HOVAWART BREED NOTES – PUPPIES 5/5/15

It’s been all about puppies this week. Maggie collected her bitch puppy (Echo) and Paula collected her dog puppy (Rioja) and Janet is getting Jedi, also a dog puppy, later on this week. They are all so thrilled and have been coping with disturbed nights, and very busy days as they begin crate training. This was the AI frozen semen litter by Maggie’s DJ, brought about by clever Vet.

I’m looking forward to seeing them all at the club show in October. A big puppy class will be quite a sight, with breeders Caron and John keeping a bitch puppy as well, called Truffle. All the puppies are black and gold, although their mother is blonde.
Maggie has won her way out of A in Obedience recently with her home bred Dollar, so now has mother Gracie and her daughter working in B.I wonder if they will reach C like Maggie did with her very first Hovawart, Tia. Her two new bionic knees have certainly made a difference in the fast pace heelwork!
We had the bill for Dublin’s BVA hip and elbow x-Ray plus the haematology laboratory fee for the comprehensive Thyroid test amounting to £364.10, which I believe compares favourably with fees in some other parts of the country, but is still not an inconsiderable sum, and doesn’t really give encouragement to those with puppies who have no intention of breeding. I do hope that future health statistics aren’t compromised by people not testing, although it is very hard to blame them for not doing so.
I have news from over the border of success for Heather McManus at the Perth Open Show, where her Ailsa (Fasskoleys Ailsa Craig) took BoB, and her puppy Odin (Quincebois Redwood) was second in Minor Puppy (Working, I think, but certainly not just Hovawarts). Well done to them…the show scene is certainly on the up as far as our breed is concerned. Whilst thinking of north of the border, entries for Border Union close on May 11th (on line).
The same date is the deadline for the Hovawart Club of Ireland annual gathering at Mick Murphy’s Canine Country Club, near Naas, County Kildare, on Sunday May 24th. We went over last year, and it was a really nice experience, very relaxed and friendly, as you would expect from that rather laid-back country. The judge for the show is Noeleen Eccles.
