Many Congratulations to Sandra Bathea with CH Sangeo FarScape ( Talyn) who is the top USA Bedlington of 2006. Talyn has 17 Titles in Conformation, Obedience, Rally and Agility. Talyn was top Bedlington terrier in breed points in 2003, and in 2006 is top Bedlington in both breed and group ratings. Talyn has just broke into the the USA 20 top terriers with the last few BIS and group placement wins. This wonderful dog has shown just how talented and versatile the breed is, not only in the show ring but all spheres of performance events.

Many thanks goes to Sandra for this very special photo

We had a lovely day today when Carmel and Brian came to visit their little boy "Burmington Baton Rouge" ( Jazz ). I think they are going to have their hands full with this little guy. Jazz is a playful adorable bundle of mischief!

We don't get many afternoons like this in December not a cloud in the sky and almost spring like in temperature. The low sun casts wonderful shadows over the countryside! This is Parker enjoying his afternoon romp across the field.

Many congratulations to Christine Slatcher and her bitch Indi, (Mollora Escapade at Bluesmurf), who won best of breed at Manchester Sporting Terrier last Sunday. She was pulled out to make up the final six to be judged for best in show. What a fantastic day for Indi, such a boost to the breed to make the final cut. Thank you so much Christine for sending through the photo, and very well done!

What a pretty boy! Thank you Patricia for this lovely photo of Larry.

Nothing much happening this weekend but not long now until LKA. This is one of my favourite shows with so many stalls selling just about everything you need and don't need for your dog. I try to stick to my shopping list but it so hard. With Christmas just around the corner and the electric atmosphere of the show it is so easy to get carried away and spend more than you budgeted. Mind you, you might regret having to carry all those parcels and packets of dog food back to the car park!

What lovely surprise when these balloons turned up on the doorstep. Thank you to Auntie Sandra for such a special present, I am so proud of my boys!

Ain't she beautiful!

We have just had our Renault van customised by new paint colour co-ordinated bumpers and trimmings, and smart new wheel trims. I think the dogs approve! I just need Parker's photo on the side to complete the picure.

Pot bellied bedlington!
It is an exciting time only a few days to go until Diesel has her puppies. I am guessing she is carrying about four babies, what do you think ?

What a great weekend! Parker was entered today at the Coventry (Foleshill) Canine Society Association show. Parker won the AVNSC open class, he went on to win the best AVNSC and finally took group 3 in the Terrier Group. My dogs certainly deserve special treats with agility success yesterday and Parker's group 3 today!

04 November 2006

The girls were entered today at the UK Agility Steeplechase trial at Cheltenham racecourse. I woke up at 5am this morning to a temperature of minus six degrees and nearly decided to stay in bed! Cold it might have been but the girls did not seem to mind and were eager to get on the road. We arrived at 0730am and I walked the course which was still covered in a white frost.
I was so pleased we decided to go as the girls ran really well. In the first competition both Chelsea and Fudge ran clear rounds with Chelsea gaining a second place and Fudge third. In the second competition again both dogs ran clear rounds with Chelsea finishing third and Fudge fourth.

I was given a copy of this book yesterday and I feel sure this would be invaluable to many who are perhaps new owners or are thinking of having a Bedlington Terrier. This is a very informative book written by Murial Lee. It covers all aspects of the breed and goes into detail on the history, characteristics, breed standard, everyday care, training, health care, the senior dog and showing. The 156 pages are filled with photographs, diagrams and valuable all round information on the Bedlington Terrier.

You can order this book in any local book shop in the high Street , the ISBN number is 1-903098-85-8

Well November the 1st has brought us the first frosty morning, so pretty walking across the fields but we needed our mittens and scarfs. Mind you the dogs don't seem to mind the cold and they were very eager to go on their morning run.

This is a super photograph of my Parker's litter brother Larry. The photo was taken on a beach in Cornwall. My thanks goes to Patricia Chapman.

Stewart Yearley with Ch Lowbrook Llaffan JW ShCM took best of breed at the Midland Counties Canine Society Championship Show today. The Bedlington Terriers were judged by Mrs C Reaston.

Harry who looked stunning, went on to take second place in the terrier group judged by Dr M. Boggia- Black. What a day for the Bedlingtons! Many congratulations Stewart, it is fantastic to see Harry being so highly placed among the top winning terriers. I bet champagne corks are popping tonight!

Brailes village hall.
As you can see this is a wide area, there should be enough room to accommodate grooming tables along the side walls, a walk way and then a row of chairs along the inside edge of the badminton court.

Need a dog friendly caravan? How about this. We had a great day out at the NEC Caravan and Motorhome Show. Unfortunately, not many manufacturers cater for the multiple dog owner but our choice of new van would be the Adria 452 with a garage box, an ideal space for several dogs. This caravan has two raised fixed single beds which allows for a large storage area underneath. The downside to this van was the tiny shower and combined toilet, but at the end of the day having a designated dog area inside the caravan is a real bonus. All European caravans felt bright and airy with modern interiors and clever lighting.

This is a photo of our local village hall at Brailes, as you can see this is a good sized hall with a generous car parking area. There is a large kitchen and another area that could be used for grooming. Another bonus to this venue is a large camping field with a wooden pavilion housing a cloakroom and showers. Perhaps this is an ideal place for one of the Bedlington Clubs to host their shows. Brailes is about 12 miles west of Banbury which lies on the M40 and is about 20 miles south of Birmingham. What do you think?
