Cavaliers - week 26Updated : 22/06/2017

WHILE I was away judging in America I was sad to miss the Humberside champ show. I can’t remember the last time I didn’t attend as it’s held at a local venue (Newark) and is always a well-run affair.      This year the club had invited Marilyn Madigan over from Australia to judge bitche...

I’LL START with some sad new this week. I just heard that Tom Boardman (Volney) died peacefully in his sleep. I don’t know any more details except that Joyce requests people don’t call her at this time as the family tries to come to terms with their sad loss.      Three counties was jud...

BATH TOOK place in beautiful conditions, coupled with the perfectly maintained and set out showground it made for a gorgeous setting and an enjoyable day. The in/out tents were perfect to allow the dogs to move out in the sunshine, but to shelter in the shade whilst waiting.      There was plenty of room...

SKC WAS blessed with beautiful weather for toy day and although judging now takes place indoors it is still nice to be able to exercise them outside without fear of them getting wet or muddy! Judging the breed was Philip Lovel who had an entry of about 100 to assess. He awarded Am Ch Miletree Joshua his first CC from open, h...

WELL, I was wrong about the weather at WELKS. As it turned out it was a very nearly perfect spring day allowing for all the judging to take place outside in the large, dry grass rings.      Marion Wiggins was judging the entry and ultimately chose to award a first CC to both the bitch and the dog. From t...

THERE’S very little news at the moment as there hasn’t been any ch shows but that will soon change as the show season really begins! I after all the sunny hot weather we had at the start of the month I was feeling quite hopeful that WELKS would be judged outdoors in the lovely setting under the Malvern hills. But...

THE EASTERN Society held its ch show on a beautiful sunny day in Cambridgeshire. Awarding CCs for the very first time and judging dogs was Cesar Cortes while travelling from the other side of the world to judge the bitches was Jeanie Montford from Australia. We saw the third new champion of 2017 crowned in the dog ring when ...

THE CAVALIER club are sorry to announce that Elaine Berwick has stood down as chairman of the club due to personal reasons. Rob Dix will be acting chairman and can be reached on chair@thecavalierclub.co.uk.      The Southern Club held its ch show with Peter Hill judging bitches and Katherine Li the dogs....

Cavaliers - week 14Updated : 30/03/2017

UK TOY is one of the favourite shows for many exhibitors, me included! I know that many used to enjoy having the Prestwood Centre all to ourselves but I do quite like the new ring allocation which makes it feel a bit more like we’re part of the rest of the show. Not only that but it’s much less of a trek for thos...

ANOTHER competition featuring Cavaliers at Crufts was the finals of the Obreedience competition. Lucy Dawson sent me this report on the event. She writes: “The finals of the Obreedience competition (a group competition designed to prove that other breeds than Collies and Shepherds are trainable) were held at Crufts on ...

CRUFTS is over for another year. There were some lovely results for our breed throughout the show. In the breed ring Frank Kane judged dogs and Lorraine Gillhespy the bitches. From the dog entry Frank chose Sedgbeer’s Ch Castlewytch Rave On with Russmic as his CC winner with Gibb-Stuart’s Chantismere Push My Butt...

Cavaliers - week 11Updated : 08/03/2017

THE HIGHLIGHT of many Cavalier exhibitors’ year is the Cavalier Club show and this year was no different with many people travelling from abroad either to exhibit their dogs or to watch the judging and meet up with friends old and new. The entry this year was 300 with another 52 entered not for competition, presumably ...

Cavaliers - week 9Updated : 24/02/2017

THE SCOTTISH Cavalier Club held an open show where Mrs E Glen (Sandbrae) was the judge. Carrying on a successful run at the breed shows lately was Inglis’ Craigowl Out Of Reach who took another BIS, BOS was his sister Craigowl Keep In Touch, BP and also sharing the same sire was Sidgwick’s Salegreen Peony for Pau...

Cavaliers - week 7Updated : 09/02/2017

THE HUMBERSIDE Club’s open show had Nick Gourley (Witchstone) judging the entry. The dog entry sadly looked poor with only 16 males present. It seems to be rather a trend at the moment with many of the breed open shows attracting a much better entry of bitches and yet at the champ shows we’re generally seeing a f...

Cavaliers - week 6Updated : 02/02/2017

I HAVE Cavalier Club’s final list of points winners for 2016 now. The top Cavalier last year was Ch Loranka’s Cupid with Ch Loranka’s Moments Like This in second and Castlewytch Rave On with Russmic third.      That makes Cupid top blen and Moments Like This top tri with Ch Lochbuie Cap...

Cavaliers - week 5Updated : 27/01/2017

MANCHESTER was held on the Friday this year and we had two judges scheduled with an entry of about 140 split fairly evenly between them. Tom Mather judged dogs and Pam Craig the bitches.      Both CC winners were taking their second. From the dog entry Inglis’ Craigowl Out Of Reach and from the bit...

Cavaliers - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

THE EASTERN Society held the first breed open show of the year with 2017 its 40th anniversary year. This being the case, it made the show extra special with goody bags for every exhibitor, the best I’ve seen with beautiful embroidered towels, snoods, dog treats, a bottle of water and, of course, chocolate! There were b...

Cavaliers - week 3Updated : 12/01/2017

BOSTON as usual marked the start of the 2017 championship show calendar. This year had drawn a fabulous entry of 170 dogs for judge Dick Morrison. He made an efficient job of the entry finding his CC winners in Inglis’ Ch Craigowl Out Of Touch and Li’s Ch Avalcier Rouge who were both winning their fourth CCs. ...

NOW THAT the Christmas holidays are over it’s time to get back to normal! With the shorter breed note deadlines and working for 12 hours every day it becomes a little bit harder to get any notes done, not only that but everyone seems too busy to send me information over the festive period so I apologise! To make matter...

Cavaliers - week 52Updated : 19/12/2016

LKA MARKS the end of the championship show year and this year it was Bryan Claydon who had the honour of judging an entry of around 170 dogs. Unusually this year it was four champions who took home the green cards with the CCs going to Sedgbeer’s Ch Castlewytch Rave On with Russmic and Godwin’s Ch Cavaliegh Hones...
