Spaniels, Cocker - week 26Updated : 22/06/2017

A MESSAGE from Roy Wheatley to tell me that their Wilmerella Wave Dancer at Melandroy won BVIS at Wombwell open show in an excellent entry of veterans, a splendid achievement.                          &nbs...

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

OUR THIRD outside all-breed championship show of 2017 on Sunday and the third day with no rain – amazing! Three Counties show had a substitute judge for Cockers, albeit announced long before entries closed, as it was to have been the late Denise Fox officiating and how much she would have enjoyed it, I am sure.  ...

Spaniels, Cocker - week 24Updated : 09/06/2017

A REAL MIX of news this week. My thanks to Tricia Bentley who stirred her fellow judges, Derek Shapland and Andrew Jones to write a joint account of their recent trip to the US where they officiated at The English Cocker Spaniel Club of America:      “The ECSCA held this year’s National Speci...

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

FIRSTLY an apology to Michele Lockwood and her black bitch Lujesa Casselina at Chimewood who was BVIS at Coventry Cocker open show – an omission from my notes last week – sorry Michele and ‘Florence’.      Saturday gundog day at Bath. I think everyone agrees that this is one, if n...

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

A SUCCESSFUL show for Rotherham Cocker was held at Grenoside Community Centre where a fantastic entry of 89 dogs awaited judge Jill Kengyellics (Hebdene). BIS was George and Lin Parker’s Weyhill Wish List. RBIS was Roberts and Smith’s Rayol Lady Penny. BOS was Coral Morris’ Riondel Murphy Law. BP was Sarah ...

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

THIS WEEK we heard of the death of Jennifer Lloyd Carey. We were not aware that Jennifer was ill and so this was something of a shock. My thanks to Anne Daniels for letting us know, it has been lovely to read the tributes to Jennifer on social media and a full obituary will be sent to Dog World when complied by those far bet...

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

NO COCKER shows, so a much appreciated weekend off for us! There were, however, successes around the country for Cockers at all breed shows, including Hazel Dewhurst with her young Glowhill Hammer Time at Lapidary, a dark blue bred by Jane Mitchell of course, who was BOB, G1 and BIS at Penzance open show.    ...

Spaniels, Cocker - week 20Updated : 12/05/2017

TWO SHOWS with CCs on offer for Cockers in two days last weekend. We are so lucky that living in the Midlands we rarely travel more than two hours for any show and I take my hat off to some hardy souls who travelled long distances twice to attend the National on Friday and Cheshire Cocker on Sunday. I suspect that the entry ...

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

AS I REPORTED briefly last week, I heard from Sue Cox, that her good friend Paula Hull (Ashenberry Cockers) lost her battle with cancer on Thursday April 27. It was also lovely for Mum to get a call from Paula’s sister Andrea later this week. We had known Paula almost since she started showing and she came to use our d...

Spaniels, Cocker - week 18Updated : 27/04/2017

LAST WEEKEND saw two club shows for Cockers. On Saturday it was the Solid Colours open show where Sue Cox drew an excellent entry of 60 and the special awards classes were judged by Sue Hillier. My thanks to Sue Kettle, secretary, for a fully marked up catalogue.      Absentees were high, which is a sham...

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

THANKS to Sally Ellison from Devon and Cornwall Cocker for not only sending the results from its open show, but a written commentary too. I copy it in full as I think most of us feel empathy with Sally’s views regarding our local clubs at present.      She writes: “The trend for the fall in e...

Spaniels, Cocker - week 17Updated : 21/04/2017

APOLOGIES that these results missed the deadline for last week.      The CSC of Scotland’s 70th anniversary ch sh was judged by Mrs D E Bailey (Daelyb), dogs, and Sarah Amos-Jones (Cassom), bitches.      DCC and BIS was Sue and Annie Kettle’s Lujesa Sky’s The Limit ...

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

A LONG drive but always worth it for the very warm welcome from the secretary Catherine Mason and her team at the CSC of Scotland. The 70th anniversary of the club and a touch of sadness thinking of all the characters who have been the stalwarts in Scotland over the years and now watching us from elsewhere. Like everywhere t...

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

THE FIRST weekend in April means National Terrier and the Midland CSC at Classicway. Very often a clash and the family having to ‘divide and conquer’ to get to both events. This year as Dad was not feeling so good and our wonderful dog sitter’s son had a nasty bout of chicken pox, we gave National Terrier o...

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

FIRST this week Fiona Watson asks me to thank everyone, individuals and clubs, on behalf of Gary Fox and his family, for the donations made following Denise’s death. The collection was donated to Poole Hospital Cancer Fund and amounted to £940, a fitting tribute to a lovely lady.      Saturda...

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

NEWS FROM Mike Wildman of the open show held by North of England CSA. Gill Birkenshaw judged an entry of 48 made from 45 dogs, a good turnout just a week after Crufts. Gill found her BIS in Judith McBride’s Topday Hugo Boss, repeating his BIS win at North Wales open earlier this year. RBIS was Kallispell Beaspoke, bred...

Spaniels, Cocker - week 12Updated : 16/03/2017

TWO DAYS of showing and helping to collect memberships and yearbook ad payments at the Fox Terrier Club breed stand makes me feel that it is a good thing Crufts happens but once a year! However we survived and all enjoyed our time there. I can only wish that the disabled parking was nearer by or at least that the Cocker ring...
