Eurasiers - week 17Updated : 24/04/2017

THE APRIL newsletter for the Eurasier Society UK has just been sent out by email, great reading with some interesting articles and lovely pictures. Thank you Sophia Giannattasio.      The other evening I had a lovely chat with Sophia’s mother, Marian. She had been to the champions competition with ...

Eurasiers - week 16Updated : 13/04/2017

FIRSTLY, if you have been trying to contact me by email and I haven’t been replying I’m not ignoring you, just having problems with my email folder with incoming and outgoing post not working properly. All sorted now, but I have a backlog of post and may be giving you old news, sorry.      So...

Eurasiers - week 15Updated : 05/04/2017

YOU MAY remember a couple of months ago Rex, with Sonya Powell, qualified to be a Pets as Therapy (PAT) dog. He has just had his first placement and Sonya is happy to share this event with us.      She writes: “We went to the Warren Care Home in Northam, North Devon. It has about 27 elderly residen...

ANOTHER big dog show event has just taken place over in Ireland, this of course is held under the FCI rules. Kayleigh Parkinson and her family had a fantastic time there and she shares with us the following.      “We had a great weekend away, at the St Patricks International Xania (Ir Ch Xania de E...

Eurasiers - week 12Updated : 15/03/2017

THE MAGIC of Crufts was there again this year. The breed classes looking smart with the green carpets; the Discover Dogs booths brimming with smiling faces (dogs and humans) against the bright pink carpet of Eukanuba colours. The lively Young Kennel Club ring, especially when the flyball heats started. The Good Citizens ring...

Eurasiers - week 11Updated : 07/03/2017

THE FIRST, of two this year, Eurasier breed seminars was held, hosted by the UK Eurasier Club. It sounds like a successful day was had. Stacey Watkins has provided us with some news of the day. She writes: “Before setting off to Hungary I attend the UK Eurasier Club judging seminar which was organised by Helen Gutterid...

Eurasiers - week 9Updated : 23/02/2017

AS WE REACH the end of February all dog show exhibitors must be realising that Crufts is only just round the corner, so to speak. This is for many the highlight of the dog calendar, to be able to show your dog or dogs off to the world and for some of the elite breeds this means future puppy sales and stud work. For our lovel...

Eurasiers - week 8Updated : 16/02/2017

CRUFTS details are now available, we are in hall 2, ring 11 with a total of 29 dogs making 33 entries for judge Sheila Jakeman. That was the good news, the bad news is we are again following the Toy Poodles who have an entry of 82 and with them on a late start of 10.30am we may not make it into the ring until mid-afternoon. ...

Eurasiers - week 7Updated : 07/02/2017

RATHER quiet on the news front, so nothing to share with you at the moment. However I thought I would see what you dog show exhibitors felt about the judge’s written critiques? Do you all rush to view them either in print in the paper or online, or do you feel it a waste of time and space in the weekly dog paper? &nbs...

Eurasiers - week 5Updated : 24/01/2017

JUST RECEIVED the results for Manchester – there were no Eurasier classes so the available classes to enter would have been NSC. The judge was Anne Macdonald and how sad for her to have such a small entry, however she saw enough to give Kayleigh Parkinson’s Ir Ch Xania de Eurasipomer at Kaydanmy BB and BNSC. &nb...

Eurasiers - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

NO SHOW news this week, the next championship show is Manchester which is held later in the month. I had a lovely chat with Marianne Giannattasio (Ted’s owner) last night. Those exhibitors at Midland Counties last October will remember Marianne was taken ill at the show and spent some time in the local hospital recover...

Eurasiers - week 3Updated : 13/01/2017

BOSTON was held at Peterborough, my local patch. Unfortunately I couldn’t get there but results are at hand, I understand our judge Jill Peak had a good entry. BD and BOB was Mr B and Mrs R Bickford’s Darchen Smokey Quartz. RBD was Miss S Watkins’ Albionspitz Dazzling Red. BB was Mrs T Hopkinson’s Sil...

Eurasiers - week 2Updated : 05/01/2017

I WOULD like to send you all good wishes for a happy and healthy new year. Hopefully we can all enjoy another full year with the company of our four-legged friends.      Towards the end of last year Ruth and Bryan Bickford had a fantastic day with Kodi at the Redditch limited show. The judge was Chris ...

Eurasiers - week 51Updated : 13/12/2016

THE LAST championship all breeds show was at the weekend, namely LKA and the day for Eurasiers was Saturday. This show does not have classes for Eurasiers which meant the NSC classes were filled with all utility breeds that didn’t have their own breed classes at the show, never an easy class to win. Xania de Eurasipome...

Eurasiers - week 50Updated : 07/12/2016

BUBA IS one of my favourite shows. This is a well run show with a happy atmosphere and plenty of Christmas cheer. What a lovely result for the Watkins family as Albionspitz Dazzling Red won Eurasier BOB, BP, RBPIS and then in the adult group took G4.      Dawn Ward has sent me her comments on the day, ...

Eurasiers - week 49Updated : 01/12/2016

THE CHAMPIONSHIP dog show season is drawing to a close for another year, with just BUBA and LKA in December. The Christmas atmosphere at both of the shows makes it extra special, so those of you attending enjoy and keep it fun and friendly.      There are still some open and limit shows being held in D...

Eurasiers - week 47Updated : 16/11/2016

I HAVE just received some really exciting news from Kayleigh Parkinson. She and her family have been in Ireland showing their dogs at the IKC international show.      Xania (Xania de Eurasipomer at Kaydanmy) won her sixth green star, her first CACIB, BOB and won the group on Saturday. On Sunday, she we...

Eurasiers - week 46Updated : 10/11/2016

AT THE weekend was the Discover Pets show at Birmingham and a number of Eurasier enthusiasts were manning the Eurasier booth. Dawn Ward has sent us some snippets on the day to share with us.      She writes: “Had a great day at Discover Pets, our dogs were well behaved and had lots and lots and l...

Eurasiers - week 45Updated : 02/11/2016

I HAVE just received news that Marian Giannattasio has been taken poorly and is currently in Royal Stoke Hospital at the moment. Marian was showing at the weekend at Midland Counties and won BOB with Teddy despite not feeling well. Marian, we all send our best wishes and hope it isn’t too long before you are feeling be...

Eurasiers - week 43Updated : 20/10/2016

IT NOW gets dark earlier and so the evening dog walk becomes a bit of a juggling act. We do not have street lights out here in the country and so the single walker (usually me) has to cope with holding leads and a big torch to see where we are walking, unless there is a full moon which has been the case just recently. &nb...
