Papillons - week 8Updated : 17/02/2017

THE PAPILLON (Butterfly Dog) Club open show held its February open show at St Mary’s Church Hall, in Solihull. It is a pleasant venue just the right size for the show with a stage at the far end of the hall. The venue has good hard standing parking facilities. There is a generous kitchen area with tasty food on supply ...

Papillons - week 6Updated : 02/02/2017

I HAVE a couple of open shows to report on. Anne Griffiths had a successful day at Lichfield with Manawyddan Flora Macdonald who won a super G1 under specialist Helen Wheeler (Ibstock) and group judge Penny Rankine-Parsons.      At Coalville open show Sheila Wilkinson had a lovely day taking a PG3 with L...

MANCHESTER is always a highlight of the year, with the maximum of CCs on offer for the breeds. The committee run the show like clockwork, it is always presented to the highest degree and the BIS ring is a joy to behold. If you feel like a shopping spree there are plenty of trade stands to browse at your leisure. A cold wet m...

Papillons - week 3Updated : 12/01/2017

THE FIRST show of year Boston has held at the East of England Showground, Peterborough. I came across pictures on Boston’s Facebook page of the committee setting up. What a credit the pictures were to the committee, it looked professional and immaculately presented. They should be well proud of themselves. Unfortunatel...

Papillons - week 2Updated : 06/01/2017

WITH THE new year commenced and up and running from the starter blocks the top dog awards for 2016 have been announced. What a good year for our breed with two Papillons appearing in the top ten all breed listing.      Firstly, I would like to say a huge congratulations to Charley Donaldson and Hazel (...

Papillons - week 1Updated : 28/12/2016

WELL, AS another year fades gracefully into the distance a new year brings forth a wealth of hope along the many paths each of us have chosen. My personal wish is for clarity, peace and honesty between nations including ordinary folk, whatever avenue the walk of live takes us on. Perhaps then the joy and happiness of the rea...

Papillons - week 52Updated : 20/12/2016

HAPPY new year everyone whether you reside in the UK or across the globe. My wish to all is that 2017 brings peace, happiness, health and most of all harmony in whatever your life’s involvements may be.      What sad news to hear that Pat Munn of the Ringlands kennel has had a heavy fall at home ...

Papillons - week 51Updated : 13/12/2016

CHRISTMAS is nearly here and Santapap is busy planning his sat nav journey for Christmas Eve. Have you all been good, that is the question to be asked? If you are anything like me you are running around like something possessed on a hamster wheel that is spinning at an alarming rate. So, I think the time has come to breathe,...

Papillons - week 49Updated : 02/12/2016

THE PAPILLON (Butterfly Dog) Club held its last show of the year. It was to be a special day for specialist Lynn George-Evans (Jorgealin) who was judging her first breed show.      I am afraid not a lot of news from the show, as only the results have come through. However, I am sure the club gave its u...

Papillons - week 48Updated : 25/11/2016

A FEW OPEN show results have come in for me to share with you. Up in Bonnie Scotland Jacqueline Hill had a lovely day at Clydebank open show at Lanark winning PG1 with her homebred Caraideas Rhapsody In Blue. This was her first show, so quite a start to this little one’s show career. The judge was Elaine Williams (Sanc...

Papillons - week 47Updated : 18/11/2016

FOR THE forthcoming show it looks like the winter weather is fast approaching, with thermals and hot soup very much on the ‘must do’ list for exhibitors. Wet weather is always a trying time for all of us including the four paws, no matter what the breed. Without a doubt the long coated breeds are always a mega ch...

Papillons - week 46Updated : 11/11/2016

NORTHERN and Eastern Counties PC held its end of the year open show at Carlton Village Hall, Goole after a last minute change because of a double booking for the usual venue of Thorpe Willoughby.      Breed specialist Ann Stevenson (Jemina) had received a lovely entry of 85 dogs making 113 entries; thi...

Papillons - week 45Updated : 07/11/2016

MIDLAND Counties at Stafford was the next show on the calendar, with a bumper entry across the board. Midland always pulls a good entry of exhibits. I suppose it being one of the last remaining championship shows of the year and being located centrally for most exhibitors to travel to, helps considerably.   &nbs...

Papillons - week 43Updated : 20/10/2016

IT WAS a double showing weekend for many Papillon exhibitors at the Royal Welsh Showground at Builth Wells. The South Wales PC held its show here for the second year and was first on the weekend agenda. Not a lot of news has filtered through, but I am sure the club’s committee officers and members gave its usual warm w...

Papillons - week 42Updated : 14/10/2016

APOLOGIES for no breed notes last week, but attentions and energies were focused on the birth of my daughter Tanya’s baby girl Kyla. From Driffield, we made a hasty dash home and then on to the Princess Royal University Hospital in Farnborough, Kent. We arrived close to midnight and Kyla obviously knew she had to wait ...

Papillons - week 40Updated : 29/09/2016

BELFAST was the next port of call for exhibitors who were brave enough for the crossing, which I am led to believe was choppy and exhilarating! Unfortunately not much news has come through other than the results. It was a first time Papillon judging appointment with CCs for Tim Ball. DCC, BOB and G2 was Sean Carroll and Jame...

Papillons - week 39Updated : 23/09/2016

DARLINGTON was glorious wall to wall sunshine all day. There are not many shows we are able to say this, yes, we used the sun umbrella. On the way to Ripon it was a misty fog for most of the way, then, suddenly as if walking through a barrier we came upon blue skies with five planes heading to their port of calls and the lar...

Papillons - week 38Updated : 16/09/2016

PERFECT showing weather day at Richmond set at Loseley Park, near Guildford. If the M25 could be taken out of the equation then it would be easy-peasy. Left the house toy day morning with ample time in hand and jollied down until hitting the M25, then came upon a car park in the middle of the motorway – can’t thi...

Papillons - week 37Updated : 09/09/2016

The first show on the Saturday was the Joint Papillon Club championship show hosted this year by the Papillon (Butterfly  Dog) Club of Scotland. T...
