Pugs - week 9Updated : 24/02/2017

I HAVE just had news from two people this week. The first to get in touch was Robert Hitchcock who had a busy weekend with a show on both Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday at St Helens Bobitch Queen Of My Dreams (Phoebe) was awarded both her classes and BP. Lynn George Evans judged the breed. She then won the puppy group and ...

Pugs - week 8Updated : 17/02/2017

AUDREY Burrows was as good as her word when she said that she would write about Audrey Hilder: “I remember Audrey Hilder and her late husband Tom coming to an open show in Leeds and looking for a Pug puppy in1965. At that time we had our first Pug at the show and gave them some names of people who might have puppies. T...

IT IS JUST as well that we have two judges for Crufts with our total entry topping out at 143 dogs and 151 bitches making 294 Pugs and 325 entries. It most certainly will be a busy day for both Kathy Newsome and Penny Macdonald.      Patrick Davis has let me know that he has been told that Audrey Hilder ...

Pugs - week 6Updated : 02/02/2017

ANDREAS Schemel emailed me this morning to tell me that Mary Downie died last night at the care home where she had lived for the last couple of years.      Mary will be remembered by today’s older exhibitors as the great friend of Eike Herold and she ran the household and managed the dogs with a wo...

She will shortly have the official secretary email address but for now she can be contacted on 07709 496933 or gemmahume@hotmail.com. Gemma is also in the process of moving house and will have a new home address in the next couple of...

Pugs - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

THERE is very little news coming my way, so a nice quiet week. What on earth will February be like?      The one piece of information I have is from Scotland, which will have two championship shows this year. The April show will be at the usual venue at Haddington, but the Joint Club’s show will be...

Pugs - week 3Updated : 12/01/2017

BOSTON was a wonderful start to the year for one couple, Sharon Briddon and Rob Fisher, when Ch Briddish Callin Baton Rouge having won his 21st CC was awarded RBIS under Ernie Patterson following his group win under Michael Quinney.      It was an absolute disaster for a shocked Olivia Jameson when her...

Pugs - week 2Updated : 05/01/2017

ROBERT Hitchcock, chairman of the Pug breed council has asked me to publicise the vacancy for the honorary position of secretary of the breed council following the resignation of Liz Woodroffe. The breed council extends its thanks to Liz for all that she has done since taking on this position.      Sta...

Pugs - week 1Updated : 29/12/2016

Pugs IT HAS been a fairly quiet Christmas as far as news goes. Just after I had left for Devon I heard that Philippa Neall had been admitted to the Royal Berkshire Hospital with chest pains. She was kept in for four days and discharged without further procedures, but her main concern was that she had a litter of puppies; ...

Pugs - week 52Updated : 19/12/2016

I WENT to the LKA by myself; a strange feeling to have no chatter in the car last Saturday’s dark and slightly damp morning, but once there, the chatter soon made up for the quiet in the car. I knew that there would be a bit of fun as Aileen Welham had emailed me to say that they had found a large, very large Pug toy d...

Pugs - week 50Updated : 12/12/2016

AFTER a quiet few weeks, I have had quite a lot of emails which is great. The Christmas period is always a strange one and the deadlines brought forward. As usual, I shall get the notes over as and when, but I shall do my best to send things through. For DW, Dec 23 the deadline will be noon on Wednesday Dec 14; for DW, Dec 3...

Pugs - week 49Updated : 01/12/2016

WITH MY PDWRA hat on, I went up to Durham – what a lovely city, and then down to Bowburn for the first ever PDWRA North East Christmas party, which had been organised by our trustee Hazel Pearson with help from Emma-Jane Coutts.      We were very grateful for the help from the Pugility team who e...

Pugs - week 48Updated : 28/11/2016

A WOMAN is calling for dog carers and walkers to be licensed after her Pug died while being looked after by a dog-sitting business. The police deemed it to be a civil case and not something they could take action on.      Dog walkers and sitters are not required to obtain a licence from council, someth...

Pugs - week 47Updated : 17/11/2016

THE MOST extraordinary thing has happened this week. A black Pug called Olive went missing after being spooked by fireworks on Nov 4 while being walked at Wick, near Bristol. In spite of every effort made by so many people, ten days went by without any sign of her with naturally everyone fearing the worst. It is thanks to a ...

Pugs - week 46Updated : 10/11/2016

WE SAW the last of the breed club’s championship shows for the year and we headed to Snaith Sports Hall, which I have to say was rather chilly, to watch John Swinge judge the dogs and Rosemary Alexander judge the bitches.      The warmth of the welcome from Patrick and Janet Davis at the door mad...

Pugs - week 45Updated : 03/11/2016

I THOROUGHLY enjoyed my trip to Stafford last Friday for Midland Counties. We left at the crack of dawn, but it might have been even earlier and fairly whizzed up the motorway to be parked at 7.30am, but we were certainly not going to win a prize for first in the car park. I wonder how early the first person was? One really ...

WHO BETTER to ask to report back on Discover Dogs than Steve Mutum who has been involved in the whole Pug event for year?: “Well, here we are again with another year gone and another Discover Dogs under our belt. This year was my fourth representing the breed and the second year in its new venue at ExCel, London follow...

A NUMBER of people checked into the reception of Dick White Referral Centre to hear the team of neurologists update us in an understandable way on epilepsy and seizures. Between one and two per cent of all dogs and cats are affected. The difference being in epilepsy described as a clinical disorder characterised by recurrent...
