Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 22Updated : 26/05/2017

QUITE a bit of good news from the Pembroke scene this week. Much as we may moan about some aspects of the world of dogs, aren’t we lucky to have such an absorbing hobby in which to escape when the ‘real’ world is all too horrible.      First, Ch Pemcader Thunderball continues to keep th...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 21Updated : 18/05/2017

WE ARRIVED at Stoneleigh for the League ch show only to find the usual car park was closed and we and the Tibetan Terrier people, who were holding a celebration ch show in the other half of the Kennel Club building, were having to share the gravel area near the entrance. In fact there proved to be more than enough room for u...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 20Updated : 12/05/2017

CH PEMCADER Thunderball returned to the scene of his big triumph last year and National judge Erica Blunstone (Corrogs) awarded him his 27th CC plus BOB. This time he went on to G4 under Jean Lanning. For the first quarter of the year he has maintained his ranking as number three all breeds which was his position at the end ...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 19Updated : 05/05/2017

WELKS may not have CCs for the breed but the ladies usually give us a breed judge and this time it was Carole Froggatt (Gerefa).      Continuing his winning run was Kevin Dover and Lars Saether’s Ch Pemcader Thunderball (Ch P Belroyd Zeus ex P Black Glamour) and he went on to G2 under Toni Jackson....

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 18Updated : 28/04/2017

SOME EXCITING news to start with – in 2018 both Corgi breeds have been given an extra set of CCs so that the League and the Cardigan WCA can jointly hold a special championship show.      In recent years some Scandinavian enthusiasts have tried to encourage international co-operation by designating...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 17Updated : 24/04/2017

W/P BREEDS of Wales saw Ch Pemcader Thunderball win his 26th CC under Alan Barlow (Pendrell/Highworth) and go on to take his fifth group plus RBIS, judge Richard Kinsey. Sure I don’t need to repeat his details.      He was G2 at this show last year and in the intervening 12 months has won every dog...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 16Updated : 13/04/2017

MY APOLOGIES that some of last week’s notes were a repeat of the previous week – my fault, senility sets in! So I’ll start with what should have appeared!      I expect you will have seen our tribute to Frances Toman in DOG WORLD. She will be greatly missed in the breed and in Irish dog...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 13Updated : 24/03/2017

THE LEAGUE has a new president and chairman, Sue Harrison and Diana King having completed their terms of office. Annie Maclean is president, a fitting honour in recognition of her amazing 42 years as handbook editor, and Mary Davies chairman. Joy Whitehead succeeds Mary as vice-chairman.      Don’t...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 12Updated : 17/03/2017

CRUFTS for many began with the Pawscar awards ceremony on the Wednesday evening and here Kevin and Lars were presented with the pastoral group trophy from last year’s Dog World/Arden Grange top dog competition.      Over the next few days I met up with several Pem people. Tracy Irving took BP and R...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 11Updated : 08/03/2017

IT’S BEEN a busy time for Joy Whitehead as just a few days before the hustle and bustle of Discover Dogs the Midland Club held its open show where Carole Mitchell (Cantone) judged the Pems and BIS. Top spot overall went to Amanda Rees’ Stadwen Lancelot (Cordach Gatland ex Ch S Honey Bunn) with BB to Teresa Maddox...

Welsh Corgis, Pembroke - week 10Updated : 03/03/2017

CONGRATULATIONS to Sarah Taylor who has been awarded the Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme Accolade of Excellence. I think the only other Pem people with this accolade are Chris and Nicky Blance.      Sue Harrison (Haresfoot) is judging at East of England ‘18, John Essenhigh (Brynlluan) at Bath &l...

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...
