Schnauzers, Miniature - week 22Updated : 26/05/2017

L PINTO Teixeira from Portugal was our judge for SKC and his choice for BOB was the bitch and with it that all important third CC. Ir Ch Bens Number One with Soletrader was bred in Argentina by Natalia Marenda and is by Arg Ch Zvago-ps Monte Gentile ex Big Bens Karis Legacy and jointly owned by Gavin and Sara Robertson and C...

Schnauzers, Miniature - week 20Updated : 10/05/2017

I REGRET to announce that I was a shade premature in telling you that Yvonne Fehilly was the new secretary of the Northern Schnauzer Club as she found it necessary to resign, after being elected by the membership at its AGM just six days earlier. Yvonne told me that she was subsequently informed that most of the committee di...

Schnauzers, Miniature - week 19Updated : 03/05/2017

WELKS was cold and windy, but at least it stayed dry for the Miniature judging, which enabled the dogs to be on grass for the first time this year. As I was busy elsewhere on the showground I was not able to watch the judging, but I think Miniatures fare better on grass, especially at this venue where mostly grey dogs, on a ...

Schnauzers, Miniature - week 17Updated : 24/04/2017

MY THANKS go to Gail Wise for sending me the results of the Schnauzer Showcase, this year judged by Tom Isherwood. It proved a clean sweep for the Miniatures with Tom Braithwaite’s Cheantake On The Rocks going best overall, Liz Longdin’s Wellingley Won Of The Girls going BP and Ch Nortonchase Kiss In The Dark for...

Schnauzers, Miniature - week 14Updated : 30/03/2017

THE SCGB held its 87th championship show at the Sports Connexion, Ryton, with CCs on offer for all varieties of our family.      Ronni Tierney was the judge for Miniatures, with Gail Wise and Kirk Moss, taking on Schnauzers and Giants respectively and I was given the honour of making the final awards thi...

Schnauzers, Miniature - week 13Updated : 22/03/2017

QUITE a bit to catch up on and I start with Crufts where Gill Ogburn was our judge. Interestingly none of the 17 champions (ten dogs and seven bitches), from various countries, featured in the top awards that were all family.      Mia Ejerstad-Conti, originally from Sweden but now partnered with Fabrizio...

Schnauzers, Miniature - week 5Updated : 25/01/2017

BOSTON is the first championship show of the year and although we are not allocated CCs there, we do have breed classes.      Tim Ball was our judge and his choice for BD and BOB was Peter and Masami’s Ch Risepark Right Charmer, a good start for last year’s top Miniature. Chase later went on ...

Schnauzers, Miniature - week 52Updated : 19/12/2016

SADLY I have to announce that Madeline Goddard has lost her 19 year battle with cancer. Maddy, who was introduced to our breed by her aunt, Jan Wells, bred under the Madebo prefix. Watching daughter, Alexa show her foundation bitch in junior handling must have given her a great deal of pleasure and perhaps even more so when ...

Schnauzers, Miniature - week 48Updated : 28/11/2016

THE NSC held its championship show at the Elsecar Heritage Centre, as has become usual, and while it is not my favourite venue, the club always make the best of what they have. They always make an effort on the inside but those of us who find pulling trolleys something of a challenge are particularly grateful for the new par...

Schnauzers, Miniature - week 45Updated : 04/11/2016

I WAS SORRY to hear of the death of Mary Moore, although aware that she had been unwell for some time. Patricia Mary Moore is her full name but ‘Patricia’ was soon dropped as she hated it and she is probably remembered for her Odivane Schnauzers (and anagram of the name of her first marital home, ‘Devonia&r...

Schnauzers, Miniature - week 43Updated : 19/10/2016

MY TRIP ‘Down Under’ resulted in me missing all of the shows after the City of Birmingham and as my information on them has come for the internet, the results may not be quite as full as usual.      The first show that I missed was Richmond where Finnish all-breeds judge Kari Jarvinen took ...

Schnauzers, Miniature - week 37Updated : 07/09/2016

THREE shows to catch up on with the most recent being the City of Birmingham, that must be the most innovative show on the circuit. Our judge was Jan Rual, a Briard specialist whose connection to the Schnauzer family is through the Giants.      Jan found her BCC and BOB in Jan Boyle’s Acacia Pass...

Schnauzers, Miniature - week 33Updated : 10/08/2016

DAVID Webb was the judge for the SCGB summer show and organiser, Gail Wise, kindly sent the results. Looking at the time of the message, it must have been sent pretty much at the close of judging.      David’s choice for BB and BOB was June Caffel and Hollie Kavanagh’s Doberway Lucy Locket,...

Bearded Collies - week 33Updated : 10/08/2016

MIDSHIRES BCC’s ch show was held in brilliant sunshine and was another highly successful show for the club. Tony Burscough judged the dogs and Gill Burfitt the bitches and both judges had the pleasure of making up two new champions.      DCC and BIS went to the now Ch Malandex Most Xciting (Ch M...

Schnauzers, Miniature - week 31Updated : 27/07/2016

LEEDS certainly does us proud with our ring location with their new layout – no more trudging to the far end of the showground, only to have to come back halfway to our ring.      Glenys Allen, a long time specialist, who is one of only two people invited to judge our Miniature club show on two o...

Schnauzers, Miniature - week 29Updated : 18/07/2016

PETER Newman writes: “The frequency of judging in relation to the number of others who are also able to award CCs is often mentioned with a suggestion that statistics indicate that exhibitors prefer a fresh face.      “There is, however, an important reason for having a regularity of judges...

Schnauzers, Miniature - week 27Updated : 29/06/2016

FRANCES Krall took centre stage at Blackpool and her choice for the DCC and BOB was Peter and Masami’s Ch Risepark Right Charmer. Still in ‘junior’, this was chase’s seventh CC and sixth BOB. He didn’t catch the eye of Jane Lilley in the group but pleased Ronnie Irvine for fourth in the new juni...

Schnauzers, Miniature - week 26Updated : 22/06/2016

AT BORDER Union Liz Longdin had an entry of 34 and with eight absentees, had just 11 dogs and 17 bitches to choose from. Interestingly, 11 of those present were in the puppy and junior classes.      BCC and BOB was Emily Shaw’s Ch Arkangarth Lapis Lazuli for Siracem, who in the process won her fi...

Schnauzers, Miniature - week 25Updated : 17/06/2016

THREE Counties was our latest show and with showers forecast, we were judged inside by Frank Kane. Frank has seemingly changed his approach to judging as in the past he seemed to have a consistent approach to examining conformation and movement, whilst this time must have confused exhibitors by asking them to move in differe...

Schnauzers, Miniature - week 24Updated : 10/06/2016

I HAVE a few shows to catch up on, the first being SKC and while Tony McDermott took centre stage there, I was officiating in Madrid. Part of my assignment was the Miniatures where all four colours are judged as separate breeds. Whites were the last breed to be judged and I was asked to wait until the Queen Mother arrived as...
