Pyrenean Sheepdogs - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

THE ONLY show result to report on is December’s LKA and apologies to exhibitors that this missed the pre-Christmas breed note. Although LKA had no breed classes there was a good turnout of PSDs in the NSC classes under Tan Nagrecha. Steve Phillips’ Friponne du Pic D’Espade Kelltara took BB and BOB. Friponne...

Pyrenean Sheepdogs - week 50Updated : 09/12/2016

THINGS have been fairly quiet on the breed note front; in the main we are up to date with show results and although last week’s show at LKA didn’t have breed classes we normally have a reasonable turnout in the NSC classes, so, at the time of writing, looking forward to the results in due course.   &...

Pyrenean Sheepdogs - week 32Updated : 05/08/2016

UNFORTUNATELY, once again I have to apologise for not posting any breed notes in the last two to three weeks but some fairly serious family health and welfare issues have meant that I have been unable to find the quiet time required to collect my thoughts and finalise an appropriate column.      In th...

Pyrenean Sheepdogs - week 21Updated : 19/05/2016

JUST A quick breed note this week as at the time of writing this I am actually mid-journey and on our way back from the RACP’s regional breed speciality show in the Ardeche, south east France but wanted to catch this weeks copy deadline.      A couple of UK show results to report: at the National...

Pyrenean Sheepdogs - week 18Updated : 28/04/2016

IN THIS week’s note I thought I would broaden the focus away from the normal acknowledgement of major show achievements onto some areas of challenge that the breed and I think the breed club in particular need to deal with going forward. I recently wrote an article for the breed club magazine and I thought it worth cap...

Pyrenean Sheepdogs - week 17Updated : 22/04/2016

THE PSD Club held its second licensed breed open show at Bearley just north of Stratford Upon Avon. While the club show is planned to be an annual event the timing of the show in April rather than August was to take advantage of the opportunity of co-locating the show with the Catalan Club Show with all of the associated ben...

Pyrenean Sheepdogs - week 14Updated : 01/04/2016

NEWS IN from Pat Bayliss – she went to Retford open show where our breed was judged by Jane Lindley. BP, PG1 and BPIS was Bayliss’ Shiresoak She’s The One. The group judge was Tom Johnston and BIS Sue Pollock-Yule.      If you have any trophies for the PMDC of GB open show in the afte...

Pyrenean Sheepdogs - week 12Updated : 21/03/2016

WELL CRUFTS is well and truly over for another year, but yet again not without some controversy in the pastoral group ring taking the headlines. No such problems in the PSD ring however where a total entry of 30 under Jill Peak thoroughly enjoyed their day. Some very crisp judging of 133 OES meant that PSD judging started ju...

Pyrenean Sheepdogs - week 10Updated : 03/03/2016

I RECEIVED the following short message from Mike and Felicity Cafferata announcing the recent loss of their lovely old boy Micou: “It is with great sadness that we have to tell you that Micou (Hobnobs Baptiste at Carabrae) was given sleep on Feb 20 to prevent any further suffering. He was almost 13 years old. Micou had...

Pyrenean Mountain Dogs - week 9Updated : 23/02/2016

I SEE WE are to get three new sets of CCs in 2019-2021 at Manchester, Southern Counties and Darlington. We used to have CC allocation at these shows. It will be interesting to see what entry they attain.      The PMDC of GB held its champ show at Tomlinsons and our judge was Alain Pecoult, breed specia...
