Chihuahua Breed Notes 08/01/19
How are we all this week in Chihuahua Town? Back to normal after the festivities? I know my gang go a bit stir crazy over the holiday period; getting thoroughly over excited with all the extra visitors, so they’re all glad of the rest now it’s all over.
The Top Dog and Top Puppy awards were announced in last week’s edition of another canine newspaper, so for any of you who haven’t seen it, the Top L/C is Ch Dorenty’s Viva Vienna JW and Top S/C is Ch Copymear Calendar By JW. Top L/C Puppy is Rushwarden’s Ultra Violet of Tidos and Top S/C Puppy is Diamonchi Mister Moon. Well done to all the dogs and their loving servants.
Last weekend was Boston (no tickets in either coat), with both coats judged by Meriel Taylor. Results for Longs are: BD and BOB Hornby and Bird’s Ch Bramerita Sherlock Holmes, RBD Tony Allcock’s Sandiman Last Tango in Paris Sleepyhollow JW, BB Shelda Hornby’s Ch Torre Del Pilar Shelda’s At Bramerita, RBB Breeze Hilton’s Hermosoangel Shine For Me, BP Geoffrey Curr’s Natimuk Asta and BSpecBeg Paula Hunter’s Twiganlu I Am Groot.

Manchester is next week with a great entry: Longs have 146 dogs making 151 entries and smooths 131 dogs making 138 entries.
Crufts postal entries have closed and online entries are closing just after Manchester, so don’t forget to get your entries in.
Some Chihuahua Agility news – Naomi Hosker’s Skye has finished the year by winning out of Grade 4 and in to Grade 6 and came 3rd in the Agility Club Novice Final. It’s rare to see a toy breed running in the higher grades, so Naomi and Skye’s wins this year are huge achievement for our tiny breed.
Some open show results: At Heywood and Radcliffe on 6 January, in longs, Lee Humphrey’s Amarantos Nicole took BPIB and PG2 and Sharon Hughes’ Trefnanney Prudence won the AV Veteran Stakes. At the same show, in the smooths, Rose Lovric’s Lovchi Dripping in Finesse won the Puppy Class and BPIB.
I’ve no news from the Irish shows this week.
The Chihuahua Club of South Wales have their AGM on Sunday 13 January, 2.30pm at Neath Sports Centre, SA10 7BR. For any enquiries email John Green on email@example.com.
I’ve just been watching yet more news on Brexit. I’ve managed to avoid mentioning it, but I did start to wonder how it will affect our Mexican, non-British breed? Perhaps we need a new wooferendum? Maybe we need to get our tiny dudes dual nationality?
Send me all your news for this week, open show wins, general Chihuahua news or musings (makes a change from mine!), and have a great week!
