Breed Notes

By Lyn Etches


Mostly news for Crufts and car safety, as no one else has sent me any news this time around. Just remember it’s Your Breed notes.

News from Dr Chris Millard following the last notes on Debbie Howe’s crash. Chris was also involved in a car crash and he had Hedra in the car, although serious damage to the car thankfully both Chris and Hedra are ok.

I hope everyone is aware of the laws governing safety in cars. Dogs can only be on the back seat with a harness or restrained in the back of the car ideally in a cage. In the event of an accident if your dog is loose the fine ranges between £2,500 and £3,500 and between 6 to 9 points and your insurance is null and void.

Kerry Diamond took Nova, Ch Eriksfjord Aurora Charm to a local show and in a large Avnsc open class she came 2nd, then won the member’s stakes and she chose to spend her winnings buying her mum a nice bottle of wine.  Lol fancy her being clever enough to know which 1 she would like.

Crufts info.

Our judge Karen Gilliland has been informed that Vallhunds are hopefully going to be in the ring approximately 1 o/c, so that is useful to know, means you can get your shopping 1st.

Events this year at Crufts include the Eukanuba World Challenge, Champion Stakes  final and The Top Puppy of The Year. Breeders Finals are on Friday. Unfortunately i have been unable to find out when Anneka Scholes is in the ring with Jet, Jet Set on the High Road in YKC  Smalldog Abc agility (Anything but a collie) and Otto , Meddobe Spice Wyecliffe in the Ykc Graduate Agility. I don’t know the times but will be in the Ykc area.

To say some people on Fb have been discussing about having to stay till 4 they should be so lucky years ago we had to be in there really early and not leave till 6 o/c and its always  easier to wait for the queues to go first then you won’t queue to get out of the car park. But if you recall i had mentioned Gemma’s daughter Izzy is in the Ykc Pastoral Finals with our Spyda, Starvon Cryptic Spyda  her final is at 5:45 so guessing the queues will be gone.
