WELL, THE sun brollies are in use, ice cream a plenty and it has all lasted more than 24 hours. Now that is something to go on the memory board and rejoice.

THREE Counties at the Malvern showground is next on the agenda for the breed notes. We were not at the show this year and unfortunately no snippets have come through except for the results. As far as I am aware the weather was dry, so hopefully the rings outside could be in use – much better surroundings to spend your ...

Papillons - week 24Updated : 09/06/2017

SOUTHERN Counties at Thatcham, near Newbury, a show that you need to put best foot forward and feet up at the end of the day. If your ring is situated at the wrong end of the never ending marquee, rings numbered 1-30, then it is a long marathon to locate certain amenities. Unfortunately for Paps they drew the short straw wit...

THE NATIONAL is a show that year after year pulls out all the stops to ensure the exhibitors have an organised well constructed day. I am sure this year was no different and we were disappointed not to have been unable to attend. Unfortunately no snippets of the show have come through other than the principal winners.  ...

IT WAS a lovely, dry day at WELKS situated at the Three Counties Showground, Malvern. Compliments must be extended to the WELKS committee on the condition of the outside rings, which looked fabulous.

THERE are times in life that we all need to know that our friends are standing by to give support at our darkest times, whether it be a reassuring word of love and understanding, or maybe a simple hug and smile to help face the challenges life throws at us. These scenarios, whatever the circumstances sap the energy from the ...

OUR HEARTS go out to all involved in the Westminster tragedy, families never to be the same again. At times like this your heart weighs heavy with an emptiness of despair. The world holding claim to callous destruction and famine has to change and unite, just alone for the reason of the joy of living.    &nbs...

Papillons - week 12Updated : 17/03/2017

MR SUNSHINE has his hat on this morning here in Cheshire. Looking over the fields to the hills it couldn’t be more beautiful.

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.

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.
