Well, the good news is that at the KC AGM the members voted not to increase fees especially when one considers items like the Breed Supplement, which we pay dearly for, is 6 months out of date. There have been many serious complaints
Directed at the KC at this time. For the most part it seems that the KC representative attending championship shows have sorted out most of the problems.

It was good to be back at Windsor Championship Show after the extra long break. For those of you who may not remember, last year’s Windsor Show was cancelled due to a double booking. Instead of a dog show it was a horse show. Showers had been promised for the day but it started off quite overcast. As soon as the judging was completed the heavens opened up and it was pouring down. I understand when the Hound Group was called in later there was a great roar of thunder. Personally, I am happy not to be in a field in a thunder and lightning storm. Judging Salukis this year was Colin Ashmore. BCC, BOB was Mary Sanders Parker’s Ch Classicus Olympia with the RBCC to the Garrett, Oakey, Owen partnership’s Glenoak Lunah from Caryna. DCC went to Sarah Sawer’s Ch Canerikie Lucan at Bumpkiss. RDCC was Adele Haddon’s Badavie Don Peppino at Ilsham (IMP). Best Veteran went to Marie Bryce-Smith’s Ch Kasaque Ra Frankel of Saruk.
Next show, East of England, good luck to all those attending.
