Breed Notes - 29th Oct 2014
Two judging appointments – Julie Condron is our judge for Crufts 2016 and I am judging Border Union next year. I think I am right when I say that John was judging Border Union two years ago and we had wonderful dry warm weather and thoroughly enjoyed the day (John tells me that I was right about everything but the weather…we were up to our knees in mud, and Craig Hosie had to carry his blonde bitch from the benches to the ring, I think it was worthwhile, though, as she was BoB ). Can we be luckier second time around?
I spent the afternoon making a Guy for bonfire night with two small grandchildren and it caused quite a riot when the dogs caught sight of the finished result sitting in the wheelbarrow. Something different and all hell breaks loose! After a while they plucked up enough courage to investigate closer and then they looked embarrassed and slunk off as if to say we knew it was a dummy all the time.
On this note be aware that some dogs find the bangs and crashes of the 5th November most disturbing, and they should be safely tucked away indoors with the curtains closed and the radio up loud to avoid distress.
I am enjoying looking at the pictures of Freya’s puppies on the internet. Nick is a marvel at capturing the puppies in all sorts of poses, and they all seem fat, round and shiny. He says that Freya is an excellent mother, and if the pictures are anything to go by, he is absolutely right.
In between puppy watching, Nick tells us that he is at the “proof reading “stage for the updated handbook, although he is still short of pictures illustrating various aspects of the breed, especially blacks and blondes. I am getting excited at the prospect of this book, which has had input from many sources.
