Game Fairs 2019

Posted Posted in Game Fair

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 be better! Calling any interested Heeler owners? We are always looking out for Lancashire Heeler owners who would like to come and give a couple […]

Discover Dogs – Crufts 2018

Posted Posted in Crufts, Discover Dogs

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!

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 and when chatting to me about Dora afterwards and asking about her breeding, we realised he had given brother Boris (Ch Madincrowd Gabriel JW) his […]

To top it all, Pickle got the Reserve CC and Dora came 2nd in PB.
