Norwegian Buhunds - week 16Updated : 12/04/2017

THE CLUB open show moved from Overseal Village Hall to the Shirland Village Hall in Derbyshire, which was larger than Overseal and gave show manager Jacqui Walmsley more choice in the layout of the ring. There was also more room for cages and it was generally much easier to walk around. Outside there is large flat area of gr...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 15Updated : 06/04/2017

A RECENT weekend was very busy for a number of members and their dogs. It started on the Saturday with Millie Lambert attending Bristol Dog Club show at Hutton Moor Leisure Centre, Weston Super Mare. She took her husband’s homebred Sturtmoor Destiny’s Day (Lotto) who was BOB and her seven-and-half-month old puppy...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 14Updated : 30/03/2017

NO SHOWS to report but reading some old Bu News from the late 1970s, I decided not a lot has changed, having seen an article which reminded me of a piece I wrote a few weeks ago. This was about a lady who said to Maureen Lake who was out walking Knytshall Cora Sun Drop of Maubrea, “such a pretty dog but obviously a mix...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 13Updated : 22/03/2017

ONE LAST reflection on Crufts from Jenny Shorer Wheeler. It was her 20th time there and Ch Maidof Copper of Kormandel (Piika) co owned with Lorraine Bolton won the 20th CC for dogs bred or owned by the Koromandel kennel. Jenny said it was just five years ago she was dreaming of holding a large green card, rather than just pa...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 11Updated : 08/03/2017

DEPENDING on whether you read these notes online or in paper form, Crufts will either be about to happen or have happened but whichever it is, I hope all of you that attended enjoyed the show and you will have taken the best dog home.      At Oakhampton Yvonne King’s Ch Trelowen Heligan (Sami) was ...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 10Updated : 03/03/2017

AS USUAL Buhunds and their owners have been out and about flying the Buhund flag. Brenda Bethell wrote to tell me about the Welsh Junior of the Year 2017: “Husband Tony and I decided that our Minforst Galadreil (Ella) by Zodiac’s Featuring Fredrik At Taevas of Minforst ex Lux/Int Ch Arnscroft Glad Di Ola, should ...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 9Updated : 23/02/2017

LAST JUNE the following petition was discussed in Parliament: “Fireworks now occur at all times of the day and evening for many weeks during the autumn and winter. Pet and animal owners struggle to keep their companion animals safe during this extended period. We call for fireworks use by the general public to be permi...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 8Updated : 16/02/2017

NO CHAMPIONSHIP shows for the breed but members have been out and about with their dogs.

He was BNSC...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 6Updated : 02/02/2017

SEVERAL stalwart exhibitors made their way on a very soggy Sunday to the Cwmbran Stadium, Henllys Way for the Cardiff CS show.

Norwegian Buhunds - week 5Updated : 27/01/2017

WHEN WE lost CCs at Manchester many years ago we also lost classes for the breed. In those days the show was at the GMex in the centre of Manchester and there was no room for breeds without CCs. The building was originally Manchester’s central railway station and was the northern terminus from St Pancras, becoming a gr...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

I START with some very sad news, that of the death of Brenda Solomon. Very few of you will have known her personally or spoken to her, but her actions have had a profound effect on the breed in the UK.      The person who knew her best in this country is Debbie Penniston-Fleming who wrote on the news of ...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 3Updated : 11/01/2017

BOSTON has taken place, sadly this year without any Buhund classes. It was never popular with exhibitors in spite of filling the gap between LKA and Crufts, although without CCs. Last year the numbers dropped even further with classes back at Manchester. Held at Stafford this show is more central and a little further into Ja...

She was trained by Neil Hood and has handled his and Julian Collins’ Ch Arnscro...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 1Updated : 29/12/2016

JUST ONE more look back at 2016 before we go forward to the start of the 2017 show season. In DW, Dec 23 the headline on the front page said ‘Top Dog 2016 down to the wire’ as it was decided on the last day of LKA. The top breeder in the Buhunds did the same, also being decided at LKA.     ...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 52Updated : 19/12/2016

I HOPE you saw the photo of our winning Quatrebu Obreedience team in Dog World, Dec 16, and on the next page there was a photo of my and daughter Debbie’s Ch/Bel Ch Tonylynn’s Charles Lafitte (Fizz) winning G3 in G5 which is for Spitz and Primitive Breeds at the Eurodogshow, nice publicity for the breed.  ...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 51Updated : 13/12/2016

I WOULD like to wish you all a very happy Christmas. At the time of writing I do not know what the weather will be like, so I hope that it does not affect any of your travel plans and that you and your canines have an enjoyable time.      LKA is always popular with exhibitors as it has Christmas feel. ...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 50Updated : 07/12/2016
