I am advised that we will have a new show team hitting the ring at Sunderland on 16th December, good luck & remember, you are there to enjoy it! Schedules are now out for Northern Counties Sporting Terrier on 15th March, to be held at West Cornforth (home of the Get Together). Breed specialist judge for Bedlingtons, Alan Vernall. Its the ruby Anniversary show, so plenty of rosettes up for grabs in the classes. We are spoilt for choice for shows scheduling Bedlingtons in February in the North East with breed specialist judges featuring at 3 shows, hopefully they will receive good entries, from the area & possibly others from further afield? The next North East get together is now scheduled for 13th January, pop the date into your diary.This will be the 8th such event.
Suggestion: How about sharing the Thursday North East update around? Different people in the North East could write articles? If you are interested, let Lesley know.
An old man, a boy & a donkey were going to town. The boy rode on the donkey & the old man walked. As they went along they passed some people who remarked it was a shame the old man was walking & the boy was riding.The man & boy thought maybe the critics were right, so they changed positions. Later, they passed some people that remarked, 'What a shame, he makes that little boy walk'!.They then decided they both would walk! Soon they passed some more people who thought they were stupid to walk when they had a decent donkey to ride. So, they both rode the donkey.Now they passed some people that shamed them by saying how awful to put such a load on a poor donkey. The boy & man said they were probably right, so they decide to carry the donkey. As they crossed the bridge, they lost their grip on the animal & he fell into the river and drowned.
The moral of the story? If you try to please everyone, you might as well...
Kiss your ass goodbye! Have A Nice Day & Be Careful With Your Donkey.

At ring craft he had his usual mad 5 minutes at the start then he settled down and the penny seemed to drop, he was finally going straight up and down the mats even when he was an inch or two away from the other dogs, he was also standing nicely to finish which is good news as we are showing him on the 6th January. It was good to see Pat with Larry there. Larry seemed to be enjoying himself.
We looked after Larry Friday evening both dogs as usual got on very well but Larry missed Pat a little. My Dad is teaching me to groom Jack and hopefully one day I will start to clip him. Jack stands really well and lets me brush him although he doesn't like his front feet being touched.
Today was the 150th anniversary show of the Cleveland Dog Society.
182 classes, 549 dogs, making 775 entries.
£2,500 worth of Waterford crystal up for grabs.

AVNSC Terrier Open, BOB AVNSC Terrier, Group 1 Terrier, BIS.
An extremely nice piece (& expensive) of Waterford Crystal, now has pride of place in the Walshaw household!
Mr Ellis Hulme, judged Terriers & BIS.
Congratulations Mark, you must be over the moon, what an impressive season this little dog is having, well done!
Unfortunately everyone else was absent apart from Christine Slatcher. There was only an Open class for Bedlingtons so Christine had to ask her daughter, Shelley, and son Jay to handle as well. Jay also took part in Junior Handling and again was the only one present but he didn't mind as he won some chocolates!
The results were:-
1) Bluesmurf Pure Genius BOB
2) Lilymist Skye Blue at Bluesmurf
3) Mollora Escapade at Bluesmurf
The judge was Mr Scawthorne (Saredon)
Many thanks to Christine for the results, I hope Jay is sharing his chocolates.

Working long hours but took Morris out beating last week, not much better than normal, keen on anything furry but still indifferent to feathered game. Not much use on a pheasant and duck shoot but he fills a gap in the beaters line. We're getting geared up for LKA, the last chance for serious canine shopping before Christmas. We're first in the ring at 09-30 so there should be plenty of shopping time afterwards. It's interesting that a number of Bedlingtons are still in the hunt for Top dog this year and LKA will decide who comes out on top. Gives the competition that bit of extra edge. It should be fun.

Very wet & cold in the North East today, we've just come in from walking the dogs (1930 hours) & starting to thaw out. The weather forecast for the next few days are no better.
Busy day for the post man at our house this morning, with lots of 'Bedlington' post, in addition to the usual bills & junk mail. Received entry passes for LKA (I always begin to have a bit of a flap if someone advise me that they have received them & I haven't), details for the Bedlington of the Year event to be held at Tollerton, received some stickers I had ordered off the Internet from America (delighted with them for the cost), received my CC certificate from the KC (from Midland Counties) & finally 'dog wise' my copy of Dogs World. It took me about 20 minutes to scan the pages, therefore costs must work out at 10p / minute.
Busy weekend in the North East, with shows taking place on both Saturday & Sunday, hopefully we should get some snaps to share.
Anyone wishing to go for a meal & knees up, as organised by the North East Get together should get in touch with Dawn Bussey, pronto, to book your place.
I am looking forward to the LKA, the last Champ Show of the season at the NEC, I began last night writing out the list of things I need to buy, so trade stands beware, I will be in haggling mood for those bargains!

No classes for Bedlingtons, however Mark has M entered in AV Terrier NSC Open.
All top international judges, with Mr Ellis Hulme doing Terrier group & BIS (£2,500 worth of crystal to be won!).
At ringcraft, Jack wasn't himself, he had an upset tummy Tuesday and just didnt want to be there Thursday evening, he just didn't perform. His best frend Larry came along to ring craft for the first time and we met up with Oscar, it was lovely to see three bedlingtons together. We think Larry enjoyed himself and Pat says she will take him again. It was Jack's birthday on Friday, we brought him a new chewy bone and he had a chocolate brownie with a candle in. He really enjoyed it and had a good day. It doesnt seem like a year since we have had jack he has fitted so well into our family.
Ralphie ,Larry and the two Jacks met up on Saturday, we had a lovely walk on the beach although the weather wasn't too good. The dogs got on well, Jack, Ralphie and Larry were play fighting and running all over the beach, a good time was had by all.
