Tibetan Spaniels - week 12Updated : 15/03/2017

CRUFTS and all that goes with it is over for another year so now most, if not everyone, will be busily competing to qualify for Crufts 2018.      Mike Gilchrist was our judge this time with an entry of 186 dogs with just 15 absentees. BOB for the second Crufts running was Penny Smith’s homebred Ch ...

Tibetan Spaniels - week 11Updated : 08/03/2017

FIRST of all an apology for a ‘slip twixt cup and lip’ in that BOB and then BPIS at the Utility Breeds Association of Wales was Clydum Here Comes Edna, all this at her first show at just six months and three days old! Unfortunately, this great triumph was spoilt, albeit entirely unintentionally, by her name being...

Tibetan Spaniels - week 9Updated : 22/02/2017

Tibetan Spaniels - week 8Updated : 14/02/2017

I GATHER that the TSA’s AGM proved to be both calm and successful with their officers being voted to remain in place. This was followed by their usual excellent lunch, which was much praised to the point of being described by a member, whose first AGM this was, as being ‘quite a spread’!    ...

Tibetan Spaniels - week 7Updated : 09/02/2017

FIRST of all, heartfelt thanks to Bridget Croucher for all her hard work and dedication in running our breed rescue. What we would we do without her?

Tibetan Spaniels - week 5Updated : 25/01/2017

FIRST of all, a grovelling apology to Steve Dean to whom I referred to as the past secretary of the Kennel Club in the DW, Jan 20 notes when, of course and as both I and everyone else knows he is their past chairman!      How this ridiculous error occurred I can only imagine was, although the intention w...

Tibetan Spaniels - week 3Updated : 11/01/2017

SOME SAD news comes via the past secretary of the Kennel Club, Steve Dean, and thence from Jean Lanning of Madelene Aspinwall’s death over the Christmas period. Although better known for her Farmway Border Terriers, she also had a few dearly loved Tibetan Spaniels when I first met this charming lady back in the ‘...

Tibetan Spaniels - week 2Updated : 05/01/2017

IT WAS a bit of a surprise to see that Tibetan Spaniels had changed themselves into Tibetan Mastiffs in the Dec 30 paper as I had been certain that our notes had been sent off in good time. However, when starting to read about Tibetan Mastiffs the words looked all too familiar... and indeed they were! A case of to err is onl...

Tibetan Spaniels - week 1Updated : 28/12/2016

NOW THAT the festivities are over and we are into the new year with news thin on the ground, it is time to review our Kennel Club approved judges, which have been officially announced in the Journal.      First of all this year, with those judging the breed for the first time with CCs starred: Manchest...

FIRST of all, a very happy Christmas and wonderful new year to you and, of course, all your dogs!      Just a reminder to make sure that chairs are firmly pushed in under tables after festive feasts as Tibetan Spaniels, even those who have never bothered to elevate before, are adept at climbing onto ta...

Tibetan Spaniels - week 50Updated : 07/12/2016

THERE was an entry of 72 at a very chilly BUBA for Tina Bodell (Tinamba), who was awarding CCs in the breed for the first time.
