We are just back from a lovely weekend ‘up north’ attending The Northern Saluki Club Championship Show and Darlington Championship Show. Darlington had allocated the NSC a ring adjacent to the ring to be used for their show. Our judge, Mrs. Fran Mitchell, was judging Wire-Haired Dacshunds before Salukis. So, our judge elect, John Walton-Haddon, for the NSC started at 9.00. It worked out well. The weather looked overcast to begin but soon cleared after a couple of drops of rain.

Nikki Hill has sent me the following regarding SWF: “Saluki Welfare in Lockdown. While most other pet rescue organisations closed their doors, Saluki Welfare continued their work helping Salukis in need. Working within Covid-19 restrictions, between January 2020 and April 2021 the Wardens arranged a total of 38 rehomings and raised a sum in the region of £10,500 for Saluki Welfare Fund.
Home checking had to be done by video link of course, and they used professional pet couriers much of the time. There were some exceptions in the lockdown regulations regarding animal rescue, which helped a little. And of course, there was always help and advice to be had on the telephone. So well done Saluki Welfare and thank you!”
