French Bulldogs - week 8Updated : 16/02/2017

FRENCHIES have certainly hit the headlines in the newspapers, being tipped to take over the number one spot as the nation’s favourite dog breed. I sincerely hope that will not happen.      I was asked for my views by a number of daily newspapers and all in all, they did report what I had said fairl...

I HAVE to thank Penny for mentioning the show I am judging in March, but need to point out I am a breed specialist, having judged the breed since I passed the breed specific seminar back in 2013 and have judged over 90 dogs to date entitling me to be on the club’s B lists, hence being offered the breed club show and al...

French Bulldogs - week 6Updated : 02/02/2017

I FINALLY have a some spare minutes to write a few notes so that you do not forget that I exist, just joking, but life has been so hectic and demanding this past month, that one has to prioritise.

I’D ALREADY sent my notes for last week’s paper when I heard from Carole Ash with news of young Kooba’s return to the show ring, and a fabulous return he had.

WHAT A fast and furious debate sparked off on Facebook after an exhibitor of another breed took unauthorised photographs of some of the French Bulldogs who were being exhibited at LKA and promptly posted them to a group who appear to take great pleasure in vilifying our breed among others. This group seemingly never accept t...

French Bulldogs - week 51Updated : 13/12/2016

I WANT to start this week’s notes sending our condolences to Pat Fryer who lost her ‘sweetheart’ Tony on Saturday after a long and well battled illness. Pat and Tony Fryer were always either ringside or in the ring with their Frenchies with Tony forever making people laugh or cringe at his jokes. Actually t...
