Japanese Chins - week 17Updated : 21/04/2017

I HOPE you have all enjoyed your somewhat chilly Easter break, and of course right on queue the first day back to work and the sun is cracking the flags.      As soon as the weather improves we all seem to start going crazy doing jobs in the garden and bathing dogs. When I appear with bath towels the dog...

Japanese Chin - week 15Updated : 06/04/2017

WE NOW have a couple of weeks championship show free, although the open shows are coming thick and fast. Time to catch up on a few jobs, the garden is starting to go into overdrive, the dogs are moulting and all need bathing as I find this is the quickest way of getting rid of all that loose hair that seems to roll around th...

Japanese Chin - week 14Updated : 30/03/2017

FOR TOY dog people I always feel that there are three shows in the year that you just have to attend. The first one being Crufts, the one we all love to hate; UK Toydog and of course your clubs show. Last weekend was UK Toy. I always look forward to this show, it has such a friendly atmosphere. It always seems to be adding s...

Japanese Chin - week 12Updated : 16/03/2017

ONCE AGAIN that’s Crufts over for another year. Funny, everyone you talk to says ‘I hate Crufts’, but you just have to be there. It’s great to catch up with overseas visitors who you haven’t seen since last year. I always feel guilty moaning about the travelling when you realise just how much ef...

Japanese Chin - week 11Updated : 08/03/2017

LAST FRIDAY afternoon, right on cue the rain came as we had a show the next day, it was the JCC open show. All night it was a juggling act trying to keep the bathed dogs clean.      Saturday morning came and it was not raining which was a great start to the day. I got the dogs loaded up and off we went. ...

Japanese Chin - week 10Updated : 02/03/2017

BACK IN February it was the Westminster Kennel Club show in New York. In the Chins there were seven dogs all champions or grand champions. BOB was Scott Toney’s Gr Ch Ch Rakuchin Cashmoor Midwood bred by Sue Hann and Tina Pearce.      Well I hope you all managed to get through Storm Doris without t...

Japanese Chin - week 8Updated : 16/02/2017

FROM THE number of pictures that keep going up on Facebook I think it is going to be a bumper year for new puppies to come out into the show world. It is always a worry selling a puppy for show and hoping that it comes up to expectations in the show ring. It is only ever possible to say that it has show potential, but that t...

Japanese Chin - week 7Updated : 09/02/2017

IT WAS a very beautiful, if a very sad day last Friday. Lynn Crane and I and many, many more people attended the service for the celebration of Dominic Browne’s life. It was held at Terry and Dominic’s home in Prescott.      A very beautifully dressed marquee had been put up in the garden, du...

Japanese Chin - week 6Updated : 02/02/2017

THE DREARY wet, mucky weather just keeps on coming, and so do all those mucky paws. I never seem to do anything else but have a mop in my hand doing the floors. So I always like to see something that will make me laugh and cheer me up, and I have to that this is cheating somewhat but I just had to include a post in my notes,...

Japanese Chin - week 5Updated : 27/01/2017

WE HAVE just had Manchester. This is the last year the Chins will be without CCs. The entries here have always been good so I would imagine that from now on they should be excellent. This was the last qualifying show for Crufts, so I hope everyone managed to get through.      The layout of the show I hav...

Japanese Chin - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

THE WEATHER we are having at the moment is certainly not good if you have white, longhaired dogs. This never ending drizzle, making everywhere damp and dirty is a nightmare. The dogs are just not getting outside to play and run off some of their excess energy, instead it is mad sessions in the house and getting up to all sor...

Japanese Chin - week 3Updated : 11/01/2017

THE CHAMPIONSHIP show season got under way last weekend with Boston. It is the first time I have been to this show as this is quite a trip for me and was subject to the weather being kind, bearing in mind that in January anything could be happening. Seeing the weather report tonight we have been so lucky as it would seem tha...

Japanese Chins - week 2Updated : 04/01/2017

HAPPY new year everybody – good luck and best wishes and hopefully it will be a good one.      2016 has been quite a momentous year in Japanese Chins with the formation of two new clubs. This is the first time in over a hundred years that there has been more than one club. Both new clubs have had...

Japanese Chin - week 52Updated : 19/12/2016

WELL THAT’S it now the last championship show of the year has been and gone so all over bar the shouting now.      The journey at this time of the year is all done in the dark, just arriving at the venue as it becomes daylight and then leaving just as it is going dark again. The journey home was ...

Japanese Chin - week 50Updated : 07/12/2016

LAST SUNDAY it was the turn of the Northern JCC to hold its first limit show. It was a really good day and the show went extremely well, but at the same time it was also tinged with a little sadness. Our judge for the day Dominic Browne although diagnosed with terminal cancer, very suddenly died. This was quite a shock and n...

Japanese Chin - week 49Updated : 01/12/2016

ON DEC 4 it will be the Northern JCC’s first limit show. We have a super entry of 100, which is amazing. Cream teas have been booked and hopefully everything is now in order for the day. So it is a major blow and a massive shock that our judge for the day Dominic Browne has been taken very seriously ill and is currentl...

Japanese Chin - week 47Updated : 17/11/2016

DON’T YOU just hate this time of the year? Rain, rain and more rain, so many mucky paws coming in and out, and dog bedding that needs changing by the minute. The dogs have been good for a while, but now we have so much pent up energy that really needs to be run off, and guess what? It’s raining again.  &n...

Japanese Chin - week 46Updated : 11/11/2016

I BELIEVE the entries for the Northern JCC are looking very good. I will have entry details for you soon. This weekend sees the Southern JCC having its first show with a bumper entry. It’s so nice to see that Chin exhibitors are supporting the breed's two new clubs. The breed is numerically big enough to support al...

Japanese Chin - week 45Updated : 03/11/2016

MIDLAND Counties was the first inside show for the winter season at Stafford. Always a well attended venue, with all facilities being easy access, you don’t have far to walk with your dogs and equipment. As the day got underway the sun came out and it was a lovely mild day.      Our judge for the...

Japanese Chin - week 44Updated : 27/10/2016

AS I DIDN’T have all the results from the club championship show last week I have left it to this week to post them. Our judge Tony Allcock had an entry 110 Chins.      BIS was Choya Masuyo, owned by Rhonda Banks, and RBIS went to Javalcy Bugsy Malone, owned by Ms S Rhodes and Mr and Mrs R and M ...
