Breed Notes - 20 Jan 2014
Well Manchester CH show was held this weekend and Hovawarts were scheduled on Saturday with three classes and an entry of two with one absentee for our judge Mr Andrew Brace who awarded the BOB to Ann Travis with her puppy, Annvad Lady Grizelda who also won the puppy bitch class in rare breeds under Mr David Guy. I have not managed to catch up with Ann yet , but well done and it would have been a great experience for Grizelda. Schedules seem to be coming out fast and the following judges have been named for judging hovawarts, CRUFTS, Mr A Wight, Welsh Working & Pastoral CH show, Mr A Rees, SKC CH Show, Mrs M Hathaway, Birmingham National CH show, Mr Raymond Soulat and Border Union Ms J Goldin, all are scheduling 3 classes apart from crufts. Once I know of the other judges , I will let you know. I spoke to Julie this weekend and she has reminded me to ask you with crufts coming up, we will be looking for volunteers with their dogs to help man the Discover dogs stand, it is important that you have a sound dog who will be able to take all the attention that is thrown to them, you will be given passes etc and if you feel that you can give some time for a morning or afternoon then please get in touch with Julie on 01253 777186. Julie has also asked me to remind you that she will be starting the year book soon , so if you would like to place an advertisement please get in touch . A special thanks goes to Ann Marriott who had sent an email to last weeks problem re Caileag that I had discussed in the breed notes with regards to the symptoms that she had experienced post eating her dinner. Ann’s older Hovie girl had experienced alot of gurgling noises which would distress her with the dog pacing the house also. Ann had recommended Dodson & Horrells sensitive herb mix which she uses for funny tummies and also her vet had recommended a probiotic yoghurt drink such as Yakult to be given daily and Ann’s dogs have not looked back. What also was interesting was she also gives her dogs New Zealand Manuka Honey through her booklet by Barbara Swan, Herbal Remedies who recommends half a teaspoon three times a day when they show symptoms of digestive problems, however unable to use this in diabetic dogs. I will certainly try this and will let you know how I get on. Any news or views please let me know.
