Breed Notes - 10 Feb 2014
Well crufts entries have been published with an entry of 19 dogs and 18 bitches giving an entry of 37 with some dogs and bitches being in more than one class which gives a total entry of 43 for our judge Mr Wight. I went in for my Knee surgery two weeks ago and I am recovering well, so there is a possibility that I might come down for Working day on the Thursday and then travel back on the Friday. It has been four years since I was last there, so the need to go and watch some judging, catch up with friends and do some doggy shopping and with the fact I haven’t entered my girl will allow me to watch events in the main arena which I haven’t been able to do in the past. I don’t know if any of you are following the dog diaries in your dog magazine and have recognised our ex chairperson Gill Green who has a handsome blonde hovawart and a beautiful Leonberger , the latest edition shows Saffron the hovie having an elderly walk in the garden doing some sent work which hovies just love and the determination that hovies have even into old age, they just want to please and be successful in the task , it’s wonderful to see, so well done Gill, Saffron and Almond , I am looking forward to reading more. Last week I watched the programme on channel 5 The truth about your dogs food, it was really interesting and it did certainly give you food for thought ! and as I have just started a course on canine behaviour this topic re diet and how it can affect the way your dog behaves is very interesting and one that will require further in depth study . It is worth watching it on catch up if you can. Another two rare breeds have now been given championship status from 2015 the Havanese and the Bracco Italiano with another three breeds under consideration that being the Cesky Terrier, Spanish Water dog and the Tibetan Mastiff, this is wonderful news for the breeds involved and very exciting for those breeds whom the kennel club is considering. Well done to the breeds involved.
