Breed Notes - 8 Dec 2015
I was comforted by the new Hovawart Group Face Book page recently when there was a discussion on moulting. Our girls and Dublin had all been moulting and you tend to think it is just you. It was reassuring to learn that several other owners were having to get their vacuum cleaners out every day as well. I guess it must be the unusually warm weather we have been having recently, and if you yourself feel too hot you take your cardigan off, don’t you? Same must apply to the dogs. I can’t believe its December and we haven’t had our central heating on yet.
LKA this coming weekend and with a high number of entries in AVNSC Maggie and the girls with their litter brothers and sisters will all be hard pressed to qualify for Crufts in the spring. It may need a visit to the Manchester show in January to get that necessary placing, especially as there are breed classes.
After what seems ages, but is actually only 7 weeks, we heard today the news of Poppy’s hip score, which thankfully is 1:4. As we have a club rule about not breeding with Hovawarts with high scores, it is a great relief to know that your next brood bitch comes well within the acceptable level. I think that the KC scheme, with a panel of assessors, is very reassuring when compared to some of the continental countries where, we heard at the IHF conference, scores were at best “unreliable”. Also, having a score with numbers seems to be more informative than the banding schemes where you are given a grade of “A” , “B” and so on.
Have a wonderful Christmas, and don’t forget to get out on decent walks with the dog/s
