Breed Notes - 27 May 2015
Thank you to those of you that replied to my last lot of breed notes with regards to the inclusion of a stud dog list on the clubs website. I will now take this suggestion forward and ask the committee of the club to hopefully discuss this issue further at one of their meetings, as it can only benefit the breed. Sad news this week from Julie Condron who has sadly had to say goodbye to her beloved girl “Polly “ her posh name being Hofwarth Dewytch with old age taking it’s toll and Julie having to make that sad decision that we all hate making. Born in January 2003 from very successful dogs Vindael Devlin x Schwarzwald Phenomena, and with Polly being from the last litter of Hovawarts that Julie bred is extremely upsetting. She has three siblings that are still with us, namely Solly, Sam and Harvey. Our sympathy and wishes goto Julie, there is some consolation that her breeding continues in other lines.



In the show front , SKC had an entry of only four for our judge Mr Saevich who had three classes and there was two absentees with Min I believe who was feeling unwell and couldn’t make it, so it was down to Heather McManus to fly the flag for us with her girl Fasskoleys Ailsacraig getting BB & BOB with her young dog puppy Quincebois Redwood getting BP. I believe the judge made them work for their awards, so well done Heather, also congratulations to Heather at Perthshire open show where her girl Ailsacraig got BOB with her young boy Odin ( Quincebois Redwood ) getting a respectable second in working minor puppy class. Thanks goes to Elaine for finding out the Redditch & District Open show results as they had put on classes for Hovawarts and I believe there was three entries, two of which were John & Elaines who couldn’t go due to work commitments and another lady who had went along with her Hovawart , but Sadly missed the classes. The entries down south have been good lately but I do worry about the entries north of the border and will we be able to keep classes, one can only hope that our colleagues down south with try and make the journey north to help us keep what we have all tried to achieve over the years. Our next CH show for Hovies with classes are Border Union who sees Breed Specialist Elaine Betts coming from Herefordshire to judge three classes, I do hope that Elaine gets a better entry than SKC !
