Bolognese - week 26Updated : 21/06/2017

WHO CAN believe this amazing weather we have been experiencing this weekend? My Bolognese and Maltese have been making the most of it, stretched out with no sign of feeling hot. As I always tell my new puppy owners, the coat has a purpose. To keep them cool when it’s hot. All my Bolognese are in full show coat, includi...

Bolognese - week 25Updated : 13/06/2017

THE WEATHER when attending any outdoor championship show plays an important part for everyone – what to wear, don’t want to be too hot or more than likely frozen to the marrow. It’s not easy to keep these little white dogs clean – we are so reliant on the weather.      Going to Th...

I HAVE enjoyed reading Melanie’s breed notes for the past couple of years – always full of enthusiasm and interest. She has now decided to step down and has asked me if I would like to take over.

BATH SHOW in all accounts was hot, hot, hot! I had reports that it was friendly, although not many people attended for a championship show, 11 dogs where shown on the day.

BIRMINGHAM National was a nice show. They moved our ring so we could start around 2.15pm.

Bolognese - week 12Updated : 16/03/2017

I HAVE been gathering feedback over the last few days since Crufts and have compiled a report. Some people did have problems the evening before, getting down from The North as there was a lorry fire on the M6 causing several hour of standstill traffic, nightmare for a few people.      There was lots of t...

CHRIS Thatcher took her ten month old bitch Devonia’s Siena through NSC to win BP toy at Ilfracombe under Andrew Scourfield.      I am on holiday next week, so there will not be any breed notes.

I CONTACTED our Crufts 2017 judge Carolyn Roe via The Kennel Club and asked for a judge’s profile, as I couldn’t find anything online. I thought that people would be interested to find out about Carolyn.      Carolyn writes: “I have always had a passion for dogs and my mother and father...

Bolognese - week 5Updated : 26/01/2017

ACTUAL numbers looked a bit disappointing at Manchester on Sunday under Mr A Easdon. When I first looked at the results online only the dog results were published and there were only five dogs competing. But it seems the bitches brought up the numbers. So, we have our results for the first Ch show of the year. BOB went to Ms...
