Breed Notes - 29 Sep 2014
Starting this week with news that Val & Steve Shone went to the IHF show in Germany and had a lovely time with their boy Minches Jet of Zwartbos getting third in veteran dog which is a great achievement . This being their first time showing the dogs at the IHF and having a holiday at the same time. Gill Stockton was also there representing Great Britain at the conference so we will find out soon what happened and any breed information that we need to know and like Val & Steve , Gill made it a holiday as well and took the opportunity to go to Holland and attend the Dutch Hovawart show, so I am looking forward to catching up and hoping that she has taken photos of the German and Dutch dogs and hopefully a photocopy of the catalogue with results. As you read this all Hovawart enthusiasts will be meeting at the agricultural show ground in Oswestry in Shropshire for our annual club show with good citzens testing and obedience along with our German breed specialist taking centre stage . I look forward to meeting new owners at the show as well as catching up with friends. I do hope the weather will be kind to us. The only show to report on is Darlington which seen myself judging seven dogs with 2 absentees with my BD & BOB going to Julie Condron’s Zwartbos Carisbrooke with reserve dog going to Hightimbers Sixpence owned by Mr & Mrs Barnett with BB going to Liz & Lynn’s Driftingsky Mist with reserve and BV going to Tyhelva Super summer of Driftingsky and they also took BP with Driftingsky Alize . What was lovely to see was three puppy bitches entered with two new owners showing for the first time. I hope they enjoyed their experience and will continue to show. Spoke to Julie who was telling me she had made a bench mat with a Chesapeake Bay Retriever on it and it was sent over to America to the breed show where it raised 180 dollars for the breed club. The interest was great and I believe the lady who purchased it is going to hang it on her wall at home.
