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...

MR SUNSHINE has his hat on this morning here in Cheshire. Looking over the fields to the hills it couldn’t be more beautiful. Dare we dream that the Easter bunny will be hopping its way to a summer of glorious weather? The weather plays such a big influence on the feel good factor, the sunnier days puts a smile on ever...

SO GO ON, be perfectly honest with yourself, who isn’t getting goosebumps? Just one week before, it will be NEC here we come, it’s Crufts showtime.      As I write this storm Doris is having her naughty ways and living up to the reputation of being a pain in the butt; the wind and rain are la...

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.

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...

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.

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,...

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.

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...

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...
