NORWEGIAN BUHUNDS Now that lockdown is easing with a wider area in which you can travel, I start with a warning for those of you that have dogs that love to swim in lakes and ponds. After the recent hot weather high levels of blue-green algae have been reported in many lakes. Algae is totally […]

NORWEGIAN BUHUNDS We are having to get used to the ‘new normal’, whether we will be able to have all dog activities with this we will have to wait and see, with Bournemouth, Blackpool  and SKC still  scheduled to take place later in the year. I had a phone call from my dentist at the […]

NORWEGIAN BUHUNDS While in lockdown like so many people I have been sorting things out. Those of you that are club members will have received your Spring Bu News, in which there is an obituary written by Roger Thomas for Ken Bounden. One of the things I have found is a cutting about the first […]

NORWEGIAN BUHUNDS Still no prospect of having any face to face dog shows safely any time soon, certainly not in the Uk. Depending on how the panademic goes I suppose there might be some smaller shows towards the end of the year, but with the Ch shows they have such a big capital outlay before […]

NORWEGIAN BUHUNDS Yesterday 30th May would have been Pastoral Day at Southern Counties. The show started in 1870 and this is the only time it has been cancelled except during the two World Wars. Last year the Buhund entry was very low, which was sad as over the years the show has done much to […]

NORWEGIAN BUHUNDS With no prospect of any canine activities starting again soon, to help and lift peoples spirits there are a number of good people going above and beyond, by organising on line shows and other activities.

NORWEGIAN BUHUNDS It is Sunday 17th May, last Sunday the Prime Minister announced a slight releasing of the lockdown, but social distancing is still very important. On Wednesday the KC recommended that forth coming events be cancelled until the end of September, based on Government advice to restrict non essential travel and social distancing. I […]

NORWEGIAN BUHUNDS Here we are again another Sunday in lockdown, how much it will  be eased  we will find out this evening when the Prime Minister talks to  the Country, but whatever happens I can’t see any Canine Activities starting soon other than ones being held on line, which is helping to  keep an interest […]

NORWEGIAN BUHUNDS I am writing these notes on Sunday 26th April, when a number of us in normal times would have been at WELKS. Whether we have any shows this year remains too been seen, but at the moment the most important thing is to stay safe, and hope that the scientists find a cure […]

NORWEGIAN BUHUNDS As if we did not have enough to worry about with the Coronavirus, for our Canine friends there have been more reports recently of Alabama Rot, one in a dog that is walked in woods near us, but I know there have also been cases in Scotland recently. The Rot seems to thrive […]

NORWEGIAN BUHUNDS I am writing these notes on Palm Sunday, normally I would have been to church and been given a small Palm, but like everyone else life is so different now. I am sure like me, many of you have friends who think that they either have or have had the virus, some have […]

NORWEGIAN BUHUNDS How are you all? What a couple of weeks it has been, we are in lock down and we have no idea how long it will go on for, but if it helps to save lives that is all that matters. I used to think how quickly the days were going by, but […]

NORWEGIAN BUHUNDS I am writing these notes on 22nd March, Mother’s day and I still find it very difficult to get my head around the fact that just 2weeks ago, I was coming back from Crufts, having spent 2 days there doing Discover Dogs on the Friday, and then the breed the following day. There […]

NORWEGIAN BUHUNDS Not quite sure how to start these notes, back in January at Boston and Manchester Ch shows, Coronavirus was something that was affecting people in China. We could not possibly have imagined that about 10 weeks later it would be impacting so heavily on our lives. Now with the latest guidance from the […]

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 As I write these breed notes Crufts wilI be going ahead, and I hope that when you read them Crufts will have started, and that the Coronavirus will not have accelerated to a point, where large gatherings have to be cancelled or  postponed. Nineteen years ago in 2001 Crufts was postponed not for […]

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 National Working and Pastoral Breeds Society Open Show was held on the Saturday 15th February at Ryton, the day storm Dennis decided to make an appearance. We also had a committee meeting, which meant we could show the dogs and then have a room for the meeting, this works very well boosting entries […]
