The first day of spring, blue skies and sunshine and looking out of the window, I can still see substantial drifts of snow lingering under the hedges. The old wives tale is that if it lies for more than 3 days, it is waiting on more snow – time will tell if that comes true again and we end up with a white Easter. The dogs have loved this recent cold snap though, especially where it has drifted and throwing snowballs for them to ‘catch’ keeps them occupied for ages!!
Crufts has been the only ‘snow free’ weekend we’ve had in March so far (someone must have friends in high places!) and although BUBA wasn’t too badly affected with the latest snowfall, I understand that the Keeshond Club’s AGM (which was the day after) had a very poor attendance.
Even so, it was still all change at BUBA’s Open show as the scheduled judge for keesies – Penny Roberts (Archaeus) was unable to get to the show as her car broke down on the way to the show. Sue Wilkes (Dakaraikees) who was judging Schipps stepped in as replacement judge for the 8 dogs entered. Best of Breed was George & Sharon Rose’s Ch Rossvale Master of Destiny for Esorkees and Best Puppy was Sue Pattison’s Eastkees Sparkling Diamond.
A reminder that if you are considering applying for the role of Breed Education Coordinator, then you need to get your CV to Ian and Geraldine by next Saturday – 31st March.
