Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 9Updated : 24/02/2017

AS USUAL I asked our Crufts judge for a brief profile of her Corgi activities. We all know the impact the Ermyns have made in recent years at home and abroad, so over to Mary Davies: “My love for Corgis began when I was just ten years old. I was given my very own Corgi puppy, a Cardigan, for my birthday by my parents. ...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 8Updated : 17/02/2017

ANDY CARTER (Saddle Lane) made a flying visit from New York to judge at the South Eastern CA. It was good that while he was here he was able to meet up with Sue Llewellyn who is so much missed from the Pembroke rings – we all wish you well, Sue. In the late ‘80s Andy had the glamorous tri Courtllyn Chagal from Su...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 7Updated : 10/02/2017

MY THANKS to Dave Asbridge, Margaret Hoggarth and Tracy Irving for news from the double show day held at Cabus near Lancaster, with the League Northern Section open show in the morning and the Pennine and Yorkshire open show after lunch.      I hope this idea proved successful for both exhibitors and org...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 6Updated : 03/02/2017

VERY LITTLE news this week but Tracy and Kath Irving continue to support the open shows and had another good weekend. At Lichfield Twinan Dip Yer Butty was BP and BOB under Lynda Parrish and won the puppy group under Tracey Wilkinson. The kennel had two in the BPIS line-up and the Jack Russell ended up BPIS. The following da...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 5Updated : 26/01/2017

BOB BONNER (Corgwood) was our judge at Manchester and the top awards went to established champions.      BOB, taking his 22nd CC (and tenth consecutively), was the star of last year Ch Pemcader Thunderball (Ch P Belroyd Zeus ex P Black Glamour) for Kevin Dover and Lars Saether, and he went on to G4 under...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

REGISTRATIONS for the breed for 2016 amounted to 393, 27 more than in 2015 and the highest figure since 2008. We therefore remain off the ‘vulnerable’ list, though still in the Kennel Club’s ‘at watch’ category. Let’s hope a few more breeders aiming for the show ring join the ranks in the ...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 3Updated : 13/01/2017

SAD TO hear of the death of Erma Kovach from Ohio, one of the great characters of the Pembroke world, at the age of 89.      Apart from Corgis, Erma’s special passion was aviation in which she achieved considerable distinction, flying aircraft of all types including sailplanes and amphibious craf...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 2Updated : 05/01/2017

LATEST instalment of the 2016 review covers the BP winners. Two bitches top the table with five BP awards apiece at shows where CCs were on offer: Barry and Sue Coulson’s Woodhenge Star Xtravaganza (Ch/Ir/Int Ch Craigycor Lightning Bolt ex Ch W Star Maiden) and Hannah and Patricia Fawcett’s Whitebarn Sea Shell (C...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 1Updated : 28/12/2016

A LOOK back over the RCC winners of 2016. Let’s start with the males who also won a CC or more and whose breeding was given last week:      Oregonian Snow Tiger and Stadwen Sirocco took three RCCs; Ch Pemcader Thunderball and Andvol Marrakesh two; and Penliath Soul Man, Ch/Rus/Ukr Ch Ermyn Snow K...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 52Updated : 20/12/2016

I’M QUITE sure you don’t need me to tell you who was the top-winning Pembroke of 2016. Ch Pemcader Thunderball has won a remarkable 17 CCs during the year; I’m not sure if any other Pem has ever achieved that. The last nine have been won at consecutive shows. His total comes to 21. Of this year’s C...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 51Updated : 15/12/2016

LKA PROVIDED an appropriate climax to what has been a remarkable year for the breed. Kim Nielsen of the Blondie’s kennel in Denmark was the judge. Although nowadays best known for their famous Cardis, the kennel has shown top winning Pems too, as well as St Bernards.      Kevin Dover and Lars Sae...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 50Updated : 12/12/2016

A FEW further results from the Welsh Corgi Club show. RBD was Caron Macgregor’s Ch Nireno Luke Skywalker (Am Ch Double G’s Anakin Skywalker ex N Live And Letfly) and RBB Babs and Wally Aylott’s Barwal Brave Tara (Ermyn Forrester at Brisam ex Brisam Subaru).      Another celebration fo...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 49Updated : 29/11/2016

SAD TO hear of the death of Ray Arnold whom many of you will remember as secretary of the West of England CA – he took over after the club’s founders Nesta and Bill Reid retired. In the 1980s he showed a good daughter of Ch Kilvewood Over The Moon called Moonlight Tropicana, and also did some winning with her dau...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 48Updated : 25/11/2016

RUTH TURNER, from the printers NB Colour Print, has kindly agreed to compile the League handbook following the retirement of Annie Maclean. She has plenty of experience in putting together such publications, so I’m sure the tradition of quality handbooks going back to the 1940s will be maintained.    ...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 46Updated : 11/11/2016

IT WAS a shock to hear of the death of David Smith who had been part of the Pembroke world for well over 50 years.      He rather burst onto the Corgi scene in the early ‘60s with a dog and bitch he bought from Nan Butler. The tri dog Flanagan of Wey, bred by Mrs Denham (Arunfold), wasn’t a...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 45Updated : 04/11/2016

I MENTIONED briefly last week that Annie Maclean has decided to retire as Handbook editor for the League. I’m sure that you will agree that we owe Annie an enormous debt of gratitude for carrying out this task since 1975! That is an extraordinary record of service to the breed and I can’t imagine there are many p...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 44Updated : 28/10/2016

THANKS as always to organiser Joy Whitehead for a report on the breed stand at Discover Dogs:      She writes: “The Pembroke booth at ExCel was as usual successful with much interest in both acquiring a Pembroke and in the stand itself.       “Volunteers were in ...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 43Updated : 21/10/2016

WHAT A difference it makes when a club publishes the results of its shows online within minutes of the end of the judging, so a big thank you for Tracy Irving at the Pennine and Yorkshire and Jason Klawinski at the PWCCA for making available the marked catalogues, much appreciated.      P/Y judge was J...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 42Updated : 14/10/2016

TOM JOHNSTON (Feldkirk gundogs and hounds) was awarding CCs in the breed for the first time at South Wales and his two winners were the same as the previous week under Mary Magness.      It was a 17th CC for Kevin Dover and Lars Saether’s Ch Pemcader Thunderball (Ch P Belroyd Zeus ex P Black Glam...
