In light of recent theft of a dog at a dog show it got me thinking if that happened to me or indeed they managed to escape. We all know our dogs are microchipped but no use if the chip details and the contact number for Petlog are at home as you need to contact them immediately it happens. Probably most of you have thought about it but I have now got all my dogs details and contact numbers on a card that I will carry with me in future and the numbers stored in my phone.

Have to say the weather made for a horrendous walk from the car park arriving soaking wet and frozen. I think on the day we saw all weather from rain, hail, snow and bright sunshine, so strange. It was good to see so many overseas visitors and competitors and the atmosphere was lovely ringside.

First in the ring at 9.00am at Driffield, it was a very cold start, but thankfully the high winds and rain had subsided for toy day, a shame for all societies when the weather isn’t kind and understandable that some exhibitors wont chance the journey, which is sensible when the forecast is bad.

BREED NOTES 09/09/18
LOWCHEN (LITTLE LION DOG)

At City Of Birmingham once again the weather was good though we were inside the rings were ample and carpeted and I have to say the grids underneath more favourable than those at the NEC. I think the main problems were the postcode which many struggled with, we went round in circles and ended up putting places of interest rather than the postcode in the sat nav and finally got there. The other was wasps there were hundreds, some dogs getting stung including the Lowchen BOB which stopped him showing in the group, thankfully Benny was treated and is fine, but such a scary thing to happen for anyone and so unpleasant for the boy. Judge was Bert Easdon, awarding CC’s for the first time in the breed. From an entry of 31 with 5 absent he awarded DCC & BOB to Ch Yardley Noblesa Aura (ImpCz) owned by Trish Neal & Kelli Sampson and bred by Paula Pavlickova (Int Ch Chico Noblesa Aura x Kerryken Keira)
BCC was awarded to Jamaneli Simply Divine, her second, owned by Fiona Moore and bred by Joanne Graham (Ch Jamaneli Cream Craicer x Paceway Pickpocket) RDCC & BP was awarded to Jamaneli Whirlwind owned and bred by Joanne Graham (Ch Jamaneli Cream Craicer x Paceway Pickpocket) RBCC was awarded to Golbourne Gosh Im Posh owned and bred by Ken & Richard Morgan-Stanley (Golbourne Chic N Dandy x Golbourne Black Opium)
Best Veteran was Bundu Callipygian owned and bred by Alison Bush and Best Junior was Teejay Struck Gold owned by Kathy Bryan and bred by Jean Mansell.
Huge congratulations to Alison Bush and the Bundu team who had a super day at Richmond Show. No CC’s for the breed on offer but Bundu Timeless was BB and BOB, Bundu Remember me BP and Bundu Callipygian RBOB & BV who went on to win the Toy Veteran Group !
A great achievement for Alison and the breed to be in a final line up for BVIS. Very well done Alison and Pyg who showed her socks off in the final at 10 years and 4 months.
Entries close for Midland Counties on 17th September no CC’s for the breed, judge Joe Jolley.

LOWCHEN (LITTLE LION DOG)

Hopefully everyone has recovered from Crufts and survived the dreadful weather we have all had, some much worse than others. Thankfully Toy Day at Crufts, for us, saw good weather which always makes the hike from the car parks so much more bearable. There was a great atmosphere around the Lowchen benching and a few parties going on, with plenty of cake and it’s always good to see overseas visitors and friends enjoying this day together. Lots of spectators ringside and much enthusiasm and support for the exhibitors, which is always good to see. Judge Annette Oliver awarded the DCC and BOB to Ch Broevans Legend Of The Hero owned and bred by Steve Brown (Ch Broevans Unspolit Hero x Ch Broevans Just For Fun) BCC was awarded to Ch/Fin Ch Gwaihirs Siofra Estelle Via Hollinsclose (Imp Fin) owned by Dawn & Zoe Richardson and Bred By Lena & Joanna Lemberg (Ch/Int Ch Hollinsclose Barricade x Int Ch Gwaihirs Hadiya Belle)
