DCC and BOB was Can Am Ch Claircreek Lusitano Oceano Atlantico, owned b...

APOLOGIES for no notes over the last few weeks, but Michael and I snatched a much needed short notice holiday to Crete and now back at the grindstone.      The club open show was a great success and a lovely atmosphere prevailed all day, the raffle table was groaning with lots of Easter goodies along wit...

Portuguese Water Dogs - week 13Updated : 22/03/2017

CRUFTS is all over for another year. I don’t know if it is me or does anyone else feel it is getting more like a circus than ever before, less about the breed judging more a shopping experience. Go on tell me I am bah humbug, perhaps it was because I was feeling decidedly under the weather on the day.   &nbs...

Portuguese Water Dogs - week 10Updated : 01/03/2017

CHELTENHAM open show was held with three classes scheduled, judged by specialist Michelle Spencer who had an entry of 13 with three absent.

Portuguese Water Dogs - week 2Updated : 04/01/2017

I WILL START by wishing everyone a very happy new year and may it be a healthy and successful one.      LKA turned out to be a rather unhealthy show as I have heard of a lot of exhibitors’ dogs having kennel cough around a week later. As I sit here writing these notes I still have two of mine cou...

Portguese Water Dogs - week 51Updated : 13/12/2016

Portuguese Water Dogs - week 40Updated : 28/09/2016

SHERINGHAM held PWD classes for the first time. Sadly there were only two entries for the two classes. It is such a pity that exhibitors do not support the shows that give us classes or where will future judges get their experience and numbers if no one enters.
