MY APOLOGIES to Ann French for omitting her RCC result at Manchester with Ch Foxearth Flock Master for Breckamore, bringing his total, according to my records, to 14 CCs and nine RCCs.

I WAS REALLY sorry to hear from Delia Moores that she had lost her lovely tricolour boy, the homebred Manordeifi Shadow Chaser at the early age of seven, after several years of poor health.

THE INFORMATION I had about South Wales was incorrect, and I have subsequently heard that Amy Kinsey was unwell and therefore could not do her Smooth Collie judging. Pity, as she was also down to judge Estrelas and had drawn a good entry. Hope she is now feeling better.      My plea for ‘working&...

FOLLOWING my query about SAC classes at the W of England CS, Brenda Trundley rang me to say that due to unforseen circumstances at home she had been unable to get to WECS and had telephoned to let them know.
