Keeshonds - week 22Updated : 25/05/2017

JUDGING at SKC started at 9am with Schipperkes, followed by Shih Tzu, then Standard Poodles and last but by no means least, came Kees. Our judge, Ken Sinclair, did not stop for lunch and just took a quick snack break before he started judging Kees, so all main winners managed to get into the groups as the toy group was first...

Keeshonds - week 21Updated : 17/05/2017

DOG WORLD certainly gave us good Kees representation in the May 12 issue. The well known photo of Ch Neradmik Jupiter taking BIS at Birmingham National 30 years ago and the not so well known photo of Jean with her first champion, Ledwell Lysander! My goodness that brought back some memories.      The fir...

Keeshonds - week 20Updated : 11/05/2017

AS KEESHONDS were third in the ring at Birmingham National, it meant a nice leisurely start for exhibitors. Our judge was Mark Cocozza, who last did Keesies at Blackpool in 2015 and he had drawn an entry of 43 dogs with seven absentees. Judging started at 1pm and it was over and done with by 2.15pm, which also meant that eve...

Keeshonds - week 19Updated : 04/05/2017

WELKS is always the real start of the show season and Sunday saw Keeshonds ‘raring to go’ following an entry of 91 Samoyeds. Judging started at 1.30pm and finished at 4pm with our judge, Frank Kane, only taking a 20-minute break between the two breeds. The weather was mostly dry with sunny spells until LB when th...

Keeshonds - week 18Updated : 27/04/2017

I HAVE just finished reading Sheila Atter’s column in this week’s DOG WORLD and as usual her comments are spot on. Her latest, in which she writes about breed seminars, set me thinking (often a dangerous thing I know!) and one point that I have often thought about re breed specific seminars and that is – ar...

Keeshonds - week 17Updated : 20/04/2017

WE CERTAINLY received a ‘bumper bundle’ from the Keeshond Club this week with an excellent spiral bound A4 size book of the illustrated Standard, which had been edited by Karin Hickson and printed by the Kichigai show team. This was sent to members on the judging lists and I am sure will prove most helpful and be...

Keeshonds - week 16Updated : 12/04/2017

IT WAS a lovely sunny spring day for the Keeshond Club’s ch show, which was held yet again at the Kennel Club Building at Stoneleigh. Although instead of being in the spacious West Hall as in previous years, Keesies were next door in the cavernous East Hall. As usual, all the cages were ‘corralled’ into a s...

Keeshonds - week 15Updated : 05/04/2017

BUBA HELD its open show where there was a disappointingly low entry of just seven dogs with two absentees for judge Sarah Hattrell (Khinjan).      Roy Johnston and Krishna Austin’s Chotahkees Don’t Stop Me Now (Ch Neradmik Family Affair at Lekkerbek ex C Enchantress) was BOB. Jean Sharp Bale&...

Keeshonds - week 14Updated : 30/03/2017

IN MY NOTES of March 31 I said how disappointed many of us were with Crufts coverage on television this year. Not only were we given minimal coverage of the dogs but there were a lot of time wasting antics that took off from the prestige of Crufts and the serious side of dog showing.      One that suffer...

Keeshonds - week 13Updated : 27/03/2017

ON A BRIGHT, although windy, Sunday morning the Keeshond Club members met for their AGM.      The day began with the presentation of the annual trophies, the Crufts Trophies and the new Versatility Awards, which can be found on the club’s website.      All of the reports by the...

Keeshonds - week 13Updated : 22/03/2017

AMIKIRS Lord Of The Bubbles was at Oswestry where he won BNSC utility and went on to G2 under Pauline Bentley (Shanibar).      In January 2014, the format of Breed Watch was changed into three categories; with Keeshonds coming into category 2 for excessively long coat. Since then the Kennel Club has coll...

Keeshonds - week 12Updated : 16/03/2017

CRUFTS from the couch this year, as “the best laid plans of mice and men” submitted to the local virus! However, this proved an interesting perspective as many thousands of keen dog lovers must be in the same situation as they rush back from work and try to get ‘catch up’ TV coverage of Crufts. I must...

Keeshonds - week 12Updated : 16/03/2017

ONCE AGAIN at Crufts, it was Keesies’ turn to be second in the ring, after an entry of 60 plus Schnauzers down in hall 1. Our judge, Geraldine Clark (Kwajongen), who last judged us at BUBA in 2012, was ready and waiting for the first class which was called in just after 12.15pm and the BOB was finally awarded as the ut...

Keeshonds - week 11Updated : 08/03/2017

ANDY AND Jean Fitches returned as very happy bunnies from their latest trip over the channel, as their Samoykees Exclusive Moon (Int Ch Dolce Vita Dyck of Bloom White ex Venway Believe In Magic at S) got the ticket and BOS at a show in Groningen; this means that Laskia is now a Dutch champion.      At Wa...

Keeshonds - week 10Updated : 02/03/2017

THE KEESHOND Club held a breed seminar/assessment at Roade Village Hall; which was well attended with both breed and all round judges. It was very informative and all candidates appeared happy with the information provided which included the latest updated breed illustrated Standard, Kennel Club Breed Watch booklet and the K...

Keeshonds - week 9Updated : 27/02/2017

IT WAS with great personal sadness that I received the news of the death of Bill Purdon in the early hours of Feb 20. Please see an obituary on page 4. PAM LUCKHURST, 01386 861395, gavimir.house@gmail.com

Keeshonds - week 9Updated : 23/02/2017

ALTHOUGH there were no breed classes at Matlock open show held at Newark showground, Gill Brunt’s Zandvoort Purrsonal life (Am Ch KJ’s Its Nothing Purrsonal ex Bargeway Nearly An Angel of Z) won BNSC from the junior class and then Gill and Sam went on to win the utility group under Julie Seward (Elleonia).  ...

Keeshonds - week 8Updated : 16/02/2017

AFTER a chilly and damp (but without the forecasted snow) early start, there was a warm welcome and hot bacon butties ready to greet everyone turning up for the North of England Keeshond Club’s AGM on Saturday morning.      The club has not only had to change the date of its open show and AGM from ...

Keeshonds - week 7Updated : 10/02/2017

Thank you to Jane Saunders for sending me in the following: “It is with sadness that I received a phone call from Margaret Cabell, to tell me that her dear friend and long-time member of the club, Iris Coe died on Jan 31 after a brief illness with lung cancer. Iris was 78 and it is thought this may have been brought ab...

Keeshonds - week 6Updated : 03/02/2017

I AM MOST grateful to Melanie Harris for a full report on the Keeshond Club’s open show.      She writes: “Saturday, Jan 28 saw us converging on Roade Village Hall for the Keeshond Club open show. For most of us I think it was a rather damp drive to the show and on arrival, we had to negotiat...
