English Toy Terriers - week 8Updated : 17/02/2017

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 ...

English Toy Terriers - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

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...

THOSE of us who do not follow Facebook, or even not have internet access, may be unaware of the current situation in the club’s committee.

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...

English Toy Terriers - week 46Updated : 09/11/2016

THE ETT (B&T) Club championship show was held at our new venue of St Peter’s Hall, Balsall Common, and the change worked out very well indeed as there seemed to be a lot more room both for the ring and seating.      Anyway, everyone enjoyed their day and the committee and some non-committee m...

English Toy Terriers - week 44Updated : 28/10/2016

PAT NEWTON, club secretary, reports that they had a terrific weekend at Discover Dogs and says: “We were extremely busy on both days, but the underlying theme was that it was quite apparent that the majority of the public weren’t aware of our glorious breed. We had great pleasure in explaining our breed with the ...

English Toy Terriers - week 42Updated : 14/10/2016

IT IS ALWAYS encouraging for new owners of our breed when they have an early success in the show ring. Sherean Omara Elgey must have been delighted to have won the AV toy puppy class, first in the AV Margaret Stottow puppy stakes and finished as BPIS under Margaret Stottow with her ten month old Twowayshouse Tip Top Toyah at...

English Toy Terriers - week 40Updated : 30/09/2016

A NAG THIS week about getting items in early for the club’s Thumbprints magazine: Time flies by so fast and here we are into October already! It’s easy enough to think ‘I’ll do it later’, but with the Christmas holiday period approaching fast we all get too busy to want to bother – so why ...

English Toy Terriers - week 39Updated : 23/09/2016

DARLINGTON certainly gave a big boost to our breed as we won both the toy group and toy puppy group! Liz Cartledge was judging our breed once again with an entry of 30 less three absent and gave the Witchstone kennel a day to remember by giving them a ‘double’. DCC going to W Talk Of The Town with Tettoy, finishi...

English Toy Terriers - week 35Updated : 26/08/2016

TERRI Hague’s long battle with cancer has finally ended with her death on Friday Aug 19. There was no funeral as it was her final request that she leave this world with only the bare statutory arrangements being carried out; and for that reason even her close friends were not present as a mark of respect to her wishes....
