Breed Notes - 21 November 2021
Sadly, the breed was not represented at the KC Discover Dogs exhibition in London this weekend. I think there was a certain reluctance for people to risk Covid infection, especially as there is inevitably close contact with a lot of strangers at a show like this. I have to say, too, that the venue isn’t the most accessible, being in the east of the city. It is understandable that an voluntary organisation like the Hovawart Club of Great Britain is unprepared to ask its members to put themselves in harm’s way, although plans are in hand for the stand to be manned at Crufts next year. I just hope that the KC will bear in mind the need for reasonable space in case the virus continues to be virulent.

Why is it that when you put something away in a safe place, it is so hard to find when you need it again? Maggie’s puppies are due any minute, and I offered her the loan of our electric heated pad, which is ideal for the puppy box if you need to have the pups on mother in a rota, and Cello is looking as though she might have enough to warrant that method of management, but could I find where I’d put it after Kibble’s litter back in the spring? Happily, the answer came to me in the night, so I was in time to get it over to her before the big event.

One of the things that we have lost as a result of the digital and technological revolution is the reliance on “physical” photographs. I know that we have lots of pictures available now at the touch of a button, but there is nothing quite like holding a piece of paper with images of old canine friends, now long gone, but never forgotten. I have been doing a bit of clearing out today, and the process has taken so much longer than expected because I kept coming across wonderful photos of Jordis and Arpad in the quarantine kennels, the Grabow family from Germany who were so kind to us in allowing us to use their lovely boy Arek with our dear Chelsea to gives us those wonderful “car” puppies, including our dear Mercedes….I could go on and on, and I know sitting at the computer scrolling down, or flipping pages on my I-phone just isn’t the same. I had an amazing afternoon !!!
