Beaucerons - week 25Updated : 13/06/2017

IT ALL started Wednesday evening, with Doug and Cate Thrower discussing with me their time of departure to get to the show on time, all agreed the plans were made and the Hairy Hooligans prepared and primped for the show (walked and fed).      On the way home from ringcraft training a slight hiccup happe...

Beaucerons - week 23Updated : 31/05/2017

BATH STARTED fine, bright and promising for Team Beauceron with all members making their way for the estimated time of our entry of 1.30pm, ring 3, tent 1 – great! All assembled, dogs ready, a quick brush and a break we sit and wait. Time rolls by and we are kept informed of the progress of the judge Mrs S Hewart-Chamb...

Beaucerons - week 22Updated : 24/05/2017

JUST A short note to say that I have taken over from Lindy Cole for a short time while Lindy is having a break. We all wish her well and hope that she continues to keep us appraised of her progress with little Sefton, so ‘till the next time’!      First from Fiona While with Overhills Caviere...

Beauceron - week 20Updated : 12/05/2017

I WAS UNABLE to attend WELKS this year, it would have been Sefton’s first championship show, but my husband was in hospital the week before and his homecoming clashed with the show. As it was he slept but it was still important to be at home for him, and team Beauceron were trying to steal Sefton away for the show, but...

Beaucerons - week 18Updated : 26/04/2017

FIRST news up for this week is from Kathy Williams, with her highly successful winning duo Dido and Rubi. Kathy attended Best Paw Forward rally obedience and she came home with a full set of beautiful rosettes.      Dido was first in level one, and first in level three, a fourth in level four and fifth i...

Beaucerons - week 17Updated : 19/04/2017

I’M VERY grateful to our wonderful friend Cathy Bowell for not only providing me with the results of the JB and RE at Gravelines, but explaining the rules regarding showing and explanations of the classes, so huge thanks Cathy, a brilliant read, only wish I was there too, next year maybe? For Easter weekend Team Beauce...

Beauceron - week 16Updated : 12/04/2017

ARTICLE 50 has now been triggered, so where does that leave us with regards pet passports? The European Commission has said it will be one of its priorities, however if the negotiations fail, where does that leave Beauceron owners and other breeds?      Last September DEFRA said it would review the pet p...

Beauceron - week 15Updated : 05/04/2017

BCUK HAS now got all the available shows on the website curtesy of Doug Thrower who has done a fantastic job of making it very easy, even for me, to find the next show with Beauceron classes saving a great deal of time trawling through all the varying websites.      If any other shows are available that ...

Beaucerons - week 14Updated : 30/03/2017

NOT A LOT of news coming in at the moment, Kim Harrell attended Bridgewater where there were no classes for Beaucerons. In AVNSC under Mervyn Casling Eli (Chiceron Endeavour) gained a second and Grace (Pebbleena’s Millie Murphy) came into the ribbons in third place.      I’ve received a note ...

Beauceron - week 13Updated : 22/03/2017

MY APOLOGIES firstly for the delay in printing the breed notes. I sadly have been rather unwell, and I think I shrink wrapped my brain, as it wouldn’t function in any normal capacity, but I’m back, getting better and brighter as the days go on.      Crufts, well its come and it’s gone, ...

Beauceron - week 11Updated : 09/03/2017

I’D LIKE to share a French tale of folklore, sent to me from Fiona White; it explains how and why the Beauceron acquired the famous extra toes on their rear feet. Fiona only found it this week. Thank you Fiona for sending it and now I will share it with you all.      One evening in 1606, Anthelme P...

Beaucerons - week 10Updated : 03/03/2017

GAIL BURROUGHS and Kim Harrell went to Ilfracombe, no classes for us so the results are always harder to achieve when you’re in the AVNSC classes.      Gail also almost had a dog napping on hands after taking her little baby Diva for a day’s outing. Kim had to have her hands stitched into her...

Beaucerons - week 8Updated : 15/02/2017

WELL WINTER has opened her doors for us and it’s not just draughty it’s downright freezing – talk about layers, I’m looking rather like a barrel as I head off with my boys each day. Do they care how cold it is? I think not, or they are having a laugh at our expense!      Although ...

Beaucerons - week 5Updated : 25/01/2017

HURRAH, I was back out on the circuit without any hitches. Sefton and I jumped into Kim’s car after being chucked out at junction 18 on the M4, ready to go to Manchester.      Kim kindly left a bag of Haribo sweets for me on the dashboard; I tried very hard not to eat them all, which didn’t w...

Beauceron - week 3Updated : 12/01/2017

2016 WAS a marvellous year in the Beauceron family, we did French shows, charity walks, training days, seminars, Discover Dogs, and wonderful beach walks.      There have been three new litters born, and some of them will be dipping their paws into the world of conformation. Sefton being one of them, a...

Beauceron - week 52Updated : 19/12/2016

MY PLANS for a day out riding shotgun with Kim Harrell had been scuppered, and so once again I ask our roving reporter Kim to give us the news and results from Redditch limit show, with judge Chris Quantrill.      She writes: “Today was an amazing day, unfortunately my devilish partner in crime h...

Beauceron - week 51Updated : 14/12/2016

DUE TO unforeseen circumstances I wasn’t able to go to the LKA this year, but was watching intently online for the results to come in.      Due to this I called upon our roving reporter Kim Harrell to give me a report for the day, once again she provided me with a great report from the day itself...

Beauceron - week 50Updated : 07/12/2016

CHRISTMAS is fast approaching as is LKA, the last show for many before to Santa’s arrival, and Sefton pup and I are going for a meet and greet day.      It’s always a big and exciting show, many little Christmas parties will be going on, and the dogs no doubt getting their share of the spoi...

Beaucerons - week 49Updated : 30/11/2016

WELL WINTER has arrived. It’s cold enough to don the woolly hat and get the extra layers on, the fields are like swamps, and dogs are permanently mucky, and damp, bar Sefton pup – what a joy to own a short coated Beauceron that just wants a quick wipe down!      Sefton is still amazing me; ...

Beauceron - week 48Updated : 24/11/2016

THE BC UK held a successful seminar in November at the Kennel Club Building. All those who attended passed the assessment and received their award on the day. A lively session regarding all the points of the Standard took place, and five dogs were able to attend for us to write a critique up about them. All in all a very wel...
