NOT LONG now until Crufts. Two breed clubs have stands this year – Samoyed Breeders and Owners League and the SA. I shall be on the SBOL stand so please come and say hello, and the yearbook, which is free for members, will be available to collect; the rest will be posted out after Crufts. Memberships can also be paid. ...

A BUSY weekend for open shows with Samoyeds doing very well: At National W/PB, with classes supported by the Samoyed Association, Geoff Duffield was judging Samoyeds and BOB was Moody and Haffendens’ Novaskaya Lysandro Lefay, and BP and RBOB went to Manns’ Nikara Dream Maker, who went on to PG4.   &nbs...

Samoyeds - week 6Updated : 02/02/2017

THE ANNUAL Aviemore rally saw a few teams of Samoyeds competing. Well done to David Ellis who was second in the D2 class (racing with two dogs) with Michelle Green coming in fourth, and she was also the highest placed newcomer. It was really interesting watching the videos of the dogs as they all looked as if they were reall...

Samoyeds - week 5Updated : 27/01/2017

MANCHESTER, the first show of the year with CCs for Samoyeds, was held at Stafford Showground. It was a very cold, but crisp and thankfully dry day.

Samoyeds - week 2Updated : 05/01/2017

WHAT BETTER way to see the new year in than racing in Elvedon Forest in Norfolk, which was the venue for UCSC (United Canine Sport Club) rally over the new year weekend.      Well done to everyone who took part in various events with their Samoyeds. Congratulations to Tammy McNeill who with ‘Supe...

Samoyeds - week 1Updated : 29/12/2016

HAPPY new year to you all. As we start 2017 I started thinking how living with Samoyeds has changed. Dog cages/crates and trolleys are now the norm, grooming tables have become lighter and cheaper, yellow soak up cloths are a marvellous invention, vet bed is almost indestructible, but the piece of equipment that I wouldn&rsq...

Samoyeds - week 52Updated : 20/12/2016

BY THE time you read these notes Christmas will be over for another year so I hope you all had a good Christmas and didn’t eat and drink too much!

THE JUDGE at the Nordic show was Mr K Baldwin and for BOB he selected Ewa Dudeks’ Lighto The Twinkling Star of Blossomrain and BP was Bules’ Belluchi Royal Snow First Lady.      Unfortunately neither BOB or BP could stay as both had qualified for the Northern SS’s Samoyed of the Year ...

Samoyeds - week 47Updated : 17/11/2016

IT WAS a crisp, dry morning for the SBOL championship show at Lutterworth Sport Centre. This show is traditionally held on Remembrance Sunday and this year we again observed the two minutes’ silence at 11am and the dogs do seem to know. A hush came over the hall, then when the two minutes were up, the barking resumed a...

Samoyeds - week 46Updated : 10/11/2016

W/PB OF SCOTLAND saw a change of judge for Samoyeds.

DCC went to Jackie Collinsons&...

Samoyeds - week 44Updated : 27/10/2016

DISCOVER Dogs was held at ExCel Centre in London. What a lovely venue and so easy to get to. The last time I went to Discover Dogs in London it was held at Earls Court, and parking and getting dogs into the venue was not easy. Many thanks to Liz Hunt and Tammie McNeill who manned the booth with their dogs on Saturday, and Pe...
