Tibetan Terriers - week 22Updated : 24/05/2017

AT THE World Congress, the first talk after coffees was by John Wauben who gave an interesting review of judging. John is president of the FCI Show Judges Commission and an international judge from the Netherlands.      For this write-up of the day, I am grateful to Philippa Gilbert and Julie Hindle whos...

Tibetan Terriers - week 21Updated : 18/05/2017

THE TIBETAN Terrier world congress 2017 was organised for May 12/13/14 at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire. On the Friday there was a welcome reception at Farmer’s Fayre between 6.30pm and 9pm, where people gathered for a buffet and a drink, wearing name tags so that you got to know each other. It was especially beneficia...

Tibetan Terriers - week 20Updated : 12/05/2017

AT THE National, we were again on the Sunday, giving us such a good traffic-free ride in the early hours. The weather was superb for showing and for once we weren’t reaching for warm jackets each time the sun went in.      Our judge was Des Manton from Ireland and he had drawn an entry of 127 from ...

Tibetan Terriers - week 19Updated : 05/05/2017

THERE are always predictions and guesswork as to what the outcome of a show might be but as regards Neil Smith and Jagger’s great win at WELKS, this certainly could not have been the case. Our day was Sunday and in the early hours of the morning Neil was not feeling 100 per cent and was more or less deciding not to go ...

Tibetan Terriers - week 18Updated : 28/04/2017

CONGRATULATIONS to Robert Nutt for raising over £2,300 in the London Marathon for Tibetan Relief. He finished the marathon in five hours and 36 minutes, even though he had sprained his foot going over in a pothole.      The Tibetan Relief Fund provides healthcare, schooling etc for the Tibetan peop...

Tibetan Terriers - week 17Updated : 24/04/2017

IT’S GOOD to see some of the old photos featured in Dog World each week, and last week Ernest Froggatt was shown in 1987 with his choice of BIS, a Borzoi bred by Reg Bassett. Reg was one of the well known all rounders at the time and there were others that used to come to the old agricultural hall at Maidstone where th...

Tibetan Terriers - week 16Updated : 12/04/2017

THE SPRING weather seems to have brought all our bitches into season – not all at once, which might be helpful, but one after the other. As we have three pairs of brothers and sisters, we need to separate them fairly quickly to avoid incest! Then three weeks isn’t always enough, especially if the sister doesn&rsq...

Tibetan Terriers - week 15Updated : 07/04/2017

THERE is still time to put in an advert for the TTA year book which will be out at the World Congress weekend on May 12-14. In the TTBOC year book which came out at Crufts there were some really interesting articles including some notes by Pat Cross, who has become the new patron of the TTBOC.      Nowad...

Tibetan Terriers - week 14Updated : 31/03/2017

THE AGM of the TTA was held at Binley Woods Village Hall, near Coventry. The meeting went smoothly and there was a good atmosphere and support. Everyone who had an opinion was able to voice it and there was a fair exchange of ideas and views.      With regard to the results of the ballot, the winners wil...

Tibetan Terriers - week 13Updated : 24/03/2017

AT CRUFTS while judging was taking place all over the venue, the general public was invited to have a closer look at all the different breeds in the Discover Dogs section of the show. This event is dependent on volunteers to man the booths for their breed, bringing their own dogs, bathed and groomed, and in Tibetan Terriers ...

Tibetan Terriers - week 12Updated : 17/03/2017

CRUFTS – the show which is like no other. Our day was Friday so in order to avoid the working traffic I got up at 3am and left at 4am, and many others travelled through the night.      Once inside the venue its always reasonably easy to find hall 4 and our ring, but finding the same exit back after...

Tibetan Terriers - week 11Updated : 09/03/2017

IT HAS BEEN difficult over the past few years to pick up the dog press without finding the large number of articles and headlines to do with health issues in dogs. In Tibetan Terriers our main concern has been to do with the eyes. TTs were the first breed to have the eye status recorded on registrations certificates and in t...

Tibetan Terriers - week 10Updated : 03/03/2017

APOLOGIES to Portsmouth exhibitors for wrongly naming their open show results as Newark. The Newark open show took place a week later causing a little confusion but I gather there was a Facebook message and no exhibitors were absent. The judge was Dee Ford and her BOB in a good entry was Geoff Cherry’s Lynces Whatever ...

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

SHEILA Atter’s article in DW, Feb 17 on ‘The overscrupulous puppy buyer’ was interesting and I’m sure struck a chord with many of us. While we are all anxious that our puppies should go to a permanent loving home, we are not enamoured with the over efficient buyer who comes with a clipboard, a long li...

Tibetan Terriers - week 8Updated : 17/02/2017

WHEN I saw that ITV were going to do a series of three programmes on the Secret Life of Dogs  I was some somewhat sceptical as to the subject matter. However, this series is well researched and well balanced and there is little of the nonsense we have seen in previous programmes. There were even two or three Tibetan Ter...

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

MORE SUCCESS around the open shows. At Rugby Barry Blunden gave Tony and Veronica Green’s Ergonox Abella A Gift from Lost Valley to Verony, bred my Miss L Niclasen, BOB. ‘Bernice’ is only 13 months old and went on to G1 under Carolyne Scott. Their puppy V Vini Vidi Vici, owner bred, was BP and PG4.  &...

Tibetan Terriers - week 6Updated : 01/02/2017

IT’S A comparatively long break now before Crufts. Years ago I would be at an open show on every Saturday and every Sunday and if there were none, then there would be numerous ‘exemption’ shows to choose from. The latter had good judges – breed judges and some championship show judges. You took your c...

Tibetan Terriers - week 5Updated : 27/01/2017

MANCHESTER was held over four days at the Staffordshire County Showground and our day was the Friday. There was an entry of 125 TTs for our judge Fiona Whitehead. It was a cold and frosty morning with some patchy fog but traffic was good on the whole, although I believe there was an accident on one route and a few people mis...

Tibetan Terriers - week 4Updated : 18/01/2017

AT BOSTON, Mark James and Glenn Davies’ young import Barnstorm Waterley United by Dezine (Ch B Sim-Pa Caught On The Fly by D ex Ch B Becuz I’m Wicked by D), bred by Myer and Allway, won the puppy stakes where there were 92 entries from the hound/utility groups. This was certainly a fine achievement. The judge was...

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

BOSTON took place at the Peterborough showground, over four days. Our day was Saturday, so there were no problems trafficewise and it was one of my shortest journeys.      Emily Hadlow was our judge and she had drawn an entry of 145 from 108 dogs. As is becoming the norm, Tibetan Terriers had drawn mor...
