Breed Notes (Our Dogs - Craig Hosie) 24 July 2017
This week we had Leeds CH show, which to be honest is one of the shows which I have never attended due to their being no breed classes on offer for Hovawarts. I believe the venue is lovely and is in a good location for those who have made the journey to go, with some breed enthusiasts requesting we should ask for classes at this show. This year the breed was supported by Dave Brown and Janice Robinson with their Zwartbos gang who did the breed very proud with Zwartbos Moet Beg Ex, getting Best Bitch and Best AVNSC working and with their young boy Zwartbos Moonshine Whiskey taking the reserve Best Dog. To make the win more special for Janice and Dave, Lexi went on to challenge for Best AVNSC Working/Pastoral/Terrier, and won the overall Best AVNSC from the other groups as well. Judge was Mr Keith Thornton. A very well done to you both an a wonderful result. I did read on Facebook that Gina was entered with Isalynn however Isalynn wasn’t well and Gina stayed at home , so I hope Gina’s Isalynn is feeling better soon. Still on show news, entries are out for Paignton CH show with a poor entry of 4 for our judge Mrs J Strudwick who has been given 6 classes, we are on the Monday which has probably affected the entry.
For those living in Scotland we have Perthshire open show on the 23rd September at the Jim Clark Auction Hall, Errol Airfield, Perth with entries closing by post on the 28th August or online 11th September, we have only one class for our judge who is doing the working group , David Alcorn (Lourdace), but I believe that we could get 2 classes next year if our numbers are good at this show. I always like Perthshire open show and in the past they have been very supportive of the breed by putting on classes for us. So if you can put an entry in and try and support the class. I would like to mention results in other disciplines, so if you have obedience, rally etc please do get in touch.
