Breed Notes - 28 Nov 2021
I was very sad to read of the death of Ann Arch in this last week’s Our Dogs. Ann was for a long time the secretary of the National Working and Pastoral Breeds Society, formerly just the National Working Breeds Society, and was very much a friend to our breed. She was our president for several years at the end of the last century (gosh…that sounds a long time ago !!) and judged our club show in 2005, when she had as her BoB our long-term patron Ans Schellekens’ beautiful Lara. She will be sorely missed.

Maggie’s puppies finally arrived on Friday, very sensibly during the day. Our experience leads us to expect them early rather than late, so the fact that they were four days overdue had us all a bit twitchy, but 7 dogs and 3 bitches, all b/g, duly came into this world in the course of just a few hours, and Cello is proving, like her sister Kibble, to be a calm and sensible mother, a bit of a surprise compared to her usual frenetic behaviour we encounter when we visit. It will be very interesting to compare these pups with the litter we had earlier in the year, as the breeding is identical. I can only hope she is as happy with them as we were with ours.

Nick has sent through more details of the planned celebrations for the centenary next year by the IHF. The conference and events will be held on the weekend of June 11/12 at the Schlosshof Fasanerie at Fulda, Germany. This is about 460 miles from Calais. Hotel rooms have already been reserved, and there will be a gala evening on the Saturday. I do hope that the trend of recent years will be reversed and that the show that they organise at the weekend will have a truly international entry. The last few have been rather limited to dogs from the hosting nations. In terms of the continent, Fulda is pretty central, so it should be reasonably easy for the Europeans to get there, assuming that Covid regulations won’t be messing it all up. If anyone wants any more details, they should get in touch with Nick, whose details are on the club website.

Don’t forget to send for the calendar, details again can be found on the club site. The price hasn’t been changed for a number of years, so it represents really good value now, just the thing for a Christmas stocking.
