Thank you to Louise for the article from the 1936 “Dog World” Annual

I've been following the blog for some time and really enjoy it. I thought everyone might like to see the attached picture, although you all might know about the beer anyway. My boyfriend's Dad is a big real ale fan and got us this pump clip, I thought it was brilliant! It's described as 'A light coloured ale with a distinctive bite.' Have yet to try some! We are hoping to purchase a Bedlington puppy later this year. Emma x
Thank you Emma and welcome to Bedlingtonpictures. I have never seen this beer on sale but I expect some of the bloggers from Northumberland are familiar with this brew. I like the “distinctive bite” term to describe the ale!
I have 2 tickets for any day at Crufts 2011, I cannot go this year so wondered if anyone would like these tickets? I think the fairest way to deal with this is to give them to the highest donation to Bedlington Rescue and Rehoming and the cut off date is February 24th. 2011.
Frances Fuller head co-ordinator
I will contact Frances today about the tickets for Auntie Natalie!

Well done to Mark and “VY” what a great day for your puppy and the breed!!! We will keep everything crossed for you today at South Shields.
The workshop at Stoneleigh was interesting. Ian Horsewood was there with his family and Belle (Aireview Special Print). Nigel King was also there, but didn't bring Amber. Unfortunately the grooming lecture was based on grooming a Westie, which are hand stripped, so wan't a lot of good to us. However, the handling lecture with Michael Gadsby was very interesting and informative, particularly for a novice like myself. He looked at the whole approach to handling, from the way you treated your puppy at home, right through to handling in the ring.
I have attached a few photos. One is of Ian Horsewood's Belle, also a photo of his grandaughter Chelsea Page, who is an up and coming junior handler. She attended the junior handling clinic at the workshop today. The final photo is of the 'boys', Chokko, John and Nigel enjoying a cup of tea!
Thank you to Louise for the photo and report. It was a shame that the workshop was on the same day as the MBTC show. I would certainly have joined you, I would love to have attended the handling lecture.

On Saturday 26th February Eukanuba and Dog World will be holding a Dog Show Learning Experience Workshop including Grooming and Handling Demos. To Take place at the Kennel Club Buildings Stoneleigh
Do go along and meet up with Louise and Chokko who will be attending the workshop.
Well between long days looking after senior people and walking little Jazz and Sapphire I have just enough time to take 5 minutes out to catch my breath. This weekend is my weekend to work and I'll just have time to walk Jazz and Sapphire. in between shifts. They can help me to check on our friend’s birds as he is away working down south.
My job up to now has been an eye opener and yet I'm enjoying it. When I finish and walk through the door at home I get attacked by Jazz and Sapphire. They are so pleased to see me that they wag their tails so much I have to watch that their tails don't drop of., The other day when I went to the office I looked into a shop window and started laughing to myself for I'm a fan of Alexandra the meerkat from the compare the meerkat.com adverts. In the shop window they had 4 meerkat statues of him in different costumes ( I know simples). I didn't tell Jazz and Sapphire just in case they wanted them!!!, When I get another quiet moment I shall do another report and hopefully see you all at Crufts with Jazz and Sapphire.
Thank you Ian lovely to catch up with you and the dogs, I am so pleased your job is going well and we will look forward to seeing you at Crufts.

Saturday 26th Midland Bedlington Terrier Club Open Show at Tollerton
Sunday 27th Cheltenham and District Canine Association at Three Counties Showground.
If you are new to bedlingtons or are thinking about having a puppy do go along to one of the shows and meet us. We welcome new people to the breed and are very happy to show you our dogs and answer any questions. Bedlington day at Crufts is on Saturday 12th March. with 100 bedlingtons entered Crufts would give prospective owners a chance to see the top show dogs in action and meet the breeders.
Click Here for Details
OOPS Forgot to say do visit “Discover Dogs” where every day you can meet the bedlingtons and talk to experienced owners and breeders of show dogs. Also on the stand meet the rescue dogs and special people who have given a forever home to an unwanted bedlington.
Sorry things have been busy and we haven't been in touch for a while: Last week we came back refreshed and relaxed from our ski holiday in St Anton. Beautiful sun every day, it was more like March than early February. There was an installation from Anthony Gormley: 100 life-size men spread around the whole area. We only spotted about 20 'Gormleys', but some might have been buried in the snow.
Here's the site with more details:
While we were away Ed and Ossie had a lovely time at a local farm that has an excellent kennel, they always come home tired from their long walks. We didn't think Rosie and Jasper would be too happy in a kennels, so they had a lovely time with our friends. We understand that they were spotted out and about in Consett. We were also happy with them there, since Jasper wasn't very well the week before. We came home one evening, and he was coughing and struggling to breath. The vet found that he had laryngitis and tonsillitis which improved with some antibiotics, but he also has a leaky heart valve. Fortunately this is mild and his heart tablet which helps the heart muscle to pump better and also reduces the strain on the heart, seem to be working well. He is back to his energetic self, playing and chasing his ball round the field. The tablets are also meat flavour, so he thinks he's having a treat. Looking forward to meeting every one at Crufts Best wishes Sarah
Thank you Sarah sounds like you really enjoyed your holiday but I bet you still missed those doggie cuddles!! It sounds like the dogs had a lovely time and probably hoping it won’t be to long before you go away again! Great news that Jasper has recovered and feeling well, you must have been a relieved seeing him playing and chasing a ball. We will look forward to seeing you at Cruts in a couple of weeks time.

Another beautifully carved walking stick carved very differently to Derek’s stick but just as intricate, another real labour of love. Many thanks to Stuart for the photo.
Tina’s husband Tony carved these fantastic walking sticks, It takes a very special person with immense skill and patience to carve small animal and bird heads in such fine detail.
Entries close on March 2nd, schedule details in “Open Show Dates” in the index column

Iv'e been getting something for my old age when it crops up, now, now we'll have no comments on that, it will do fine for when I take the old girls out for their walks. I do know one blogger will be very interested in the stick. Hope to see some of you down at Discover Dogs at Crufts. The Makem
Thank you Derek what a wonderful carving a real labour of love! I can just imaging the girls, and you walking up hill and down dale with your cane for support! Changing the subject do hope Eileen is safe and not caught up in the terrible earthquake that shook Christchurch last night!

Mr. Rich plans to sell Bedlington jerseys at his minor league ballparks in the United States. He also hopes to persuade members of Bedlington terrier dog clubs in the United States to buy jerseys, shirts, jackets, scarves and hats featuring the woolly pooch on the official team crest. Proceeds from merchandise sales will go to the soccer team.
Apparently Bedlington Terrier FC Merchandise has been flying off the shelves. A lot of merchandise has gone to America with orders also from Scandinavia and Australia.
Just discovered a beautiful little bedlington bitch called Pearl, approx 8 months old, on The Little Dog Rescue, awaiting a home, she looks lovely and is in the Mansfield area, and is being fostered at the moment. Carol
Thank you Carol, if only I had room for just one more!!! What a wonderful opportunity to adopt a bedlington puppy, how could anyone resist this cute face!
I think this little girl is about to be adopted. click on the link and scroll to the bottom of the page.

I bought this spoon on Ebay yesterday. With apologies to any other bloggers who might have been bidding, I couldn't resist it! Louise
How unusual Louise I have not see another spoon like this before, has it been specially made or is it very old?

Wondered if you could put on the blog about a missing Bedlington please? Her name is Cindy, she is 5years old and has gone missing from Swaffham, Priory Fen in Cambridgeshire, She has only been gone since the 18th, and hopefully will be found quickly, the details are on the dog lost site, but there is no picture as yet, Carol
Thank you Carol. Click here for more details on the “dogs lost” website. Hope Cindy is found very soon!
FINALLY the wallpaper is off of the wall in the bedroom. I had it on so good, that I had to fix damage to the wall that it caused pulling it off. Had a chance to start to paint a bit & then Friday evening Storey vomited......yellow, semi-gloss acrylic paint!! Right on my carpet!! In a fit of cleaning up paint on the carpet, paint on her muzzle (apparently she had he muzzle in the paint bucket) & calling the vet, it was a bit hectic!! Thank goodness my vet specializes in toxicology.....he told me to give her milk to dilute the paint & if she kept the milk down I could feed her supper. He said the paint ingestion would cause gastric upset, so I kept her in the crate. The milk stayed down, so a couple hours later I fed her supper.....stayed down. She acted fine, no distress what so ever. She never did vomit again, never had any loose poohs and carried on as if nothing had happened. How she got to the paint I have no idea, because the door was closed to keep the cat out....I guess maybe one time I didn't pull it shut tight and "someone" pushed it open and gained access. I swear this dog has a cast iron stomach!! Chris said, when he saw it was Storey, he knew she would be fine.....she scared the dickens out of me though! So..when I start to paint today, the paint can WILL NOT BE on the floor.....A side from that, we have had a quiet week...the weather warmed enough to move plants back outdoor and the girls helped dig a huge dead rosemary bush out of the garden...the yard is drying up and the grass is starting to grow....we are SO ready for this!! I will be going off island, for a work related event with Chris (his work) and Rebecca will be tending the girls....I am not near a anxious about leaving them as I was the last time....it is only for 1 night, so I think I will be fine. The girls will have a blast because the get to get TONS of pets AND they get on the sofa! That is a special treat for them since I got the new sofa & there is room for all 5 of them plus 2 people & still tons of room for the cat! That is it from my side of the pond. Think spring!
Tricia, Greyson, Rose ,Willo ,Amelia & Storey (My Woofs in Sheeps Clothing)
Goodness Tricia I can’t imagine any dog liking the taste of acrylic paint. You would think the strong smell would put them off. Luckily no damage, but you must have been so worried with the thought of paint sticking to the stomach walls!! Enjoy your night away as the girls will be fine and enjoy the freedom of rolling around on the new sofa and doing things that are not allowed when mum is home! Not very spring like for us but at least dry for our agility class today.

There is an Open Show on 20th March at Eston Sports Academy, Normanby Road, South Banbk, Middlesborough TS6 9AE and the Judge is Roy North. Secretary is Mrs Freda Marshall - tele no. 01325 312484. Unfortunately entries offically close postmarked Monday 21st February. Roy North is hoping to be KC Assessed at this show and obviously needs a decent entry. Is there anybody out there, who lives in that area, that could enter under him? I think if exhibitors phone Mrs Marshall and say they are putting in an entry she will be only to happy to accept it. (He is actually being assessed via the NBTC and it is really nothing to do with me but I can't help interferring!) Dorothy Owen
Thank you Dorothy, come on folks if you are in striking distance of Middlesborough ring Mrs Marshall and enter. I know there is a minimum requirement needed for an assessment.

The Kennel Club has announced a selection of dates in 2011 when visitors will have the opportunity to take a tour of the Kennel Club’s head office in London’s Piccadilly and its wonderful art collection.

Some of you will know Eileen is out in New Zealand at the present time and by the looks of it is enjoying every moment. The bakers certainly looks nice, bit different from the Tesco bakery counter.
Eileen has managed to go to a dog show while out there. No Bedlingtons at the show but she did had a chat with the owner of a Fox Terrier. He said he had not seen a Bedlington for years. However we do know of Bedlingtons in NZ and Eileen is hoping to see them before she comes home. One breeder out there has a bitch from Kevin Mumford which has had 4 pups from an Ausbed dog which I met in the South Island when I was there in 2007. The same bitch has had another two litters of 7 pups each from another Australian dog from the Caeruleus kennel. Again I met up with all the Australian dogs and breeders who both prefer and have British bred dogs so the outcome of the breeding should be good. One of the pups from these litters has gone to a show person who has also imported another Australian dog from the Piperdene kennel. The breeder did comment that most interest in the Bedlington was from expats now in NZ and Australians, she reckons the Kiwis prefer larger dogs. There loss. So hopefully the Bedlington Breed may now prosper in NZ and there will certainly be more to see when anyone from over here pays a visit.
As for North East gossip. Some worrying news as regards dog walking here in the North East. One of the country parks up here, Hardwck Country Park at Sedgefield is to ban dogs on the loose after April 1st. I hope this will not be the start of others doing the same. One reason they say is to prevent fouling. I would say that if an owner does not pick up the fouling when the dog is loose they certainly wont pick it up if the dog is on a lead.
Another snippet, Eileen has her 1st appointment at judging thanks to the encouragement of a couple of North East Bedlington judges. It's the Durham County Canine Associations first show and will be held on the 17th July. Schedules from Mrs C Reid tel:- 07979893827, email:- firstname.lastname@example.org or download at www.durham-k9.co.uk Only snag about this date we wont be able to attend the fun day this year, Ahhhhhhh!!!!!. So as Eileen's away it's back to the tin opener or the carry out. The Makem
Thank you Derek, I bet Eileen is having loads of fun in the sun while you are stuck in the cold opening up yet another can of baked beans! It is interesting to read of the breeding using British bloodlines in NZ, just a shame the breed is not more popular. Great to hear Eileen is taking up judging but you will certainly be missed at the fun day unfortunately you can’t be in two places at once! I will add the Durham show to the Open Show Dates in the index column.

It's Agatha's 5th birthday today, she's our little Valentine. I had hoped to send you a photo of her with her blog birthday pork pie, but I'm afraid that she ate it before I had a chance to get the camera out!
Anyway, here she is sleeping off the pork pie. Agatha's no show girl, and has never won a prize, so Chokko bought her a special birthday rosette at the show yesterday. Louise
A very happy birthday to Agatha, she may be not be a show girl but she is definitely top pin up girl in Parker and Chokkko’s eyes!
