She was also Best in Field at the BSFA March meeting and Best in Field at the SGHC Lure Coursing meeting on 15 July. Alison says that she is quite a girl and loves her lure coursing.’
Andrea Ireson has had to undergo another operation. I spoke to her last night and she said she hoped to be home soon again. Andrea had a list of events she had planned for this summer and this ailment was definitely getting in the way. Maya Monk-Schenk is soon to have an operation on her knee so after the usual recovery period hopes to be back in the ring with her new puppy. Bo Forssberg of Khalils Salukis in Sweden had quite a serious operation a few months ago, hopefully he will be back on top in the near future.
This coming weekend will see two Championship Show with breed specialists judging. The first is the Hound Association, which is held at the Staffordshire County Showground. Judge is Peter Yardley and the second, which is on the Sunday is Paignton Show with judge Reina Clark. Good luck to all!
