Dogues de Bordeaux - week 19Updated : 03/05/2017

AFTER all the excitement of the Emerald Isle last week its back to good old British champ shows and one of my favourites is WELKS.

Dogues de Bordeaux - week 15Updated : 04/04/2017

AFTER all the fun of Crufts where do we do we go from here?      Firstly I have to note an amendment from my breed notes on Crufts. Firstly I forgot to mention the Cerisier Kenzo is jointly owned by Alison Darley and that it was Ernst who handled him not Marion.      Well a huge well...

Dogues de Bordeaux - week 12Updated : 17/03/2017

WELL, WHAT a weekend it’s been. The Welfares Birthday Ball on the Saturday. Then after two hours sleep it was up again for Dogue day at Crufts. But it was all well worth it.

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

WELL, THIS week I have seen comments on Facebook in regard to the ‘points of concern’ that judges have raised with the Kennel Club on our breed.

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. The leaves look like a multi-coloured rainbow, full of yellows, oranges and browns and you start to feel all warm and cosy when you get indoors from a walk with the Dogues. ...

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
