A NOTE this week from Pat Newton, secretary of the ETT (B&T) Club: “I expect by now many of our longer serving members will have heard of the death of Gloria Hoar. I, myself, had never met Gloria, but she has been a patron of our club longer than I have been a member.      “I have had qui...

WONDERFUL news from Holly Nowell and Sarah Crossling, as they and their Lumin (Njabulo Jakayla) have now earned the KC Silver Good Citizen award. Holly and Sarah also came along to the ETT Club and AGM, where they entered – and won – their first ever showing class with Lumin.      I was delig...

I AM SAD to hear that Gloria Hoar, patron of the ETT (B&T) Club died on April 3 at the age of 94 years. She was known for her gentle encouragement of newcomers to our breed, and the dogs which she bred under the affix Caesarea were very influential.      I understand that the funeral is to be family ...

English Toy Terriers - week 14Updated : 29/03/2017

THE SHOWING season is well underway and our breed has had lots of recent success to celebrate.      In Ireland, there were two days of international shows.      At the St Patrick’s Day international show Mr B Blid awarded BGS, BOB and CACIB to McGowan’s Ir Ch Penmarlam Da...

English Toy Terriers - week 11Updated : 09/03/2017

RUTH KITSON tells me that Gloria Hoar (Caesarea) has again been admitted to hospital after hurting her back in a fall at home. Gloria who is patron of our English Toy Terrier (Black and Tan) Club has not been in the best of health for a while, but she does still enjoy hearing about our ETTs. If anyone would like to drop her ...

English Toy Terriers - week 10Updated : 03/03/2017

LAST WEEK I looked at the social side of a visit to Crufts and what people you might meet in and around the ETT ring and benching were looking forward to (you can pick up a copy at the Dog World stand if you wish). This week I feel a brief introduction to English Toy Terriers might be useful for people who are interested in ...

TERRY Burgess would like to take this opportunity to thank those who attended the celebration of the life of his partner Dominic, on Feb 3.

THIS WEEK we have a number of achievements to celebrate in the ETT world.      Carolyn Inch reports “a lovely day at Caledonian open show, no breed class for us but with seven ETTs in NSC open we’ll hopefully get one next time. Very happy with our results though, with the ETTs being well plac...

English Toy Terriers - week 6Updated : 03/02/2017

THERE is lots of news from the ETT community this week, so much that I have taken the decision to hold some back for next week, which I hope I will be forgiven for.      First is the shocking news from Audrey Ensor and Sandy Bennett of the tragic loss of Anya (Royomas Which Is Witch). Sandy reported the ...

HOW DO you do? My name is Dawn Saunders, this week taking up for the first time the great challenge of all breed note writers – to find something of interest to fill the blank page. In that respect I have large boots indeed to fill, since Roy Wilson has long provided us with the most stimulating news and views, which h...

English Toy Terriers - week 3Updated : 13/01/2017

THE NEW year is the traditional time to make new resolutions and changes and it seems to me to be an appropriate time for me to announce that I am handing over responsibility for these breed notes to Dawn Saunders (Appletor ETTs). It is 17 years now since I took over these notes from Ruth Kitson and I hope that rather like t...

English Toy Terriers - week 51Updated : 15/12/2016

LKA WAS buzzing with the usual pre-Christmas bonhomie, with the exchange of cards and personal greetings. Very nice it is too to have this feeling of goodwill at this time of the year at this show which must be the most popular with exhibitors, after Crufts of course.      Julie Sparrow drew an entry o...

English Toy Terriers - week 50Updated : 08/12/2016

ALTHOUGH they sometimes have their good points these social media sites also give opportunities for ill-advised and unchecked stories to be read and clucked over by those who enjoy a bit of tittle-tattle. Normally I refrain from comment in these notes about Facebook writings. However, as many people probably will have read c...

English Toy Terriers - week 49Updated : 01/12/2016

DOMINICK Browne, partner of Terry Burgess in their ‘Dobrugh’ kennel, died in his hospice on Thursday Dec 1 after his long battle with cancer.      Terry himself had also been rushed into hospital and underwent an operation for an aneurism, I am informed, so we wish Terry a speedy recovery a...
