Thank you to Jane McCann for letting me know that at Dumfries and Galloway open show Esgia the Exciseman won his class, BOB and then went on to win the Terrier group under judge Jim McGhie From there he went on to win RBIS under judge Ken Green. As you can imagine Jane and Tom Pringle are delighted with this win. Congratulations
Lisa and Neil Sanderson along with Jenny Kendrick were again out promoting Skye’s over the weekend. This time at the National pet show. As ever the dogs were all very well behaved and attracted a lot of attention from visitors at the event. Promoting our breed is so important and we are very lucky to have Skye people who are prepared to give up their time to carry out this important unpaid work. Thank you

Skye Terrier Breed Notes


Scottish Kennel Club has issued the following press release. Personally I feel that this is a good move and agree that it is likely to be beneficial to the majority of exhibitors.

After listening to feedback from our Exhibitors and Trade Stand Holders, Scottish Kennel Club is pleased to announce that an agreement has been reached to exchange their August Championship Show dates with Driffield Society’s dates. Due to the many Championship shows held in the South of the UK during the Summer months of July, August and September, all the travelling involved and the high costs of accommodation during the ever-expanding Edinburgh Festival, SKC thought this move would be beneficial to all involved. We are happy to report that the exchange of show dates has now been approved by The Kennel Club in London. SKC can confirm that plans are in place to write to our Judges personally to ensure their availability is not affected by the move and also to Show Societies who may be affected by the change of dates. SKC hopes this will prove to be beneficial and welcomed by everyone involved in dog showing.

The dates and group split for October 2021 are as follows:

Saturday, 2nd October 2021

Working, Pastoral, Utility, Toy

Sunday, 3rd October 2021

Gundog, Hound, Terrier

I has entered Midland Counties but unfortunately could not attend. Jane Curtis was there however and I’m sure she is delighted with her day out. Ch Verumamicus Aurora of Brakemill came through from the AVNSC Terrier classes and was awarded Terrier Group 1 by David Guy. Congratulations.

Ch Verumamicus Aurora of Brakemill was placed first in the yearling stakes. Congratulations to all.

Cath Parker has asked me to remind everybody of the following.
It is that time of year again when updated CV’s or applications for the STC Judging List should be submitted for the Judges Sub-Committee consideration. Please send them to Cath Parker 19 Stone Pit Close, Lawton, Cheshire WA3 2TD or email to treasurer@skyeterrierclub.org.co.uk These should be submitted by 30 November to enable the revised list to be issued promptly in the New Year. Also, it is advisable that existing and potential judges take the time to read the current requirements of the KC Judges Competency Framework although these may change when the system goes live.
Jenny and Robert Kendrick Cathie and George McLeod were all out promoting the breed at Discover Dogs over the last weekend. The stars were of course the Skye’s Pasha, Murray,Emily,Seòras,Callum and Innis. Those present were delighted to speak to four people that were now the proud owners of Skye’s as a result of visiting previous Discover Dogs. This type of event is invaluable in promoting our wonderful breed to the public. I am sure that you would all like to join me in thanking those that manned the stand, especially of course the dogs. Having done many of these types of event I know just how tiring it is for both dogs and people.

Skye Terrier Breed Notes

Carrying on from last week anyone wanting to make comments on the notes should message the breed note writer. I can tell you that the vast majority o people that I have spoken to tell me that they think measuring Skye’s is a good idea. Their reason being that some Skye’s are simply too big. If you would like to add your thoughts to this please do message me and I will put it here.

News in from Cath Parker.Mrs Kay Aspin (Scarthwaite) judged at Clitharoe and District open show. Mrs Aspin awarded B.O.B to Cath Parker’s Tweedsmuir Feebee Mine SHCM and best Puppy to Robert Wilson’s Skeabost Gaelic Air. Feebee Mine went on to win Terrier Group 1. Cath certainly had a good day as she also tells me that her Glorfindel Deacon Brodie SHCM gained his final points for his eternal Warrent - subject to KC confirmation. Congratulations.

The annual Pet blessing service held at Greyfriars Kirk was held on October 6th. The service was taken by Reverend Richard Frazier and was well attended. Following the service Reverend Frazier led those attending a walk around the Kirk. As ever this event attracted many on lookers who were most interested in everything that was happening.
Please remember that these are your breed notes so make sure you message me with your Skye news and views.

First of all my apologies for the lack of notes last week.

The Skye Terrier Club held their Championship show at Shenstone village hall Lichfield. The atmosphere was good as was the catering. I must make a special mention of Brian Curtis for making the best coffee I have ever had at a dog show. It was very much appreciated! Mr. Allan Stephenson was our Judge. Allan is very well known throughout the Skye world and is the only Judge I have ever seen actually measure the height of the dogs. This was a topic of discussion at the show with the general consensus of opinion being that some Skye’s are actually too big and, perhaps losing that wonderful outline and deviating for the standard. Interestingly the vast majority of exhibitors liked the fact the dogs were measured. If anyone does disapprove of measuring it would be interesting to hear your views on the matter. These are your breed notes so do please let me know and I will publish it next week.
Moving on to the actual results. DCC and BIS my own Ch Linum Cranberry Crush at Salena, RDCC and RBIS Kendrick’s Ch Frisco Kiaora at Jeraro ( at Skye Club Shows the reserve can challenge the best opposite sex for RBIS), BCC Pringles Esgia First and Fairest, RBCC Finnsky Yves,BP Parrima-Arih Invaluable Fascination is Madaza and BV Curtis Ch Brakemill Briar Rose. Congratulations to all.

Unfortunately,due to the same circumstances that prevented me from doing last weeks notes, I could not get to Driffield. Mr Bob Blackley judged the breed and he awarded the following: Bd Curtis Ch Brakemill Barnum Sh CM, RBD Woodheads Knowlespring Jackson BB Curtis’ Ch Verumamicus Aurora of Brakemill. Ch Brakemill Barnum was placed third in the Veteran stakes class under Judge Hazel Fitzgibbon and VG2 under Judge Gerard Cox and Ch Verumamicus Aurora of Brakemill was awarded G2 also under Judge Gerard Cox. Congratulations to all.

News in from Muriel Bailey Kingston open show had Skye classes so Muriel took Celticbridge Ocean Belle at Marjayn. The judge was Mr Gareth Lawler he awarded Ocena Belle BOB and Terrier G1. Mrs Jenny MIller judged BIS and awarded Ocean Belle BIS 4. Congratulations

I didn’t enter Richmond as I had a litter of pups due. I’m very pleased to say that Lilly (Ch Salena Silver Sapphire) produced 9 puppies; 5 bitches and 4 dogs sired by Ch Linum Cranberry Crush at Salena. Back to Richmond show. There were 2 Skye’s entered with Ch Verumamicus Aurora of Brakemill taking BOB. Verumamicus went on to win Terrier G1 under Judge Geoff Cornish. Congratulations to owner Jane Curtis.
Cath Parker contacted me to let me know about the Cheshire Game and Country fair. This was held over the bank holiday weekend and I understand quite busy. The Skye’s proved to be very popular with people going back several times to see them an have another cuddle. This type of event is a wonderful way to promote our fabulous breed. Cath tells me the weather was very hot, the atmosphere was lovely and the dogs were amazing. Those taking part were Cath and Ian Parker with Brodieand Feebee, Jennie and Billy De Leie with Jake and Troy, Chris Burscough with Badger and Rachel and Andy Heath with Patsy and Bugsy. Many thanks to all for taking time to promote our breed.

I have to confess that with the rain prior to WKC I was not really looking forward to it. The weather on the Saturday however was kind although we were still judged indoors. The ringside atmosphere was friendly with it seems everyone enjoying the day out. Mr Peter Bakewell was our Judge he awarded the following DCC and BOB Kendrick’s Ch Frisco Kiaora at Jeraro (imp), RDCC my own Ch Linum Cranberry Crush at Salena (Imp Fin), BB Curtis’Ch Verumamicus Aurora of Brakemill, RBCC Heath’s Perrylands Hello Again, BP Miller and Ryan’s Flanagan Energizer at Feorlig and BV Parker’s Glorfindel Deacon Brodie Sh CM. Ch Frisco Kiaora at Jeraro (imp) was shortlisted in the Terrier Group under Judge Mr Paul Harding. Glorfindel Deacon Brodie Sh CMwas awarded Veteran Group 4 under Judge Mr Tony Alcock. Congratulations to all.

A reminder that entries close for the Skye Terrier Club show at the end of August. When I wrote my entry out I realised that I did not have a cheque book. After John passed away I had to remove his name from our joint account. I didn’t realise that I had not had a new cheque book, most likely because I haven’t needed to write a cheque since then. It would perhaps benefit the club and make it easier for exhibitors to be able to enter the Club shows online.

Skye Terrier breed notes 30.07.19

The Skye ring at Leeds was lovely and large as well as half in and half out. Unfortunately the grass was ridiculously long meaning the Skye’s were a bit hesitant on the move. I know I wasn’t the only Skye exhibitor wondering whether to let the coat splay out on top of the thick grass or tuck it underneath the dog. I even tried to flatten the grass out but was unsuccessful in my efforts.The grass was up to Spencers elbows in place!. Cath Parker judged the breed and awarded the following DCC Thomson’s Glorfindel Shadow Boxer Sh CM, RDCC Large’s Juger Eidelweiss Mickey Mouse is Madaza (imp), BCC and BOB Curtis’ Verumamicus Aurora of Brakemill JW, RBCC Campbell’s Buckwheaters Pictured Perfect, BP Large’s Parrima-arih Invaluable Fascination (Imp Rus) NAF and Best Special beginner Evans Celticbridge Man of War. Congratulations to all.

Cath Parker has been in touch It seems that unfortunately there were not adequate subscriptions to make the Skye Terrier Club 100 Club viable. As such Anne Ankcorn has contacted those that did subscribe to explain the situation and return their cheques. Cath would Iike to extend a big thank you to those that have asked for their cheques to be donated to the club rather than returned.

Skye’s have been out generating publicity for the breed and, hopefully, educating possible future owners. This time they were at Hatfield show ground. Jenny and Rob Kendrick, Cathie and George Mcleod along with Neil and Lisa Sanderson were the handlers. This Skye stars were Pasha, Murray, Seoras, Emily, Innis, Callum, Merlin, Breagha and Laddich. The Skye’s were, as usual,very well behaved and greatly admired. Thank you to everyone involved for promoting our wonderful Skye’s .

Jan Shuttleworth judged the breed at Blackpool, this year without CC’s, with an entry of 15 Skye’s . Jan awarded the following: BD Parker’s Glorfindel Deacon Brodie SHCM, RBD McLean and Weir’s Knowlespring Jackpot at Rhoderns, BB and BOB Campbell’s Buckwhetaers Pictured Perfect and RBB Curtis’ Verumamicus Aurora of Brakemill. I hadn’t entered this show as I understood Terriers were on the Friday but the week before the show I discovered Terriers were on the Sunday.
The weather at Windsor was lovely and it was so good to be able to show outside and enjoy the sunshine. This year we had CC’s for Skye’s, Jeff Horswell was the Judge and had an entry of 15.
He awarded the following: DCC Kendrick’s Ch Frisco Kiaora at Jeraro (Imp), RDCC McLeod’s Edelweiss Me Myself and I, BCC and BOB Curtis’ Verumamicus Aurora of Brakemill, RBCC and BV Curtis’ Brakemill Briar Rose and BP Baker’s Annabelle form Waringcastle to SilverBriar (Imp).

Mr. Andrew Hamilton judged the breed at Border Union. He awarded the following: DCC Pringle’s Esgia The Exciseman, RDCC Thomson’s Glorfindel Shadow Boxer, BCC & BOB Curtis’ Verumamicus Aurora of Brakemill and RBCC Campbell’s Buckwheaters Pictured Perfect. Aurora also took G2 under Mr Albert White. Congratulations.
Following judging the Scottish branch of the club had organised their usual bench party. This is much appreciated by the exhibitors - particularly, in my opinion, Cathie McLeods Banoffee pie! I believe those present thoroughly enjoyed a bite to eat and chatting with everyone. Thank you to the Scottish branch for their hospitality.
The following day was the annual gathering celebrating Bobbys day. I understand that there were 17 Skye’s present and gathered around Bobbys statue. This usually results in many tourists stopping to take photos of the dogs which is valuable publicity for the breed. I believe that Skye’s and there owners then enjoy refreshments at Bobbys bar which is veer dog friendly.

Skye’s were well represented at the Royal Bath and West show in the new event for the show this year “ The Great British Dogs”. Thank you to Jenny Kendrick for providing details for us.

The Skye’s present were Murray,Seoras, Emily,Callum,Innis,Merlin,Breagh, Laddidich and Pasha.They were accompanied by their humans Cathy and George Mcleod, Lisa and Neil Sanderson and Jenny and Rob Kendrick. I am told that Pasha and Merlin thoroughly enjoyed the terrier racing. The dogs were paraded in the main ring every day, along with the other breeds . Mr Nigel Spraggins gave a brief commentary on each breed for the crowd. The Skye’s were all introduced to the Earl and Countess of Bathurst and Adam Henson. Adam was particularly impressed but the breed showing great interest in them. These events are a wonderful way of promoting our breed. I know from personal experience of such events that the dogs and their humans thoroughly enjoy themselves. Well done to everyone and, most importantly the Skye’s, for taking part.

Many thanks to Cath Parker for the following news.At Lancashire Sporting Terrier Woodhead’s Knowlespring Jackson was awarded BP and BOB under Judge Stewart Golding ( Beaconpike).

Skye Terrier Breed Notes


Those travelling from the south to SKC on the Friday will likely have had an awful journey. There had been an accident on the M6 resulting in a closure between jct 40 and 41. Many exhibitors were stuck for hours making it a long day. I was fortunate to only be held up for just over an hour. Skye’s were on the Saturday and our judge was Jill Hadleigh. The main winners were; DCC my own Linum Cranberry Crush at Salena (Imp Fin), RDCC and BP McLean & Weir’s Knowlespring Jackpot at Rhoderns, BCC and BOB Curtis’ Verumamicus Aurora of Brakemill, RBCC Pringles Esgia First and Fairest and BV Curtis Ch Brakemill Briar Rose. Briar Rose (Rosy) went on to win the Veteran Terrier Group under Judge Derek Smith and RBVIS under Judge Moray Armstrong. Congratulations to all.

I am delighted to say that this was Linum Cranberry Crush at Salena’s (Spencer) 3rd and crowning CC - subject to KC confirmation. It is less than 6 months since Spencer made his show debut as such I, along with his breeder Mari Langinkoski, am more than a little pleased with him.

Skye Notes

Mr Jan-Erik Ek judged Skye at The National Championship Dog Show at Stafford. He awarded the following: DCC and BOB CURTIS Ch Brakemill Barnum,RDCC McLeods Juger Eidelweiss Me Myself an I at Esgia (imp), BCC Curtis Verumamicus Aurora of Brakemill JW, RBCC Large’s’ Parrima -arih Universe of my Fantasy is Madaza (imp), BP Herberts Finsky Yves. Cath PARKER entered the 60+ handling class with Glorfindel Deacon Brodie. Cath was awarded 4th place under Judge Mr Daniel Roberts. Congratulations to all.

It was at the same show that Jane Curtis and Brakemill Barnum achieved a new breed record. The previous holder was myself with Ch Salena The Special One. As I did when The Special One took the record from Ch Wolverley Chummie I have written a summary of each Dogs wins.

Ch Brakemill Barnum “Barney” has won a total of 30 CC’s under 30 different judges. He has been shown from the age of 6 months winning his first CC at the age of 18 months. His latest CC was at The National at the age of 7 years.Barney won the Open Dog show dog of the year in 2017. He has had many Group places including G1 at Manchester 2017. He was awarded RBIS at Scottish Breeds and has also won the final of the Vulnerable breeds competition held at Crufts. Barney won BOB twice at Crufts.

Ch Salena The Special One “Lampard” also won numerous group places including 5 Group 1’s one of which was the Group at Crufts in 2013. He was Reserve Best in Show at Leeds Championship Show. Lampard won his first CC at the age of 2 which is when he first entered the show ring. During his 3 1/2 years in the ring he gained 29 CC’s under 28 judges. Lampard also won a heat of the Champion Stakes and went on to be placed 4th in the end of year final; he is the only Skye to have achieved this honour. Lampard was unbeaten by any Skye at Crufts winning BOB each time.


I am sure that many of you prefer either Lampard or Barnum. Which ever dog you prefer it is important to remember that both of these dogs have provided our breed with some valuable publicity.

Skye Notes


Firstly my apologies for being late with the notes this week.
I would like to say well done to the committee of National Terrier for the layout of their show. This is one of my favourite shows and it is obvious, to me at least, that the hardworking committee of really do think about the exhibitors. We have lovely rings close to benching and grooming areas making showing so much easier for all. It was here that Lyn Richardson awarded CC’s for the first time. The main awards were Best of Breed and BCC and Best Veteran Graingers Whicheeta Celtic Connection, DCC Curtis’ Ch Brakemill Barnum, RDCC Pringles Esgia The Exciseman, RBCC. Large’s Parrima-arih Universe of my Fantasy is Madaza (imp), best puppy McLean and Weir’s Knowlespring Jackpot at Rhoderns. Congratulations to all.

The Skye Terrier Club Open show is being held on 20 April. As I am not attending I am hoping to be able to watch the video footage that is usually put up on the Skye Terrier Club Facebook page. I think that it is George McLeod that does this and I must say that it is most appreciated by those of us that are not attending.The Judge for the show is Miss Sarah Downes. Good luck to all exhibitors I will be watching via Facebook

Muriel Bailey was our judge at Scottish Breeds Championship show this year. On entering the ring the steward advised exhibitors that the judge wanted the dogs to free stand rather than being stacked as they usually are. This is an unusual request and it has to be said it was quite the topic of conversation and confusion amongst exhibitors. It turned out however that the free stacking was only required on entry into the class. Dogs were allowed to be stacked on the table and in the final line up prior to placing. The main winners were as follows: DCC and BOB my own Linum Cranberry Crush at Salena (Imp Fin), RDCC the late G.Marshall’s Flanagan Show Stopper Glorfindel (Imp Sun), BCC the late G.Marshall’s But Beautiful of Morningsky (Imp Deu), RBCC Evans Kometa Rossi Bozema at Marodyme (Imp Deu), BP McLean &Weir Knowlespring Jackpot at Rhoderns, B.J. Shuttleworth’s Whicheeta Total Eclipse and BV Parker’s Glorfindel Deacon Brodie ShCm. Whicheeta went on to be awarded reserve best junior in show under Judge Mr. R. Kinsey. Congratulations to all.

Jenny Kendrick has messaged with some exciting news. It seems that Jenny and Pasha are to be in the programme for Michael Ball’s tour. Michaels latest album is called “Coming home to you”. The promotional video shows Michael coming home to his own dog. It was decided that a competition would be run for people to send photos of the pets they went home to. Jenny and Pasha were chosen along with 9 others to be in the programme.
Whilst this is good news for Jenny, she worships Michael Ball, it is great news for Skye’s. It will, hopefully, result in people wanting to know more about the breed and perhaps think of having one. As we all know our Skye’s are a vulnerable breed so positive publicity is so important. I am sure Jenny will have a copy of the programme when it is printed and show everyone.

Skye Terrier Breed Notes

Skye’s were second in the ring at Crufts so allowing exhibitors plenty of preparation time. Judge Mr Bill Brown-Cole drew an entry of 55 Skye’s. This number included quite a few overseas visitors as such there was a lot of chatting and catching up to do! The atmosphere was good with all those present appearing to enjoy their day. There was a lot of discussion amongst exhibitors with regard to both colour and size with many exhibitors showing a real concern for the direction the breed appears to be going in. This conversation also carried on after Crufts on some Facebook threads. From the conversations I heard, and saw on Facebook, it seems that the majority of people feel that Skye’s should conform to the standard but the worry is that they are deviating from that. Whilst many people feel that a slight difference in height is acceptable they do think that some Skye’s are getting far too big. In the opinion of many, including myself, although some aspects of the breed standard could be said to be open to interpretation it is quite clear when it comes to both size and colour. At Crufts many people could not figure out exactly what colour some of the Skye’s present were. I have to say that although some people appear to get upset about such discussions I personally feel that it is a good thing. After all we should all be striving to breed and show dogs that conform, as closely as possible, to the breed standard.

I am quite sure that you are all aware of Skye results at Crufts therefore I will just mention the principle winners here. DCC Blahova’s Flanaghan Limited Edition, RDCC Curtis’ Ch Brakemill Barnum,BCC & BOB Curtis’ Verumamicus Aurora of Brakemill, RBCC Kanasova’s ICH/SK/ CZ/HU/HR/HO/RUS/NL/AT Ch Gold Monarh Tramontana, Best Veteran Stewart’s Multi Ch Finnsky Momentous and Best Puppy McLean & Weir’s Knowlespring Jackpot at Rhoderns. Congratulations to all.

Thank you to Sue Large for news from Darwin Canine Society open show. Sue took Parrima-Arih Of My Fantasy is Madaza “(Fenya) to the show and was over the moon with her fabulous day out. Judge Mr L Reynolds awarded Fenya AVNSC junior followed by Best AVNSC. The same judge then went on to award Fenya G3. This was a really good day out for Sue especially as it meant that Fenya collected her final point for her junior warrant (subject to KC confirmation). As Sue points out this is not an easy achievement in a small breed such as ours. A huge thank you from Sue to Natalia Dobrinskaya and Jana Pickova for letting Fenya come to England and live with Sue. Congratulations to all.

Thank you to Cath Parker for sending me news from Southport and Birkdale Kennel Association. Mr Shaun Watson was the AVNSC Terrier Judge; Skye’s do not have classes at this show. Tweedsmuir Feebee Mine SHCM was 1st in limit whilst Glorfindel Deacon Brodie SHCM was awarded Best Terrier Veteran. Cath is, understandably proud of him, even more so when he was awarded Best Veteran in show by Mr Ian Biggs.
Cath also gave me knees from Stockport Canine Society, which was held the day after. There were 3 Skye’s present for Ms Carmel Clarke-O’Neil to judge. Sue Large’s Parrima-Arih Universe of my Fantasy was awarded 1st AVNSC junior. Cathay Parker’s Tweedsmuir Feebee Mine SHCM was only beaten in her class by the eventual Group winner. Not to be out done Glorfindel Deacon Brodie SHCM was awarded Best Terrier Veteran. Well done to all

Jenny Kendrick and Pasha have been out promoting the breed again. This time it was at the National Pet show at the NEC in Birmingham. From the look of the photos on Facebook it was a very busy weekend. Also there were Breach, Merlin and Laddich accompanied by owners Lisa and Neil Sanderson. These events are so important in helping to promote our breed. Many thanks to all that help out especially the Skye’s.

Sue Large has been in touch following her attendance at Wigan and District Canine Society open show. Parrim-Arih Universe of My Fantasy is Madagascar “Freya” was awarded BAVNSC by Judge Carol Ramsay (Torum) followed by Terrier G1.The Group was also judged by Carol Ramsay. Unfortunately Sue had to leave the show to start her shift at 3pm but her friend Jayne Crabtree stayed with Freya and handled her for BIS. Sue was delighted to receive a text from Jayne saying that Freya had gone RBIS. This is a wonderful achievement for a Skye that is still a junior so Sue is, understandably, very proud. Sue said that Freya being handled by Jayne to such a win illustrates what a good temperament she has to be so well behaved for someone she barely knows. Congratulations to all three.

It was Discover Dogs last weekend and it seems that the Skye booth gained a lot of interest. This is not unusual as people do seem to be drawn to the Skye’s and appear genuinely interested in them. Of course that raises the question “why are they not more popular.” In my opinion there are several reasons for this, one being the popularity of x breeds- cockapoos labradoodles shipoos cavachons. It seems that it is the latest fashion to cross any two pedigree dogs. What I struggle to understand is that the people that own them appear to really believe that they are healthier than pedigree dogs! Back to Skye’s and I do think that some people are put off by the coat. They worry that there is too much work involved with grooming.Yet these same people buy a cross poodle. Totally illogical in my opinion. Anyway I am pleased to report that the Skye booth was well manned and very busy. So busy in fact that David,the KC Rep walking the booths, said that he hadn’t been able to get near the Skye booth as it was so busy. Thanks must go to Jenny Kendrick, Cathie and George McLeod, and of course the Skye’s Pasha, Murray, Seoras, Emily, Callum and Innis.

Good news from Jane McCann and Tommy Pringle. Esgia The Exciseman (Torr)was awarded reserve best puppy in show at Kirkintilloch and Lennie Open show on Sunday 21st October. The judge was breed specialist Mr Alan Stephenson. Naturally Jane andTommy are delighted as I am sure his breeder Cathie Mcleod must be. Congratulations to all.

I have some Skye news for you with regard to the Club breed seminar. I understand that the seminar was well supported and, even though the weather was awful, people still attended. The club issued a copy of the illustrated breed standard and Mechanics of Locomotion to participants some time prior to the seminar. This gave candidates the opportunity to take time to study prior to the seminar. I understand that there was a clipped off Skye present on the day which gave candidates the chance to see a naked dog thus, hopefully, understand the conformation better.
Moria Barry’s did the breed talk whilst Anne Ankcorn (computer wizard!) did the power point presentation. Moira and Cath Parker were the assessors with Allan Stephenson lending a helping hand. Thank you to everyone that took part in organising the seminar and to those that provided dogs.

I was very sorry to learn of the passing away of Frances Carlton’s Mom Sheena Ramsay on October 5th. Some years ago Sheena was a regular at the shows and always seemed to have a smile on her face. She did not show but enjoyed watching Frances in the ring. The funeral will take place o. October 17 at 11:45 at Kirkcaldy Crematorium. Sheena requested that it would be nice if people could wear a touch of purple. There is to be family flowers only but donations to Macmillan cancer Support and the British Heart Foundation would be greatly appreciated. I am sure that you all join me in sending Frances and the rest of Sheena’s family our deepest condolences.

Mr Ken Jessup judged the breed at SWKA and awarded the following. DCC and BOB Curtis’ Ch Brakemill Barnum, RDCC Kendricks Frisco Kiaora at Jeraro (IMP CZE), BCC my own Ch Salena Silver Sapphire, RBCC Parker’s Tweedsmuir Feebee Mine and BP Curtis’ Verumamicus Aurora of Brakemill. Ch Brakemill Barnum went on to win G3 under judge Mr David Winsley whilst Verumamicus Aurora of Brakemill was awarded PG2 under Mr Mark Cocozza. Cath Parker,with Feebee Mine, was placed third in the adult handling 60+ years class under judge Miss Hannah Wayman. Congratulations to all of the winners.
Please do let me have all of your Skye news, if you don’t let me know I can’t put it in these notes. Remember the notes are for you to share your Skye news and experiences. It does not have to be confined to show results.

The Skye Terrier Club held their championship show at Mappleborough green village hall on 29th September.

She awarded the following: DCC Kendrick’s Frisco Kiaora at Jeraro (Imp Cze), RDCC and BV Stewart’s Multi Ch Finsky Momenous, BCC and BIS Bergstroms Skyewalkers Paris,RBCC and RBIS Marshall’s But Beautiful of Morningsky Glorfindel (Imp Deu), BPIS Miller and Bergstroms Skyewalkers Q and Best Vintage Harrison’s Ch/Ir Ch Knowlespring Jailhouse Roc for Trenson SHCM.

The annual Pet blessing service is taking place again this year at Greyfriars Kirk on October 7th. Whilst all pets are welcome Skye’s do take a lead role in this ceremony. The ceremony takes approximately thirty minutes and is followed by a walk round the kirkyard. Tea and coffee is available. Everyone is welcome to attend the ceremony with of course their pets.
Will all judges please send their updated CV’s to Cath Parker as usual. It is important to get these to Cath as soon as possible as the Club judging list will be due for its annual update.

There doesn’t seem to be a lot of news around at the moment but I can give you the results from Driffield. The entry is not generally high at Driffield and it seems this year was no exception. I normally enter but actually went to a beer and curry festival in Manchester which was, I must say, very enjoyable. Cath Parker tells me that, for the second year in a row, exhibitors were not allowed to park on the show ground car park and had to to trolly the dogs to the show via a metal ramp. Mick Oxley was the judge and he awarded the following: B.D and B.O.B Curtis’s Ch Brakemill Barnum Sh.CM, RBD Parker’s Glorfindel Deacon Brodie Sh.CM, BB Zvezdina’s Ch Juger Edelweiss Mary Poppins (Imp) Sh.CM and RBB Curtis’s Veramamicus Aurora of Brakemill. Glorfindel Deacon Brodie was also 4th in the Veteran stakes under judge Mrs Sandra Marshall. Congratulations to all.

Thank you to Kate Smith for news on the first ever Dog Lovers Show Scotland. It seems that it was a resounding success for all involved. Over a two day period 10,000 dogs lovers of all ages attended the show. The Skye Terrier stand was very much admired and attended. It was a fabulous promotional event for our Skye’s. Kate is very much looking forward to next year’s show.
I had entered Darlington show as normal this year. It is one of my favourite shows, always well run and such a friendly committee. I didn’t actually get to the show but I understand Skye’s did really well. The judge was Jill Peak and she awarded the following: Curtis’s Ch Brakemill Barnum BD and BOB, RBD Large’s Juger Eidelweiss Mickey Mouse is Madaza (Imp), BB and BPCurtis’s Veramamicus Aurora of Brakemill, RBB Parker’s Tweedsmuir Feebee Mine and BV Parker’s Glorfindel Deacon Brodie Sh.CM. Barnum went on to take Terrier G3 and also won the Good Citizens Stakes. Aurora went on to win puppy G4 and was second in minor puppy stakes. Deacon Brodie was then shortlisted in the Veteran Group. A fantastic day for Skye’s congratulations to all.

As most of you are probably aware Skye’s do not have classes at City of Birmingham. The breed was however well represented by Cath Parker and Jane Curtis. Glorfindel Deacon Brodie was awarded 1st in AVNSC Terrier Veteran Dog, Ch Brakemill Barnum was 3rd in AVNSC Terrier open and Veramamicus Aurora of Brakemill was Best AVNSC Terrier Puppy. The AVNSC Terrier judge was Rachel Barney. Paul Wilkinson judged the Terrier puppy Group and awarded Aurora PG1.
Sue Large is still doing the breed proud at the open shows. At Merionetha Agricultural Show Judge Mrs M Marshall awarded Parrima-Arih of my Fantasy is Madaza BPIB followed BY Terrier puppy G4. A few days later at Flint and Deeside open show Eidelweiss Mickey Mouse I’d Madagascar was awarded BOB and Terrier G4 under judge Christine Chapman. Not to be outdone Parrima-Arih of my Fantasy is Madaza was awarded BPIB and PG1. Sue tells me that the show was held at a super venue with a friendly atmosphere. As well as that the catering van was fabulous serving delicious food including scones with clotted cream and jam.
Cheshire Game and Country fair have breed stands for Joe Public to go along and see different breeds and, hopefully, learn about their characteristics etc. This year the stand was manned by Meg Roberts with Skye Sabbath (and 4 cocker spaniels) Jennie and Billy De Leie with Jake and Troy, Ariana Zvezdina and Dmitry Volkovs with Pandora (and Bella a Westie) and Ian and Cath Parker with Brodie. Cath tells me that the weather was not good this year and sadly the show closed early on the Sunday due to torrential rain. Monday however was bright and windy and the crowds soon arrived. All of the dogs were thoroughly spoiled and enjoyed the attention they received which included selfies with Joe Public. Several times a day there was a parade of vulnerable and minority breeds which is a fabulous way to promote said breeds. Cath and Ian have already signed up for next year’s event. Also David Herbert and Bobby are representing the breed at Sandringham Game and Country fair on September 9th.
As many of you know Cath Parker often takes part in the adult handling classes, in the 60+ category, at shows, referred to by many as the geriatric classes. For the fourth year running Cath has qualified for the finals which are held at Birmingham. Cath states that persistence pays off as this year Cath and Brodie were placed 4th in the final. They received a commemorative medal for their achievement.
Anyone interested in the Breed Specific Seminar should be aware that their are only a couple of places left. The seminar is to be held at The Village Hall Over Kellet, Carnforth. Places are £25 each which includes a light lunch. Further information and application forms are available on the club website.
Don’t forget to enter the Skye Terrier photographic competition for the Skye Terrier calendar 2020. The classes are Skye’s having fun,Skye’s in action, precious moments and unusual pose. The competition is free to enter but photographs must be good quality digital images. Further information is on page 4 of the lates newsletter as well as online.

I had a pleasant journey to Builth Wells for the WKC championship show. Unfortunately my arrival at the show was not good. I followed the flow of cars to the car park and duly parked where instructed by the parking attendant; as did a few cars after me. On parking I messaged my daughter to tell her I had arrived safely then proceeded to unload my car. I had finished unloading and was in the process of putting my show trolley together when a parking attendant came over. It seems that they had decided we had been parked in the wrong place and had to move to another area further round. You can imagine how happy I was after unloading everything I then had to reload the car move it then unload again. I’m sure most of you appreciate how heavy show trolleys etc are and so can understand why I was annoyed. There was not even an offer to help me load up again just a don’t be difficult and move!
Mr Colin Powell was our judge for the day. He awarded the following DCC and BOB Curtis’ Ch Brakemill Barnum, RDCC my own Ch Salena The Magnificent One, BCC my own Ch Salena Silver Sapphire, RBCC Curtis’ Ch Brakemill Briar Rose, BV Burscough’s Glorfindel Secret Shadow at Kilfinan and BP Curtis’ Verumamicus Aurora of Brakemill. Congratulations to all.

I have just heard the sad news that Peter Chappell (Marquita) has passed away. Peter had fought a brave battle with cancer for sometime. My sincere condolences go to Peter’s partner Allan Stephenson. I do not have any further information at present

Skye’s are certainly doing well at the open shows at present, which is great news for the breed. First is news from Sue Large, Sue has really been waving the Skye flag in recent weeks. This time at, a well attended, Preston and District Canine Society Parrima-Arih Universe of my Fantasy is Madaza (Fenya) was Best AVNSC Terrier and then went on to win Terrier Puppy Group 4. The judge was Carmel Clarke-O’Neil.

Following an appeal for entries at Kirkcaldy open show Cathie and George McLeod gave their support, even though it meant a 4 hour round trip. The trip was definitely worth it however as they had a wonderful day. Juger Eidelweiss Me Myself and I at Esgia (Seoras) was Best AVNSC and Best Terrier. Not to be out done Esgia Glen Garioch (Callum) was first in AV Special Puppy and went on to be Reserve Best Special Puppy in Show. Cathie says that it was a great day out and the Skye’s were certainly noticed, which is of course good for the breed.
Congratulations to all.

Mrs Brenda Brown awarded CC’s for the first time at Paignton. Her principle winners were: DCC and BOB Curtis’ Ch Brakemill Barnum, RDCC Large’s Juger Eidelweiss Mickey Mouse is Madaza (Imp), BCC my own Ch Salena Silver Sapphire, RBCC Curtis’s Ch Brakemill Briar Rose and BP Large’s Parrima-arih Universe of my Fantasy is Madaza (Imp). Congratulations to all.

Sue Large attended Pickering Lithuania Agricultural Society show on 31 July. She was delighted when Fenya (Parrima-Arih Universe of my Fantasy was awarded Best AV Terrier puppy under Judge Margaret Masterman. Sue says, however, that due to a change in KC rules she was not allowed to compete for BPIS as AV classes are no longer allowed to go forward, it must be from AVNSC. This is something that Sue was unaware of, as was I, and thinks that on reflection it should be in the schedule. Sue adds however that it was still a very enjoyable show and lovely to walk around the agricultural area.

The weather at Leeds came as quite a shock. After weeks of glorious sunshine without any rain the heavens opened. The rain refused to let up and I for one actually felt cold. I did feel sorry for the stall holders as so few people ventured out from the shelter of the tents to go shopping.
Francis Carlton was our judge and she awarded the following: DCC and BOB Curtis’ Ch Brakemill Barnum, RDCC my own Ch Salena The Magnificent One, BCC Burscough’s Glorfindel Shadow Wings at KIlfinnan, RBCC Dunlop’s Kometa Rossi Cinderella, BP Large’s Parrima-arih Universe of my fantasy is Madagascar and BV Burscough’s Glorfindel Secret Shadow at Kilfinan. Secret Shadow also took Veteran group 3 under Judge Derek Smith. Congratulations to all.

There doesn’t seem to be a lot of news in the Skye world at present. I do however have some news from Sue Large. Sue says that she had a fabulous day at Bakewell show where Parrima-Arih Universe of my Fantasy is Madaza (Fenya) was awarded Terrier Puppy G1. If that wasn’t enough Juger Eidelweiss Mickey Mouse is Madaza (Mickey) went Terrier G3. The judge was Sonya Saxon y. Sue says that the committee of Bakewell show should be congratulated for holding such a friendly well run show.
On Sunday at Tonge & District Open Show Cath Parker’s Glorfindel Deacon Brodie SHCM made his debut in veteran. He won the AV Terrier Veteran and later in the day added a 1st place in the AV Veteran Stakes (winning dog food, coconut oil and a £20 voucher for Farm Foods) along with an impressive rosette. Tweedsmuir Feebee Mine did her bit, winning Best AVNSC Terrier and Group 2 along with a 2nd in the AV Qualified for Crufts Post Grad Stakes.

Jeff Luscott judged the breed, without CC’s, at East of England he awarded the following. BD and BOB Curtis’s Ch Brakemill Barnum, RBD my own Ch Salena The Magnificent One, BB Curtis’s Verumamicus Aurora of Brakemill, Dunlop’s RBB Kometa Rossi Cinderella and BP Curtis’s Verumamicus Aurora of Brakemill. Ch Brakemill Barnum also took G4 under Sheila Goodwin and Verumamicus Aurora at Brakemill took PG4 under Glen Davies. Congratulations to all.
I note that on Facebook there has been a lot of talk with regard to dogs left in cars at shows; including East of England. I can understand the sheer stupidity and lack of feeling that makes people do such things. The weather has been so hot in recent weeks I cannot imagine why people would think it was acceptable to leave their dogs. I felt absolutely awful when travelling to East of England as I had no choice but to leave my dog in the car for just over 10minutes. I can hear you all thinking that I am awful and shouldn’t be writing about others, but this case was exceptional. I was around 15 miles from the show ground when the car in front of me, for no apparent reason, veered across the road and down the embankment landing on its side. I immediately knew I had to stop and help, as did the car behind me. There was an elderly couple in the car with, I imagine twins of around 18 months. We managed to get the car door open and get the lady and children out. We could not get the gentleman out, he was conscious but obviously in shock and trapped. All of the time I was helping these people I was worried sick about my dog. I had travelled with the air conditioning on so the car was cool when I stopped but I knew how quickly the temperature would rise. As soon as other people, including a paramedic, arrived I told them I had to go. I was sick with worry even though my car was only 10 yards away from the incident. As soon as I got in the car I checked that Jose was ok, thankfully he was. Even though I know that I had to help the people in the car I was so very upset, and felt awful that I had to leave my dog In my car. I cannot understand how anyone would deliberately take their dogs out in the car and then leave them in it. It is irresponsible and cruel.

The weather on Terrier day at Blackpool was beautiful. Clear blue sky and the sun was shining. Having said that there was a sudden tornado like shift in the weather for a mi ute or two. Suddenly parasols flew high into the air closely followed by some poor stewards paper work and prize cards! The atmosphere at the show was friendly with a few of us enjoying sitting in the sunshine chatting with a cold beer in hand. Mr. Bert Easton was awarding CC’s in the breed for the first time. He awarded the following: DCC and Best of Breed my wonderful Ch Salena The Magnificent One, RDCC McLeods Juger Eidelweiss Me Myself and I at Esgia (Imp EST), BCC Miller and Evans Feorlig Romantica, RBCC Pringles Esgia Shula Freya TAF, BP Pringles Esgia The Excise Man and BJ McKenzie and Scott’s Bearrerraig Rubha Sughar at Borcho. Curtis’s Ch Brakemill Barnum was placed first in the Fossedata open stakes under judge Mrs Sue Searle. Congratulations to all.
Thank you to Jenny Kendrick for the following information.
Here you go.🙂

The Draught Excluders were out for their 2nd ever competition yesterday at a very well organised Obedience show run by Solihull dog training club. The weather was glorious and the atmosphere around the Obreedience ring was friendly and supportive, it was a pleasure to be there. The Skye’s attracted a lot of attention and there were several comments about how wonderful it was to see a team of Skye’s. I am very pleased to say that our team worked well, although not finishing in the top places we were not bottom either. The object of the day was to have fun & get the breed noticed, both of which were achieved. The judge & steward were very impressed with the dogs and couldn’t help smiling as we went through our set exercises. I have to say Pasha did a most unusual present after retrieving his dumbell, he returned to me, went into the down position & stuck his back legs out in a stretch wagging his tail much to the delight of all around including the judge! An excellent day and lots of lovely comments about our team on the Obreedience FB page. Name check for the Skyes taking part Donald, Murray, Lucy & Pasha.
Many thanks to all who take part in these events. It really is a great way to have fun with your dogs and promote our breed.
