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

The Foxhound – The First British Pedigree

When I was a child I used to long for the school summer holidays as it often meant escaping down to Midhurst in West Sussex and staying on my Aunt’s family farm. Her uncle was Master of one of the local packs (kennelled on the farm) and I loved watching these beautiful hounds being fed… read more

THE KENNEL Club was forced to swing into damage-limiting action after the German Shepherd best of breed at Crufts attracted widespread criticism.
