Bearded Collies - week 26Updated : 21/06/2017

BORDER Union was held during the recent heatwave but I’m told conditions were good for dogs and humans. This is one of the shows that always seems to go the second mile to make the day enjoyable for exhibitors, and one of those steps is to ensure breeds are parked close to their benching areas. This is a big bonus and ...

Bearded Collies - week 25Updated : 14/06/2017

HAYDN Platts judged at Three Counties, drawing an excellent entry for what I’m told was a very enjoyable day. Haydn found his BCC and BOB winner in Roxilyn Raise The Roof (Ch Sammara Over The Moon ex Ch Sengalas Leading Lady of R). This was Katie’s second ticket. DCC went to the winner of yearling, Natterjack Sta...

Bearded Collies - week 24Updated : 07/06/2017

APOLOGIES for the lack of breed notes last week but watching over a newly born litter of ten puppies kept me otherwise engaged!      Caroline Nicholson judged at Bath which was blessed with good weather and consequently much less of the runny red mud that is so often associated with the show. DCC and BOB...

Bearded Collies - week 22Updated : 24/05/2017

DESPITE the driving rain and high winds we’ve been experiencing it must be spring because SKC has taken place. Val Gamble did the honours and awarded the DCC and BOB to Ch Potterdale Platinum Plus. ‘Russell’ wasn’t placed in the group this time but saved his magic for the champion stakes where he won ...

Bearded Collies - week 21Updated : 17/05/2017

THE JBLC’s workshop ‘Shaping the Future: A Positive Direction for the Bearded Collie’ was very well attended by around 80 breed enthusiasts. The event was designed to provide an opportunity to discuss the Proposed Breed Strategy and followed the series of regional breed workshops.      ...

Bearded Collies - week 20Updated : 10/05/2017

BIRMINGHAM National was judged by specialist Lesley Tomlinson who found her BOB in Ch Potterdale Platinum Plus (Ch Sengalas Indianna Jones ex Ch P Pure Platinum). Russell went on to excel himself in the group where he won first place. He put in a very good performance in the BIS ring, but was sadly unplaced. BCC went to Ch S...

Bearded Collies - week 19Updated : 04/05/2017

CATH LEIGHTON (previously Moffat) judged a good entry at WELKS very efficiently. BCC and BOB was Ch Moonhill Sweet Sensation of Atherleigh (Ch A Mahogany Moon ex Ch M Zweet Dreamz). DCC was that all important third for Corimist Chicago for Kiltondale (Alistair’s Kaiser Chief for K ex Geliland Musical Breeze at C). &nb...

Bearded Collies - week 18Updated : 26/04/2017

THERE should be a three line whip for the May 13 meeting of the Joint Breed Liaison Council at the Canine Academy, Tollerton. The day will focus on ‘Shaping the future, a positive direction for the Bearded Collie – an opportunity to discuss the proposed breed strategy’.      The day sta...

Bearded Collies - week 17Updated : 20/04/2017

THE EASTER weekend was packed with open and championship shows and blessed with good weather. I know that several Beardie enthusiasts caravanned at the Newark and Notts Showground, which hosted at least two open shows and a club championship show, all of which attracted good entries. I do wonder if this type of show ‘c...

Bearded Collies - week 16Updated : 12/04/2017

I WAS BROWSING through a veterinary book recently and was surprised to find Beardies as one of the breeds found to be affected by cleft palates and hare lips. In the years I’ve been breeding I’ve never come across a puppy with this defect.      As a show judge I have seen two dogs with very t...

Bearded Collies - week 15Updated : 05/04/2017

THE BCC staged a successful open show at the Harry Mitchell Centre. The centre had been hit by a falling tree in the recent storms but although there were some initial fears that the show would need to be held in the open the hall was ready for use on the day when Stuart Band tackled an excellent entry.    &n...

Bearded Collies - week 14Updated : 30/03/2017

KAREN Edwards awarded CCs for the first time at Scottish Breeds and found her BOB in the new champion Sammara Little Black Dress (Ch Moonhill Power Of Dreamz ex Ch S Moonlight Shadow).

Bearded Collies - week 13Updated : 22/03/2017

THE BCC held its AGM recently and I’m pleased to tell you that Paula Brookes has been elected as president. Robynne Wood is the new committee chairman, which surely would have made her grandmother Jenny Osborne very proud.      I’ve had several enquiries over the meaning of ‘effective p...

Bearded Collies - week 12Updated : 15/03/2017

THE EXCITEMENT and exhaustion that is Crufts is over and we have a year to recover in time for the next one! This year we were on the final day and the crowds seemed even thicker than usual. I thought the dogs coped extremely well and I didn’t see any that were upset or stressed.      Ann Andrews j...

Bearded Collies - week 9Updated : 23/02/2017

IAN PICKUP judged at the Midshires BCC open show and awarded BIS to Sammara Little Black Dress (Ch Moonhill Power Of Dreamz ex Ch S Moonlight Shadow). RBIS went to the junior bitch Natterjack Nordic Star over Clovabrae (Ch Larkangen’s Aiming For The Stars ex Ch Malandex Xploits with N). BP was Malandex Xpressly Chosen ...

Bearded Collies - week 8Updated : 15/02/2017

PUPPY registrations for 2016 fell to 284, well below the 300 level the Kennel Club uses to define ‘vulnerable breeds’. I think the fall below this threshold has been on the cards for some years as there has been a relentless decline since the peak of 2,000-plus registrations per year that we enjoyed in the 1980s....

Bearded Collies - week 7Updated : 09/02/2017

THE SCBCC staged yet another top class championship show. The various club shows are always my favourite events and this one was among the best. After a long and tiring journey it is fantastic to be met with a welcoming cup of coffee and piece of cake or the club’s world famous bread pudding. I’m not sure who mak...

Bearded Collies - week 6Updated : 02/02/2017

SOME EXCITING news about our Antonia Leech. She has reached the final five in the Young Kennel Club’s prestigious Outstanding Young Person of the Year award, winning the Sporting Talent category. It would mean so much to her if you could give your support and vote for her. The winner will be announced on the last day o...

Bearded Collies - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

THE FUNERAL for Alan Stevens was held at the Boston Crematorium and attended by a large group of people representing different groups that Alan had touched during his lifetime. The service was humanist and the final piece of music – chosen by Alan – raised a smile in the sad occasion as it was Queen’s Anoth...
