Spaniels, Clumber - week 25Updated : 16/06/2017

THREE COUNTIES saw Clumbers judged by Linda Thorogood. We all enjoyed a beautiful day weather wise and it was nice to see Debbie Armitage and Sue Fenn ringside. There was a blast from the past in the shape of Christine Blower (Cheannwood) and was showing a Clumber puppy brought in from Europe. Christine and I reckoned that i...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 24Updated : 08/06/2017

IT IS MANY years since we lost our CC allocation at Southern Counties, but Linda Thorogood has always supported the show in NSC. After last week’s good result Linda and Sh Ch Winhampton Over The Yardarm of Harrifield (Bosun) continued their winning ways going BNSC under Pirjo Aaltonen from Finland and then shortlisted ...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 23Updated : 02/06/2017

WE HAVE a lull in CCs for Clumbers in late May and June with no CCs at Bath, Southern Counties, Border Union or Blackpool and with classes at only two of those shows.      Tom Isherwood judged the breed at Bath and it was a great day for Linda Thorogood’s Sh Ch Winhampton Over The Yardarm of Harrif...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 22Updated : 26/05/2017

SOME INTREPID exhibitors moved north of the border for SKC, though it must be said that only three Clumbers came over the border. The rest were residents of bonny Scotland. I must admit that it was a trifle soggy for us on Saturday and we did welcome being indoors rather than in yester years when we were outside with marquee...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 21Updated : 18/05/2017

NO MAJOR shows last week, but following on the thread of the National I was having a look again at the ratio of breed specialists to all-rounders judging our breed at championship shows. Now, we all know that a mix of both is good for the breed, but it is interesting to note that the National (in 12 years from 2007 to 2019) ...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 20Updated : 11/05/2017

FAST ON the tail of WELKS came the National. I must say it was very quiet and not just round our breed ring but the whole show was not what it used to be. Anyway Tom Graham was awarding CCs for the second time in Clumbers.      DCC and BOB went to Linda Thorogood’s Sh Ch Winhampton Over The Yardarm...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 19Updated : 05/05/2017

THE MAIN show season got underway with WELKS, where Russell Mosedale had 19 dogs and 13 bitches to go over. Izzie Hirst will no doubt be still on cloud nine after doing the double with Creeaark Artreyu gaining the DCC and BOB, whilst litter sister Creeaark Fantastica was awarded the BCC and with it her crown – Izzie&rs...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 18Updated : 28/04/2017

THE NEW committee of the CSC held its first meeting last Sunday. Everything seemed to go very well, with everyone getting on and, more importantly, getting through a considerable amount of work. There are a number of events both working and show wise planned and I will give more details later once everything has been confirm...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 17Updated : 24/04/2017

I HAVE two lots of winning ways to report this week. Firstly, Jon Rudbach did rather well at the Welsh Springer Spaniel working test with Micklemess Making Music at Clumbadane (William to his friends) gained a first in the puppy class. William is owned by Jon and his wife Janet.      Next we go over the ...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 16Updated : 13/04/2017

YOU KNOW that feeling when you have put something away in a safe place because you will need it shortly? Well that is what I did with a note that Sue Williams gave me at the open show. It went to a safe place because I intended to include it in my breed notes this week. Yes, you have guessed it! I simply cannot remember wher...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 15Updated : 06/04/2017

WE DO SEEM to be lucky when it comes to the weather for our shows, as we once again had a glorious day so judging was outside. Pam Blay found her BD and BIS in Linda Thorogood’s Sh Ch Winhampton Over The Yardarm of Harrifield. Paul and Hilda Monaghan’s Tweedsmuir Blaze Of Glory was RBD and RBIS.   &nbs...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 14Updated : 30/03/2017

THE MAURSETT household is under siege at the moment – no not from Clumbers, but from two English Setter puppies. I may need therapy before much longer. It is over 20 years since we had setter puppies and I had conveniently forgotten what hooligans they really are.      Sara Kirkman is attempting a ...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 13Updated : 23/03/2017

AS A FOLLOW on from last week’s notes about Crufts, we all had a very nice drink and food following the judging to celebrate Sue Williams turning 70. I understand that the cake was provided by Izzie Hurst and very nice it was too. I must admit Sue certainly wears well and I would not have guessed she was 70.  &nb...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 12Updated : 20/03/2017

I WONDER if the photographs that were taken of our Crufts judge will ever be made public? If so, a certain committee member may be in bother, just don’t ever play poker Eunice. I was not looking forward to the very early start to get to Crufts, but must admit it was good to arrive before the crowds built up and enjoy ...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 11Updated : 10/03/2017

WELL, THAT is it all over for yet another year. I hope you have all recovered from the melee that is Crufts and had an enjoyable day out (these notes are prepared before the big day so I will update the news with next week’s notes).      I can begin with some good news from Marjorie Charlesworth Ir...

Spaniels, Clumber - week 10Updated : 02/03/2017

IT IS HERE again, gosh doesn’t Crufts seem to come around oh so quickly these days. You will all no doubt be giving the finishing touches to your dogs and sorting out what outfit you are going to wear, ready for the big day. Good luck to everyone going and have an enjoyable day.      I had the plea...

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...
