Dogues de Bordeaux - week 6Updated : 01/02/2017

SO, THIS week is all about Banzai Betty Boop, top Dogue de Bordeaux puppy 2016. Top puppies don’t get a mention very often so I thought it would be nice to hear from her owner what this little superstar is all about. I am sure as you read through you will realise he is a very proud daddy indeed.    &nbs...

Dogues de Bordeaux - week 1Updated : 29/12/2016

WELL THE new year is upon us and along with all the good intentions and resolutions we make let’s try and keep to one.      “If it’s not right for the Dogue, then it’s not right.”      Showing and breeding is not the reason to own a Dogue or buy a pu...

Dogues de Bordeaux - week 48Updated : 22/11/2016

Dogues de Bordeaux - week 45Updated : 03/11/2016

WELL MY favourite thing about autumn is the beautiful colours. Makes where we live look like beautiful, water colour painting full of browns, yellows and reds.

Dogues de Bordeaux - week 42Updated : 12/10/2016

WELL THE chill has definitely set in and it is evident that summer has left the building and autumn is here.      I love autumn.

Dogues de Bordeaux - week 40Updated : 29/09/2016

FIRST I would like to apologise for the lack of breed notes over the last few weeks. This is due to the fact that I have totally relocated to a new area started a new job and rescue has been as busy as ever. Hopefully we are back on track and you are all gear up for the fun and frivolity of my breed notes.   &nb...

Dogues de Bordeaux - week 33Updated : 11/08/2016

THIS week I am allowing the Dogue De Bordeaux Welfare to highjack the breed notes, so hold tight people it’s going to get bumpy!      The Welfare has been running since May 2007 and since then over 1,000 Dogues have been rehomed and many more owners and their Dogues helped and assisted. As with e...

Dogues de Bordeaux - week 31Updated : 28/07/2016

THIS WEEK I thought it would be nice to hear from one of the longest standing kennels in the UK, so I asked Alison Darley from Cymrygold kennels to write her views on the breed and her opinions.      Alison writes: “Back in June 2011, I put together a few thoughts which I shared here, under the h...

Dogues de Bordeaux - week 27Updated : 04/07/2016

WELL WE are out of Europe, Cameron has resigned, and we’ve been kicked out of Euro 2016. After hearing all the moaning and groaning on the news, the papers and Facebook I decided to turn the TV off, put some music on and enjoy some snuggle time with my Dogues.      Then it hit me – like an ...

Dogues de Bordeaux - week 26Updated : 24/06/2016

Dogues de Bordeaux - week 25Updated : 17/06/2016

WHY A DDB? Why a Dogue that slobbers, moults and loves mud? Who’s expensive to feed, that has many health issues, costs a fortune at the vets and a dog who when you take for a walk everyone moves in the other direction and protects their children and dogs from the big scary ginger beast heading their way?  &nbs...

Dogues de Bordeaux - week 24Updated : 09/06/2016

I HAD A lovely message the other day from Sam at Narddun who asked me to mention a friend of hers wins. She said they wouldn’t ask and that it would be nice for them to get a mention. Of course how couldn’t I say yes? Especially as I am scared of Andy from Narddun and his Neos. After a little chat I thought what ...
