Hovawart Breed Notes 7/9/15

John and I are just off to the IHF conference, being held this year near Pisa. We will meet up with Helen & Nick Boisseau, and we are aiming to have a go at the show on Sunday. Sadly, this means we miss Richmond, but no doubt we will hear all about it on our return.

I was speaking to Val Shone in the week, and she says Steve is making progress, albeit slowly. She did have some very good news, though, because her Chale won the recent Agility competition at Madcap Agility. The field was split in three, and Val & Chale went in the first batch, completing a clear round, but Val had no thoughts of overall success and went home, only to get a call to go back to be presented with a handsome trophy as overall winners. Terrific news, but more was to come, as Katherine Rynor took her “Luna” (from Val’s “Champagne” litter)to the Essex Dog Day, where in front of a crowd of 9 thousand, and in classes of over a hundred dogs, she took 4th best pedigree and 5th prettiest female. That must have been quite an experience for both of them.

Meanwhile, Luna’s litter sister Lexi , in only her 2nd and 3rd Obedience competitions, got a 2nd, two 3rds and a 4th place, in classes of twenty or more. What a wonderful start to her career, and not only that, but owner Janice is putting back in by beginning stewarding at Working Trials. Good on you !!

Not to be outdone by the newcomers, Paula Foakes ‘ Merlot has won his 3rd “A “ completion, meaning he is now up into “B”. Hovawarts are certainly getting noticed in all the right places.
