Pekingese - week 17Updated : 19/04/2017

EXHIBITORS and the committee of Birmingham Invicta PA all stood to remember Olive Clay in a minute’s silence before the start of their show. Olive will always be remembered in the breed and her passion for this club was second to none. Her son Chris is an official and committee member of this newly formed club and also...

Pekingese - week 14Updated : 29/03/2017

UK TOY was held the day before the start of British Summer Time and our judge Gary Thomas drew an entry of 50 dogs. Carol and Alex Davenport must have been over the moon with their wins with a litter brother and sister, Greyport Epic and Greyport Absolutely Fab both making their debut and winning both MP classes. The bitch G...

THE FOLLOWING has been sent by Jack Mitchell (Micklee): “It is now some years since the Pekingese File of Champions was published, now the breed has the opportunity to look back and see the breed in the early days when Pekingese were top of the pops. This has been made possible in a book entitled The Great Pekingese Ke...

Pekingese - week 12Updated : 17/03/2017

TOY DAY this year at Crufts was on Friday and Pekingese were the first in the ring. I understand that there were a high proportion of overseas exhibitors and from looking at the results they featured in the majority of class placings.      Margaret Mallows had an entry of 95 dogs with 73 present on the d...

Pekingese - week 9Updated : 23/02/2017

A MINUTE’S silence was observed in memory of Joy Montrose (Kybourne) and Jean Smith (Palacegarden) before the judging of the Imperial PA. There was a good atmosphere in the Parish Hall at Culcheth, the committee in the kitchen were busy with their usual bacon butties and also preparing the hot lunches for when we broke...

Pekingese - week 7Updated : 09/02/2017

IT IS WITH great sadness that I report the death of Joy Montrose (Kybourne). Joy has been in Pekingese for many, many years and bred some typy stock. I have known her since I was a very young girl and she has never changed her appearance, always very smart and glamorous with her distinctive blonde hair style. Joy had been su...

Pekingese - week 5Updated : 24/01/2017

BOSTON was the first champ show of 2017 and although our breed didn’t have CCs there were 12 dogs entered for Jane Paradise. BD and BOB was Livanda Cabrero at Clashda, owned by Sheila Lenton, and BB was Wilson’s Corges Golden Amy.      RBD was Murray and Patterson’s Bratilda Starboy and...

Pekingese - week 1Updated : 29/12/2016

THE LONDON Reform PA is holding an open show at New Haw Community Centre. Mike Gadsby is the judge at what I think maybe his first breed club show so I hope the show is well supported as it’s an ideal chance to get your dogs out for training just before Crufts and the start of the 2017 show season.    ...

Pekingese - week 51Updated : 14/12/2016

THE LAST show of 2016 was LKA and Liz Evans (Pendenrah) was our judge this year. Pekes were scheduled first in the ring and from the entry of 46 dogs there were 30 present.      Winning her qualifying CC to be crowned a champion was Klerks Hof Tiara to Pekehuis. Although Tiara has won three CCs already...

Pekingese - week 50Updated : 07/12/2016

THE LAST breed club championship show of 2016 was held at Grenoside Community Centre, Sheffield and was hosted by the Yorkshire and Eastern Counties PC. The club certainly pulled out all the stops to make this their last ever championship show one to remember. This club has always been an extremely hard working club, well su...

Pekingese - week 48Updated : 28/11/2016

THE TWO remaining Scottish Pekingese clubs held back to back championship shows before they amalgamate in 2017 to form the PC of Scotland. I am told the venue Westerwood Hotel and Golf Resort in Cumbernauld was quite big in the fact that the Shih Tzu Club was also able to put on two shows in the ring next to the Pekingese, w...

Pekingese - week 44Updated : 27/10/2016

I KNOW many of you have read the article titled Leading judge calls for end to nepotism which was written by Geoffrey Davies in Dog World several weeks ago and by the huge response which I have received, as well as letters to DW and social media this has certainly brought many to strongly agree with the comments. These probl...

Pekingese - week 41Updated : 06/10/2016

ONE OF the old faces in our breed once said “a judge can either make a dog or break a dog”. There is nothing more frustrating than a dog who will not show, we’ve all experienced this at some time or another. But have you ever experienced a dog being put off showing by a rough heavy handed judge? We seem to ...

Pekingese - week 38Updated : 15/09/2016

JOY MONTROSE is currently in hospital – Tameside General Hospital, Charlesworth Building, ward 31. We haven’t seen Joy at as many shows as we used to, but I am sure a get well card would be most welcome at this difficult time. Please address any correspondence in Joy’s married name, which is Mrs Joyce Bell....

Pekingese - week 36Updated : 02/09/2016

THE BREED was scheduled second in the ring at SKC as Peter Jolley judged two other toy breeds on the day as well as Pekingese. With just 12 in total present (six males and six females) from an entry of 22 the long journey north for three of the principal winners was well worth the while. Two new champions for the breed: Jido...

Pekingese - week 35Updated : 22/08/2016

IT’S ALWAYS nice to go away on holiday and just relax and unwind, this year we went to one of Gary’s favourite places where he loves to play golf, Vilamoura, in Portugal. It’s the first time Charlotte and I have been to Portugal and we loved it. The marina is just out of this world; it’s full of lovel...

JACKIE Petters is very well organised and keen in her role as the secretary of the newly formed London and Reform Pekingese Association, as she sends out schedules for the club’s first championship show. The show is to be held at the New Haw Community Centre, near Addlestone, a venue that has been used now for a number...

Pekingese - week 30Updated : 21/07/2016

I RECEIVED an email from a very excited Paramet Kerdkaew to say he’d won World Winner (BOB) and G4 at the World Show in Russia with Ch Livanda Faberage. This is the second year on a roll that Paramet has done this, last year was in Milan, Italy. Both Paramet and Faberage had to make the long journey from Thailand to Eu...

Pekingese - week 29Updated : 14/07/2016

ARE THE general championship show societies who hold their shows in what we class as the summer months equipped for the 21st century as far as the weather? The SKC have had to change and adapt its shows and now has permanent halls to host its two shows. East of England has an arena to host some of its judging, but surely whe...

Pekingese - week 28Updated : 06/07/2016

AFTER the thunderous storms and torrential rain that London and the nearby counties have endured over the last fortnight, exhibitors at Windsor knew the ground would still be muddy. The benching for the Pekingese was desolate for two reasons, the first being it was thick with mud and the second it was too far away from the r...
