 05/05/2017

THE SCOTTISH CCC and the Ecosse Chow Chow walkers who participate in walks in the Rouken Glen Park in Glasgow raised money to help Valerie Potter’s dogs last weekend. Club member Sophia DeMarco invited walkers into her home near to the park to have coffee etc and raised £220. The club has donated £50 but I ...

Chow Chows - week 18Updated : 27/04/2017

AT THE Breed Council AGM all the existing officers were re-elected to their positions, Claire Merrion as secretary, Thomas Oakley as chairman, David Robbins as vice-chairman and Andrea Douse as treasurer and the cup steward for the COTYS, now that a decision has been made to cut down the quantity of trophies offered at this ...

Chow Chows - week 17Updated : 19/04/2017

AS THERE were no breed shows on the Easter weekend I am sure it turned into a ‘gardening’ one for many. My dog paddock has been cut three times now and the dogs are loving the sunshine and a nice lawn-like area to loll about in; half of them are spending more time there than in their runs as it has been so dry as...

Chow Chows - week 16Updated : 13/04/2017

AT THE West of England and Welsh open shows held back-to-back in Taunton the entries were very similar with approximately 20 Chows present at each show. Vickie Ellis was judge for the former and selected Arlene Robinson’s Rendell Riff Raff at Kwaitang as BD and BIS, he is still a puppy so he was automatically BP too. B...

Chow Chows - week 15Updated : 06/04/2017

AT THE BUBA open show Derek Bishop had an entry of ten but half of these were missing which was a shame. Nevertheless his choice for BOB and BP had a really wonderful day. Arlene Robinson’s Rendell Riff Raff at Kwaitang was RBIS under Sue Dykes and then was BPIS. It is quite a while since a Chow did really well at the ...

Chow Chows - week 14Updated : 31/03/2017

AT THE National CCC Linda Clelland had come down from Scotland to run the rule over the entry of 34 plus seven baby puppies. As far as I can tell only seven were absent so that was good for the judges numbers. BIS went to the Godber’s Kwaitang Kole Porter at Lechan with Jenny Sweeney’s Chowetha Colour Me Red in R...

Chow Chows - week 13Updated : 23/03/2017

THE CHINESE Chow Club held it’s AGM as a stand alone event at the Hall in Middleton Stoney where the championship show was held in February. It was good of them to provide a light lunch for those that attended and drinks were available both before and after. While we are generally used to these meetings following open ...

Chow Chows - week 12Updated : 16/03/2017

WAS IT me or was there just a bit more space at Crufts this year, it seemed it was relatively easy to get a seat at the ringside and walking through the halls, both on Friday and Sunday, it was a bit easier with no real bottlenecks, which we have certainly seen in the past. Unfortunately I was unable to watch our breed right...

Chow Chows - week 11Updated : 08/03/2017

FROM THE point of view of the driver our journey to COTYS was dreadful with heavy rain and so much spray it was quite a strain to keep focused on where the white lines were. Unfortunately we took the rain north with us and by the time the bitches were being judged it was torrential, this continued for most of the journey hom...

Chow Chows - week 10Updated : 03/03/2017

ELIZABETH Campbell, known as Liz to everyone, was over from Ireland to judge at the CCC’s first show of the year. Although the entry was not a big one the absentee rate was just under a third, which was so much better than at the two most recent shows. The reasons for not attending or for not bringing the exhibits are ...

Chow Chows - week 9Updated : 27/02/2017

THERE are four new Stud Book qualifiers listed and 16 challenge certificates approved plus four new champions. These are: Bojinhai Fire And Ice, Lechan I’m Adele, Maixing Moonwalker at Kweichow and Taylorian Starlight. There are three new JW holders: Hiswin Star Dreams, Miketilla Rocket Man and Dragonsway Tom Thumb who...

Chow Chows - week 8Updated : 20/02/2017

THE PHOTOGRAPH of Maxine Abbott with her Chow was the extent of the image shown during the TV programme I mentioned. There were a series of dogs and owners to indicate different types of dogs and this was where she was featured. No mention or sight of Chows in the second episode so we may not get featured again.   ...

Chow Chows - week 7Updated : 09/02/2017

THE CHINESE CC championship show was held at Middleton Cheney once again despite assurances at its AGM that this big event would not be there again. While I acknowledge it was a bit tight it was not uncomfortably so but if all the exhibits had arrived, with the addition of baby puppies, it would have been impossible to move ...
