Posted on: June 1st, 2020

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 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 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 […]

NORWEGIAN BUHUNDS I am sure many of you will have heard of Buhunds doing Barn Hunts in the US. The sport is based on the hunting team work where rat catchers and their dogs used to travel the country side, ridding farms of the  vermin which we all know can cause a  great deal of […]
