Siberian Huskies - week 7Updated : 08/02/2017

WE SAW in 2017 with our dogs at a race (can you think of anything better?) and the early part of the year has followed very much in that theme. Just the past few weeks have seen us racing with UCSC, BSSF, BSHRA and SHCGB in consecutive weekends at venues as diverse and amazing in their own way as a Welsh coastal forest, the ...

Siberian Huskies - week 3Updated : 10/01/2017

IT IS STILL not too late to say happy new year to all DOG WORLD readers, but still apologies for the delay in getting these done. I have been having our usual internet problems lately!      The LKA weekend fell between two of our BSHRA race weekends, so we were able to get to this one and it was a grea...

Siberian Huskies - week 50Updated : 07/12/2016

THE WEEKS are flying by at the moment; hard to believe we’re in December already with the race season in full swing with all of the different organisations having held at least a couple of events. It’s a rude awakening when it still hasn’t quite sunk in that winter is actually here and you realise you have ...

Siberian Huskies - week 45Updated : 09/11/2016

SIMILAR to Mel I have been extremely hectic lately and hence my notes are somewhat late also.      For the first time this autumn we have recorded some ground frost temperatures in our training book – hallelujah. We and the dogs were all very excited! Each time it has been a beautiful morning too...

Siberian Huskies - week 43Updated : 19/10/2016

FIRSTLY, huge apologies to those who have been tuning in to these breed notes only to be met with radio silence for a bit – entirely my fault. It was my turn to write the notes and unfortunately it has been one of those periods where my work life balance has definitely swung heavily in favour of work. That has been add...

Siberian Huskies - week 38Updated : 16/09/2016

AT THE SSHC championship show John Richie judged the dogs and he found his CC in Robert Houston and family’s young dog Rajarani Dominique (nicknamed Mouse), who came out of the junior class. This was his first CC and he has had only limited showing so a super win for them. Robert has sent me the following about their b...

Siberian Huskies - week 36Updated : 02/09/2016

IT IS WITH great sadness that we heard of Natalie Norris’ (from the renowned Alaskan/Anadyr Siberians) death via her grandaughter Lisbet. For a full obituary please see page 4.      The 1996 ISHC article, courtesy of Bob and Pam: “Five decades – 50 years – half a century! No mat...

Siberian Huskies - week 35Updated : 26/08/2016

WELL, THE summer South Coast shows have been and gone which must mean we’re at the end of August and hurtling towards autumn and (I hope) cooler, fresher weather. For me, the last few weeks have passed in a blur of ridiculously early mornings to give the gang a leg stretch, some big doggy birthdays, girls (and, ine...

Siberian Huskies - week 31Updated : 28/07/2016

AT THE National W/PB Caroline Friend-Rees had an entry of 75 and she found her DCC in Stephanie Downey and Malcolm Last’s Snoqualmie Jupiter Makanni. This was his first CC and he won out of limit. This is a great achievement especially as I know he injured himself rather badly the year before last and it was in some do...

Siberian Huskies - week 30Updated : 21/07/2016

I HAVE frequently, over the years, been very grateful for having a breed which is generally so long lived in comparison to so many other breeds.      We have been very lucky with our Siberians as in 47 years we have only lost one to cancer under the age of ten years. Many of our dogs have lived to 15 y...

Siberian Huskies - week 29Updated : 18/07/2016

I’M NOT a big fan of summer but this year, it seems to be moving along quickly. The past few weeks have flown by with an eventful trio of shows that have produced three new champions for the breed as well as a rare RBIS at a general championship show.      At Blackpool, all-rounder Zena Thorn-And...

Siberian Huskies - week 27Updated : 01/07/2016

AS IS ALWAYS the case at this time of year, there are a few shows to report on so I will catch up with these this time round.      At Southern Counties Arvid Goransson from Sweden had an entry of 48 and he found his DCC in Michael Patrick’s Tom Bombadil Of Poliarine Arktika at Coldasice. I believ...

Siberian Huskies - week 23Updated : 03/06/2016

SPRING bank holiday was very kind to us in our part of the country and the dogs enjoyed three consecutive mornings in the forest. May has been great for us and the weather hasn’t interrupted weekend training. Running a few teams followed by a long walk with the retired dogs and stopping off for breakfast and talking do...

Siberian Huskies - week 20Updated : 16/05/2016

MANY APOLOGIES to Richard and Sharon Sargent for listing the wrong BPIS at the club show in April.      This should have read Richard and Sharon Sargent’s Keriquel Aqualight (nicknamed Matilda) who won the MP and PB classes.             S...

Siberian Huskies - week 19Updated : 03/05/2016

WELL IT seems that winter has finally arrived now we are nearly at the end of spring! We have had some wonderful cold training mornings with regular ground frosts lately and it has been pretty cold during the day also, crazy but actually far from unusual these days. Warm autumns/early winters and cold springs seem to be beco...

Siberian Huskies - week 15Updated : 05/04/2016

I THINK everyone’s thoughts – both within Siberians and in the wider dog showing world – will be very much with the family of Anthony Rees whose funeral takes place this week after his hard fought nine-year long battle came to an end. Anthony will be very much missed by even those of us who only knew him...

Siberian Huskies - week 11Updated : 14/03/2016

THIS HAS been the strangest racing season that I have ever experienced weather wise and we have basically had mild or virtually tropical conditions for virtually every event. The second event in February being particularly galling as we had ground frosts all week leading up to the event and again straight after it but just f...

Siberian Huskies - week 8Updated : 18/02/2016

WELL, WINTER is hurtling along towards spring and the end of race season which is always a bit depressing. When you enjoy racing as much and as often as we do, the “colder” months tend to fly by in a blur of training, events and – in between – work (or hunting for kibble and meat as my dogs seem to th...

Siberian Huskies - week 6Updated : 02/02/2016

AT BOSTON show breed judge Nicky Steel had an entry of 44. She found her DCC in Shelly and Linda Wynne’s Icebex Space Cowboy at Mydisa, and this was his crowning CC. He gained his other two CCs under Simon Luxmoore and Pauline Luxmoore-Ball. RDCC went to Andrew and Chris Grisbrooks Azgard Glock. This was his first gree...
