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 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 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...
