Successful broods by Simon Parsons AS YOU know I’m always pleased to hear of great producing achievements, especially by outstanding brood bitches, so I’m grateful for details of several more since my piece last week.
White Swiss Shepherds by Simon Parsons WITH ALL the discussion about longcoat German Shepherds, it’s easy to forget that there is another breed which is effectively just that, though only in the white colour, another recessive trait that sometimes turns up in ‘normal’ GSD lines.
Kuopio provides overture to the World Show by Andrew Brace Every two years the ‘Sawo shows’ take place in Kuopio in Finland, three international shows held at the vast sports stadium venue.
