 Gemmas daughter Izzy  took Spyda into the Ykc  Stakes under judge Celia Vines and they were awarded a 2nd  so very well done .

Congratulations  everyone with your results  from the Open show and Champ shows .

  A couple of warnings to you all in case you are unaware .

We are coming to the season where farmers fields will turn golden yellow with Rapeseed ,

However pretty the fields look please do not walk through them with your dogs. Rapeseed is listed as Toxic to our dogs if ingested and can cause symptoms such as  !

Haemolytic Anaemia , Blindness , Damaged Nervous System , Digestive Disorders and breathing problems ,      With my Asthma i cant even pass it with car windows open .

   Talking of farmers I hope you are all aware at  this time there are hundreds of lambs being born everywhere across the country , Sadly there also has been an increase in dogs chasing sheep in fields , causing ewes to miscarry their lambs and killing some too . The law is if in field being a threat to his sheep the farmer has the right to shoot your dog , and they will .Make sure you pass livestock with your dogs on the lead . Also take great care there are now lots of Adders   especially around late morning  sunbathing  . If your dog is bitten dont make them run to the car , carry them    as running will push the venom arund their body . I always carry Piraton  myself  when im out with our dogs ,as my vet advised 1 tablet gives more time to get to the vet  , some vets do say some dont  so check with your  vets for their advice..
