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

THE 50th NATIONAL W/PB open show was held as usual at the Sports Connexion Ryton-on-Dunsmore. Judge Charlotte John found her BOB and BP in Sarah Stanton’s Arnscroft In Di Ana Jack. He was later shortlisted in the puppy group under Caroline Friends-Rees. The group here, as always, was very full having over 20 puppies pr...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 7Updated : 09/02/2017

NO CHAMPIONSHIP shows for the breed but members have been out and about with their dogs. In Scotland Debbie Penniston-Fleming took Ch/Am Ch Visions Of Dino of Trollheim who she co-owns with Pat Williams, a long-time supporter of the breed, to the Caledonian 300 class open show held at the Lowland Hall, Ingliston. 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. BOB and G2 was Brenda and Tony Bethell’s Lux Ch Arnscroft Glad Di Ola under Fred Wilkes (Lynfryd), who gives CCs in Dobermanns a breed he has had for 34 years breeding and making up many champi...

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...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 2Updated : 05/01/2017

THE PAWSCARS voting is now open. I had the honour last year of winning the Pawscars Breed Note Writer of the Year. This year there is a Buhund connection with Sophie Wildig, she won the UK Junior Handling Association Final at Discover Dogs. 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

THE FIRST weekend in December was a busy weekend for a number of Buhunds and their owners. The Kennel Club Building at Stoneleigh was the destination for the Quatre Bu Obreedience team of Jacqui Cobb and Knytshall Angel Delight co owned with husband Michael and Nancy Kent, Sarah Stonton and Trelowen Andrea (Loxy), and myself...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 49Updated : 01/12/2016

THE NORDIC is the only show in the UK just for Spitz breeds; it is the same as the FCI Group 5 although without the primitive breeds. Many years ago it was held in the summer but more recently it has been on the last weekend in November, at the Sky Blue Connexion, Coventry. Not the most popular time of the year with some exh...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 48Updated : 25/11/2016

AT THE time of writing top puppy in breed is Sue Croker’s Knytshall Noor Ul Ain. She has a RBCC and three BP at ch shows with CCs including the breed ch show, and one without CCs, also many wins at open shows with group placings. These of course do not count, but are none the less nice to have. Bred by Jacqui and Micha...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 47Updated : 17/11/2016

WHEN I finished last week’s notes I wondered what news I would have to write about this week with the show season slowing down. I need not have worried you were all fantastic, the news just kept coming, thank you very much. So in no particular order as they say on Strictly Come Dancing.      For ...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 46Updated : 09/11/2016

AT THE time of writing Margaret Garvie with her Rhialis kennel is leading the Buhunds in the top breeder competition. She has had a very successful show season with her three homebred dogs. It started at SKC when under Jack Bispham R Psyche was BOB, winning her fourth BCC. She is by Ch/Am Ch Visions Dino at Trollheim (Casper...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 45Updated : 03/11/2016

MIDLAND Counties has scheduled the breed without CCs for ten years. At first the club ch show was the same weekend or a day or two after, as the show moves its group days. Some breed clubs like to have shows back to back, but it did not work for us, so it was decided to move the club show to the previous weekend. The committ...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 44Updated : 27/10/2016

KERRY Frost, who, with husband Fritz, have been successful breeders and exhibitors of Buhunds for over 35 years, making up many chs with the Frostisen affix. The most well known are probably Ch Leitegards Kong Olav Av F, imported from Norway. He sired many of the champions bred by the Frosts including F Jozefine, F Leif, F L...

Norwegian Buhunds - week 43Updated : 19/10/2016

OVER THE weeks I have told you about the Buhund puppy Knytshall Cora Sun Drop of Maubrea (Fern). She is owned by Maureen and Brian Lake and is litter sister to Sue Croker’s K Noor Ul Ain and Jacqui and Michael Cobb and Nancy Kent’s K Moon of Josephine.
