Breed Notes 16th July 2021 Margaret Deuchar


In my notes last week, I told you that on July 4th we had finally manged to have the AGMs for 2020 and 2021.The Agenda for the 2020 AGM had to stand with no alterations as it had been prepared for the 4th April date. Those of you that are members will have received and will have been able to read the various reports. I had the very great honour of being elected as President again for the next 3yrs. There was a discussion instigated by Jacqui Cobb regarding whether the club trophies should only go to club members. After a short discussion with various views being put forward, it was decided that in the unlikely event that a club trophy was won by a non-member, the person should be encouraged to become a member but if this is not possible then they can be given a certificate to say that they had enough points for the trophy, but not actually be awarded the trophy. Jacqui as I am sure you know keeps track of all the trophies and does the lovely laminated award cards when each one is given out.

The proposal to add, ‘Scent awards to the Activity Trophy’ was passed. The meeting closed and the trophies that were won during 2019 were given out.

These awards were rather bitter sweet for Debbie and I as Fizz died at the end of January after a short illness which proved to be stomach cancer.

The last award was the Kitty Heffer Trophy awarded to the person the committee feels has done most for the breed in the previous three years, and that was awarded Lisa Strong who has taken over organising the Discover Dogs Stand.

Once all the awards had been handed out the 2021 AGM began.

The committee was re elected with a slight change in that Nancy Kent will stay on the committee but has stood down as Treasurer with Chris Maynard taking over as Acting Treasurer. As I reported last week Lorraine Bolton was elected unopposed as Chairman.

The proposal ‘That the constitution of the Norwegian Buhund Club of the UK be changed to include a Vice Chairman as one of its officers’, which I proposed and was seconded by Debbie was accepted. This will now go

to the KC for approval so will not come into effect until the 2022 AGM. In the meantime, we can have an acting Vice Chairman from within the existing committee.

The proposal by Lisa Strong and seconded by myself, ‘That the club Should have a Breed Health Survey on Facebook to get an idea of the Health of the Breed World Wide was accepted’. A discussion followed with members saying which health problems they felt should be included. Lorraine had found a company that would

do this, no dog would be identified from the survey and the results would be sent back in graph form. The survey to be on all the Buhund forums with the hope that Buhund owners from all over the world would take part, it has also been sent out to all members, so I do hope that you have all filled it in.

Before the meeting closed the ‘Thank You’ gift that was going to given to Anne was shown to members. Margaret was going to take it to East of England and give it to Anne and hopefully have a photo taken by ‘Our Dogs’ which Jenny had arranged.

There was no catering at the show but most members had brought some lunch with them which they then ate socially distanced in the hall before travelling home to all parts of the UK.

Pastoral Day at East of England was the Sunday and for the first time this year we had Buhunds classes at a Ch show. Our judge was Val Dyer JP. BOB &BB was Lottie. RBB Lesley & Liz Butterworth’s Kormandel Gild The Lily (Hildy) litter sister to Jamie.BD& BOS Time RBD Marie Corin’s  Kligenthal  Almuric by Ch Arnscroft Di Na Mo Farrah of Koromandel x Hildy. (The breeding of these dogs is shown in the AGM awards)

Stay safe everyone.
