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...

THE ONLY Charlie news I have this week is from John Blewett, secretary of the KCSA, who tells me that they have an excellent entry of 86 dogs making 100 entries for their open show on Feb 12.

MANCHESTER, the first show of the season where we have CCs, had breed specialist Gill Smith (Justacharma) as our judge. I am told that Gill was looking very smart and judged her entry of 70 with ten absent in good time. Gill tells me that she had two excellent stewards to help her.      Gill has already ...

BY NOW you should have paid your 2017 membership subscriptions to our three clubs. If you haven’t already done this do so as soon as possible.

King Charles Spaniels - week 3Updated : 11/01/2017

AT MANCHESTER Gill Smith (Justacharma) has a very good entry of 71 making 70. KCS are second in the ring after Cavalier bitches.      It was a sad start to 2017 for Gill and Steve Smith when they lost their blenheim dog Ch Justacharma He Is Our Magic (Alfie). He was 11 years old and had won four CCs. T...

King Charles Spaniels - week 1Updated : 30/12/2016

AT LKA our judging was very late in the day and had to take place in a ring where proceedings had finished. This meant that our BOB had to rush for the group ring, so no photographs were taken of her on the day.  However, Caroline has now sent Sarah a picture of Multi Ch Fleur De Lys De Melcourt, which has been put on t...

CHRISTMAS is here and I would like to wish you all a very happy festive season with time to spend with family and friends and very importantly to make a big fuss of our four legged companions.

King Charles Spaniels - week 50Updated : 07/12/2016

STEPHEN Goodwin (Lanola) will judge the toy group at Driffield in 2017.      The Kennel Club has a new online site ‘Find a Show’ where you can access the shows including the open ones for about three months ahead. This could be very useful.      I have the dates for o...

THE LAST of our club shows this year, the KCSA championship, took place at Chieveley Village Hall.      Although I was not present I have been told what a lovely show it was by Sarah, Stephen and Rafael.

King Charles Spaniels - week 45Updated : 03/11/2016

OUR BREED was represented at Discover Dogs by Julia Pennington and her husband Tom Ashburn together with some of the Tudorhurst dogs. I am sure that Tom will have had his tricolour Chacombe What’s Wanted there as William is such a friendly little dog who loves a fuss and so would have been ideal. At the KCSC shows he a...

King Charles Spaniels - week 44Updated : 27/10/2016

AT THE time of writing these notes there is an entry of 107 for the KCSA championship show on Nov 6 to be judged by Dr Andreas Schemel. This may change slightly as there could still be on line entries in the printer’s system.      The latest KC Journal lists some more judges for you to add to you...

King Charles Spaniels - week 43Updated : 19/10/2016

WELL DONE to Geoffrey Davies for his excellent letter in DW, Oct 7. He has said what many of us have been thinking for a long time. There has always been nepotism and I doubt it will ever be entirely eradicated. However, a good start could be made by the Kennel Club chairman, Simon Luxmoore, looking into the KC Board (Genera...
