Breed Notes (Our Dogs - Craig Hosie) - 12 Feb 2018
Lots to catch up, but firstly must share the excitement of three bitches which has been confirmed In whelp. With one litter due in Scotland and the other two down south this is going to be wonderful additions to our breed and exciting times for new puppy owners. I am looking forward to visiting one of the litters, with Spring being a nice time for pups to go to their new homes and the lighter nights to help with socialisation. I would like to wish Gill Stockton warm wishes in her new house in Lancashire and also John and Elaine who has moved house to Shropshire . Onto show results with Manchester Championship show having a good entry with our judge Mr Tom Johnston giving BB and BOB to Mrs Mooney Ir CH Metsavahdin Robin with BD going to Julie Condron’s Zwartbos Carisbrooke with RBD going Mick Murphy’s Micona Foxtrot. The RBB went to Gill Stockton’s Annvad Lady Hazel and BP went to Mrs Monney’s Micona Sierra. We had good support from Mick’s litter from Ireland who were over to qualify for Crufts, with 6 pups from this litter making their debut and enjoying themselves. It must have been lovely to see. This takes us onto our entries for Crufts which has just been published and we have an entry of 44 with an overall entry of 56 for our judge Mr Steve Hall. I have managed to get a flight down on the Thursday, so I am looking forward to meeting up with you all and getting the chance to watch the judging.

A hugh congratulations to Dave Brown and Janice Robinson on their achievement with Leo, Zwartbos Moonshine Whiskey on Top Dog in Breed and Top Puppy in Breed, Ourdogs 2017 , Top Bitch was Pines Acorn owned by John & Elaine Sharpe and Top Stud dog was Igor Vd Hofreite with Top Brood Bitch being Val & Steve Shone’s Ursine Vd Rommerweide with Val taking Top Breeder. Wonderful results and well done to everybody. Please keep these notes going, my new email address is .
