Breed Notes, 13th October 2017
Lynda Bromley kindly sent this report about the eye screening day hosted by Lynda and Martyn
AHT Glaucoma Eye Research Day on October 7th in Herefordshire.
Firstly, thank you to everyone who came and bought their Dandies for DNA swabbing and eye screening. The turnout was brilliant and although we had a couple of cancellations, James Oliver was delighted to be able to add 23 over 5 year old Dandies to the current research project. Along with visitors including 2 adorable puppies and Daisy who is blind through Glaucoma, there were 30 Dandies in attendance. The sun shone and it became a Dandie get together with everyone enjoying the weather, company and buffet. Meriel France, Daisy's owner had made up dandie goodie bags for all our 4 legged friends with a note attached saying " Daisy's dream. That one day, every Dandie will be free from hereditary Glaucoma" Michelle Dixon did a wonderful job of tea/coffee making and general hosting.The 2nd research day this year will be held in Edinburgh on Sunday October 22nd, we have 23 Dandies over 5 years old booked in for this.
The South Wales Kennel Association had classes for Dandies without CCs. Our judge was Alan Small who had an entry of 12 dogs with just 2 absent. Best Dog & Best Of Breed was Xoranda Secret Ron Day View to Cloverwood (Glahms Royal Canadian ex Int Ch Cloverwood Wish Upon A Star) owned by Glen Tinsley and bred and handled by Alexander Garrett. He was also Best Puppy and then went onto to Puppy Group 3 under Stephen Bardwell. Reserve BD was Liz Jacka-Slater's Pennywise Lone Ranger. Best Bitch went to Glahms La Boheme (Am Ch Dreamboat Deck The Halls ex Glahms Witch of Wookey Hole) owned by Glen, who also bred the Reserve Best Bitch Cloverwood Duchess May owned by Liz Jacka-Slater.
