Spaniels, Clumber - week 9Updated : 23/02/2017

BARBARA Weston is short of dogs for the Discover Dogs stand at Crufts on Friday March 10 and Saturday 11. If anyone is able to help contact Barbara on barbaraweston57@gmail.com.      Now on to the update of the last two committee meetings that Eunice King has sent to me. I will not print the content verb...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 8Updated : 17/02/2017

I HAVE received an email from the CSC secretary Eunice King. It is, of course, a busy time of year for breed club secretaries with AGMs looming, along with seminars and committee meetings.      The first thing to remind everyone is that if the club has not received your subscription for renewing your mem...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 7Updated : 10/02/2017

A VERY nice entry awaits CSC secretary Eunice King when she judges Crufts next month – 32 dogs making 38 entries and 32 bitches making 35 entries. We will all have to be up bright and early as judging starts at 8.30am in ring 11.      Continuing with the Crufts theme, I had a letter from Sue Willia...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 6Updated : 03/02/2017

WELL, THE Setter babies have arrived – there were only three, so I must assume that the vet had double vision when she saw six. Perhaps it would make another good advertisement for a well-known firm of opticians! Nevertheless, mum, the two girls and one boy all well and thriving.      I have receiv...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 5Updated : 27/01/2017

THE WEATHER kept fair for Manchester with none of the white stuff falling out of the sky. The judge for Clumbers was Per Iversen, who last judged us at the National in 2014. He had an entry of 12 dogs and 11 bitches to go over. It was a day for both youth and maturity as John and Margaret Newsham’s boy Annbrook Burma S...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

WELL, WE did not seem to get the adverse weather that was forecast, but it is still rather chilly. On the plus side the nights are getting just a tad lighter and the dawn arriving just a little sooner.      Meanwhile, I am just about all prepared for the arrival (hopefully) of our English Setter litter a...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 3Updated : 12/01/2017

WINTER has at last reared its ugly head and as I write the snow and ice are apparently on their way.      The entry for Manchester for Per Iversen is 29 dogs making 27 entries. I think this is about the same as last year. We are first in Ring 7 at 9am so it will be an early start for many of you. &n...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 2Updated : 06/01/2017

NO DOUBT you are all getting your dogs ready for the first championship show of the year which, for Clumber folk, is Manchester. I hope this fine weather holds for you all and that the ‘S’ word is not mentioned on the weather forecast.      There has been a good discussion on social media r...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 1Updated : 28/12/2016

HAPPY new year to one and all. I hope you have all recovered from the inevitable excesses consumed over the festive season. I must admit that we are very good these days and leave much of this to the younger generation.      As I write these notes, it is between Christmas and new year and as I view the...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 52Updated : 20/12/2016

LAST NOTES FOR 2016 so a quick re-run of the year seems to be in order.      As you may recall, during 2015 we had a number of dogs gaining CCs, but not that many gaining their title. However, it has been all change for 2016 with seven new show champions.      Top of the pile w...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 51Updated : 14/12/2016

MAY I WISH all of my readers a very merry Christmas and a happy, prosperous and successful new year.      Our judge at LKA, Ian Layfield, had nine dogs and 15 bitches to go over, finding his DCC and BOB in Sh Ch/Ir/Dutch Ch Wyclydo’s Fast As The Wind at Glenariff. This dog is now owned in partner...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 50Updated : 07/12/2016

CLUMBER Spaniels in the news and pleasingly for all the right reasons.      Barbara Weston tells me that the sun shone down on more than 40 Clumbers as they gathered together in Clumber Park for the second festive walk and fancy dress competition. It is always lovely to hear how our breed can gather to...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 49Updated : 01/12/2016

I AM WRITING these notes early as we have a busy schedule for the next few weeks, so apologies to anyone that sends items in and they are not included this time round.      We will be getting ready for the last championship show of the season, LKA, when these go to print and Ian Layfield has drawn a go...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 48Updated : 25/11/2016

AS I WRITE these notes, I have just realised that a month today we will all be waiting for the big man in red with his sack full of presents to arrive. Where does the time go?      Getting away from the forthcoming festive period, I have a few more judges to give you for next year and also for 2018. Fi...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 47Updated : 17/11/2016

WELL, AS the day dawned it was bright and cold for GBAS. After an early start, we were only an hour away from Edinburgh by the time the sun showed its face. One of the joys of showing two breeds is that one is inevitably first in the ring, while the other – of course – is one of the last to be judged. The Clumber...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 48Updated : 11/11/2016

MORE GOOD news from north of the border as Gordon and Eileen Sutherland went G3 at Waverley Gundog with their Sh Ch Maursett Murtagh of Eilandon (Clyde) – sorry, I do not have a note of the names of the judges.      As I write, the remnants of the first snow of this winter is slowly melting away....

Spaniels, Clumber - week 45Updated : 03/11/2016

THERE WAS some good news about a great day out for Gordon and Eileen Sutherland with their Sh Ch Maursett Murtagh of Eilandon (Clyde). Clyde went BOB and G1 under Seonaid McAndrew, before going on to take the RBIS under Christine Smith at Hamilton open show.      Meanwhile, I have news from Barbara Wes...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 44Updated : 28/10/2016

SOME NEWS ABOUT judges for championship shows (and the two Clumber Spaniel Club shows) in 2017.      The following has been published: Per Iversen (Manchester), Eunice King (Crufts), Russell Mosedale (WELKS), Tom Graham (the National), Jeff Horswell (SKC), Linda Thorogood (Three Counties), Mr B Bosch (...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 43Updated : 20/10/2016

FIRST, some happy news as James and Kelly Jefferies welcomed Arthur James into their family on Oct 7, weighing in at 8lb 11oz. I am not sure where Kelly was hiding Arthur as she was very neat while carrying him. Sister Zennor looks to be very happy with her new brother and I understand Arthur has already attended his first d...
