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...

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...

King Charles Spaniels - week 6Updated : 02/02/2017

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. The judge is Ellen Loynd (Crimbledale). The venue at Southam being much more central will have played a part in boosting the numbers. ...

King Charles Spaniels - week 5Updated : 26/01/2017

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. Send to the relevant treasurer/secretary and make cheques payable to the club and not to an individual.      Paying promptly helps to keep the membership li...

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...

THE TOP KCS stud dog for 2016 in the Dog World/Royal Canin competition is Ch Amantra Regalist. DW/Eden Pet Foods sponsored the top brood bitch for 2016 A Cheryl is our winner. So a double success for Tracy and the Amantra kennel.      To make these wins even more special Regalist and Cheryl are the sir...

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...

King Charles Spaniels - week 52Updated : 19/12/2016

I hope you and your dogs all had a lovely Christmas and would now like to wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous new year with every success with your Charlies in the ring and when breeding from them.      A BB...

King Charles Spaniels - week 51Updated : 13/12/2016

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. I am sure they will all enjoy some turkey etc on Christmas day.      My thanks to Sarah and Rafael who have gi...

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...
