Clumber Spaniel Club 2021 Championship Show

Clumber Spaniel Club 2021 Championship Show

By Lesley Knowles, Honorary Secretary, Clumber Spaniel Club

October 3rd 2021

The Clumber Spaniel Club ran their third and final show of the year, the 2021 Championship Show, at Roade Village Hall on 3rd October. Although the club had tried to find an alternative date for this show to avoid a clash with the rearranged SKC show but unfortunately the logistics of postponement were too difficult to overcome.

The show was sponsored by CSJ dog foods who provided prizes of treat bones for every class winner and a bag of food for the Best in Show, Reserve Best in Show, Best Puppy in Show and Best Veteran in Show. The club is very appreciative of the generous sponsorship received from CSJ both for this show and our Open Show held in August.

Gordon Sutherland was our breed judge and he and his wife Eileen deserve special mention for undertaking the long journey from their home in Scotland to be with us for the day, all amidst the threat of fuel shortages! The show attracted an entry of 30 Clumbers who ranged from multi award winning dogs to those attending their first Championship show. Congratulations to Lee Cox and Vanitonia the Force Awakens on winning Best In Show.

Thank you to Eileen Sutherland for taking the photos of our show winners featured below.

Our Special Awards classes were run in the lunch break and had 8 entries. Sadly our scheduled judge, Ian Dawson, was unable to be with us to judge these classes but many thanks to Sue Graves who stepped in at short notice and enabled these classes to run as planned.

CSJ brings a smile to a lockdown puppy rescue Tiggy

CSJ brings a smile to a lockdown puppy rescue Tiggy

By Rosanne Bristow

I brought a dog who was a lock down puppy, collected at 6 weeks from the breeder and sold to a family that had never had a dog let alone a springer.

Six months down the line she was fat, crazy and not a happy dog.

Six months on, she has started her training and moved onto CSJ food. When she came to us, she didn’t like food she was given human food that wasn’t appropriate.

Look how much she loves CSJ. She follows us to the kitchen and sits there smiling until we feed her. en amazing, our latest edition is another lab who adores it too. I’m so glad we stuck with CSJ.

The Four Nations Challenge Gundog International

This year’s event saw the welcomed return of the Four Nations Challenge competition. Three Spaniels and three Retrievers made up the International teams from Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales. From the outset the warm, dry, still weather conditions was going to cause scenting problems, despite the fact that the event was being held some three months later than usual, it still felt like it was being staged in mid July.

The Welsh running order of Aled Jones with  Brynambor Blaze of Barcudwen , Rhys Carpenter with Lynchside Shikra and Nathan Quinn with Whitebeam Warbler made up the Spaniel team, Aled having to substitute Barcudwen Molly for his young dog. The Retriever team was Alan Rees with Fendawood Ecclestone at Delfryd, Andrew Fisher with Kaliture Rooster and Nigel Probert with F.T.Ch. Stauntonvale Buckwheat of Llangynidr.

This year’s event proved to be one of the closest fought international competitions at Scone Palace, Scotland and Ireland battling it out for the top two places respectively  with England and Wales in a close battle for third and fourth. Three dogs returned a top score of 114, Drew Allen, Scottish Retriever and Spaniels, Ireland’s Raymond Wilson and Wales’ Rhys Carpenter .

The International competition turned out to be a bit of a mixed bag with Scotland registering a win after their fourth place at the Game Fair, England in third place after their previous win at the Game Fair and Wales and Ireland reversing their positions.

Despite the disappointing result at Scone Palace, the Team has shown its resilience, consistency and development, each team member personally supporting each other. This can only bode well for future competition.

It was fantastic to have Ceri and Phil, of CSJ K9, at the event with us supporting the Welsh team. A huge thank you to you both for your generosity and continued support.

May I take this opportunity to wish everyone a successful up and coming trialing season.

Diolch yn Fawr
