Japanese Chin - week 26Updated : 22/06/2017

DURING the heat wave last weekend it was the turn of Border Union to hold its show. I didn’t make it this year but I believe it was very hot indeed. Hope you were all using bucketfuls of factor 50. It will not be until 2019 that this show gets CCs for Chins so the judge Mea Kendall without CCs had a very good entry of ...

Japanese Chin - week 25Updated : 15/06/2017

WELL, THAT was a stroke of luck – Three Counties toy day did eventually turn out to be quite a nice day in the end, but it did fall between two really quite wet ones. On the day we were second in the ring after the Charlies, which made it a nice relaxed start with time for a cup of tea, most importantly.   &...

Japanese Chins - week 24Updated : 07/06/2017

ANOTHER Friday, another early start, 4.45am to be exact. As I set off for Southern Counties, the heavens have opened. Twenty minutes into the journey I pulled off the motorway at Haydock Island to pick up a friend who was judging at the show; well it was all happening there – a crashed car and lots of police everywhere...

Japanese Chin - week 23Updated : 31/05/2017

WE SEEM to have a run of shows on a Friday coming up now. Depending on how far away you live it can mean a really early start to get there and also beat the traffic. Even when you get on the motorway in the early hours it can be busy and of course the never ending road works. I managed to get to Bath just after 8am, and even...

Japanese Chin - week 22Updated : 26/05/2017

IT WAS the turn of Merseyside Toy Dog Club to hold its show on Sunday. We had a good entry of 18 Chins for the judge Sue Hann. She had certainly put the mileage in to come to the show. Having shown her own dogs at SKC on the Friday, she left her caravan there while she travelled home on the Saturday, came across to us on the...

Japanese Chin - week 21Updated : 18/05/2017

I’M SORRY last week’s notes have been delayed. I had an emergency with one of my dogs and as I sure you will understand that everything else takes a back seat. Well thankfully all is well now and the dog is doing fine and will make a complete recovery. I wish I could say the same for my bank account, I don’...

Japanese Chin - week 20Updated : 15/05/2017

WELL, WOULD you believe it, last week we spent the whole of the afternoon outside in the freezing cold for the judging and this week we are all inside and the sun was cracking the flags outside on Saturday. The weather for the last couple of weeks has been brilliant, certainly here in the North West, I’m just hoping th...

Japanese Chin - week 19Updated : 04/05/2017

ON SATURDAY it was WELKS championship show, the first of the two shows at Malvern. It was nice to travel at the weekend when the traffic was a bit quieter. The weather for the journey was good, but oh those road works seem never ending.      We were second in the ring, so it was no mad panic when we arri...

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...
