King Charles Spaniels - week 26Updated : 21/06/2017

SADLY, I have to tell you that Tom Boardman has died after a short illness. For the last few weeks of his life Tom was in a nursing home.      The Volney Cavaliers were founded by Tom and his wife, Joyce, and enjoyed much success over many years. In later years Tom decided to show KCS and had quite a lot...

King Charles Spaniels - week 25Updated : 14/06/2017

AT EAST of England, where we have no CCs, Derfel Owen will judge our breed. He has an entry of 22 making 25.      Windsor, regarded by many as the summer Crufts, has only drawn an entry of 38 making 41 for Annette Oliver to judge. I think part of the reason for our low entries this year is that the major...

King Charles Spaniels - week 24Updated : 08/06/2017

JOHN BLEWETT has an entry of 67 making 68 to judge at Blackpool which is a much better number than we have had at some shows this year.      At Southern Counties Ron Stewart was our judge. From a low entry of 39 there were seven absent with the PG classes being the largest at six with one absent for the ...

King Charles Spaniels - week 23Updated : 01/06/2017

BATH WAS our latest show and seemed to be following the pattern of much lower entries that we have had for several shows so far this year. Jeff Horswell was our judge and had an entry of 39 of which six were absent.      There were several classes with only one or two entries which is a shame as we had a...

King Charles Spaniels - week 22Updated : 25/05/2017

THE JOINT Rescue organisation for our three breed clubs is now up and running. If you wish to donate make cheques payable to The King Charles Spaniel Breed Rescue and send to Pam Healy-Gates at The Coach House, Chacombe Priory, Chacombe OX17 2AW, who is the co-ordinator for the KCSC. The Northern Club’s co-ordinator is...

King Charles Spaniels - week 21Updated : 17/05/2017

CLAIRE Melville’s tricolour dog Amantra Chorale (Humphrey) has gained his gold Good Citizens award and her blenheim bitch A Summer Showgirl (Lola) has won the silver award. What a wonderful achievement by both of them. If any other KCS obtain these awards please let me know so I can give them a mention in the notes. &...

King Charles Spaniels - week 20Updated : 11/05/2017

GORDON Meek phoned to tell me that he and Tracy Jackson had been to an 89th birthday celebration for Alan Hall, of the Alansmere Cavalier kennel owned by him and his partner John Evans (I mentioned this kennel in my notes of April 21). There is still one KCS there, a blenheim girl from Amantra, who goes to bed every night wi...

King Charles Spaniels - week 19Updated : 03/05/2017

AT SKC, where we are first in the ring, our judge Brian Rix (Ricksbury) has an entry of 29 making 30.      There are two shows to report on this week. The first was WELKS at Malvern. This year, although it was very cold, judging for us, which started at noon, was able to take place outside. Our judge was...

King Charles Spaniels - week 18Updated : 28/04/2017

WELL DONE to Ros Baker (Cofton) for submitting her critique on the dogs she judged at the Northern’s championship show so promptly. It is already on both the Northern and KCSC websites.      Although I do not use Facebook I was dismayed to hear of the very disparaging remarks made on that medium ab...

King Charles Spaniels - week 17Updated : 20/04/2017

SATURDAY April 15 was a special day for the Northern Club. It was celebrating its 110th year, so it had been decided at a previous committee meeting to make the championship show a special one.      There were free catalogues together with a very nice pen with its own light at one end. Lovely prizes were...

King Charles Spaniels - week 16Updated : 12/04/2017

WELKS has drawn an entry of 53 making 60 for Jennifer Matches (Fochai). We are not on before 11am in hall 5. The reason for the relatively low entry is probably because the KCSC has its championship show at Baginton the next day and people and dogs do not want to travel to venues which are distant from each other two days ru...

King Charles Spaniels - week 15Updated : 05/04/2017

JACKIE Portingale tells me that although Chris Dix was able to get to UK Toy Dog by using a mobility scooter to get around she will not be able to go on the planned trip to the US where she and Rob were due to judge. Apparently the airline is unable to accommodate Chris with her badly broken ankle. What a shame; she must be ...

King Charles Spaniels - week 14Updated : 30/03/2017

THE NORTHERN KCSC has drawn an entry of 103 dogs making 116 for its championship show on April 15. The judge is Ros Baker (Cofton).      Very sadly Valerie Harvey has lost her beautiful tricolour bitch Ch Lankcombe Gabriella at Rivermoor. Gabby was bred by Claire Champion and died in her sleep on March 2...

King Charles Spaniels - week 13Updated : 22/03/2017

I HOPE that by now you will all have had time to read the excellent blog on the DOG WORLD website written by Lee Connor and titled ‘Time to fight back’. Sarah kindly mentioned it on our Facebook pages for me and I phoned as many people as I could to tell them about it.      CRUFFA and the oth...

King Charles Spaniels - week 12Updated : 16/03/2017

THIS YEAR our day at Crufts was the Friday, always a day when travelling home afterwards can be very difficult and I am sure some of you had a very long and tiring journey but I hope you all had an enjoyable time whether you were placed or not.      Nigel Marsh (Tidemill), a very well-known Pug breeder, ...

King Charles Spaniels - week 11Updated : 08/03/2017

THERE is a very good entry of 100 dogs making 106 at UK Toy Dog where Annukka Paloheimo is our judge.      The KCSC held its AGM. Newly elected are Alicia Pennington (president), Peter Portingale (treasurer) and Ruth Mochrie and Rafael Salguero to the committee. GINA MARTIN, 01162 624259, ray_ginamartin...

King Charles Spaniels - week 10Updated : 02/03/2017

COFTON Fairy Tale (Ch Maibee Mr Kipling ex C Fields Of Gold), bred and owned by Ros and Rob Baker has gained her JW, the second bitch in that litter to do so.      The critique for the recent KCSA open show is now on the KCSC website and will be in the dog press. However we continue to wait for the one c...

King Charles Spaniels - week 9Updated : 23/02/2017

THIS WEEK I am going to tell you a true story about a Charlie and a little old lady.      Very recently in the middle of the night Rafael Salguero heard a repeated tapping noise and went to investigate this accompanied by Rivermoor Minstrel (Mallory). When they got to the hall Rafael could see a shadow a...

King Charles Spaniels - week 8Updated : 16/02/2017

THE KCSA open show is our first breed show of 2017. This year it was held at a new, more central venue which I understand was appreciated by most people. The officers and committee all worked very hard to ensure the success of the show and to make certain that everyone enjoyed the day.      There was a g...

King Charles Spaniels - week 7Updated : 09/02/2017

A VERY happy Gill Smith phoned to tell me that the Justacharma and Amantra dogs are flying the flag for our breed at the open shows.      At Rugby Gill and Steve’s J Magic Is Here (Hector) was BOB under John Pritchards (Lillijay) and then went on to win the toy group under John Blewett (Othmese). A...
