North Western Poodle Club – June 21st 2019

Elaine & Terry Ward’s Miniature Poodle (Oscar) Pipparel The Look of Luv, 1st in Open Dog and DCC and BIS at the above show in June 2019.

Huge thanks to Judges, Sue Baker and Diane Smith for thinking so highly of our boy and to Karen Laws for handling and preparing him on the day.


Our Members have had some superb results from Crufts 2020 – I’m sure I speak for the rest of the Committee when I say how proud we are of all of them.

Heres a photo of Some of the Club’s Representatives at Crufts, with their well deserved Rosettes.

We’re proud of them all

Therapy Dogs Nationwide

Bridget Meads who is a member of Shoreham Ringcraft Committee and a long term member of the Club has made us especially proud with Dazee (Rockanor Silver Saphire at Jasbri), her beautiful Whippet.  They not only competed in the breed classes but also attended Crufts as representatives of Therapy Dogs Nationwide.

Bridget reports:  “Crufts 2020 was an unbelievable experience for Dazee & me.   As well as qualifying to strut our stuff on the famous green carpet, we had the honour of being awarded the ‘Bonnie Burns Memorial Trophy’ by Therapy Dogs Nationwide! It is for her work with children under the ‘Paws & Read’ scheme which encourages reluctant readers & those needing a tad of TLC as well as helping the scared or phobic kiddies. We had no idea that we had even been suggested for this prestigious award and are gob-smacked 🥰 

“I was stunned at Crufts as I had absolutely no idea we were up for an award!   Dazee is a very calm little whippet when she dons her Therapy uniform & has evolved a niche in working with children.   Her presence encourages reluctant readers to try to read, because, as Dazee can’t read she won’t hear a story unless they do 😉.   They also enjoy explaining the pictures to her & she remains patient & non-judgemental if they struggle.   She is also good if a kiddie is upset & calms them in the incredible way only dogs can.  Recently she has been working with a child who WAS dog phobic, but is now willing to try to interact.   Dazee has lead school assemblies & astounds the staff with her ability to achieve silence & full attention from the children.   On these occasions we also guide the youngsters as to how to treat animals kindly & what to do if a dog frightens you.
At Crufts the KC officer who is in charge of the School Reading program, presented us with our trophy on the Therapy Dogs Nationwide stand!   We hold this for the year as it is awarded annually to the team who have had the most success working with children.
The whippet fraternity decided that this far exceeds BOB as she has beaten at 600+ dogs! A couple suggested she equals Best in Show 😂. She has definitely put whippets in a good light!”

Ria Twilley with Whisper and Forrest (English Springer Spaniels

Ria and Whisper had a fabulous day at Crufts with Whisper taking 2nd place in a lovely puppy class.  (pictured below left & right)

Ria and Forrest also did well with a VHC in Veteran Dog (pictured below centre) 

Janine Naunton and Bow

Janine and Bow did wonderfully well by winning their Post Graduate Bitch class.













Peter Seamarks, Nemo and Ark

Ark was placed 2nd in Post Graduate Dog in a large class – here’s Ark pictured below with his rosette.

Karen & Robin Sandells had a lovely day at Crufts with their two Boston Terriers, William & Lincoln.

William won his Veteran Class and Lincoln was 2nd in a lovely Post Graduate Dog class.   


Claire Burgess & Oscar the Border Terrier had a great day too.

Oscar was placed 3rd in a good sized yearling dog class

(Claire & Oscar pictured above with their Rosette)

Jo Hughes & her Border Terrier, Kitty were placed 3rd in a Yearling Bitch class of 13!   

I’ve been unable to download their photos, so I am hoping they will send me some.

Dr Andreas Schemmel who is one of our members, has sent me a lovely photograph of him, having judged his own breed at Crufts, Japanese Chins.  Disappointingly, I am currently unable to download his photograph.   Hopefully I will be able to remedy that.

If anyone else has any photos or stories or results from their day at Crufts, please pass them on and I will gladly publish them.

We are very grateful to Mitzi Morrison for stepping in at the Eleventh Hour to judge our July match.

Our appointed judge (Gael Stenton) was sadly taken ill and was not able to come.  (However, I’m pleased to say that she has now agreed to judge our September Match).   Unfortunately, I was also ill and missed the July match, which I hear was a good night.  Thank you so much to Treasurer (Pauline Langridge) who pulled out all the stops to find a judge and make things run smoothly on the night.
