NORWEGIAN BUHUNDS As we all know Crufts went ahead as planned. I expect when the final attendance figures are in they will be down, which is only to be expected and not helped by the fact that Mars, pulled out their Royal Canin and James Wellbeloved stands just 48hrs before the show was due to […]

NORWEGIAN BUHUNDS Crufts is almost here, somehow in spite of all the adverts for it, suddenly it seems to be here. Then, once it is over the Ch show season will soon get into full swing. Before that there are open shows taking place with Buhunds classes, and I am happy to say with successes […]

NORWEGIAN BUHUNDS Rather sad notes this week as on 31st January Gail Hussey died, after a short stay in hospital. It was such a shock for everyone who knew her, especially the Buhund community as she had judged us only 7 weeks earlier at LKA. This was her seventh time of giving CCs in the […]
