Breed Notes - 30 Mar 2010
Fifteen people attended the club AGM last weekend, at the home of the Driftingsky dogs, and Liz and Lyn near Nottingham. It was the first time we actually went directly there, thanks to some careful navigating, and a big power station. The meeting was straightforward and concluded in good time for a superb lunch. The vacancies on the committee were filled by Ann Travis, Janet Pearce and Maggie Spencer. The “Tia” Trophy was awarded to Thunder (Laura Wright) for his role as a blood donor. An important topic of conversation was how best to fund-raise for the 2012 IHF meeting, which is to be held in UK, and trying to decide on the venue. When you need a nice hotel, with lots of dog friendly grounds, a caravan site, a camping site, a conference room, lots of self-catering chalets, all in easy reach of the channel tunnel, airports, and motorways, at a reasonable price, it’s not that easy. It is an honour to be asked to host this event, and we all agreed that we must give a good account of ourselves. We are going to look into starting a “100 club” and with a membership round about the hundred mark, I hope everybody will be happy to take part.

The club has taken in a rescue male of seven, called Harry, and after all the preliminaries have been completed, we will be looking for a new home for him. He is a handsome blonde castrated dog, and would make a wonderful companion for anybody who has time to help him settle. Harry is Italian, but is learning English very fast, and understands body language well. If you feel you may be the right home for him, please get in touch with me.
