Breed Notes - 1 Oct 2014
We have just about come to terms with the fact that Acorn is not in whelp. It takes a little while, but gradually your mind starts thinking .. well, maybe it’s for the best, the hours of daylight are getting shorter, the weather is getting colder, and winter puppies are a lot of hard work. Maybe next spring would be a better time etc. etc. I will try extra hard on Acorn’s training and have my first ever go at WD at Open level. I am thrilled for Nick and Helen that Freya is expecting a litter in about three weeks though, and it did remind me that they too were disappointed last year – it happens to all of us.
Several folk have been poorly this last week, both Anne and Lloyd have both been in hospital again. I am happy to report that Lloyd is now home and improving, but I have spoken to Julie and she tells me that Anne is still undergoing tests in hospital, and it may be some days before she can come home. It doesn’t seem fair that the kidney donor is still not well, but the recipient, Dave, is much improved. We wish them both a speedy recovery.
Final plans are now in place for the annual club show in Oswestry. I think the entries are down a little on previous years, but that only reflects the current trend. It will be very interesting to see what our judge from Germany, Kirsten Wesche, makes of our dogs. She is the person who approves the overseas matings involving German dogs, so will have a considerable knowledge of what goes to make a good Hovawart. The replacement judge for the special lunchtime classes is Joan Golding, well-known to us all as Show Manager. For all of you anxious about such things, with Ann being hors-de-combat, alternative arrangements have been made for the bacon butties (sighs of relief all round!)
The calendars arrived today, and once again, Julie has done a super job with a dozen smashing pictures to see the year out. One new choice this year is a desk-top version, for those of you having an office, or preferring not to put yours up on the wall. They will be available at the show on Sunday, or can be ordered as usual from us here. The price is £7.50 each, +£1 for UK postage, £2 for mailing overseas.
Looking forward to seeing everyone on Sunday…I will report on how it all went next week.
