Breed Notes - 29 Sep 2015
Some very sad news this week, we have just heard about the sudden death of Ann Marriott, at only 60, on September 6th. She has been involved with our breed for many years, not so much in the show ring, although she did enter local classes….I remember meeting her and her dogs at the Bedford Show when they scheduled us for the first time….but was very keen on agility, and also helped for many years on the breed stand At Discover Dogs at Crufts. Indeed, her efforts were to be recognised in the award to her “Nettle” of the Tia Trophy at the show this coming Sunday. The club will still go ahead and present the trophy at the show, and there will be a “bucket” collection in her memory to go to medical Detection Dogs and Canine Partners, the charities nominated at her funeral, which was last Friday.

I was listening to Jeremy Vine on Radio 2 on Thursday morning and was immediately alerted to an article about mystery deaths from dogs that had been reported on holiday with their owners in Cornwall and Devon. Apparently several otherwise healthy dogs had been playing on the beach during the day and returning home suffering from sickness and diarrhoea. Several fatalities were reported and after investigation a substance called “palm oil” was discovered. Palm oil is released from tankers out at sea, usually at night or when satellites are unable to spot the tell tale trail it leaves. It sounds harmless enough but by all accounts it is washed up on beaches in a solidified form and is toxic to wildlife and dogs. Be extra diligent when exercising your pet on any beach and avoid letting them eat anything.
