Breed Notes (Our Dogs - Craig Hosie) - 11 Jun 2017
Starting off from my last set of breed notes l had mentioned Julie with Gunner ( zwartbos Carisbrooke ) was going into Julie’s work to be stroked to raise money for the Stroke association , Gunner took it in his stride and loved every moment and he raised £270 for this worthwhile charity , what an excellent result. Another excellent result this time in Ireland with Mick Murphy with Guinness and Molly , both black & gold winning the brace class at one of the all-breed shows , the picture in the dog papers was great and is so unusual to see Hovawarts in the picture gallery .

Onto show results with SKC at Ingliston with 3 classes for judge Mrs D Stansbury with an entry of 8 dogs and 1 absentee with BOB going to Min’s Fasskoleys Silkie a B&G bitch from the open bitch class with reserve bitch going to Gina challoners blonde girl Isalynn V Elderens Hof with BD & BV going to Mins Blonde Boy Chief , Minches Chief Riever and RBD &

BP was the blonde boy owned by Janice &Dave Brown & Robinson with Zwartbos Moonshine Whiskey. The same weekend Redditch Open show had 3 classes for Hovawarts with our judge being Jay Horgan , with only 2 entries and she found her BOB in Mark & Becky Harrison ‘s Milo , his posh Name bring Pines Wiggins, a B&G dog with his breeders being the second handler present showing their Kibble, Pines Flash Bang Wallop gaining BOS & BP. Well done to all.

Obedience news and Maggie Spencer who is well known in the obedience circles with her Hovawarts has won “B” with Dollar , which is Hightimbers Dollar , I believe a very difficult task working against Border collies to get to the top, so a very well done. Janice Robinson and Dave Brown’s Leo ,Zwartbos moonshine whiskey has went and achieved the silver good citizen’s award test which is an excellent result considering he is only 11 months old , this young dog is showing the breeds versatility by winning in the show ring and doing well in the obedience side of things. Well done.

Bath CH show held classes for Hovawrts for the first time with Gill Stockton taking centre stage , having an entry of 11 with 3 absentees and she found her BOB , BV in the bitch Val shone’s Ursine vd Romerweide of Zwartbos and not only that but she took BP at her first show with Zwartbos Moondance a black girl that Val bred. Best Dog went to another Zwartbos dog , Janice and Dave’s Zwartbos moonshine Whiskey , with reserve dog going to Kate Allen’s Kanukalos Allego a B&G, with RBB going to Gina’s Isalynn V Elderens Hof . A very well done to all. Next week will report on Dundee open show which gave us classes , any news just drop me a line.
