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

AS THESE notes will appear between Christmas and new year, I hope that it has been a peaceful and happy time for everyone.      The inevitable has occurred and I have to make my first correction for a win that I have mistakenly credited to the wrong dog. Sincere apologies to Janetta Fairbairn whose blu...

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

WELL, THAT is 2016 dog shows done! It doesn’t seem possible that it is 12 months since the last LKA which I judged but there we were again on Sunday and with close parking for disabled badge holders and friendly NEC staff there was no hassle getting into the halls. As always at the NEC it was nice and warm and the blue...
