Sloughis - week 21Updated : 17/05/2017

THE MAIN recent event was the National. We do seem to have rather drawn the short straw this year with shows being on weekdays. The main centre stage was the charismatic Peter Jolley who was so lovely with both the dogs and the exhibitors. Kath’s Winkle was having one of her anti-men days and was being particularly unh...

KATH CLARK tells me that demand for the year book continues. She has been sending them all over the globe thanks to the wonder that is Facebook.      Closer to home, she received a card form Margaret and Andrew saying how much they had enjoyed reading it. It is nice to get a thanks from folks but without...

Sloughis - week 13Updated : 22/03/2017

GREETINGS one and all, here with the results for Crufts. For once we were in the ring in a relatively reasonable time. In fact we were finished before the Ibizans even got going which must be a first for us! Anyway, the judge was Dianna Spavin and she had an entry of 11 although the dog from Czech was missing. It was lovely ...

Sloughis - week 10Updated : 02/03/2017

GREETINGS one and all, big news this week! Beloved secretary Kath Clark has been very busy. The all new website has just been published. There are one or two teething issues with Google as on some people’s it isn’t showing up (that would be me) where on others it is. She has registered the site with Google and ho...

Sloughis - week 8Updated : 15/02/2017

A FEW FORTHCOMING shows for us: Hound Association open show, the judge is Steph Marston-Pollock who is on our B list; the National, judge Peter Jolley who isn’t on our list, but he should be as I know he has judged a club show in the past; SKC (May), L Pinto Teixeira (not listed). I showed my DeeDee (Dancing Dafina at ...

Sloughis - week 4Updated : 18/01/2017

WELL, THE new year is off to a flying start.

HAPPY new year.      The year ended well in the Netherlands. Lisa and Carol were entered at the Holland Cup under Panos Demetriou.

Sloughis - week 47Updated : 21/11/2016

DISCOVER Dogs was, again, a great success. I don’t know where we would be without Carol and Barrie; they really are the DD stalwarts. This year, along with me on the Saturday and Sharon who did the Sunday morning, so they could have a lie in!      Sloughis present were my Tara, Ziva and Harley. T...

Sloughis - week 43Updated : 21/10/2016

CAROL and Barrie were showing Sahsheer Shiana Khali (Tara) at the Wallonia show in France. The judge was a M Miglietta. She thought enough of Tara to give her the CAC, CACIB and BOB. Then Carol and Barrie then had a long wait in a very cold hall for the group where they were not even given a second glance unfortunately! But ...

NEWS FROM Darlington, the last ch show with classes for us, and it was also the decider for top Sloughi as it has been a closely fought contest this year.

Sloughis - week 39Updated : 23/09/2016

WELL IT’S very mixed news this week, some good, but also some very sad news. This week has not been kind to two of our Sloughi owners.      Firstly, Margaret and Keith Emmins had to say farewell to Sally. Sally came through RSPCA rescue. Margaret wrote an article for the 2013 yearbook, which is r...

Sloughis - week 38Updated : 15/09/2016

Sloughis AFTER all the fun of the Hound Association, the SC committee has had a conflab and the result is a letter sent via email to the powers that be at Hound Association. We are all hoping that we will be able to move on from this year’s fiasco and maybe we can do our club show in the morning next year.  ...

Sloughis - week 34Updated : 19/08/2016

WELL, THAT was interesting to say the least. I dragged over-height daughter with me to stay overnight before the Houndshow and our breed show. This is the first time we have had a standalone show for many years. We all got there in good time to settle ourselves around our allocated ring, set up our raffle table and we were g...

AT EAST of England there was success for Liz in AVNSC flying the Sloughi flag with Woodi (Lizanthe Al Zakuri) who won OD under Liz Cartledge. However, Liz said that the weather turned really nasty with some flooding in the marquees so they had to move inside. The building was very noisy and cramped with a small ring surround...

BARRIE Godfrey and Michael Atkinson went to Newmarket with Sahsheer Ishara at Longhedge where they won their class then went on to BOB.

Sloughis - week 26Updated : 21/06/2016

WELL GUYS our beloved secretary is now back on home soil after her adventures in the States, though being there didn’t stop her getting dog gossip. She writes: “Saw lots of dogs. It seems a much more dog friendly country than the UK, especially away from the big cities, although Chicago had lots of people walking...
