Bouvier des Flandres - week 16Updated : 12/04/2017

BEFORE the open show the BdFC of GB held its AGM. Apologies were received from Kari Wilberg and Pete Vigus, amongst others with whom we would have loved to catch up, but it was nice to see ‘old hands’ such as Tony Crowther attending and to welcome Bill and Sigrid Mullen back to the fold.     ...

A REALLY big thank you is owed to Pam Wadsworth who has diligently written these notes for 14 years, her many sentences recording the breed’s history and exploits for a span of time equivalent in other spheres to a different kind of sentence! For a diminutive woman she has left big shoes to fill and I hope I can do the...

Bouviers des Flandres - week 12Updated : 16/03/2017

WOW! SUNDAY at Crufts! But it wasn’t too bad and it does help that BdF have the ring in the far corner at the end of Hall 4 which gives us plenty of room for grooming tables and ‘groupies’ not to mention the very convenient coffee bar and loos.      Weather was dry and fine which is alw...

Bouvier des Flandres - week 11Updated : 08/03/2017

SHIRLEY Hockenhull had a milestone birthday so BdF ‘Hendrix’ she handles for Di and Dave Jones treated her to a weekend (after an adventurous train journey) away in Manchester to see the musical Bat Out Of Hell.

Bouvier des Flandres - week 10Updated : 02/03/2017

STUART Band was kind enough to give me this update on the US Westminster show, which is positive proof that there are actually people out there who read these notes: “The move of daytime judging from The Garden to The Piers coincided with the raising of the entry limit ceiling. This enabled the re-introduction of &lsqu...

Bouvier des Flandres - week 5Updated : 30/01/2017

MANCHESTER ch show, there again at the moment without CCs (the next CCs for our breed is Crufts), but wait until 2019 when they become one of the ‘all breed’ CC shows.      Haley Jones was judging with a fantastic entry for a show without CCs, in fact a better entry than seven of the shows we...

VERY SORRY to have to tell you of the sad death on Jan 10 of Janet Hughes (Alsadie BdF) who although involved with Afghans and Giant Schnauzers to start with, was a successful, dedicated Bouvier owner and breeder.

Bouviers des Flandres - week 1Updated : 29/12/2016

MIRANDA Lucas stated in the book she wrote in 1991: “That I have always been against the breed being awarded CCs, because I feel it is not always beneficial, as people want champions at any cost and many have no thought for the welfare of the breed. It encourages breeders who are seeking financial gain and having watch...

FIONA Lambert tells me she, Marj Eastham and Michael Craig went to Amsterdam for the Holland Cup – otherwise known by the locals as the ‘Bucket Cup’ but not having seen the cup I do not know if this is true!

AT LKA specialist Cheryl Pierpoint gave a second DCC and BOB to Erik Zwoferink and Van Rooyen’s Dutch/Ger Ch Kingsley from the Dogsfarm (Strike Forces from the Dogsfarm ex Blackngold Darcy), who still had a forbidding expression in spite of the lack of eyebrows which he had rubbed away, and also didn’t stop him w...
