I am sure you all know that to celebrate its 150th Birthday 1873 -2023 the Chairman of the Kennel Club ,Tony Allcock OBE announced that “We are honoured that as of the 4th April The Kennel Club has been granted a Royal Prefix, so will now be called The Royal Kennel Club.”
I hope you all had a good Easter weekend whether you stayed at home, went out for a day, or perhaps went away for the long weekend. For those that show the show scene is about to get into full swing. The first Ch show with classes is Working and Pastoral Breeds of Wales at Builth Wells on Saturday 15th April, which I know several of you will be going to, so good luck and enjoy the judge is Grahame Hill. The next one is Welks on April 29th with Val Dyer JP judging.
The Spring Bu News is out and is winging its way to members, many thanks to Lillian for another great publication, if you have not received your copy in the next week, do let us know. There will be another Bu news in the Autumn, and it is never too early to send Lillian articles or photographs for the next issue.

Sue Crocker was second top breeder with Noodle and Kumar.
Good news we have had 4 clear eye tests. These clear eye tests are so important as until we have a DNA test for HC, we have to assume all dogs are carriers, and therefore sadly we will have an affected pop up occasionally. The dogs were Sue Crocker’s Knytshall Noor Ul Ain by Knytshall Diamond Ted x Ch Trollheimen Elske To Knytshall (Imp USA). Leggatts Voulez Vous (Tissy) by Frostisen Winsome IKC x Noor Leggatts Jive Talkin( Noodle) by Sturtmoor Floki x Tissy and Mary Dosson’s Kligenthal Bran Mak Morn (Teddy)by Ch Arnscroft Di Na Mo Farrah Of Koromandel JW ShCM x Ch Koromandel Gild The Lily.(Hildy)
