Schnauzers, Giant - week 9Updated : 27/02/2017

HAVE just received a club’s judges’ list for 2017; always impressed by the immense amount of work these entail.      The AHT ‘multi-breed’ research project on GPRA is still seeking DNA swabs of adult Giants with a current clear eye test. I’ll have about a dozen kits availabl...

Schnauzers, Giant - week 8Updated : 17/02/2017

SUE McGRANN tells me there’s a really good entry of 78 at NSC’s open show (G: nine for Colin Bawden; Standards 20 and Miniatures 49). It must be one of the best overall entries for breed club open shows in the last year, enjoying great support from the other two sizes.      The Giant Club sho...

Schnauzers, Giant - week 6Updated : 03/02/2017

GERRI Staples had a nice entry of ten with one absent at Lichfield, making Janice and Karen Fish’s Foxwood Femme Fatale for Dulejoes BOB and BP (also taking PG4). Gerri’s BP Schnauzer, Fletcher’s Fivepits The Detonator went PG1. TONY McDERMOTT, lichstone@aol.com

Schnauzers, Giant - week 5Updated : 26/01/2017

MORAY Armstrong had a good entry of 28 (less eight absent) at Manchester, hopefully setting the standard for improved entries this year.      BB and BOB went to the Cullen and Thomas’ Ch Philoma Lana Lang, who also pleased Ben Reynolds-Frost for G3.      Houchins’ Ch Phil...

Schnauzers, Giant - week 3Updated : 12/01/2017

BHC LESLEY Parker tells me that the AHT’s Genome Sequencing project has located two idiopathic epileptic Giants that meet their requirements (available MRI scan results, etc). They are still seeking a third, so if you know anyone who could help, get them to talk to Lesley as soon as possible.     ...

Schnauzers, Giant - week 2Updated : 04/01/2017

LKA FINISHED the show year off, with Norma Rylance taking centre stage for the first time. There were 27 (less ten absent) and Norma found her DCC, his second, and BOB in Heather and Rob Smith’s Boston Blackstone, handled by Karen Fish. Reserve was Herbert’s Grovelea Hip Hop, handled by breeder, Sue Cox.  ...

Schnauzers, Giant - week 50Updated : 07/12/2016

THE NSC was the final club show with CCs but our last breed club show of the year was the SCGB’s open at Weedon.      Like the Northern, it too enjoyed really good support from visitors interested in becoming Schnauzer owners, taking the opportunity of talking to exhibitors about their preferred ...

Schnauzers, Giant - week 48Updated : 28/11/2016

AT THE NSC, Wayne Rylance found his BCC and Bob in Lesley Parker’s Ch Draxpark Hot Like Me, who also pleased Jenny Harrison-Smith for BIS. DCC was the recently-formed Smith and Brown partnership’s Foxwood’s Backtrack.      RDCC to Rob and Heather’s Boston Blackstone-N and Foster...

Schnauzers, Giant - week 45Updated : 04/11/2016

WAYNE Rylance has drawn a good entry of 38 making 46 entries for the Northern championship show at Elsecar on Nov 12, so our breed clubs retained three of the year’s top four positions for Giant entries.      NSC’s overall entry is down about 15 per cent on 2015, with 42 Schnauzers (Lucy Di...

Schnauzers, Giant - week 44Updated : 27/10/2016

CONGRATULATIONS to Kevin and Sandie Cullen and Rita Thomas on Ch Philoma Lana Lang’s great achievements in the last couple of months (including G1 and BIS) and to Sandie and Kevin’s P Tempo, jointly owned with D Smith, PG2 and PG1 at recent shows.      The Giant Club ch show enjoyed the yea...

Schnauzers, Giant - week 40Updated : 30/09/2016

CONGRATULATIONS to Kevin and Sandie Cullen and Rita Thomas on Ch Philoma Lana Lang’s great achievements at Darlington, taking BCC and BOB under Liz Carledge, the group under Steve Hall and then BIS under Graham Hill.

RICHMOND saw Martin Freeman (13,none absent) choose Cullen and Thomas’ Ch Philoma Lana Lang for BB and BOB with Michael Veal’s Philoma Man After Midnight as BD.      RBD was Aylett’s Rillaton Follow That Dream and RBB and BP was Cullen and Smith’s P Tempo.    &...

Schnauzers, Giant - week 37Updated : 09/09/2016

Schnauzers, Giant - week 35Updated : 26/08/2016

CONGRATULATIONS to Michael Veal’s Philoma Man After Midnight on taking the most exciting first CC, with BOB, at WKC under Ernie Patterson (23 less six ab). It’s such a special occasion, especially when the ‘competition’ has done so well previously. I’m sure Michael and breeders, Sandie and Kevin...

Schnauzers, Giant - week 34Updated : 19/08/2016

THE GIANT Club show at Markfield saw a change of date to avoid its historic clash with SKC. Successfully drawing stronger support from the other two sizes, the decision seemed to be a good one, though Giants were a touch down on previous years. It enjoyed a good overall turnout, with strong showing by non-exhibiting visitors...

Schnauzers, Giant - week 31Updated : 29/07/2016

LEEDS saw 23 (less five absent) for Betty Fletcher, who chose the Houchin’s Philoma Pay Back Time for Barnsdale, handled by Hannah as DCC, his first I think, and BOB. Lesley Parker’s Ch Draxpark Black Jack took the reserve.      In bitches, the Cullen and Thomas partnership’s Ch Philo...

Schnauzers, Giant - week 30Updated : 22/07/2016

I SEEM to be completely out of sync! I blame awaiting confirmation of house move date confirmation from HS2!      As a catch-up: at Blackpool (31 less two absent), Frances Krall gave DCC and BOB to Lesley Parker’s Ch Draxpark Black Jack and BCC, her third, so many to Lesley’s Draxpark Hot L...

Schnauzers, Giant - week 27Updated : 01/07/2016

NATIONAL W/P Breeds has drawn 21 for Roz Role (Rozmic) who is judging the show for the second time in five years. The entry continues this year’s downward slide, being 30 per cent lower than 2015 and NWP’s second lowest in ten years, well below their ‘average’ of 30.1      NWP i...

Schnauzers, Giant - week 26Updated : 24/06/2016

Spoke too soon about entries improving.      After Blackpool’s surge, Windsor brought me crashing back to earth, showing a 27 per cent drop on last year, the second lowest general champ entry this year. Being on a working day never helps but at just 19, the figure is well short of Windsor’s...
