Burghley Game Fair 2019

Stephen took Bilbo & Pickle up to Burghley for the Living Heritage Game & Country Fair on the last May Bank Holiday weekend.  He met up with son David and family who brought along their campervan.  I stayed at home with Dora and the puppies and had various friends staying or visiting so it was good for Stephen to have the company and help! Our thanks also go to Carole Beaumont, her husband and Ella […]

Game Fairs 2019

The year is passing so quickly and once again the Game Fairs are upon us with the May Bank Holidays approaching fast!  We had a wonderful time last year going around the country attending all the Living Heritage Game Fairs.  However this year Netley and Essex Game Fairs have been dropped mainly due to the weather last year which was too hot at Netley and too wet and cold at Essex.  So hoping this year will […]

Hampshire Country Show – May 2018

It was a blisteringly hot couple of days at the Hampshire Country Show on 6-7 May 2018 – quite the opposite to Thame a month ago! Everyone was feeling the heat and we had taken our cool coats for the dogs which they wore all day long.  Many people were asking why our dogs were wearing coats in the heat and were surprised when touching them how cool and refreshing they were – we were […]

Weather forecast for the Thame Game Fair over the Easter Bank holiday weekend was not good, but after a ground check on Saturday it was all on for Sunday.  Rather than take the caravan and get stuck in mud – or snow – we got up early Sunday morning to set up first thing.  It was very chilly but the weather was dry and all the activities were able to take place, it was very […]

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 […]

Bowood Dog Show 18 & 19 June 2016

After reading a letter in one of the Dog papers it sparked an interest in trying to get a stand to promote our breed at the Living Heritage Country Fairs.  We were offered a stand at the Bowood Dog Show in Wiltshire so we sorted out some banners and our friend Jean sewed an amazing Heeler bunting to decorate the marquee with. We had a very enjoyable and busy weekend chatting about Heelers to everyone […]
