Exciting puppies make their mark in Scotland by Andrew Brace The SKC proved a busy show for me with eight breeds with CCs and this year I had booked into the Holiday Inn Express hotel on the showground...
No sign of the gulf narrowing by Sheila Atter THE REPORTS of the Kennel Club’s AGM make interesting reading, and highlight once again the gulf between Clarges Street and the ordinary dog folk who rarely venture into the metropolis.
Less surveys, more innovation by Tim Hutchings I think the world has gone survey crazy. It doesn’t seem possible to do anything these days without getting a follow up phone call, email or text asking ‘how was it for you?’.
Scarborough win, despite the flies! by Wendy Beasley No sooner had I finished my last article about all the Stardell achievements than I heard another rather surprising and heart warming piece of news from Hilary Mercer about her Stardell Indi.
A trio of championship shows by Bronwyn Bartley May is very busy as far as championship shows are concerned with bank holidays on the first and fourth weekends of the month.
A weekend of dancing in Denmark by Richard Curtis I am lucky enough to get a lot of invites to teach abroad but I always have to make a decision as to how many I can fit in as otherwise I could be away somewhere every month.
Floral tastes and weather anxiety by Jane Lilley Just to prove that the art of letter writing is far from dead, I received a beautifully handwritten letter from Patricia Edwards in Hampstead to say that all their puppies have been expert at digging up plants and their latest, Rupert a black...
Will ambiguity leave dogs vulnerable? by Geraldine Cove-Print Browsing the internet I came across a quote attributed to Einstein, it was accompanied with pictures of people engrossed in their mobile devices to the exclusion of all around them.
A great grooming experience in Essex by Eileen Geeson The seminar/workshop with the world renowned Anders Rosell (reported here in an earlier GB) turned out to be a huge success with all the groomers present expressing gratitude for having considerably swelled their knowledge and finishing skills...
Reconciling vets and dog breeders by Steve Dean VETS ARE highly trained in animal health and their professional bodies like to promote vets as leaders in the welfare field as well. In common with all humans, vets will have personal views and perceptions...
Lilian Cheviot’s Rock and Rag portrait by Nick Waters Such is the diversity of the dog in art that over the last four weeks I have featured a gold snuff box with Masonic connections, a beautifully carved walnut table, a piece of jewellery in gold and silver and now a painting by one of this country’s...
As a scientist I am used to using and reading precise language when it comes to expressing not just scientific terminology but ordinary, everyday concepts.
DOG LEAD, POOP BAGS, POLLING CARD… WALKIES Did you all rush down to your polling station yesterday, full of enthusiasm for a bright future for politics in your part of the country? I hear the sound of the wind on the prairie and rolling tumbleweeds trundle by in the eerie silence
FLYING THE BLUE FLAG Obviously there are significant benefits to living down here in Dorset; miles of open heath, stunning countryside, pretty stone villages and, of course, the world famous Jurassic Coast is on our doorstep. However, with every positive comes the...

A personal view of the annual meeting by Simon Parsons AM SURE that many Kennel Club members will have been delighted that this year’s annual meeting was over in less than two hours so that they were able to enjoy their lunches, back at Clarges Street where you could get a hot buffet luncheon for £28...

Core values and commercialism by Sheila Atter So Simon Parsons stuck his head above the parapet and proved that it can be done! Three cheers for people power!
