The special resolution put to members – seated in the auditorium in London’s Curzon Cinema – was rejected by a close shave, and the General Committee faced some feisty questioning from there on in.   And… read more


Social Media Spoilt by Nastiness

The power of the internet can be a force for good. Many of us have made new friends from all around the world through social media sites. We can share pedigrees and even dogs far more easily than we could previously. News of births – and deaths – can be passed on. Show results are… read more


Black and Floppy Eared Samoyeds

Once again this weekend saw us on our usual ‘house-hunting’ expedition along the south coast ofDevon. For lunch we stopped into the dog friendly Visto Lounge and ordered their Thai green curry.

The Little Skipper

Unusually for me, I’ve never had any personal experience with the Schipperke; no friends or family have ever owned one but their understated but smart looks always manage to catch my eye at shows. It has become de rigueur for the ‘pedigree haters’ to put up grainy shots of individuals in various breeds and whine… read more
