Chihuahua Breed Notes 23/09/2018
Well, it has certainly been a blustery week in Chihuahua Town! This week saw Storm Ali and we had high winds and torrential winds here. Even my Chis who don’t mind the rain weren’t keen. I hope all your fences survived – fortunately I have brick walls in my garden but my bird table didn’t fare so well…
Autumn is well under way and I love those bright, sunny mornings, which always make me want to get out and about with the dogs. A few weeks ago I found a private field for hire so have been taking all the dogs there where I can let them off lead without the fear of the numpty dog owners with their off lead dogs who are not under control.
Last weekend was Darlington. Longs were judged by Dr A Paloheimo: DCC and BOB was Marie Thorpe’s Ir Ch Idyllium’s Showman, RDCC Jim Culverhouse’s Baby Boom Mano Efektas With Lykath (Imp), BCC Carol Conquest’s Ch Neo Fabulous Captivation At Storyland, RBCC Steve Rooney’s Donami Limelight, BP Jim’s Lykath’s Peep Bo and BV Clive Jones’ Kushira Coconut Ice JW.
Smooths were judged by I Sidgwick: DCC and BOB was Carol Davies’ Ch Dachida’s Johnnie Hot Rocks, RDCC the same owner’s Dachida’s Mr Woo, BCC Davies, Requena and Llamas’ Gibeltarik Bringing The House Down With Dachida’s, RBCC Diane Fothergill’s Diamonchi Shooting Star JW Sh.CM, BP Beverley Sutton’s Jicara Heartbreaker Nikitos and BV the same owner’s Ch Lozek Rhapsody In Blue Nikitos JW.
Entries for SWKA are – longs 65 dogs making 79 entries, smooths 41 dogs making 50 entries. Entries for Belfast are – longs 44 dogs making 48 entries and smooths 15 dogs making 15 entries.
News from the open shows: at Exeter Michelle Poyner’s Diamonchi Diamond Star went BOB and the same owner’s Diamonchi Man On The Moon BPIB, judged by Julie Pike. At Thame and Oxfordshire Jim Culverhouse’s Lykath’s Pepp Bo went BPIB and the same owner’s Baby Boom Mano Efektas With Lykath went BOB. I believe there were some very windy conditions to contend with at that show!
New from the Irish shows: at Banbridge and District Championship Show Francine Kelly’s Sweetpanache Stop ‘n Stare for Frapachi got the GS. The same owner’s Sweetpanache Gift Of Friendship For Frapachi got Best Baby Puppy in Breed. At Carlow All Breed Championship Show, Mary Goode’s Bramvers Canoness By Tampico took the GS and BOB.
Driffield is this weekend so I’ll report on that next week. Following the horrendous weather this week I believe conditions are set to be better for the Toys on Sunday. Keeping fingers and paws crossed!
Entries close tomorrow for Midland Counties so you’ve not got long to enter if you haven’t already.
I don’t currently have any photos for ‘Proud Chihuahua Moments’ so you’re stuck with me this week! Please get sending me your photos for inclusion in next week’s notes otherwise you’ll still be stuck with looking at my face – and no-one wants to be looking at my ugly mug!!!
Good luck to all showing this weekend
