Here we go, Enid has found a new vet in MERTHYR she is really impressed with the practice the name is VICTORIA VETS PRACTICE, the vet Katherine Lloyd, has never seen a bedlington with copper toxicocis in her 10 years as a vet, I hope she never does, and would like to be kept informed of any new developments on the subject. The cost of the booster was 28 pounds, that is a lot cheaper than my vets, I paid more like 40 pound, as always it pays to shop around, I am sure Enid will add to my comments.
I bet many of you did not know that besides Bedlingtons Tim Bouse's other passion is boxing, he helps to train around 50 boys, but sadly the club called All Saints Boxing Club, has lost their training hall, so if they can't find another hall, then there will be 50 boys with nothing to do, it seems such a shame after all the work the trainers have put in.
Paula will not be at the next show L.K.A. as the is having a new kitchen fitted, the worst room to have a make over as we all use the kitchen so much, besides that she has a rotten cold, but the dogs don't care, just look where they have made their bed.
Steve and Tracey have a new puppy Bella the lurcher, what a cracker, they have sent a photo of her catching her first rabbit, Kevin who bred her will be so pleased.
This is for skye from Wales, goodby and god bless!
Its time for you to go to heavens new, where run and play is all you do.
With angels you will play tonight, and sleep in a place that's o so bright
We will remember you for ever more, the love you gave us and much much more
Only one thing left for us to say, that's we will meet again some day
Kisses and cuddles we will have once more, my little Skye who we do adore.
Good night, and god bless my little lamb.

On Thursday night at ring craft the exact opposite happened! Jack wouldn't settle and wanted to play with all other dogs,then of a all sudden he was going straight up and down the mats and I was even shown a few junior handling tips by my new friend Naiomi.
I hope to have some photographs soon. The lady who runs the ringcraft has a 6 mth old, blue bedlington puppy. She says the puppy's father is Stewart' s Champion Lowbrook Llaffan .
We have been following the story of Skye and hope she recovers soon. I met Mathew and Anne-Marie at the Funday,and they kindly let me stroke the puppy they had.
Victoria and Jack

Maurice starts this season's work next week on our shoot near Newbury and after six years he is starting to show an interest in feather as well as fur. Much as I love him, I've never known a Bedlington like him, he's a real sensitive woos. I'll let you know how he gets on in future reports. Too much "working" blood seems to have dulled his instincts as all his "show" bred ancestors have been keen to kill on sight. His granny, Ch.Skewhill Cu Free at Lowbrook being particularly bloodthirsty; even, to my horror, leaping on a muntjac she encountered in the beaters line. She also "marked" rabbit holes for the ferrets and amazed the 'keeper by going on full point to pheasants, not going in until told. His mum, Lowbrook Lilo Lil, was obsessed by ducks and we often successfully ran her around the flight pond after a shoot to pick up the wounded after the "proper" gun dogs had supposedly done their job.
Does anybody have any tips on how to get him fired up, 'cos he's a bit of an embarrasment at the moment.
See y'all at Midland Counties.

Sunday saw the North East gettogether for all owners of Bedlington Terriers, as usual it was 3 hours enjoyed by all, this meet saw another 3 new couples with Bedlingtons turn up for the first time. These people were pet owners who thought it brilliant that they could meet up with other like minded people & pick everyones brains (didnt take long LOL). All had several questions to ask & went away armed with web site details to purchase everything from clippers to Thornit & of course the site details for the Blog & NBTC.
I am sure that Lesley will be sharing a few more of the snaps in the coming weeks.
Heres a thought, why don't we Bedlington owners attending the last champ show of the year at LKA, have a bit of a party? I am sure if we all bring a bit of ''tucker'' we could knock up a buffet, for after the judging? Good idea / bad idea?
See some of yer Saturday, good luck to all!

This makes for interesting reading, new vaccination protocols are out in America. The new protocol will be taught at veterinary schools. Links below include an article about the protocols and then the presentation itself.
Frances Fuller who has been involved with Bedlington rescue for many years, up sticks and moved to Wales this summer. I rang Frances yesterday to see how she is settling into her new home. Frances is enjoying her move to Wales and at the moment is very busy in having a new kennel block installed. New windows are being fitted into the house and also work is being carried out on the roof. When the renovations are complete she intends to call on the rescue centers in the area, make herself known, inform them that she will take any Bedlingtins and re home them to suitable families. Rheanon tells me that her new puppy's first show is LKA. so good luck to them.
A little reminder to caravan / camper people, we have had a few nights of frost so don't forget to drain the water down and leave the taps open, most important take the shower head off, as water can easily build up and freezes the joints.
Sad news now Diane Herbert's mother died on the 6th Oct after a long illness, our thoughts are with Diane and her family.
Talk to you all next week, Maureen

We had a lovely day when we met Ed ,Rebecca and Ralphie at Minnis Bay,Birchington. Jack and Ralphie had great fun running up and down the beach and play-fighting. I am sure Jack is looking forward to meeting Ralphie again.

I might Be first I might be last but it is nice for me to take part
I don't really care but when I get there I will be ready to go,
Go up and down then stand around till judge makes up his mind,
But win or lose I still get a hug because my dads really kind,
I will try and be good and do as I'm told but sometimes its really hard,
But my mam said that if I was I might get a red card,
All this fuss don't matter to me but it does make my dad smile,
So I will be good and I will do as I'm told cause its only for a while
Many thanks to Steve for the photo and Badger for the poem.
