Bilbo is 14 today!

Our little Bilbo turned 14 today and was rather bemused by his gifts 😁 He has always loved chasing balls but since he had cruciate ligament surgery a few years’ ago he has had to be restricted on playing with balls.  So one of his presents was a large soft football to play with which he enjoyed chasing as well as chewing and shaking – it is still intact but will have to be kept […]

Discover Dogs – Crufts 2018

A busy time on the Lancashire Heeler stand at Discover Dogs at Crufts this year.   Lots of interest in our vulnerable native breed as well as all the other wonderful breeds in the halls.  I think we all lost our voices after spending a day on the stand talking Heelers. The dogs all behaved impeccably and certainly were the star attractions!        

Wiltshire Game Fair – September 2017

We attended the Wiltshire Game Fair again which takes place in the beautiful grounds of Bowood House, Calne.  We have our own marquee within The World of Dogs area and enjoy meeting members of the public and chatting about Heelers all weekend!  We love to have other Heeler owners or dog lovers coming to help us and can offer unlimited teas and coffees, biscuits, cake, etc plus free entry and parking to the event.  It was a […]

Border Union Championship Dog Show – June 2017

On an extremely hot, sunny day we went to the Border Union Championship Dog Show at Kelso where we showed the dogs under judge Keith Baldwin.  We were thrilled to bits when Bilbo (Ch Rosepip Beau Brummell ShCM) won the Dog Challenge Certificate from the Veteran Dog class,  Dora (Madincrowd Bathsheba JW) got the Reserve Bitch Challenge Certificate from Limit Bitch and Pickle (Rosepip Neteret Eset) was 2nd in Open Bitch.   The judge was very informative […]

Crufts & Discover Dogs 2016

We did our stint helping out at Discover Dogs, which was extremely busy and full on, so much so that Stephen lost his voice by Saturday!  All the dogs did a sterling job of being petted, admired and photographed and Dora and I were asked to take part in a Ringcraft demonstration in one of the rings alongside – and she behaved impeccably for once! The following day we did our showing under judge Val […]

Bilbo goes Speed Dating at the Kennel Club!

Having recently had puppies and being Assured Breeders, the Kennel Club invited our Heelers to a Speed Dating event on 18 September 2015 where members of the public and press were introduced to several different breeds of dogs to match them up! As our puppies had recently gone to their new homes and Dora was in season, it was down to Bilbo and me to travel by train up to London, then across town by […]

Bilbo is a Champion!

Bilbo got his third Challenge Certificate under Anne Arch at City of Birmingham Champ Show on 30 August 2014 and becomes a Champion – we always believed in him and were over the moon – our first ever show dog and he gets this far with us novices, so it just goes to prove that anyone with faith can do it! To top it all, Pickle got the Reserve CC and Dora came 2nd in PB.

Dora goes Best of Breed at Bournemouth Champ Show 2014

Thrilled with Dora who went Best of Breed and Best Puppy at the Bournemouth Champ Show today, 10.8.2014, with Uncle Bilbo getting the Reserve Best Dog.  Poor little soul was exhausted by the end of a long hot day and was flagging by the time she had to be rushed from one Group to another, spending most of the time lying down and refusing to get up!  Hey ho, that’s our Dora! We had the […]
