Breed Notes - 17 Mar 2014
Starting with congratulations to team Hovawart in the obreedience at crufts with Maggie, Elaine, Paula, Janet and Georgie with their wonderful team of B/G hovies getting placed second in the competition , what a fantastic achievement and such good publicity for the breed although I did expect to see some coverage of this new event on the TV, but there was none, felt a bit disappointed with this and I would have liked to have seen some more coverage of the obedience competition as well. In saying that It was lovely to see all the dogs in their groups who had got BOB and was thrilled to see the B/G hovie male Lintrollets Alltid Redo from Sweden owned by Mr A Ahmansson representing our breed and what a lovely dog he looked both standing and moving with his striking markings , you can’t help having that feeling of being proud even although you don’t know the dog. There was a good entry for our judge Mr A Wight with the top honours in dogs going to foreign competitors and the top awards in bitches going to the british. Best Bitch was John & Elaines Pines Acorn cdex another beautiful B/G and reserve bitch going to Pines Anket at Quincebois owned by Mr & Mrs Boisseau also B/G. The reserve best dog went to Cody Neskrotna Vasen from Slovakia owned by Mr V Besedic and he was also a B/G. The top awards went to the B/G’s and in open dog 1st to VHC were all foreign. Mr Wrights critique has already been published and what a lovely write up he has given us , you can read the passion he has for the dogs he judges and he does ask one question and that one I have been asked before from another Ch show judge Why is this delightful breed not more popular ? Val Shone phoned to say that She won Veteran with her boy Minches jet of Zwartbos and second in this class went to Minches Chief Riever , well done Val and Min, also at Crufts Val picked up her awards for top Hovie breeder 2013 and top brood bitch 2013, so a very well done. Next week an update on one of our dogs which has been poorly. Any new or views drop me an email.
