Just home from the excellent Tibetan Terrier World Congress in Agnetz, Paris, France.

It was super to meet old friends and new. We had a most enjoyable stay, so much sharing of knowledge and on the lighter side there was plenty of craic and banter with a lovely bunch of like-minded people sharing our passion.  Like bold school children, some of us had to be sent to bed at night by the good humoured manager lol.

Thank you so much to Lydia Estru and her hardworking team, and thank you to all the speakers.

I am always keen to learn something new, and am never disappointed.

  I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude to Anna Rogowska, for allowing me the honour to judge at the two day International Show in Rzeszów, Poland. I thoroughly enjoyed my Group 5 breeds on Saturday (sunny, warm and windy), and my Group 9 breeds on Sunday (very cold, wet  and windy). My Group Winners were the Shih Tzu Group 1, Lhasa Apso Group 2, Havanese Group 3, and Tibetan Terrier Group 4. Unfortunately I don’t have any photos of my Group 5, and only a couple for Group 9, but I had very many beautiful dogs, and I thank the exhibitors not only for bringing their dogs for my appraisal, but also the way in which they accepted my decisions. I feel very privileged to have met my fellow judges who were friendly and welcoming, but special thanks to Martin Johansson (BIS Judge), Dragan Babic, Wieslawa Misterka, and Dr Anna Albrigo; all of whom took great care of my comfort and wellbeing. They were also great craic and kept me entertained too. I enjoyed my trip very very much. Lest I forget, I was delighted to judge my beloved breed, the Tibetan Terrier, and was excited with my BOB and Group 4 male, only a youngster, but was shown and presented to perfection.

Mid West Canine Club All Breed Championship Show
  I extend my heartfelt thanks to Myles and all the hardworking committee of Mid West Canine Club Championship Show, for affording me the opportunity to judge Group 2 breeds. Their hospitality was warm and welcoming. I had a thoroughly enjoyable day, with many very beautiful exhibits, and would also like to thank the exhibitors for placing their trust in me.  It was a nice prod to get me back to showing after my hibernation during the Covid Pandemic!                               My Best of Breed Bullmastiff  



   

Description: 🚨Description: 🚨IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT Description: 🚨Description: 🚨

Any dog owners - there’s a bad virus going round at the moment, reading about it non stop. Vets are putting out advice as it’s spreading really fast and they’re seeing an advanced amount of admissions.

Try stay away from parks, don’t let your dog drink outside water, puddles etc and not to sniff Description: 💩. And clean your dogs paws after every walk in case they’ve walked in the virus then catch it when cleaning themselves Description: 🥺

This is from a vet Description: 👇

Vets are reporting higher than usual occurrences of gastroenteritis in dogs which is fitting with a wider phenomenon as reported by The Small Animal Veterinary Surveillance Network (SAVSNET). So far we have found that the cases seen- whilst clearly being poorly- have responded well to treatment.

The British Veterinary Association (BVA) advise that with prompt veterinary treatment almost all dogs make a full recovery from this uncommonly violent gastric bug.

How Is This Vomiting Bug Different?

According to Vet Dr Danielle Greenberg of SAVSNET, this vomiting bug is unusual due to:

Prolific vomiting of 5 or more episodes in a 12 hour period which can stop for a period (such as overnight) and then starts again

Dogs are often unable to keep water down at peak vomiting stage

Anorexia and lethargy for 2-5 days

Diarrhoea: Most dogs have ‘gravy-like’ diarrhoea

Full recovery can take 5-10 days

What We Know So Far:

This outbreak is affecting areas across the Midlands, Wales, the North of England and Northern Ireland

The illness is most likely a virus but has not yet been identified.

Seems to be dog-specific, thankfully humans don’t appear to be at risk.

This is not caused by Parvo or Salmonella
